oh how i missed my scrubs

After spending the last few months working every day in dressed-up missionary attire, it feels incredibly nice to work in SCRUBS again!

Sigh.. I missed the Emergency Room.

Delia! [Madison, WI]

Madison, WI

This weekend I got to see one of my favorite people...

I met Delia when we lived in Ecuador.

We lived in neighboring communities.

2013 Global Citizen Year fellows from the Cloud Forest region (when we visited Otavalo)

This weekend I got to visit her in her hometown of Madison, Wisconsin!

First Week Home from the Mission

This week I came home from my mission.

It's very confusing to be back in Iowa..

84 Years

I keep trying to read my texts aloud to everyone... It confuses them...


And I keep looking around for my companion....

..and then I realize I don't have one anymore..
I miss Hermana Yanez and Bossa and Mocellin and Diaz and WHY AREN'T THEY IN MY LIFE ANYMORE

"Happy Birthday, Elderas"


This week, we lost our trio status :(

Bye Hermana Mocellin... :(

Except Hermana Mocellin only went to the area right next to ours, in the same ward, so we still see her all the time! Woot.

..but, before transfers, we went to a member's house and we celebrated all three of our birthday together! Haha..

this week in hollywood

Twenty minutes to write ~

We have two areas, and we are still crazy busy. Every day is full of appointments and we still struggle to find time for everybody we need to see... the best problem to have as a missionary!

This preparation day was the COOLEST. We went to the mission office, and on the way home we stopped at a really nice salad place that lets missionaries eat for free! we felt so classy. Probably because the place was really classy.


we're best friends

more mission madness: TRIO LIFE (part 2)

(part one)

We had a baptism yesterday! It was a very simple and powerful service, and I am so happy for the persons who got baptized (whose names I can't use on my blog... so that's why it sounds super awkward) ~

It's been a CRAZY week, but our area is now twice as blessed! Overnight we had double the area to work in, double the investigators, double the baptismal dates and double the work. We are a very tired and a very happy trio.

more mission madness: TRIO LIFE

A missionary in our district had to leave the area, so that Sister's companion was added to our companionship.

...along with her entire area...

Three Sisters.
Two Areas.
Lots of Work.

..And Fun :)

Hermanas Mocellin, Yanez & Heron.
