Hello dear friends and family!
For those of you in the United States, I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and eat a ton of turkey and pumpkin pie for me — because I won´t be doing any of that stuff haha! Seriously, like, the only thing Bolivianos eat is like, fried chicken or steak, and pumpkins don´t grow here at all! But I will still be happy and remembering all of my wonderful blessings all day long, so don´t you guys worry about me.
I BOUGHT NEW SHOES THIS WEEK! Ok so I know that one of you guys probably care about that but just so youi know I have worn literally the same pair of shoes for over a year now and that´s fine because they´re super comfy but they are also incredibly dirty and have left my feet with these incredible “Z” tan lines…I´ll send a pic. SO I´m trying to heal the awful tan lines but also just try and hide them cause they´re super embarrassing. 🙂
Annnnd we have officially finished all our exchanges for the transfer! We did exchanges with the other sisters in Abundancia and I was with a newbie, Hna. Pérez from Ecuador! It was pretty awesome, she´s a total sweetheart and for only having 5 weeks in the mission is already such a great teacher.
Next week we will have TRANSFERS and we have no idea what to expect! Because Hna. Herrera, my compie, is gong home a few weeks so that she can spend Christmas with her family, but will stilll be in the misison for two more weeks afters transfers, so we don´t know if she´s gonna stay here with me for those two weeks or WHAT but I´ll let you all know next week 🙂
I found 200 false dollars on the ground. I almost got excited.
This week we found a lot of awesome new people to teach! It was really a miracle. Something I´ve learned is that there really are people out here that are waiting to here and accept the gospel, and we´ll never find them iof we don´t talk to everyone! Heavenly Father is preparing people to hear and accept this gospel.
Hermana Herrera told me that now she wants to study beauty. I had my doubts, so we did each others make up the other night (note: We did NOT leave the house all made up!). I´ll attatch a pic and y´all can decide who has better make up skills. 😉
I love you all so much and I hope this Thanksgiving you can all remember how much the gospel and blessed and changed your lives! It´s the greatest thing we have to be thankful for.
