Week 61

This first week as an assistant has been crazy. We took all of the missionaries who finished their missions to the airport and, just after that, 27 new missionaries arrived and we were able to welcome them. We took them around the office for the day and helped them get everything ready and the following day they met their new companions. My new companions are Elder Anderson, from Utah, and Elder Paris, from Chile. I participated in my first conference as an assistant. It was a fun experience. I still really don´t have any idea what I´m doing, but I´m sure that the Lord is there to help me in every moment, as long as I trust in him and do all that I can. We went to the Andes today. It was absolutely beautiful. It is incredible what the Lord has created. I am so grateful for all that He has done and continues to do.

Week 57

Hey, everyone! I haven´t had much time, but things are going great here in Victoria! We had a baptism this past weekend. Alejandra Vásquez Vásquez se bautizó! She has had a lot of difficulties with her husband, but she still came through! She´s a great example for me. It´s been amazing to see how we experience so many difficulties when we come closer to God. I know that we need to experience challenges to progress and that we can have a solid foundation to overcome all things if we trust in the atonement of Christ. If we put that first, nothing can shake us.
