 Should I give you all a run down on this amazing week?! OKAY :)
1. We went to the mall for P day last week. Of course we had an amazing time! SHOPPING :)
2. We had an awesome Relief Society dinner.. except I still don't know what people are saying so that's always good. haha  The picture was taken of Hermana Huntsman and Hermana Agyin and I at the party :)
3.  On Wednesday we biked all day long.. and we were biking to an appointment with one of our super GOLDEN families who are amazing might I add.. so we were biking, biking, biking...  We had about 20 miles under our belt  that day.. haha and YOUR HOMEGIRL got a flat tire about a mile away from our investigators house. So we of course walked... and walked.. AND HAD A BOMB LESSON :) So worth it. Then we we had about 4 miles to walk home.. in the dark.. but don't worry mom we were picked up by amazing members :) about 2 miles away from home :) So it was a good work out.. and oh yeah even though it is December. MOSQUITOES ARE ALIVE AND BITING. yeah got a few bug bites that lovely night.
4. RAUL GOT BAPTIZED.( hence the super cute pictures :) He is amazing.. he is 69 and is  the most amazing older man ever. He can even touch his toes! :) and do pull ups.. haha 
5. We got to read scriptures and hang out with little kids.. hangout as in PLAY FUTBOL.  All those little kids are BOMB at soccer... yeah it is in their blood. haha soooo cool :)

 TEA :)

Well..  Nothing happened this week. So this email will be brief :)
1. It's finally December.
2. umm.. Oh yeah!  RAUL IS GETTING BAPTIZED THIS THURSDAY :) So that's cool. I'm not really sure how that went down because I was on exchanges when it happened. 
3. I went to the police station.
4. I went to the court house.

Let me explain 3 and 4.  There is a member in our ward who was wanting to get a divorce and a restraining order. So we went along for moral support.

5. We have this super golden investigator :)  ______ She is amazing and we are just loving her...

I Got Coffee 

 Looks like another week under my belt!
What a wonderful week it was too :) Thanksgiving! CRAZY DAY!! I had 3 dinners. What! Such a bad idea just to let you all know. Don't ever think you can eat three Thanksgiving meals, because you cant. I had two traditional American dinners, then one Hispanic meal too! I am so grateful I got to eat a Thanksgiving meal. It didn't even feel like Thanksgiving.. it was 70 degrees.. hahah but hey it was such a fun day :) 

So right now.. oh wait COOL STORY:)
So we are teaching a man named RAUL. He is sixty-nine years old. There is something with old men. They love the sister missionaries! He calls us his daughters. Super precious! Anyways,  Raul has been taught  for about a year or so, and last week we asked him if he wanted to be baptized and he FLIPPED.  He was like no no no no no no.. kind of like that.. more or less ;) so we gave him his space and let him cool off. But then he came to church yesterday and we were sitting in sacrament meeting and he just starts bawling his eyes out.  I'm like what the heck is going on?! Because first off, I can't understand Spanish so I couldn't really understand what the talk was about. Then I was freaking out cause Raul is crying, and seeing old men cry is a sad sight let me tell you! But he was fine. He would just give us the thumbs up. So anyways sacrament meeting was done, and he just went home.

So then that night (Sunday night) all our set appointments cancelled on us so I said, "Hey lets go see Raul" So then we went and saw him and he was so happy, and I said "Hey Raul we just want to talk to you about one thing tonight and that's baptism". He got the biggest smile on his face, and said, " I want to be baptized for my Christmas present.  I know this because God told me today during church."  LIKE WHAT!  SO COOL..!!  Then we just talked to him and he really struggles with drinking coffee. So you know me, being quite bold as always. I made him give me all of his coffee.  I just took it from him.  He was happy  because he wants to do anything he can to be baptized :) SO YAY!  He is getting baptized December 20th.. ya know cause its almost Christmas!
Hopefully that story made sense.. if not ask me in 15 months and I will explain it :) 
 Everyone go check out this cool video..

go social media ;) 

I love my mission!!

#chocolate swirl

Hello Hello!!

What a wonderful week it has been! 
except I was TRANSFERRED! and you bet I balled my eyes out leaving my last area. I grew so close to the members of the ward, and to all of the people who we taught. I was heart broken to leave! but I guess I am needed somewhere else..

That new place is called.. KEMAH SOUTHWEST!  I am close to Galveston! but really I have no idea where in the world I am.. haha but I love it already! I am in a branch! Which means there are about 30 people who go to church! Be grateful for English wards!! I got a new companion. Her name is Hermana Agyin, She has been out for 10 months! She's from california. She is super nice and tall!! We are both tall! plus shes black and I'm white.. therefore CHOCOLATE SWIRL hehe so funny! but shes awesome! Her Spanish is bomb! Its hard leaving old companions, but I am trying to LOVE her as much as I can!! She is awesome! The work here is awesome too! Its a big adjustment.

OH MY GOSH, Name something funnier than a missionary with no voice. Nothing is funnier than that! So this past week I have been super sick, ew gross I know! I have like a smokers cough, and an awful voice.  YESTERDAY I woke up with no voice. seriously no voice. How does that even happen. So all day yesterday during our lessons I was silent. I have like a solid whisper voice. yeah so the missionary work is at a silent level with your home girl right now. I have no voice.. but yeah.. I'm trying to get better. I eat about 10 cough drops a day!
 I think I know why I'm sick too.. because we biked in the POURING rain. haha it was seriously so much fun!!  we biked all day.. and only got one lesson! So much for biking 25 miles and 1 lesson. But it was fun! I was soaked and covered in mud!! I would wave to everyone, I had over 50 people wave back to me! they probably thought how silly it was to see a girl in a skirt biking in the pouring rain, but hey they waved and it was fun! :) 

I love the area I am in! I am slowly but surely getting to know those whom I serve here. We have one guy, LUIS! He is straight out of CUBA and his Spanish is like.. not Spanish haha it is so hard...  but hey I extended a baptismal date too him, and BOOM he accepted it! amazing amazing :) oh yeah December 21st :) 

Oh and another thing, the gift of tongues is real. its amazing. 

I love my mission! except when I have no voice.. but hey they can feel my love at least :)

You guys are all awesome!! Enjoy Thanksgiving.. pray I don't eat any tortillas for thanksgiving :(

Enjoy Thanksgiving :)
Happy Birthday LIL RED. I love you!!
