Well...this is it! I had my final baptism on Saturday and that was such a great experience! I HAVE LOVED THE MISSION!!! I know that I have a lot of work to do at home but its the hardest thing saying goodbye to the people here who have made an impact on you for the past 18 months. I have changed and I know that as we grow in the gospel that we all can change! This is his work and we all need to share it!!

Well this week was great!! We have seen miracles! We found a family, they felt lost and want to find the truth!! I love it!! They really want to learn more and the wife is going to come to church on Sunday. She said she is just confused in life and want to find her path. When we told him that he needs to pray and he will receive his answer and he said he thinks he knows what it will be!! We also had the opportunity to go the ZOO and we fed the Giraffes, that was fun! My companion and I definitely enjoyed our time!! We all need to share the gospel and let everyone know about it!! The church is TRUE!! As we come to know who we our we will come to know that we need to share the gospel and let everyone else feel the joy that we have in our lives!!

Guatemala is great!! I love it here! I am so thankful that I can be serving here! What a blessing it is for me to do be able to do! I loved conference so much! We really all need to think about what we learned from conference and put it into practice!! The talks they gave were what we need to hear at this time in our lives and we need to be able to share it with our friends! This week was good with teaching. Right now we are teaching our bishops brother and the bishop said to us, I don't know what you Hermana's have done, but you did something because they never let the missionaries in that house! It's been a great experience and he totally wants to change as well, which I love so much!! I just want so many people to teach right now that just have that desire to learn!! Share your testimonies!!! Even when you feel tired just know that you can keep going with the help of the Lord by your side. He loves you and I love you all. I know that Christ lives and loves us and we need to show him our love back!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

Well life here in Guatemala is great!! Still going strong!! The work of the Lord is the best and greatest decision anyone can make! There are miracles that await each and everyone of us! We need to be open and listening to the spirit and he will guide us. If he isn't guiding us to the people we need to talk to, he is guiding us to where we need to be in life. Sometimes we don't realize the people the Lord puts in our paths, but we know we just need to keep trusting and talking to the people! I am so excited for General Conference this weekend and I hope you all are too because its this time that we receive revelation for ourselves and for the people around us! We are here to learn and to grow. but we can't do that without acting! I love the work!! Keep your heads up and know that the Lord is proud of you all and that HE LOVES YOU!!!

Well this week has been good and interesting, we just have to take each day one day at a time. The Lord will help us do it. I love the missionary life and the nursing life even though sometimes they are so crazy!! that is what I have really learned that you just have to have the faith and know that the Lord has a plan for each of us! Two cool experiences. I had the opportunity to go to a sealing for a convert and what a great experience that was for me to be able to go there and witness it! I loved it so much. Then the sister training leaders called me and said that when I was in there area that I contacted a girl that was crying in the park and when I was talking to her she felt that God was telling her that the church was true. They have been teaching her and that is what she told them. I thought that was really cool!! We never know the impact that we have on people and so we need to share the gospel with everyone!!

This week was good! We had a family be BAPTIZED!! That was soo AMAZING!! I absolutely loved it. I have been able to see their change from the beginning and that was a blessing for me to see them have that desire. They are soo happy now. She said that she doesn’t want to stop reading the scriptures because its like a story. She is pilas!! (which is awesome!) I love them so much! We also got to have a conference with Elder Andersen from the 12 Apostles and that was absolutely wonderful!! I loved it! He really stressed how much we need to focus on understanding the Atonement! He was so great and shook all of our hands. I also was able to see people from my district in the MTC who I haven’t seen in 14 months and that was great! What an amazing thing it is to see the people that you haven’t seen in so long and the change they have had. I love the gospel so much! I am so thankful to be able to be serving here and remember that every member is a missionary so we need to all share the gospel with people. We don’t know who will be touched by your example and by the influence that you have had on them!
