Hello family! 

I have a cute picture I wanted to send you but I lost my darn camera cord and my closet is a disaster. 911 emergency calling in all help. haha jk wish i could have you come organize our room mom! we are super clean, but we have been so busy that things are just kind of disorganized. im going a little crazy and might end up just throwing everything out. just kidding but a little serious. 

This weekend was so frustrating because its cinco de mayo today (feliz cinco de mayo) and everyone is carrying around mexican flags and are very drunk. so its hard to be safe and share the Gospel, but we are getting by and doing our best. I can't wait for you to come visit my mission and for dad to freak out about how dangerous the neighborhood we serve in haha. it reminds me of those times growing up we'd take the long way to the city so we wouldn't drive through certain areas... i work in those certain areas. But its awesome and we are super careful and i love it so so so much. 

This week we met with a less active man that told us he was forced to get baptized because he has a personality trait that will not allow him to say no. It was very funny I'm laughing just thinking about it. Then it was 100 for 3 days this week which was an adventure. I love the heat and the weather here though so I can't complain. Saturday only 2 people opened their door to us ALL day. one was drunk and one was high. it was one of those days that you wonder what on earth you are doing with your life. but then we got Chick fil a for dinner and a member gave me pan dulce because they know how much i love it and lotion because he said my hands are dry (haha latinos are so blunt) and that made my day. 

The best part of the week though was on Friday we were walking around and a few appts fell through so we were out contacting. This lady basically ran over to us and asked where she could get a copy of the book of mormon. She said she really wants to learn about God and the Bible and it was super cool. We prayed with her and invited her to be baptized- she committed to the last saturday of May. It was super exciting. Then, Silvia FINALLY CAME TO CHURCH!!! Which means hopefully she will be baptized next saturday by Danny Perez our recent convert. I am super excited I can't even think about it because I don't want to get my hopes up. Sheesh its going to be so great. 

Otherwise life is the same in YB. I will be skyping home between 4:30 and 5 my time, I will give you a call when I am turning on skype. The day will be kind of crazy so thats the only time that will really work. If you could please have Grammy and PopPop stay I would really love it but I understand that it is late so if they can't it is okay. 

Otherwise life is great in YB. I will be leaving in 3 weeks, president told me where I will probably be going. It is very far from the mission office, so don't send any packages there after next week until I get you my new address. Not that I need any packages but if you were thinking about it. 

Ok I love you all so much!
