Another False Alarm

Hola Todos,

     This week was awesome! It just flew by, which is a little scary to see how fast my mission is going by. It's officially Spring time here in Kansas a.k.a. Tornado Season. :) Ah, It don't know if you all remember about the tornado scare that Hna Fernandez and I had last year but Hna Dahl and I had another one this week. On Wednesday everyone was like,"There is going to be a level 4 tornado today!" But the sky was nice and blue and it wasn't even windy! Then 5 o'clock rolled around and all of the sudden dark clouds started rolling in but it just looked like it was going to rain. Then it was the end of the day at Hna Dahl and I had just gotten home and we were grabbing something to eat and watch the Lightening storm that was going on outside when all of the sudden the Tornado Sirens went off!! Wow, let me tell you nothing will get your heart pumping faster than that!! We call the Branch Presidente to see if we could go to his house because he has a basement (we live on the top floor of an apartment building by the way). We knock on his door, I'm in my Pj's, and we soon find out that they hit the sirens for the wrong place and that the tornado touch down outside of the city so we were good. It was kinda of anticlimactic and a little embarrassing to see the Branch President in my Pj's.

     So This week we've been praying really hard that Heavenly Father would lead us to those that he has prepared and that are ready for baptism. Then on Saturday Morning we went to have a lesson with someone that we talked to briefly last week. And they're amazing! They are a really strong Christian family but they want more for their kids and the kids are so in touch with the Spirit it's incredible! They are now date for the 9th of Mayo and it was just a really big testimony builder to me that Heavenly Father is listening to our prayers and he is guiding us to his children (they live in an area that we never go to and it was a total random happenstance that we found them). We are also working with the family of our recent convert Vidi Hernandez and her family has so much potential and we are so excited!! :) We had a movie night with them last night and watch Joseph Smith: Prophet of the Restoration (on Netflix, the church just got even more awesome!) and the spirit was really strong and they are now reading the Book of Mormon! :D

     We had a lot of other awesome things happen this week but it would take for ever to write them all, sorry. I hope you all have a great week and that you can let the light of Christ Shine through you!
Con Mucho Amor,

P.S.- We found out today that one of the 12 apostles is coming to the mission in May!!!!!! AH!!!!! So exciting!!!!


Zone P-day we went bowling. And I was the only one who didn't know that you didn't have to wear missionary clothes while bowling! So I bowled in a dress and still broke 100, woot woot! :)

Movie Night with Vidi and Family!
One of the Recent Converts went on team-ups with us and we got Ice Cream after :)

Vidi got BAPTIZED!!!!!!

Hola Todos!

     This week went by so incredibly fast!! It does not feel like it should be Monday again, not that it isn't a welcome relief. :) Wednesday was transfers and we were sad to see some of our friends leave the Zone but I am so happy to still be here in Wichita West Spanish! It's the Best! Also Hna Jennings, my companion from the MTC, is the new STL for the Wichita Zone so it's been awesome seeing her like all the time! And we even had a mini exchange on Sunday!
  So this whole week we've been getting ready for Vidi's Baptism! She is so wonderful and her baptism was awesome. It was pretty stressful because we planned it in-between the two sessions of Conference, and the person she wanted to baptize her didn't fit in any of the white jump suits, and the one of the people giving the talks didn't show up, and the branch president was in Kansas City so he didn't even make it, and Then Vidi had to get dunked 4 times because her feet kept coming up! Phew, just thinking about it makes me exhausted again. But the spirit was so strong and her family definitely felt the Spirit which was all that we could really ask for and now our next course of action is to try and help them make the same decision that Vidi made (aka coming unto Jesus :D).
     Conference was great! I really enjoyed the Saturday morning session. It definitely gave me the peace and calm that I needed to go and face all of the craziness of Vidi's baptism. On Easter I had a quick exchange with Hna Jennings! We went and watched the morning session with a family in the Branch (in Spanish) and it was so much fun! Hna Dahl said that she wanted to watch it in English so she would actually get something from it and she got to watch it with Vidi. It is awesome having my old companion as an STL! We'll definitely be calling in more favors like that now that we have a leader who actually speaks Spanish! :)
     That night we had dinner with the Richardson family and we had a "Passover feast." IT was so much fun and it included fun, singing, and bitter herbs (yum!). So overall we had a FANTASTIC Easter weekend!
I love you all so much and I hope you have a great week!

6 Months in Wichita!!!! YES!!

Hola Todos!

So Sorry about not sending my email last week! I thought that I had sent it, ugh computers and I don't really get along very well right now. :)

I'm excited to say that we I am going to be staying in Wichita West Spanish for another Transfer with Hna Dahl!! Woot woot!! I feel so incredibly blessed to get another opportunity to stay here!

This week went by so so fast! We had a lot of this week with Sisters Conference out in Dogde City. It was so much fun to go out west again! I was like, "Let's just keep driving for another hour so we can go see everyone in Garden City!" But the other Sisters that we carpooled with weren't so down for that. Probably the best thing about Sisters conference was getting to see Hna Fernandez again!!! It was the best to be able to catch up with her and laugh about the times that we had in Newton.

I was really impressed as well with the General Women's Meeting on Saturday. The last two that they've had were really hard for me to get into but this one was really good and exactly what the Sisters that we brought with us needed to hear!

Sunday we had kind of a stressful morning because Vidi, our Investigator that, is getting baptized next weekend. Texted us saying that she wasn't going to be able to come to church because she found out that she had a huge project due in school today. We called her and talked to her and then she ended up praying to see if she needed to come to church. And guess what, she came!!! She is so wonderful! She told us that she decided to come to church because she wants to put God first in her life! #SuperPrepared

So that's pretty much the highlights from this week. The Lord is amazing and He is totally doing all of the work here! Please keep Vidi in your prayers! Thanks so much for all that you do! Please remember the real reason that we celebrate Easter and Share the Because He Lives video with everyone you know!
Con Mucho Amor,

We had a lot of Fun at Sisters Conference and on our way back! :)

Haha.... opps Email: 23 March 2015

So as I was reading my emails this week I was all, "Why is my mom getting mad at me for not writing to her? I sent out an email." Then I come to find out that this email didn't send. Ops my Bad. :)

Buena Dias Todos!

     Wow, this week went by so quickly and to be honest I can barely remember what happen... haha Mission Brain it's the worst!

     The things that I do remember happening this week are; on Monday the Zone went to the Zoo! It was a lot of fun and the Zoo here in Wichita is actually pretty good, which was super surprising. We also had to clean the car really because of Friday we got the dreaded Tiwis' :( The are a little box that monitors your driving and all that good stuff. So that was fun... but it's making me a better driver so that's a plus! :)

     When they installed the Tiwis' we also had Specalized Training and it was really good! I always learn so much from Prez Bell and the AP's. We also got watch the new video that the church put out for Easter this year. We are trying to share it with everyone because it really brings the Spirit so strongly of Jesus Christ and the really reason that we celebrate Easter!

     Also one of our investigators named Viridiana (Vidi for short) is progressing so much and we are so excited for her. She came to church and absolutely loved it! Oh BTW I got to give a 15 min talk in sacrament meeting. One of the speakers was sick so the Elders were looking for someone to give a talk so I was like ,"I can do it," 15 minutes before Sacrament Meeting for about 8 of those minutes I was playing the piano for the meeting. IT WAS AWESOME! :) Heavenly Father totes took care of me! I knew that I wanted to give a talk on the Sacrament but I left my Liahona at home. I was walking past a cart were we keep the Himnos and I saw a piece of printer paper so I picked it up and flipped it over and it was the first page of a talk give in this last general conference about the Sacrament!!! So cool!!!! Heavenly Father is the best! I was really surprised how easy it was to give my talk... I guess someone really needed to hear about the sacrament.

     Yeah so that pretty much it for this week... yeah that's really all that I can remember :) But I love you all and thank you so much for all of you're love and support! I hope you all have a great week!
