Umbrellas, Youth, and Bread

Dearest Peoples
What a great week. It has been a roller coaster. But I have enjoyed it lots. 

This week I had a little bit of a hard time at one point. I was just tired and without a lot of desire to work. But as we are obedient the Lord blesses us. True story.

This week we did a wonderful activity for the youth. My companion and I had been thinking of doing an activity for quite some time and then I remembered some great activities that we used to do with SP2 and SP6 when we asked questions and the bishopbric or a pannel answered them. We invited all the youth and had them all write quesitons and just had a discussion. It was amazing and we had a great turnout thanks to our mamita who made pizza and offered her home. (she is in the yw presidency). The youth are so important for a ward.
We also found some great nuevos this week. One of which is a family! We are so blessed! Eliseo is still reading SO much and loving the Book of Mormon. But he feels like he needs to know everything before he can be baptized and thinks it will take him about  2 more years. . . uh oh. Prayers. Julio came to church on Sunday thanks to a member that helped us pick him up in the morning! We are excited! Members are so important in this work!
One thing I have learned is that there truly are no coincedences. Literally every single day there are little miracles that leave me floored. I feel like the most spoiled person ever. Or as Chileans say  a ¨regalona de Padre Celestial.` 

It was super rainy yesterday. Like TONS. But we make the best of it. I actually like the rain. The mission is great! 

Congrats to all who are getting mission calls! My companion and I say every day that the mission is the best decision that a human being can make.
