This week has been quite the ups and downs of emotions, but when is  the mission not! (I really need to get better at starting my emails!) First off, I was able to go back to my old area, Carrollton, for a baptism of Lily Quintana. It was amazing! I was able to help Lily out of the font after Elder James baptized her and she also asked me to speak on the Holy Ghost. It was a great baptismal service, and a ton of missionaries were able to return to see her be baptized!

We are teaching an amazing family right now. We showed them the "He is the Gift" They loved it and then we went back and taught them the Restoration. The husband of the family seemed closed off to us the first few times that we went over, but after we explained the Restoration, he opened up to us. He told us that he had started to feel a peace in his home since we have been stopping by. It was amazing, and his wife wants to come to church so bad, we just have to work out some problems because he works on Sundays, but we are praying for a miracle. They are really impressed with what we do as missionaries. We are also teaching a 22 year old that has been coming to church and he went to the baptism that the elders had last night. It was a really good experience for him and he has a lot of really solid questions. he searches for his answers as well. It's exciting to see someone my age be so excited in the gospel. Hector, our older man with cancer that we are teaching, is going back to El Salvador for 3 weeks so sadly he won't be here over the holiday season. He always makes us laugh, and the members just love it!

I was able to go on exchanges with Hermana Maxfield (like my best friend in the mission) and we just had a great day sharing the gospel, talking and catching up on all that has happened on the mission. We are contacting people now using the "He is the Gift" video and people love it. Hermana Merrell and I were knocking one day and 2 guys that were a little under the influence of drugs answered the door, but Hermana Merrell said that we needed to share the video with everyone so we decided to show it to them. After the video, one of them freaked out saying it was the best video that he has ever seen. It was super fun! It is those little laughs that make it all worth it! I sure love you all and hope that you are having fun getting ready for the holiday season.
