Wow it sounds like your week was very eventful. Im glad my replacement was found (mimi) hahah.
This week was really great! Time is flying by here in Oran. I love my new compaƱera, Hermana Morales. She is way clam and sweet and nice. It didn’t take long to get used to her.

Ahh mom you’re going to kill me. I really have nothing to say again this week...hahah uhhhhhhhhhh

This week we found a lot of new investigators. Still we have none progressing, but there is hope. FAITH. haaha We saw Sara Tuesday and she told us the the book of Mormon didnt “convince” her. I then asked her if she prayed and she said yes and that she thinks she is going to go to another church. I then asked her if she read it and then she said no. .....yeah you got the read the Book of Mormon hahaha.....but then the lesson was really great, we were able to talk about what is verdeara intencion.... (I forgot how to say that in English) true intent? idk sounds weird. .... but it was really good and she admitted that she hasn’t been reading or praying with verdadera intencion. And it seemed like to me she was really determined to know. 

Fun fact this week we haven’t had a toilet for 3 days.....

Oh yeah the email I sent you is asking about my travel plans. So if you want to confirm the airport and stuff that will be great. 

I promise that I will make better note this week of weird things that happen so my letters will be more interesting. 

Be brave little champions.

Hola familia. como estan?

Today is transfers and of course I’m staying here in Oran. My new comp is Hermana Morales de Chile. She hasn’t come yet but I know her a little bit and she is really great! So im happy. Also this will be my fourth comp from Chile. So far I’ve gotten along with cada una de mi Chileanas so I think it will be good.

Shout out to Hermana smith.... capacitadora en Tucuman!!! I’m so jealous that she will be able to do divisions en SIMOCA. Also Hermana Herrera wrote me today and Jonathan and another investigador that I taught en Perico got baptized. I’m so happy for them. I’ll send pictures.

This week was good. I feel so sad because I feel like lately I’ve had nothing to write about. This week was once again a lot of traveling and a whole a lot of no progression. (Seems to be the theme of the transfer) BUT I have so much animos that this transfer will be better and that we will see some milagros!

This month we are focusing in the Book of Mormon. I have such a strong testimony that if we read it everyday will be able to have the strength to overcome whatever trial we face. De verdad, the Book of Mormon has such power our conversion to Heavenly father and gives us so much direction and COMFORT. I think as a family we should read the book of Mormon cover to cover before I come home

I love you all so much! Miss you tons and tons. Continue to be brave and diligent.

Happy Birthday America!

Hello Hello!
(I know didn’t say “Hola”...I’m feeling so American right now)

Happy Fourth of July! Ah I cant believe how fast time is flying. Adam is at EFY right now jeez it felt like just yesterday he wrote me in the MTC telling me about his experience last year. I made pancakes to keep up the tradition. Hehe also fun fact today was the first time in toooddoooo mi mission that I ate strawberries. IT WAS SO GOOD. 

This week was really great SARA came to church and I love her. Dario (her boyfriend) didn’t come, but I think she liked it. Saturday we had a great lesson with her. She read the introduction and prayed about it but said that she felt really confused and that she thought it was a lie. But we then taught the restoration and she was REALLY paying attention. and basically she is like girl version of Joseph smith. She has so many desires to join a church but doesn’t know which one to join. And wow. She had a great experience at church too. Justo clase de principios was about the law of chastity so it was good....because like bro, you need to get married. 

Tonight we leave for sSalta for consejo de lideres. I’m so excited because were asked to study about the Book of Mormon so I feel like Presidente Chaparro is going to say some good stuff to really help our area!  

Ahhh I don’t really know what else to say. Hahah “This week was the same as last week”.

Oh congrats to DANI and her CUTEST BABY EVER. BABY ANNIE!!! I cant wait to meet my new cousin.

Love you all! Que tengan un buen dia! Eat a hamburger. Enjoy the fireworks.
