week 20

dearest family and friends,

i don't have a ton of time today, but i am sad to say that Hermana Pilling has received her Visa for Spain, and is heading there TONIGHT :( we received the call on Thursday, and its been a crazy couple of days figuring everything out, but she will be leaving us tonight at 7! luckily we do get the amazing opportunity of eating dinner tonight at the mission home with President Clayton and his wife :) ps: (the old home of the Ballard family! pretty sweet.) so back to los dos Hermanastomorrow. crazy! i am sad to see her go, we have loved being in a trio SO much! but i am excited for her to officially start her mission.... to finally go to the MTC, and to finally learn Spanish!
other then having all the crazy visa stuff going on (we've been downtown a LOT to figure things out!), this week was a lot slower! we struggled finding new investigators and didn't teach hardly any lessons. we worked super super hard though, so maybe the Lord is just testing us :) we always have lots of time to talk to people though on buses/subways, and we never lost the faith. our investigators are doing well, we just need to actually teach them.....
the mission is amazing. i love it everyday :) i love my Savior, i love this Gospel. i LOVE the BOM!!
read Ether 12:27, it has helped me a lot this week. i know He gives me weaknesses so i can grow closer to Him. also, have i ever mentioned how much i love speaking and teaching in Spanish? :) its improving everyday, gracias a Dios.

ps: SHOUT OUT to my boy T-money, Elder Peery, who hits ONE YEAR this week. i am so proud!! and so happy and so excited. ill be blowing kisses all day long :) #iloveyou
