Dec. 14, 2009

Hello Family,

Hey can you believe that there is only 12 more days until Christmas and I would like you all to know that I have gotten all my packages and I have not opened them yet. So just know that I have them...Mom and Becky.

OK well on with the news....This month is full of miracles. WE had a baptism... Daniel was baptized on Saturday the 12th, and he is so happy. He told me afterwards “Thanks Hermana for everything" It just made me so happy because he was so happy. Yeah!!! His cousin Jose will be getting baptized this month as well. He had a date for this Saturday 19th but he couldn't come to church because of work so we will have to push it back a week. But he will do it.

Also we had a Christmas concert this week. A choir of missionaries sang Friday- Sunday. It was fun and you could feel the spirit really strong. I was in two quartets one in Spanish and the other in English (great fun) we sang in Kentucky two days and then in Tennessee. Also we sang in two malls and the Opry Land Hotel. That thing is HUGE!!!!!! I will have to send pictures. OK, well transfers are Tomorrow and we all knew I would be training (become a mom-in missionary terms). I will be moving back to my old apt. with the family Linares and training in that area. BUT... my old companion sister Taft got sick and they are not sure what is wrong so she can't train. So… yes, you should know where this is going. I am going to be the proud mother of TWINS!!!!!!! I know, I was just as shocked as you are right now. I don't know what the Lord is thinking but I am going for it.

President called me and said Sister Hegerhorst... I need your help. I am leaving you in Nashville and Sister Gasca (she has 2 transfers left then she goes home) is moving to Franklin (my old area) and my heart tells me to put two sisters with you. I was like ok... wow... what... I don't know what to say. But he said how do you feel, I don't want to over pack you with things. But I just feel they need to go there. So yep I don't know why but something is planned for me. I am training for the first time but I am training 2 sisters. I don't know anything about them, but yea!! It is going to be an experience and I am going to need all of your prayers. This is the first time in the mission that some one has trained two people at once and I am the lucky one. Pray for me!!!

I know I will have the help of the Lord as well as the family Linares, and the ward. Oh yeah, I will also be covering two areas but mostly mine with a couple of days a week in the other area. I don't know the other area very well so it will be like white washing and training. What did I get myself into... oh I can do it RIGHT?

Other then that everything has been really crazy I have not had a bed for about 3 days I have been sleeping on the floor but hopefully things will calm down now as I begin to train. Or maybe things were just getting me prepared for what is coming.

I don't know much about calling home only that I get to on Christmas and we can use our cell phones so I will be calling you. I am pretty sure, Becky and Stewart that I can call you but I will let you know for sure next week. But think of times that would be best and tell me next week and I will tell you what is best for me out of them. I am excited very very excited to talk to my family. I love you all so much and miss you tons. Have a great week sorry this is short but I don't have time. I am packing and not in my area and things are crazy. Also I don't know if I will get a letter written today so if I don't sorry but I will get your package sent off mom. I love you tons Have a great week and I will let you know more next week. Happy 12 days before Christmas!
