 Hma guttierrez has been with us this past week! she is now back in potosi... ( the COLDEST area of the mission ) and doing MUCH better in her health. she has typhoid, thats why they brought her back to cochabamba, to be able to go to the dr. (there arent many good doctors in potosi) and improve her health... anyway! its been great to have my two ´kids´ here with me! ;)

Hey mom!
What a week! We have been full of all kinds of craziness! and i have been with my two ¨kids¨ at the same time! This week we will be going to the temple, first with the mission, and then with ARIANA! ;) She is so very excited to be part of such a great work... when we explained her what it was to do baptisms for the dead... she absolutely loved it! Her father passed away when she was ten years old... and has such a great desire to do his work for him! hmmm.... what else! We are doing great! Lots of work, lots of people with baptism dates... and lots of new people to teach... The transfers are coming up this sunday! I feel like it is very likely i will be sent out of cochabamba... it is not really that normal for a missionary to stay in the same city so much time... i am glad you enjoyed the poems! I have been trying to write more lately... random thoughts, and poems, and LETTERS! With the transfers coming up, i have got to write a number of letters for all the people here! i have also been taking pics with all the members! this week is going to be CRAZY now that i think about it... we will be going to the temple twice, there will be a special activity in the ward for Bolivia day or something like that, i have to start getting ready for the transfers... and its just all going to be crazy! ;) but i am so excited for so many great things! i am healthy, and they found out that the typhoid was coming from these gigantic bottles of water, you know those blue ones you often see in offices with white little cups? There is a brand of water here that is contaminated with typhoid... we, with much blessings, never baught that water! Sounds like life is going nuts up there too! ;) I love you lots mom! so very very much! Oh! and we made pizza yesterday! SO yummy! my comp has been dying for some pizza down here! ahaha! i have to say, this transfer is killing me a bit. i dont really want to leave this area... but i feel deep down with in me, that i have truly done my part here. if God takes me out of this area, if he has other plans for me, it will hurt me to leave the people i love so much. But i will leave this area with not one regret. They say that we must leave it all out on the streets of bolivia... so that when the day is done, we will know we gave it our all. that is how i feel in the floresta. i will have no regrets here. I love this area so much. i feel as though my heart has been stretched to the bursting point to cover two nations.. two different countries, cultures, and families! I hope you have a great week mom! love you lots !
