Dear Family and Friends,
Well I am glad to hear that yall had a great sacrament meeting. Everything is going great here in Ixtahuacan. I am continuing to work and love the people here each day. It is awesome being here. This has been a great week. Well last Monday we had a great P-Day. We went to Huehue to get some groceries that we needed. So what we needed and then we went to eat Domino´s Pizza. Oh I miss pizza so much. We don´t have anywhere to eat/buy pizza here in Ixtahuacan. Jajajaj it is a struggle but we get through it. So each month we get on chance to eat pizza. So after that we got on the bus and came back to our area. On Tuesday we went to visit Sandra and see how she is doing since she had surgery on her hip. She is doing well. We helped with some things that needed to be done around the house. Then we went with Arturo to teach him a little lesson and help fortify his faith. On Wednesday we were going through our area book and we found some information on old investigators with some members names. So we went with those members and asked about those people. We found 3 forms and out of the 3 we found one new family to teach. So that was cool. We also had the Clase de Hermanamiento. We had 2 investigators come to that. The lesson was on the Book of Mormon. It was a really great lesson. After that we had an activity. It is where there is a ball and you have to kick it into a box like thing. It has a net in the back. Anyways, the name of the game is futbol. But in the U.S, the name of the game is soccer jajajaj. On Thursday we had a zone meeting. It really great. We talked about our objective as missionaries. We talked about the importance of each point in our objective. Then the missionaries, who are leaving at the end of the change to go home, gave their testimonies. After that we went to visit la familia Garcia to start teaching them. Then we went with Arturo to see a reference but the reference wasn´t home so we schedule to go visit him another day. On Friday we went with la familia Domingo. It was so fun to be there. That is a really great family. They were less actives but now they have a month and a half of coming to church. They are a really nice family. We taught a little lesson then we taught the kids some games. It was really great to be with them. Then we went with Arturo to see another reference. Well that reference wasn´t home either so we went to contact. We had a little bit of success there. On Saturday we went to the aldeas. We visited Josefa and her family. We shared a scripture and asked if there was anything we could do for her. She said no. She is a super pilas member. She lives about 15 minutes, in car, from the church and sometimes she doesn´t have money to get a ride so she walks with her children. They are really cool! She is the only one we got to visit because no one else was home. It was crazy but that´s how the mission is sometimes. On Sunday we went to church and had so great meetings. I gave a talk in the primary over prayer. It was great! Later we had a cita with an investigator. We took Franklin with us. And we taught the lesson over the restoration. It was good but the best thing is when Franklin testified of the things we taught about. The spirit was so strong in that moment. His testimony helped a lot! So that was really great. Well I love and miss yall!

P.S. And yeah I get to see yall again in less than 2 months. I am excited. Time does fly when I´m having fun...which is everyday. I love you sis!
