Well, this is it. My last time telling you all what my new transfer is because I´m officially starting my last transfer....I´m TRAINING here in Higüey and being an hermana leader for two zones....It´s a good thing I won´t have any time to take it easy! I´m excited to work hard and work with a new hermana. I´m already sad I´m leaving her in the middle of her training! haha
Leo and Joanna were baptized and confirmed this week! To be honest, I was a little worried about what the bishop was thinking about them getting baptized because Leo is 10 and Joanna is 8, but the bishop was thrilled! The bishop asked leo to give his testimony in Sacrament meeting. In his testimony Leo said that when he was baptized he felt ¨glorious and an explosion...like BOOM¨ He also said that he was happy where he was at, in the true church and with God :) In Joanna´s confirmation the person giving her the blessing said something that really caught my attention. He said that she would one day be sealed to a preisthood holder in the temple. I thought that was really cool. We´re now workingwith their cousin, Mariangela who has a baptismal date for February and with their mom, Anarosa. They´re the cutest and I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!
This week I tried interesting food....one day someone gave us Pig LIVER and a different day someone gave us PIG TOUNGE. I´m going to be honest, I liked the tounge a LOT better than the liver....haha
I love being a missionary. I don´t think I´ll ever be able to say it enough. I love seing change in people´s lives. I love being able to say I´m a representative of Jesus Christ. I love being able to help people understand their purpose here in the earth. I love the people here!
Love you all and hope you always remember to read in the Book of Mormon and Pray EVERYDAY.

It´s been two weeks of soooooo many miracles. I won´t be able to tell you everything that has
So the reason that I didn´t write last week (I was never even going to say anything because I didn´t want you to worry mom....but it´s kind of a cool story) is because we had a zone activity in La Romana last monday and as we walked out of the church into the road a motorcycle that was driving on the wrong side of the road and going super fast so I didn´t even see it....hit me. It was a hit-and-run, so I actually never saw anything. I hit my head on the ground pretty hard and the wind got knocked out of me, so it was hard to breathe. Luckily there were still other missionaries inside the church and they came out
Campusano got baptized on Saturday! He was so happy and so excited! Hermana Jacinta (his girlfriend) was
There are a lot of people that are willing to listen to us right now and have the desire to be baptized. We have made a goal to talk about and invite everyone to be baptized we have really seen the results! We ended the week with 17 people that committed to make a covenant with God and be baptized! Now Hna Aleixo and I have to continue to be the instruments in God´s hand to help them and even more people come unto Christ.
We have also been focusing on the spirit. We are telling people that maybe they won´t remember everything they listen from us, but we want them to realize
We were walking in the street one day and a girl stopped us and said Ï always see you in the street are you Testigos?¨ (Jehovas witness) We said no and then we contacted her. We gave her a pamphlet of The gospel of Jesus christ and she jumped up and down and huged us so hard and said ¨no one has ever given me a gift so great in my life!¨ then she told us where she lived and we put a cita to visit her. But then the next day, we were walking way far away from where I understood she lived, and we found her house by miracle! She had read the pamplet two times and so we gave her a book of Mormon to
I was reading the talk given in General Conference called ¨By divine Design¨and I have been trying to see the ¨conincidences¨in my live....which really aren´t conincidences. There are so many!
