Number one we had a baptism!! It was very sweet! A mother (Carilina) and her son (Benjamin) were baptized. They are so strong and faithful! And I´m so proud of the choices they are making!
Number two I was JUMPED! Yes, this is real life! We’re on the bus going toward the city, I was just asking about the robbery in Chile. Our area didn´t seem to have any. Hna Ibarra then informed me that we really do have robberies especially in the Elders area (which is pretty sketch). Anyway I was just pondering the gravity of that on the bus when I felt a pressure on my chest as if someone was using me to catch themselves before they fell. I looked over and there was a man with my (fake gold) Young women’s medallion in his hands! He ran with the necklace still around my neck! My name tag went flying and the bus was silent...... ¨que????¨ Did that really just happen?? Yup : ) My first robbery! I think I’m really a Chilean now! After I caught my breath, all I felt was sadness for that man and the choices he had made. I hope he can find his way and find peace. It reminded me that we become what our actions make us. Small or large these things define us! It is how others view us and how we begin to view ourselves! These actions hold weight, they are important, so please please think about what your actions will bring, what your words with do! You can use these things to do great and wonderful things for the Lord If you choose to!
Number three I got to wear JEANS!!!! It was soooo weird! It was so liberating, haha I felt like I could conquer the world! We helped a member paint his bars on the window : ) hahaha oh Chile is just a little Ghetto : ) but i wouldn’t have it any other way! By the way missionaries LOVE to give service especially if it mean they can wear jeans! So the next time they ask you how they can help (which should be every time they talk to you) say yes! They really would love to help! That’s why we’re here!!
Remember you can be a great force for good, you need only choose to do what is good!
Be strong and of a good courage!
