April 25, 2016

Hello one and all! As always, it has been an exciting few weeks here in Mexico!

-Last Monday we went to visit a reference from the zone leaders, but the man we were looking for didn't live there. Instead, his sister with her husband and her son live there and they are SUPER interested in the gospel! They came to church yesterday and loved it! They have already been way good about keeping their commitments and they're preparing to be baptized May 28th. Such a blessing!
-This week we also had interviews with President and it's always good to hear from him and get new insight on how to help our investigators.
-The elders in our ward had two baptisms this weekend and the service was beautiful! And we got the elders to perform a special musical number so that was exciting!
-On Saturday the sister training leaders in our zone decided to do a big activity for the "día del niño" (why don't we have a Kid's Daya a.k.a. birthday round 2 in America?) to find new investigators and it was way fun! Here we are after it ended:
-Yesterday we ate with our ward mision leader and his family (tacos--YUM) and his sons play cello and violin so we had a sweet hymn jam sesh with them. They're seriously the best family ever.
-Also yesterday the stake president visited our ward and well...this stake struggles a little bit when it comes to helping the missionaries, so he had us stand in front of the whole ward, then had all the return missionaries stand, then had everyone who had ever received a lesson from the missionaries stand, until everyone was standing. Then he spoke about how all of us have felt the influence of missionary work in our own lives so now it's time to do our part. Super powerful and we've already seen the effects of his talk. Puro poder.
-This morning my comp and I were looking through some things in our house and found HUNDREDS of Liahona magazines and I realized that I LOVE reading the Liahona. If you don't already have a subscription to the Ensign/New Era/Friend or the Liahona, DO IT THIS WEEK! The messages are so uplifting and just the best!

Espero que todos tengan una semana excelente y tomen el tiempo para compartir el evangelio. Les amo mucho!!
