Week 49 (April 13, 2015)

Yeah wow well this week nothing really new happened...we worked hard we walked alot....I'm just trying to find something that will just push me a little farther. I know that i can still do more. I can still work harder. i can achieve more. 
 We are finding new people to teach but we really need to find someone who really is going to progress. We are teaching one named Gustavo. He is the one that wrote me the message about my Spanish and how I'm beautiful. He is reading the scriptures and i really hope that he can come to church this week. he coulñdnt come this week because yesterday was eleccions here. I know who has eleccions on a Sunday...well all of Latin America. But i have faith that he will come next week. 
Things are going good with my companion. I really didn't know how hard it would be to live with all Latinas. especially when 2 are from the same place and have friends in common. So they are always talking about things that only they know...but whatever sometimes you just got to nod your head and act like you know what they are talking about:) 
How was the bday party.. no i didn't forget.!!!!
oh this week i bought a super cool card set of transformers!! ya super sick!!
I want you all to know how much i love you and miss you all... paz y bendiciones
Con mucho amor!!

Week 42 ( February 23, 2015)

Hola mi familia; so today we had transfers. I am now in Salta. My area is called guemes. My companion is from peru. I can't remember how to spell her name so I will tell you next week.  She has 3 months in the mission. She is from the same group as hna Saenz.  So she just finished her training . I haven't seen alot of my area but it seems great. I have heard alot of good things. Also I heard the bishop is great too and he lives next door to us. My bus left at 2 this morning so I haven't slept alot. But its ok I know God will give me the energy I need to get through this day. So I have been traveling all day so there isn't alot to tell. Oh this week we found a great faimily that lives close to the church. The familia Coronel. The are so sweet. I know one day the will get baptized.
well I'm excited to work here and I know that we are going to see lots of miracles here.
 I love you all so much!   Hope you all have a good week!

Week 41 (February 16, 2015)

This week I had such a great B-Day. We are working hard and still dying of heat. The other day it rained but its always for just a second so it really doesn't seem like it rains alot. My companion and i are doing better. we are really enjoying our time together. I am really developing Christ attributes. 
So as you can see in my pics. We had alot of sugar this week...nah it wasnt that bad. Jaja
We are trying to find new people to teach and we are still working with the familia casanueva. 
Today we played basketball with one of our investigators and a member it was super fun. This week we had divisiones so i went to another area for a day. it was fun but super hot that day. well here all the days are hot. But at least i am getting a tan . I really am enjoying my mission. I cant believe it is half over.. Sooo crazy. i am continuing to work hard and loving the people i am serving. 
Transfers are in 2 weeks so we will see what will happen. 
I really hope you are all well. 
LOve you all so much!!! 
Con amor...Hermana Franks
