Well this week was pretty boring...
Monday- We played volleyball and I got so burt, that it hurt to smile. I love play volleyball but not when I get burnt.. We went to the plaza to eat and A stalker was there and the Elders protected me. I am so thankful for them.
Tuesday- We had a great lesson with a teenager who can really progress and I hope that she does. We visited some investigators and we contacted a lot. I love to contact. Its nice. I love doing this work with all of my heart.
Wednesday- We washed our clothes and we did our grocery shopping. It was good to have food in the house. I love the food here. My companion was sick so The colocha went on divisions with a member and I stayed in the house with my compa. It was good because I got a lot of things ready and I felt better.
Thursday- I had a health attack but I am good. We had our multi zone meeting and it was good. I learned a lot. We missed our bus to Tactic so we got to sleep with President and his wife... it was funny. I missed having a big bed and everyting. I ate really yummy food!
Friday- Was a hard day for me. A very hard day. I was in a lot of pain and everything. But we worked. We had some good lessons and then at night I dyied my companions hair... It was fun and then I might have dyed a part of my hair red... It looks way cool when my hair is up in a bun.
Saturday- We visited some investigators that are progressing and we were able to help Byron pack up presents and thank you mom for making me wrap all the Christmas presents I put my practice into play. It was funny watching all the customers stairing at me shocked that I could wrap that fast. It was fun.
Sunday- I taught the lessons in church and it was fun. I liked it a lot. It was good. I liked it a lot.
I dont know if i will be able to write next week but I will see you guys soon! Dont worry I am so excited to see you all and to be abel to share with you guys my experiences that I had!!!!! :)
I love this gospel and this work. I am so thankful for this time that I have had to be able to serve a mission. I love my Savior and everything! :)

Well Family this week was a very long week! VERY LONG!!!!
We had a good Pday, we played soccer like always and then we had an amazing FHE with our investigator Byron and he understood the importance of baptism. We hope to put a baptism date with him this week!!! It will be good!
On Tuesday we had some good lessons that were needed. IT was something that we needed to do because we had a good lesson with Byron and he is really progressing. I hope that he makes his mind up and gets baptized. We went we with our baptism date. and she is ready for her baptism but we are just waiting to teach her a couple more lessons before we call it good!
Wednesday we had district meeting and it was really awkward because EVERYONE and their dog were sick! It was crazy! IT was like one minute a companionship was in the bathroom and the next minute another companionship! I dont know what happened with us but its okay! we had a sick day because my companion was sick so that makes 6 sick days in this change... its crazy!!!! I dont like it very much but you know, we have plans to work SUPER HARD THIS WEEK!!!
Thursday- We had to do a lot of things because at night we had a a relief society activity and we are the presidency so we had to do everything. We went to the market to get the food and it was crazy! I was put in charge of the money and my compas were yelling at me telling me to give them both money and I was so confused but everything worked out. We had a couple of lessons and then had the activity. We werent expecting anyone to come but we had 80 people there!!!!!! That is a miracle here in Tactic. So that was really great for us! It was a ton of work because I lead everything but it was way fun! The sisters loved it!
Friday- Today we had weekly planning and then we washed our clothes. We celebrated my other comps cumple mes and that was good. we had a couple of lessons which were good and we invited Byron to baptism and he told us that he is going to think about it more. I hope that he decides now!!!!
Saturday- We celebrated Elder Kelleys birthday. Hes a new Elder here in the mission and he is really funny. One of my dear friends. We made lunch and dinner witha member for him. It was good. Our baptism date fell through, she doesnt have a desire and we are not going to force anyone to be baptized if they dont want to. So its okay. I hope that she had a desire someday. I know that she will.
Sunday- We had our branch conference and it was really good. We had the chapel filled and it was good. We also had 6 investigators at church. that was really good for us!! I was so hapy! :) We had some good lessons and some meetings at church. It was fun!
I love the mission so much!!! :) I hope that you all have a good week and you all read the Book of Mormon. I am so thankful for that book!
LOVE YOU ALL!

We celebrated a birthday of and Elder who is from Utah and then we had the best lesson with Bryon, an investigator that is super pilas and he is just the best. It makes me really happy that he is progressing and everything!- we washed our clothes and they smell so good, I am going to be super happy when I can wash my own clothes whenever I want! I miss having clean clothes! :) We also had a meeting with the branch and I had some great ideas and I really love this branch that I am in and the members told me that I cant leave because they need me!- I hit 17 months today and it was really hard for me because it made me trunky or baggy how we say it here. But you know, its how the mission works. I hope that I enjoy this last month here that I have!- we contacted a lot and we were able to work a lot and I love it so much! It makes me really happy to have a good day with lessons that really helped us to help our investigators. I love my investigators and everything!- Today we had a stake activity and it was really good. I was able to see the a YSA from my old areas and it made me really happy. I love them so much!!! :) It made me miss my old areas like alwys.- We had 2 really great classes that I taught in church. It was hard but you know, thats what I get when I am president and the sister that knows everyone in the branch! But my companion was sick and everything so that was sad but I was able to teach a little bit and everything. So that made me really happy!
Well I am glad that things are good back home and that you guys are getting things ready for me because I am getting ready for you guys too!!! :)
On monday we played dodge ball as a zona and it was a lot of fun! I really liked it but you know I was dying of a heat attack but thats how it is here in Guatemala.
OH I FORGOT TO TELL YOU GUYS.... I AM THE RELIEF SOCIETY PRESIDENT HERE IN THIS BRANCH. AND MY COMPANIONS ARE MY COUNCILORS AND IT IS REALLY INTERESTING. AND VERY HARD.
WEll that was my week and I am glad that you all know when I am coming home. Yes it is theat 4 in the afternoon....
I love you all!
I think that it would be a lot easier if I started writting you guys before I started to respond to my friends. How are you guys doing?
Well mom, I am glad that you are teaching funny phrases to the twins. That sounds like a lot of fun and that you are liking it. I sure hope that they have funny things to say. If you want to teach them something really funny teach them somethings in spanish like A la Gran or Pilas. Its really funny!
Dad, you are so active! I love that and maybe one day I will be able to do one with you. Something that we say here is primeramente dios and that means god first. Everyone says that when they dont want to put a specific day with us to go back to visit them. So primeramente dios jejeje
Well this week was a pretty great week.
Monday- We helped a brother from the branch get the guts to buy a ring for his girlfriend. She is also a member in the same branch and I love her so much. They are so cute together and we are planning on helping him propose to her!!!! I am excited!
Tuesday- We got a lot of references to contact and I am excited to do a lot of wrok here in Tactic! I love the mission!
Wednesday-It was my companions special day because she hit 9 months in her mission so we bought a cake to celebrate. But my other companion got really sick so we had to go home and she slept a lot. But I was able to study and talk to my colochita and I love that.
Thursday- We had zone meeting and it was really good. This week was the week of the town fair so we decided to put a table up and pass out folletos and cards and it worked really well. We played some games to see who could pass out the most folletos and I didnt win because I was dying because I have a cold but you know, its okay.
Friday- We contacted more today but it was raining so hard that we were stuck in a building for about 2 hours! It was pretty fun because there is a new guy in my branch that tells me everything about the states and it makes me baggy but you know, its okay because I will be able to know things better when I get home.
Saturday- Today I had a HUGE Asthma attack and I was put on bed rest. It was really hard for me not to be able to work but the nurse told me that I need to buy another inhalor to help me and I am going to keep in chill that way I will be able to come home when its time for me to come home.
Sunday-today was a lost day because I was sick and my companions didnt want to take me out to work in the rain, it was a good idea. But I am really excited to do all the things that we didnt get done this next week!
I love the mission so much and I am so happy that I am here! :)
I love you all!
I am so sorry that my emails are getting really short. Its because I am trying to do everything at the same time and it is really hard for me.
Well this week was a really great week. We got our new companion and her name is Hermana Bueso she is from Honduras and she is really cute. I was pretty scared to be with her because she heard a lot of rumors about me and she didnt want to come with us but we talked everything out and she is way chill. We got to work and it was really fun.
Something that I have learned from her, Hermana Bueso, is that we need to contact more. This week we really put that in practice. We all took 10 folletos to contact and we had to give them all away. The last person that does it has to buy ice cream. Lets just say that I have not bought ice cream yet and I am glad of that. I love to contact!
Something happened this week and I am so thankful for the miracle that we had. At church we had our investigators that have baptism dates and they all understood the importance to go to church and to be baptized. I just hope that they follow through. Its really funny and everything.
I am sorry but I dont have a ton of time because the time goes by so fast and I am always laughing to much with my family and everything! I love this work so much and I am lucky to be here at this time! I love my life so much!!!
I love you all and this week I will write out all the things that happen so I can write it all out in my next letter! I love you all!!! !
How are you guys doing?
Well this week was a good week. We had a great district meeting where we learned more about the atributs of Christ and it helped me to think more about it and how I need to change. This week I put in practice love. It was hard because something terrible happened and I was really sad but I put it in practice and I am glad that I am learning more about the atributes.
This week we also did a lot of service. I am so glad to be here as a missionary helping those around me fill the love of God.
Well I found out that I dont have changes but I am going to be in a companionship of 3. I am really scared for it because I dont want to have any problems but you know I am excited to learn a lot and do be able to divisions more with the members.
I love this work and I am excited to be here and to do the work that I am called to do. This is the true church and I am so thankful for it.
I know that this is the true church and that we are here to learn a lot about this wonderful work.
I would like everyone to read joshua 1:5-9. I love this scripture. Its great. Well I hope that you all have a great week and that you all learn a lot.
Love you all!
Oh and we went on a zipline. It was dope!
