Hola familia :)
This week has been great. Tonight is the baptismal service of the Murillo family!! We are very excited. Jaime, Araceli, Sandra, and Fatima will all be baptized. Our dear friend Abel Tovar leaves for his mission to Monterrey this next week. He has had such a sweet conversion in the past 8 months and has helped us out so much here in our area. His family was the family that was sealed just a couple months ago. The whole ward is very excited for him.
We got back from Michoacán on Wednesday afternoon and have been getting back to the work here in our area. It was a long trip!! We were half dead when we pulled back in to Guadalajara but the Lord continues to bless us with strength :)
This week will be pretty fun. We are going to EFY with President Egginton on Tuesday to speak and teach some classes and on Wednesday we are also going with a bunch of missionaries from our mission to teach the youth how to teach the restoration.
I have felt so close to my Savior during my mission. I am growing closer to him and have been able to see and feel how much our Father in Heaven loves each and everyone one of us. As we drove through some tiny little towns in the middle of nowhere this week I thought about how our Heavenly Father knows and loves each person, no matter where they live or what they are going through. Its amazing to me how personal of a relationship each one of us can have with the same God that created us all. He love us all :)
Be happy and have a great week!
