This week we have a family being baptized, the Hernandez Lopez family! The mother is a member and her husband and daughter and son (9 and 10) will be baptized this week! They have already had their interviews and I have never seen anyone so excited for baptism! Also, Luis Angel will be baptized this week if his mom will sign his baptismal form, so please pray that she will. He is 14 years old.
The companionship was a whole lot better this weekend, we are feeling the spirit really strongly in the lessons and we had 3 of our new investigators come to church this week!!!! Please pray for Hna Zarate, she has osteoperosis and her bones have been bothering her. Please also pray for my hair hahaha It is super frizzy and looks like a barbie doll after 3 years of wear and tear hahaha i was loosing a bit of it the other day too, not to freak you out haha
Hna Lopez and Hna Eyring slept over at our place the other night because their house got filled with chinchis ewwwwwww poor hna eyring got bit up... 
Last night Hna Zarate and I watched 17 miracles, it was the first time i had ever seen it and i was bawling like a baby hahaha if you want to see a good movie, WATCH IT
As for my mouth.... still isnt normal, but it isnt bad. i dont want to freak you out, but on the back right side i have formed a little bump, kinda like the ones i was forming before it started shooting out crazy nasty puss, so i am keeping my eye on it, it is a little sore at times if i try to brush it too hard, but im not too worried about it right now. We have interviews with the pres and his wife on friday, so if it is still there i will talk to sis christensen, so you dont need to because if you do she freaks out hahaha 
it is very warm here, i like it alot, and we walk a bunch. we walked for an hour to visit a recent convert and then waited for 20 min for her not to show up and then we walked back hahaha so we wasted like 3 hours one morning, but I am so happy here, we had ward conference this week so we were in the chapel alot practicing with the choir and preping for our baptisms. I was one of the only sopranos and all the ladies thought my voice was amazing, we all not thats not true, but it made me feel dandy hahahahaha
love you all so much! All the crazy cool stuff is coming out this week for day of the dead (halloween) so ill try to take some pics if i see some cool stuff
con amor
