Wow this week has been nuts! It was incredible though. So on monday we went bowling with one of the zones here and it was awesome. The Lord blessed us a lot cuz me and my comp did really good ha. Then on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we went on an exchange with three different zones. It was crazy we were flying around but it was super fun. I love going on exchanges you always see so many miracles and its fun to be able to bless peoples lives 1 on 1. Anyways then friday was INSANE! We had to move a ton of missionaries, take some peeps to the airport, do some mid transfer exchanges, and fix some things. It was really crazy but super fun. We love going around and doing things for the missionaries its the best. Then just this morning we had a surprise mission reunion. Elder Corbridge came and gave us such a great training! He basically talked about two things. 1) Conversion and 2) How to teach. It was awesome because it was just so simply put. He really raised all of our visions and he really helped me see clearer what my purpose is as a missionary. He talked to us what we want to do out here on our missions. The answered I had is that I just want to do what the Lord wants from me. So I loved receiving a clearer vision of what that is so I can apply it everyday! But he is a stud and it was really neat to get to know him for a bit. Anyway it was just an awesome week I have zero complaints. It couldnt have gone any better. Well we had an amazing lesson with some just incredible investigators that someone came in at the end and ruined it really bad. They are causing lots of problems but its nothing the Lord cant fix ;) But other than that it was perfect! 
But something that really stood out to me this week was the spirit and following him. That gift is absolutely the 2nd greatest gift our Father has given us (I wanted to say 1st but then he told me the Atonement is 1st ha). But With so many things this week I was able to see the spirit lead me and guide me to bless others. There is nothing that brings me more happiness than that. But it was really cool because really I am not anyone special but the spirit was able to lead us and guide us in what we needed to to with these missionaries. It was super cool and as we were humble and just followed the spirit the fruits were way better than I could have asked for. I got some weird impressions and I was afraid to follow them but when I did I was always blessed. I know that the Lord does lead us and guide us. That if we want to be a tool for him to bless others he will show us how and that as we follow always the guidance of the spirit the fruits will be so much better than anything else we could have done. Anyways I love you all so so much and I hope you look for that in every decision. What would the Lord have me do. I promise as you do you will be blessed and happier than any other way. Anyway have a great week! Love ya peeps :)

Man this week has been absolutely insane! So this past week we had a meeting called 3 day. So all of the leaders in the mission came down and we had meeting every day from 8-4. It is mostly pres and his wife giving trainings and some of the other leaders do stuff as well. It was amazing tho (it always is). We learned a lot and definitely got super uplifted. Everyone left feeling super inspired and ready to bless our little sheeps. But it was super fun having all the homies together. I know almost everyone in the mission now so its super fun to see them. Especially the leaders cuz we have been together a long time. O ya and we did a musical number with the president and his wife. It was so cool it was only the second time they have ever done something like that so everyone was shocked and loved it. We practiced at his house for like 45 minutes the night before and it was the best 45 minutes of my life. It was hilarious and we kept messing up and didnt know what to do etc. It was awesome to see them not in their president status. But also we all got to work with different guys too which was really fun. Then after I got to go back to Brownsville for a couple days! It was awesome I got to eat with one of my convert families. They are the missionaries best friends. They are that family that all the missionaries love and go eat there all the time so they are super solid. It made me happy to see that. They will be going to the temple in August so i will be there as well. But it was awesome to back down there I have missed it a lot. Honestly tho this week has been kind of a blur. We have been insanely busy getting all this stuff taken care of. But lots of fun with the peeps and we had some great moments helping out some missionaries. Those are the most rewarding moments in the mission :) But ya thats about it. I hope everyone else had a super good week. Remember to enjoy the little things! Life is crazy and hectic like this last week that i had but it was one of the funnest of my mission. Just look for the good in every moment and choose to be happy always. I love you all, have a great week :)

Whats up eryone!

I hope everyone had a great week and stayed warm. I have been freezing in the mornings its been getting down to the 40's ;) haha. The weather down here in the winter is incredible i love it. This past week was a blast. We had a couple baptisms it was incredible. One girl was interested because her friend was always so positive and happy and she wanted to know why. Well she has changed a ton and she feels it now. It has been great to watch her grow as she lives the gospel. The other is the daughter of a reactivated family. It is so cool to see them active and living normal gospel lives again. They are a wonderful family. Being at their baptism was so great and the spirit was very strong. We also had a meeting as a leadership and it was awesome to see the peeps. All the sisters that were in my district are now all leaders and there are lots of new ZL's so it was really fun to see everyone. After we went up to Laredo for a couple days. I have been dying to go up there and it was my 1st time. It was awesome! The atmosphere is really cool and it is exactly like Mexico ha. We had a really good time and went really hard at this soccer court. Ill send a pic it is total video game status, just super cool. Along side a bridge and its a hockey rink with goals and all that. Then we went over to Corpus after and i got to work in my old area! It felt amazing to be back up there i love that place. I got to see my RC family too. One daughter still hasnt gotten baptized but we had a great lesson and she is going down on the day of love! I am super excited!!! The mission has been going great just going around chilling with everyone. My comp is awesome too we are having a really good time together. Things are just wonderful tho. We are super blessed and I couldnt be happier about sharing the gospel with everyone. Joy level off the charts right now! Anyway I love you all so much and I hope that your next week goes better than mine. Good luck (Taken voice) ;) haha take care!
