June 8, 2015 -Rioooo Gallegossss

What is up fam!!?? Literally can't imagine Reegan and flying alone!! Like where's her companion!!  So crazy! Mexico and Jamaica?!?! That's insane! The best part of that deal is definitely the 24 hour food service!! I would POUND!!

This week hasn't been the shortest week.  It was so weird to leave Puerto Madryn.  That was my first area when I left the office and I made so many goals to just serve and give my whole heart to the people in Madryn.  Well I didn't take into account that one day I was going to leave and I part of my heart would be left there forever. 

A ton of families came to say goodbye when I got on the bus to set out for my next journey.  It didn't hit me until I loaded my bags and I was in my seat looking out the window that I literally gave everything to those people.  I truly tried to lose myself in the work as instructed in Matthew 10:39 and it's crazy how blessed I was because of it.  They truly are part of my family and I reflected so much that long 17 bus ride to Rio Gallegos and I found out a lot about myself.  I truly love to serve. I want to ease other burdens.  I want to put a smile and these peoples faces.  I want to make a difference.  I am so grateful for the opportunity to serve in puerto Madryn.

I have new reponsibilities here in Rio Gallegos and we don't have as much time to work in the area but we have taken advantage of every second.  Elder Caceres is very humble and focused and we are going to do great.  He is from Santiago Chile.  IT'S SO COLD HERE!! the high this week is 40 degrees and it's just bitter to the bones.  But the people are soooo nice!! Almost everyone we talk to in the streets are super nice and want to talk to us.. To get them to go to church is a different story.

I am learning so much about the Plan of God out here.  When asked how we had so much success the only thing I can think is..
     1)You have to love the people and
     2)You have to SHOW them you love them ...by SERVING them!!

God is so merciful and if we trust put our trust in His plan...He will bless our loved ones and us.
I LOVE the mission.  By far the hardest thing I've ever done and I'm not going to miss planning and comp inventories for anything but I will miss being able to SERVE and being a representative of the one who served ALL of us!!

Thank you for everything! I'll try and send a bunch of pics!!
