Roaming Sleepy Hollow...again!!

So, another week here in New Rochelle has come and gone! And as always the week was... wait for it... legendary! Haha, but for real it was actually a really good week and we saw a lot of success.

There aren't too many huge, awesome, insane miracles that happened this week, but a lot of little ones really make the difference! Probably the biggest thing that we did this past week was go to the Hartford Temple in Connecticut! It's outside the mission, but if we went with less actives or investigators it was ok. So we were able to go with 5 of our investigators and a couple less actives. It was such a good experience to see the holiness of the temple work on these people! One of our members named Hermana Calderón brought a family that she was trying to share the gospel with for a long time. After going through the temple and feeling the Spirit there, the family wants to listen to the missionaries and start coming to church! We are super excited to see where they go! The temple was awesome and sooo pretty! It's like one of my favorite temples NOW!:):)

Tonight is the baptism for Brayan and Yari! We are super stoked, but super busy and that's why this letter is going to be really short, but I'll be sure to send pictures and tell you how it went next week! They are so cool and so excited!

Roxana is also doing super well! She should be getting baptized not this Sunday, but the next. I say should because her parents are coming to town from Peru and supposedly they are super Catholic and crazy. Haha, so we are bit sketched out for that, but she is sooo solid and we know it will happen! Please pray for her! As well as her two daughters Carolina and Christina!

We had zone conference this week and it was awesome! I always treasure the opportunities to be able to learn from President and Sister Smith and other missionaries. The Spirit is always so present! Something that was said that I really liked was focused on what we do in the morning! Now this is one of the most crucial things ever! IF YOU ONLY READ ONE PART OF MY LETTERS READ THIS!! Every morning we have the choice if we are going to have a good day or if we are going to have a bad day. We HAVE to make sure our attitudes our good in the morning... that will define our lives. I know I talked about that last week, but if we wake up in the morning and are happy and have a good attitude then our life will change dramatically!

I love you all so much! I love the people in New Rochelle! I love life!

Oh and by the way, happy anniversary to my favorite brother and my favorite sister in law! I hope to have a relationship like yours one day! One day wayyyy in the future, haha, but still wanna be like you guys! Thanks for loving each other!;) Haha, and I hope you have an awesome day!

Con amor,
