Week 74: Changes and New Area


Quilpue is a city and capital of the Marga Marga Province in Central Chile's Valparaiso Region.  It is part of the Greater Valparaiso metropolitan area.  It is widely know as the "City of the Sun".


We had changes! The most bittersweet moment of my life, but hey, I have to 
accept it, right? I miss Illapel and I miss Hermana Lopez, but hey, there is some
thing I have to learn here. 

I am now in Quilpue! Just about 30 or 40 minutes outside of Viña. I like it here, but the north has my heart. Always. 

My companion is Hermana León. She is super sweet, and I can`t complain. But 
I am super sarcastic, and she isn´t. Some thing that I need to change. hahaha. She doesn't get my jokes, and then I feel dumb.  But hey. Only 5 more weeks. I can do this, right? 

I feel like I might just die. All this change at once is crazy. But, I am surviving, and just trying to take it all one day at a time. I feel kind of lonely. But, I know that it`s just because the Lord wants me to grow even closer to him. 

My new mission president doesn't get here until the first day in July, so I won`t really get to meet him for about 2 more weeks when he comes to do interviews. But when I see him, I will let you know how it goes (: He seems like a nice guy. 

Hermana Evans, Hermana Hansen, Hermana Morris and I all got realeased as leaders. And a few other hermanas. So the mission has a whole new set of 
leaders, and GUESS WHAT? My hermana lider is HERMANA ANDRADE! I will get to spend a day with her! The Lord blesses us in small ways. 

I should get my coming home packet in a few weeks and it will have all of my flight information and every thing like that. I will keep you updated. But, they should also send it to you. So keep an eye out (: But it is normal
that it hasn`t come yet. It will take a few weeks I think. 

Sometimes I don`t know what or how to feel, or what or  how to think. IT IS CRAZY. It doesn`t  even feel real.

The girls look so good as pioneers! Did they love it?  I wish I could have gone :( Maybe one day I will be able to! They look like they had fun (: 

How is my homecoming going to be? Is it a lot of people or just the fam? Just so I can know and be prepared! 

I love you!

Week 73: Zone Conference

39 MORE DAYS!!!  (AS OF JUNE 19)

An email sent to her mom Amber on June 15th.

I think it might be safe to say that I am freaking out. The truth is that in 
2 days we have changes. What does that mean? That there is only 6 WEEKS left in my mission, and I have know idea what to think or to do. Part of me wants to just come get you guys and come back here forever. What do you think? haha. 

Kadee is the best friend ever. I think that honestly, she will have a straight-way to the Celestial Kingdom without a doubt. Especially for putting up with me as her best friend. Honestly.  I love her more than life, and am so lucky 
that she is helping me out so much. But thank you too mom (: You care so much and you have been helping me SO much. You are the best mom
the world has ever known, and i miss you so much every day! I can´t wait to see your face! 

(3 days ago) we had a Confrence of Liders with President. It was the last one with him and so he took us all out to lunch at a restaurant with an OCEAN VIEW. It was so stunning,and it made me so happy that we got to spend that time with him and his wife. They are so amazing mom!  We were all crying. He leaves officially in about 2 weeks. It will be bittersweet. 

This week is changes, and I already know that I am leaving Illapel, because sister training leaders always stop being sister training leaders a change before they go home. So President told me that I will be going to a new area for my last change. I don't know where yet.  We shall see. I will be sad to leave Hermana Lopez, but happy to go to a new sector. 

Our branch is doing well. Still really little. But everyone who goes is so sweet (: 

It is FREEZING here. So I might just get off the plane in a jacket and boots. Even though it will be summer there, here I am dying. Yes, the Chileans like to sleep in! It is crazy. They all leave work at lunch time to eat and take a nap. 


see you before you know it (: 

love, kam

This week's blog is from a letter sent by Kamryn to her mother.


It's about time that you got a new phone! (; It is time if you want to be part of the "hip in-crowd". (; haha. jk.  Don't even worry, because I doubt I will remember how to use one. No stress! 

I love my hannah! I am happy that she is happy to go!  Is uncle Jar excited that she is going to Canada?

My branch is doing good! The attendance this week was 20. Including 2 missionaries. But, it is good because we have a sweet relationship with all of them (: They are the most faithful ever! 

We have some REALLY good investigators, who want to be baptized but 
it is hard for them to come to church, because church = commitment, and it is WAY to early for them. So we are working on their testimonies. 

I am starting to feel nervous, because the time passes by SO fast. But I really am excited to see the family, and the good news is that the boys friends who have all returned from their missions all still hang out together, and I am sure that sometimes they will let me hang out with them...right? or are they too cool? I don't know. We shall see!  And the BEST news... I will have you, allie, and kadee and ken. So hopefully that will help me! 

My flight info should come in a few weeks. I am trying to remember how soon it came with hermana page as I was her last companion. Mom. In a week in a half, the last change will be over. That means I will only have 6 weeks left in the mission. The LAST change of my whole mission. It is sad :( But happy at the same time. Bittersweet. 

I got my package with the the chocolate and the cards (: thank you so much! 
It made my whole day to get a package!  We have a leadership meeting on Friday and I will be in Viña. So we will see if another package makes it. 

I am so sad that I couldn't go on the trek :( I wanted to go so bad. Maybe one day I can go when I am older, right? 

Mom, I love  you more than life! Thank you for everything that you do for me (: You are my best friend ever and I LOVE YOU! 

49 More Days!
Or 7 weeks!!!!!

Can you believe that there are only 50 more days till Kamryn returns home from her mission?
