Scripture

2 Nephi 31:20

Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.

Temple with Maxi

Hey Hey Hey!
This week was full of so many things! During the week we had our zone conference and it was booger freezing but we had an activity outside at then park so that was fun. To get back to the area where we were it took like 4 hours to travel, so we slept at the apartment of other sisters. lol. It was a party because we were 6 sister missionaries. Lol. We found an amazing family, they have 6 kids and are going through some trials right now so it was awesome that we could find them. And the best thing ever that happened is I was able to go to the temple with Maxi, my convert so he can receive his endowments! He was so happy and it was such a beautiful experience. Maxi will be a great missionary I know it. The week flew by so fast and I know these last few weeks will be even faster. I love you all!

Spiritual Week

8/7/17
Milagros!
This week we were with Hermana Ortiz and Hermana Moreta one of my ex companions!
I loved this week so much because it was so spiritual. We found a family! The Asmar family, their an old couple and live with their grandson which is 19 years old. The 19 year old Leonel accepted to be baptized and came to church on Sunday! Also, we found a woman named Irma! She’s so sweet and loving. Not that religious, lives alone with her parrot that talks and just is the cutest old lady. And she came to church also. I love it when people are looking for the truth and just act upon their own will and do it because they want to. And lastly, Celina, A little old lady that was super sad outside of her house. She told us that her husband committed suicide and someone killed her two younger sons. We tried to teach her but she was so sad and has been through so much that every time we spoke shed remember something from her past. All we could do is just hug her and tell her everything well be okay and that shell see her loved ones again. I love being a missionary because the people that don’t have this gospel in their lives are so lost and sad. But the thing is that life isn’t supposed to be that way. Were supposed to be filled with joy as we are suffering because were helping someone else on the way! I love the gospel and to be here in Argentina. Have a great week everyone! My companion and I are going to a place where the cows go moo and where there are pure fields of grass! Haha. 
Love you!

Hermana Davis

Great things happening

7/31/17
Hola amigos y familia!
So many great things happened this week. This week we were with Hermana Molinero and Hermana Barlow in Banfield 4. There’s a lot of drama that has been going on, but in all the drama, I’m learning so much on how to help others when there is chaos happening. I think at times we don’t take time to think about situations and we just react really quick but the best thing to do is just stop and think. And that’s something that I learned this week. 
I was able to be with one of the new sister missionaries on her first day tracting because her trainer had a meeting. And it was such a great experience because I could see her progress in just one day. One of the hardest things for the new missionaries to overcome is being scared to talk to people. And she wasn’t scared at all. It was awesome. 
And the other great news that happened this week, is that my convert Maxi Benitez that is preparing for a mission got his mission call and he’s going to Mendoza Argentina! Yay! I’m so excited for him and I love seeing his progress and the best part is that he’s enters into the MTC Sept. 7th, right when I end my mission and he’ll be receiving his endowments my last week in the mission! I’m so blessed to be able to be here for everything. Blessings come when were obedient! 
I love you guys and hope you all have a great week! I’ll send some pictures!
Chau!

Happy Pioneer Day Everyone!

7/24/17
Happy Pioneer Day Everyone!
I hope you all had an awesome week like i did. So we got the call from president and ill be ending my mission as a traveling missionary. I’m excited because I learn so many things from others. Every week is a challenge but fun at the same time because every week is a new situation, the sisters work in many different ways. So we can have less drama and help them as best as we can, we continue how they do things, and tweak some things here and there. Lol. 
It’s crazy how fast time is going. This week flew by, but the weather was perfect. It didn’t rain a single drop this week. But this coming week it’ll be raining about every day! Woohoo! Haha. Well I love you guys so much! Have a great week and try to do something fun with the family! Summer is ending soon! Chau!

Amazing week

07/17/17
Amazing week!
I haven’t learned so much in my life and I think we all needed this experience this week. This week we were with Hermana Mattos and Hermana Hernandez, they were having some trouble working together good and working and visiting people when they have time. Being with them was amazing. We started the week a little interesting because where the sisters are living they’re living with two other sisters so we were six girls in a little itty bitty apartment, with one bathroom and hardly any space for our air mattresses. Haha. But it was super fun because every night we were able to talk about how our day went and just talk. 

The sisters are so amazing and love to learn. This week my companion and I were helping them to do street contacting and literally talk to every single person and when were tired we don’t go home until its night time. So that we can end the day feeling happy and that we gave all we could. This week I also learned about Christs love for his children. I read a story in the liahona that talks about a mother telling her daughter to not touch the hot stove. When the mom left her daughter touched the hot stove and ran and hid when her mom came back. When the mom came looking for her daughter she was thinking why is my daughter hiding and she knew that she was ashamed and sad for being disobedient and thinks that her mom will get mad. The mom thought a little, then found her daughter crying. She didn’t yell nor do anything rude. All she did was heal her burned finger and told her that its important that we elarn from our mistakes. In the talk it then explained that this is how our heavenly father looks at us. At times when we make mistakes and want to run and we are ashamed and don’t want to repent, but all our father in heaven wants to do is heal us and sometimes we don’t permit him. One of the hardest things for me is forgiving myself but when I read this talk, I really then did understand the amount of love our Heavenly Father has for every single one of us. 

Talking with the sisters every week, getting to know every single one of them and their conversion is so beautiful. I know that every person that we get to know or talk to has an impact in our lives. we may not know it or notice it in that exact moment, but that is why it’s important we learn something new every day. So that’s my invitation to you all. To try to notice and take time at the end of your day to meditate and be grateful for the things that you learned and understand now. 
I love you all and hope you have an awesome week. And enjoy the sun because its super cold here¡ Chau¡

16 months in the mission!

07/10/17

16 months in the mission!
I have no idea how time has gone by so fast but I’m absolutely loving it here in Argentina. My companion and I are working a full so that these sisters can have success in their missions. This week we were in Banfield with Hermana Rivarola and Hermana McBride. These sisters are so awesome. Every time we get to their apartments, we set up all our things and then have an inventory of the things they’d like to become better at. And then my companion and I help them with these weaknesses. I love it because I learn so much from them also! 
This week was a very spiritual week for me. I felt Christs love so much in my heart. While waiting for interviews with President, my companion was playing the piano, missionaries were talking, and I was reading the scriptures and the liahona and I just thought that never in my life again, I will have this opportunity to be with so many missionaries. I really felt like I was in the temple and felt like Jesus Christ was right next to me, helping me realize all the blessings that I have. Also this week, I learned about blessings. If we want to receive blessings we first have to be obedient. Teaching a lesson this week to a woman named Camila. She wants help with her studies but God will not give us the blessing if were not prepared to receive it. We have to do our part. So I was thinking, there are so many families with member in the family that are members of the church but they’re not active and how can these families unite and have an eternal family again? By being obedient, having family home evening. I love the concept of family home evening because it really brings another spirit into the home. And so I want to invite all of you guys to have family home evening tonight. Even if its 5 minutes. It won’t hurt and I promise you’ll feel much better and have another spirit in your homes. 
I can’t believe that time is going by so fast. I can’t wait to see you all again. But right now I’m in Argentina. I may not have an area or investigators. But I have Jesus Christ and he’s my best friend ever. Talking with him everyday is so important for our salvation. 
I love you all! Till next week!

This week was great because I was able to return to my first area in the mission and WOW the progress in this ward a year later. And my converts are progressing so much, I’m so proud of them. Melaney is preparing for a mission, and Maxi too, but Maxi is the ward mission leader also. I have so much energy and motivation to complete with his calling its beautiful. I’ll send you all some pictures of how everything went!
