This week has definitely had its ups and downs but I can say with all of my heart that I love being a missionary. Its the best feeling EVER! Ive had so many amazing experiences this week...truly amazing experiences. My Heavenly Father testifies of his mercy and love every single day through little miracles.

The language is coming. Hahaha. I have my great days and then my not so great days. BUT this is kinda cool. Ive had many many people, all native Chileans, tell me that theyre impressed with my Spanish and that theyre surprised that Ive only been in Chile for 8 weeks! They say I dont sound like a GRINGA AT ALL. Best thing Ive ever heard in my life. Keep praying that the language will keep coming!
