Miracles and Then Another One and a Few More

This week we were able to see so many miracles!
We finally found a less active family that are never home!! And it was
awesome cause the mom told us that lately she's been feeling
Unsatisfied and that she's been missing something else. Her kids
joined us and we were able to get a good relationship going.
We also visited another less active who is going through a hard time
so we been actually setting citas with her. And she gave us a
referral! He's a young English speaking guy but still! It was awesome
how excited she got!
There's also another girl Alicia who is 19. Her mom is active and
she's not. She's been warming up to us. And was so excited when we
came over , she likes to bake and she baked us all the things we told
we liked. It was awesome for so many reasons! The lesson was the best
part! She just opened up and was able to be herself.
I also went on exchanges with Hermana Chabert.
She's so wonderful and a great example of a lot of things!
As me and Hermana rowbury planned out the exchange, it didn't feel
right to have citas that day. So I decided to stop fighting the
prompting and cancel or move the citas we had that day except our
lunch member cita and do 8 hours of straight walking and contacting!
We sure were exhausted at the end of that night! But it felt great!!
We got a ton of PNIs and set up cita right then and there and even met
a good amount of people who had friends and family who are already
We even contacted white people! We contacted this one lady that just
lit up as we in unity shared our excitement of the BOM and started
testify of it. The bus came and she said she's going to go to the
website on it so that missionaries can visit her and thanked us for
talking to her! At the end of the exchange Hermana Chabert told me
that she really needed it. She really needed to do 8 hours of
contacting and that she felt great.  She's a little stressed with
everything that is going on with Hermana Allen and the area. But she's
doing all good things and wants to be a good companion to Hermana
Allen and serve the ward.
The elders had a baptism and Cristian came. Once Olga got in that
water and he leaned over to me and Hermana rowbury and said "that'll
soon be me right?" And excitedly told us about how he stopped drinking
coffee for a straight week! His dark bags under his eyes were a
beautiful sight #tendermerciesforamissionary

I read a "miracle of a mission" this week and something stuck out to
me that hasn't before.
"For as long as we live we will be bearing testimony of the divinity
of the Church, and of the salvation of the Lord and of the Restoration
of the gospel and of God’s love for His children. Until I cannot move
my lips one more time, that is what we will do."

 It made me feel really excited that for the rest of my life I can
keep strengthening my testimony of the Savior and the restoration of
the this gospel and hope that nothing will ever stop me from sharing
that testimony with others and that it'll help me in time of need.
And it made me feel really excited that I'll never ever stop living
this gospel and I'm so grateful for the covenants I could make in the
temple , I know that it'll bless me for the rest of my life and my
Until I cannot move my lips one more time either on this mission or
not as a missionary that is what I will do.

Like Paul , I will fight a good fight,  I will finish my course, I
will keep the faith

I was able to do what my parents have trained me to do my whole life! I translated the whole first hour of sacrament for our ward conference for the stake people who didn't speak Spanish. It was awesome! 

Hermana Chabert! 
Everyone thinks we are twins. Even our mission president get us mixed up

We just happen to walk by the most sketchiest parts of our area this week.#wheninchicago #mycheeks

it was in front of our apartment #weirdfunfact
