From the Other Side of the Planet.... Sister Hannah Avery

Written by Sister Hannah Avery, serving in the Chile Vina del Mar Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, speaking Spanish.

Hey y'all! :)

We had another GREAT week this week! Lots of work... HARD work! We had tons of lessons, and had FIVE people come to church yesterday! WOOHOO! It was a family of four who we are hoping to schedule for baptisms this week or next week, and N**, who is 86 years old! She is the cutest lady ever! :) Anyways, we are really excited, because we think that they will be baptized soon! Hoorah for Israel! :)

We also had our training for the "new leaders in the mission" this week. That was....interesting, starting out! We hopped on a bus on the way to ViƱa del Mar where the mission home is, and were smashed in a little school bus like sardines! There were seriously like 70 people on that thing! Oh my goodness, I got off needing an inhaler and new clothes! We were sooo hot and sweaty, and RAN to get to the mission president's house on time! They were ALL there waiting for us, and the mission president said, "Hermana Avery, did you get lost and forget where my house was?" Ummm.... yes! haha! That, and the bus was crazy! Anyways, he got a good laugh out of it, and the meeting went really well :)

Other than that, we did receive exciting news this week that Elder Lynn G. Robbins is visiting our mission on June 10th! WOOHOO! That will be awesome! :) We are all excited to meet together as a mission and hear him talk! :)

Well guys, that is all the news I have for this week! My foot is MUCH better this week. Thanks to a priesthood blessing, and lots of faith and prayer, my tendonitis is GONE! WOOHOO! That stuff is painful. But it can't stop me from doing the Lord's work :)

Have a great week guys! Talk to you all next week! I love you and miss you so much! :)
