Staying in Santiago‏

Family and Friends, 

This week has been another great one. This week I could feel the excitement of the missionary work grow, and our faith. We have worked on finding new people, trying to get creative my whole time here. When you're in that stage for a few weeks and nothing new comes it can be hard. This week all 4 of us here in Santiago had many ideas, our Spirits and faith were a lot increased, and although I can't say we all have new people, we can feel it coming. There's been a lot more excitement, energy, willingness to really share the gospel with everyone. 

Hermana Iregui and I did have a good lesson with Antón. He read a lot in the Book of Mormon and we basically discussed his questions about that, what he'd learned, how he feels, etc. We taught something completely different than what was planned and I felt the Spirit there guiding us. 
We had district conference (like stake conference but for the branches) yesterday. Elder Adler from the Seventy was here along with President Pack(mission president) and his wife. It was a great meeting and reminder of the importance of the 'little things'- daily scripture study and prayer, building our own personal testimonies, going to the temple, loving your neighbor, etc. 

This transfer was a short one so we already had transfers today. Hermana Iregui left to Guadalajara, Madrid. My new companion is Hermana Hill. She's from Missouri and great. We have served in the same district previously and finish the mission at the same time. I'm going to miss Hermana Iregui but am also excited for this transfer. 

I hope you all have a great week! Love you!

Bye to Hermana Iregui
We went to the "end of the world" today.  A long time ago people thought the earth ended here, no more land. Pioneers also burn their shoes here after their long journey there.  There's probably a lot more history about it that I don't know.  It was FREEZING.  Super windy and cold, but really pretty.
