I am training...


Well hey.

Everything sounds like it´s going great back in Utah.  Hahaha thanks for the pictures of my room!  It´s super weird to see carpet!!!!  Gaaah!  With the pictures of my baptism, just one of me in the white jumpsuit would be good.  Yeah email it.

Well lemme tell ya a story.  Monday night during planning we get a phonecall from the zone leaders to tell us about cambios.  And Elder Castillo tells me, ¨hermana, you´re going to train.´¨  Uhhhhh WHAT???????????????  I was flipping.  Panic attack to the extreme.  Yeah, so all day Tuesday I was in the same training that I was in six weeks prior.  Yeah.  So I´m a trainer.  Ha!!  It´s kind of a joke.  The first couple days were suuuper rough.  Well yeah, it´s still super rough.  We get lost all the time and I basically have no idea what in the world I´m doing.  But Hermana Perez is still here and helps us a ton so that´s a huge blessing.  My companion is Hermana Rubina from Chile.  She´s great and has a lot of confidence in talking to people.  But she´s 22 so sometimes she has a difficult time accepting corrections from a 19 year old gringa.  But we´re working super hard and have tons of great investigators so it´s great.  But I´m super stressed all the time.  There´s a million things I have to remember and I´m just overwhelmed with it all.  It´s hard to recognize why the Lord would call me to be a trainer this early.  I´m the only one in my group who´s training right now and there are plenty of other sisters who could be training my companion right now.  But I´m really trying to have confidenc in myself because the Lord has confidence in me.  Obviously I´m struggling....

Vicente got baptized!!  It was super super happy!  Super crazy stressful!  Hahaha when we got to the chapel, one of the members was in the font with the water up to his knees and Manuel loading buckets of water from the well...  For some reason the stop to the drain wasn´t working so all the water was draining.  So we had to figure out how to stop it and we ended up with a tile from outside on top of the drain.  So yeah it was quite the experience.  But he was baptized and confirmed so that´s all that matters!  We saw him Sunday outside of his house and it was so amazing to see the light that he had in his countenance!  Ohhh I am oh so so happy for him!

When is the baby due?????????   I better get pictures!!!!!!

Dallin-- I don´t see too many different types of bananas.  Just the yellow kind.  But I eat like 5 a day.  And they have lots of plantains.  I think in a different sector they have more types.  But that´s exciting you´re finally done with Crescent!!!!  That place is awful.  What are you doing to do this summer?  I like all of the random things you tell me so keep writing me!

Cameron-- Thanks for the email!  San Fran sounds like it was fun.  Are you really going to have an interview with facebook?  That would be way sweet.  Keep me updated on your life.

Happy birthday to Nicole on the 8th!!!!!

When is Fathers day?  Happy Fathers day to Daddy and the grandpas and now Brenden!  Weird.

A lady in the ward does our laundry for like 4 or 5 bucks each week.  But I think she just washes everything together because my whites aren´t looking too white... Haha it´s fine.

Thank you to everyone who writes me!!  Sorry I never have time to write back.  We only have 30 minutes so it´s crazy trying to write everything.  But I really do appreciate all of the love!

Well I´m out of time.  Things are just great here.  Ya know, just training.  I have a daughter to teach so ya know.  It´s great.  It´s been an absolutely crazy experience but I know that this is the work of the Lord so I´m just goin for it.  The church is still true.

I love you all!!!!

Hermana Bytheway
