One of my companions received her visa and left a week and a half ago and is in Arizona. She was excited to finally be able to move to her mission. 

The work is great. we are working with this family that smokes. they are struggling. but we decided that we are going to get them married to help them see that they can complete goals in their lives... i am excited to see what happens!! they are going to get married on the 28th.

We did have had some letdowns in this past week but... attitude is everything.  We jus keep working hard and I know things will work for the best.

Onc lesson I’ve learned on my mission is that we have to choose to strengthen our testimony every day! seriously. because if we don’t choose to make it bigger... it just will automatically get smaller. a testimony can’t stay in one place. it will either get smaller or bigger. the choice is ours.

Love you all...

Conference was amazing. I loved it! It really helped me. Man... I love conference so much. with all my heart. I wish it was every weekend...

My comps are awesome. It is scourging hot here but I am so happy! We are working hard and seeing miracles. Hermana Pineda has 8 months on the mission and is from Mexico and Hermana Escobar has like a week on the mission and is from Guatemala. She is really going to Arizona on her mission, just waiting for the visa. This area is gold. The people are awesome. They are really receptive and I am so excited to help them. The members love us... There has never been hermanas here. We are the only hermanas in the zone…

Well! This last week was crazy. On Wednesday I went back to San Lucas Toliman to do divisions. It was like the best and worst day ever. Because I got to see everyone that I love so much but it was the worst because I had to say goodbye again!! Man. I love those people so much. It was an adventure. I love San Lucas Toliman and I am so happy that I was able to serve there for 5 months and return again.

Also... I had changes!! I am now in Hunapu Escuintla. I am opening the area with two other hermanas... One just left the MTC and the other has like 8 months on the mission. Hermana Escobar and Hermana Pineda!! We are in an area that is super hot!! wow. I am like dying of heat but I am so happy!! I love it here. It is amazing! The people are so nice and really receptive. I know that we are going to see miracles here! Man. I love the mission!

Love you all and hope you have a good conference weekend! Learn lots!

We had a cool experience with an investigator. Two weeks ago we found him. His wife is a member and they were going to church a year ago every Sunday. He is awesome. Seriously. He couldn't get baptized because he had to wait a while because of some of his past. He completed the goals and everything that the president made with him but then the new president came and set more time and more goals. He kept trying but got discouraged. I believe that now this is his time. We just have to get some things worked out with the church offices and send a letter to the first presidency. It was a miracle because all of a sudden president Markham was at our church on Sunday so we had them talk together and i am so happy for him because i think that this is his time to be able to be baptized and clean up his past.

love ya!

New Companion


It is going good here. my new comp is Hermana Ziga from Mexico. She is really cool and we get along really well. I have really lucked out on the mission because I have gotten along really well with all my comps. I love all of them a whole lot! I am nervous because I think I will stay here another 6 weeks and then finish the mission in a new area.

We just continue to work hard and rely on the Lord to help us overcome the challenges we face. 

Love you all.

buenas tardes

Something crazy that's been happening is a few of the days this last week we had some strong temblores. Un temblor is like a mini earthquake. At 10 one night there was a pretty strong one. And another night, well maybe at like 3 in the morning, we were fast asleep and our beds started shaking. It actually woke ME up. Those who don't know me.. nothing wakes me up. But everything was shaking pretty hard and it was way cool!! like for 30 seconds or so. That is pretty long for a temblor. I love Guatemala!! so cool!!

So that family that Jose brought to church is so AWESOME. They came to church again and they are totally going to get baptized. They just have to get married first. I know we will see this miracle this month.
We had a cool experience this last week. Elder Duncan, the area president from the 70 talked to us. I love that we can all receive our personal revelation as we listen to the servants of God. I received some revelation about how I can become a better missionary and I'm striving to apply it to become a better instrument in Gods hands. Something else that I was reminded of is explained in one of my favorite quotes. President Gordon B Hinckley said, "Quiere ser feliz? OlvĂ­dese a si mismo y pierdese en esta gran causa." In english... "Do you want to be happy? Forget yourself and get lost in this great cause." Well I am pretty happy so I guess I have gotten myself pretty lost here in Guatemala. But I received some revelation on how I can lose myself even more in this great work.

I also spoke for the first time in this ward. I talked about Charity. A quote that I love from President Monson says, "La verdadera caridad es el amor en accion." It translates to something like... " True charity is love in action." We are here to love like Christ loves!! To serve like Christ serves. So WE NEED TO DO IT.

have a good week!! les amo a todos.
