Update April 27, 2015

Hola everyone!

Me on P-Day

With a ward member, Luly.  She's a ward missionary!

This week was a pretty good week. We went to the temple and worked there from Monday until Wednesday. They´re pretty long days really but I´ve seen so many people come out of the temple tour to talk to us missionaries in the last room and there was one family that I don´t think I´ll ever forget about. They came up to me and asked me how they could be sealed together as a family, that they wanted that. And I said the first step is baptism and they were super interested, said they came through the temple because they saw it on the internet and got curious and wanted to experience it them for themselves. This all was such a confirmation that this church is sp true, and that God really knows his children! He knows what they all need. The first 2 nights we stayed with one of the assistants investigators and they speak English pero mal! They were born in Argentina and the grandma is from England. They were so awesome. Such a sweet family. And then the last night we went and traveled back to our area instead of staying at a hotel because we had appointments lined up for Thursday and we couldn´t miss them. 

So, when we got home from the temple a cold hit me pretty bad! There was a cold going around all the missionaries and I caught it, so I was home a lot of the days with that and a fever, but I´m mostly all okay now :) Not a lot of updates on the week because that´s kinda what we did there! 

When i got sick this week my district made me this sign and brought me some facturas

But I am so excited to skype you for mother´s day!! It´s coming so fast!! It´s so weird to think that this is all coming to an end, the mission, everything! It really does go by so dang fast! 
Mitch is going to prom?? Atta boy!! I´m glad he doesn´t have a date. Girls are stupid anyways! Wait until college :)

I think Kait is going to have a boy!! I´m so excited to be an aunt!! I´ll come home like 2 months after baby Beck comes! :) 
Ah and I still talk to connor every week! We´re still friends :) He is way excited to get married! That dog>!! 

I love you all so much, I hope you have the best week ever and I´ll be talking to you all in a few short week!!!!

Update Week of April 20th

Hello family!!

So, I will update you on my health firstly. So, my stomach problem has gotten a lot a lot better,. And I´m not just eating jello and rice anymore, I have been adding things in and this week when I was working at the temple I saw Hermana Alliaud and she told me I have to start eating more things, that I can eat everything except fried things, junk food kinda things. So this week I´ve been eating fruits, protein, yogurt, all that stuff and I havent had any problems at all, and I haven´t had problems with my stomach, it doesn´t bother me at all. I went to the doctor on Tuesday to get things checked out and then yesterday morning I went and they took some of my blood and they´re going to check it out to see if everything is okay, and tomorrow they should be sending me an email with the results. So when I get them, I will let you know how they go, they should be coming through email. If they dont come this week, they will be here next Friday. But I really feel like Heavenly Father is blessing me right now. It´s really a miracle that I´ve been able to feel so much better and I haven´t had to take that medicine. I knew that not taking that stuff would be a good idea. But really really, I am doing so so much better. I feel a lot better, I have a cold right now, but really apart from that I´m doing well. I know that it´s hard being over there in the states and me being here in Argentina and me having these problems, and I know probably as parents it´s not fun to hear these things. And I´m sorry I always say I´m okay and sometimes I´m not feeling well, I just don´t want to worry you guys. I think I just have faith that everything is going to be okay. I think it´s probably hard for you guys because you get one update a week, and it´s either good news or bad news and you can´t ask questions that you need to quickly. But I want you to know that I feel a lot better. I´m okay, I promise. But I will keep you notified. Ask me instead of hermana Alliaud though, I will answer the questions you have. I´m sorry for putting you guys through this stress, I love you guys so much, and this is the last thing I wanted to put you all through. 
So, mom I hope you had the best birthday EVER!! I´m glad that the email went through to you, I wanted to send you something on your special day!! :) I´m glad the Vazquez family did too :) They´re amazing. Hermana Vazquez always washes our clothes and always invites us to her house, so she´s way awesome! You are beautiful seriously. Happy birthday :) :) I still want to try to send you the recording i made for you, but I don´t have my recorder with me right now, but I will try it on Monday :) 

So the temple this week was AMAZING! We worked a lot, 3 days straight for 12 hours straight! Let´s just say that my companion and I are beat! And also really excited to be back in Jesus Maria :)i e had transfers this week, and I´ll be staying with my companion fir 6 more weeks!! I´ll finish up her training :) I love her seriously, she is such a sincere, kind hearted person and she´s a great leader. Her potential is really really high, and I feel honored that God trusted me with her. Her spanish is also coming along really really well. People that meet her are always impressed that she´s only been out here for 6 weeks. GO HERMANA WILSON! 

Our investigators are doing well, Alejandra, Rut, ELena, and Joel didn´t make it this week to church, but we´re really hoping that they´ll be able to make it tto church this Sunday. They just need to go already!! They´ll love it! 
This week I was able to see Hermana Morris and Hermana Woolley! They are both going to be trainers, they are way excited :) :) I´m also really excited for them, they´ll be great :) Dang Mitch is going ot be on his mission really soon, the time comes very quickly!! 
But, I´m going to end this so I can send some pictures to you guys, again, I´m sorry for worrying you all back there. I´m being honest when I say rhat I have improved so so much. It´s really miraculous. I love you all and daddy, I hope you feel better. Keep on keepin on familia :)

Update from Hermana Romeril 4-18-2015

Chillin' in the collective

Me and my compi!

I love her!
Hello family!! :) I hope all is going well up there in H TOWN!! We had to write home a little bit later tonight because we were in Córdoba all day receiving some instructions because all of the Hermanas are going to work at the temple Open House!! And guess what?!? President Uchtdorf is going to be coming up for the dedication on May 17 and we´ll be able to meet him!! I`m so pumped up excited!! 
This week was, well, way interesting. We had the Sister Training Leaders come visit us on Tuesday but I had to stay inside all day with one of them because we had to go to the doctor and stuff and figure out what’s wrong with my stomach. We went to just a public hospital here and we went to a doctor and asked what´s been going on and I told him like barely anything when he cut me off and was like, you know´s because you´re stressed out. So your body is reacting this way. So he gave me 2 different pills to take and then after we went and bought them but I got home and the Hermanas left and I really didn´t feel good about taking these pills. At all. So I haven´t taken any of them yet. But the Elders did give me a blessing. And I talked to Hermana Alliaud and my companion and we decided that there´s not really a way it could be just from stress. But this week I think I´m going to go to the doctor in Cordoba... I´m still eating only rice and jello everyday. I think my immune system is just really sucky right now too, I had a fever on Saturday and Sunday. But it´s gone now, I spent a lot of the week in the house. I felt kinda discouraged, because all of this keeps being a problem. But yeah, I know I just need to trust in God, let Him know I´m here to do whatever he needs me to do. 
When we could leave the house this week, we started teaching a really amazing family. 2 families. One of the families have like 8 in their family, but we´ve only gotten to know 3 of them. They said they feel really good when we´re there in their house teaching and talking about the gospel. We´ve taught Rut, Ruth in english, Alejandra, and Elena. Elena is Alejandra´s grandma and Rut is Alejandra´s daughter. So we have another appointment with them this week, and we´re pretty excited for them. The other family we´re teaching is Serafina and Jorge. Serafina is Jorge´s mom. She´s an old abuelita I think she´s like 87 years old. Jorge is probably 47 years old and he´s blind. But we´ve been teaching them and seriously they are so amazing. The elders gave Jorge a blessing this week and it was really cool to see how comforted Jorge was. He has some health problems and after he got his blessing he told us he felt different and felt good, happy. And even before we could invite Jorge and Serafina to come to church this week, they committed themselves to go to church! Told us that they wanted to come. And then they gave us a referral to go visit this lady that was sick so we could say a prayer for her and teach her. We went and visited her and she received us immediately and we talked to her and the Elders are going to go give her a blessing too when we have our appointment this week on Wednesday I think it is. The priesthood is so awesome can I just tell you all? I´m so grateful that Mitchell and Dad have it. Seriously man. But also, when we were on companionship exchanges with the sister training leaders, my companion went and visited Cristina Lucero, who was going to be baptized on April 4th but couldn´t because she had to miss church because she was going to be in Córdoba. And Crisitna told my companion that she´s been thinking she needs to make some kind of change in her life, and she said that she feels like this gospel is really what she´s needing right now, and that she feels ready to progress. So that was really relieving. We thought we lost Cristina. But no, I think she could be ready to be baptized! The Elders also had an investigator, Marina, in the church this week! She´s so cute! She´s pregnant and she was talking to me for a little bit and she told me how she was catholic but she´s not catholic anymore, she wants to be baptized and keep coming to church. So that was really awesome to hear that. 
Yesterday we had a different kind of district meeting. Oh we always have our district meetings here on Sundays. So we went and Elder Koboldt decided we were going to talk about how we are going to find new investigators. We started doing practices, and Elder Barrett had the idea of calling a bunch of investigators that they had in their phone who were from both the elders´ area and ours. So we called them and I talked to this guy and he said, What are you going to invite me to do? What´s in it for me? What do I have to do? And I said, we invite you to be baptized by someone who has the authority of God, and he said, okay! I´ll do that. We were all like, BUENO! He lives in the Elders´ area so they´ll be going to visit them this week :) 
But yeah, this week was really good all in all. I guess you just gotta look at the good things that happen in everything. Thank you for sending the SD card seriously!! And about the pictures I Can actually go ahead and print them, I found a good way to do it, thank you so much for sending them all to me, they are exactly what I needed!!! :) You´re the best in the west!! ;)
Mitch, you´re awesome I love you man. I miss you and I miss talking to you! Ya vamos a poder hacerlo en solo 7 meses :)
Hey and I think my exact return date is November 15 so it´s coming up!! Thank you for al your support you guys, I am so grateful for each of you, I can feel your love even out here in Argentina, Never forget how much I love you all. Thank you for everything and I hope yáll have an amazing week :)
