Well this week was pretty exciting, I probably say that like every week but it true there is always something exciting that happens. Sure it’s real hard sometimes, but there are always miracles around us each and every day! Being a missionary is the best :) Well to start off Monday night we got a much anticipated knock on the door, I opened it and gave a big huge hug to the best dad in the world. Mine :) it was way fun to go out to dinner for an hour and it wasn’t weird at all. It felt totally normal just being able to talk for a little bit and give him a hug, and we got right back to work! This week we decided to venture out on our bikes a little bit and it was fun, I love riding my bike in a skirt, you get all sorts of funny looks ha-ha. We stopped to talk to this one girl on the street and as I tried to stop while introducing ourselves I kind of fell off slash launched myself off my bike. Suuuuper awkward. Ha-ha although if it’s not awkward, it’s not missionary work. Ha-ha. I also the privilege of trying Menudo this week. It’s the one dish that all the missionaries talk about and not all have the opportunity to try :P basically its cow stomach soup. I did OK though I just cut the chunks of stomach in to smaller pieces and pretended that I was eating something else. I survived!

We also got transfer calls last night. Transfers already! Yikes that went by way to fast. Hermana Romano and I have another transfer together in Cielito! Yay! We are super excited :) Elder Jurgensmeier is leaving though we are all pretty sad he’s been an awesome Zone leader, but he will make an amazing Assistant to the President :)

We had some really good lessons this week and one of my favorites was with the Armenta family, they have been investigating the church for a year or so and they are sooo close to being baptized. We had a super awesome lesson with them the other night in the front yard sitting in chairs under the tree and the starry Arizona sky. We talked about the atonement and the spirit was so strong. We also got some new investigators this week. The elders had been teaching this family and the kids got baptized in June, but they haven’t been coming to church for a long time. They just moved into our area so we thought we would start teaching them. The other night we were headed home and it was pretty late so we weren’t sure if we should stop by or not. But we decided we should so we introduced our selves and shared a short scripture with them. They came to church the next day, and the mom told us that she had had a really hard day when we stopped by and she felt like everyone had turned on her and she was all alone. She had just taken some medicine to help her go to sleep when we knocked on the door. she told us that the scripture that we shared was exactly what she needed to hear, and she knew that no matter what when everyone else turns away that god never does. She was very thankful that we had come to remind her about that. And I know that is true with ALL my heart. God is always there and he always loves us no matter what. I feel so blessed that I get to help remind people of that love that god has for them. It’s the best thing ever! Well I love you all toooooooons! And I hope you all have a fantastic week! Talk to ya soon!
