Mission Change! Week 16, (Lontue w/ Hmna Rojas)

Howdy fam!!! 
Zone leader called at 6:45 this morning, ***"Entones, Hermana, que piensa? va a quedar o se va?"  
"De verdad, elder, no tengo idea! Estamos SUPER nerviousas! Solo se que no quiero ir!" 
"Ahhh yah... hmmm... interesante...  Bueno, ...entoces,  quieren saber?"
"Si po!" 
" YA PO! Elder! Diganos ya!!!"   
"Bueno, entonces, Hermana Davis... se va!"
"En serio elder?!!... A donde?!!!"
"Se va a...quedar en Lontué."
 "Ay! Choota, Elder! Me mata!"  
***["Well then, Sister, what do you think?  Are you going to stay where you're at or get moved?"  
"Truthfully, Elder, I have no idea!  But we are SUPER nervous!  I only know that I don't want to go!"
"Ahhh yah... hmmm... interesting...Well, ...then, do you want to know?"
"Well, YES!"
"Are you ready?..........ARE YOU SURE?"
"Come on!  Elder!  Tell us already!!!!"
"Alright then, Sister going!
"Seriously, Elder!?! ...To where?!?"
"You are going to...   ...stay in Lontué." 
"Darn it, Elder!  You're killing me!"]
Same for my comp too, we are both staying in Lontué, which means we are now officially going to be mission Chile Rancagua (with Elder David Archuleta... or David Enchilada, as Trent likes to call him). That also means that we have another 4 week combio [change] instead of 6 weeks. To be honest, I was SOOOOO relieved because I really thought/feared I was going to leave because the Branch President asked me (on Friday) to give a talk in church Sunday, I thought for sure it was going to be my "farewell Lontue" talk lol.  BUT it wasn't!  I've got at least another 4 weeks!  WOOHOO!  And my talk went pretty well!  According to the members I did well, and they claimed they understood everything I said, that it was"clarito" [really clear].  Then after Sacrament meeting I taught gospel principles again, it was awesome!  I was busy busy busy.  I love it!  Its super fun! 
This week has been a fun one!  We found the most amazing investigator last week, sooo soo "escogida" [chosen].  The only problem is that she is going through a series of test and stuff in Curicó and Santiago because she is having problems with her gallbladder, so she is really hard to catch at home.  She never really knows when she is going to have to go and take another test or run to the doctor. ...AND she doesn't have a cell phone because it got wet a month or so ago and she doesn't want to buy a new one and change because she has a plan with the other one. lol   Ohhh the life and challenges of a missionary.  Her name is Elizabeth and she has a daughter that lives with her who's like 5 years old and just the cutest little stink you ever did see.  Her name is Aranza.  Her husband's name is Eduardo but he doesn't really want anything to do with us at this point, but she is such a trooper and she has so much faith that he will come around, it is so sweet!  She wants to get baptized really bad and she LOVES it when we come over, she loves to hear about the gospel and everything,  To her, every little bit of it is "the most beautiful thing she has heard", haha love her!  Saturday she committed to come to church with us but when we passed by to "pick her up", her older son said that she left earlier that morning to take more tests in Curicó.  I try to hope for the best and believe what people say, especially since she is so awesome, but you wouldn't believe how much people lie here!  Children too!  They always answer the door for their parents when they don't want to deal with us and say that they left to go shopping or whatever, when a lot of the time we can see through the curtains that they are there or can hear them in the background.  Most of the time my comp. and I just shake our heads and laugh, but it can be frustrating sometimes. 
Other than that, not much is going on, except that it's FREAKING cold! lol  I bought this cheap fleece sweatshirt in Ropa Europea [a store named European Clothes] today.  Its kind of the coolest sweater I've ever owned, it's kind of ugly but not at the same time! [sorry, not even Dad can translate that].  It's made of that fleece with like this really old fasioned multicolered print, it reminds me of old cabiny & backpacking gear that we have fleece. it´s pretty sweet. [still got nothing]

Big huge thanks to the Loudon family for their letters! It was so sweet of you to take the time to do that for me!   Especially with the new baby (which is gorgeous by the way, nice job aunt kimmy ;))!  hope the family is happy and healthy! Love you all!
