Last email. Hasta Ver!


Yes the time has come. This is my last email. I will be arriving thursday in Austin, Tx. Im sad but Excited to see everyone. I have learned so much in my mission and I wouldnt change it for anything in the world. I know Without doubt that GOd loves us and that this is the work of the lord. I have so many things to say but Ill just leave with a scripture in 3 John.

13 had many things to write, but will not with ink and pen awrite untothee:
14 But trust shall shortly see thee, and we shall speak face to face.Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.
I love you all! thanks for the Emails, letters, cards, prayers. I COULD NOT have done it without yall. And ill never forget all the testimonies that touched my heart this christmas. Thanks you 



HEYYY Like 2 weeeks ago we had a zone conference in Siquirres! Yep thats right lots of Hermanas were in LIMON! (where there are no Hermanas) and it was a good meeting but the best part is afterwards the whole Zone went out to give 1,000 flyers inviting people to an open house! so we spent like 4 hours knocking doors with this cute little girl. It was actually really fun! ANd well heres some crazy pictures. ANd yes one of them was us stalking a cat. that was to proud to come up to us. Dang cat. it was so cute 

Then we made PUPUSAS SUnday night! Mi hija was DYIINGGG cause like 3 months without a pupusa for someone from EL Salvador is really hard! so finally we made them! ANd well they turned out pretty dang good. 

Birthdays and pipa!

Lots going on we had a miracle this week and 8 new people came to church! SO we keep going and keep fighting for the lords team! DOnt have much to write cause theres never time for anythign! Ill just have a Nice long chat with all of you when I get home! Love you guys 
spiritual thought for me this week: in Titus 1

 15 Unto the pure all things are pure: but unto them that are defiled and unbelieving is nothing pure; but even their mind and conscience is defiled.
 16 They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.

IF we have pure intentions all will be pure and well we cant say we belive in God or Christ if we are not obeying his commandments. Please dont deny GOd this week and try to have a pure heart! Love you guys! 


Here is our check of the months in presedents house! It waS SO FUN! And we ate alot! uuuussshhhhhh

This is my district! Distrito cabra! Were the craziest and best district there is! haha

BAUTISMOOOO! This was a less active family in the ward that has seen so many missionarys. And well miracles happen and we got in there to teach and all went good and the dad got to be worthy to baptize his kids and he even has a accepted a calling and its going really good! So there are so many miacles with this family and it was a pleasure to teach and help them be one step closer to be an eternal family!! 


Well Finally In my Mission we helped kill a Pig and what an expereince. It probably should have made me sad but I just kept thinking of all the good food I could make like baccon and so then it made me hungry haha... Too Awhile to get upp the courage to touch but but in the end we had a party taking photos with the poor pig. Regrets.... I think not. THen yesterday we ate chicharones from that same pig. Bless his little family cause they were really good. 

EWWWWW Even though it was dead it would like move and make sounds... creepy

And yes we took pictures with the head.

I just want to show you how Costa rica does it. THis man was carving up that pig and never stopped smoking the whole time...


Well MY Bishop is the coolest in the world so I got to have a BBQ night with another Bishop from our stake! We had so much fun and I made 3 homemade BBQ Sauces! THey tasted alright. Still missing the good stuff from home but it was way fun and our Bishop gave us good a thumbs up!

Lots of good times

I really wish I could explain the amazing things Ive expereinced recently. BUt I dont have words or time or the need to tell them. I just know that every little thing we do in the mission is for a reason. I know that the most success doesnt come from Numbers. It comes from Careing and minestering one on one as Jesus did. I know GOd prepares his children and this is his work. I know that we have the privlege to be a part of it cause its his work not ours and it will alwasy go forth. We only have 2 choices. Be apart of it or not. But the blessings and the Joy of Helping in the lords work are... well I feel like I dont even have words to discribe it either. 

So sorry for a short email! Im just gonna wait till I get home and all the stories that I didnt share will be ready for those that want to hear! haha Love you guys! Heres some pictures from the week. 

And a Scripture Romans 8:28

 28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
pictures are Arroz con pollo and PIZZAAA for a birthday! ANd I helped the little girl study for an english test. But if she didnt pass this test she would have failed the whole year of school! SO I told her if you pass Ill buy you pizza. ANd well she passed! haha 

More OF the Birthday Girl with the Cake I made! haha 
And me On Sunday! 


I never thought this day would come... They have sent me my plane ticket home. I may actually have to leave Costa RIca...

Love you all! 


Well I had a very good christmas. Saturday we had a baptism. Of this boy and not many people came because it was christmas but it was the most spiritual baptism ive had all my mission. It helped me remember why im here. We want to offer the blessing of christs atonement to all. what better way to spend christmas even then serving the lord in his work. Great Day. THen I talked in Church sunday morning reminding people that if we want to know the savior and be like him we must change. This is a gospel of Changes. We should be progressing every day every week and every year if not how are we going to become like the savior? if we never act we will always be stuck in the same but this gospel is about new begginings. SO as a Christmas gift to the savior I repented of more of my sins and I Invited all I talked to that day to also repent. It was a good day. and that night we ate BBQ outside and played uno. Good day. 

best part has to be seeing my family. It just helps me see all the more blessings I have waiting for me outside of the mission  

After christmas we did alot of service and we played with lots of christmas toys. WE even recived a couple gifts from people so it was a great week. Lots of service to do around the holiday time! I hope you all found ways to serve. if not keep looking. Theres lots to do and change this new year!

Well we had a ward activity and we did everythig. Helped cook the food and we did the entertainment and the party games and we cleaned. it was a CRAZY long day and we were so exhausted. Here was part of our acting. we did a runway show with double meanings in spanish. I was the Traje del Baño. (bathing suit) suit of the bathroom is the dirrect translation so theres the funny thing. I went in bathroom things. haha. so that was part of my week.

For New years we walked like all day looking for people to teach but like no one wanted us and finally at night we went to a party. and there was more BBQ and more uno and they started palying music in english and so ELder Gibby and I started singing and then all of the sudden they brought a mic and I dont know how but we ended up in a kariokee party for like the whole night. IT WAS CRAZY. Then they like to play with gun powder here so there was like lots of explosions and when we finally went home we could barely see from all the smoke in the air. IT was kinda scary but fun. then we lit up sparklers with our neighbors. and we may or may not have gotten home alittle late and so with a bottle of welch we decided to wait till midnight. SO we wrote in our journals and got ready for bed counted down till mid-night and when it hit midnight we screamed hugged and turned the lights of and knelt down to pray to go to bed. But after our prayer it was IMPOSIBLE to sleep casue they had fireworks going off like CRAZY! SO we just listened in darkness to all the parties outside and funny thing is it started to raight excatlly at 12 so it wasnt too much party. which is better cause i was waiting for someone to burn a house down. Its not really safe the things the use and where they use them. SO the biggest blessing was the rain! haha And that was my new years! 


I have like NOOO Time to write cause yesterday we had our Fiesta de Navida for the WHOLE MissioN! ANd I GOt up and acted and sung twice. and those who know me know I dont do that kinda thing in front of 200 people. but like PURA VIDA! Last christmas in the mission and it was the best!!! Got to see lots of friends. It was sad to say good bye to lots too but all in all it was a great. Hope everyone is having a great christmas and remembering the reason why we celebrate this glorious season.
for our savior Jesus christ. And if it wasnt for his liffe death and resserection we wouldnt even be celebrating his birth. I hope we can all come to know the saviour more this year.
I love you all so much and Im senfing lots of prayers and christmas wishes from costa Rica! And THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! To all of those who sent me their testimonies this year. Then are the best gift anyone can give.
Here is a testimony of a prophet of old that I love. 

Isaiah 9:6
 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
I know he lives I know he loves us. And I testify that becasue of him all mankind can be saved if they listen to his words and follow him.
Have a very merry christmas and a Happy new year!!
With lots of love Hermana Freeze 

Lots to catch up on!

HEy Everyone. Sorry I havent written in FOREVER. Its been a crazy month. Im gonna do my best to email today. so expect lots of pictures Starting with my new Zone. Here is our ZOne conference that happened this week. Im in Zona Atlantica which is the best Zone in the mission. Everyone is super Pura Vida! I mean my ZL has a Selfie stick.... 

Okay I am in a Small town in Costa rica. called La rita. Its really La santa Rita but everyone is so lazy so they just say La rita. ANd in this town there is nothing. It has one real road that goes in and out of town and the rest are dirt roads. but there not dirt they are filled with ROCKS!! So we spend all day walking rocks because there are no busses and no taxis. I have lost 2 pairs of shoes in a months and I have another pair thats close. There also isnt any stores of like anykind. There is 1 soda (place to eat) and 2 chicken places in the whole town. We dont even have a main grocery store. Just little markets owned my Chinese people. Los Chinos. and there are 2.
Im in a Ward that had an attendence of 140 last year till they built a new building that is HERMOSA! and well my fist sunday only 45 people showed up to church. SO my poor area is being dominated my satan and Laziness. WE have SO many people that we teach but this poor little town is dying becasue of moral sins. The law of chastity is more of a suggestion here. I Have met too many people That are 14/15/16 years old and liivng with a boy friend of 25/30 years old. Its very sad to see and worse when things go wrong. SO I have spent a good month Testifying With power and autority about Gods commandments. Ive gotten really good and listening to the spirit and teaching the truth without sugar cotting things and suprisingly people respond positivly. All this town needs is a good kick in the but. But dont we all every now in then.
weve been focusing alot on 2 scriptures from mathew casue I finished the Book of Mormon in Spanish UUUUSSSHHHHHH and Now Im starting The new testiment and man its good in spanish. Jesus has more Sass and

44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 
 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.
 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.
 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;
 49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;
 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
And in verse 46 it says it will be good for those that when the lord comes they fine him doing the work of his master. And what is the work of the lord? MISIONARY WORK! So let me tell you if you are always working in the vinyard of the lord when he comes all will be well cause you are doing his work and serving otheres but if he comes on a Sunday morning and you could have gotten up and helped some one come to church and experince the blessing of the sabeth day and you didnt casue you were too tired. Good luck to you. Cause  He will come and you well be begging for more time. But the day is TODAY!! All that we can do tomorrow we can start today! I challenge you all to start today to work in the lords vinyard! And trust me your family needs these blessings. 
28 ¶But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard. 
 29 He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
 30 And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.
 31 Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
ANd theres the other. WE all need to learn to stop putting excuse in our life. Cause how many times when someone asks us if we read our scriptures or went to church and its like aww man its casue it was a crazy weekend and I have test and work and kids and bla bla bla. let me tell you we can not come to judgment and give a tone of excuses to God of why we did not follow his comandments. The anwser is Yes or no. Did you ready your scritures this week? Yes. Good Did you go to church? No Good no repent and GO next week. THERE ARE NO EXCUSE WITH GOD. Only Yes I did your will or No I didnt. Life isnt that complicated. We must put him first and Do our best to fufill our callings. And if we didnt do it he doesnt care why. We must repent and Do it becasue its alwasy our fault. never his. 
Hope everyone has a great week! I love and miss you all Thanks so much for you letters emails and Love I feel It So strong and it keeps me going over here in the boon docks!
