Happy Cinco de Mayo!

You know what? They don't even celebrate that holiday in mexico... so it's not even a big deal here. It's an american mexican holiday. haha Well this week has truly been amazing. We had a zone meeting on tuesday, a zone conference with President T* on Wednesday and then a meeting with President and the AP's on Thursday because I finished my training last transfer. All of those meetings were SUPER COOL and SUPER POWERFUL. President T recently got back from a meeting in Texas with Elder Bednar. And he said some powerful things. I wish I could just write all my notes in here. Just know that it changed my perspective of missionary work.

"last p-day we bought squirt guns and attacked everyone haha it was sweet" 

K* is still doing amazing. She is so excited for her baptism on Saturday! She is the most sweetest and kindest person ever that is so prepared for the gospel it's not even funny! we taught her the law of chastity on Tuesday and we found out she is already living it! She said that even if she wasn't dating a member she would still be living it. yesterday we were planning on going to the temple visitors center with K* to watch the Joseph Smith, prophet of the restoration movie with her. We got to her house and found out she was super sick. Some members in the ward came and gave her a blessing that was super powerful. She said she was feeling a lot better after that and we ended up just watching the movie at her house. After the movie the Spirit was so strong as she testified that she knows it's true and she has no doubt that those happened. She explained how far she has come and how grateful she is for the gospel. She knows that because of what Christ and Joseph Smith went through she can be strong and not worry about her catholic family.

We also had a very powerful lesson with J* this week. She was disappointed because the bishop told her she needed to work on a few things before going to the temple. We came and showed her the Because of Him video and testified that through Jesus Christ we truly can repent and come unto Him and be healed. She was crying because she knows its true. That setback motivated her to move forward even faster now. She is flying through the BOM (Book of Mormon) and has read all of preach my gospel. She came out with us to lessons yesterday and it was so cool!

This weeek was just wonderful. We went to teach A* again and had dinner with Him. They are a native american family and we had Navajo Tacos for dinner. They were SO GOOD. Also this week it got up to the 100's twice! Yesterday it was 104! it's crazy how people live like this! haha And on Saturday we got to go to a baptism in Maricopa, it was Sister M*'s last area. It was really cool to watch a familly enter the waters of baptism. Well happy mothers day to all the mothers this week! I just want to say that I love my mom so very much and would not be the person I am today without her! Love you Mom!
