October 27, 2014

Primero, I want to apologize for the ridiculously short email last week.  Haha, we didn't have a ton of time to write, so it was definitely a sub-par letter.  The good news is I have much more time this week to write :) woohoo!

The other day we were walking down the street and we started talking to un hombre, and he started talking to us in English.  We kept talking in español because we thought he was just messing with us, but he kept talking in English and said he was from Wales.  Crazy!  Anyway, my brain tried switching to English to talk to him, but I was caught so off guard that I was speaking like someone who was just beginning to learn English.  I was seriously struggling so hard.  Hahaha who would've thought it could be so difficult to speak your native language :D

Some sad news from the past week is that the other Hermanas in our casa got transferred :'(  What makes it even sadder is that they would have stayed more time, but one of the Hermanas received an eight page love letter from a guy.  It was bad-news-bears.  Super triste, but as I like to say, "Shh shh shh, no more tears."

Hno Jorge is super prepared for baptism, and he's super excited too.  Only a few more weeks!  We have another investigator named Evelyn who started listening to the missionaries because she has a sister who is a member in Utah.  At the beginning she didn't believe in God, and she didn't really want to do anything to find out whether or not this was all true, but over the past few weeks she's been reading the Book of Mormon (this book changes lives people) and this past week she started to realized that she's received her answer!  It's crazy cool because the gospel changes lives for the better.  Every time we go to visit her she seems so much happier than when we first started teaching her.  Her problems are still the same, but the gospel has given her a better perspective on life.

After a few days alone in the casa, the new Hermanas are finally here!  Hna. Westover and Hna. Zeballos are awesome!  Haha super funny and super nice :)

We had a ton of fun this week.  I got the urge to cook this week, so I made no-bake cookies, french toast for breakfast yesterday, and Hna. Bretón and I made some brownies for the new Hermanas.  

Yesterday was the Stake Conference in Punta Arenas, and one thing that really stuck out to me was ACTION!  We can know something, be able to explain it, and have a testimony of it, but it we don't act on what we know it isn't going to do us any good.  Action is the key to progression!

Mucho love from this side of the world!  Espero que todos estén bien! Advice for the week: Laugh everyday because it makes life better :D

Stay sweet,
Hermana Coombs

PS. madre could you please correct my English because I am 1000% seguro that there are mistakes
