09.30.13 Picture Update

09.30.13 Shello

Hey Hey Hey,
So this week was filled with lots of ups and downs and bigger ups and bigger downs.. but mostly ups :) 
I got my "hija" on Tuesday. She is from Argentina and her name is Hermana Portillo. At first I couldn't understand a thing that she said because of her accent... cuz people from argentina pronounce "y" and "ll" like shhhhh. So it was like "sho soy Hermana Portisho de Argentiina" Ha Ha. But I am getting more and more used to her accent now. She is really sweet and she is really excited to be here on the mission. The thing that we are having a hard time with is that she is 25 and a little too mature for me. I love to laugh. and I like to talk about things other then church sometimes, but for her EVERYTHING is spiritual. We have LOTS to learn from eachother :) Yep. umm. Remember Berta? The lady that has cancer? Well we were thinking about leaving her because she wasn't progressing but guess what!? She told us she knows the Book of Mormon is true and that this is the true church of Christ. Butt. .she doesn't want to get baptized without her husband so we are working really hard on teaching him (She wants to go to the temple and be sealed to him. sweet huh?) Yeah so that happened. What else? I don't know. I am super tired ha ha and my feet hurt. Asi es la mision. hmm. My Spanish is a lot better now that I have to speak it 24-7 another thing that is really good but at the same time I miss having good long conversations in English :( But I know it is for the better.

I don't know what else to write. I am going to send pictures :) Love you guys mucho mucho mucho!

Choose the right.
Be good children.
read. pray. all that good stuff..
oh and GO TO CHURCH! 

that is all :)
