Hey all! ok i finally have a few minutes to write an update!!!!!

I am LOVING the mission!!! Nothing new there. Its my second transfer in this area and with my same companion, Hermana Jimenez. We have a ton of unity and we love teaching together, sometimes before i can say something she  says the exact thing I was about to say, the Spirit is truly working through us to testify to the people here!!! What a blessing.
The two sisters :)
David is coming up on a month as a member?!?!?! wHoA! His baptism was so amazing. First, he was SUPER nervous ! We put on the program at the very end 'testimony' because here, often the person who gets baptized gives a short little testimony about how they feel, but he told us he thought he might be too nervous, so we didnt put his name, just 'testimony'. well, as we were about to end the baptismal service he was waving his hand at us. oblivious, we smiled and waved back HAHAH, then we realized OH he wants to get up and say something. his testimony was so full of conviction, i had tears streaming down my face. he bore his testimony about everything from changing his life to live the Word of Wisdom, to how all the people he thought were his friends have abandoned him but that the people in teh church have welcomed him with open arms!!!!  He is still doing great and we talked to him yesterday about doing family history work, which reminds me

THIS MONTH the MEXICO CITY TEMPLE (closest one to puebla) is having their doors open for 3 weeks, followed by t he RE DEDICATION!!! the faithful saints here have been waiting over a year for the remodel to be finished. they currently drive hours to get to another one. it is so cool being able to invite everyone that we visit (be it members or non members) to take advantage of this opportunity and see the inside of the temple and feel the peace that surrounds us there!!!! and how great that after september itll be so much closer when the ward does temple trips. man did i take for granted all the temples in utah!!!

we also brought a less active member to the family history center, i was so stoked about it! its a 70 year old cute grandpa , we helped him make his family tree on FamilySearch but he got excited about looking for some documents so he can find more information. i love the family history center here in our stake center, the computer had a slideshow of all the temples in the world and when i saw the Draper temple i just couldnt believe that a little over a year ago I went there for the first time!!! I really miss going to the temple!! I hope you all can take advantage of how close we are to them and GO! RUN TO THE TEMPLE HAHA!

We have another investigator with a baptism date named Luis. Hes a rough around the edges mechanic  who has completely taken us by surprise with his change of attitude. he went from not even wanting to see us in his house to waking up to get to our church services that start at 8 every Sunday....sometimes the investigators just blow me away. 

Well theres so much more but thats all i have time for!!!! I love you all and it makes me happy to see your smiling faces!!!!

Hermana Besttttt
