My week was great! The investigators are doing great and we have found 2 new ones this past week which is really cool. They are family members of 2 members and we were refereed by the families! We had a great lesson with them and we invited the 2 ward missionaries to join us. It was such a great experience and they all came to church this past Sunday!! How cool right? The Bishop is the best and keeps the ward very organized! We actually have our ward Christmas party this weekend and we are super excited because they always make good food! If I had to pick a favorite member in the ward, it would be Brother Espinosa! He is my BEST FRIEND!!! We have such a good time and he told me when I get married he is going to come to Utah! He also said that if I ever come back to Texas, I can stay with him! I just love him so much!
The baptism was great and ran very smooth! Damian is so happy and it was such a spiritual moment for me! He has the ultimate goal of being sealed in the temple which in a year is possible! When he goes to the temple, I will be able to go even if I am in a different area!! How cool right?
About Christmas...I don't want anything specific! Whatever you guys want to send is great!!
I can't believe I have been out for 117 days! It's crazy that I have had that much time on my mission already. The transfer come next week and that is nuts! If you don't get the package sent out here in the next 2 days, you should wait because if I get transferred it would be hard to get it if it arrives after I have left!
I love the quote you sent me from Sister Marriott. It was so powerful and I am glad that I have had the opportunity to be born into the gospel! I have seen how much of a blessing it is in my life and I know it will continue to bless our family and my family later on!

I love you mom and I am so glad to be out serving! It is a minuscule sacrifice for everything I have been blessed with! I'm glad you are all doing well back home and I love you all so much! I try my hardest everyday and something I have definitely grown in is Patience! I am trying to be more patient with my companion and my investigator. I love the Lord for everything I have and the opportunity to become who He wants me to be! I'm glad you are doing well and I hope you know how much I love you. I am glad to have you in my life! You have helped me grow up and become who I am today!Thank you so much! Thanks for all you and dad do for me! I love you guys so much!
Have another amazing week! LOVE YOU TONS!!!!
