What a week.
1. Sabina accepted a fecha (date) for 15 de Octubre!!!!! I just might baptize my very first Chilean!!!
2. I loved conference. We had our gringo room where we enjoyed speaking english without being judged. It was a blast! I found it really interesting how much was said about the second coming, how every knee shall bow and confess that Christ is Christ (and that we need to do this today), and of course la obra misional (missionary work!!!) A lot of the scriptures that were mentioned I knew in memory...which really freaked me out la verdad. Those morning estudios are paying off!! Three of the scriptures mentioned were scriptures I've been recently studying this cambio..and my homework for you is to look them up: 1) Alma 30:44, 2) D&C 6:22 3, and 3) 1 Corinthians 2:9. I loved all the talks and I'm not picking favorites but one that really caught my attention was the one that talked about leaders...and who the Lord calls he qualifies. Why you may ask? Because on Sunday morning my way-too-excited Brasilian zone leader (note that he is from Brasil and is way too happy) ran up to me and said:
"HERMANA!!! President and the Lord listened to my request and you're going to TRAIN!!!!! I hope your hija is from Brasil!!!"
And there you have it. The greenie is training a greenie. I haven't met her yet and I have no clue where she is from, but mis hermanos....I am a mother in the mission.
Today we had a meeting with the assistants on how to train and I'm feeling a bit better, but I didn't sleep last night. I feel like I have a HUGE responsibility, but I'm excited for the task.
I sure love all of you!
Here are some photos of my dear Hermana Amestica and our zone and district! Penaflor is crazy, but being here has been the happiest I've been my whole mission.
