ME VOY A QUEDAR AQUI EN MAIPU. (I’m going to stay in Maipu)
LOL. I always knew it, there was never even really a question! But in order to go in order, I’ll start at the beginning of the week.
This week was hard for me. I had a lot of responsibility in preparation for cambios (transfers), and it weighed on me. but I’m still alive! Well, we were going to have Marta´s baptism this Sunday, but unfortunately, her son has gotten really sick, and it looks like he might pass away. She left to be with him, and we will be having her baptism next week (hopefully). I’m considering taking her to the bishop’s house and asking him to babysit her for a couple of days until her baptism, HA-HA. Wow you guys, that’s all I can remember of this week. And so cambios.
On Saturday night, we get a call saying if we will stay or go, so we can pack, but not where we go or who we will receive. We heard on Saturday that Hna Dinamarca se va (is going), and I was going to be staying. On Sunday night, we found out that Hna Dinamarca will be going to Cerrillos, the zone right next to me!! She will be with a sister that finished her training at the same time as me, and she will be serving as a Sister Training Leader. I would be receiving Hna Schenk. I’ve been with her for about 20 minutes, and she seems great!! I actually met her in the Christmas activity of the mission. She’s really funny and energetic! She’s from SoCal, has 3 brothers, is 20 years old, and that’s all I know! But next week I will have a lot more for you guys! In the meantime, a tribute to Hna Dinmarca.
I LOVE HNA DINAMARCA. She has been my best friend in the whole wide world for the past 12 weeks. I trusted her with everything, we enjoyed everything, even the moments that were not so good. She is the best example of the type of missionary that I want to be. When I first was put with her, I was nervous because she doesn’t speak English. One of the many things that I learned from her is that when God gives us something that we think never in a million years we will be able to do, it’s because he wants to prove to us that HE can do all things and that WE through HIM, can do all things also. I’m really nervous for this next transfer. There is a lot of pressure on my shoulders, but I know that if I do my part, I’ll be able to handle it. God will strengthen me, and he will do the same for you ;) That’s all for the week you guys :)
