August 10, 2015

hey everyone!

woah I feel like this week didn't even happen! we have been soo busy and have had something every single day this week! On wednesday we got to go to the temple and had zone conference! Only being able to go to the temple every 3 months makes for 200 realllly excited missionaries when we finally get to go! Also every zone conference Hna Hansen makes us homemade chocolate chip cookies... ah definitely the highlight! 
Thursday was ´´independance day´´ in Bolivia.. hahah its definitely not a 4th of July but the Bolivians are super proud of their country! we had a ward activity all day and each organization was in charge of a department in Bolivia.. the ´´mission work´´ got Santa Cruz. It was super funny because we had to make a poster about Santa Cruz and food from Santa Cruz and have our investigators dance a ´´typical dance´´ from there.. and we obviously know nothing about Santa Cruz hahaha so we basically made everything up and didn't win any prizes but it was a fun day! 
Saturday one of my investigators from Tiquipaya got baptized and I am so lucky to be close enough that I got permission to go! Its so amazing to see how this work progresses and how sometimes people need more than just the short time we are with them to be ready but everyone has their own time and I have really seen that here!
I wanted to share a quote that President Hansen shared with us in zone conference ¨God is not waiting to love you until after you have overcome your weaknesses and bad habits. He loves you today with a full understanding of your struggles.¨ -Pres. Uchtdorf
Heavenly Father truly understands all  of us perfectly and loves us perfectly even with all our imperfections! 
I love you all and am so grateful for all the support! have the best week!
