This week was great. Really Hermana Boyer and I love this area with all of our hearts! Seriously, I never want to leave!! I was super tired this week because Sunday eveing we went camping! I know right, but yeah we went camping with all the sisters in the mission. It was a blast and super spiritual, it reminded me of my girls camp days. How I miss them!! Anyways so I pretty much didn´t sleep and well I was so tired the ENTIRE week. A lot of people asked about the dark circles under my eyes, like it´s any of their business. Saturday night we had a family home evening with a less active family and it was so awesome. We taught about The Book of Mormon and holy how I love hearing peoples testimonies of that book. This family seriously is the bomb, they are converts and well when the missionaries taught them about The Book of Mormon they weren´t really convinced but they prayed one night to have the desire to read it and to feel it´s power. So then they finished the book in like 3 days and recieved a powerful testimony of it reality. It made me remember my testimony of The Book of Mormon and man oh man, am I grateful that I read and prayed about the book. I know it was written for us in these days and every time I read it I recieve revelation. It is the best guide in this confused world. 

​My companion and I. 
Have a great week.

Happy Valentine's Day!

This week was great. Last Monday after our zone meeting we came home and found that the door was wide open, someone broke into our house and stole stuff. So rude. So this week we lived with 2 other sister until we found a house. Overall a super crazy week but man we had some awesome lessons with our investigators.For reals though we are teaching a woman that is like 70 years old. Juana lives with her daughter and just recently her daughter and all her family were baptized except for her. Seriously though she goes to church every week and reads The Book of Mormon often. We had an awesome lessson with her, she told us that she feels like she is just in the way of everything,that she is just a hassle. That is when her grandson shared how he felt about her and the sweet lady just started crying. The Spirit was so strong and after that she accepted a date to be baptize. It was such a special lesson to me of the importance it is to express our love. Whether it be by just having patience or random expressions of love, it really does make all the difference. Charity is one of the biggest lessons that I have learned on my mission, seriously the only way that I can help my companions ovecome their weaknesses is by loving them. Love truley is the essence of The Gospel, charity comes when we accept people for how they are always giving them the benefit of the doubt. 
This week was so hard but I am grateful for these oppertunities to grow. The Savior lives and I know that I am not here to EARN heaven but rather LEARN it. 

Have a great week.

New companion

I am super happy!! I am staying here in San Buenaventura. Seriously I love this area, there is so much work and the members are always willing to acompany us. I have had tons of spiritual experiences with my companion here, but I will now be recieving an American Hermana Boyer. I am super excited, I haven't had an American companion for long time. I am going to miss Hermana Angel tons though, seriously I have loved hearing her incredible testimony these weeks. And they divided our area so now it is tiny! This mission is super small and well they keep sending missionaries so my president keeps dividing areas. Almost every ward here has atleast 3 pair of missionaries. In this ward the 3 are sister missionaries, woo sister power.
