This last week was amazing!  Me and Elder Gleed saw so many cool miracles!  We are teaching Monserrat and she is doing so good.  She was praying to know if the Book of Mormon was true and she said she saw a dove over her ( the sign of the dove).  It was so awesome to hear her tell us her testimony of the Book of Mormon and how she knows it is true. We are also teaching a Less Active whos name is Mirna she is eating up the Gospel now.  She was telling us how much she loves reading the scriptures and singing hymns.   It is so awesome to see the Gospel change someone. 

I loved General Conference all the messages we were able to hear.  I love conference so much!  I loved Elder Hollands talk about the Savior and the Atonement.  I have been really prayerfully asking and studying to find out really what is my motivation as a missionary? Why am I serving? I am serving because I can share the love of the Savior and His atonement that has played such a big part in my life.  I love my Savior.  It was so awesome yesterday to celebrate the day Jesus Christ changed my life forever.  I invite all of you to go to Him and to let Him change you to become the person He knows you can become. I love you!

Thank you so much for the easter basket I loved it!!! My email time depends on the week sometimes I could get my full hour and a half sometimes only 30 min.  Just depends what the zone is doing and stuff!! How was general conference? I wish I loved general conference as much as I do now before the mission.  I would of had so many seminary make ups...haha!

We live in a home but its basically an apartment.   It is a Spanish only zone, only spanish work and all the missionaries speak spanish.  Being a zone leader is HARD!  We don't get to proselyte that much because we have to deal with a lot of emergency situations with missionaries and stuff.  We always get home pretty late and never get to bed until late and we still have to wake up at 630. But honestly, I love it.  Heavenly Father really wants me stretching, he doesn't like when I'm comfy, haha I love it though.  He knows how I'm going to grow ands what I need to do in order to grow, so I need to not get in the way.

Love you so much!
