Noche de hogar with the Rivas to say goodbye to Hermana Hernandez, Elder Needham and Elder Lopez, Hermanas Cristina and Meli (they’re actually from the other ward but accompany us and totally spoil us all the time.) And here is my last day with Hermana Hernandez!
And here is Hermana Pineda, my new companion! She’s from my generation actually, so I met her my first day, superrrr sweet and fun, 20 years old and she’s from el Estado de Mexico. I’m excited!
Missing everyone at home, but it’s so special to be sharing the gospel around this time. And fun here too :) This morning we had a big mission Christmas party, tomorrow we get to eat dinner with a family in our ward, and thursday skyping my FAMILY! Lots of yummy food here, I’m in love with the tamales. I’ve sang all of the Christmas hymns about 50 times each the past few weeks and have seen “El es la Dadiva” about 200 times. If you haven’t seen it go watch it :)
We shared this video in the park, along with free hot chocolate. So fun, and it was a hit!
This sunday I got to give a talk on the Atonement, and I feel so grateful for this amazing gift we’ve been given. It is the most important and is what gives us hope and the opportunity to truly be happy, to be with our families forever, and to return to God’s presence. I know without a doubt that Jesus Christ is our Savior, He lives and loves us perfectly. I’ve felt His love so much as I’ve shared this message with others and love being a missionary!
By the way, it’s my year mark! Hope everyone has an amazing Christmas :) Love you all!
Exchanges with the sisters, enjoying campechanas (aka heaven), and opening my Christmas package from home. Love the holidays:)
We went to the park yesterday and enjoyed the swings! Also I played soccer in my pencil skirt and scored a few goals NBD:)
Wow lots has happened in the past week! I’m in a new area thats awesome, great ward and my comp is great–Hna Hernandez from Estado de Mexico. Jose got baptized on Saturday, and it was great too. Lupita gave a little talk, and it made me cry so much to see her doing so well. She made us a cake the night before I left, and I hated saying goodbye. But Jose doing great! He brought like 8 trays of these little mini sandwich things– super fancy and good.
My new area is called Lomas del Pedregal Apodaca, and is northeast of Guadalupe. The ward is super active, and we’re serving with two sets of elders too.
A member brought us campechanas (yummy taco things), and we were so tired while we waited for the food. But it was so worth it!
This is the Hernandez family from La Pastora on my last day in the area. Tough to say goodbye!
