Hi everyone! How's it been?
On Monday (13th November 2017) it rained so hard and I loved it! :D The best thing of the day was the Family Home Evening Night with our date! It was so spiritual and so amazing. We were all really keyed in on the Spirit, and I just loved hearing the goals that the family and our date had to keep the Sabbath Day holy. Reading the scriptures. Spending time with family. Learning the hymns better. Seeing things with an eye of gratitude instead of pitying the day. :) It was so nice!
On Tuesday (14th November 2017) I lost my USBs right after organizing them and getting all of photos on them :( To say the least, I was a very angry missionary XD but we had an amazing lesson with our date, who just totally ate it up. And then our friends from our restaurant gave us free milkshakes. That's one way to cheer me up :) Then, we headed to the other hna's house to spend the night because the next day, we were heading to zone conference.
On Wednesday (15th November 2017) we headed out at 9 o'clock in the morning for zone conference, and it was honestly the weirdest and most emotional day I've had in a very long time. XD One minute you're okay, then President starts choosing "volunteers" and your blood pressure suddenly rises to a deathly rate. But it was really good, and honestly, the best part of it all was my interview. I was able to see the love God has for me and the love that President has for me. He told me that I am an asset to the mission and that I'm hitting my prime. I really appreciated that, because up until now (even now XD) I've felt like, maybe my mission has been a total failure and that I've only wasted God's time and my/my family's money being out here. But he helped me realize the reality of my situation and my mission, and honestly, his help has changed my entire perspective about my mission. :) It was honestly the best day ever. It was funny too, because during the entire interview, he mentioned that I had transfers 4-5 times, but I never really thought to ask. So at the end, "Well, do you want to know where you're going or not?" XD So, he told me that I was headed to Emiliano Zapata in Tabasco with Hna Sanchez (Wilson, yep! Hna Sanchez from my training! Woot!) So . . . that's where I am right now XD Surprise! They closed Oluta, which means they took out sisters and gave it to the elders. :)
On Thursday (16th November 2017) we had our baptism interview! And I found out that Elder Baugh knows about my blog from his mom! XD I died SO HARD. I could not believe that people know about my blog. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, I have a list of some people that I send this email out personally to. The rest heads to an email that directs this email to a blog, so that people from facebook and whatnot can see it. But, never in my life did I imagine that someone outside of my knowledge was reading it! XD Then, as I freaked out, Elder Peterson told me that he read it too! Do you know how much that freaks me out!? People know more about my mission than I do! XD Anyway, I freaked out, but our date passed his "test"! And during the lesson before, he started asking about the temple. I died all over the place.
On Friday (17th November 2017) our day was filled with blessings. :) It was amazing. We spent the day getting everything ready for the baptism. We headed out to the church in Acayucan, but it was locked and the sisters were super far away. So, we waited for them to finish their appointment before heading out to meet them half way for the keys. BUT a bishop randomly showed up out of no where, so we didn't have to! Then, we got all dressed to clean the font, but it was already full of water and clean! So, we made the poster XD And ten, we were waiting for a bus to drive by, but it took forever, so Hna Palomares wanted to head out towards a store to see if it would show up there, but I got distracted by the alligators. XD BUT, it was revelation because the tardiness brought the bus. ;) Super duper blessed. And my studies were awesome that day! I realized just how much God loves us. We each have a special place in His heart, and He wants to help and protect us. He is our Father, and I just think that is so amazing, especially when I think of the relationship I have with my dad here on earth. To think that that love is 10x stronger and more in my Heavenly Father just blows me away, especially where I'm such an imperfect and rebelious daughter.
On Saturday (18th November 2017) we had our baptism! We spent the day getting the house ready and the areabook ready for the elders. We headed out to eat and I had crab legs :) It was so good that I didn't realize how intense I'd been eating until I washed my hands and put lemon on my hands to take away the fish smell, and I realized that I'd cut my finger XD Then, we headed out for the baptism! On the way, there was a butterfly on my window, so I shooed it away to get it out the window. Hna Palomares and I were cheering it on and shooing it out, until it left! And then, it flew by our window again to say goodbye. :) warmed my heart. THEN WE HAD AN AWESOME BAPTISM! Just the best thing ever. :) ugh, best day ever. That's a lie. Sunday was the best ;) We received legitamately our transfers that night. I was headed to Zapata with Hna Sanchez and Hna Palomares to Coatza with Hna Castaneda.
On Sunday (19th November 2017) we gave our goodbye talks, and I can't tell you how awesome it is to just speak by the Spirit without notes. Just letting it come to you and spill out of your mouth is the best feeling ever. :) Our date got confirmed and I was just so happy! Then, we headed to Acayucan to pick up Hna Navarro because her companion already left to go home! :) And when we came back, I heard the most wonderful words exist our date's mouth. "Yeah, my goal is to become a better person, and to accomplish that, I'm going to keep coming to church, and then I'm going to go to the temple. And I'm preparing myself to go on a mission." I cried! Not really, but I was super happy. I screamed. XD Then, we went about telling people about our transfers and saying goodbye. The hardest was at the restaurant. We walked up and there they were, with a cake. Gosh, I hate surprises because then I cry. So we walked up and I saw it and instantly turned to walk down the street and cry. I couldn't go in for like 5 minutes. XD I just couldn't handle it. They had a mariachi band play for us and we ate cake because we weren't going to spend our birthdays/Christmas with them. And then, our date showed up and wrote us notes! DX Tears everywhere! Literally the best day ever :)
And today, our date showed up at the ADO to help us with our bags at 4:00 in the morning. WHO DOES THAT!? Anyway, I love you guys so much. I don't have much more time, but I want you all to know that I have a testimony of God's love for His children. I have a testimony that His Son lives, and that through Him, I can be a better person every day :) Loves!
