Week 52: Tender Mercies..


Woke up this morning to a phone call from my district leader saying "Hermana Watt! Happy Birthday! Can´t believe you are already 21! Just go ahead and kiss your teenage years goodbye!"

I laughed a little, then cried a little. 

But, the good news is that I have 21 years to look back on, this past year being one of the hardest, but most rewarding of my life. I love the gospel, and I am so thankful that I have had this opportunity to serve. 

This past week I had the chance to see one of my converts from my first area. I was glad to hear that after a few hardships she is still doing well, and still active. We had a super spiritual experience, and it made me realize that really, even helping save one person, makes the ENTIRE mission worth it. 

I LOVE THIS CHURCH, and I KNOW without a shadow of a doubt that this is Christ´s true church restored again here on earth.

Chilean Birthday Party For Kam!

It is so wonderful to know that when she is so far away from us that someone in Chile did something so special for her birthday.  The Lord loves us and is constantly showing tender mercies to us.  Viviana Burgos Sinchi posted these pictures of Kamryn from Placilla, de Penuelas, Chile.

Week 51: My life be like... Twilight...

First. I love you all, and I am so thankful for all of you! 

Funny story:
We were in sacrament meeting a few sundays ago, and we brought our investigator Mesach. He is like 80 and we don´t understand him very well but He really wanted to get up and bear his testimony. So he got up there and the first thing he said was "I am so glad to be here with all of you in this great Evangelical church sharing about the good love of Christ"... Let´s just say it was an awkward start. He loves the gospel though, and even though he doesn´t learn super fast, He loves Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. And now he has it clear that this isn´t the Evangelical Church....

Also, I pretty much live in the Twilight movie because it is almost ALL forest here, and I love it. Might as well be living in Washington. 

I love the mission, and I have learned so much this past year about truly serving the Lord. I have really come to love my Savior even more every day for everything that he has done and sacrificed for me. He is my best friend, and I love that I can feel the love he has for these people. Being a missionary is the greatest calling. The best part is that you don´t have to have a plaque to be one (: SHARE THE GOSPEL with EVERYONE! 

The church is true! No doubt in my mind. 

Love, Hermana Watt

Week 50: MY FAMILY!

Hello to all! 

Another short note this week! I am so sorry, but there is hardly any more time in the work of the Lord! It is always for him. His time, His will! There are a lot more responsibilities that I have now in reguards to having to spend more time writing my mission president, so my time is little bit shorter, but it doesn´t mean I love you less!

I am still here in Placilla with Hermana Page, and we are doing awesome! We had a leadership meeting with the leaders this week, and a lot of my friends from the MTC and old companions were there! I got to see my trainer, Hermana Lopez, my MTC friends and Comp Hermana Evans, Morris, and Hansen and I got to see my mission ¨daughter¨Herman Andrade! It was SO much fun. 

Here is a generation picture! 

My mom, me and my daughter! WAHOO! 

I love you all!

Loves, HErmana Watt

Week 49: Never forsake the master you enlisted to serve

My dear friends and family! 

This week we had changes, and now I am in a new area in Valparaiso called Placilla! It is so nice to be back ¨home¨ close to where I was in my first few months here in the mission field! I missed the ocean views! 

My new companion is Hermana Page, and she is a blast. She is from North Carolina and she goes home in Febuary! She is teaching me so many things! I love her. She is hilarious. 

Also, this week I met some people here that are from St. George! What a small world! My mom will post the pic! (:

Not much other than that! But, I do want to share something that I LOVE!

¨Before you joined this church, you stood on neutral ground...when you joined this church you enlisted to serve God, when you did that you left the neutral ground, and you never can get back on to it. Should you forsake the master you enlisted to serve, it will be by the instigation of the evil one, and you will follow HIS dictation and be HIS servant¨- Joseph Smith

People from St. George

Herman Watt Has New Assignment!

Kam is a new Sister Missionary Training Leader.  Here is what the church says about it:


Church Adjusts Mission Organization to Implement "Mission Leadership Council"


The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is making adjustments to the way its 405 missions are organized, to better utilize the skills and abilities of all missionaries in training and leadership. The change is due in part to the influx of thousands of young missionaries who are responding to the lowering of age requirements for mission service, announced by Church President Thomas S. Monson last October.

Each mission in the Church will organize a mission leadership council that Each mission in the Church will organize a mission leadership council that will include both include both elder (male) and sister (female) as missionary leaders. The new mission leadership council will consist of the mission president and his wife, assistants to the president, zone leaders and sister training leaders — a newly created role.

"We are very excited about the new mission leadership council and this role for sister missionaries,” said Elder David F. Evans, executive director of the Missionary Department. “It will be a blessing to both missions and missionaries throughout the world, and better employ the remarkable faith, talents and abilities of all missionaries."

The role of sister training leader has been created as more female missionaries serve in missions around the world. Sister training leaders will be responsible for the training and welfare of female missionaries assigned to them and will be members of and participate in, the new mission leadership council. Assistants to the president and zone leaders will also participate in the council, and those roles will remain unchanged. Missions will continue to be organized by zones and districts, with district leaders being responsible for baptismal interviews, but the mission leadership council will replace the zone leader council.

Sister training leaders will continue to proselytise and will also spend time each week training and evaluating the needs of female missionaries. They will report directly to the mission president on the needs of sister missionaries. Additionally, the wives of mission presidents are now being asked to play an enhanced role in training and caring for sister missionaries, subject to their individual and family circumstances.

Councils assist in Church governance at every level. In councils, assigned members meet to discuss individual, family and organizational needs and work together to determine how to respond to those needs effectively. Full expression from all participants is invited in council settings, unifying the efforts of both male and female council members.

The changes were announced to general Church leaders (General Authorities and Area Seventies) on Friday morning and will be mailed to mission and other leaders shortly. The changes will be implemented in each mission as soon as is practical.
