HAUPEIII Mbae’ la porte? Como estan? Whats new?

So it was another great week here in Campo Grande, and it was my last week here too! I’m getting transferred! It was a surprise. Presidente called me on Friday before we actually have cambios or transfers and told me my changes. He was like “Hermana, you go home in 2 changes, and I’ve really felt that I want to use you the best I can” so at this point I was like well I guess I am going to stay here to help in the office with Hermana Millet for 5 changes by the end of 2, but then he’s like “I want you to train a new Hermana, and also I need you to open up a new area and do a pink wash there. It’s an area that has had problems with missionaries, but I trust and I know that you’ll be able to show them what missionary work is, it’s a great area.” and he asked if I was okay with that and I was like what? CLARO QUE SI! OF COURSE! Fun fact: I’ve always wanted to end my mission training a new missionary because it’s just the best because they’re so excited about the work and ready to just go! So to do a pink wash I’ll for sure be working super hard, and I know that heavenly father blesses us and knows our desires. I’m ready!!! So tomorrow I basically just get dropped off in the middle of a new area and get started. I’m going back to the country side (campaña) ha-ha I’m going to work on the dirt roads again with the shacks! My comfort zone!

For news in Campo Grande this week….. We were in a trio for a couple of days, and we were contacting some references and we found this older lady name Neka. She started telling us that she’s catholic, but she will listen but she will never change. So we got to know her a little more, then we sang a song, and said a prayer. Then we started teaching her and she changed, her face changed. By the end of the lesson she was accepting to pray to know, she wanted to know for herself if this was true and if it could bless her family, and she invited us over for another appointment!  Honestly all of us could feel the spirit and it was so awesome to see how much she changed!

This week we had dirty water for a couple of days literally dirt was coming out of our shower ha-ha I’ve never showered in dirty water before, but what do you do? My hair felt dirtier after ha-ha.

Yesterday we got an opportunity to go to a training for the open house of the temple and we get to help with the questions before and after the tour. Then they let us go inside the temple!!!! IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL! Its’ been like a year and 3 months since I’ve been inside of the temple!  I’m excited to help with the open house and just be a part of it!

I love the mission so much! It’s the best thing ever. I’m so so so grateful that I have the gospel in my life. I’m so grateful for the atonement of Christ! HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT! I’ve seen his atonement change so many people’s lives, and I’ve seen it literally save me here in the mission. I owe everything to my mission, it’s given me the opportunity to truly change! I am so grateful that I was able to have 3 changes in the big city ha-ha even though it was so HARD sometimes. I’ve grown so much, I’ve learned so much about the person I want to be and how to truly stay focused even if you are in a world full of distractions! I’ve seen the hand of the Lord in my life, in the mission. I know this is truly THE LORDS WORK. We are just his instruments. Exact obedience brings miracles, and Heavenly Father guides us, IM SO PUMPED FOR GENERAL CONFERENCE! Remember that Heavenly Father talks through his servants and it is so important to receive personal revelation!

Pray for me and my new area and my new comp! I would appreciate it!
