Miracles of Miracles

Hola Todos!

This week has been such a blessing! I feel so blessed to be a misisonary and to be a small part of this great work! I have given so many prayers of gratitude this week.

First of all I have a new companion! Her name is Hermana Gòmez from Peru and is so sweet. Actually we are in a trio right now. Until Hermana Ovalle leaves today. I am actually in tears to have her leave. She has become a dear dear friend and helped me so much. It is probably a good thing that we only have 4 weeks together because we´re basically sisters. She flies to the United States today. 

This week we had a beautiful miracle of Matias. The other day we found a few ward members from Valpo out in the street and I freaked out. We were talking and they were visiting their daughter here. Their daughter has a 9 year old son who hasnt been baptized. That is Matias. He is a literal angel and reminds me SO much of my brother Seth when he was that age. It is actually creepy how much he is like Seth. And he is just great! We put a baptismal date for the 11 of September and he came to church! The ward was great with him and it has just been miraculous.

Also, remember Jacqueline from last week? This week we invited her to be baptised and she said that that was a great responsibility and that if she makes the decision it will be forever. She is praying about it. She is literal gold and I feel so priviledged to be her missionary. She tells us we seem like perfect people and she can never be like us. Um. . .I AM NOT PERFECT! It becomes more and more evident daily.

Also Family Araya Oryan has been great. Javiera, the 13 year old didnt want anything to do with us the last time. But the 2nd time watched the Jospeh Smith movie with us and she was like ¨Hey! Just like you guys said!¨And we looked at her like, ¨When were you listening?¨So she really does have interest and really wants to pray to know that this is true. I love their family so much!

The mission is just basically the best. And I fell so priviledged to be a missionary. Yes, it is hard. And I am tired. But it is wonderful! I know that Heavenly Father puts EVERY person in our path that needs to be there. That has been very evident this week. 

I love you all dearly! Thank you for your prayers! Yáll are in mine.
