Hey everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas and great birthdays! Happy birthday Sam Madsen, David Christensen (speaking of which… WRITE ME!) and Monica Caicedo (my mom in the mission!)! Hope everything was great and if you need anything let me know!
So you guys first! I had so much fun Skyping you guys! I hope you guys did too! I loved seeing your smiling faces and making jokes just like old times! Hope you guys had fun too! Good job you guys with your concerts! So proud of you guys! Sorry dad that you got in trouble for filming! And mom, I will wear my Christmas pajamas on New Year’s Eve, because that’ll be when I get them ha-ha and Dropbox should be working I hope….. I think I invited you! I hope ha-ha. Piano guys sounded awesome! Can we please go someday? That just sounds so awesome ha-ha. Well… That’s kind of it in your email, hope you guys are doing great!
So to my week of miracles! So last Tuesday was cute Brickman’s baptism! Super cute kid! It was for the ward, but we planned it and everything which was super stressful, but it worked out, he got baptized, and is so happy now! Wednesday was my favorite miracle (besides Skyping you guys) so we’ll come back to that one! Yesterday it rained so bad, it flooded! AGAIN! So everything of mine is soaked, but whatevs! It also hailed really hard yesterday, it felt like God and the angels were having a pellet gun war over our heads! We kept saying that they were enjoying their new Christmas gifts! We also kept saying prayers for safety, because we were hiking up high where there was lightening! And we were safe! And yesterday my planner fell out of my pocket… in the rain… and I didn’t know. By the time I found out, we were far from where it fell out. I was so afraid it got washed away (for all you missionaries now or in the past… you know how much your planner means to you ha-ha) and I was so worried! So we said a prayer and hiked back up to where we were. And it wasn’t there. I was like “no… tomorrow is changes, my comp is probably leaving and I have nothing… oh my gosh…” and then this random lady came out and said “.. What are you looking for?” and I told her everything and guess what. She randomly whipped my planner out of nowhere and said “Is this it?” and I tried to give her a huge hug, but I was soaked and she was freaked out. We tried to see if it was ok if missionaries visited her but she said no. But that was such a huge miracle to me! So HAPPY! Prayers work! Speaking of which… time for my favorite miracle…. So as everyone now know I have been praying and dancing for snow (speaking of which.. everyone here wants to know how much Native American I am because of what happened ha-ha so if you know, let me know!) and it’s summer here. But I had faith. So for the first few days of last week, it was hot during the day and raining in the night. Snow was not looking promising. I go to bed Tuesday night to rain and wake up… TO SNOW! I am so serious! People were able to make tiny snowmen! It wasn’t hail (which is normal here) but SNOW! Like snow at home! Everyone was amazed! Pretty sure they’ll talk about the Hermana that prayed for snow for Christmas and got it for a bit! Kidding but I was so amazed! SO HAPPY!
So before I go, I haven’t gotten some letter, if I don’t get them soon I will write you guys,. Also tomorrow is changes! And my comp. and I have changes! She’s going to Abancay and I’m getting Hermana Tui’One (A gringa!) who I knew in Cusco! Just don’t forget that the Christmas season isn’t just for Christmas, it’s for all year! Don’t forget what Christ did for you this year and for all the love he has for you! LOVE YOU ALL SO MUCH! Talk to you all next year! 🙂
