Week 52 You'll Find New Life. Pinky Promise.

Hola de neuvo :)

Como estan?

This week has been awesome!! Hna H is getting ready to head home on Wednesday and Heavenly Father has lined it up perfectly. After weeks of sewing the reaping has finally begun!

On Tuesday I had the best exchange of my whole mission with Sis H. She's incredible! She's been out a few months and her perspective and love and attitude was so refreshing. Couldn't have come at a better time. We talked a lot. And she snapped me out of my little funk :) Miracle.

Wednesday we had Zone Meeting in Tucson (roadtrip wootwoooot)! It was awesome as always! Two focuses were our March Challenge and the new Easter video that came out yesterday (more on that later)! As a mission in the month of March, each companionship is trying to teach Lesson One (The Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ) at least once a day. Easy enough, right? haha... As a mission and as a companionship we have seen so many miracles as we have been more restoration-minded! It's such a cool goal. Hna H and I were trying to do all 31 lesson 1's before she goes home... we're close but it's gonna be tight!

Thursday. Oh my gosh. Thursday. So. Along with the march challenge, our mission president's wife, Sis Passey, has a goal to go out and teach with every sister companionship..... and Thursday.... was our turn...... Oh my goodness. The whole morning I couldn't focus, I was just terrified. When comp study rolled around we both just flopped on the ground and napped for 5 minutes. Put two perfectionists in a high-stress situation... mmmm... good luck... But the lessons all went great! Sis Passey is so awesome! The thing I probably love most about her teaching is her tone of voice. She could be talking about how to make an apple pie and yet her tone of voice still manages to bring the spirit straight up to the doorstep of your heart. So cool! Afterwards we rewarded ourselves with a trip to Patagonia to see grandpa, Max, and Willy :)

Friday.... WE WENT TO THE GILBERT TEMPLE! YUP! THAT'S RIGHT! We blew straight on past the mission boundaries and got Iscela to the temple :) We got permission, so don't freak out, mom. But Iscela got baptized back in October. After lots of chaos we were able to go with her, her husband, her son, and her mother in law. Twas a fun, loooooooong roadtrip. So so worth it. She was able to be baptized for her grandmother :) I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

OH! Definite highlight of my mission so far. So. For some miraculous reason my body has been able to inhale massive portions of Mexican food until I feel like I'm about to pop for about a year.... But if you throw in some Chinese food and Indian food on the same day..... Forget about it. I spent most of Saturday out of commission, throwing up every last garbanzo bean. Another confirmation I was truly called of God to serve Spanish Speaking.
I'll stop rambling, but you all should definitely check out the new easter video/website:

It is an amazing gift that we have the power and privilege to be baptized for our loved ones that have passed on so that they may be happy. We can do something for them that they can't do for themselves. It is also an amazing gift that Jesus Christ suffered, died, and was resurrected for all of us so that we may be happy. He did something for us that we couldn't do for ourselves. In Gospel Principles yesterday our teacher said something so direct and so profound. If we refuse to let the Savior pay for our sins, we have to pay for them! Don't remain in darkness and despair when the price has been paid with such love and purity. Turn to Christ. Follow Him. You'll find new life. Pinkie Promise.

I LOVE YOU ALL! Be happy :) Happy (almost) St. Patrick's Day!!!!Hermana Lund
