Wow, wow, wow. This week has had its ups and downs, but when is that not the case as a missionary! So to begin, last Tuesday our whole mission got together to watch Meet the Mormons and have a mission wide breakfast! It was so fun to see everyone and the movie was so good! There is apart about missionaries and everyone was crying. It was crazy! We had a little fireside as a mission too, our mission president is amazing! He just knows exactly what to do to bring our mission together. On Wednesday, we had interviews, and that is where our Zone gets together and our leaders train us and we have personal interviews with President Taylor! They were so good. There were different missionaries in the zone that trained on different things and the spirit was so strong! We were all crying and we had a little testimony meeting, I love my zone! The interviews with President are good but short, but you can still talk about all the things that you need to.

Wednesday we found bed bugs again. AGAIN! I am so done with bugs! So once again we had to evacuate our room, deep clean everything and wash every single article of clothing. It took forever. That's all we did on Thursday. It was so frustrating for me because we couldn't go out and work at all because we had to fix the problem we had. Beg bugs are the worst. This week we also had stake conference and we were able to bring one of our investigators, Lily! She is amazing! Our zone leaders are also teaching her too. She speaks Spanish and English and she is awesome! She made us all lunch on Friday! She loves the gospel and the Book of Mormon, she knows that she is going to be baptized we are just waiting for the actual date!

This week was hard because we had meetings pretty much all week and we couldn't really go out and work because of the bed bugs. I was super frustrated at the situation! All I wanted to do was to go out and work, and to preach the gospel, but like the mission always does, it teaches you patience. Yesterday, at about 7:30pm, we finally were rewarded for our rough week as we found an amazing family of 4! They were an answer to a lot of prayers and they are just so prepared by Heavenly Father! I am excited to work with them and teach them more about the restored gospel. One thing that struck me so much about them is that the wife told us that her mother didn't believe the family to be the most important thing in life, but my companion and I were able to testify of the importance of family. The phrase, "A missionary is away from their family for 18 months to 2 years so other families can be together for eternity!" rings so true in my mind! I love missionary work and I love this gospel. 

Have a wonderful week, I love you all!
