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 keep our stress levels from bursting out of the roof. The area here is super huge... So basically we're trying to get to know 4 cities without getting lost, and trying to remember which bus to take.. or mini bus... or if we have to take a taxi hahaha it seriously is tons of fun. 

We met a toooon of people this week, got to know their needs, and we already have 8 people set for a baptismal date. So that´s pretty niffty.

The investigators here are great, and I think we are going to have a ton of fun here in Tezoyuca :) 

I'll let you all know how the second week goes :) 

This last week we had some pretty awesome experiences, and one of them really made me realize just how much love our Heavenly Father has for each one of us. Sister Diaz was struggling a little bit (as we all do as new missionaries), and we were talking. But as we were talking, I could feel so much love for her, and concern. We went back to the house for a minute, and I invited her to pray. (she had been sharing with me some of her feelings and worries and basically everything and felt impressed for us to go home and let her talk to our Heavenly Father.) We returned, she prayed, and when we left, the spirit was with us so strongly. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father that loves us and is mindful of us. He knows what each of us is going through, and he knows how to help us, we only have to include him in the process. He knows our needs before we ask him, but he will only help us if we ask.  I am so grateful for the power of prayer and that we can communicate with our loving Father in Heaven.

I hope you all have a wonderful week :) 

Love you!!!!

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…

2.15.17 - Hola Amigos!!

Hello everybody!

So sorry I didn´t get a written email sent out last week. It was kind of crazy.  And the time we`re given just flies by haha. We are doing awesome here in good ol Chilpo.  I love my area so much and I love the people. Everyday it`s getting a little bit hotter, and the work just keeps getting better and better. I love getting to serve the Lord at this time, and I love the people I´m serving with.  Just lots of love!! :) And the food is wonderful. hahha at this point, I can handle the spicy foods a lot better than my companion... and she´s from El Salvador. I´m not entirely sure how spicy they like the food there, but she doesn´t like too much spicy here. So that keeps it interesting :)  Oh my heavens, one of the members here makes tacos in the evening for a living and hoooooly smokies. Literally the best tacos I have ever had in my whole life.  SO GOOD. just had to share that with you :)
The past couple of weeks have been wonderful. We´ve been teaching lots of people, …
