A few new pics :)


Great experiences!!

Hola Familia!!
What an amazing week it has been!!! This week was the last week of the transfer and it went by SO fast! On Tuesday and Wednesday we had our last splits of the transfer! It went really well. I was with sister Garcia and she is from bolivia and actually finished her mission today! She is a really awesome missionary and I had so much fun working with her. On Thursday we had our mission leadership training. It was really good. Sister Aris and I were the only sisters which was a little weird but it was a great meeting! We learned a lot and it was overall a great meeting. This week we did a lot of service here in our area and were able to work with some of the less-active members. But, the weekend was definitley the best part of everything. On Saturday we were able to watch the cultural celebration of the Mexico City temple with some less-active sisters and it was a really cool experience! I really enjoyed it! And then on Sunday the rededication of the Mexico City temple was broadcast here and in all the stake centers in all of mexico. It was such a spiritual experience! I havent ever been in a dedication or rededication of a temple so it was a new experience for me but it was so great. the spirit was so strong and my testimony of temples has truly been strengthened. I didnt get transfered and neither did Sister Aris, yay! So i will be finishing my mission here in Lomas! It is so weird that I am now starting my last transfer, time sure flies! I am looking forward to these next 6 weeks(: I hope that you guys have an amazing week! I love you all SO much!!!(:
Love always,

Just a couple pics :)

Power of Prayer :)

Hola Family!!!(: 
What a week it was! haha this week I was in other areas more than my own haha. On tuesday we had splits with Sister Guzman and Sister Capallan and I was with Sister Guzman in her area! She is a really great missionary and I really enjoyed working with her! On Wednesday afternoon I came back to my area and finished the day here and then on thursday we had our weekly planning and a normal day then Friday it was off to another area with sister Huamani and my companion was in our area with Sister Hernandez! I also really enjoyed working with Sister Huamani, we are so blessed to have really great sisters here in this zone! Then on Saturday we came back to our area and went to the hospital to visit Sister De la fuente because she had been in the hospital since thursday due to a kidney infection(dont worry, she got released today) And we didnt get back home until 9:30 and then Sunday we had church and it was such a great fast and testimony meeting! The spirit was so strong and I loved everyones testimonies! This morning we were able to go back to the hospital with the sisters and help them get all checked out and now they are back in their apartment! Overall it was a super busy week! Something I really am so grateful for though is this week is the comfort I have recieved and the strength my Heavenly Father has given me. It was hard hearing about Josh and Ryan and then having one of the sisters here be hospitalized but as I really prayed and studied in the scriptures I recieved so much peace and I am so thankful for the power of prayer and of fasting. I know that God loves us and I know that he is ALWAYS there for us if we just let him in. I know that as we do what he asks of us we can find peace even in the hardest of times. I am so thankful for the gospel and for the love my savior shows me on a daily basis. I am so thankful for the small and simple things that can always help me to know he is there! I love this work and I love the gospel SO much(: I hope that you guys have another amazing week! 
Love always,

Great week :)

Hola Familia!! 
What a fast week it has been!! Things here have been really great! It has been a week full of learning and seeing little miracles! (: On tuesday we had a really great district class in which we talked about the atonement and missionary work and I just love knowing that as a missionary I have the opportunity to teach everyone about Christs atoning sacrifice for us. It was a great meeting. On wednesday we had a normal day with some really good lessons! And on Thursday we had interviews with President Clayton(: When I went into my interview President clayton said, " SIster Searle, it looks like in 2 short months you will be going home in 2 short months, how does that make you feel?" haha and i just lauhged because i felt like it was a thereapy session haha but it was a really great interview! I explained to President that I am getting so excited to see you all again and that I just plan to finishing my mission off strong and he told me to just make sure I take time to enjoy it all! He gave me some really great advice on how I can stay focused but at the same time let the Lord prepare me for when I finish my mission! I really enjoyed the interview! We also had little interviews with Sister Clayton and shes just awesome! haha I love her so much! She gave Sis.Aris and I a special assignment and when we get it all finished I will send you all pictures(: 
On Friday and Saturday we had splits with the sisters and I was in the area of the other sisters with Sister Flores. It was really great to work with her. I learned a lot! 
On Saturday night the bishop called us and told us we would be speaking in church haha it was a blessing he told us with such little notice so I didnt get too nervous haha but it went well! 
Now for the little miracles(: 
There is a sister here in the ward who had a surgery a couple weeks ago to remove a tumor. It has been a really hard process for her because she is about 45 and she lives with her mom who has a lot of health problems. Her sister has been here from out of town helping her but, her sisters daughter leaves on her mission September 15 so she needs to get back to her house to help her daughter and the sister who got the surgery had to get another surgery yesterday because there were complications. This sister had some problems with some other sisters in the ward who never really took the time to help others and these sisters have been by her side since the first surgery. they have been preparing her food, staying nights in the hospital with her, visiting her mom and doing all they can to help her. The sisters in this ward have truly come together to make things so much easier for this family! It has been so amazing to see it. 
Another story is there is a brother in the ward who is 97 years old and he as well is pretty sick he has cancer and has been in and out of the hospital. When he is in his house we always go and sing him hymns and he just has so much faith in Christ and the plan that God has for him. His wife who is 94 I believe is such a trooper, when I first got here she was in a depression and was so sad but these past couple days she has recieved so much strenght and peace in her life and always tells us she knows that its not a seperation for very much time because she will be with her husband forever. It has been so cool seeing how much peace these people have recieved these last couple weeks. 
There are so many things I could share with you guys but I would be writing a book haha but really things are going so well here. I feel so blessed to be in this area and to be able to see the power of Christs atonement in the lives of so many people. 
It makes me sad to hear about Ryan. His family will be in my prayers. 
I will also be praying for Josh so that he can recover quickly and that the doctors will be guided.
I am so proud of Kendall and how far she has come I know that through her faith and all her hard work she will be able to walk this week! Please keep me updated! I am sorry it was such an emotional week back home but I love you all so much! I know that god has a perfect plan and through Christ we can all find the comfort that we need! I love you all so much!!! 
Love always,
