Birthday Weekend!

Week- 43
Area- Tlaxcala, Xicotencatl
Companion- Hermana McBride

Yes, I feel great, a little sleepy haha but that's because we had 3 exchanges this week! 
I had a great time with Hna Parslow, it was so neat to see how much we have both changed since the MTC days. I also worked with Hna Gonzalez, an american sister from Utah and another Hna Gonzalez from here in Mexico, they both have about 5 months in the mission and they were amazing :) We did have some drama this week, we had to close Loma Florida for some reasons, so we have one less sister companionship :(

so as a sister training leader i am not actually with my companion a whole lot because i am out on splits with other sisters, sooooo my wonderful companion decorated the house for my birthday, made me a cake, got a bunch of the people in the ward to write me letters, and then organized a small get together with one of my converts and some of the youth with 2 more birthday cakes, i was sooooo touched and felt soooo blessed, it was and probably will be the best birthday ever :) 

So much happened I dont even know where to begin....
Monday we had a zone activity, we played futbol and dodgeball and it was soooo hot outside, but it felt really good to get out and play. Tuesday we went out to Libres (middle of nowhere, it reminded me alot of Serdan) to have companionship study and planning session with Hna Parlsow and Hna Vazquez and Hna Gonzalez and Hna Cupul and then I stayed in Libres to work with Hna Parlsow. Wednesday we went to Huamantla to switch companions again and we had our district meeting were we practiced contacting and then I had the day to work here in Apizaco with Hna McBride, and we had an amazing little miracle, hna Angelica, a less active member, walked with us to one of her friends house and so now we have 2 new investigators. Thursday we went out to Chiautempan, Hna McBrides old area to go to companion study and planning session with Hna Gonzalez and Hna Corral and Hna McBride stayed in Chiautempan with Hna Corral (her former companion) and I came back to Apizaco with Hna Gonzalez. Friday we all met up in Apizaco and then we headed out for Libres again to work with Hna Gonzalez and Hna Cupul. I stayed in Libres again and then on Saturday we met up in Huamantla to make the switch then got back to Apizaco for planning session and cake and party and we made  a suuuuuuuper yummy lasagna, im starting to get good at cooking haha and then Sunday we were running around a bit helping some sisters with some things. Melissa came again and we are super excited for her baptism in a few weeks. we still have heard hardly anything from Dante, please keep praying for him, but we are really excited about the 2 new investigators and also 2 more :)

love you all so much, I haven't received your package yet, but I'm sure it will come soon.
I read an AMAZING talk this week that you MUST read, or at least Sarah, it was a world wide conference talk given this month for young single adults at ByUi, here is a link with the information, you will have to find the actual talk
