So this week of miracles!!!

So this week was actually pretty amazing!!! so this week we were contacting and we found this lady. We were trying to look for a house of a menos activo and we found asked her for the person. And anyway I wanted to say thanks and leave but I got an impression that I should say that we were missionaries and give the whole schpeel. Well after I said that I was like can we share a message with you? she was like yes! come in! so right as we sat down she goes well right before you got here, I was crying! I had a horrible fight with my boyfriend and I was praying that God would give me comfort and an answer to my prayers. I need to feel him here with me. I said send me somebody to help me and then you guys came!.... I was lke what? haha she was like you are sent from God and I will listen to you. So we taught her and she loved it and then we put her with a baptism date and we came back the next day and she was sharing all her friends the book of mormon and took a pic of us and posted it on facebook with the caption my angels, I felt a little uncomfortable with that she was saying that we were angels but it was really cool that we were an answer to her prayer! 
The next day we had nothing to do in the night. All of our plans dropped and we were left with nowhere to go and nothing to do. At night its a little dangerous to be just wandering the streets. So I was like ok lets pray. So we prayed to find a person to teach but we only had 30 min till we had to be home. I felt the spirit strong to go and visit on of the contacts that we had made the day before. So we went there and they were like thanks but no. So I was like ok... what now? so I had this feeling to cross the street. So I crossed the street and contacted a house. Nobody came out. Ok.... next house.... literally the one next door. So we contacted that house and this lady came out. We gave her a card with a pic of Christ on it and she goes whoa,  I have goosebumps. And she starts to explain that she literally was being visited by the missionaries like 40 years before, but her parents didn't ever let her be baptized. She was really upset and she said that just recently her parents had both died and she feels like now she can investigate the church! so we gave her a book of mormon and she started to cry and was like I know that this is what I need! so we set up a time to come back cause she had family that was leaving and was like hey! we got to go! so I was going to leave when I felt that I should say do you want to be baptized? so I said it and she goes Yes. WHAT?!?!!?! so we left and I was like jumping a little.... ok a lot.... only the taxis saw, haha, but we came home right on time and started our studies.... it was amazing!! The Lord really does work and prepare people for the gospel! I love this work that I'm doing! WE worked super hard this week and found milagros! 
We also are teaching one of the elders investigators and she is awesome! She iis progressing  a ful! and loves it! She came to church and the light of christ that you see in her eyes is amazing! Everyday that we pass its more and more! She's gonna be baptized the 10th! haah! 
Anyways I hope that you all had a good week!

Love you guys lots!!

To Mom: 
a ful is spanish and I'm spelling it right and all those things I'm spelling in spanish haha! I don't remember the english anymore! haha! its kinda funny actually haha I'm like freaking out.. I'm gonna be home in 6 months! and I don't want to leave! haah! I'm at that point now and the cambio is like flying by! bueno, now doing ok with the comp. I'm trying to be patient and ya.... I think that has been my entire mission..... patience haha! I told president that and he laughed and was like ya... haha ! By The way he says hi and is praying for you guys!  

Ya president helped me feel better. He sent me an email last week... welll its the weekly emails that we get and he said that they, hermana and president,  love me alot and that they are praying for me. So I saw them this week tooo because we had interviews again. So I gave hermana Wilson a hug and it was awesome! I love them so much!Who would've thought that I would have so much contact with them in my mission! haha! They are awesome! haha anyways... so they are like really worried about what is going on and they said that they are here if I need anything and they were like just focus on the work... The time will come when you hear that they have passed on, but you have just got to work super hard. Don't give yourself time to think about it cause that's when you are gonna break down. You can do this. So that was really nice to hear. And en verdad I'm really happy that they are here for me. I feel so much closer to christ its not even funny. I never thought that it would be this way. I see the light in my eyes more than ever and its super weird... haha like a good weird... wierd... haha I realized that this week and was like whoa... haha
Mom everything is gonna be ok. I know that this is hard. its hard for me too. thankfully we have the plan of salvation right? I don't know what I would do if we didn't. I have met people here that don't think that. They think it just ends. How sad. I get really sad when I hear that cause they are literally wrong. I can't believe that. I know that there is life after death. And when we need Him the most, He is always there for us. I have realized that. For a while i was feeling really alone here in the mission. Like I felt abandoned by God,  and it was weird, you would think that when you are a missionary that you would feel close. but after I talked to president and hermana cowley, I felt an overwhelming feeling that He is there! I was thinking that he wasn't. but He was there the entire time! I just needed somebody to tell me. haha and nowI couldn't have more hope and be more happier! I really can't believe it and its only 1 year I've been on the misison. Its amazing to me. I know that He is there for you! try praying on your knees everynight. Its weird but it helps haha. In some ways I wish I could be there to help with everything but I know that my place is here in the mission. I know that you can do it and I've been praying for you guys everyday. 

Anyway... i want to go to CA to see the graves and stuff. In someways I want to call and talk to you guys but I don't know the rules and I think you would have to talk to them if you want me to call. 
Ya God give us challenges to strengthen us, but sometimes we need help from others to support it too haha. I've learned that haha but ya.... 

I love you lots!!

esta semana...

Entonces tuvimos una intercambio with the hermana liders and I was with HERMANA COWLEY!!! for those of you who have forgotten.... she was my trainer!!! so it was super fun and we found some investigators!!! it was super awesome to be with her again and then we realized that we have been apart for almost a year! we were talking about old times and what has happened in our missions since then and we have had really similar experiences haha! it was super funny! But as we were walking and trying to find people to teach, we came up to this house and this girl Camila left the house and she let us teach her.So we taught her the restoration and the spirit was super stong! and at the end she goes i know that this church is true. i know it! WHAT!!!! haha i was like whoa! It really is the spirit that teaches and we just bring it with the message, but it is him that helps them feel that this is true! it was amazing! Anyways i asked her if she wanted to be baptized and she said yes but i totally forgot to ask her with a baptism date! ugh! haha! but it was a super cool lesson.

Anyways we are just finding miracles everyday here! I'm super happy about that! There are people here just waiting! 

haha Anyways i hope that this week was awesome for you guys!

Photos of Amumbay

The towers in purple are a special spot
(In Amumbay).

sooooooo im in AMAMBAY!!!!!

So for those of you who dont know where Amambay is, it is in ASUNCION!!! like just imagine San Fransisco, without the ocean, and there you have it! that's where I am now and I'm freaking out! its like crazy city! there are SOOOOO many stores and sooo many people alll who are super rich! like they have cars and like we have stores like rich clothes, american store clothes on every corner and its nuts!! haha! if you go online and look up asuncion like a picture of it and you will see like 4 tall buildings in the skyline and there you go! I'm in the center of that! haha its so wierd and im still getting used to it! The ward is awesome! like every person that I have met is super nice and want to talk to me in english, and their english is really good too! haha! They are all excited to have an american missionary serving there because most all of them have visited the USA andthey have family there. so we have spent time talking about the USA! haha its been along time since I did that! haha!

So the people in the ward remind me of the US too! Like how the ward functions and everything! Us missionaries just focus on our investigators and reactivating like the missionaries do in the US! haha its sooo wierd.... haha but ya!

So this week i got here and my comp told me that they have an investigator that is ready for baptism, so naturally I wanted to get to know the person. His name is Dan Juan and he is investigating the church because his wife recently died and before she died, she was wanting to be baptised and he said no. So she died and now he feels guilt and is really interested in the church. So I had this feeling to ask if he had his lessons and my comp said ya he does. Ok but the feeling kept bugging me all week andwe didn't have an opportunity to teach him this week. So on sunday he was there and was asking alot of questions about the Word of Wisdom. I was like weird, and then again I felt like we should talk to him about the lessons again. Ok so he is also friends with the Stake President who is in our ward. So we went to their house to eat when the President started to tell us that he NEVER had the lessons!  I wanted to say YES! because I had been feeling that this whole time. it was a reassurance for me that this man is ready, but he still needs the lessons. and that I'm listening to the spirit! I'malways wanting to listen to the spirit and be that missionary that follows the spirit. IT was an experiencia that showed me that I am listening to the spirit. so it made me happy! 

I was so sad to leave La Floresta,  butI'm  gonna trust God and know that I'm  supposed to be here!

Thanks for the Birthday wishes!! and listen to 22 by taylor swift for me!!!! haha

Love you guys lots!

I was super sad to leave and so was the floresta they had plans for my birthday! so ya... if you want to drop a hint to hermana Paredes about my birthday that would be great cause at this point my comp isn't saying anything. its all about her! thankfully I feel like I'm only gonna have hermana huarsaya for one cambio. thank goodness. 

ANyways I'm gonna read about nana and stuff.... i hope that she's ok and that everything will be ok!

So i just found out about cambios... and I'm going to Amumbai! its like zona 1 and I'm  with the hija de my comp now... her name is hermana guarsaiba and shes from peru. so ya! 

So this week we visited carmen and finished her lessons and we gave her a huge triple becasue she can't read the Book of Mormon in the normal size so we gave it to her yesterday and she was super happy! haha it was pretty awesome!
Also this week we had intercambios with the hermana lideres and I went to their area 3 bocas. So while we were walking around we found a reference that they had that they couldn't contact before. So we went there and the lady came out all like no I don't want to join your church I'm  catholic but not. haha so we were talking and then I had the impression to ask about if she believed in life after death. and she was like yes and then broke down and started to cry and told me that she had lost her son like 1 year ago that day and that after he died she had a dream with him and heaven. She then cried some more and talked about how she knows now that there is life after death and that he is with her for always. I was like Plan of salvation! and so we talked about that and now she's open to hearing the missionaries. I was like whoa! we walked away and hermana lily who was with me was like whoa. haha soI Don't  know if she'll go to church, but itwas pretty  cool to be a part of that.  

anyways... here are some pics of my area and carmen and my comp!

Love you guys lots!
