So, this week has been a bit of an adventure. My companion went home on Monday and I had to wait till Thursday to receive my new companion. So I joined Hermana Albach and Hermana Bernal who are in another area in Encarnacion for a couple days. Then Thursday I was supposed to go over to Posadas to get my new companion, but l ended up having passport issues so one of the other sisters had to go get my companion for me and bring her back…so, that was a little tough but it all worked out and my companion, Hermana Merchàn, is super great. Oh, and she`s not from Chile, she`s actually from Ecuador, which is just as cool.
So these last couple of days have been really great. We`ve been working closely with a couple of people, one of them is a 17yr. old and her mom who are super cool. But what`s super cool is that her brother who`s a year younger has been starting to meet with us too, which is awesome because before he was always avoiding us and now he`s getting more and more interested, so we`ll see how it`s going. Other than that, we`ve had a couple days where the work is great and I just love being a missionary, and then their have been other days like Saturday that were a bit harder where we walked around for seven hours in the freezing cold and only met with two people becuase nobody would let us in their houses…but it`s ok, the hard days make the good days so much sweeter. As President Holland said once, we can`t expect missionary work to be easy because it is the work of salvation and it was never easy for Christ, and so we can`t expect it to be easy either.
