Buenos dias! How are you?

All is well on this side of the world! The moon is SO beautiful here! It's way bigger because it's closer, I think, and it's been a full moon for the past 2 days. I feel like it's so close I could see the astronauts there if there were any ha. But seriously, it blows my mind what a gorgeous world God has given us. The creation was for us and I'm so grateful to have these amazing marvels to remember the power of God. 

Mama y papa, we have a cocinera (cook) now and I'm eating really well! (too well) I think I'm gaining some...but I don't care because it's so nice to have home-cooked meals. Hermana Castro is so funny about food! She loves these cookies they make here and she literally has them at all times. This morning we were studying and she said tengo hambre (I'm hungry), and a pack of cookies appeared out of nowhere! I think she's hiding them in her hair, shoes and skirt, cuz I have no idea where they come from! Haha it makes me laugh so much. My companions are the funniest.

Casey, the videos of baby Nathan are so precious! I'm dying of love for him, as usual. Can't wait to meet him in a year!

Funny story. One of our investigators S has a baby and she came to church with her yesterday. K is S's boyfriend and the baby isn't his but he wants to get married to S so as I was playing with the baby he says to me in broken English, "I want that baby to be mine. She will be mine." Haha! I tried so hard not to laugh.

Well, M was baptized and she's doing so great! We talked about missionary work in Gospel Principles class yesterday and she shared the most beautiful testimony on the blessing missionary work has been to her. 

We found a new investigator the other day who is also so prepared! His name is R and he told us he has never accepted any type of missionaries in his home before, but the day that we started talking to him he said he just accepted without even realizing it. When we came the first day to visit him, he told us it wasn't coincidence that we were there. It was an amazing experience!

Speaking of amazing experiences, this week we had a multi-zone conference. It really impacted me. I felt a spirit stronger than ever in my life of the power of the Atonement. How great it is!!! I can't explain my feelings that day, the best I can say is that it was freeing. It's hard to realize how weak we are and how much we need Christ's sacrifice, but at the same time there's so much hope in the literal definition of it. It saves one who wants the saving. I want it more than anything! I WANT to complete the potential He sees in me and help others be the person they are meant to be! The purpose of this life is to be happy, and I'm happy! I just feel great in my life. This is life eternal, to help others come unto Christ. This meeting wasn't only mission-changing for me, but life-changing.

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ, and will give Him everything to be who I'm meant to be. I love you all and I hope you remember the worth you have as sons and daughters of a loving Father in Heaven!

Con todo mi amor,

This is where I live! I thought you guys would like to see what my life is like! It's hard to take photos outside because it's dangerous to bring our valuables outside but I'll try to do it soon.

Week 26

Monday, November 11, 2013

It's been a good week! We have found a lot of new investigators and so we've been testifying a lot about The Restoration. I had a really powerful experience while watching the video with a new family on the power of prayer. The example that Joseph Smith gives us is so simple but so powerful. When we pray with pure intention and true desire to know something from God, He is BOUND to give us an answer.

We had Stake Conference yesterday, it was amazing! Our mission president, the temple president, and the stake president gave great talks! I am so grateful for my Church leaders here. They are so inspiring. They spoke a lot on standing in holy places and how we don't need to be in the temple to be in a holy place. We can be in a holy place wherever we stand if we always have the Spirit with us.

People are always telling us to be careful and safe and I really understand them and we are always being careful but something that's so hard to explain is that I truly feel safe. I feel like there is a literal bubble around the 3 of us and that we are being protected by the Spirit and by our own personal angels.

A and E came to Stake Conference and they really liked it. A reminds me of dad a little in his mannerisms and way of talking, and the relationship E has with him is similar to dad's and mine, so they are really special to me. A will be baptized this month and we are very excited for him.

We had a death in the ward this week. Hermana R lived in our pasaje (street/alleyway) and passed away. She was a cocinera (cook) for missionaries for years. The ward has really come together to support the L family and we have had many service opportunities to help them out.

Well, thats all! Love you bunches and I'll talk to you next week!

Challenge: Talk to one person about the gospel this week! Just one! And then pray for them. 

Con amor,
Hermana Infanzon

Week 25

Monday, November 4, 2013

How was Halloween? Everything is good over here. They don't celebrate it here but we had a cool Dia de Los Muertos. There were flowers everywhere!

Caseyyy today is our 12 year anniversary of being baptized! What a great day that was. Changed our lives. And look where we are now, with babies! Well, not me but kinda because I have "daughters" here haha. But how fast the time flies!

Nothing new, just working hard. I'm really tired but it's a good kind of tired because we're putting our all into every day! And feeling the Spirit so often is tiring because our spirits are way stronger than our physical bodies.

We have a baptism this week with M- she's awesome! Totally prepared. And we taught a family this week that asked if they could be baptized. Ahh sucha blessing.

Well I gotta go- we're gonna go play soccer as a zone and learn to make pupusas today!

Love you all!

Con amor,

Hermana Infanzon
