Puerto Rico San Juan

On September 14, 2013 I received my call to serve as a Mission Nurse Specialist in the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission for a period of 18 months. I am always up for a new adventure and look forward to sharing my journey with you.

MTC Companions
   Pictured are my MTC companions, Sisters Steadman and Cisneros.  We have had a great time.  "Preach My Gospel" training was an amazing experience. We completed that training this afternoon.  I can totally see why all missionaries receive that training even if they have served previous missions.  I have grown so much in my testimony and ability to invite and feel the spirit while teaching.  I have met so many wonderful Senior Missionaries this week and look forward to becoming better acquainted with the Medical Missionaries next week.  
   Tonight, Sisters Steadman, Jenson and I attended a session at the Provo Temple.  We caught the shuttle up, but could barely get into the van since there was no stool and only a HUGE step up.  We walked home since it was all down hill.  It was still quite a hike at 22 degrees F.  It has been about 11 degrees in the AM.  I think I have really acclimated, but will probably be hot in Puerto Rico.  We haven't had any wind or snow.  I found out today that language training is available for 6 months in the mission.  It is conducted by SKYPE with two one hour lessons per week and an hour of individual study each day.  I am anxious to get started with Spanish.  Tomorrow is a free day.  The shuttle will pick us up at 1:20 pm to take us to the Residence Inn in Provo for the remainder of our training.  Maybe the Mall and a burger tomorrow?  Had Papa John's Pizza for dinner tonight....missed the cheeseburgers at lunch :o(
