Hermana Hansel y Hermana Gretel.

Hayley wasn't able to send photos this week, so I found one that someone in Chile had recently posted on Facebook (even though it looks like it's from June, it's new to me :))
Hellooooo family!!
So this week was also a little uneventful, because now... my companion has a random infection in her gum! Literally there's like a little ball in her gums above her teeth, I feel so bad!! But because of that, we have to go to Viña a lot to take care of it. BUT we are still seeing miracles, don't even worry about it!! And we also made this decision to be obedient but 100 percent, like to the minute and the suggestions in Preach My Gospel, and it made such a big difference! Seriously, the key to happiness and joy is obedience. We had about the same numbers this week as last week, but I was infinitely happier this week, just because I was being a bit more obedient! In the scripture guide in Spanish, the synonyms for joy are obedience and obey and obedient. I am so grateful that I'm learning this now, and I really know it's going to shape my life. It doesn't matter what my circumstances are, if I am obedient I will be happy.
THATS THAT haha. But C is finally home!!! AHHH!! Honestly I almost cried in church when I saw them. We taught them yesterday and the spirit was SO STRONG. We taught about fasting and C was like yeah lets start RIGHT NOW. So I'm currently fasting with him, Hermana Page, Carmen, and Hermana Barros! We got the assistants to call her so she could fast with us!! I know he's going to get his answer and get baptized SOON. Honestly I love him and Carmen so much!!! Also Y, R, and S are progressing a lot - a family we're working with!! They are so awesome. They are really catholic, but they are progressing little by little every day! The mom at first wanted nothing, but last time she literally said: "have patience with me, it's just hard changing religion!" AHHH. I know that a lot of miracles are coming our way. It makes me so happy!! :)
Fun things: One, the buses here race each other sometimes, and it's good for us because we get there faster, but the buses are already really fast so it's HORRIFYING. But it's also awesome - haha. Also, here all the Chileans when I say "Hansen" are like oohhhh like Hansel and Gretel! And I'm always just like yeahhhh....ALMOST haha. But the other day, an investigator was praying, and she said "gracias por la hermana hansel y gretel...." So looks like Hermana Page and I are Hansel and Gretel hahaha.

There are cambios on Wednesday but I'm about 90 percent sure that Hermana Page and I are staying together. We had to do intercambios with some poor hermanas that are having a rough time that they don't deserve AT ALL. Honestly, I am just so glad to have the gospel in my life. I talked to Hermana Page, I'm in my halfway through the mission midlife crisis where I know how to do the things and how to speak Spanish, but now I just need to become the person God wants me to be. Let's see how it goes!! haha 
Anyways, love you guys so much! Love the mission more than anything, and I am HAPPY, don't worry about me ever! (mom...:))

Hermana Hansen
