FAMILY - THIS WAS THE BEST WEEK EVER! Our amazing family that we are teaching, la familia reyes, accepted the baptismal date of October 2nd, right after the general conference session!! We met with them three times this week and every lesson was incredible.. words can't even begin to describe how amazing everything was. It all just fell into place. God really is doing His work out here! We ate dinner with them last night and it was so fun! They really are my family up here and I love them so much. They are so excited to join the church, so keep on praying that everything works out perfectly!
We had zone conference this week which was wonderful! Got up and bore my testimony, of course I bawled through the whole thing, but there's something so special in bearing your testimony in front of other missionaries (and in English). The spirit was so strong and we all came out so rejuvanted and full of the spirit.
On Saturday we helped out all day at the food drive.. It was amazing! there were soooo many people who brought food! It was really touching. We filled up three semi trucks of food, and that was only at our stake! They did the drive all throughout the city. It was really cool to see the whole community come together and help out. My shoulders are soooo sore from moving the food though, but it was worth it :)

Well everything is going good! Life is sooo busy between la familia reyes and all of our exchanges, but it's good! Hard work is the best, even though we're running on fumes by the end of the week. But I'm so happy to be here! I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I feel so at home, i love these people and I love the work that we are doing. Have an awesome week!! Love you!
