6 More Days!

Susan and Omar are seriously the best.... Susan is a single mother of an 8 year old and a 2 year old, Omar and Emi. 
It was the most spiritual baptism I have yet so far, the spirit was soooo strong, her mother came to church too and was so grateful to see her daughter and grandsons happy. 
They were baptized on Sunday because it was Omar's 8th birthday :) Today is the party, we are heading over after we finish writing. 
Omar knows more about Joseph Smith than any other investigator hahaha Susan is more active than probably all the members and is just so happy. 
Today we had a district party, we played baseball and it wasn't too fair hahaha because I kept hitting the ball into home runs and everyone was like how is that even possible... hahaha it felt really good to play again :)
we are super excited for mothers day too, I think 6 my time is fine, hna peñaloza is checking with her family right now, if i hear anything ill let you know, but i think 6 is good. :)
It was a crazy week with our baptismal interviews, 2 intercambios, and some crying sessions haha but we are great. we are very sad because we know that we will probably be having cambios, but i will let you know when we skype. 
When we skype you will have to tell me what crazy plans you have set, ill only have 4 and a half months left! i don'
t like to count down, but its a little tricky when everyone says they can smell you dying hahahaha
I did get the package, por fin, and the cream felt sooooo good.... thank you :)
i love you so much! we have 2 baptisms for sure planned in the next few weeks, we are super excited.
love you

2 More weeks until we skype!

We had a ton of success in the Hawaii activity, we actually have a new baptism date from it and lots of new investigators!
we have lots of baptisms planned for may, but the ward isn't satisfied haha so we are going to try to put two or 3 more for May, so please pray that the lords will will be done :)
we are soooo happy, we have a TON of work this week, 2 intercambios and leadership counsel and then one more week and we have changes! well, we aren't sure if we have changes yet, but i think so :( 
I don't really care when i speak, you guys can plan everything. I don't want to think about what i will do when i get home yet hahaha so you guys can just surprise me with whatever.
This week has been pretty intense on the sister training leader end, lots of desanimo in the mission right now, but we are super happy because a lot of our sisters are doing alright and having a lot of success. :)
We have 2 more cambios then hna lopez leaves, then i leave, then hna peñaloza leaves....

On splits with Hermana Aitken from the states

This sweet family was sad to find out that Marissa had her birthday before coming to their area, so they baked her a cake anyways.  There is never a bad time for cake.
