Last dinner together at the pension 

Hey followers! Soooooooo I'm officially out of my training!!!! 

Im getting my new companion today! I was in the MTC with her so I already know her a little! Her name is Hemana Miño and she´s Argentinian, so ya gurls gonna be speakin full argetinian soon #meshamolahermanaburgos. 

Since she's from my MTC group that means she's new too, and she's coming to my area so she's gonna be more lost than I am and I'm already suupperr lost.

 I have no idea what I'm doing yet and worse, I have to show her everything and shes gonna be like depending on me to show her how everything is in the area but aahhhhhh I don't even have the hang of things yet and when we dont know what to do were supposed to call our district leader to help us, but my new district leader literally only has one more transfer than me so he is equally as scared and clueless and freaked out as me so yeah, im FREAKING OUT butttt I that's the mish so I guess I just have to suck it up or whatever. 

On top of everything I ALREADY lost my phone!! (but dont freak out people, were solving that problem). yeah, giving me responsibility was a bbaadddd idea lol so yeah, everyone pray for me this week, I'm gonna need all the help I can get.

Anywayssss, update on stuff happening, its been getting like, super cold here in the mornnigs and at night, and our water is freezing, so taking a freezing shower in cold weather is soo not fun, so to fix that I started boiling water and putting it in this big bucket, so I shower out of a bucket now. and its crazy I can literally wash my entire body thoroughly with less than a bucket of water, like do you guys even realize how much water we waste when we shower? Ya gurl is becoming mad eco friendly and efficient over here. 

That's all the updates for now. Tune in next week to see how many stress breakdowns I had. Wish me luck!

Almost done with my training!, Trusting in the Lord!

Sending you guys a kiss with my little friend 

Hey followers! Sorry I flaked out on you guys last week, but I had to go to Arequipa and get my ID thingy so I´m not ilegal anymore. 

Anyways, this is my LAST WEEK before the transfers, which means its my last week of training! Sooo exciting but terrifying at the same time, cause now I actually have to know how to do stuff like on my own now, which is horrifying. 

Im also sad cause I'm most likely going to get separated from my mother, which means I have to like, adapted to living with a whole different person, again, but I guess thats just how the mission is. I just hope I get to stay in my area a bit longer.

Since we basically had to start from scratch, things finally started picking up just in these past few weeks, and I want to be able to stay and see it keep growing and see the progress of the investigators we have now. Honestly, one comes to love the people they teach and the people they work with in the ward SSOOOO MUCCHHHH. 

Being a representative of Jesus means taking on ourselves his attributes, loving others being the most important of those attributes, and being to look at people the same (well, almost the same) way that Christ sees them, you develop such a deep love for them, and a desire to serve and help them as much as possible, so clearly one can understand why I dont want to leave my area just yet, but I just have to trust that the Lord will put me where I need to be (which hopefully next time isnt a desert). 

Anyways, conference this weekend was BOMB! That talk that Joaquin E. Costa gave was a DREAM for all us missionaries #defshowingtoallmyinvestigators. 

I left my camera cable, so all i have now is a selfie of me and this kid. Enjoy!
