June 27, 2016

Hello all! Right now things here are a bit crazy because we're working on a ward talent show as a missionary activity. In this picture, we were about to go out and paint a backdrop that we're making. 

This week we're getting a new mission President! We had to say good-bye to President and Sister Hall, and it was really sad to see them leave, but we're excited to get to know our new President! 

We're also working hard with our new Bishop. He's been really great and very supportive and a TON of changes in callings have happened in the ward, so that's fun. 

Yesterday, Monica Gonzalez and Ernesto Pérez (two recent converts) gave their first talks in Sacrament Meeting and Monica was called as the Relief Society Secretary! It made me so happy to see them progressing in the Gospel and here in the ward! I loved it!

I love you all! Hope you have a great week! If you know anyone here in Coacalco, invite them to the talent show on July 9th! 


Love you!

p.a. Happy 4th, my fellow Americans. Have some BBQ for me. =,)

Hola!

Sorry, I have NOT had very much time to write these last two weeks, and today is similar, so here are some pictures:


We had a minute-to-win-it activity the other day. =)






























Okay, there's a story behind this one. I caught Peter biting his cup, and asked him why he was biting his cup. He told me that it was so he could know which one was his, so I bit my cup, and tried to match his. Silvia got a kick of it and was laughing as Peter tried to tell which cup was which. 


Quetzal Hernandez baptised Peter. He's been bringing Peter to church for 2 years.

Also, fun experience of the week: 
We were in Relief Society, finishing up, and an older sister was asked to give the closing prayer. As she was praying, I realized that her words were familiar, and then I realized: She was reciting the Lord's prayer... the one that the Catholic church always says. She ended, happily with an 'amen' (not in the name of Jesus Christ) and there was a popcorn of amens afterwards. Haha it was just a funny thing that has never happened at home. 

These weeks have been great. I'm growing a lot spiritually and learning how to follow the Spirit's prompting's better. I also testify of God's love and awareness for each of us, and also that the Priesthood power is real, and that it really is God's power and authority here on earth. Of this I am a witness, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen. 

Also, WE FINALLY HAVE A BISHOP!!!! We've been without a bishop for 4 months now, and I couldn't be happier.
