November 30

mis queridos!

this week FLEW by. between exchanges, traveling to merida, lidership conf, district conference, I think we spent like 3 solid days in our area. but it was a week of aprendizaje. and an opportunity to get to know other missionaries mejor :) 

first THANKS SO MUCH TO THE ROUNDY FAMILY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was pretty cool because they had a shoutout in our district conference in ticul by the pres. and wife of the temple!! (who is the brother of Pres. Garcia, how fun) 3 families were sealed this weekend :) so grateful that they could see 

so we started out in the week in MERIDA. we had our leadership training tuesday so we had to travel to merida monday. we worked in the morning and traveled to merida in the night and stayed with my hermanas in ITZIMNA. my old zone. jaja so it was fun seeing the hermana Lopez again. Our leadership conf was in the house of pres. garcia.. (because the capilla en centro was burned a couple weeks ago) they cooked us breakfast and everything for our "thanksgiving" jaja it was fun. Hna Garcia shared the talk of eld bednar about the pickles and how we must be born again. and how it is similar to canning. it reminded me of all our canning memories as a child. with beans, corns, tomatos how i always dreaded those days, but loved eating the fruits of our labors.. we all must go through the process of cleaning, saturating and sealing and have our own conversion that can last us. It has made me reflect alot upon my mission and how my own conversion to the Lord has grown so much! Pres. also talked about the Book of mormon and the power that it has. in our district we have been doing a readathon of the book of mormon to be able to finish before the new year and i have loved reading the power the book of mormon  has.

We are still working with Andy & Dulce. he is having some problems to stop drinking, but he is working greatly on that. theyre little kids are great helpers :) 

Isidro, Marcelino and Mariele are doing well!! we are planning for the 12 of dec. (hestons bday) We are doing a lot of readings with them of the power of the BOM

Angel we havent been able to find in his house.

Saturday was our zone conf and sunday the conference of the district. We gave the talk of hna garcia and made plans to help our district become a stake. we are working a lot with preisthood to get them going. The conf was all about marriage. jajaj the presidentes of the mission and temple spoke with their wives about what makes marriage work and how the gospe infulences it. after with hna huff pres joked with us that he planned the conference for us. jajaj it was funny. 

sorry my thoughts are jumbled, dont have much time! next week i will be writing tuesday because our devotional is monday. love you so much family!!
