Words really can’t express how grateful I am to have been able to be a missionary. I love teaching people about Jesus Christ! If you click the photo, it will take you to a prezi about my mission. 🙂 Advertisements

Chau Argentina

Hey everyone! Well, it´s not Monday and I´m not in a ciber, it´s Tuesday morning bien tempranito and I am writing from a hotel called ´´Templo del Sol´´ in my favorite pueblito, San Antonio! This week I didn´t count the number of lessons I taught. How weird! On Monday morning at 4 am Gladys and Nelson took Hermana Magnusson and I to the bus terminal to head to Salta. We got to the mission offices, took care of whatever business we still had, and had our interview with Presidente Levrino. On Monday afternoon I headed out with Hermana Gaitan to go see some of her old investigators in Salta capital and it was so good to get out and talk about the gospel still, and invite them to follow Jesus Christ and be baptized! Tuesday morning I headed with the group to the Salta airport and Pte and Hermana Levrino to send them off, we sang ´´Para Siempre Dios esté con vos´´ and then I spent the day adding the new cell phone numbers of all the missionaries to their tablet and phone, and making dinner for the incoming missionaries! I have no idea how you call this food in English, I´ll just send the picture. It was really cool to spend the day with Hermana Levrino and see how her life is, her family is so beautiful! We went to the airport again to receive the new missionaries, they were so full of happiness! It was so sweet how they tried to talk in Spanish, luckily we got FIVE new sisters, three Chilenas, a North American, and a Porteña (from Buenos Aires). During their welcome dinner They had a lot of questions, mostly about the areas, I tried not to focus too much on the heat or mosquitoes, but with the Assistants we talked a lot about our favorite miracles that we´ve gotten to be apart of and, I didn´t even notice until someone told me but I was committing all the sister missionaries to invite everyone to be baptized in the first lesson, haha! Wednesday they had their training and we got to know who their trainers would be, so Hermana Franco is training and I got to see her aGAIN! What happiness! I tried to help in the offices and then finally arrived my FAMILY! It was like having two worlds collide (isn´t that a famous song or something?) and it has been really special to take them around to see families and investigators in Orán. After doing the touristy thing in Salta for a bit we headed to Orán for a baptism this weekend, it was of Máxima, José, and Daiana. It was so sweet! Dad gave the prayer. In Orán we were treated like kings and the Oyarzú family even taught Grammie and Dad how to simbar (make the little braid) empanadas. Yesterday we headed back south to El Carmen and we visited Hermano Ramón, we got to hear about his first trip to the Temple, he did baptisms there!!!! And we rushed around trying to see some of the converts and families I love, I don´t know if you guys remember Nona, but she was SOOOO happy to see us, and us to see her (and her daughter Carmen, who got baptized in November of 2011). We gave everyone their new member kits, and Grammie was so awesome, she brought thumb drives so I put the Book of Mormon in audio on a thumb drive for nona to listen to, because she doesn´t know how to read. After like, 10 years, she will be able to study the Book of Mormon! Today we´re headed out of El Carmen to be in Salta with good time to take the plane to Buenos Aires, where we´ll be going to the Temple. I just remembered another tidbit when I looked at my feet – my Dad and grandparents saw my shoes (my best ones that I had left, the red ones) and the first moment we could took me to the center of Salta to get me some new ones. I walked out of the store with them on my red ones were so bad we trashed them right there. I was walking very tilted haha. Granddad was the life of the party, everyone loves him! In lunch with Nelson, Rufino, and Gladys and the sister missionaries on Sunday, he had us all singing Mexican folk songs while Rufino played the guitar. They´re holding their own with Spanish, and Grammie speaks a LOT! Presidente gave me a little leaflet called ´´En Pos de Excelencia´´ that asks us to put goals for espiritual improvement and I am very grateful for this program. Granddad shared a scripture with Hermano Ramón yesterday that I wanted to share with you guys: “And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.” in John 17:3. How well do we know God? Do we pass our day with Him? I am so so so humbled and grateful for the opportunity to be His daughter and servant. Next week I will remove my plaque wearing His son´s name over my heart, but engravened it will never be erased. I love you, can´t wait to see you!

Love, Hermana Wills
