Dear Family and Friends,

This week has been a long and cold week but I still loved it. Here is my week:

Monday: We had a interesting P-Day. We cleaned our apartment and
forgot we had to go shopping. (Well, Elder Sanchez did, I just went
with him.) So when we went shopping, there was a Root Beer called
"Brighams Brew"!! It was so funny. Never in my life have I seen a
Prophet on a soda bottle hahaha that was a first. After that, we went
a hung out with other missionaries from the Sharon Park Stake. We
played basketball, soccer, and........ LACROSSE! Another missionary
had a stick and a ball and said I could use it!!! Wow, that was a
miracle. I missed playing lacrosse!! It felt weird at first but then
it all came back haha. Later that evening, we had a nice lesson with
Hermana Cruz. She loved the video we showed her and she committed
herself to keep drawing near to Our Savior.

Tuesday: we had a good amount of lessons today :) we got to teach the
Esparza family and we actually gave him a blessing because he has been
sick. So I had the opportunity to do that in Spanish. After that, we
went to Ward soccer and had a lesson with Hermana Gabriel. That was
nice because we were able to invite her and her family to come to the
Provo City Center Temple with us for next week. On the way home (we
were walking) and someone said hi and I felt prompted go back and
offer them a blessing. We came to the door and knocked, the sisters
accepted the offer. 1 hour earlier, their mother just had a stroke and
it was super intense and they weren't sure everything was going to be
okay. We couldn't enter the house so we gave them blessings on their
door step. It was one of the most spiritual experiences ever.

Wed & Thurs& Saturday: both were very sad and cold days
because we had no lessons. Even our dinners cancelled on us!!!!! It
was so sad but we didn't get discouraged.

Friday: Today was filled with mostly planning and meetings. We had DTM
and it was amazing because Elder Griffin is the new DL. It was nice
and very spiritual. After that we had lunch at Smokehouse and it was
free!!!! Soooooo good. I attached a picture so you can enjoy it too :)
after that we went to some lessons for Elder Griffin and then we did
weekly planning. And then we had really good lessons with David Amaya
and his family. They can talk to you for hours!!

Sunday: Sunday was amazing! We had so many people come to church. It
was awesome to have a packed Gospel Principles class. And after
church, we had loads of lessons and invited so many families to come
with us to the Provo City Center Temple. It was amazing to see many
people excited about visiting the House of The Lord.

Sorry this email is short!!! We have to go shopping and then district
activity!!!! But I love you all and I hope you have set spiritual
goals for this year and I know through the gospel of Jesus Christ, you
can accomplish them all.
