I have the best family in the whole world! All of your testimonies and your thoughts strengthen me so much!

I love how comfort we find as we read the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. As I read this morning in Alma 31, the last two verses touched my heart

 37 And after that they did separate themselves one from another, taking no thought for themselves what they should eat, or what they should drink, or what they should put on.

 38 And the Lord provided for them that they should hunger not, neither should they thirst; yea, and he also gave them strength, that they should suffer no manner of afflictions,save it were swallowed up in the joy of Christ. Now this was according to the prayer of Alma; and this because he prayed in faith.

The Lord really does take care of us. There isn't anything that we could ever do or anything that could ever happen to us that Christ hasn already paid for. All the wrongs will be made right and we will be filled with an overwhelming joy. We can even feel this joy now as we ponder about the Plan of Salvation and how perfect it really is. What makes me happiest is knowing that I get to be with all of you forever. :)

I think of and pray for all of you every day! Thank you for being so wonderful.

Love, Hermana Robinson

P.S. A kitty.

I found out that one of my bff's here in the mission, Hermana Bruneel, is related to us. She's from Moses Lake and thinks her parents know Craig's parents. Small world, right?

This is one of the few dogs here in Argentina that I feel comfortable touching... :)

Half way there! - 3/2/2015


Thank you so much for the photos and the stories you have sent to me! I have greatly enjoyed them :) I didn't know Iooked so much like Grandmother Thelda... she's pretty ;)

This week was a good one. We've seen a lot of tender mercies. There's a cute little hermana in our branch that got reactivated a little bit ago and she's the only member of her family. Her family doesn't want anything to do with the church and it's pretty sad because they just poke fun at her all the time. They barely even acknowledge us when we go eat lunch every other week and her husband has never said anything to us except ''Que Dios les bendiga!!!!'' We've been praying a lot with and for her and her family so that they have a change of heart, pretty much since we got here two months ago. This last week she went on vacation but we felt like we needed to stop by and see if her husband was there.

He invited us to sit down and calmly explained to us why he was never going to go to our church. Basically he's just had some special experiences in his own church and feels like he'd be betraying God if he went to a different one. We listened for a little bit and then explained that we didn't want to take those special experiences away from him and that we only wanted to share things that would build his faith even more. Then he could pray and ask God if it was true or not. He kind of stopped us and asked,'' I can ask Him?'' And we were like, ''Yeah!'' He said that they had never told him anything like that in his church and told us ''Ok, I'm gonna do it! What do I have to do?'' We explained, read a couple scriptures, then committed him to baptism. He told us to come back this week to see how it went. It was a neat testimony builder to me that the Lord really does hear prayers and prepares the minds of the people. :)

Thank you so much for keeping me updated on everything! I love you all so much! Oh, and I hit 9 months this week! Time flies, right?

Argentina is pretty and so are we. Also, the circus came to town.



Another transfer has come and gone... and I'm staying in Arroyo Seco! Whooo! Did I tell you before that Messi has a house here? Just saying. I'm hoping to stay here until he comes back from Spain. I will find him and I will baptize him.

I think I learned more in this last transfer than I have my entire mission. Training does that to ya I guess. I've really just had to trust in the Lord to help me and make up for all my weaknesses and we've for sure seen a ton of miracles here. This transfer the four of us hermanas are really determined to establish Zion here in Arroyo Seco. We're setting a lot of goals to work with the members and I know as we do the best we can each day, we'll be able to achieve great things. I'm more determined than ever to give all of myself to my Heavenly Father and Savior- I don't know that I've been so willing up to this point in my mission, but I really want them to change me so that I can be an effective tool in their hands. The power of the Atonement is real and I've seen both parts of it work within myself and in other people, That's the best part of the mission to me, I think. I read a talk the other day that said the Lord needs us to give ALL of us to him. The truth is that even when we give all we have, we'll always come up short. But if we give everything then his grace will make up the difference and that's when we see miracles. :)

I also read another talk this week that I liked a lot and it helped me to know that it's ok to be more bold. It's called  ''The First Vision and Religious Tolerance'' and ''Two Churches Only'' by Joseph Fielding McKonkie. Look it up, it's good!  It has a little bit to do with what y'all said last week :) Love you all!

P.S. I finally broke down and bought my Argentine house dress. I wore it allll day.

Flirt to convert

Don't mind if I doo..


I love everybody's thoughts on the Atonement! I've been thinking about that a lot too, lately and really want to apply it even more in my life. It's been really humbling and also very awesome to see the power of the Atonement take a greater part in my life over the last 8 months (can ya believe it's been 8 months already?!).

To be honest, this was a week of ups and downs. Our cute menos activa family told us they didn't want to go to church anymore just because they're so busy and have no time for anything. It was really disappointing and I think that was the first time the I felt really sad after someone 'dropped' us. In a weird way it was kind of a tender mercy to me because I began to realize just how much I love these people and I'm beginning to understand more fully why I want to be here. I was also worried because I wondered if it were my fault, or if there was something I should or shouldn´t have said. I thought about all our visits with them and played it all back in my mind and a big feeling of peace came over me and I knew that I had done the best I could. We all have our agency and there's nothing I can do except keep praying for them. I haven't lost all hope, nor have I given up on them. We will just be very prayerful about how we approach things with them in the future. The truth is that Satan is working really hard on all the members in our area. The branch is so close to becoming a ward and Satan sure doesn't want that. Luckily, the 4 of us are working really hard to keep things going forward. Also, on the bright side, we've found lots of really great people lately and they're even coming to church! Count ya blessings.

Today was a really fun day. As a district we went to the Monument of Flags here in Rosario.. it was the first time that I've really been in the city and got to walk around and sight see. It is SO beautiful here! :)

I love you all so very much! Have a wonderful week, my dears.

Oh BTW I cut my hair. A member did it and basically pulled Mulan and cut it strait across. So I'm kinda rockin the triangle look but it'll grow back, right?
