June 22

Well this week marks my year mark of being a missionary por tiempo completo! I wish that is would just slow down a bit.. jaja. mom i feel the same feeling you did when you thought of your 30 years with dad, when i first got here and missionaries told me they had a 1 or more i thought chispas theyre old! but now im here and i still feel as if I got here yesterday. :) I still feel like spongebob just absorbing in everything I can and trying to learn everything I can.

This week was pretty fun. we are working with investigadores progressing.. still ningun de ellos han ido a la capilla. i feel like the girl in the district that says, JUST GO TO CHURCH!! but we just have to keep inviting and working with the ward to get them there. (any advice, diganme) 

We had our mini CCM this week!! it was such a blast!! we had 12 jovenes and JAS there! it was literally such a spiritual experience. i think more for me! i gave count to a lot of the blessings of being out here on the mission. there is a joven, Yulisa, she is such a solid girl. SO STRONG. in the morning we were teaching how to start a lesson and give one and the youth were really stressing out. (we did practices) and a lot of them were saying i cant do it i cant do it. but then they started to get more comfortable. in the night after we did divisions (i went with her and another named cynthia, we visited her friend) we had a testimony meeting. Yulisa said that in the morning she was going to stay home when they went home to eat.. but then thinking about it she remembered that she made a commitment with the Lord, and despite that this was hard, she loved her heavenly father and wanted to serve. the spirit filled the room as she testified.. I love her to death. she reminds me of all  my cute young women in the ward. she is going to be the best little missionary ever! much success from this activity :) 

Sorry dont have much time.. i spent most the day waiting in the hospital. no need to get freaked out mom. just have an ingrown toenail.. haha for 10 months. it didnt really bother me. i dont know whats going on but i have like a high level to put up with pain. this week i was like chispas my toe hurts. hermana falcon looked at it and was like HERMANA!! there is another toe that is growing. jajaj i hadnt payed much attention but after i looked at it it started to hurt. we clipped it but made it worse. so i have a wonderful appt wednesday. im hoping that this procedure goes better than that of sams. :) ill send yall pics. :)  

I love belonging to the church of jesus christ of latter day saints.
keep sharing your testimonies with friends and help the missionaries. be good sistems of support for them.. and help the members in the ward like you all do.. :)
