Buenos Dias Hermanos y Hermanas!!!!
Wow Life is SO GOOD!!! Hope everyone had a great week :) Know that your fav missionary in the PNW is only slightly sick because she's been soaking wet for the past week straight but we're pushing through because we are seeing the hand of the Lord EVERY DAY.
I dont have a ton of time this week, so this letter is basically going to be explaining the pics because they truly say it all. Being a missionary is the best because all the members love you and they dont even know you so they just give you stuff. Mostly food, but also random things like crocheted hats and giant quilts with Star Wars characters on them. Not complaining thats for sure!!! One Hermana also made us pan de muertes which is somehow so good and not normal bread??? Mom maybe you can explain to me because it looks pretty regular but I've eaten like 2 pounds of it this week.
Other major news, Fabian was BAPTIZED!!!! yyyyyyyaaaaaay. We are so happy about this because he couldnt be baptized with his wife stephanie because he has an ankle bracelet, but he decided he was going to do it anyways and he was SO HAPPY coming out of the waters and entering that covenant with our Heavenly Father :) He was also so blessed because he didnt die and wasn't electrocuted by the bracelet and it still works so he wont get arrested either. MIRACLES.
This week we ran into a family that speaks Arabic (so so cool. We're learning how to speak it, we'll keep you updated). Lessons are kinda hard because they all speak arabic except their kids know some English so they try and translate so it's kinda a crazy time but they're so awesome and loving and said we can come back anytime :) This Arabic book of mormon marked the 4th language of book of mormon I've given out!!! Love the melting pot that is the United States.
Oh yeah, Halloween last week was super fun! We went to the stake center with all the missionaries in our zone for the last 3 hours of the night and we first ate our FACES OFF and then we got to PLAY SPORTS FOR 2 HOURS AND I WAS SO SO SO HAPPY. I miss being sporty and actually doing things all the time so it was a stress reliever for sure and so so fun :) Sad news was we brought a bunch of pumpkins but all their tops fell off with the crazy driving... whoops.
Moral of the story this week was full of blessings, from members, from investigators, and From our Heavenly Father. I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is HIS WORK. 100%. He guides it and He guides us every day and I am so so grateful to be a part of it. Keep looking for miracles in your every day lives because they're there and when we see them it makes life all the more enjoyable :) Love you all!
Con mucho amor y oraciones,
