Light of the Gospel

All I can say is you guys are the best for not being trunky  :D  I’m so focused still, and I owe a lot of that to you all :D
 I loved every second of conference it was so interesting, all of the theme they had going of the light of the gospel, it was like, just hold on, have faith, get close to Christ, everything’ll be ok :D 
Between conferences my comp and I picked chestnuts behind the stake center :D it was fun :D they look like Dr. Seuss balls :D

 Romina decided I needed to have Latina hair and she wanted my gringa hair ha-ha
 We watched almost every session in English.... my companion is amazing ha-ha.  She understood everyone except the Australian, that was a new accent for her.
We went to papa johns for my last pday :D I bought a cinnamon bread thingy :D so good.
 I’ve been lying to the members cause they want me to come say bye and I’m like oh I’m not leaving yet,( I’ll say bye during church):D ha-ha so I’ve got a full schedule planned this week I’m so excited :D

Barley Escaping Rainy Season

Well, all of the baptismal possibilities fell through but we found a new lady who’s getting baptized on the 15th :P she’s cool though, Brandina. We are also teaching a mom and her twelve year old twins. Maritza, Eduardo and Benja. They live in an old church ;D it’s cool. They are evangelical.... I don’t know what it’s called in English... I think dad calls them holy rollers?? Maritza doesn’t think her baptism was valid so she’s super cool :D Then we have Marcelo.... he..... I’ll explain him in a couple weeks mejor :D Angelika but she went off to Santiago for 2 weeks sooo..... bueno.... ha-ha, but we’ve found several really cool new investigators :D so there’ll be probs 7 baptisms in the weeks after I leave, but the fact I’m barely escaping rain season here makes up for it :D
We had a zone attack in Vilcun yesterday these pictures are all from that (I never did get these pictures) :D the tiny Latina is Hna Silva she’s my buddy :D  The elders in Vilcun love cooking so they made a couple hundred cookies and put cute wrappings on them and we went out and contacted with cookies :D the peoples were happy :D  I hope things go better for them there now ha-ha pobrecitos.
Today we had a dodgeball tournament and it was great, no one could get me out but I couldn’t get many out either so I was almost always the last one in dodging forever, no mas ha-ha now my legs are burning from ups and down so many squat type movements  ha-ha :D I’m in better shape than when I left, just not much up down movement in the mission.

Below we have Fundo El Carmen, we did a whitewash of sectors and companions all mixed up so ended up with Hna Clark in Fundo El Carmen for the day. We found 7 new investigators and a million futuros. It was awesome. Fundo was Hna Ricagno’s first sector so I have officially worked in every sector Hna Ricagno was in. :D

This pic is me on the ground when we got back to the house last week after writing u guys... my comp threw the blanket on me and I stayed for a good hour. Drop dead tired. Then I moved to my bed. But today I have to start packing my suitcase because I’m not going to have time next week, or the mental power. Kind of scared not going to lie. I am so excited to see everyone. :D

 The Sunday after conference is fast Sunday for us, I still have one left ;) Saturday session starts at 1, but we watched the women’s broadcast Saturday morning at 11:30.
