What a crazy week! A ton has happened! First of all, I have been transferred! I only had 1 transfer in my last area but it was still hard to leave. How is it that people can steal your heart with only 6 weeks together! Including companions. But I know that change can be a good thing. Actually this change is EXACTLY what I needed to give me the boost that I needed.
I am now in VALPARIASO again! I am so excited! I have been called as a sister training leader and am in the same apartment that I did exchanges in my first 6 months of the mission. It is crazy. I finally saw the ocean again after like 6 months and I realized I missed it! This ward is great and HUGE. It is like a USA ward but Chilean. :)
My companion is Hermana Stauffer. She is from Conneticut and my first gringa (nonlatina) since my trainer. She went to BYU before the mish and now we are together! She has 10 months in the mission and we get along really well. Shes super fun and a great missionary. Her parents are actually mission presidents in Peru right now.
We had Consejo de Lideres this week that is like a meeting for all the zone leaders, hermana leaders, and the office. My whole MTC group was there. We took pics and remanissed a bit.
We had another capilla abierta! So great! And Christmas Choir practice. I just feel like I have been in a bus all week to have to travel to Viña but its been good.
I have learned a lot about obedience this week. Obedience gives us power over Satan. Obedience gives us hope and motivation. Obedience isnt just for missionaries with mission rules but for all of Gods children. Obedience to the commandments, leaders called by God, and the promptings of the Spirit.
I love you all dearly!Hermana Kelson
