Mis cariños :)
Hi everyone! So fun to hear about your weeks. I'm sorry that I am a
little late, but I can't let another minute go by without wishing my
cute dad a happy Father's Day. I love you dad!! I am so thankful for
your incredible example. Thank you for being my biggest fan and best
friend. I feel so blessed to be your daughter.
This week was a great one! To start off- we had the best family home
evening this week! We do it every week, but normally don't have that
great of a turn out. We are trying to change that and tried to make
this week a bigger deal and it was a success! We had more
investigators there than we do at church... Hahah something needs to
change in that! So fun though it was a great way for our investigators
to get to know the church a little better.
Our investigators are doing well! I'll start with Susi :) we were able
to meet with her this week and we reviewed the plan of salvation and
even used some videos too :) yay iPads! She was able to share her
testimony with us about her faith in The Lord as well as the Book of
Mormon. She is an incredible woman. And her daughters are darling!
They dance at Willy's dance studio and we went to their year and
concert to help out with programs and other things like that. So fun
to watch them! And the best part of all- we left with 2 more families
to teach. The Roka's are awesome!
We weren't able to visit with Vanessa and her family this week, but
Corry (her 16 year old daughter) went to mutual and absolutely loved
it. We have an appointment with them tonight and are very excited to
see their progress!
Even though the elders are teaching them, Sandra's son AND husband
have now come to church twice and have a baptismal date for the 18th
:) they are the cutest I am so happy for them. They are so good to the
missionaries I feel so blessed to have people like them in my life.
One highlight of this week was the visit from the jacksons. We had our
last interviews and I just sobbed. I love the jacksons! I feel so very
grateful to have served with them the first half of my mission. They
are incredible people. It is so great to be with them, we got hugs and
I think that wraps it up for this week. Thank you for all of the love
and support! You guys are amazing. Thank you for letting me do this! I
love my Heavenly Father and for the blessing that he has given me to
be his missionary for a little bit :) I love you all to pieces! Have a
The last supper with Elder Ruiz. He left this morning for Madrid to go
be a.p.!!! He is an amazing missionary he will be great. Fun fact- out
waiter was from Palermo :) and yes my pizza has fish on it.
I have been in Europe too long!
Last time with the Jacksons!! LOVE them!
We visited the cathedral today in las palmas. So cool!
