MY COMPANION IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;) She told me I should start my email like that, so it just shows how she is!! Well let me tell you a little bit about her to start off.
…1… Tell us a little about Hermana Ellsworth…. Is she from around here or is she from CA?
She tells everyone she is from California, but she is really from Illinois. She thinks she is really cool because she lived in Australia for a year. (Actually that really makes her pretty cool.) She is 22 years old now since she had her birthday this week. IT WAS A PARTY! We ate 3 cakes and a whole thing of ice cream in one day and we gained 10 pounds each. LIFE IS GOOD HERE IN JUAREZ!!!! She studied in BYU Idaho and she didn’t like it too much because she is a partier ;) hahahahaha OKAY NOT REALLY! But she did study there and she is going to go to Utah State after to be close to Brigham City! ;) She is funny. And has cute clothes. And we may just be breaking the rules about not sharing clothes. She plays the flute. And well to be honest, she is really amazing and such an amazing example to me! One day you have to meet her. She has more love than anyone I have ever met! She really is a huge blessing in my life and we are working super hard together and are LOVING each and every day!!! WHAT ELSE COULD YOU ASK FOR???? :)
…2… Have you been learning to cook anything new lately – hopefully – soon? (We’re expecting real food – hahaha)
Well... That is funny that you asked, we put an appointment yesterday with some less active members to learn how to make tamales super good!!!! :):):):) WE ARE SO EXCITED!!!! We are thinking about putting a restaurant in Utah to sell tamales, because they are SOOOOOO good!! Other than that, well not too much! The thing is that I am just really good at eating the food (and gaining weight!) but I will try to write down a few more recipes!!
…3… Who was the family who had the party for Hermana Ellsworth? (she posted pictures with you guys & a little girl – we were thrilled)
Yes, one of the 3 cakes we ate was with Teresita and her family!! THEY ARE ALWAYS THERE FOR US WOW THEY ARE AMAZING TOO!!!! We ate cake and sang the “Mananitas” and really had a fun evening! It was really short notice about the birthday of Ells because she got here on Tuesday and Wednesday was her big day!! BUT IT WAS A BLAST!!!!! We ate ice cream for breakfast and then ate it in front of the heater because it was freezing!!! BUT IT WAS A GREAT DAY!!!!!!! We decided that this whole month is her birthday month!!!
AS FOR YOU, MY DEAR MOTHER!!!!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!! FELICIDADES POR UN ANO MAS!!!!!!!!!! BESOS Y ABRAZOS DESDE JUAREZ!!!
Let me just make a list of a few things that are going on!!!
-We are using our music talents A TON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hermana Ellsworth carries her flute with her usually so we can sing in whatever moment! It is really a huge blessing that we are together!! We have loved sharing the gospel through music!
-ROSITA CAME TO CHURCH AGAIN!!!!!!!! AND SHE ACTUALLY PARTICIPATES A LOT IN THE CLASSES!!!
-We are working to share the Book of Mormon more to everyone, and we are seeing a huge difference in our work and in the acceptance of the people!
