HOLA FAMILIA Y AMIGOS!
This is my last letter!!! CHE, can you believe it!!? I have so many mixed feelings!
I’m so grateful for the privilege I have had to serve a full-time mission! I have GROWN SO MUCH and have felt so much love from my Savior and have learned to be more humble, patient, diligent, and to trust in the Lord. I feel like I’m finishing a grand chapter in my life, but I know there are many more great chapters that await.
Thank you for all that you have done for me. Your prayers, encouragement, love and support. I feel so much love and so much happiness. I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and that Jesucristo suffered and atoned for us. I love the culture, the language, the people, the mission....TODO.
This week was so perfect. We had a white Christmas here in Santiago de estero! Graciela, Malena, Lorena, and Sofia were baptized along with 3 other investigadores from the Elders de nuestro distrito. To see 7 personas dressed in white was such a spiritual experience and I am so honored to take part of these once in a life time feelings. To find, teach, and watch someone change and take upon themselves the name of Jesus Christ and See the LIGHT enter their lives.
I hope you all have a great Christmas and that you all take a moment to remember our Savior.
See you next week! Die 28!!! WHHOOOO
Ps. Forgive me for my English ha-ha
Also, my district loves me and they bought me a cake to celebrate 18 messes Hamah. poor so la foot...

Okay, this week went by so fast and I felt like we did nothing. haha. We went to Salta for Consejo de Lideres....my last one!!! :( :( really I’ve kind of been in denial that I have no time left and I’ve never felt like I’m going home until this week...it's been a bit sad. We also had our last zone conference and it feels so weird.
This week we might have 4 baptisms!! Sofia is kind of a miracle. She is best friends with a member here and has been to church before, so she will for sure be baptized this week she has 10 años. Graciela and her nietas Malena y Lorena didn’t come to church this week!! :( church started at 9:30 but she wasn’t there so my comp and I jumped in un remis to look for her but when we got to her house she said NO but didn’t give us a reason. Then later that day we went to her house to have a lesson and she felt really sad for things happening with her family and sad because she smoked 1 cigarette and felt unworthy. :( ;( but she is so good and the nietas have a calendar with the dia of their baptism circled which made our hearts melt....so we are going to ask President Chaparro if they can be baptized with only 2 asistenia and no 3 because we are scared that they won’t come to church Christmas day because Argentina culture, no one sleeps Christmas eve....it's literally a party until 6am.
I sent photos of us in the rain. What normally takes us 10 min to walk, took us 30 min haha oops. Trying not to fall in the mud takes work you know.
I can’t believe I only have 2 weeks left! Keep lighting the world and sharing your testimony with others! I am so happy to be a missionary :)
Love you all so much!!
See you very soon!
