New Companion

Hermana Estrada

Doctor Pepper Sisters

20 New Moms ;)

Oh my goodness!!!  Kiela is almost leaving for the mission!  What is going on??  She just got her call!!!!  I am so excited for her and well, for everyone; the mission is the best thing ever!!!!!!!!!!  Make sure all "my girls" know how much I miss them!!  And that they are looking great!!!  It is crazy that things are moving around so quickly back at home!  Nothing is happening, but everything is happening too!  hahahaha

This week was a lot better!!!! (If they keep getting better I am never going to come home.) hahaha  We are working better with the ward, and it really is going to show here in a few weeks - I know it!  The Lord always completes with his promises and I know that in his timing we are going to see progress in this area!!!

1.   Did you get a new apartment with this your transfer?
We have a new little house!  And it is super nice!!!!  We are pretty much in heaven; our bathroom is like amazing!!! hahahaha

2.  Is you comp a fun girl or serious?
My companion is great but really different than me; she is really quiet but happy!  Sometimes I feel I need to shut up and let her talk more, but we are working it out :) hahaha  YOU JUST CAN’T GET ME TO BE QUIET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hahahaha

3.       How are the referrals going, any new prospects?
SEE BOTTOM!!!!!!!!!!

4.       Do you have a new Mom in your new area?
I HAVE ABOUT 20 new moms that help so much.  This whole entire ward is just the kindest and happiest.  I am really happy to be here.  I wish we could see some more success with our investigators, but the Lord will complir!  Sabemos que si :) 

Quick story:  So yesterday we went to church and well nobody came once again.  To be honest we were really disappointed and felt like we had failed because we had worked so hard this week.  But anyways, we left to work and to try with everything we had.  We were praying in our hearts with everything we had, (to be honest, I was almost at the point of tears..)  We FELT HELPLESS!  But we passed by the house of one of our old references.  And it was a miracle - she was  there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  She was just getting home as we knocked on her door!  (YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN OUR SMILES WHEN WE SAW HER)  She wants to learn - she wants to come to church - she is so excited to fill the gap in her life.  MIRACLES HAPPEN!!!!!!!!!!!!  And the Lord knows what we need and when we need it!  Sometimes we have to feel weak and helpless so that we will enjoy the blessings more!!!!!

I KNOW THE LORD LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  HE IS OUR EXAMPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

I love you all; have a great week!  I’m off to play SOCCER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hermana Estrada

Megan's new companion and cook?

New Area & New Companion :)

How are we doing this week, fam fam???  The sun is shining here and sounds like it is there.  It is starting the hot season so pretty much all my sweaters are in my suitcases and aren´t going to come out until.... well, probably October!  WEIRD HUH!!!!!!!  But I am getting tan and everyday I am looking and sounding more like a MEXICAN!!!!!!!! :)  one day maybe... hahaha 

Like everyone knows we are in a new area; it actually is right next to Estacion (my old area).  We go to the same capilla and everything, but this area is a lot different.  There aren´t hardly anyone in the streets and hardly any stores either.  But I am close to home and I see a lot of familiar faces!  Even though we are close, we hardly ever know where we are at....  We are learning the streets and trying to find houses.  But why not right??  It´s part of the mission of being lost ;) hahaha  We started at pretty mucho zero.  Our area book didn’t have anything in it!  NOTHING!  hahaha  But we are finding and knocking a little (don´t tell) and soon enough we will be pros!!  hahaha

My new companion is from Guatemala!!! (yup another Guatamalteca) haha  Her name is Hermana Estrada, and she is great!  She just started her mission, but she is an expert!  She is a little quite and really patient. (pretty much the opposite of me! )  hahaha  I’m just kidding! Haha  But we get along really well and are happy to be companions.  I think I have become crazier from being her companion, because she is so calm and quite! (someone’s got to be the crazy one right??) hahaha

The ward here is really great!  We have 4 missionaries in this ward! (2 Elders and us)  It is something new to get use to, but I like it!  Sometimes I wish I was an elder and could wear pants!!! (hahahahaha)  But there is a lot of work in our area, and our ward is really involved in the Work!  It is incredible and such a blessing! 

So yup.... that is my week!!!  IT HAS BEEN SO HARD!!!!!!!!!!!  But great :)  There is nothing like seeing the miracles of the Lord, it makes everything worth it!  The Savior knows how it feels to be in a brand new area and be lost always ;) hahaha  I am growing and enjoying and smiling always!!!!!!!! :)

I love you and you are always in my prayers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Great SKYPE Yesterday

Are you missing me yet??   Hahahahaha  It was SOOOOO good to see you yesterday!   The funny thing was, at first when I was talking to you I had no idea where you were in our house!  Like I couldn´t imagine it!  WEIRD!!! hahaha  But it was good to hear your voices and make sure everything is going good!  The familia Carballo wanted to make sure you know that I am doing great and they are taking care of me :)  They really are amazing and such a miracle!  It was great that you got to meet them...  They were so excited to see you and try and talk to you. 

First off let me tell you something I didn´t have enough time to yesterday!  I AM SO GRATEFUL FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE EVER DONE FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!  You have no idea how much I appreciate your examples and your help!  I never wonder if you are there or if you love me; I know without a doubt in my mind you guys are always there.  I wish I could explain how much I love you and care about you.  I know it is so hard to be far away from each other, but can´t you just see all the miracles the Lord is working in our lives!  He is the reason we are happy and progressing, we HAVE TO go through hard times or we will never progress.  This is part of His perfect plan He has for us!  There isn´t a doubt in my mind that I was put in our family for a reason; I know the Lord knows EXACTLY what we need and when we need it!

I don´t have much to say because, well... we talked yesterday... but I am getting a new companion tomorrow!  Today Hermana Soto and I are going to Juarez to pick them up and then we will return in the morning!  Her name is Estrada!  We will be in the area “Libertad”!  Libertad is right next to Estacion!!!  YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  I am close!!!  I am a little nervous to be in a brand new area, but I am mostly excited!!  The Lord trusts me (scary but true).  He only puts us to the things we can handle!!!

I love you family!  YOU ARE INCREDIBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Con todo el amor en mi corazon...
