3 Nephi 5:13

"Behold, I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, I have been called of Him to declare His word among His people that they might have everlasting life." 

That was the fastest/hardest/best/most spirit felt/incredible 18 months I have ever had and I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. I am so grateful that Heavenly Father asked, little ole imperfect me to represent Him and His Son. It has been the most humbling experience to really come to know Them. 

I know "that He lives!" (D&C 76:22) I know with everything that I am that He does. That He lives and this is His work and He is involved in it and in our individual lives every single moment. He knows you and loves you and wants nothing more than for you to find joy and happiness. I know that this is the only way back home. It is only through Him that we can find that peace and joy.

I love you!

General Conference

It's the most wonderful time of the year!! Well at least 1 of the 2!! This week it's GENERAL CONFERENCE!! I was so excited that I got to go to the women's conference this last week. It really was exactly what I needed and something I learned from last time was the importance of bringing questions to Conference. I was able to do that this week and all of my questions were answered!! I really honestly can promise you that you will get answers to your questions if you take them to Conference with a sincere heart really wanting to know. He loves you so much and wants you to know that he really cares. 

I am so so so excited that my first weekend in the mission field was General Conference and my last will be as well. (: I am seriously the luckiest Sister Around.

We have been trying by a former investigator sense I got here and we felt that we shouldn't give up hope on them. Last Monday we finally got to see them. And both the parents and 2 daughters become new investigators. They really had such a desire. Eleazar told us that he wants to read scriptures everyday as a family in the first lesson and that they wanted to come to church. We gave them a church tour later in the week and you would not believe it!! One of our members the week previous was helping us with a church tour and told us that the baptismal font is always unlocked because the lock was broken so for Eleazar and his family we made sure to show them the baptismal font. Eleazar when he saw it said, that is where I am going to be! and then turned to the two girls, Isabel and Idaly, and said you will be there too when you get baptized!!

Heidi Trujillo my be one of my favorite people
 in all of Texas and the world

 Greatest tender mercy.

 Love this lady so so much.

 Thelma, Idaly and Isabel for the church tour.

We found a cactus
 then found a prickly pear
on the cactus
 and then ate it.
 haha or tried to at least

We got to go to Bahama Bucks
and it may be the
 greatest snow cone place on the planet.

Elder Calvillo at zone conference.
Seriously taking pictures with Elders can be rather awkward.
 but it's fine.

We hate a pink cupcake
and it died our hands teeth, and lips pink.

"Ultimately Realize..."

I was studying in the Proclamation to the family this week and there was something in there that really hit me. Something that I have read over and over again but I didn't realize the real meaning of it until this week. In the 3rd paragraph (I think it was) it says,
 "In the premortal realm, spirit sons and daughters knew and worshipped God as their Eternal Father and accepted His plan by which His children could obtain a physical body and gain earthly experience to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize their divine destiny as heirs of eternal life."
The one thing that really stood out to me was that a major part of our Heavenly Father's plan was for us to realize who we really are. For us to realize that we can really become like He is. Isn't that so incredible?! Heavenly Father wants us in this life to ultimately realize the happiness we can achieve as we follow the counsel He gives us. I really love being able to know that Heavenly Father wants nothing more than for us to believe in ourselves and the great potential each of us have. He wants us to know that is really is possible to become like Him. It isn't just a goal He has set that we can look at and say, "I'll never make it." but rather He wants us to believe and know that it is completely possible as we rely on our Savior. So.Incredible.

Well Love you lots!! Have the best day ever!

1. We made cookies for members in Ward Council so that was fun
2. Bryanna told us she was pregnant, which is a tender mercy because now she has more motivation to quit vaping(((:
3. I feel like I'm in a Spanish ward. We had 4 dinners in a row where they didn't speak English and they are all members in an English ward haha - so that was an adventure.
4. A member skyped my MTC companion, Sister Vete, who just went home for work and it was really weird to soo her not as a missionary. 
5. Also I may have stood on a doorstep for 4 minutes and gotten so.many.bug.bites.

 I figured out how to get the pictures off of my camera!! (Thanks to Mamma Park in Las Cruces)

Apparently when we tell people where our church
 is they talk about this tree.
 So naturally we had to
take a picture in front of it. Haha

The dream district(;

One of the 8 year olds in our ward, Hunter Flippo, got baptized 
and so we got to teach the Restoration
 at his baptism and these cute Sisters were there(:

I finally got the pictures from Jacob Kett's baptism! This is his cute family and his son that baptized him.
