Hola Amigos

Hola amigos y amigas! This is super weird to be writing on a Friday but we went to the temple this morning and Pday is today :) I wont be able to write til August 4th or I just wanted to say hi and give a quick little update.

First of all, Enrique is set to get baptized and even signed the papers so it's official! And wow, my heart was so happy when he made it official. He was prepared for us to come into his life. I love seeing how the Lord works differently with everyone as well. He's so close to the waters! Also, Marta is really excited to go to Church and all her kids and nieces and nephews are coming on Sunday and they're all really excited as well. We are seeing progress finally!

I met 3 people this week that speak English!! It's super nice because now my Spanish is good enough to where I actually prefer Spanish...isn't that sweet?! I keep stumbling over when English when I talk to my new friends, which is a good sign. 

So, the big thing this week was that we had divisions! This time I stayed in my area and hermana Rodrigues went to the other I was in charge of all the lessons, the phone, the keys and everything. I was really scared because usually my comp starts everything and leads...but this time it was my turn to be the leader! and wow, as you can all imagine I absolutely loved it. I forgot how much I love to take charge. Okay, that sounds really prideful and kinda bad, but it was so much fun and I gained my confidence back. We had 8 lessons that day and met 20+ new people. It was a killer day and I learnedc that if I really work hard and Trust then anything is possible. I'm learning so much and I just love this place with all my heart.

We woke up at 4 this morning to go to the temple with our Zone, and it was such a great experience. I Love the temple! I love this gospel and I'm so happy to be a part of it in such a time when people need the light most. I love you all tons and thanks for giving me the best support system there ever was. Have a great week!!
