Hola todos!
FELIZ AÑO NUEVO! Hope you all enjoyed your new years festivities. We did! We had dinner with a family in the ward and ate a ton and it was a blast! We had non alcoholic drinks and typically Chilean new years food. We have eaten so much left over pollo relleno that we want to cry. But everyone is so kind to share with us and that makes us so happy.
MY COMPANION IS STILL HERMANA STAUFFER! We had a big surprise this week when they called to say that she is staying. I am super happy because she is just the best. But that means 7 and a half months in one area for her. WOW.
This week I got sick and it was ugly. But we are all good now. :) It was a tough week, not gonna lie. After the family got baptized we were left with nothing. So we have been looking lots. On New Years Eve were were especially bummed because no one would listen to us and our feet hurt and it was just one of those tough missionary moments. When out of no where a 16 year old kid we had contacted the other day comes over and shakes our hands like we are the bestest friends ever. We were kinda confused because we couldnt even remember his name or where we had contacted him. He asks us what we are doing and we explain that we are trying to share about Jesus Christ. So he sits on the ground and says, {tell me about Jesus}. So we start talking about the Restoration and about baptizm and he was SO into it and had so many questions. We talked for about an hour and a half. It was a tender mercy. We are going to stop by this week for him.
Our stake presidency gave the class the third hour of church this week and the stake president said something that I loved and that also like cut me hard core. He said there is no room for the irresponsible, the lazy, the one who justifies, nor the one who is afraid in the celestial kingdom]. Take that in for a second. If we truly want to get to the reino celestial we have gotta live the celestial law. And not just in 10 years from now but NOW. Our little habits make a bigger difference than any one big event. May we all make goals this 2017 to be a little better, serve a little more, and live the celestial law.
I love you all! Happy new year!
