Im twenty threeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. Feels pretty weird, but I’ve also been saying that I’m 23 years old for the past few months. Its kind of a thing here to say it before your actual birthday. But it was a really fun, really special week.
Its been another great week! And this week is gonna be even better, especially Sunday. 😉 But it will be a little crazy, cause we will find out transfers on Saturday, then birthday, then pday, then transfers. Woo!
I normally only post letters from Kellie, but after Kellie wrote about going to the Safari Park in Rancagua, I had this experience that I shared with Kellie…
Kellie at the same Safari Park the week prior to seeing this article…
So like I said, this transfer has been full of travels, but its been SO fun.
Sorry, but lets be honest, now that my time is running out in the mish, the holidays are even more normal than usual. I did buy myself a bag of gummy spiders, just like last year. Oh, but I did do something mega crazy. A member made sushi (we learned and helped) and I TRIED IT AND I HATED IT! IT was so gross, and I was suffering, trying to hide the gag reflex. It was a roll with avacado, cream cheese and shrimp. Ewwwww. But at least I tried! 😉
Transfers went just fine this week! It always makes me laugh, we FILL the bus terminal in Rancagua, all the missionaries and our luggage. I met up with my CHILEAN companion Hna Colil (from Santiago), but everyone thinks shes a gringa. An elder that just left our area said, “Shes chilean? She looks like shes from AMERICA.”
Wow, I can’t believe how fast this week went. Hna Silva and I are keeping busy, I tell you what. We have improved a ton number wise, in a lot of different areas, which is pretty much thanks to her, she ROCKS, especially with the members. We had 8 lessons with members present this week! Last week we had 3 and normally we are lucky to have like 4 or 5. So yeah, it was cool. Also, we had 5 investigators come to church! In fact, attendance at church this week was the highest I’ve seen in my time here in Paine. YAY!!
