I HOPE YOU GET BIG HUGS AND KISSES FROM EVERYONE ONE IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!!! I LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IN OTHER NEWS. This we we are seeing the Happy Birthday of CHILE!!!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO... OOOOOOOOOOOOOO
AND it's so fun. Theres traditional Chilean music playing everywhere and people are nicer and the chilean red, white, and blue are EVERYWHERE. It's a big week long party basically. the ward activity goes from 10:30am to 11:00pm and its just gonna be so much fun. We eat empanadas a lot (which arte like fried hot pockets) and food in general. a LOT. It's so fun in Chile right now
Also my compañera keeps making food from peru and getting me fat, so if I come home looking like a blueberry, NOT MY FAULT.
This week Margarita went to church!!!!!!!!!!! it was such a chock (which is a terrible thing for a missionary to say) but she never wanted to progress. We asked her to get baptized and she said, "I wanna wait until I am about to die and then I will get baptized" and we're like IT DOESNT WORK LIKE THAT.
But you know what, she came to church and it was awesome. She is one step closer to the peace and love and happiness and joy and perfection that the gospel brings, and we know that she and her family will make it there.
In other news, the work is moving forward. We looked for a recent convert the other day and found his MOM! So we taught her and she was awesome, It's amazing how God works with us.
Whenever an appointment falls through, we always end up finding someone else to teach and you just know that it was in God's plan all along. He closes some doors to be able to open the ones that are going to be the most fruitful.
This week I learned a LOT about humility. It's amazing how important it really is! And it's so hard to have it!! To the world, humility looks like a weakness, but it's a strength, it's a giant strength. It's a Christlike Attribute, and how do I know it's a strength?? Because it takes a whole gosh darn lot of strength to be humble.
But the thing with humility is that it's one of the traits that we know we need to develope to be more like Christ, and we know that being more like Christ brings us more happiness. ENTONCES,
Humility helps us be happier! It's very simple. And it's the same with patience and love and virtue and diligence. They are attributes designed to make us a happier people. It's amazing.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!
