"ol St. Nick" (December 1, 2015)

well ill be in the zone san nicolas for christmas! how appropriate!! haha
so here are a few things that have happened this week.

saying bye to hna nelson!
my beloved companion hna nelson finished the mission and is now currently on the plane ride back to the USA. we had one of the best transfers so its kind of sad but this next transfer ill be training! tomorrow ill be picking up the newbie! so youll get pictures next week! itll be super fun!
so happy late thanksgiving everyone! for our thanksgiving we made deviled eggs! and ate flan for our dessert! we also made lemon pie and the sisters from centro were here so they shared it with us! thanks mom for sending me the recipe! its hit! haha
well not much happened this weeks in terms of the work because we had to travel again!! 
but we did find a lot of new people to teach! monica and silvia and miguel are good, neither came to church this week so we need to start looking for news. but i love contacting its always fun knocking on doors and meeting new people. you never know whos gonna answer!

my mission president is the one on the ground! hahaha
well one cool thing that happened was on friday the whole zone went to the mission home to have a special pday! we played volleyball, basketball (speed), balloon popping game, and then we made lunch, (chorizos) and after we ate we played relay races and to finish it up we played tug of war!! it was so fun! president zanni was getting so into it and when we played he like, grabbed the grass and pulled his whole team to victory!! hes such a boss. hahaha well after all the fun and games we showered and watched ephraims rescue which is a movie about a guy who has the gift of healing! his whole life prepared him to help the martin handcart company when they were crossing the plains and got stuck in the snow! well it was super wonderful! and a nice relaxing day!
so heres a cool story ill share. hna nelson and i were visiting a less active and she was going through alot of hard things! we didnt really know what to share with her so we asked her what her favorite song was. we sang "el amor de dios" which talks about the love of god. its page 57 in the spanish hymnbook. well after that we shared 1 nefi 21:16 which talks about how we are engraven in the lords palms. turns out it was page 57 in the spanish scriptures! little things like that are just little miracles to me. its crazy how god is so mindful of everyone. and he truly knows and loves us. i know he misses each one of us and longs for us to return to live with him. well i wish i could share more but theres a baby screaming bloody mary in this ciber and i cant even hear my own thoughts! haha poor thing. anyways, i hope you all have a great week and look for little miracles that god always gives us! love you all!
