Alma 37: 38-47

Oh my family so many wonderful things are happening here in Motul and it sounds like for you all as well. so happy :) 

This week was one of traveling... jajaja it was good! tuesday hermana falcon and I had our first conference of liderazgo como hermana capacitadoras. it was really really good. we havent been fulfilling our goal of baptizing every week so as zones we did a little consejo to make plans and goals for what we will be doing. in our zone with the LZ and LD we started making lots of goals and plans but no one felt good about them... then we realized its p u r i f i c a t i o n. that we need. i thank my brother jake for sending me lots of material from his mission. as a zone we are doing the "purification challenge" so we can have the POWER and AUTHORITY of our callings. it was a really powerful meeting.. lots of my friends go home this transfer so it was fun to hear the final testimonies.. and also sad.. 

Wedenesday we had our conferencia de zona. hermana falcon and I spoke about the talk of hna garcia and then we made the list of the SMALL AND SIMPLE things. what we are doing and what we are not doing.. and made goals to esforzarnos for EXACT OBEDIENCE. its not easy, but every day we are working and it starts to become part of our character. one of our ZL is dying this transfer so we made him an "adjusting to the life of an RM" manuel from our zone. jajaja it was filled with advice and stuff like that. it was fun :) 

Thursday we went to immigration.... so i could remain in mexico! it was fun! all the missionaries from my generation were there with. it was so crazy seeing them and how much we have all changed. i cant believe im been in MEXICO FOR ONE YEAR!!! so many things have happened in this one year.. i love my mexico.. the lord truly knows what we need and who we need.

ryan was baptized this week!!! it was such a beautiful event! friday was his interview with the elders. he was so nervous. jajaja we made him a commitment to memorize the articles of faith and so he was reapeting them before his interview and sweating.. jaja his mom was so pleased. :) then after his cousin brandon who we are teaching came! it was his first time coming to the church building and we asked him if he wanted to walk inside and said YES. I want to see the baptism font! he is such a little trooper. We are working a lot with his family. they came to the baptism of Ryan as well. so we were super happy :) Ryan has been such an example to his family - i love seeing the change in them! Love seeing that by doing the small and simple things, the lord has blessed them immensly. 

I love you all so much. :) 
have a good week!!
