January 19

Well we got our cambios... nada! 

I can´t tell you how happy I was last night when we got our phone call. Hermana Pinguelo and I will be here another transfter together! I´m super glad because I don´t feel like ive done all the work the lord has for me here.still things that the lord needs me to learn. Kanasin is truly progressing..The missionaries that come to Kanasin have a rep for staying here a long time. Elder Echeverria, our old zone leader just barely got transfered after 9 months. jaja. the members always joke with me and him that we should just buy our property here :) 

Our baptism fell through with Daniel..we were pretty bummed. But we are now working with him for the 31. Lucy is progressing so well! we had a super powerful lesson with her about the restoration, and at the end she asked us how she could be a missionary like us. she is the age of heston and she reminds me so much of the little sister i never had.i love her :) jose the husband of magy, is doing suepr well!! he is going on 1 week now without smoking and magy is helping him so much. it has been such a cool experience to watch how their relationship is changing and how magy is such a little example for all her family.love them so much.

Every day is an adventure here in the mission! every day we have youth come with us to work, they are preparing for their missions, its been super fun! i wish i would have taken advantage of going out with the missionaries before my mission more. just some funny stories i want to tell real quick.

So Tuesday we had a lesson with Lucy and a youth in our ward, Manuel was going to come to the lesson with us after he was with the other missionaries. so when we got there he had told us how when he was with the missionaries, he helped this lady get rid of an iguana in the fence thing in front of her house. hahaha he showed us the pictures of the two missionaries and him literally yanking this iguana out of a brick wall. the lady told them that they could keep it. I told him how i love the iguanas.there are tooooonnnns of iguanas everywhere and ive always wanted to try to catch one. hahah the next morning we get a call from hermana rubi saying that manuel was in her house with the iguana for us to hold..itslittle legs were tied up and everything. i will have to send the picture. :) 

Other funny story - yesterday we had an acitivity in the stake center for family history (SO FUN.we have been helping all members and less active and inv. do their family history) we had like 5 inv/menos activos that were going to come with us. Hermana Rubi said that she could take us in her van. but her mom is the one who has alzheimers and she is very protective of this van. where the van goes she goes. and we all had to walk away from the house so she wouldnt see us get in the van but hermana rubi hit the panic button and she came running out of the house. and said that hermana rubi couldnt take itwithout her. when we got in the van she was yelling at all of us saying that we couldnt get in and that she was going to charge everysingle oneof us. van a pagar voy a cobrar! jaja but when we got to the activity she was fine. I love her so much. :) we were late, but it was a fun little experience. our investigadores loved it too :) 

I love you all so much. pray for opportunities to do family history work and to share it with others. and GO TO THE TEMPLE. find the time, and the lord will bless you in ALL aspects. I know that. love you all. sorrydont have much time this week :)
