It’s  my last transfer and I’m well I don’t know I how I feel right now. I’ve heard rumors that I have transfers and that makes me really sad. I just want to find out!! I think they will call us in the night. I really just want to stay in C  with hna Ordoñez but we will see what the Lord says…
This week we have seen literal miracles. FIRST, E IS GOING TO GET BAPTIZED!!!!! she said yes and its the best thing in the world. I cannot  explain to you the change that she has had. She is a different person, more confident, happier, she has light in her eyes now. It’s  amazing to see this change. And she is so excited to get baptized. And really she is a person that is truly converted. She is experiencing the joy of the gospel.
BUT with all good amazing miracles we have to fight satanas. So the husband of Elvira, Roni has started to change. He at first was like why would YOU go to a church?? don’t you know how you act? but now he is telling her we will go to church together and really if all that the hermanas are telling us is true our lives are going to change. He came to church and felt the spirit and really is making changes. But satan, in the form of his buddy, came in sunday morning, took away his desire to go to church that day and he just left the house and went drinking with his friends. Elvira came home to find them drunk and she kicked the friends out and just cried because she felt like she had been lied to by him. But being the amazing woman that she is she says the thing that gives her hope is what the bishop’s wife told her about their conversion story (a very similar situatuion). Now they aren’t married so they need to get married to be baptized but with this situation we don’t know about a wedding. Elvira told us if i cant get baptized right now im not going to leave the church. I’m never going to sop going why would i do that? ELVIRA IS AMAZING: Hna Ordoñez and i have faith and hope that we have a wedding and a baptism this Saturday. Satan is fighting hard but we are going to fight harder and do all that we can to pull this off. I know God will help us. Miracles exist. God’s  power is way bigger than Satan’s power. ITS WEDDING TIME AND BAPTISM TIME:
The mission is literally the best thing in the world. And the gospel of Jesus Christ is even better.

This week was an amazing week. First of all was all the miracles with hna E. She is such an amazing woman. She has a desire to learn and become better but she also has a lot of fears. But this week we have seen her shed a lot of her fears. We went to invite her to an activity thursday and her husband wasn’t home and she couldnt call and tell him she was going to leave. Normally she would have stayed home in fear of her husband but instead she was like NOPE im going. and she went and it was amazing. Then we were able to teach her husband and he prayed at the end and started crying. He told us that he felt something amazing in his heart and earlier in the lesson he was all maybe if i have time I’lol come to church but after that prayer he told us Hermanas we are all going to church tomorrow. AND THEY ALL CAME. It was beautiful. We felt like crying. Even their kids stayed quiet in the sacrament meeting. The gospel really changes lives and makes us into better people. We really did nothing to change either of them. they are changing because they have found the true gospel.
C came to church and to 3 church activities this week. He is still a bit hesitant but he accepted to get baptized the 4 of March. He really is a miracle.
On saturday was the conference with Elder Rasband. It was an amazing conference full of the spirit. it was such a priveledge to listen to him and to learn from him. We all felt the love of christ for us that he taught and the importance of our calling. It was an unforgettable experience.

This week was a great week!! We have had some amazing lessons with amazing people. The twins, Y and S came to church again and want to get baptized. we are waiting for ´permission. I dont really understand what changed them and what made them have the desire to get baptized again but they do. And I’m excited. Its clearly a miracle from God because there is absolutely no other explanation.
We met this couple E and I who have been to the church in Mexico before. E has a past and really whats to be better. He is really showing a desire to repent. When we first met him he just talked and talked and talked but now he listens and asks questions that show that he is ready to repent.
We met C while looking for a different investigator. The other investigator wasn’t home but C sat us down and just started to tell us his life story. We listened to him talk and then testified about Christ and the importance of going to a church. He told us I feel something in my heart that I’ve never felt before. Ever since I stopped going to church I don’t like listening to the word of God nor do I want to go to church. But I want to go to church with you guys and I feel something different. He is someone ready for the gospel who was looking for it!
E is a mom who doesn’t go to a church but wants to go. Sometimes she changes her mind because of her fears and the things other people say. But she came to church this Sunday. It was a miracle. She loved the church and is praying about baptism. She still has fears but she is moving forward. Her husband is even reading the Book of Mormon with her.
D  is still doing well. She had HUGE problems with her family this week. They really don’t treat her well or like she has any worth. She is struggling with that but we are trying to help her. The gospel is the answer to all of her problems.
we went to the waterfall again today!!!
I got my Christmas package.
There was a new street that they opened (the street that we live on) and there was a HUGE party sunday afternoon and night with a concert, bbq and dancing.
