yesterday was just a very spiritual day.
in sacrament meeting our two recent converts received the holy ghost. and then the bishop gave an amazing talk about the gift of the holy ghost very similar to President Eyring's talk from conference.
our other investigators that were at church Reina and Sherly that will be getting baptized here in the next upcoming weeks, loved it and are so excited to also get the holy ghost.
last night we had a missionary Why I believe Fireside. they are super awesome. its a fireside for investigators or people learning about the church. and the recent converts share their testimonies and the missionary choir sings and our president and his wife speak. they are the best. so so spiritual usually everybody cries. so they had three recent converts already picked out to speak. one was Claudia Guzman. my recent convert from my last ward! i was so excited. but one of the other people speaking didnt show up..so about 5 minutes before the fireside started, our recent convert francelia, who was just confirmed a member of the church that morning, was asked to speak. she was so nervous she didnt even know how to do a testimony. we helped her and it was amazing. she shared her experience she had about a year ago. she had a dream of two muchachas knocking on her door and her letting them in. and how that was us a year later! it was so beautiful. i almost cried, but i dont do that.
I also had a really amazing study this morning about the Holy Ghost. how he is who purifies and sanctifies us. so this week i am ponderizing;
I've also started my 6 months to sexy..because ive gotten extremely fat on my mission. so im bound to eating this for the rest of my mission.

this past week was so many things. mostly stressful, tiring, meetings, exchanges, more stress, headaches and sleep deprived.
so last tuesday i had a leadership meeting that was so long. we learned a lot of new things that we then need to teach to all the other missionaries. its so scary because you dont want to mess up! so i had to practice that all week..
also i went on two exchanges this week with two other areas trying to help some other hermanas..
thenwas zone meeting where i had to train the zone on how to teach the plan of salvation and invite people to baptism. basically i didnt sleep all week.
butconference was such a delight. it really is a relief to know and feel the love of living apostles and leaders of the true church.
but yesterday was like the best day of my mission. our investigator francelia and her daughters that are getting baptized this month came to conference at the church and brought us flowers and food. i almost cried it was so cute. also a student from our english class came who has never even taken the lessons before. and the best, our investigators Reina and her family finally came to church for the first time and we have been teaching them for months. and they loved it! they are also getting baptized.
we also taught a lot of amazing lessons this week and helped a lot of people feel the spirit and understand Gods plan for us. the work we do really is so important, to make this know unto all the inhabitants of the earth.
