Today we had transfers!!!! I was 100% sure that Hna Garcia and I wouldn´t have transfers, becuase we´ve only been togeather for 3 weeks..... My new compaion is Hna Crump from Utah. I´m super excited to be working with her! But now I will be the one who is alway in our sector with other Hernamas, and she will be traveling! I´m excited to stay in my secter for the splits! There are so many things I want to do! Hna. Crump has lots of energy and is super obedient, and just a little crazy : ) but good crazy! She has 3 months less in the mission than I do and has been working as a leader in a diffrent part of Santiago.
This week was my birthday, and it was just wonderful!!! My amazing comp (Hna Garcia, at the time) made me breakfast and then we had our weekly District class (when we meet with all of the missionaries in our part of Santiago). They sang happy birthday, and we ate cookies. Then we were going to go the the house of Nicole (a member here) to have a lession with Gerson (one of the people we are teaching), and they suprised me with a cake : ) Really the people are so good to me here!
I realized this week my letters have been a little lame lattly so I´ll try to step it up with this week!
One of our investigatores is named Gerson (in the picture with the cake) He is about 25 and is making big changes in his life! He seems much more content and happy now! But the proplem is that he works.... a lot. He is a chef, and has been asking for Sundays off be able to go to church for the whole time, and........ he finallly has Sundays FREE!!! I´m so excited to see how he progresses!
In my studies I have been reading the Book of Mormon, and I am struck by how much we can aply it to our own lives! In fact, it was written by the prophets thousands of years ago for our day! I know that it is a true book and was written for us!
I love you all and hope that your week will be spirit filled!
