Week 41-“Work yourself out of a job.”

Hola!

This week was good. We got some great stuff done in the branch and the members have responded great with tons of help. I’m thankful for the members who are so willing to help. It makes it a lot easier.

This week was the last week of the transfer. My comp and I are going to stay together! I’m super excited to have another transfer here and do the things I didn’t do last transfer. I felt so much peace and excitement to be a missionary last night and I’m excited to work even more this transfer. It’s a good opportunity that I’m going to try to take advantage of. So Santiago is becoming my home. By the end of this transfer I will have been here for 6 months and I never imagined that I would have been here that long. I know that there is more left for me to do.

President Clayton was writing me a letter with tips and advice to help me in this new calling as branch president. He ended with a quote that his mission president told him when he was called to be a branch president. “Work yourself out of a job.” I loved that quote and I think it’s something we can all use in all situations of life. Imma slap it up on my wall when I get home.

This Sunday was a good one and I’m glad its over to be honest haha. I had to organize the whole thing during the week and then two of my speakers finished with about 45 minutes left and I only had one speaker left. I started to think hmmm lets have this district counselor speak, then we will sing a fat intermediate hymn and then my last speaker will get the job done cause she’s just awesome. It turned out all great. We finished a little after the hour and it was great. I would say the whole thing was a success but it just so happened that our first speaker just yelled in the microphone for 4  minutes and forgot to end in the name of Jesus Christ. It was incredible.

We had very few lessons this week with so much stuff going on. It’s just barely hitting me that we really didn’t get to help our investigators this week so we will have to get all over that this week.

Well I’m doing great. I know that our Heavenly Father supports us in our trials. I know that his son Jesus Christ walks with us through the hardest of times and that he even carries us when we just cant do it by ourselves. I’m so thankful for how much I’m learning out here on my mission. I can see that it is shaping so much and I’m happy to have this experience. I love you all and I hope you have a great week!.

andale pues que les vaya bien.
