La Vida Loca

Hola Todos!
This week was nuts.  But I am glad that I was able to have spiritual experiences in between. Here we go...
The week started off welcoming in all of the new missionaries for the Transfer.  I had a chance to practice my English:)  The new missionaries are awesome!  They always have so much excitement and faith.  That is why I loved being a trainer so much.  It is like a renewal of how I felt to begin my mission.  Anyway when President Perez spoke to them In the welcoming meeting I had to translate.  I think I may have said Spanish words without realizing it and that brought a few laughs and President told me I have to work on my English.  I am glad that they are telling me that instead of I have to work on my Spanish haha That was fun.
We had lots of meetings this week. In one meeting I felt the spirit so strong.  I was able to bare my testimony on what helps me to love the mission.  I shared that I love seeing the changes in people.  It just makes it all worth it when you see someone else happier, when you see someone else with hope and light in their eyes.  Whether it be an investigator, your companion, or other missionaries, it is just awesome.  
We have had little time to work this week but we contacted a really firm catholic lady.  She was blown away that we don´t get paid for what we do.  She was atheist but after trials in her youth she prayed and converted to Christianity.  While we continued to talk and bare testimony, she softened her heart and listened more and more and more.  I felt the spirit.  That is what counts.  I know she did too.  Successful contact for the week!
I love you all tons! I hope you have a great week, and you will all be in my prayers.
