So the dead body. I was walking down the street and there it was... no just kidding, there was this investigator that invited us into his house and literally right there in the living room was a coffin with a dead guy. I guess they were doing a viewing.... I was rather surprised.
Well we had cambios again and Little Pino left! I have been called as a sister training leader which means I do splits and am in charge of making sure that other missionaries are doing what they are supposed to be doing. I am with my best friend in the mission Hermana T. She is legit. We have been friends the whole mission and finally we are comps. 
Sent president a letter today about recieving permission to extend my mission until June. Although I will miss a lot of good things in May, I really feel like it is what I have to do. We will see if he approves it, but I do feel at peace with the decision.
A great attribute that I will learn this change is the importance of being a leader and an organized leader at that. We are fighting to keep a barrio together, baptize, reactivate, retain, and train 10 companionships of sisters.
Pray for us.
Love you lots!

Things are going well here. Taught a convict yesterday and saw my first dead man. It was an interesting day to say the least. We are in the last week of this change in the mission. I am ready for a lot of miracles and a lot of work.
I was chosen to speak and participate in a conference with Elder Walter Gonzalez. I was kind of scared. He is the General Authority of South America. It was an awesome chance to feel the spirit. 
Learned an important lesson this week about the importance of not comparing ourselves with anyone else. If we are always comparing ourselves with other people there is no way that we will improve. If I think I am doing so much "better" than someone else or so much "worse" I am not improving on my level. I have to compare the things I do with how I was before. We are all on a different part of the path to conversion and if I am always looking to my left and right I will never see how much I am missing to get to the finish line. I have always tried to teach that to my new missionaries so that they don't waste time in their mission comparing themselves to someone else, but rather that they look inside and see their own personal growth because that is the miracle that the Lord is working in them.
Love you so much!

Want to bear my testimony about obedience and revelation. When we are obedient God shows us a higher way to live our lives and then we are more prepared for the new revelation that He gives to His designated servants. It is amazing to me how aware God is of each and everyone of us in each and every situation that we are facing. I have never been so close to God and I really like where I am spiritually. In fact I love it. I have been learning so much and I hope that the learning will continue.
