First Cambios (Transfers)

Hola familia y amigos!

So today was my first day of cambios!  I haven't even finished my training and they're moving me!  

....Just kidding!  I'm in Curacautin for another 6 weeks at least.  

Not much has happened since Wednesday.  I have some pictures of our zone and district as well as pictures of some of the members here!  

I've decided to make my companion a good home made meal every Monday.  She can't cook very well and making food for other people is something I enjoy.  Today, we made what's called "Papas de Pastor"  The potatoes here are so good!  Well, all the produce here is amazing and super cheap. On the main street there are fresh vegetable markets everywhere.  And the veggies are local too!

We have another baptism this weekend!  Her name is Gloria and she's almost 14 years old.  I thought she was at least 16 when we first met her.  She's been waiting for a little over a year for her parents to give her permission to be baptized.  Hermana Rimmasch and I were praying and fasting that the hearts of her parents, specifically her mom, would be softened.

This past week, Gloria's mother asked her what she wanted for her birthday.  Gloria said she wanted to be baptized and her mother miraculously agreed! It's amazing to see that the Lord is mindful of everyone, even a 13 year old girl.  I know that He hears and answers our prayers. You should never feel insignificant because Heavenly Father loves you more than you know.  Pour out your worries, fears and questions to him.  I promise you, He will respond.  He will help you, guide you and comfort you because God really is the perfect father.

Scripture of the week:  Matthew 7: 7-11

 7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
 For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seekethfindeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.
 Or what man is there of you, whom if his son ask bread, will he give him a stone?
 10 Or if he ask a fish, will he give him a serpent?
 11 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

Word of the week:  Negocio - a little store in the front of a house.  It's kind of like a corner store but all of them sell pan (bread)

Love you all!  Have a good week!

Our zone

This is Natalia. She was baptized 8 months ago and is super amazing.  She comes out to teach with us about 3 times a week.  We´re helping her learn English.  She´s planning on serving a mission (she´s hoping Peru) and her family wants to go to the Salt Lake temple in August.

Going freestyle!
