Lots of love,
Transfers did indeed happen this week, but I didn`t go too far! Just a hop skip and a taxi-ride away (still in the same stake and everything!) from Bosques is my new area: Olivos! I`m here with Hermana Saylor, who actually just finished being trained by my trainer, and even though we are both REALLY white, we`re going to find miracles here in Olivos. Just a little background info: Bosques is a solid middle-upper-class neighborhood, and Olivos is what you might call the ghetto. I have noticed that a lot more people randomly call our "Gueras!" ("White Girls!") when we`re walking down the street here... So it`s going to be an interesting adjustment :)
In other news, Presidente Anaya and his inspired ability to do exactly what nobody is expecting have struck again! He left Hermana Bracamonte in Bosques in a trio with two Latina sisters from the Visitor`s center, and one of them is just fresh out of the MTC and being trained by the other. So Hermana Bracamonte`s an "Aunt" or something, and I`m like a great-aunt now.
On a different note, just so you all know,is a world-wide missionary braodcast (just for the missionaries I believe), which will be AWESOME. Also, I was thinking about how important it is to read the Liahona or the Ensign each month. That wasn`t something I did a lot before I came on the mission, and I kind-of thought modern-revelation only came twice a year during general conference, but that is NOT true. Prophets speak to us each month through the talks and messages in the church magazines, so I invite you all to look up the January Ensign and take a peak at what the Lord has offered us!
I love you all and hope you know you`re in my thoughts and prayers!
