Happy 18 months!!

Well friends and folks i have officially completed what is to be a girls mission. Not saying they have it easy or anything but come on now girls missions go by unbelievable fast. But anyways. Hey happy september everybody and happy football season (the greatest season of the year. Sounds like you guys had an awesome time at the BYU vs U of A game. I'm glad BYU pulled it off there at the end. They always just like to make things as interesting as posible right? AND HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH CONGRATS ON COMPLETING ------- YEARS OLD WOW YOU ARE SO YOUNG! (Mom, you have the power to edit it whatever age you feel like completing, you're welcome). Hope you have an awesome day and everyone give you lots of cookies because cookies make people happy. Meanwhile life moves on in El Salvador......

This week has been quite crazy i must admit. LET ME EXPLAIN: Tuesday we had to wake up at 4 in the morning to go to a meeting in San Salvador and after getting lost in buses for a couple hours (I dont recommend doing that) we finally made it to our meeting for the leadership council in the temple. It was super powerful. All the zone leaders and President started a special fast on monday and were fasting for the meeting and then afterwards we got to do a temple session with president. (I do highly recommend doing that). I felt so much power and felt like another layer of the veil was taken off in there and felt as if revelation and the spirit came so very strongly to give us answers we were looking for as a mission on how to improve even more. ill never forget the experience. Afterwards we got back late and wednesday was a normal but very sleepy day. Thursday we got up super early again to set everything up for the interviews with President in Apopa. Since our zone is huge we were there from 6 to 5 in the afternoon and it was a long day. But Presidente (probably one of the greatest men on earth), filled us with the spirit as he taught us one on one. He has taught me so much about the Gospel and just watching him i have many goals about how I want to live my life. I owe a lot to that man. So that was an awesome but very tiring day. The rest of the week we spent going from Quezaltenango to Soyapango helping deliver papers for a bunch of weddings they are going to have. So yeah... busy week. GOOD  NEWS THOUGH. Emily passed her baptismal interview so she will be getting baptized on Saturday and we are really excited. For the 17 of September we have like 5 possible baptisms but none of them are set for sure, so prayers go a long way! They have been going to church a lot and are doing everything awesome but doubts have creeped into their minds so we are working really hard for them. We had another fast this week on saturday and we focused on them. There is a lot that goes on behind the scenes for missionaries. we are always praying and fasting and studying for our investigators and you really develop a love for them and want the best for them and the best is this Gospel. We've got a lot of work to do. But thank you everyone for all the support it means a lot!!!! ADIÓS PUES
