Slushies and Staying Here

(Written on Monday, May 25, 2015)

Hello world!

This week went pretty grand, we learned a lot from leaders of the church about how Ipads are going to help us fulfill our purpose as missionaries so much more and they will prepare us for things to come by teaching us good habits and reasons to use technology. I'm so grateful to learn everything from this time here. Really we learn so much about our futures and how to prepare on the mission.

I am so grateful. I get to stay here for one more transfer (6 weeks) with sister Stark and I'm really grateful for another 6 weeks because we have two people preparing for baptism here, one of which is Jaime who learned about the Holy Ghost and compared it to his "battle buddy" since he is in the army! Whatever works to help you understand! He has decided to get baptized on July 4th! I'm so happy! He has become a very good friend of mine and I know I am here to help him!

Also I wanted to share a quick and cute miracle with you all this week. Here, we are kinda living in a mini Mexico! I love it! There are people riding around on bicycles selling slushies and food and the cowboys and everything. So it was particularly warmer the other day on Saturday and we saw these guys and I was just thinking, "Man, I really want one of those, but I have no money." Then the guy motioned us over and I told him "no tenemos dinero hermano" (we don't have money) and he told us the man in the truck bought them for us. Turned out it was Jose Luis who we were going to be meeting with his family later that day and he told us he knew it was hot and wanted to help us out! It was the nicest and simplest tender mercy, but it helped me know that Heavenly Father is mindful of us even with small and simple things. I'm so grateful!

I love the mission so much!
Everyone have a great week!
