Sister Training Leader!! in Las Puentes

Well they are here, changes they have came... and I am off and flying... here we go are you all sitting down... i am off to Las Puentes! a super fresa area!!!!!!!!! once again to soften some hearts and find the love for the prideful!!! but this time as SISTER TRAINING LEADER!!!!! I couldn't believe it!!! I recieved some personal revelation a little while ago about changes but you all know how I am and i don't like to believe things the first time and the Lord sometimes has to SMACK me in the face with things... well here ya go! we went to stake conference the day after I had divisions in Las Puentes and EVERY PERSON I met came up to me and remembered my name (from divisions)  said hi to me and asked me when I was going to come eat with them even a few that I didn't know... I was praying at this time about my new comp and for her to be prepared to receive me as a companion and that I would be prepared for the responsibility in my new area! Well there was my SMACK in the face I KNEW my change! Sure enough we received them last night and in a few hours I am off with ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS OF THE MISSION!!!!!! her name is Hermana Carrillo and she is from Senora its right below Arizona.  She lives a few hours from Debra and we already have plans to meet each other half way the whole shabang!  When we were in divisions we felt it... this is going to be an amazing time... but man I am sad to leave my home here in Felipe six months with my hija and super amazing friend Hermana Suarez!!!!!!!!! I am so proud of her the progress she has made every step we have made together! What an adventure we have had and we have never stopped and won't stop here! Cannot wait for the ones that come! HERE WE GOOOO!!!!! wish me luck! Love you all! Remember that changes are for the best.. we have to change to grow and put the bad things behind us to know the good!  
Hermana Carrillo

Claudia's Baptism

Well well well... only miss me when ya do somethin special I see how it is! hahah nah kidding! Sounds like fun! We ate tamales on Thanksgiving and didn't do anything I made my comp some french toast and wrote her a note in the morning because I needed to cook something hahahahaha!!!!!! Christmas ya it is going to be weird! we have your package. Changes are this week I am not going to be able to pack your presents look like an early Christmas for me!!! waho! hahahaha but yeah this is our last week together I am super sad!!!! We have 5 weeks in a row baptizing!  This week we have one planned but its going to take a miracle and a big one at that!!!!!!! We know it can happen! If we baptize this week we will have baptized every week this change! pres is so happy with us and every one says I am going to  be a sister training leader... I am super super nervous for changes i don't want to leave here, I am like a member after 6 months in the same area!!! yeah its going to be rough!!! but we have to change to teach and to learn! Although I am so excited for my next adventure!!!!!

This week we had the baptism of Claudia it was AMAZING!!!!! she made me cry with her testimony, and now her mom wants to be baptized!  She is such a sweetheart and going to have her baby in this week or the next is what the doc told her!!! super pregnant!!! They tried to baptize her in a chair but it didn't fly so they had to do it soooo slow! It was amazing to see the smile on her face and to have the company of the recent converts and feel the spirit!  The work of the lord is amazing when you do it in His hands, we just follow His steps and we make it! These people are so special so prepared by Him and I have grown and learned sooo much in these past six months! 

Bridge! that kills me! he is sooooo my little man cannot wait to be able to talk to him and all of you I showed pres the Book of Mormon that bridge drew and president loved it!!!! He even said that you have a very strong future missionary on your hands just keep him on the right track!
Glad to hear you know about the THE GIFT!!!! we are inviting at the least ten people a day to watch the video if you go into the page it is in spanish!!! haha it is amazing I love it we are planning a family home evening for EVERYONE contacts friends family members menos activos to watch it Sunday.  We are going to do an activity where they write what they want to give to the Savior this Christmas and really focus in how we don't need the material things its is going to be great! Emanuel the doc is doing great!!!! so is everyone else! There is so much work and people to teach we just have to open up our eyes and work in the hands of the Lord.  Thank you so much for your great example and help tell Madi I am playing right now for every baptism and I am going to play for Christmas I think. I wish I had more time to practice it is getting harder as time goes on.... hahah tell her to get on it and thanks for the music hope you all have a great week be safe and I love you!

Emanuel's Baptism

This week....two things 


WE BAPTIZED EMANUEL!!!!!!!! the doctor!!!!! he had his interview with president! and he passed and you will never guess what he did, he asked pres to baptize him YES HE DID! so president said yes and pres came the next day we had the baptism it was great and yeah! WOW I couldn't even believe it.  Everyone is dying that he did what he did, asking pres to come and it happened, but he said if he had to talk to the big man he wanted to have him there for his big day so he did it! 
                                                                  Emanuel and the Elders

 We had stake conference it was great Miguel, Pedro and Emanuel and going strong!!!! Rocio and Hugo got in a huge fight and Hugo blamed it on the church or something called the relief society pres told us to stop leaving them post its that they needed to take a break! I wanted to cry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but we cannot do anything we don't even know what happened. I am waiting for a letter from Alejandro from my first area one of my first baptisms, wanting to see if he has started his papers for the mish yet! 

My comp is amazing!!!! We are not going to be together for Christmas... two weeks we have changes I am super sad...... but change is for the best!!! We all have to get used to it in the mish!!!  
 Sounds like everything is great at home so glad to hear it!

Brock says you are mad about his present cause Bridge went nuts! bahahahha!!!! man! how I would have loved to see that one cannot wait until Christmas to talk to you all! but in the mean time things are great here! This week Pedro was baptized a 15 year old who really wants to turn his life around! He is super awesome and is stoked to teach his mom and little brother more about the church! It is going to be so fun to give him a missionary experience with his family!

Hugo is doing great!!! I was the happiest girl in the world! 

The doctor  went to mexico for two weeks and came to church on Sunday.  He is so different I have a very strong feeling he is going to be baptized this week!!!! Pray a lot for EMANUEL!!!!! he is really seeing the light and becoming humble! 

This week was an amazing one here but it is getting cold! Not like home though! haha good luck with that we are at about 40 degrees! Bought me some boots today because my legs are freezing! and keep getting wet I remembered Hermana Sumsion had some and always wore them in the cold! I went for it!

Hermana Bauer! 

Hugo's Baptism

Hugo's baptism was perfect! oh I wanted to just cry of joy the spirit was so strong and we are going to be able to go to the temple with them to do baptisms for the first time in this change! AAHH!! I am just so excited you better get your visa going so we can come down do go through the temple with them!!! haha they are so ready to start temple prep they are already asking about it! Rocio just got a calling in relief society and Hugo will have one shortly! He is stoked to get the priesthood and They are some special people!!! and what they have become they will never stop growing!!! 

Emanuel fell off the face of the earth!!!! we cannot seem to find him he has gone into hibernation or something but... we really feel like he is going to find his humility and come out of hiding this week!!! its been a rough  week with him and Miguel!... he drank this week BEFORE HE WAS CONFIRMED!!!!!!! he is going to have to talk to the bishop and yeah.... super migraine about him right now. 

We have another baptism this week as long as his mom says yes! His step dad is menos activo and his mom is christian he is super excited and way ready!!! Loves being in church and is friends with everyone! his name is Pedro! he was super lost and it is awesome to see him finding his little group! LOVE IT!!!! 

Claudia! She is just amazing has a date for the 30th she finally left the hospital and her and her baby are alright! They went to church Sunday and we have an appointment with her whole family tonight!!!!! She loves learning and is teaching EVERYONE!!!!! All the way to the menos activa nurse she had in the hospital! She is super prepared by the Lord!
 Well we are almost half way through this change! I don't want it to come to an end. I will have 7 and a half months here in the same area, oh how I am going to miss it here!!!!!! but changes have to happen.... its for the best, and I still have about three weeks! I am super proud of Madi she did so great!  Man the family just sounds great! Hope you have a great week, I love you!

Learning patients in our trials

This week has been a good one! wow I am sure leanring a lot this change and look up to Hermana Suarez for her great work and her diligence!!! She has such courage and has worked so amazingly through the trials that we have faced and the experiences that have passed! All that has happened with this investigator Emanuel (the doctor)! well we found out that he has some deep problems like... abortions....... it was really crazy! we had to call prezz and he is going to have to have an interview with him and a whole bunch of stuff but here is what went down! When we taught him about the plan of salvation it hit him really hard and he is still in recovery and trying to find his humility! He is a very prideful soul... and thinks he knows it all when it hit him that he had really been taking the lives of someone who chose to come to this earth just as him as we were teaching lesson 2 he brought up the subject! it was a very hard conversation to have for him and you could see the pain it brought him as we began to talk about repentance he wants to think he has been forgiven but he knows he hasn't that is why we could see the pain and he became very defensive! I think it was as hard for us as it was for him... I hate more than anything to have people hurt and to see his pain i just wanted to run... but I know what a huge potential he has and what an amazing person he really is! It really made me think about the repentance process we have to hurt.. we have to realize that it is wrong! we have to feel this, if not can we truly be forgiven?? No we can't we cant just blow it off and throw it away. Christ went through a process we have one as well. He told us he would never do another abortion but that he wanted us to leave and that he would see us Sunday.  He said the closing prayer and practically chased us from his house with the tears welling in his eyes. He came to church Sunday and was asking the bishop how he could be baptized, but he knows he has to work with us, he just doesn't want to because he knows we know... he said he wants a week to think about what we taught him. We are giving him this week and the bishopric are going to visit him. It has been a very interesting and a learning situation to see what pride can do to a person, even when they have all the faith and desire in the world to start over and be baptized. We really do have to humble ourselves to repent to have the spirit and humility is one of those many goals I have and now will forever be more focused on!

Hugo!!! Is going to be baptized Friday!  He is so ready and very excited! He came to church Sunday more dressed up than ever.  They are really working on getting into the habits of doing the little things like their prayers reading  and everything all of the time, even when times get rough! He wants nothing more than an eternal family. They just found out that Rocio is pregnant and he wants his eternal family more than ever now! I know that he passed through all these trials for a reason and we learned a lot as missionaries as well! Patience love and a new way to really show the love that we have for this family by giving him his time and space, but still being persistant! There is a fine line and we found it! 

We had a wedding this week as well!!!! Ana and Ruben were married! Ruben is ready as ever! Before they were married he wanted to listen... but was not progressing that well now after the wedding he can feel the difference he can see the changes and he understands what a promise is! He has really taken some big steps this week and we are so excited to see him growing and progressing in the way we knew he could before! 

This week was full of trials and testing of our patients but it sure paid off with more miracles than we could have imagine! I love you all! have patience with your trails the Lord is with you and he is waiting to see what you will do and he will bless you for your well doings! I love you all have a great week!!!!! 
                                                             It's Rusty's twin


Most spoiled missionary in the ward!

We had one of the two baptisms! but it was a really good week. Hugo we are working on him he is really lost after his daughter getting sick and all! but he will come around! My birthday was great our mission leader planned a meeting but really it was a surprise breakfast for me! We had a real Mexican breakfast chile and mushroom omelets with tortillas and then cake it was super fun! That was the 3rd cake then we had one more at lunch with Hermana Elizondo! it was a great day sure have some great people here taking care of me! 

 well... lets start with this fine p day morning! a scary scary man tried to kiss me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and then... he asked me to marry him yelling guera or white girl! guera guera c├ísate conmigo marry me marry me!!!! he would not let go! I threw him off he came back my comp helped me he came back! oh it was terrible! AAAAAAAAAHHH not okay! I do not want to kiss anyone NO ONE with this missionary tag on thank you and never in a million moons this drunk little man chasing me on a street! This street was like main street where the cars are going both ways by Hermies! We ran as fast as we could praying with all my heart he wouldn't be able to cross behind us! An angel helped us make it barley across that road! but we did! and yeah! that's about it! Then we went and got hair cuts... there is your exciting story of the week! I have never been so sicked out, scared, or prayed so hard so fast in all my life! (since those creepy guys in maveric joce!!)  anyways....

 This week has been a great one! we finally had our baptism with Miguel! he was sooo ready and so happy when he was about to take this first step! He actually met one of our new investigators that is progressing very quickly and very well and was teaching him all about everything he wants to help us teach him and he is really excited to be confirmed Sunday and work to receive the priesthood! It was an amazing experience to really see him change and grow to love the gospel as he molded his life to fit the standards!

We are working hard and moving along this week was really rough for Rocio and Hugo! He has just lost his steam to be baptized! after a week and a half of not being here and us not being able to see him he is really struggling to get back into things! He has lost the feeling and is not reading or praying like he was before. We invited him to have his baptism this week and told them we would work with them but it really did not work out they are very stuck on the fact that they are too busy for us right now and Rocio his wife thinks that we need to let him come around on his own! So.... we are going to be working on jut seeing them in general this week to see if we can get the spirit back in their home and get rid of some contention! This is going to call for some patience of us all but it is really going to be okay he will come around! Just lots of pray on our part and we are going to know exactly what to do! 

We have three great investigators that are progressing amazingly! Claudia Emanuel and Mariana! Emanuel read The Book of Mormon and principals in a matter of a week! BOM 3 days and princpals 2!!!!! Claudia! is sure this is what she needs. She is at all activities and church! She is applying everything! This Sunday she was rushed to the hospital because her baby wanted to come early! But she prayed and everything came out well! She then asked us if we could bring someone to give her a blessing! She really is so prepared by the Lord and between her little girl and baby on the way she won't be able to leave the straight and narrow! Mariana! She is moving along great and wants more than anything to change her family situation at home! She is becoming a great example for her family to the point that her son is beginning to change and listen as well! When in the first lesson he wanted to run us away! 

We have a goal  this week, we are going to find these other people that are waiting for us! We know the Lord is preparing them and they are out there! We are going to continue to work together united obedient and strong with nothing but the spirit on our side! I am so thankful for my amazing companion! she is a powerhouse! What a testimony she has and a story that can change the world! She is growing and changing so much! I cannot believe we have one change together! So ready to keep working together in this change to come! we never stop learning or growing! 

I am so excited for this new cambio! hope they don't surprise us with a change..... love you all hope you have a great week! oh and I had a good birthday! thanks everyone for the wishes! I ended up with 4 cakes a surprise breakfast! made tortillas for the first time! and 4 cakes! I have been named the most spoiled missionary of the ward!... guess that happens when you have almost 5 months in one place on the mish! Man I am going to miss this ward! These people are amazing! Love you all have a great week! 
          More birthday fun!!


Miracles and hard work!

The package made it! shoes and all! I am dying to open them! hahah loved the cake box! ya kill me! SO CUTE! haha sounds like everyone is great! SO glad to hear it! personal progress! I have to say you should share the experience of how it can bring people together and change our groups of friends and really who we are and what we are doing, even when we are not doing it! Think about it when I was focused in my goals finishing it and working on it, I was meeting with good friends working on my goals and all! I was with Kenzie Nuttall and yeah! when I wasn't I found other friends strayed a little bit away from good friends and stretched my boundaries! I think that it keeps us in line! not only doing it but the goals when focused become life goals and that helps us stay on the straight and narrow!
                                            New shoes!! hope the new one look like the old
                                            ones in nine months!!

I love you so much thanks for everything! hope you have  great week we are having weeks of miracles here and working harder than ever! The Lord is dropping them all down on us and we are running! Its some big responsibility! But I am loving every second of it! And to see the changes these people are making!!!! I am so excited for the baptism of Miguel! he is so ready and so excited! It's going to be amazing! I love you! MMUAH!

Pray More and worry Less!

Well this week will be one to remember and it all started with the bathroom door of the shower falling off on me Tuesday morning, from there on out nothing could go right! But we just pushed right on forward and we found some souls, that you would never imagine a sweet lady just leaving cancer who we are going to teach! Another suffering a terrible marriage who wants nothing but to know how to have to Lord in her life and she came to church on Sunday and many other small and simple things that are going to lead to great miracles! But the big fall was the Saturday baptism! I am going to past the story how I explained it to my mission president! Remember this is Hugo! The Spouse of Rocio who we baptized about 2 months ago and we are preparing to complete their family! Here the story!... 

This week has been quite the week of learning and trials for us all, but we are pushing along and I have all the faith in the world that the things that happened this week happened to make Rocio and Hugo stronger! The day before the baptism of Hugo this week Friday their family entered the hospital! Their baby had what I would imagine is bronchitis! She was very sick and had to stay in the hospital and has to have a parent with her at all times. Rocio and Hugo both work so they are taking off alot of shifts right now! As soon as we heard of what happened we began our prayers and fasting! She became better very quickly! The bishopric and many brothers and sisters have been in contact with them! They should be leaving the hospital today! This was one of the most challenging things that have ever happened to me in my mission to watch a family doing everything right walking on the straight and narrow have to go through this! I know they are going to be strong! I wanted with all my heart to run to the hospital in the middle of Monterrey to see them, but don't worry we didn't! To put a smile on my face and work was hard for the first time ever in my mission because they were the first thing on my mind! But the ward really acted and they are being taken care of! The prayers helped a lot and I cannot help but thank my Father in Heaven for how fast she is progressing and going to leave the hospital because the first thing they told us was a week and a half! This will be a little more than 4 day! We are really working in the hands of the Lord! We are doing the training but I don't feel like I have much to teach her! Hermana Suarez is growing so quickly is teaching so well.  We couldn't be doing the things we are and receiving the blessings we are without this unity and love that we share for one another and the work that we are doing! I am so thankful for the revelation and work you do as our president! The Lord really works right through you because we receive exactly what we need when we need it and the people in the areas as well! I am so thankful for this work all I am learning and seeing and the Amazing people that these investigators are becoming! Hard times are hard times, but they are good times as well, because it is when we learn. I am grateful for this week and know it all happened because this family the family guevara villa rreal is going to be a very strong special family in this gospel! and we had to learn how to work through the stress and worry about the rest!

This has really been a challenging week but I have learning so much! First by applying this wonderful quote! (Thanks Brock!) Pray more and worry less!!!!! We really applied this this week and without our prayers and yours and dont know how we would have made it! This past week was worth it for all that was learned.  I know that this week is going to be an amazing one, that we are going to take care of this amazing family! Have the baptism of Hugo and really complete their family! They deserve these blessings and we all have challenges for reasons! It is then we have to grow, but when the hard times come we have to act and look for a spark of faith and light it! Really find that love for whatever your doing and show it because each and everyone of us have a reason and purpose so if anyone of you are down having a hard time remember that you can take the smallest part of faith and use it to act that is when you will see the miracles! I have really gained a testimony of this from a broken shower door to an empty baptismal font I know we will see more miracles that I will be able to tell you all in the week to come for the diligence and love that we learned to use and show in this week! I know each of you can do it as well! So smile always and don't forget your purpose! Love you all! Your amazing! I hope you have a week full of happiness and can show the Lord you each know you have a purpose here in this plan! MMUAH! Have a great week! Hermana bauer

Cats, baptisms, and a wedding!!

This week was great, but super hard! We have 4 cats that think they need to live behind our house... yeah it is killing me.... I don't know what I am going to do!... I am dying a little bit Satan is working really hard to get us down all the way to my allergies, can ya believe it, but its all good.  My compa hija and I are great!   We are getting along super great and sooo happy she is an amazing teacher and really has a way with her bible something I have not developed I am going to learn a lot from her. haha 

We have two baptisms coming up one on the 12th and one on the 11th of October.  One is the husband of ROCIO!!  We are going to complete their family I am sooooo stoked!  IT is going to be perfect and I want to come back for when they get sealed!!  ahhhhhhhh The other is a almost single man in the middle of a divorce who is so ready to start his life over and he is so ready to be baptized.  We are also planning a wedding in the month of October to complete the family of Ana! her boyfriend has returned, at first we were super sad... until he came up to me this week and asked how he can have an eternal family and how he can be baptized as well, yeah it has been a crazy week of miracles, but the adversary won't let go every lesson we have falls through no one in the street wants to listen, but you make every day a great day and the Lord blesses you- because remember there are blessings around every corner! 

I hope that you guys can take three questions each to conference this weekend and really listen. I am going to do the same. I know that the Lord really answers us and that each of you are going to be able to receive the answers you need. I am so glad that you all were able to listen to the Woman's conference I didn't get to go I am waiting for the talks to go up, you will have to send them to me! I have such a strong testimony that our Savior lives and really talks to us all each and every one of us through our prophet! We can take a lot or a little from this weekend that is coming up and we should take advantage of it make it a family event and enjoy every second of it. Not just the prophet but every one of his apostles that are going to speak to us. They are prepared to answer what we need and bring us the revelation the Lord has prepared for not only our time but our personal lives! This is my challenge for you this week -that you can really take it to heart, pray, read study listen and ponder upon their words and look for your answers, what the Lord is telling you, because yes they are talking to us all but specifically to you!
                                                                         Nine Months
                                                            Nine months down nine to go!

MY NEW COMP!!! Hermana Suarez

Well as many of you know we have seen changes. I have very little time to write this week so if you do not get a personal letter this week do not feel bad or take it to heart I love you all extremely! Okay lets cut to the chase! Who wants to know where I am, who I am with and whats the story!!!!...


I am in Felipe Carrillo still!!!!!! SAME AREA!!!!!!! that's right I stayed! I am super excited I didn't not change, but they did take my daughter from me! Hermana Zatarain has gone... but you will never guess where too...

MY FIRST AREA!!!!!!!!! she is in the exact place I started with a great comp! and doing awesome! So it is great!
                                             Last day with Hermana Zatarain

MY NEW COMP::: is MI HIJA!!!!!! another daughter I am training again! This means that I will have 6 months here in this area before they even think about changing me!!! Her name is Hermana Suarez! she is  from the state of Mexico! and she is 20! She is a sweet heart and has a little sass to her super funny! We get along great!
