Hey!   :)
This week was a good week for me! I really enjoyed it! To start off the week we didn't have PDay like normal because we went to the Temple on Thursday. On Monday we just had lessons like normal! It was good. We didn't have a ton of lessons but it was a good day. On Tuesday we had our district meeting and then the zone leaders came to our area to check out the apartments we were looking at. We went to the one we wanted first because it was brad new and super pretty but they said we couldn't have it so we went to the other one that we had never seen ourselves. It looked like crap... It was so sad looking on the inside. The lady had not moved out yet and the place was trashed. The walls were just full of drawings from kids and it stunk but the zone leaders loved it haha so that's one we got! haha I was a little ticked off because I did not want to live there. Anyways we went about our work and had a couple lessons to finish off the day. On Wednesday we went to the Zone leaders area to help them move. They have a huge apartment they moved into. We helped them carry lots of boxes. They had a on of stuff. It was a lot of work to carry all their stuff like 2.5 blocks. It was good though. On Thursday we got to go to the Temple!!!! It was the best. Our zone leaders were really worried about us not getting there on time so we left at 8, waited for them until 9.... and then got to the temple about 9:30. Our session did not start until 12:45.... haha but we got to spend some time talking to President Boswell and his wife. We got done with our session about 3:30 and the Temple cafeteria was closed so we went to Totus, which is like a Walmart, and bought a pizza that was terrible and some fries and Chicha Morado which was delicious. Chicha Morado is the purple corn drink! We made it back to our area about 6:30 and had one lesson. On Friday we had a pretty good day! We had 5 lessons! It was awesome! Saturday was a crazy day though! We woke up and moved all our stuff out of our rooms so we could take it to our new apartment. We ate and then went to our new apartment to move the lady out so we could paint and move in. Man it was a lot of work. We had a member helping us and 4 other missionaries besides us 4. Anyways we got her moved out and then while some were painting we moved most of our stuff over and put it outside. (I just want you to imagine what it must look like to see 4 missionaries carrying mattresses, suitcases, boxes, drawers full of clothes, ect. down main street) haha it was awesome! Anyways we got the room painted and cleaned and our things moved in by about 3:30 in the afternoon... and then we ate lunch and started our fast! Now that we have everything cleaned up and painted (if you could call it painted) I really love our new apartment! The best part is that the roof doesn't leak and we all get our own bed! How lovely! and we have hot water! It's the best! Sunday was good as well. We ate lots of food and had one lesson haha.

I finally finished my study about the Tree of Life vision this week! There is so much stuff to study there! My testimony is growing so much! I'm not sure if my Spanish is any better yet all I know is that it's not very good. We have 3 people with baptisimal dates! That's awesome! I can see our investigators changing and feeling the spirit in every lesson! It's the best feeling see the change and come to church! We are working with one family and one lady named Yeimi Zavala! She is so awesome and she can accept a baptism date here soon! We also have this one kid who is 12 who is super awesome! His dad contacted us in the street when we were passing his house one day and his dad used to go to church but then moved and never got baptized. Now his son, Luis, is ready! Man he is so prepared. His dad gave him a Gospel Principles book and he had been reading it before we started visiting him! He knew everything basically about the Resurrection and about a ton of stuff, and he is only 12. When we teach him I forget so easily that he is 12 because he understands everything so well! We teach him like he was a 20 year old guy! Man!! It's the best!

Well, I Love You All!!! Keep up the good work! Love you! Always pray, read and have FHE!
