Holy Hermanas...

This week has gone by so fast but i feel like so many things have happend!!!
I had a case of zombie eye for a day which was real fun! And i also completed my fourth month in the mission! wahoo!! 

All of the elders in my district sang my favorite spanish love song to me ahahahaha!!!!! We also had stake conference yesterday which was really good! 
This week me and Hna Figueroa really just tried to enjoy everything and be happy about everything because we had a feeling that one of us was going to get transfered. And we had so much fun! Last night we got a call for transfers and hna Figueroa is now in Xalapa and she is tranning a nueva! And guess what is even crazier??? Im here in the same area but with Hna Black, another american, she is from provo and she is just great and she helped me so much back when i was in xalapa! I was super excited when i found out and than the more i thought about it the more scared i got. Two white girls in mexico together and we both know about the same amount of spanish....How are we going to survive this?!?!? AHHHHHHH!
 
But i know that we are going to work so hard and be extra careful and have a lot of sucess!!! I LOVE YOU ALL! The church is true! Miss you more than life!

Lichis:)

Dont worry im alive! Sorry i didnt get to email yesterday because my email account wasnt working and i was so sad so i got permission to write today! yay! This week we had a super long conference with President Saucedo and his wife. It was good and they just talked about some rules, health stuff and mission things. I also had the most delicious guacamole twice this week. Heaven. And we have been living off lichis!!!! A dream come true we love them so much! 

We had a fun activity this week with our distric and a few investigators! ill send a picture. Also a man declaredhis love for me and i was so confused so i just pretended like i didnt understand hahah. what?? Our whole district had a baptism this sunday and we were supposed to but it didnt happen so we felt kind of sad but hopefully next week. The Elders investigator still wasnt sure if he wanted to get baptized because he really likes to drink coffee and he is 10. So hna figueroa and I said that we would sing a song at his baptism thinking that there would only be a few people there, but it was combined with another ward so there was tons of people and i was so embarrassed but it was fine! Also the weather the past week was so nice and fresh feeling but its super hot again today.
i love you all! The church is true!

Not much to say...

i dont really have a lot to say about this week. I got sick Tuesday and then Hermana Figueroa got sick so we had to take a few days of rest. We are feeling much better but we still are a little sick. Everyone here thinks if you drink lime and honey it will cure any sickness. Also I think their solution for everything is to amputate. why? I dont know.
The highlight of my week was yesterday! Even though none of our investigators came to church with us. But i got to skype some of my family and it was just the greatest thing ever! Sorry this email is so short.... But i love you all!

5 de Mayo

I got to start my week off in Xalapa with my Bestie Hermanas and it was truly so great! And we got to stay an extra day because our visas weren´t ready to sign the first day we were there. Dream come true! It had been way too long and we just needed to be together! The bus to Poza Rica got in about 12 and i was so tired. Then the next day we had to do divisions with our sister tranning leader. It was good but i felt weird being in my area without hna Figueroa... it just wasnt the same or as fun.
Our house is gross. Its been a missionary house for a few years and it just doesnt get cleaned good and i hate it. There is always little ants every where crawling on us in our beds and just every where, but ive gotten used to that. I was so tired one night and as i was getting ready for bed i lifted up my pillow and there was a weird fuzzy thing under it.....i was a little creeped out by it so i scrapped it on my name tag then squished it a little with a bobby pin. My worst nightmare. The sickest worm came out of both ends and i wanted to die!!!!! SO SICK! I was having a heart attack and so was my comp. then i moved my bed from the wall than there was more suck on the wall! I went on a rage and had to clean the whole house because i was so disgusted. I just want to get out of that house. All of the elders in our area have new nice houses and i want to trade!

Today we went to the centro. Its like a big market place that is fun and also scary. Hna Fig and i were looking at clothes and then some how we took a turn for the worst and ended up in the area with all of the meat. So many chickens just hanging by a hook in their head and huge cow legs! Guts on the floor and it smelled awful because it was in a hot building! We were trying to hurry and find our way out because we both wanted to barf! It was so confusing and took forever! Then we went to the mall and ate pizza and i kind of felt like i was back in America then i looked out the window and just saw jungle....oh Mexico.
I LOVE YOU ALL!!
