Jan 16: A Birthday Transfer

First thank you to those who sent me ¨Happy Birthday¨ letters and emails! This definitely is a birthday a little different but so far it´s been awesome! It´s been kinda funny because my birthday is the same day as transfers! and because I have so much time in this area I basically knew that I was going to change! And my birthday falls on the day when I leave this area and I´m in a bus all day traveling to my other area haha but we got our transfer calls yesterday and I´m gonna be leaving my area tomorrow morning to go to my new area with a new companion! So I´ll be spending my birthday in a bus haha happy 20th!! wahoooo But it´s all good because yesterday one of my favorite families in my ward threw a little birthday party for me. A bunch of elders came and there was cake and everything! Tonight we have a family home evening with another of my favorite families and it´s gonna be another little birthday party :) I couldn´t ask for better members! seriously!

Second, we got transfers!! I´m going to be headed to San Martin! It´s kinda funny because I´m going back to the same stake where I was before, which is really rare to happen to hermanas! ( THIS IS NOT THE AREA THEY CLOSED THAT KYLIE WAS IN FOR 14 WEEKS - MOM'S NOTE ) but I´m super excited! My companion is a cute girl form Brazil that has just 5-6 months in the mission. I´m really excited!

This whole week we´ve been running around like crazy visiting people! We had so many appointments! One day we went to visit one of our members named Rosa. When I came to this area 6 months ago she was super inactive. As we visited her she started coming back to church and has shared her testimony the past 2 testimony meetings! Rosa even came with the ward on the temple trip they had in December and she took out her endowments! I couldn´t be more happy with her! Her testimony is incredible! We went to go visit with her and she said she had been talking to her neighbor about the church and that we should go visit her right then! so we went with Rosa to visit her neighbor and good friend Mercedes. Mercedes loves the gospel! We´ve had 2 lessons with her and she already has a date to be baptized in February. When we asked her if she´d read the Book of Mormon she said ¨Well ya! If i´m gonna get baptized in February i´ve gotta complete those commitments!¨ ahhh i was so happy! 
Hermana Rosa and Mercedes

I hope you all have an amazing week! 
Jesus Christ lives.
The Book of Mormon is true.
and the mission is the best thing in the whole wide world!
lots of loves!
Hermana Smoot
