It`s been a long time, without you my friends, but I`ll tell you all about it when I see you again!

Well, here it is. The moment we`ve all been waiting for. And I don`t really want it to be here! I miss my family completely, and I miss real food (like toast? Somebody make me toast please!) But I`m going to miss the family I have made here. And more than anything, I can`t believe that my time has come. And I probably won`t believe it until I get on the plane!

I`ve actually been pretty sick these last few days, I spent all day yesterday in bed sleeping. Everybody (even the nurse) remind me I only have one week left, and how it`s so terrible I got sick at the finish line. I`ve made all my mission without getting sick like this! But hopefully it`s getting better and I`ll come home just fine! And endure to the end!
I thank my father in heaven for this AMAZING oportunity to be here in Nicaragua. To love the people. To preach the gospel. I would not change this experience for ANYTHING. It`s been hard and hot, and people can be rude. I`ve cried and begged that things could change. But I have gained so much FAITH and PATIENCE for the work. I have learned LOVE and CHARITY for the people and for the gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that the atoning power is REAL. I have seen it change the lives of a lot of people, and I have seen it change my own life a thousands times. I am a way better person than who I was at the begining, and I hope I can take what I`ve learned, and keep this relationship with God to become an even better person after.
I`m excited to come home, but I think my family is more excited! I`ll be just as excited when I see you all. But I am sure grateful for things like facebook and “whatsapp” to keep in touch with all the my family and friends here too!
Well… we`ll talk more next week. I love you all!

Josefa and Rey were baptized!

Go big or go home!

So, at the begining of my mission, I told you all about the BBQ. The zone that baptises the most in a month with 5 weeks gets to have a BBQ at President`s house. And guess what

WE WON!!!!!  Our little band of 12 missionaries, we won! Wow. So awesome!

So this week was HARD! We found a ton of new people… and the next time we went back with them, they all had excuses of why they couldn`t meet with us. They decided to be Catholic again. It wasn`t their time… I don`t know. A bunch of hard stuff. But that`s alright, because we`re ready to work like crazy!
This past week was Hernandez`s birthday, so we ate at a members house for dinner, and worked with the Elders (not for her birthday, but just for divisions). We also found this awesome tree that is completly burnt. It was pretty awesome.
So, we are preparing for the baptism of Josefa, and maybe her son Rey. We are so excited for them! She is awesome, and the good part is that she is already good friends with a lot of the sisters in Relief Society! So we`re pretty stolked for that!
I love you all! I`m excited to see you all soon!
