Transfers, 3rd Area, and 2nd Baptism!!!

Story Time!!!!!!

"Well Hermana Anguita thank you ..ring ring ring...  who is calling us Hermana Edwards?  
"The offices"
"Hmmm thats weird what do they want?"
"Hermana its for you?"
"Hmm ok thank you!  Hola!!
"Hola Hermana Kent!  Its Elder Moore from the offices.  I am calling to tell you that you and Hermana Edwards have changes tomorrow and you will be leaving your area!!!"
End of story

Needless to say I cried A LOT Tuesday as we were finishing up lunch.  But anyway!!  I am now in the area of Hurlingham.  I am back in the zone of Caserso really close to my first area!!   This week was crazy.  Tuesday after lunch I spent packing and then we had our English class.  

My new companion is Hermana Hale and she is super great and happy all of the time!!!  She is from Tennessee!!  And she will be going home at the end of this transfer!!  Jajajaja shocking no??!!  Hahaha well I don't know all of our investigators yet but the few that I know are super great!!  

We baptized a little boy Saturday night named Laurtaro.  He is 8 years old.  He is so great he was so prepared!!  His grandma is a memeber of our ward but his parents are not members so we got to teach and baptize him!!  He is so great and smart.  

I am excited for this new area!!   I am really sad not to be in Ituzaingo 4 but I know it is for a reason.  I know that this church is true and that our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ live and love us indivdually way more than we can imagine.   Love and miss you all lot and lots and lots!!!!

Staying Together


Well this week was much, much better than last week!!  We saw miracles this week!!  Last night we had our first lesson with Walter!!!  We found him about a month ago and have tried and tried and tried to get an appointment with him and finally last night it happened!!  He is so prepared!!   He is so definitely going to get baptized this next transfer!!   Well I am praying he will!!!  He is so great!!  He is a miracle!!!  He has a family but he is the only one interested right this minute.  He has two daughters and a son!!  The spirit was so strong last night as we taught him about faith and repentance!!  Every question we asked him he answered exactly as we believe.  I am so excited to watch this miracle unfold!!  Other than that this week has been just working and trying to find people to teach. 

Hermana Edwards’ lice are gone!!!  Hooorrrraaaayyyyy!!!  We were really praying for her!!  And I luckily never got it!!!  I am so grateful!!!  This week is transfers!!  We got a call this morning from our zone leaders!!  Hermana Edwards and I are going to be working together again this transfer.  I am so excited!!  She will now be my companion that I have had the longest!!  OH you should have seen us this morning FREAKING out as we were waiting for them to start to tell us and then after we got the news!!!!  We are so excited!!!!!

She is so great!!  I know that this church is true and that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live and love us very much way more than we can imagine!!!  Love and miss you all lots and lots and lots and lots!!!!!

All Things BUGS!!!

This week was rough to sum it up.  Being separated from Hermana Edwards was super hard.  Even though I still had a companion it was hard not to be with my companion.  It was a neat experience training though.  I LOVE the twelve week program that we go through when we first enter the mission field.  There are so many great things to learn of how to teach with the spirit and learning to become the missionary that the Lord wants us to become.  Hermana Wilcox and Hermana Mattinson are going to be great missionaries and I am so grateful for the experience I had of helping them during their training. 

Ok so the long part of the week…  Well, Saturday we took care of lots of bugs.  I mean lots of bugs.  I mean bugs in every place you can imagine.  Like bugs in hair as well.  Well ok I need to back up.   So we have had cockroaches in our apartment sometimes as we have come home at night and we kill them and then it is fine.  A couple of weeks ago I went to bed with a little bit of a headache and woke up at about 2 in the morning and at like 2:30 I finally decided to get up and take medicine because I couldn’t go back to sleep.  As I turn on the light to the kitchen I see like a million of the little creepy crawlies on our counters and on our newly cleaned dishes that I had cleaned the night before as I went to bed.  It was an experience and needless to say we called the office early the next morning for them to send someone to come and spray our house.  Well the Hermano came Saturday morning and our apartment has been perfect and clean and cockroach free.  Ok well we having been having a lot of dead ones but it has been so great.  Hermana Edwards and I are so grateful. 

Well also remember how I said in hair as well?  We found out on Saturday that Hermana Edwards has lice.  So we immediately went and bought things for her to use for her head to help her out.  So needless to say, Saturday "we took care of all of the bugs.  ALL of the bugs" as Hermana Edwards and I have been saying. 

The week ended yesterday with a huge fight on the bus as we were going to lunch yesterday with two primary girls in our ward.  They started to pull each other’s hair and so we had to separate them and then one of them started to say bad words.  It was a very full bus too and of course we got on the bus together and we have our tags on so everybody saw what church we were from.  I am just sick to think that that whole bus now has that image of our church.  It was a different week but that’s ok it will be a better this week. 

I know that this church is true that we have a loving Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ who love us each individually more than we can imagine.  Love and miss everyone a lot!!!

I LOVE General Conference!!!

This week was super great!!  We found another family that we are going to start teaching this week!!  It was crazy!!  We just started to talk to this little girl and her mom came out and so we started to talk to her mom, and then the mom’s sisters showed up because they all live together.  It was super great!!  It was meant to be!!  The sister’s boyfriend is a member of the church and she was over at his house the other day while the elders were visiting this member family that is in their ward.  So they were talking and they thought that she was super great!!  They knew she lived in our area but didn’t know where.  Well we found her!!!  It’s a miracle!!  It’s meant to be!!  We are super excited to teach this family, they are going to be so great!!! 

Other than that was just conference!!  I LOVE general conference!!  I can’t believe that another on has gone by!!  I didn’t understand everything that was said but I felt the spirit and it was super great!!  The first session we were able to watch with our bishop in his house with his family!!  It was super fun!!  The other three sessions we watched in a church house in our stake!!  It was a different experience watching everyone come with their lunch and hang out at the church house in between sessions!!  I am super grateful for the many blessings we enjoy in the United States!!  The last session an investigator of ours named Victoria was able to come!!  She is super great and we are praying that she will be baptized the end of this month!! 
I am learning a lot from Hermana Edwards!  How to teach better, Spanish, lots of things!!  She is called a Sister Training leader.  She is equal to a zone leader but for the sisters.  So this week we are going to have divisions twice with two companionships which means that she is going to leave me two times this week to go to another area where there are sisters in our zone.  The two sisters that will be with me are both very new.  So I will be training them for 1 day!!  I am super excited to help train them both for 1 day!!  I am a little nervous for the language I will probably have to do all of the talking.  I don’t know how much Spanish they know.  But I am excited to experience training someone even if it is only for two days

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend!!  What better way than to have it than over General Conference listening to our Prophet and Apostles!!  I am so grateful for them in my life!!  They are such great examples to us!! I know that Pres Thomas S. Monson is our living prophet of today!!  I know that he is called by our Heavenly Father as well as our apostles.  I know that this church is true!!  I know that our Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ love us and always are with us!!  I know that the Book of Mormon is true!!  I LOVE and miss you lots and lots and lots and lots!!!
Con mucho amor,

Hermana Kent
