 Maria Louisa! This one was so amazing I was so worried about how it would go but it went pretty well and I know that through God and through our hard work that all things are possible we just have to put our faith in the Lord and everything will work out I know this with all of my heart! don't ever forget that okay??(:
 And this one I am just standing in for Hermana Cuava because her and my comp taught her but it was so amazing to see her get baptized the spirit was there so strong and I know for sure that she is free from her sins.

A THOUSAND little awesome THINGS
Okay so this week was pretty awesome remember the one investigator of ours who knocked on our door? Well she got baptised on Saturday, and it was pretty awesome the spirit was there pretty strong, and I felt like she actually felt the spirit the hardest part is that she is starting to forget things she is 80 years old but she has the sense of humor of a 14 year old! She is so funny she said that she is going to come to Utah after I finish my mission so that would be pretty amazing! I know that through God all things are possible and that if you put your all in God will help you!

This week we had a class on faith and it was so good I loved it so much it helped me with my faith so much and how I need to start having more I think also he said faith with out works is dead and honestly its so true! So crazy but it is so very true and honestly I know that if i do all I can for what I believe I will be blessed I just need to do it! just do it! 

he asked us a question he asked why do we have faith? and that question really hit me like why do we have faith and its to hope but its not only just to hope it is believing that the future holds something for us but the only was we can apply it is if we use our accion and that is the only way that it can go all the way through is if we act. like the scriptures say faith without works is dead! so we need to act on what we believe it just doesn't work! 

we can know everything about the gospel all about God but if we never act upon it we will never have the chance to apply our faith because literally it is dead if you dont act upon it so do it i promise that you will be so blessed! 

this week really was amazing and I learned so much about faith and how we can apply it! I know that with God on our side we can do anything! Thank you so much for all of your testimonies and all of your prayers and everything you guys are so amazing! I love you guys!

thank you
con mucho amor

Okay so this week was good we did a lot of things but yeah so finally I think that this Saturday Maria louisa is going to get baptised. She remembered everything that we taught her on Saturday so that should be good! I am excited and nervous about it, but I know that through God all things are possible as well Loreto has a bautismo dia! I know that she will be baptised and married by this day so yeah!

Okay so besides that this week was just another normal week in Iquique. Me and my companion last week hiked in deep sand so it was kinda really exhausting but really beautiful! It's almost the same view from our apartment just kidding but it was pretty! I think I sent you those pictures! okay so yeah I learned how to say a lot more words in Spanish and that when we work hard we might not always see the impact we made, but right now I can really see that my work here has actually helped the people here and that when I leave that they wont just think she came and went they will think ohh she helped me and its kinda hard because I feel like I don't help anyone because half the people here don't understand me still and its frustrating but I am sure that it will always be like that . . but I know that through God that anything really anything is possible that if we pray with faith he will always answer our prayers. We just actually need to pray with that faith that he will answer our prayers and that through us miracles can happen! We just need to put all of our faith in God and we can be made instruments in his hands just give your all to him!
I love you guys so much thank you so much for all of that which you do it was awesome to see you guys over skype this week I love you guys so much you guys are growing up so fast thank you for all you do and your example you all are to me always thank you I hope that you have the best week ever I love you guys so much keep on being awesome!

te amo muchesemo

Okay so this week was good. We had a lot of lessons. Its hard because a lot of people here think that its okay not to get married because there parents never were, so they wonder why is the paper so important.  We explain why and its hard because we are teaching like 5 different couples that need to get married , and 2 of them would be baptized if they had been married but that's okay I guess for now because I know they will its just the time that we are waiting on now, but like everything this has taught me so much the importance of marriage and everything, And that I want to be with my family forever and if I don't get married in the temple I cannot imagine not knowing that I wont be with my family after this life here on earth! 

Well there is that but this week was awesome, and in the mood of mothers day we had an activity that we had with the members and our investigators and it was really amazing. The spirit was there so strong! I know that our mothers are so amazing and if it wasn't for them we wouldn't be here. So anyways I love you guys so much thank you for your example to me! 

I just want you to know that if you ever need anything that God is here for you and that He listens to you always, and if you have any doubts just don't because He is there if you believe with all of your heart and soul. I can promise you one thing weather you believe it or not HE IS LISTENING now is your time just to hear it to move the extra things in the way out of the way so you can hear Him because I promise he is listening! I bare testimony that He is listening that He answers our prayers always that He always will help us. 
We just need to do as Moroni 10 says and ask with a real intent! I know with a surety that he hears us! Thank you for everything you guys do and your spirit!
I love you guys so much! Thank you for everything I love you guys and 
hope that you guys have the best week every!!!!
I love you guys so much! 
Well keep pushing forward
doing your best
always praying!
