Mexico Week #2

mexico is still awesome! Today we were walking to write and it just started to pour! hahaha, the weather is wacky, it is usually super nice and warm during the day and then it will just dump on us in the afternoon. there is a lot of thunder and lightning too. we even had a mini earthquake, i thought it was awesome because i had never been in one before, my companion was a little worried though haha
this week we had my first intercambio, which is when we switch companions for the day. hermana lopez went to puebla with one sister and i stayed with another here. it was pretty interesting, but overall i think it went pretty well, considering it was my first real time leading lessons, since the other hermana was there to evaluate me... a little awkward considering i don´t know that much spanish but whatever haha i had fun. we contacted twice as many people this week, so i was pretty happy about that and hermana lowe and fonseca, two hermanas in our district, had a baptism this saturday, which was so amazing to attend! 
we have a baptism this week and we set two more baptism dates this week!!! victoria this week, sebastian next week, briza (a teen) the next week (im not to sure how this one is going to go though, not super animated about it), and nohemi in july with her son when he turns 8. nohemi has had so many unfortunate things happen to her and this week everything finally started to turn around, i have never seen her so happy. 
i get better and better at spanish every day, it is still a little tricky at times but i never try to be disappointed because i just remember IM IN MEXICO!!! 
love you all so much! thank you for all the emails and love!
something cool that i love about the work is that it is so much more than just walking up and down streets looking for people to teach. we are going to be starting english classes, we have a trip to hawaii activity in motion (talk about plan of salvation), and also a missionary program during sacrament. we are going to puebla on friday, so the missionaries want to see if we can find a violin for me to play.
love you all! i pray for you every day! 
love hermana ibarra
