I'm going to be a mother!

November 9, 2010

Well, sorry I didn´t write yesterday... I was in Bahía Blanca. No, we didn´t have transfers, I just had to go to a leadership meeting because apparently President wants me to corrupt a new missionary.
(Mom it´s going to be Hna. Collette or Freeman. And both of them are coming to Mar del Plata, so I´ll meet them both :) So we had a GREAT day in Bahía and learned a TON and totally used what I learned today in a lesson and got a baptismal date with a guy named Nicolas. I just love the things we learn! With all these changes we´ve been having we needed more training to be trainers, district leaders, and zone leaders because the new missionaries are being taught differently now in the MTC. I hope that makes sense, I spent two nights in a row in a bus and I haven´t gotten a lot of sleep... Fortunately I got permission today (directly from my friend, Present :) to let you all know I´m alive.

But I´m really excited to be training. I´m a little nervous, but mostly excited. My hijita and I will have a couple great transfers here and we´re going to use all the things they taught us in the leadership conference! So it means Hna. Wilding is leaving, which is sad, but Hna. Tingey and I will both be training here and it´s going to be great. Hna. Wilding will leave on Sunday and then Hna. Tingey will come stay in my house for a couple days until the hijas get here on Wedesday morning.

Other than that, we had a baptism on Sunday! Iara finally got baptized after about 5 months of investigating and EVERYONE was very happy, especially her mom. She was just so prepared and she has such a great support system with the other young women. The church is so true and we´re hoping to have some more baptisms here soon!

My birthday was good... we pulled into Mar del Plata at midnight and the Elders sang me happy birthday, then we got home and the Hermanas sang to me, and then I woke up at 6:30 that same morning and I already felt like my birthday was the day before. Birthdays aren´t that special on the mission... it´s just another day to work! But my district leader brought me an alfajor to the district meeting and we put a candle in it and it was kind of like a party. Birthdays just aren´t cool any more... hahaha. But thank you for all the peanut-buttery candy, Mommy! You´re the best!

Well, I´m exhausted... I love you all though, and thank you for the prayers. I´m definitely feeling them! I´m praying for you!
