WOWZERS I am pretty sure someone pushed a fast forward button on my life because time is just disappearing! It was a really great and busy week! 
Awesome moment number one: on tuesday Margarita invited us over for dinner and the food was delicious but aside from that, she told us of an experience she had with the book of mormon. She said that the other day she was trying to go to bed but she just couldn't fall asleep, things are always a little hard in the winter for those that work in the fields and she was thinking about that and wasn't able to fall asleep so she decided to pull out her book of mormon and read. She said that the moment she started reading she just felt so much peace and was no longer worried about anything, she knew that Heavenly Father would take care of her. She was so excited to tell us about that experience because she had a deep personal experience with the book of mormon and she had heard about other people having experiences like that but it was just really special for her to experience it on her own. 
Awesome moment number two: We were able to have a lesson with the second Renteria family and Yaneth and Maribel came with us. Those two oh my goodness, they are just the greatest. They bore their testimonies and cleared up some concerns and doubts that the Renterias had. It was such a blessing to be able to see them bear testimony, I am just amazed every time we are with them to see the growth in each of them.
Awesome moment number three: We were talking about Yaneth and Maribels parents and we felt like we wanted to fast for them on sunday and we thought it would be super cool if Yaneth and Maribel fasted with us. So we called them up and asked if they would like to. They were so excited because neither of them have fasted yet and what better way to start than fasting for your parents. They were so cute they called us saturday night and asked if we could pray together to start our fast. I just can't get over how much light they have in their eyes and how brave they are.
Awesome moment number four: We were invited to the mission home to help plan zone conference and were expecting to have a meeting of some sort, but when we got there they told us that we would be role playing, or practicing teaching. They split us off into groups and we began. It was so great!! We were able to work on teaching people and not just lessons because it seems to be something that all of us struggle with to some extent or another. We had the coolest revelatory experience and hermana bland and I haven't been teaching the same since. It is interesting because sometimes we think we are teaching people and not just lessons but really what we do is just make the lesson about them and not really for them. We are so excited for zone conference this week for all of the missionaries to experience what we were able to experience! 
Awesome moment number 482: The lesson in relief society yesterday was on missionary work. Irma bore her testimony about how much the gospel has blessed her life and how she just wishes everyone could be as happy as she is. Definitely started crying because she is just so amazing!!!!!! 
Awesome moment number 7235: So yesterday we were fasting and before we went to dinner we were talking about how cool it would be if they gave us breakfast food for dinner..... then we walk in and the sister that we were eating with was like I hope you like breakfast for dinner because we scones and honeybutter! Heavenly Father loves us. 
As you can tell it was a pretty awesome week. The church is so true and we are finding amazing people every day. I love you all, thank you for all the love and support you have given me and continue to give me each day :)
con mucho amor
