Sick Week with Grandma

Kids of German Pomares. So cute!
My mission Grandma, Wilsynn Wheat (the lime juice story one, yeah??) She was going to train a greenie this transfer but the night before the greenie was supposed to arrive, the CCM called us to tell us she wasn't coming... So Hermana Wheat had a 'still born'! Hahaha! (Not sure if that joke was appropriate... My judgement of social adequacy is out the window.) (Mom's Note: A 'stillborn' is mission jargon for a missionary who goes through the MTC but then decides not to go on the mission.) So anyways, the APs and I were the only triplet in the mission, so I had some emergency changes (literally 12 hours after unpacking... kill me!) and I am now back in Villa Flor! I am in the area Los Laureles, which borders Villa Venezuela. (And I may or may not visit my recent converts who are on the edge every once in a while.) I seriously love Hna. Wheat and we are having a blast and I am learning a ton from her! And her Spanish is flawless. She's a TL too so we get to do divisions a lot so that'll be fun! And her grandpa lives on Millcreek Way in Tooele so small world! And she is seriously so funny and we just have a blast. She's also dying this transfer and we're trying extra hard not to be trunkie. BUT we're overcoming any of that with our baptismal goal for this transfer... 14 people! And we are so doing it. And speaking of baptisms...

This week we baptized the CUTEST family. It was seriously a miracle that their baptism happened this week, but we had faith that it would happen and it did! It was the coolest experience. 

On a lower note, I decided to be stupid and forgot to bless my street fresco (juice) and was puking my guts out within two hours and for the rest of the day. And all of it made it in the toilet or trash except for once. And my comp was sick and couldn't smell anything so she cleaned it up for me. What a gem. 

Well, I have definitely gained a testimony of the Lord's ability to help us make things happen if we are willing to believe that He can! I love this work and the church is true!

Love you and miss you and hope to hear from you all! Seriously though, my inbox has been so empty lately... Thanks for the love. Just kidding. But really.

Have a great week! XOXO
