Hermana Hipol vs. Yours, Mine, and Ours


Wow. Just when I think things cannot be crazier, The Lord brings me to a new level of craziness, and really, all I can do is laugh and keep working. I love being a missionary.

This week we had changes! Hermana little finished her training and they sent her away to open an area. I am so proud of her! I love her so much.

My new companion is Hermana Rodriguez! She is the first sister here in the mission from Spain. She is crazy and I totally love her!! Changes meeting was madness. A lot of missionaries went home and not very many came in. I was also blindsided with my new assignment… Hermana Rodriguez and I are Sister Training Leaders. I have no idea what I am doing, but I am excited to see what the Lord has in store… The thing is, that Instead of having us both in one area, they decided to mesh our old areas together. So Hermana Rodriguez and I are currently living in two houses, we have two areas, two wards (but we only attend one), and it is madness. We have definitely had to master our planning skills.

Besides changes, our schedule was so packed! On Thursday we had Zone meeting, and on Friday, we took our investigators to the temple in San Salvador. They told us last minute that Hermana Rodriguez would be teaching and I would be doing a special music number. So, we were up til about three in the morning making sandwiches for the investigators, and making a giant plan of salvation for her class. I ended up singing Beautiful Zion with two other Elders and it actually turned out really pretty. The spirit was so strong. I just love the temple! I invite all those who can, to take the time to get to the temple this week and just feel the love of your Heavenly Father.

Well, we finished with the Temple and then on Saturday and Sunday we had a beautiful General Conference. Thanks to some technical difficulties, I could not watch it in English. It was a little bit of a bummer but the spirit was the same and I learned so many things. How interesting that they talked so much about the families right? So crazy! I think that my favorite talk was definitely that of Elder Uchtdorf when he talked about Grace. If I have learned anything on the mission, it is that we really do nothing. The Lord asks us to give our all and he will always fill us to overflowing. I have not been able to take one step in this mission that was not powered by the grace of my Saviors Atonement. He carries us and helps us achieve our potential.

I love you all so much. Never forget that the Lords atonement applies in every aspect of our lives.

Now, go change the world and apply what you learned in Conference!

Hurrah for Israel!
