Im doing great mom! I love it here, makes me sad to think time is coming to an end, but still got a good chunk left, so gotta keep working hard!
Lets see what happened this week. Dolores is a good area really good potential, its progressing little by little. Working hard to always be finding new people to teach and give seguimiento with those we have found.
So we went back to Santa Elena for the results of my companion and she had dengue, But she is a lot better now we were able to work this whole week. ON friday morning we had a meeting with Elder Alonso a 70, its always cool to hear him speak, he has such a spirit and learned some good things to put into practice to be a better missionary.
A little bit of everything happened this week. Found out the nephew of our recent convert passed away he was only 2 years old. Its sad how it happened, the baby had a super high fever, someone advised to give him shots (but it wasn't a doctor) so the parents injected the child, but it wasn't the correct dosage it was for a bigger kid, and the baby went purple brought him to the hospital to help him, got better for a bit but then passed away, couldn't handle it. It was really sad to hear, and our convert is taking it really hard! Its kind of worrying me, so we are trying to help her all that we can.
On saturday we got invited to a party for a baby's birthday, had tamales, a big slice of cake and manjar (like gelatin) it was really good, and i was sooo full! On Sunday we had our big first stake conference in san benito! organizing and sustaining all the presidencies, it was super cool, now san benito is a stake!! woohoooo!!!! So exciting, and that day the church was packed! up until the point that people had to hear outside, it was awesome! as a branch of Dolores we brought 45 people, which is pretty good!
So it has been a good week! Oh yeah! so last night we had to travel to San Benito again to stay with the sisters because today we traveled to coban. We got to the bus stop at 6:45, no bus was coming by to flores, and we were there for an hour waiting, we started panicking, because we needed to travel that night because we would be leaving to coban at 3 the following morning. We were praying our hearts out, asking advice from our branch president, he came out to help us. We moved from the stop to go to the main road, just in case to see if they were just passing straight through and not going into the pueblo. We waited a little bit more, and a bus passed by! and we got on! Heavenly father answered our prayers and our panic went away. I was worried i was going to have to call the zls and actually tell them we didn't get on the bus, but thankfully we didn't have to!
So very grateful for prayer, and Heavenly Father listening to them. Such a blessing!
Had interviews with president and hermana curtiss, things are going great and love talking with them!
hna curtiss says we have a beautful family. I gave her one of the postcards from mn saying thanks and gave her one of the mocassin keychains she loved it, and i gave president a bag of mn bear poop and the card that says minneskeeta we bit ya you betch ya, he got a good laugh out of it and loved it as well. They say thanks for sending me the package :)

Love the mission, and as far as my birthday and christmas, well I dont really want a whole lot because I will be going home soon and dont want to have to bring more things home, I was thinking of something small, and that maybe you could send money so that i can buy recuerdos :)
