Well happy new years!!!! 2015 has been a good year and now we have a new year in front of us full of new hope and new goals that we can accomplish! still i havent done my goals...oops... but i will be doing some this next week!! haha i keep you updated on my goals!! but hey if anyone has any ideas about some good goals im all ears!! haha or i guess it would be eyes since im able to read them haha! 

Well i hope that you all had a great week! ours was a really hot and it was definetly a memorable one!! for new years we were able to go to a members house and eat with them! they did another asado for us!! that was awesome!! we ate like kings and queens (the elders where with us as well) and then we got to watch some really pretty fireworks!!! They did a really good job on the fireworks and it was a very fun way to bring in the new year!! 

we were able to find a few more people that we can teach which is always a wonderful thing as we are running low on people to teach and it was a blessing to find them after we had a lot of rejection this week!! so it helped us know that after the rejections and all the nos there is someone that will say yes to us!! haha 

today i studied the talk approaching the throne of God with confidence and was reminded that we determine our happiness!! we determine our situations!! and i want to invite you all to read the talk again!! you can find the talk in this link:

December 14th

Wow! Its really crazy to think that Christmas is coming up really quick! Im super excited for that time and for this time that we have to think about the savior!!! Its going to be a very special time!!! :) 

This week we found a few really awesome people this week!! It was a testimony to me that Heavenly Father really does hear and answer our prayers!! We were out and about like always and we had just had  rough week where no one really wanted to hear from us and were being kind of rude and mean but then we went to a house and we found some really nice young women who were really interested in our message and then at the end we gave them a book of mormon and they all wanted one and started fighting for the book!!! It was pretty wonderful to have found people that were really interested and loved to have us there to teach them!! :) 

Also this same week we had a crazy storm!!!! We were really far from home and then we see these really dark clouds coming in and then they become black clouds and then the wind picks up and we start to walk back closer to town because the power in the whole town cut out! and we started walking a little faster and then all around us lighting starts coming down hard!!! and close!!! so we start running to a members home and as soon as we get in the rain just pours down!!! we stayed there for about an hour then we gave up and called a taxi to come and get us and everything is just flooded and we basically have to swim to the taxi!! haha but we made it safe and sound and all was good!!! haha but it was definitely was an experience that we wont forget!! haha

well i hope that all is well and that your preparations for Christmas are all going smoothly!!! :) i love you all!!!

i dont have any pictures because i forgot my camera!! oops!!! 

December 7th

I hope everyone is well and healthy! :)

Well this week was pretty slow! Not much new happened! It was kind of a sad week were nobody really wanted to hear from us, but we are still trying and we are pushing forward! We are looking for those that are going to progress!! There are many but we just have to find them! :)

I have been thinking alot this week about this Christmas season and how its definitely a little different from every other Christmas that i spent but that every year is different! Right now i think i have learned more about the atonement and what Christ did for each one of us and how we need to pay more attention to what he did especially during this time of year! I love this time of year and i love that its a time for everyone to come closer to their savior!!! the Church once again put out a new video for the Christmas Season here is the link:
Its a wonderful message about Christ and how we have been given this gift and how wondrful this gift really is! 

I hope you all are well and i will talk to you next week!!!

These are a few of random pictures! haha

December 1st

So this week we had transfers and as the subject lines says im still here in Feliciano!!! But the sad part is that im the only one that stayed! :( They took out both of the elders and my companion got transferred... it was really sad and everyone is a little depressed!! But we are going to get new elders here and i have my new companion already her name is Hermana Sobalvarro, she is from texas! Shes super cool and its going to be a lot of fun to be with her! She only has 4 months in the mission and im excited to help her out!! 

This week has been a little difficult for us because yet again we didnt have an investigator come to church! We have a lot of people who get excited and then they just dont come.... Its really hard to see that but we are moving forward with faith! so hopefully we have someone in the church this week!!!! :)

We are already in December!!!! What?? when did that happen?? its crazy!! But i am really excited for this time of year because its a special time when people are more focused on the things that really matter like the family and also the savior!! I love this time of year its my favorite because now there are so many people that are focused on the things that Christ did for us! 

This week i found the scripture in 2 ne 19:6 which reads, 
 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

I love this scripture because its also in the bible. I love that it has some different titles that Christ has! I also love this scripture because everytime i think about it i always think about Christmas! haha so i invite you all to be thinking about what the true meaning of Christmas is! :)

Sorry i dont have much time but i just wanted to let you all know that i love you and hopĂ© that you all have a wonderful week!!! :)

November 23rd

Hola from feliciano!!! :) 

We are still alive and doing well here in Feliciano! :) Thiss week has been fun!! its been a little interesting as well this week! we got a text message from the leaders and they told us that we had to stay in our apartments yesterday because they decided it was going to be a little crazy! (Argentina had elections for president yesterday) and so we had to be home at 5 in the afternoon and had to stay in all that time! It was a little crazy but it wasnt too bad! so my companion and i just had a little movie night! haha we watched the testaments and made popcorn and a smoothie! It was pretty fun! haha but we are all safe and sound and Im so thankful that we are here in Feliciano because its really super calm! its a fun little town to work in! 

We are still working with a few investigators! Its a little hard and a little frustrating becuase no one wants to come to church! That is our big struggle at the moment is to get them to come to church! We go to look for them but they are sleeping when we go, but we have faith!! With faith all things are possible!

I found this scritpure the other day and it really caught my attention and so i thought that i should share it with you all!! I really love that if we have faith God can do the miracles but if there is no faith He cant do them! So when we have faith and are doing our part God will do His!! :) 

12 For if there be no faith among the children of men God can do no miracle among them; wherefore, he showed nothimself until after their faith.

I love you all and hope that you all have a great Thanksgiving week!! :)
