Monday Jun 20 2016
This past week was my last week with my mamíta and she was super sick so we didn't do as much as we wanted to with our investigators, and then she left to Potosí to be a leader for all the sisters. I miss her sooooo much and it was hard to let her go haha!
But she will be such a great leader. I'm happy for her :)

I got my new comp! Hermana Gonzalez, she is also from Santiago, Chile and she speaks really good English and that's not normal cause I'm new and I'm supposed to learn the language before I get comps that speak English but President thinks different this time I guess! Haha.
Shes awesome and super funny too, I'm excited for another step in the mission with many more things to learn!

So this past week, Hermana Bisama and I were visiting our investigator Ana Belmonte. She has a 21 year old son who has a 3 year old daughter. We just taught Ana on Tuesday about the Plan of Salvation and she knew a lot about it cause she has visited church many times before and she just thought it was so beautiful and then because Hermana Bisama was most likely going to leave before the next week, she invited us to make dinner with her on Friday, we made Plato Piseño (my favorite meal, its from La Paz) and her son Sergio and his daughter Maite came and ate with us and he was like, "so my mom is gunna be mormona?" haha he told us that he actually is really interested. He said, "my mom was telling me about a lot of what you believe, and what really caught my attention is that, you believe that we can be with our loved ones after this life." So were going to start teaching him too! They have a great family. I really love the Plan of Salvation so much. It really brings so much light and peace and hope to our lives.

So, this past week was Fathers Day. I love that we celebrate on a specific day for our mothers and fathers. Because they really have the biggest impact in our lives, but... Did you know, here in Bolivia, they have a day to celebrate for the kids?... That would be cool too in the US! Haha.

Something I'm so thankful for about my dad, every Sunday growing up, we(my sisters and I) used to walk to church with him and he used to tell us stories and stories and stories about his childhood and mainly about his mission. Because of him sharing with me the most important things to him, real life matters, I had a desire to serve the Lord at a younger age, and I thankfully made the choice to be a missionary and it has done so many things for me and I know more about who I am and Gods love for all of us. Having said that, I know I'm not perfect whatsoever but that I have a potential, just like all of you too! Ahhh you're all so great! :)

You will love a lot of people but first, you have to serve them!

I wish I had a lot more to write about from this week but we didn't get too much done cause my comp was sick :( I miss you all and love you!
