Haircut, Broken Foot and a Temple Dedication

HI FAM! So this week, a few big things happened. 
1. I cut my hair, kinda a lot, ha-ha. I was finally just over thy dying ends I had and said, "you know what, short hair can be cute hair too!" So I cut everything off that wasn’t healthy. Up by my face it’s pretty short! I like it!! It gave it a lot of volume and shape, because I also got layers and everything. 
2. On Thursday afternoon, I was walking out of the house to go and conquer the world with the gospel! And I was so excited, that I accidentally stepped on a tile out of our patio that wasn’t level with the ground. Unfortunately, this meant that my foot just bent really hard. I immediately had a lot of pain, so I sat down right there on the ground outside. After a bit I got up and hopped inside. I was really, really worried that I had sprained my ankle, because in the mission, having that kind of a problem is a big deal. So I called some nearby elders, and within twenty minutes from the accident, I got a blessing for it. I decided to just hang out. Hna Woodward saw a pic of it and told me that we would just wait because it wasn’t that bad, it just looked like I bruised my foot pretty bad. On Friday I didn’t leave the house, but then on Saturday I started getting nervous about it, so I organized with Hna Woodward to go to the hospital. She sent me to the best Hospital in South America, Clinica Las Condes. They treated me great, the got me in so fast that Hna Woodward didn’t even make it to my appointment. SO here’s the bad news, I fractured a bone on the side of my foot, and it looks like I’ll be down for about a month. It’s been a hard few days I have to say! Just because president told me right away that this was going to affect my cambios! I figured out pretty fast that they were going to send me to the office. 
3. I got transferred to the office!! Hna Vilches’ training ended, so that was pretty sad, but she’s sooo capable, shell be fantastic! I’m gonna be in the office and honestly I’m not really sure what’s going on much. Presidente hasn’t really said a word to me yet, but I’m assuming that soon he’ll interview me and talk to me about it. I think that during the day, my companion, who will be Hna Ribodino, from Argentina, will go work with some other hnas nearby, and I will be hanging out in the office trying to keep myself busy with the senior couples! Nobody worry about me, because between them and Hna Woodward, I am very well taken care of!! I’ve been here in the office all day just kicking it and they’ve been asking me every few minutes what they can do! 

On Thursday I have another appointment with the doctor, and Hna Woodward is going to go with me so I’ll be able to understand what’s going on, but for now I have my foot in a boot :) 

I know, you’re all pretty proud of me right? Probably the only person you know that can break her foot just walking, ha-ha!  My foot’s pretty dang purple, honestly it’s kind of awesome, someday I’ll show you all pics but not right now because it looks A LOT worse than it is!!

I guess that’s all for today, the temple dedication (Concepcion) was fantastic, just exactly what I needed to keep up my animo! I was kind of really stressed out, but today I’m a lot calmer. I know that this time in my mission isn’t gonna be easy, but I’m sure it’ll be okay, and while I’m here, I’m gonna enjoy!!!! 

I love you all! 
Hna Stanley,
PS - don’t worry about me, just pray for me :)
