Jose got baptized and off to Albuquerque I go!

The last few days have been crazy! First off, Jose got baptized!! WOOO!! He is the sweetest. I’ve never taught anyone that loved the Book of Mormon more than he does. It was a real privilege to get to be a part of his journey. He is on to great things!

I got a call from my mission president a couple of days ago asking if I would be able to come up to Albuquerque and serve in an English ward for the remainder of my mission. It was a bit of a last minute, emergency situation. I drove up this morning, said goodbye to Hermana Wallis and Hermana Simpson (whom I will miss very much) and met my new companion, Sister Vasquez. She is super cool and I’m looking forward to all that these next few weeks have in store!

It was also the semi-annual “Missionary Monday” this morning at the Albuquerque temple. All of the missionaries from Santa Fe, New Mexico to El Paso, Texas got to attend a session and it was amazing as usual. I love the temple and I especially love Missionary Monday. It was good to get to see old friends and feel the spirit of peace found in that special place.

That’s about it for this week’s update! Have a very Happy Easter and a great General Conference weekend! Love you guys 🙂

Back in El Paso!

So transfer news came out last week and I will officially be finishing my mission in El Paso, TX! I’m now in a trio with Hermana Wallis and Hermana Simpson! They are both great and this first week together has been a blast 🙂

I’m already missing Hermana Duran like crazy. That was a hard goodbye. Our time together was way too short but I’m so thankful for all that I was able to learn from her while we were companions. She’s is incredibly hardworking and I know she’s going to go on to do great things. She impacted me for the better and I know she’ll continue to make a positive difference in many others’ lives. I couldn’t be more proud of mija.

Attached are a few pics at White Sands Missile Range with my old zone, a few goodbye pics with some of my favorite people in Las Cruces and a pic of the new Rio Grande Mesa dream team at a service project we went to this week (our ward is SO pumped to have 5 missionaries haha).
