Querido Familia,

siento muy bien para escribirles y decir que....  ALEJANDRA ACEPTO FECHA!!! wootwoot.
we had such a spiritual experience yesterday!! as I told yall weve been on the hunt for investigadores.. we have been contacting in the streets like crazy, asking for references, looking the area book, everything. motul has been an area that everyone hasta el perro han escuchado los misoneros. but hey, the work never is in vain. one of the investigadores antiguos, alejandra is one of those miracles. in our fast we were praying and fasting for the people that we had contacted to be receptive of the message and to for the lord to help us recognize those who are prepared.. and thats just what happened!

sunday after our consejo de barrio we had put a couple of the contacts to go visit, as we were walking to one of them we ran across alejandra. her husband and mother in law are less active. we had visited them earlier on the week. the mother in law juanita is missing a leg and hasnt been able to leave the house.. and her son has been out of work for 2 weeks because he doesnt have money to repair his moto taxi. they were both baptized 2 years ago but alejandra has never felt like its something right for her. her registro is full of all the lessons. just another testimony to me of the lord prepares his children in his time, like my good friends Magy and Karma :) we read alma 7 with them and when we got to verses 11 and 12 we asked her how she felt and her eyes were gleaming and said she wanted to know more about the atonement. so we started talking about el yugo and suddenly asked us if we were inviting her to baptism. jaja hermana falcon and i were like YES. she was a little hesitant, but told us that she felt something super new, like "algo caliente" a peace, and we testified that it was the spirit. ahhh i love helping people recognize the spirit. thats my favorite part, seeing people make the "click" the understanding of who that special person is. we put 11 de julio but she was like no i dont think i can do that. 30 de junio because its my birthday. hey, we didnt have to argue. :) the spirit was super strong! and we were super excited. it was an answer to our prayers and gave us a lot of energy to keep working and to NEVER LOSE HOPE on anyone. I love that that has been a common theme in my mission. :) 

this week was full of walking, sweating, and contacting. We are still working on finding people, and helping those that we have progress. "if you want to baptize some people, talk to some people, if you want to baptize a lot of people, you talk to a lot of people, if you want to baptize everyone, you talk to everyone." hermana falcon and i are putting that into practice. :) there are TONS of churches here. we ran into a lady who is from the reformed church who had a book of mormon. i had no idea that that was a thing. 

it was a good week. we had a reunion with our lideres de zona and they helped us make goals to help us become mas consagrada y misioneras de integro proposito. something that our leader said i really liked. that faith hope and charity always go hand in hand. and somethings when we feel like we are doing well in one of them we need to work on the others as well. to be balanced. 

well i love you all so much. i am so happy to be a missionary during the restoration and to understand WHO is my father in heaven. seek Him and he will seek you. learn of him!! give your eyes to see your ears to listen and your hearts to understand matt     13:15, 2 nerfi 16:10 

love you all
