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 awesome.  :D 

I wanted to wish all of you wonderful mothers a Happy Mother´s Day from Mexico. ♥ I hope that all of you had a very special day, and that your kids spoiled you :) I am so grateful for my mom, and all that she´s taught me. For always being my cheerleader and my best friend.  For late night talks, and laughing until tears of happiness streamed down our faces. Thank you mom, I love you so much :) 

I am also grateful for my stepmom, Ladale and for all that she's taught me. Thank you for teaching me how to make white chili and for all of our fun activities on the ranch. I hope all of you mothers had a wonderful day, and hope you know how much I love each of you :) Thank you for your examples, and for your love and support. Thank you all for fulfilling your divine role as a mother, and for teaching us and raising us. You have made us who we are, and we cannot express our gratitude enough. 

I hope all of you have a wonderful week. Celebrate your mothers everyday, and not only one day in the year :)

Love you all so much!!

7.3.17 - Independence Day

Hello Everybody! 

These last couple of weeks have been pretty great, and super busy.  We're still tryin to get to know our area-it's pretty big haha. But it is super beautiful here, and I love it. LOVE IT. Tezoyuca is incredible, and super green.  Basically it's the greatest. 
We had our Conference this last week and it was wonderful.  The Spirit was super strong and I am loving being a missionary. I have learned so many things, and especially the last few weeks as a trainer, I feel like I've learned even more.  My testimony and love for missionary work continues to grow, and I am more and more grateful each day for the opportunity to be here.  We have challenges, but we grow so much more from them, and always come out on top. It has been an incredible process for me to see how much my companion, Sister Diaz is already progressing in her testimonies and being.  She was already an incredible young woman when she came, but now, and with each week, she continues to grow i…

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 …

2.20.17 - Come What May and Love It

Hello Everyone! 

This past week was pretty awesome, as every week has been :) The mission is great and I love it so much here. This past week we had interviews with President Avila and his sweet wife. I love them so much. The interviews are always getting better because I understand Spanish more and more each time, and it's just awesome.  With Hermana Avila, she asked us to imagine ourselves as investigators and think about our progress (but as missionaries). How are you progressing? What changes have you made? How are you using the Atonement of Christ everyday in your life? How have you improved? As I thought about these questions, I thought about the past few months here in Mexico and my experiences as a missionary... I want to invite all of you to ask yourselves these questions, and think about your personal progression as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  I promise that the Spirit will testify to your heart as it did to mine.  I felt the love Heavenly Father has for me, and how he w…
