6.12.17 - I'm going to be a mom!!!!

Haha Hello everyone! 
Yes, if all of you are worried about the subject line. It's true. I'm going to be a mom! I'm going to be training a new missionary. I don't know who or when I'm going to meet her, but it's going to be today and I am so excited and nervous. On top of that, I'll be opening an area... which means I have no idea where anything is in the new area haha!  I am seriously so excited though. I am so grateful for the opportunity to teach, but especially to learn! It's going to be so much fun and I can't wait to get started. We're going to be meeting the new missionaries later today and then we'll be headed to our new area. It's called Desayuca... or something like that. Not entirely sure, but it's going to be tons of fun!!!! I've already heard tons of wonderful things about my new area and I can't wait to get started. 
Also, some more exciting news, we had a baptism here this last Saturday and holy smokies it was …

6.5.17 - Sundays are the best days

Don´t have much time to write this week. Sorry everyone haha. We have been running around all day like chickens without their heads. 

I did want to share a couple pictures with you. I bought a cover for my scriptures that is pretty bomb. One of the sisters in the ward made it for me. and I´m pretty super duper happy with it. 
Also, we have two baptisms planned for this week. We are super excited for them!! I´ll be sure to send pictures next week. 
This week we had more investigators at church than we have ever had and I was super happy for that. I´m loving the mission life and the Lord´s work. 
I love you all so much, and I hope you have a wonderful week! Hopefully next week I´ll have more time to write :) 
Love,

5.29.17 - Hey Fam Bam!

Hope all of you are doing great :) 

Mexico is wonderful, and every day it´s a little hotter here hahaha. We are currently waiting for the rain season. :)
This last week has flown. We are finding new people every week, and it is seriously wonderful.  We have a family that is preparing to be baptized this next week or the following week, so we are super excited for them. Since we began teaching them, I have already seen a huge difference in them. There is a new light in their eyes and every time we visit them I just want to cry and hug them because it´s the best thing ever. 
My companion and I are doing wonderfully. We seriously get along super well and it´s the best thing ever. I can finally crack jokes in spanish... well. only with my companion because the only jokes I know are in english and I have to explain a little bit, but she laughs.... even if it is only out of courtesy ;) But truly, we get along great haha :) We´re learning lots from one another, and have tons of fun. 
I have …

5.22.16 - Savior, Redeemer of My Soul

First off, I would like to invite you all to watch and listen to this song. It´s beautiful, and has made a huuuuuge difference in my week.  



This week has been full of just about everything. It has been a roller coaster of a week. haha we started out super great, and we had 5 people ready to be baptized here in the coming couple weeks. We visited two of them, and the mom let us know that they´re going to be moving to Acapulco before their baptismal date. We visited the other two, and they´re going to be moving to no-body-knows-where, and the last one wasn´t able to attend church on Sunday and his date fell. We have continued to visit the first two, and they are so incredibly strong and are doing wonderfully. They attended church and so many prayers were answered with them... Seriously. We are so grateful for them and that they want to be baptized. They´re progressing wonderfully, and the mom said that they´re going to be attending church again this coming week! We´re hoping that they …

6.19.17 - First Week of Training

Well I'm going to consider this week a success. One of the best and most stressful weeks of my life. But I loved every minute of it :D

My new companion is suuuuuper awesome and we get along like peas in a pod. She is from the Dominican Republic and she speaks English :D so I'm pretty happy that I get to practice my English every once and a while. Especially because my brain was forgetting how to talk. I don't know how to explain it .... I can think in English, and write in English, but talking en English has become more difficult than I'd like to admit. but it's fine hahaha :D We practice every once and a while and it's pretty wonderful. 
We are in Tezoyuca and it is super beautiful here. There are tons of trees and the mountains are covered in green. I feel right at home :) The members here are wonderful, and they love visiting investigators with us. So everybody is happy.  
This last week was full of meeting new people, getting to know the area and trying to …

5.15.17 - 6 MONTHS!!!!!!!

Yes everyone, that´s correct. I have SIX MONTHS!!!! And I seriously cannot believe it! Time has flown like you wouldn't believe. I feel like I got here yesterday, and now I¨m already a third of the way through my mission.  They say that after you have six months, 9 months comes super quick, and then the second half of your mission flies. 

I am so grateful for the six months that I have here, and all that I've already learned. I´m excited to see what the next year brings. I love my mission so much and I am so grateful that I´m here. 
This week has been an exceptionally good one. We've been finding lots of new people to teach, and families.  The work is hastening and I¨m so grateful that we get to be a part of it!! LOOOOOVE IT!!! :D
This last week we had an activity for Mother´s Day, and we had soooo many people come. It was awesome! We also had the opportunity to watch a few Mexican dances that were incredible. Hopefully I can upload one of the videos :) It seriously was so…

5.8.17 - He Sends Blessings, He Sends Blessings

Hello All!!!! 

I hope you´re all doing wonderfully and enjoying every day! 
This last week, we had some pretty special experiences. We we´re talking to a less active this last week, who is also a returned missionary, and he gave us some awesome ideas for finding new people, and achieving our goal of a baptism every week.
One of the members of our ward lost her brother this last week in a horrible accident... and when we visited her, her sadness was apparent, but her testimony was shining like a light. I know that my testimony of the Plan of Salvation grew a mile in our visit with her, and I´m so grateful for the knowledge and testimony I have of it.
We´re finding new people each week, and we´re starting to work even more with the ward to keep the work moving forward.
We had a conference with our mission president yesterday about ward counsel and how we can work together better. We also had a change in the number of times our investigators need to attend church before they can be bapti…
