August 17, 2015

Well to start out Hna Barrios is from Viña del Mar Chile, specifically Con-Con, and she's 23 and super excited to be in the mission :)  She got baptized 2 years ago and her testimony is incredible.  Wow. For real.  We're working super hard and learning a ton too :)

This week we talked with lots and lots and lots of people, and found a lady who is awesome!  She listened to missionaries before, but stopped because some people told her we don't believe in Christ.  When we met her we watched "Gracias a que Él Vive" ("Because He Lives" in English.... I think), and it was really powerful.  The spirit filled the room with a peace that I can't really describe, but she felt it and we felt it, and she's really excited to start listening to the missionaries again.

Oh, and this week is the week of companions past, haha.  When I went to the mission home to pick up Hna Barrios Hna Calderas was there to pick up her new companion too, and it was so awesome to see her again :D just as loca as always, haha.  Then later that day all the missionaries who were finishing the mission were meeting up close to the mission home, and I got to see Hermana Bretón again :D it made my heart happy to see them both again

And, a scripture for the week:
John 8:12
"Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."

Love you guys!

Keep on keeping on,
Hermana Coombs
