I love to see the temple

This week was so awesome and spiritual. A good last week in Conroe.

This week I got to go the temple three times! So we can actually go into the temple to sessions two times a year, once in June and December. and we can only to go to do baptisms if we bring a recent convert. and we can go to temple tours once a month, but only the outside. 

I did a session with my district on thursday.
then on friday, we took our recent convert, Francelia to do baptisms for family names. it was probably the most spiritual experience of my mission. she had the names of her dad, grandpa and grandma. we tried to find a male from the ward to baptisms for her family but we nobody could. so we went hoping there would be somebody there to do them so she could see it be done. we went and were just waiting to go in and the temple guy says that there was nobody available to do the baptisms for the male names:( so we were sad, but then three priests from and english ward walked in to do baptisms. and i asked them if they would do some names for us. they were happy to. it was a MIRACLE. watching the baptisms done was probably the most spiritual moment of my mission. everyone was crying. they even did it in spanish so she could understand. we also brought a less active who had been to temple in a year and she did baptisms also. it was amazing. 
then for temple tours yesterday we brought our investigator Paulina who is getting baptized with her mom in January! super good things.

this week was a blur..we had some serious up & downs. a real roller coaster week. im not even going to go into detail about the downs. but some good things were that our investigators paulina and maria came to church for the first time yesterday and now they are on track for baptism in january! :) yay

the Christmas season is here and i love it. missionary work is the best during Christmas.

i had some amazing chocolate this week. we ate with this german family and they gave us some. and then we got some chocolate from spain. it was the best. that was probably the highlight of my week tbh. 

we had zone conference this week. it was a lot of information which leads to a lot of headache. 
ive had really bad migraines all week and i thought i was having a brain anerism. so i had to go to the doctor today.

i loved the devotional last night. two of my favorite people spoke, Bednar and Ucthdorf
