Last Hola From Texas!

Hola from Texas for the last time! (:
          This week was super crazy busy and flew by! I hope you all had a great week like I did!! We didn't do much except teach and visit people all day long...which I do every day! (: So it was a great week! We had a branch Christmas party on Saturday and so many people came! We also found out that we have more youth in our branch than most of the wards and are starting to form a youth program which is amazing!! I'm really going to miss this little branch and everyone that I have met here, but I'm so excited to leave for Argentina finally!
          I don't know if anyone will get this...but this is my joke for the day. In the movie Santa Clause 2 when they say "The santa-fication process has begun!" I decided that when someone is baptized and they receive the gift of the Holy Ghost it's like "The sanctification process has begun!"...I think it's funny and I'm sure Daddy will laugh too (; haha
          Well, I had two exchanges last week and took over the area, found a lot of new people to teach, and learned a lot of new words in Spanish. Other than that, I am now trying to pack everything and get ready for a long trip on Wednesday. Thank you everyone who has written me or sent packages while I have been here. Thank you for the prayers, I feel them every day! Love you all so much and can't wait to write y'all next week from a different side of the world! Have a great week and always look for the little blessings the Lord gives us each and every day! Have a Merry Christmas and try to give back to the Savior for the gift of eternal life and salvation He has given us<3

Hola! Visa Came Through!

Hola everyone!!!
          Sorry I didn't get to write home last week! I went to the temple and the library was closing in 30 minutes when we came in. But the last two weeks have been so great!! Thanksgiving was amazing and we spent it with two families in the branch! We had no more miles to use the car so biked everywhere for a whole week and we have a HUGE area so it was a little hard. Lots of fun memories though (:
          In church I had to translate and then teach Gospel Principles which was really scary! And my birthday was so awesome! Best birthday ever!! Two other youth in the branch had the same birthday so we went over for cake and they gave me some lotion! And biggest news of all......IM GOING TO ARGENTINA on December 18th! Which is really soon and I'm pretty nervous, but I know it's where the Lord needs me right now and I can't wait to go! I'll get to spend a little less than a year there but am sure will fall in love with that mission just like I have with this one in Texas! Sometimes we don't know why things happen for a reason but I know the Lord always has a hand in our lives. I know that we matter to Him and that He is always listening to us and waiting to answer us too.
          I hope you all had a really great Thanksgiving and were able to remember all of the great blessings Heavenly Father has given us. This last week we have been asking our investigators what gift they could give Christ for Christmas. He has asked us that if we love Him, to keep His commandments. We are all imperfect, which means He wants us to change and continuously try to become better. What will you change in your life to show God you love Him? I am going to try and submit my will to His because I know He always knows better than me.
          I love you all so much and hope you have a great week! Can't wait to email y'all one more time from here in Texas before I leave for Rosario! Have a great week!<3
