Hi All!  So this is officially my first post on my blog and my first post as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  So let me give ya'll a little bit of background info.  Serving a mission was the last thing I thought I would ever choose to do -- especially at 25...  But I'm so excited to see how I can share my love of the gospel with others!

I'm currently serving in Mesa, AZ and I'm speaking Spanish!  Such a tender mercy, considering I was dying to go to Argentina.  My family is from there!  My great-grandparents, Emilio & Donato Gianfelice, were actually the first converts to the LDS church from South America!  Talk about a legacy!  But yeah, Heavenly Father knows me too well and knew I would love learning Spanish.

You know what, missions are hard.  Sometimes I am frustrated and sometimes I question what I am doing.  That's real life, ya know?  But I love my Savior and I love this gospel.  I know how much God loves each and every one of us and I am SO excited to share that love with others!  So follow along, message me with any questions you might have, and let's enjoy this ride of a lifetime.  I know I'll be learning lots and I hope that you can too.


xoxo,
