5 months down!

HOLA!! sorry i havent written for the last couple of weeks...I have been super busy!

First off, on Feb 26 i had my first baptisms! they are two brothers who had a crazy life and are full of tattoos and gangster stuff...but now they are like the most faithful people I have ever met!

It has been really cold here. On tuesday it rained all day and hailed a little bit. We had to visit a family who lives out in the middle of no where and their entire property is dirt. It was super muddy and cold, but the lesson was good and they gave us some hot water. The worst part was on the way home we missed the bus...so we had to walk 45 mins in the hail and mud...my first horrible mission adventure haha.

On friday i started teaching english classes haha. There is another american elder in my district and every friday we are going to teach classes to get more investigators!

Saturday was my birthday! 20 feels old haha. We didnt do anything special, but we had a really spiritual lesson and I got some cake from a relief society party! We contacted a lady on the bus and went to her house like an hour after. Her son came out of the house shirtless and full of tatoos and we asked if we could share a message with them. He said yes and the spirit was so strong! everyone cried and they both accepted a baptismal date!!

I hope everyone is doing ok! Only 2 weeks left of this transfer!

Busy Hermana

Mindy here. It sounds like Kourtney's new area keeps her super busy :) and doesn't leave her much time to email on Mondays :( - I asked Kourt how her week went and this was her reply:

it was pretty good. the last week of febuary i had my first two baptisms!! they are brothers and in their 20s and super gangster looking haha...it feels cool to have baptisms even though i didn't do anything to help them haha.

this week we traveled to leon for a multi zone conference and i had my first interview with my mission president...he totally ripped me apart, but in the most loving way possible haha. i kind of thought i was in this trio to become a leader but now i just think im here to learn how to work haha. he's a really good guy and im gonna miss him when we get a new president. after we went to costco haha!!

we also traveled to guanajuato for zone meeting and it is really pretty there!! dolores is like at least 2 hours away from everything so every time we travel we have to wake up super early.

last week we had splits with some hermanas because my comps are leaders. 2 hermanas came to our area for 3 days and lived and worked with us...5 missionaries in one house is a lot haha! one of them was my last comp who doesn't talk haha

i love and miss you soooo much!! please party for me on my bday...yesterday was one of my comps bdays and we did nothing haha}
tell people to save presents for me :P
sorry i dont have time to email a lot of people or send a mass or pics...apologize to everyone for me haha
