November 6, 2017

This week I got transferred! I did not think I would be transferred because it’s my last transfer and my companion has had more time in the area but I got sucked out and I’m now in a really big ward! It’s called La Conquista A. My companion has been in the mission 4 months. He is from Argentina, and his name is Elder Giménez. My district now is my companion and I and 6 sisters! I feel like it will be a lot of work to take care of a district of only sisters! My last transfer will go by so fast because my companion and I are new here and the Mission President took out the other two elders and sent us here. So we don’t know where the members live and we don’t know where the investigators live. It is a lot of work and this ward is in a very rich part of the city...but don’t worry, rich people need to be humbled just has much as the poor do – haha! Love you bye!

This week we had stake conference. It was super good and our mission president was there too. Also this week we are going to have a zone conference with our mission president Wednesday so my companion and I got here in Culiacan yesterday and we are staying here until Thursday working here with the missionaries for two days. Also, we only have one more week of this transfer, so I’m about to enter into my last transfer. I’m going to miss the mission so much. I´m going to receive a new companion because I have had 3 transfers with Elder Cano.
There have been big challenges in the mission but I´ve moved forward and learned lots of new things. This week is a little short but next week will be longer. Love you bye!

Sorry I haven't written much lately, but last week I got to give a baby blessing!
I´m still learning sooo much. I´ve passed through a lot of trials here. I´ve really had to learn to be patient and loving with my various companions, the members, the investigators, and other missionaries. Sometimes people do things that cause problems for me but I have to have more strength and value. 
We have two investigators that at the last minute changed their minds about being baptized hours before their baptisms, so this week we only had 2 baptisms instead of 4. It has been a little difficult week from week and sometimes I feel that I can´t make it to the Lord’s standard of how he would act and say. Sometimes I don´t know what to do, but I do know that I´ve got to keep going and take things one day at a time. I feel that the Lord puts my faith to the test every moment and that I´ve got to move forward even if I feel that I can’t. Love you lots mom!
I will send the picture of the baptisms next week. 
Love you!

We didn’t feel any of the earthquakes here but there have been a lot of hurricanes here in Mexico. We had a baptism here this last week. His name is Julio Cesar.

It just seems like there is no time for anything. We have to keep moving forward and forward everyday. Also, this week my companion and I found a scorpion in our house! It was just a baby but who knows if the mom is near by. It is the time of the year when insects come out of the ground because of the rain.
