all i want for Christmas is...

AGUA!!!!!! Yup....we can no longer drink the water here in Salta...at least for a week! We received an "emergency" phone call the other day letting us know that there is salmonella in the water so now we have to buy water. And water is not cheap. Bueno, it’s not that expensive but I would rather buy chocolate if you know what I mean :) 

Anyways, we found an amazing investigador recently named Agustina. She has 18 years but has been through a lot in her life to help strengthen her faith in our Savior Jesus Christ. She recently told us that she wants to be a missionary!!!!! YAY BECAUSE MISSIONS ARE THE BEEESSSSTTTTT!!!!!! So we are helping her learn more about the love from our Heavenly Father and prepare for a sacred promise with Him. 

Dios nos na poder! FYI it is pretty hot here in South America. And riding bikes all day in the beating sun makes me a little tired BUT GOD OUR STRENGTH WILL BE! The other day we had to be in the church at 800 for a meeting but with our luck, we had just finished a lesson and were far far away from the church. When we left the lesson, we hopped on our bikes, I looked at Hermana Westra and said VAMOS!!!! And then I sang called to serve all the way to the church and lots of people were staring but I don’t care because we got to the church in a quick 10 minutes. That is a record my friends. But I know that I received that strength from the Lord because fat Kelly would have probably just stopped for some ice cream on the way! 

Hey everyone. Wanna know the secret of missionary work? Bueno, you can´t tell your friends or my president...because it’s a secret. But I trust y’all so here it is: the secret to missionary work is THE HOLY GHOST! I have learned a lot from Hermana Westra about the power that comes from the Holy Ghost. Porque bueno, this is the Lords work and we are only instruments in His hands so we have to do it His way. And they only way we can know what His way is through the Holy Ghost. I have recently set some goals so that Ï can have the Holy Ghost more during lessons, planning, everything! So all you future missionaries out there....learn the way the spirit speaks to YOU! 

Did you like my baja cana last week? I promise I won’t do it again haha! But I found this scripture in my personal study yesterday and maybe shed a tear...okay I did. But anyway, we had a rough Sunday. It is hard for our investigadores to come to church and so sometimes I get a little discouraged. But afterwards I was reading in my favorite book - the Book of Mormon and found this treasure 

2 Nephi 4:26 reads:

“O then, if I have seen so great things, if the Lord in his condescension unto the children of men hath visited men in so much mercy, why should my heart weep and my soul linger in the valley of sorrow, and my flesh waste away, and my strength slacken, because of mine afflictions?”

Que lindo!!!! As I think of the all the innumerable blessings that God has given and continues to give me on a daily basis, I have absolutely no reason to be sad or discouraged. AND NEITHER DO YOU! So choose to be happy! Choose to be grateful! And choose to accept the love of our loving Heavenly Father!!!! 

Spanish word of the week: Navidad - CHRISTMAS 

Love you all! Have a very merry Christmas and eat lots of cookies and win all the ugly Christmas sweater contests!

rubias tienen poder

Hola!!!! Hello! Whadduppp??? (That’s what Hermana Westra and I say now. Since we are two blondes, everyone always assumes that we only speak English so they yell in their strong Latino accent HELLO. It keeps me laughing)

Anyways, crazy week here in Guemes! We had a service activity, capilla abierta (open house at the church) and ward conference so wow. I’m quite the exhausted missionary. But here are some highlights of the week...

- WARD CHOIR WENT OUT WITH A BANG!!!!! I’m sure you were all on your seat waiting to hear how the choir turned out and I am here to tell you that it was a grand success. Everyone had matching scarfs like in Pitch Perfect and they didn’t sing as off tune as usual. I would call it a Golden Trophy kind of performance! 

- Here in Argentina, there is not a single spicy thing. They have this sauce that is supposed to be spicy but is far from spicy. But gracias a la Hermana Taylor, I have some siracha sauce in the apartment and I brought it to lunch so this grandma in our ward could try it and bueno, let me just tell y’all that she almost died. I have never seen such quick reflexes in all my life. Luckily we were already outside (because it is too hot to be indoors this days) so she spat so hard all over the ground. 

- We talked to the mom of Aron!!!!! Aron is on the list of people we have been teaching that really wants to be baptized but need permission from his mom and POR FIN we found her and talked and YAY THINGS ARE LOOKING GOOD! More than anything, we testified of the blessings that come from being a member of the church and en verdad, there are so many blessings! I know that God blesses us as we keep His commandments and strive to become more like our Savior, Jesus Christ. 

- Rebecca ya esta. Our ward mission leader’s girlfriend from Brazil is finally in town and poor thing doesn’t speak Spanish and everyone thinks they’re crazy but I love the drama 

-We had a ward activity this week to clean the public hospital here in Guemes. It was a great activity and pretty successful! We gave Christmas gifts, cleaned, and painted trees. Yeah...that’s a weird thing they do here in Argentina because there are so many bugs! But it was super fun! We got to use the Mormon Hands t-shirts and talk to a lot of people about our church and what we believe! 

- Are y’all LIGHTING THE WORLD???? Because Christmas ya viene. Which means that everyone should be extra holly jolly and loving the Christmas music on replay! But don’t forget to serve others and spread a little Christ-like love! 

Bueno, I’m gonna teach you all a little something about Argentina that is called BAJAR LA CAÑA!!!!  Don’t look it up in google translate because it doesn’t make sense but it happens all the time here in Guemes. Basically it means "cracking the whip" or like "whipping them into shape". idk. I don’t like to bajar la cana but my dear companion, Hermana Adams, taught me everything I needed to know. Here is my scripture of the week and an example of BAJA CANA:

I have learned a lot about the blessings that come from church attendance. I love seeing the changes in my investigadores lives after they have felt of the love that God has specifically for them in His house. I love the promises in 3 Nefi 18 that talk about the commandment and blessing of participating in the sacrament each week. 

3 Nefi 18:9 says, “And it came to pass that they did so, and did drink of it and were filled; and they gave unto the multitude, and they did drink, and they were filled.”

I love that it says and they were filled...with whatever they need in their life. Filled with hope, filled with love, filled with patience, filled with time, filled with temporal blessings. God is all-knowing and all-powerful so I know that as we obey commandments, we will be blessed. And bueno, for those who don’t keep the Sabbath day holy (this is where the baja cana comes in), there are different promises 

3 Nefi 18:13 says, “But whoso among you shall do more or less than these are not built upon my rock, but are built upon a sandy foundation; and when the rain descends, and the floods come, and the winds blow, and beat upon them, they shall fall, and the gates of hell are ready open to receive them.”


hahah and there you have it. The first baja cana that I have ever done! Hahaha but go to church. It’s good for you!!! 


Wow (Spanish word of the week): estornudar: to sneeze

Hola familia y amigos! Como estan???

We had a super great week here in Guemes and didn´t even get lost that much! Since Hermana Taylor left, I have had to guide this huge area but with the help of the Lord, we got around! But now I am with Hermana Westra, ANOTHER GRINGA, from Utah! Here are 5 things that I love about Hermana Westra:
1. She went to the same high school as my cousins - the Feldmans! And we have a few friends in common because she was also at BYU last fall
2. She speaks Spanish sooooo good. Like better than me. But I am more humbled by my Spanish abilities and always look for ways to improve 
3. She is super healthy! So she is helping me be a healthier person...even though I haven’t eaten ice cream for a whole week and that is hard...
4. Her testimony is so strong! I can feel the spirit bien fuerte when she bears testimony on the Atonement of Jesus Christ and Joseph Smith 
5. Super obedient and diligent! She came on the mission to WORK and we are gonna do just that work. work. work. 

Yup. God has blessed me so so much! I don´t know why I always am so anxious for transfers because He always gives me exactly what I need, exactly when I need it. And I know He does the same for each and every one of you!  Trust more.  Fear less.

Bueno prayer warriors, send some prayers your way for Jessica and Jimena and Nico and Leo. Each one of them are preparing for baptisms and bueno WE WANT A WHITE CHRISTMAS BUT WE WANT IT WHITE IN BAPTISMAL CLOTHING. yup. That’s the goal. And we are working really hard to gain? (idk the word) the goal!  But more than anything, pray that they can have strong testimonies!  Also, it is time to LIGHT THE WORLD!!!!  Watch the video, shed some tears, share it with your friends and bring Christmas joy to everyyyoooone! I absolutely love the video and the church´s initiative to help bring others to Christ! 

FYI our district is all gringos (people from the USA aka best country in the world) this transfer so we are probably gonna talk a lot of English but also spend Christmas and New Year’s together so that will be lots of fun! 

Bueno, I have spiritual message mumble jumble in my brain that I would love to explain but I’m not sure how but I’ll give it a shot and y’all can help me figure it all out! 

1 Nefi 21:14-15 “But, behold, Zion hath said:  The Lord hath forsaken me, and my Lord hath forgotten me – but he will show that he hath not.  For can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb?  Yea, they may forget, yet I will not forget thee, O house of Israel.”

3 Nefi 11:15 “And it came to pass that the multitude went forth, and thrust their hands in his side, and did feel the prints of the nails in his hands and in his feet; and this they did do, going forth one by one until they had all gone forth, and did see with their eyes and did feel with their hands, and did know of a surety and did bear record, that it was he, of whom it was written by the prophets, that should come.”

We are literally on the hands of the Savior. He suffered for YOU! He loves YOU!  And He will heal YOU! I love the phrase one by one. I know that the Lord is aware of our specific needs and all the things that are going on in our life. I know that He gives us challenges He knows we can handle and the least we can trust in His perfect!

Love you all!  Thanks for everything!!!

Hola friends and family! Transfers today so we don´t have a lot of time but I'll give y'all a quick update of this crazy week. 

Oh and HAPPY THANKSGIVING! there is so much to be grateful for!!!! 

  • I am grateful for Hermana Taylor. She has been such a good example to me and i have loved our time together. I know she is gonna work miracles in her next area! I will be receiving another gringa - Hermana Westra. Pictures will be coming next week! 
  • I am grateful for Jimena and her family! Jimena is preparing for baptism and I absolutely love visiting her family! Her little sister, Julieta always gives us a great big hug and she is so sassy! Plus we both have the same love for food so we get along great! Keep Jimena in your prayers! 
  • I am grateful for the strange cheese man who only sells cheese on the corner. And he also wears really weird sunglasses but he makes me smile. 
  • I am grateful for Gustavo - our ward mission leader - who is engaged to a girl that he has been dating for 4 years but they have NEVER met in person!!!!!!! She is coming to Argentina this week and Gustavo is freaking out lol
  • I am grateful for the man at the bike shop that fixed my bike for free! He knows we are just two gringas trying to save the world so he helped us out. Thank you! 
  • I am grateful for the latest update on my bike - a seat warmer!!!! its called the sun! Yup, the sun is shining real bright here in Guemes and it makes the seat nice and toasty. 
  • I am grateful for relief society here in Argentina. The only thing i am missing is some marshmallows because it is a ROAST session every week. Argentine women have a very strong character and are not afraid to express their opinions

So much to be grateful for! Our loving Heavenly Father is aware of every single on of His children and rains blessings upon us every day!

never. stop. running.

Hola! Que tal? Are yall getting pumped for Thanksgiving this week? Very sadly, Thanksgiving is not a holiday here in Argentina. And bueno, if you know me, you know that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday because I love being grateful and I love food! So go ahead and eat an extra slice of pumpkin pie for me! My gringa and I will be celebrating here in Guemes (but without all the yummy food) 
Anyways, we had a super great week and worked really hard! AND WE ATE MAPLE DONUTS!!!!! With my imagination, I was basically in Krispy Kreme enjoying a donut hot of the press. But in reality, I was eating a cold scone with maple frosting (another shout-out to my mom for the maple extract)
Bueno, Hermana Taylor and I have started running...believe it or not....every morning to lose a little of this weight we have gained on the mission. As we are running, I have a lot of time to reflect and think about my life. This week, when I was basically dead, I remembered that a little over a year ago I ran a half marathon. And now I can barely run a mile....but that’s another topic. Anyway, I remember in my training, I only had one goal 'never stop running’. I didn’t know what to expect the day of my race and I had never run a half marathon before so I didn’t have a timed goal. My only goal was to never stop running. And bueno, I finished my half marathon, ran the whole thing and was pleased with my performance. I didn’t get first place or even a very good time but I was proud that I gave it all I had. As a missionary, I have found a lot of correlation between my half marathon and missionary service. I don’t know all the results I am going to get from my mission, I don’t know how many converts I will have written in Preach my Gospel, I don’t know how many of my investigadores will come to church but I do know that I will give it all I have. I will give the Lord my all for 18 months and as I finish this spiritual journey I can rest, knowing that I tried my best. I invite you all to do the same. Whatever you are doing with your life in this moment: studying, working, being a parent, professional nap taker, GIVE IT ALL YOU GOT AND NEVER STOP RUNNING! 
(Motivational speaker Hermana Mannewitz out)
I’m almost legal! I finished up some paperwork this week so I should be getting my Argentina ID in about a month! Woohhooo! Finally!!!
Ohmygoodness. We made cookies! My lovely family sent me a package with a package of Betty Crocker cookies and to celebrate Hermana Taylor completing 1 year in the mission, we made some DELICIOUS chocolate chip cookies. Wow....I haven’t eaten a warm, soft chocolate chip cookie in so long. It was absolutely amazing. Enjoy all those Christmas cookies that will be coming soon! 
Pray for Aron aful! Tonight we will be having a Family Home Evening activity with Aron and his parents and some members from the ward here in Guemes. Aron really wants to be baptized but needs permission from his parents. This could be the night that he finally has permission to enter the waters of baptism! Pray for the hearts of his parents, that they will be softened by the spirit! And more than anything, that we can all have trust in the Lord’s timing. 
Lady giving a talk in church, bragging about how awesome her husband is "We don’t have kids but we have a cat and he always takes good care of our cat" (starts crying) 
Are you converted unto the Lord? A real test of our conversion to our Heavenly Father is in the strength of our testimony. I have studied a lot about testimonies lately because testimonies are more important than a baptism. Testimonies are more important than another name in Preach my Gospel. Because if we have a strong testimony in the principles of the Gospel, we will be able to overcome the trials and difficulties of life. This week I was reading in Ether, one of my favorite books in the book of Mormon. The Brother of Jared and his people are commanded to build a boat and cross the seas. The Lord leads them through the process of constructing a boat that will survive the storms and waves of the ocean and the people built the boat very tight 

Ether 2:17 “And they were built after a manner that they were exceedingly tight, even that they would hold water like unto a dish; and the bottom thereof was tight like unto a dish; and the sides thereof were tight like unto a dish; and the ends thereof were peaked; and the top thereof was tight like unto a dish; and the length thereof was the length of a tree; and the door thereof, when it was shut, was tight like unto a dish.”

And with the tightness of the boat, they were not overcome by the storms 

Ether 6:7 “And it came to pass that when they were buried in the deep there was no water that could hurt them, their vessels being tight like unto a dish, and also they were tight like unto the ark of Noah; therefore when they were encompassed about by many waters they did cry unto the Lord, and he did bring them forth again upon the top of the waters.” 

How tight is your testimony? I know that if we have a strong testimony in the eternal plan of happiness from our loving Heavenly Father.  We will be safe in the storms of life. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and that it can be applied to our daily life. I know that God lives, God loves, and God has the power to change our lives. 
Have a great thanksgiving! And a special birthday shout-out to my bestie Emily in Thailand! And a special anniversary shout-out to my amazing parents! Love y’all!

Sun: 1, Hermana Mannewitz: 0

That´s right. I thought I was bigger and better than the sun and received my first good sunburn here in Argentina. And don´t worry mom...I learned my lesson and that will be the last burn! 

Did you know . . .
·       Here in Argentina, it’s really cool to put fish on top of pizza
·       The lady at the hot dog stand knows my name
·       There was an earthquake in Argentina

Bueno, those were just some fun facts of the week! 

WOW WE HAD A CONFERENCE WITH ALL THE MISSION!!!!!!!!!!!!  And it was absolutely amazing!!!  Elder Christensen from the Presidency of the 70 and his wife came to visit our mission so we got to reunite as a mission and be uplifted, edified, and take a mission picture. Some highlights of the conference were:
·       Saw Hermana Norman! I can´t believe that she is going home at the end of the month. Time really flys by in the mission! But she is doing great and working lots of miracles in the heat of Santiago. I´m super excited to see her in a quick 11 months.
·       I saw other great mission friends ' Hermana Tolson, Hermana Oliviera, Elder Guarteche, Elder Vigil and other great missionaries that have made a big difference in my life. 
·       Elder Christensen spoke about the Holy Ghost and the power of Holy Ghost in conversion. He had about an hour to speak and only spoke on the Holy Ghost. I think that explains a little bit about the importance of the Holy Ghost in the work of the Lord. He gave great tips and tricks on what we can do, like imperfect missionaries, to be worthy of the spirit in every single second of the work. I sure have a lot more to study and a lot more to work on but I am grateful for the guidance I received. 
·       Hermana Christensen was a special mailman. In the conference, every missionary had the opportunity to greet Elder and Hermana Christensen, but since this was a special conference, we were limited to a handshake, nothing more. When it was my turn to give handshakes to them, Presidente Orquera walked over and said ¨This is Hermana Mannewitz¨. Hermana Christensen immediately threw her arms over me and gave me a great big hug. Then she pulled a card out of her bag and said this was a letter from Granny and Grandpa Priday. She explained how much they loved me and then gave me one more hug with a big squeeze, special request from Granny. 
·       Angels are protecting us! Presidente Orquera told a story and explained the miracles of missionary work. A couple days ago, there was a fire in the apartment of some elders. There are 4 elders who live in this apartment and they were all sleeping in one bedroom (the bedroom that had air conditioning of course) and a fire began in the kitchen. But bueno, the mission is hard work so the elders were fast asleep and didn´t have any clue that there was a small fire in their kitchen. A mother and son happened to be taking a nightly stroll at three in the morning and looked through the small window of the elders and saw the fire. They knocked on the elder’s door and immediately called the fireman. Fireman quickly arrived and the elders were lead to safety. The fireman said that the fire was small enough that it wasn´t going to kill them but the carbon monoxide would have killed them within the next hour. Presidente testified of angels. We are doing the work of the Lord, so He is going to protect us. Of course this was a pretty intense experience, but now all the apartments will be receiving fire alarms and carbon monoxide monitors in the apartment. And all the missionaries walked away with a stronger testimony in the power of angels. I can also testify that angels are around us to lift us up, make us work a little harder and be a little better. 

And there’s a quick wrap up of the conference we had this week! 

Pray for Exiquiel! We are preparing a baptism for the end of November and we are really excited! Exiquiel is the boyfriend of a member but told us that he has desires to be baptized, not because of obligation. He has been attending seminary (que capo) and the church for the past couple months and is finally ready to take upon him the baptismal covenant and receive the blessings that God is preparing. Also keep Aron in your prayers! He has so many desires but only lacks the support of his parents! 

Bueno, in the conference Hermana Bragg talked about the tools that we have been given to receive eternal life. I love the example of Nefi (really spelled Nephi – her Spanish is peeking through) in the Book of Mormon.  At the beginning of the Book of Mormon, we read about the trials he faced and the murmuring of his brethren. Despite the challenges, Nefi maintained his hope and confidence in the Savior.  And just when Nefi thought he couldn´t handle anymore, the Lord commanded him to build a boat. A BOAT!!!!  How often does God ask us to do things that seem almost impossible?  But I love Nefi´s positive attitude and trust in Heavenly Father´s plan for him. He knew that God had a perfect plan of happiness for him. And bueno, sometimes we have celestial oceans to cross but God will always provide a way and all the tools we need to keep his commandments. 

1 Nefi 17:50-51
“And I said unto them:  If God had commanded me to do all things I could do them.  If he should command me that I should say unto this water, be thou earth, it should be earth; and if I should say it, it would be done.
“And now, if the Lord has such great power, and has wrought so many miracles among the children of me, how is it that he cannot instruct me, that I should build a ship?”

I testify that with God´s help, we can keep the commandments, we can be happy and we can do hard things. 

Thanks for all the prayers, support and love!!!! Have a super great week!

2 Gringas en Guemes

And it came to pass on the second day of the eleventh month in the year two thousand seventeen, Hermana Taylor and Hermana Mannewitz went forth in the strength of the Lord. And I, Hermana Mannewitz, testify that we did suffer from great heat (like more than one hundred degrees), nevertheless, laboring diligently according to will of the Lord STILL ATE SOUP FOR LUNCH. I DO NOT UNDERSTAND.

Yup. Another great week in the work of the Lord. And although I have no idea why we continue to eat soup in the blazing eat, I am super grateful for the almuerzos that we receive every day. Bueno, this week was full of adventures, surprises and spiritual greatness! 

·       I saw my buddy Andres from Limache! And he had a package of love, letters and food from my family! It was great to receive a package but it was also so good to see Andres. I sure do miss Limache and all my homies there but I know that the Lord has called me to serve here in Guemes now! 
·       Zone conference!!!! With big changes too! Presidente Orquera has lots of excitement for missionary work and is doing everything he can to see the miracles of the Lord here in the best mission in the world. With changes in the way we find new investigadores and how to most effectively stay active in the church and receive the blessings that God is preparing them, we have a lot to improve on! But change is good! Change is a humbling experience and helps me put more trust in my Heavenly Father and His will. 
·       Surprise interviews with Presidente was the best Halloween surprise here in Argentina. That’s right, Halloween is not a thing here in Argentina, but Presidente was all in on the jokes and scares this Halloween. So yeah, we had surprise interviews but they went really well! 
·       Me: "God loves each and every one of His children" 
Person I’m teaching: "minus the Chinese"
·       Our bishop plays ping pong....competitively 
·       When your companera takes Saracha Sauce out of her bag in the middle of lunch with some members. 
·       Spanish update: basically Latina. hahajaj jk but I absolutely love Spanish now. I can understand almost everything that the Argentines say (unless they are talking about medical things.  Then I suffer a little bit) and I can speak pretty well! Now I am going to focus on my accent so that I am a true Latina by the time I return home....besides the fact that I am BIEN RUBIA.
·       Obispo and his family are incredible examples to me! They live right next to us which is a huge blessing. If we ever need help, they are only one hand clapping away. But they are so strong in the gospel. Their two year old son was recently diagnosed with Autism which has been quite the challenge because there are not good medicos here in Guemes. But they continue to put their trust in the Lord. Hermana Isendorf told me that she has seen so many miracles from the Lord, but only if she has her eyes open to see them. Sometimes, we have to actively search for the innumerable ways that Heavenly Father blesses us every day. 
·       Ward choir continues to be the highlight of my week 
·       Pray for Aron! Aron has 14 years and has so many desires to be baptized but doesn’t have the support of his parents! Keep him in your prayers! And bueno, if you’re praying, pray for Josefina, Clara, Belen, Sebastian and Exiquel also! thank you so much! I know Heavenly Father hears the heartfelt prayers as long as we ask with faith!

This week I have been studying The Living Christ as suggested by our prophets and leaders of the church. I love reading about the attributes of Jesus Christ and learning how I can be more like him, especially in this time of my life as a disciple of Jesus Christ. I was studying how Jesus Christ is our Advocate unto the Father and found a scripture in D&C and absolutely fell in love 
D&C 45:3-5 
“Listen to him who is the advocate with the Father, who is pleading your cause before him –
“Saying: Father, behold the sufferings and death of him who did no sin, in whom thou wast well pleased; behold the blood of thy Son which was shed, the blood of him whom thou gavest that thyself might be glorified;
“Wherefore, Father, spare these my brethren that believe on my name, that they may come unto me and have everlasting life.”

He pleads our case!!!! He wants us to return back to His presence! He wants us to be happy!!!! Wow. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and everything He did for me! I know that it is only through His atoning sacrifice and mercy that we can return to His presence but I know that He has given us everything we need to receive celestial glory! So be strong! Press forward! God is cheering you on! God lives. God loves. And God has the power to change your live. 

Love you all! Thanks for everything! Have a super great week! Oh and happy November!!!!
