New area, new companion and claustrophobia!

Hola!!! Bueno, so I´ve been transferred for what will probably be my very last time (quien sabe) to Ituzaingo 4 in the zone of Castelar!!! It´s the area right next to Ituzaingo 3, where I served at the beginning of my mish for a week and a half. I´m the zone Sister Training Leader now, and I´m serving with Hermana Kent (everyone here calls her Superman)!!! She´s wonderful!!! She served in the zone of Caseros with me just a transfer ago. We live in a nice apartment complex building thing, and we have a tiny elevator (clausterphobia) up to the 3rd level. The apartment is really nice!! One of the nicest I´ve had, since Chivilcoy at least. It even has a cute little balcony. No shortage of cockroaches though, so that´s fun. We´ve resorted to killing them with furniture polish. But AT LEAST the shower works! That´s a first. 

Sister Training Leader (HLE) again!

Before I got here the map was this. ^

After! I like to make things pretty. :)

There was a baptism on Saturday!! A cute 8 year old girl. She´s a sweetheart!! She was confirmed yesterday, and we´re working with her family to try to get her parents baptized!! We´re excited to see miracles this transfer:)

 Saturday Baptism!

I spoke in Sacrament yesterday about missionary work, and the importance of the members participating in it. It´s SO important that they help out!! Rather it be lunches, referrals, going to visits with them, ANYTHING, anything helps out!! I wish I had been a better member missionary before my mission. Now I know what type of person I want to be when I get back home! The work goes forth so much more powerfully with the members supporting the missionaries. Every member a missionary. It´s so true. The Lord really is hastening His work, and now´s the time to become involved in it. I´m so happy to be a part of this church. There´s no doubt in my mind that it´s true.

I love you all!!

Con amor,

Transfers and pictures!

Hi everyone!!! This week was WONDERFUL!!! (despite the death heat) We were able to end the week teaching 26 lessions and we found 9 wonderful new investigators!!! All of them seem genuinely interested to learn more about the gospel!! Our recent convert is REMARKABLE!! She studies the scriptures and other gospel books everyday for at least 2 hours!!! I didn´t even ever do that until my mission hahaha. She loves the gospel and has such a strong testimony!! She´s preparing to enter the temple, once they fix the electricity problem. We´re so excited for her!! 

 Saying goodbye to ward members!

 Zone conference!

Cute companion Hermana Frogget/ Merida!

We have transfers this week, and I´m being transfered!! It´s crazy how much can happen in the space of 3 transfers. I´ve been here in Hurlingham ever since the beginning of November. I´m going to miss the people here so so much, including mi hijita, Hermana Frogget/Merida from Brave. She was an amazing companion!! I´m ready for a new adventure!! 

I´ll let you all know!!:)

Con amor,
Hermana Edwards
