Service with a smile.....and a surgical mask

Hey errybody,

This week was yet another busy and exciting week. Lots of service and fun activities. So as usual, here are some of the highlights!

-On saturday morning, we went over to Lucho and Milagros`s house to help them clean their house. They live in a tiny house with a car garage because Lucho is a mechanic. We went with the Elders and our president of our branch. We cleaned that dang house until it shined! My hands turned completely black from all the spilled oil and everything. We also used a jackhammer to break up some of the concrete to help lay down some tile in their kitchen. It was some hard work, but they were super happy when it was all finished.
-We planned an activity called ¨noche misional¨ which is like an activity night put on by the missionaries. We shared a message about the worth of our souls and then we played games all together and ate chocolate cake. We had about 15 people in total. And most of them were investigators! We are planning to have another one this friday too. Everyone loved it because it was spiritual and fun.
-2 of our investigators came to church on sunday! Really that was a miracle for us!!! Everyone always has an excuse about not coming to church. We were so happy when they came!
-We got to help our friend Rosa make appetizers for a party, (that`s her job) and it was really fun to help her out and get to know her a little more.

Lauren, I am so proud of you that you conquered your fear!!! Way to go!!! When I get back, we`ll have to make a trip to ride roller coasters. Your pictures from the talent show are so cute! Your hair and the flowers look amazing! I hope you have an awesome week, wow you`re almost done with school, that`s amazing! I love you beebs!

Mom and Dad, I`m glad that you got my email ok. I was worried that the computer got all messed up or something! But thank goodness everything is ok. Yeah I can`t believe that I`m pretty much half way done. It was kind of slow but at the same time I just think to myself, I just have to relive that all over again and then I`m home. It`s crazy, every day is insane but lots of fun. Some days aren`t fun, there is a lot of responsibility, but I`m trying to make every moment count. Because yolo. But I really do like it here, it has made me so grateful for the things that I have. even the small things! I love you guys and I hope you have an awesome week.
