My District
Super fast week!

Wednesday we traveled about 2 hours to go to a district meeting in our zone. After the district meeting, my companion and I stayed around in that area all day until 4 pm when we had 5 baptismal interviews. It was a nice experience. The sister missionaries in Libres had a family of 5, and so we interviewed them. And all went golden! I interviewed one of the daughters and the father. Amazing spirit in every interview! I love seeing people open up their lives to the gospel!

Saturday we did a service project. A sister who just moved to the ward from Veracruz needed help moving into her new apartment. I seriously got an amazing work out just being there lifting and moving a bunch of stuff. We were so tired after a good 4 hours of lifting up and moving furniture and boxes and bags. When the sister looked at me with some curtain hooks in one hand and a drill in the other. Haha. She looked confused, so we stayed around a while longer as I drilled the hooks into the walls for her curtains.  I love service!

Tomorrow is another transfers meeting. My companion and I don't have transfers, but we get to go to the meeting to help the new zone get familiar with a few things and help them get back to their areas.

I love you all! The church is so true! I pray that we can study and listen to the General Conference talks again to better our testimonies!
