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,

Hermana Infanzon
