For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

Week 74

Hola buenas días! 
We have been having many adventures and meeting many new people! We have a perfect area to work there are so many Hispanics here! This last transfer is so busy and the time is flying by there is never a normal day always something special we are doing or need to do! I am making the most of each day! I love to be a missionary. It is something so special. This week a stake president looked at us with tears in his eyes and said "I hope you know who you are." Representatives of the lord Jesus Christ. This is an opportunity that never comes again and I am truly grateful for every day.
By small and simple things great things are brought to pass,

Week 73

Hola! Las días pasan rápidas! Aproveche! 
It has been a crazy week but God is with me and he has been strengthing me and I feel peace and happiness when normally I couldn't. I love being a missionary. God is changing me each day, and has blessed me with many people around me to help and guide me. The missionary work is great I have been getting splits every night and have been with all the members 24/7 because Hermana estrada has been injured. Good things are happening and God is pouring out his spirit on us. Stay strong! 
Dios es grande y cerca,

Week 72

Paulina and Adrian's Baptism!

Muy Buenas Dias!!!!!
The work is going great and really picking up! We have been finding so many new big Hispanic families! Three new big families this week! Having a car has really been helping especially with Hermana estrada and her injury. Paulina and Adrian were finally baptized on Saturday! They are so happy and we had four investigators at the baptism! The parents have not been baptized yet because they are not married but they want to be married and we have already given them the license papers! We have a family home evening with them and a member family tomorrow night!  We are excited about the work and next transfer! The lord has been blessing us with many miracles. We had kept thinking of a certain street that we should knock there and we finally went and the very first door that we knocked was a super cool Hispanic family and there is ten people who live there and we taught them all and we invited them all to be baptized! They are super interested and we are so excited to teach them! We are having so much fun! Transfers is today! We are almost sure we are both staying here in mount Lewis with the fonsecas but we find out in an hour! Time goes really fast so make the most of each opportunity God gives you.

Week 71

General Conference was super refreshing and empowering! I was able to go to two sessions in the conference center and the spirit was so strong. I am grateful for Thomas S. Monson the prophet today and I know that he is a man of God and His prophet in our day. 
The missionary life is a great one as always! Paulina and Adrian are finally getting baptized on Saturday and they are so excited! 
Hermana Estrada has hurt her ankle and the doctor says she cannot walk for 6 weeks. She has been super sad about it and she really wants to do missionary work but it has been pretty slow this week because we are always waiting on rides. I think they are going to be giving us a car soon so that will help with the work a lot but we are trying our best to stay positive and to make the most of it. I am changing a lot and I feel very good about it. I feel God's strength with me and changing me. I want to be like him. 
He loves us,

Week 70

Last night we were knocking doors and a dog started to follow us after a while it finally left us and when we knocked the next door the lady opened the next door and the dog ran inside and the lady looked so scared and yelled "que es!?" (What is it!?) and she ran outside and slammed the door and it locked her out. So the dog was locked in her house and she was locked out. Her little brother was in the house but in her room so we were trying to climb up to the window to knock on it because he wouldn't answer the door. We went and told the neighbors their dog was locked in their neighbors house and it was a fun night starting there the good news is we got a teaching appointment out of it! If this family ends up getting baptized we will have such a good story of how we met them! 
It has been such a crazy week with Paulina and adrian the ones who were suppose to be baptized on Saturday the mom the day before changed her mind and said that she wants them to wait until week until they know more and are more prepared so Paulina and Adrian were so sad that they couldn't be baptized and they were begging but the good thing is that the mom is going to stop working and now she wants to take the lessons too so we will be teaching the whole family yay! 
Everything has been going great and we are having lots of fun! I am so excited for general conference next week! I know there is a living prophet of God on the earth today, Thomas S. Monson, and I am so excited to hear Gods words to us.
