Opening Atalaya B is Great!!!

Wow this week has been a super great week!!!!  It all starts on Tuesday when the Elders in our ward contacted a family that lives in our area!!!  They are a really great and special family!!!  They moved here to Argentina about a month ago from Hawaii!!!  The mom is from here and they decided to move back for school!!!  The kid’s don’t speak a ton of Spanish so we are teaching them in English!!!  It has definitely been an experience teaching in my native tongue. 

I LOVE this gospel!!!  It is incredible to me how many languages we as missionaries learn to be sure that our Heavenly Father’s children learn the gospel in their native language!!!  It’s incredible!!!!!!!  We were also able to do service for this family Friday morning.  There was lots of dust and the mom was feeling a little sick and so we went and dusted everything in the house!!  It was such a experience being able to help this family out so much this week!!! 

Well we still are trying to find the people here who have been prepared for us to find.  It is an incredible adventure opening up Atalaya B!!!  I really like the ward it’s really great!!!  They haven’t had sisters for about 6 months and a lot of members supposedly have been praying for sisters.  There is a lot of excitement for us!!!  I have to be patient with myself because I don’t know everyone yet but it will all be ok.

Read Moroni 8:1-3.  It’s a scripture that I found in the MTC that helps me A LOT through the week.  But as you read it when it says Mormon put Cameron when it says Moroni put Karina and when it says my beloved son put my beloved daughter.  You WILL cry!!!!!!!!!!!! 

I know that with our Heavenly Father at our side we can do anything!!!  I know the He and our Savior Jesus Christ live and love us way more than we can imagine.  I know that they know us each so personally!!!  I know that the Book of Mormon is true!!!  I know that this church is true and I LOVE it!!!  I LOVE being a missionary!!!  I LOVE and miss you all lots and lots and lots and lots!!!!

Flash Transfer - Fifth Area


Friday - "Well Hermaninta are you ready to go and baptize someone today? Lets go!!!!!"  ring, ring, ring, ring "Hermana it’s the assistant. "  "Hola!" "Hello Hermana Kent it’s the assistants, we are calling to tell you and Hermana Wiborny that you two will be having a flash today and be going to Atalaya to open up Atalaya B.  Start packing and we will be there shortly to pick you two up to take you both to your new area."  Well that’s right!!!  Friday afternoon Hermana Wiborny and I left Haedo and are now in Atalaya opening up an area where there haven’t been Hermanas for about 6 months!!!  Just elders in this ward.  I am way excited about this task that Heavenly Father has given to us and the confidence He has put in us to open this area.  Oh it has been a crazy week trying to learn the area and get to know people and find a house for us two!!!  We are living with other sisters who live like 10 or 15 min from our area until we can find something.  We have appointments tomorrow to walk through two apartments with the missionary couple who are in charge of the apartments.  This area is poor.  I don’t know how poor.  It is definitely NOT like Haedo.  EVERYONE in Haedo had a ton of money.  I am really excited for this area. 

I can NOT believe that this is already my fifth area and that this month will complete 14 months in the mission and that in two days I will have officially been in Argentina for 1 year!!!  The time is so fast and I am so grateful for all of the experiences I have had so far in my mission.  The week started out super great!!!  Tuesday we had the opportunity to have special trainings and interviews with President Robertson!!!  I love going to special trainings and interviews!!  I always feel the spirit so strong and I am always so excited to apply the different things that we are taught!!! 

I feel like the mission has really helped me.  I mean I am NOT Argentine and can talk for two hours straight.  I am still very observant and don’t have to talk every second but I feel like a talk more than before.   I LOVE being a missionary!!! I know that this church is true!!!  I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live.  I know that they know us each individually and love us so much!!! I know they know what is best for us and will answer our prayers!!  I LOVE and miss all of you lots and lots and lots and lots!!!
