September 26, 2016 - Week 66


Hey whats up ya´ll !! How is errybody going with school and work and everything? We are now officially in fall right? Big shout out to all the pumpkin flavored sweets that will be eaten in these weeks. It sounds like Matt´s surgery went well. That's super cool that the ward, and his family and friends could all give him and his fam a lot of support in a moment where I'm sure it is much needed. Definitely some blessing for them living such great lives. 

So this week was really great, to start, Diana and Alejandra were both baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday! They were both really happy as were we and the rest of the ward that was supporting them. Its always a race trying to get everything prepared for a baptism, usually with very little time. It can be stressful finding clothes, cleaning and filling the font, making programs, inviting people, and doing interviews. All things that the missionaries have to do here haha. Then on Friday, in the middle of the craziness, there were a few other wards in our zone that were preparing an activity and needed us to hunt down a bunch of stuff last minute. So it got pretty hectic but at the end it all worked out and all parties were very happy. But the happiness makes it all worth it at the end !! Rosario and Yered were also able to attend the services and are preparing for their baptisms on Saturday. So we are fully prepared for another week of busy preparations, but lots of joy at the end of it!!

As far as the other investigators that are doing really well... We have this family we are teaching, that is Rosario and Lupita and their 2 daughters. They're both really smart and enjoy talking with us. We told them about general conference this week after teaching them about living day prophets and they seemed very interested at hearing what the prophet and apostles have to say. Really I think that this is one of the best 4 weekends in the entire mission because of general conference. I really have been counting down the days since the last one 6 months ago. A blessing that I never realized back when I was at home, but I did realize that the homemade cinnamon rolls were a blessing now that I don't get to eat them while watching GC. haha.

So how do you feel, all your children will now officially be 18. You got them out of childhood, and without any of us being arrested. (That you know of) I'll see if I can't get a felony now when it counts being an adult ;) No but in all seriousness, you've done a fantastic job as a mother. I notice it now more than ever being far away from you and although I could never thank you for that, I want you to know I am sooo grateful for you and dad. I love you both very much. Also very happy 18 th to Alyssa, go live it up kid and get ready for the next one back at BYU!! Well I love you all so much, have a great week!
