Sister Travelling Leaders

Talk about a crazy week. We got back to our sector in the good ol Ochagavia and 3 days later we got called as sister travelling leaders. What does that mean? We moved to a nice apartment in a condominium with a pool (that we can't swim in) next to a mall (we can't go in) and don't have a sector assigned to us. What do we do? We go and stay with different sisters every couple of days and teach them, train them, and help them reach their potential.
Why do I have this calling? I ain't got a clue. Sometimes I feel like the Lord puts way too much confidence in me. But I know He is wanting me to learn something very specific for these last few weeks of my mission. I am staying as focused as possible. It is a little challenging because I don't have investigators, less actives, ward or anything.
We went to the coast for the first time in my mission. It was pretty cool to see the water and the beach and smell the salty air. But talk about some HILLS it was like hiking. INSANE. Pretty fun though. Me and Hermana T still goin' strong as amigas and compaƱeras. She is a really good girl. I hope that you all can meet her.
Time is going by faster than I thought and it is weird to see my flight information. Did you get it?
Give Hollan a big ol hug from me!
Love you lots!

Blessing Preparation

It is amazing how the Lord prepares us for blessings. I say prepares us for blessings because imagine if things weren't hard, it would not be nearly as great as we would like to receive blessings. If we keep that perspective, we start to realize that there are no trials, just moments of blessing preparation, because like Jeffery R. Holland says, THE BLESSINGS WILL ALWAYS COME:
I know you and the family are also in a moment of blessing preparation but the blessings will be grand and glorious, just like Dieter F Uchtdorf says in his talk about how to find truth and light, when you get it, IT WILL BE GLORIOUS.
I feel honored and blessed to serve the Lord. I feel honored and blessed that He wants me to stay. I feel attacked and tried every day and I am grateful for it. Because I am making a difference. I am a threat to the devil, and I will always be. Thank you for being my parents. Love you lots.

Time is flying

Time is flying for sure. Saw Hermana Todesco in the temple right before she leaves. WEIRD. We saw each other at the beginning and the end.
Went through some really emotionally challenging things this week but you know that is part of the mission. Just glad that I have the best comp ever. There is a lot that has happened and I would rather tell you on Mother's Day so that we don't have to have miscommunications.
I am very grateful to be out here and thanks for sending pictures. MADE MY LIFE: I FORGOT WHAT YALL LOOKED LIKE.
Love you lots!
