Sucre for life!!!!

Hey Fam!

To start off, I don't have a transfer! Hermana Bolaños and I are going to be together one more transfer which I am super happy about. We have been working hard and are just starting to see the fruits of our labor. I hope that I'll be able to see the baptisms of many of our investigators that I have been working with for so long!

We are teaching Andrea who has a fecha for December 21 and she is progressing super well! She came to church yesterday with her friend that gave us the reference. I have a strong testimony of references and working with the members. It is definitely the most efficient and successful way to do missionary work! We also taught our couple again. This week the husband told us how he wants to get baptized so badly. The wife still lacks on having a testimony, but we have set to teach her every morning this week and help develop a greater understanding of the Book of Mormon. They have also worked out many of their problems in their relationship and are working with the bishop to get married! I hope and pray that they can continue to progress and one day have an eternal family. I have the faith that they will get baptized this transfer! The father of Shirley and Rilber will return from work in Santa Cruz this week or the next and Nelby told us that when he arrives they are going to get married so she can get baptized. The mom Nebly, is incredible. She brings her kids to church every week without fail and has a super strong testimony of the gospel and wants to be baptized so badly!

I am grateful that I have another transfer here! I love Sucre so much and the people (both the members and investigators) are amazing! The work here is moving along! We have lots of lessons planned with members this next week which I am excited about and we have been working hard for them. It was cool, yesterday we literally had 4 people tell us how they want to teach with us this week!

Yesterday was Hermana Bolaños' birthday which was fun! She turned 26. She is so funny. We get along super well and work well together as well. It'll be good to be together one more transfer.

I just read this week about the anti-nephi lehites and how they buried their weapons of rebellion. I love this story so much! They are such great examples of their desire to follow Christ and change their lives! Here in the mission I have realized how many weaknesses and faults I have. I have many "weapons of rebellion" that I need to bury! I am so grateful for the atonement and the opportunity I have to partake of the sacrament every week and try to be better. I have realized that that is really what "endure to the end" means. To continue to do your best to be better and more like Christ every day.

I cannot believe that it is December! We can Skype on Christmas for 40 minutes:) so I need a Skype account that is attached to one of yours! If you could give me the info to log in one that would be great. It will be so good to talk to you guys! I love you all so much! Thanks for all your love and support. I pray for you guys every day! I am doing well and I love this work so much!

Con mucho amor,

Hermana Gardiner!
