1. So first thing first.. CRAZY STORYY!!!!!! READ THIS ONE FIRST PLEASE!!
In Maestranza in San Bernardo Sur.. I was walking with my companions.. and it was about 8pm.. I was thinking about the members in Maestranza and how I need to meet them, and get to know the sector.. I only had a week over there.. and I was liking the place quite a bit. All of the sudden.. I get a call from the President. He asked me how I was doing.. and I told him I was okay and working. He then told me “Well, Hermana Ricks. You are going back to San Miguel.” My jaw dropped. I was extremely surprised. I asked him, “When??” He told me “Tomorrow.” I had a heart attack. Oh and one more thing. I am going to be training a mini-missionary. WHAAAT??? So I had one stressful day on Monday. I packed all my things in less than an hour and I had interviews with the president.. then i was stuck in the office from 9 am- 5 pm. I about died. SO HERE I AM!! I AM BACK IN SAN MIGUELL!!!
My new companion is from San Miguel.. in the same barrio we are serving. Her name is Hermana Retamales and is 21 years old. She is almost done with her papers.. and she really wants to serve a mission. I am training her exactly how new missionaries are trained. This is going to be a very exciting 3-5 weeks. I have no idea how long I am going to be training her. I heard for 3 weeks.. or for the rest of the change. So.. I don´t know if I am going back to San Bernardo, or I am going to be staying here.
Elder Real (district leader) and Elder Cheney(Zone leader) worked extremely hard to get me back. Apparently, they told the whole zone to look for a possible mini missionary so I can come back to San Miguel. The missionaries told me they looked all week for people.. and they finally found H. Retamales. Elder Real got sick from so much stress. When I came to the activity of the zone today, the missionaries cheered. It made me feel good. I had no idea that all of this was going on.. actually.. I was the LAST PERSON to know that I was going back to San Miguel. CRAZY HUH? Anyway, I am very happy to be here again.
