I had actually seen a light, and in the midst of that light I saw two Personages, and they did in reality speak to me; and though I was hated and persecuted for saying that I had seen a vision, yet it was true; I knew it, and I knew that God knew it,...

Hi Family!

This week went by super fast. It was good though. Well, for the most part.

I had a really spiritual experience at our Zone training Meeting. At the end, the Zone Leaders talked about how as missionaries we're trying our best to help Heavenly Father's children make it back to him, and how sweet that reunion will be for each of us. We watched this video of military moms and dads suprising their kids and at first I didn't understand what it had to do with anything, but then I realized that we're going to be even happier than that when we see our Heavenly Father again. I read a talk this week from the last General Conference and someone quoted President Benson when he said, ''Nothing is going to startle us more when we pass through the veil to the other side than to realize how well we know our Father and how familiar his face is to us.'' I just get chills reading that! I can't wait to get to that day and I like helping others get there too. After the video was over there wasn't a dry eye in the room. We quietly went outside and sang ''The Spirit of God'' as we faced the temple. It was really powerful.

Oscar is quickly becoming my favorite investigator. He says that he feels more calm and at peace since he's started coming to church and meeting with us. He feels a change in him and he said other people have noticed it too. I love hearing people bear their new testimonies. Oscar came to Inussa's baptism and to the talent show we had this weekend!

Inussa's baptism was awesome - and he looked so good in white! The Elders' Quorum President came up to Oscar and said, ''That's gonna be you one day - future member right here!''

He just smiled and said, ''Yep, that's why I come. I wanna live better. If I didn't I wouldn't keep coming.'' Ahhhh I love him! During the service the four of us hermanas sang ''Lord, I Would Follow Thee'' and it was really cool. 

Saturday was the talent show! We had planned to dance the Macarena the 6 of us missionaries, but Elder Castaldi got all embarrassed and weird like half an hour before the show, so we had to come up with something else. 
The only talent the 4 of us have that's worth sharing is our voices. Haha so Hermana Hansen and I thought of something reeeeaaal cool. We had them turn all the lights off and from backstage with microphones we sang ''Acompañame'' which in English is ''Abide With Me.'' It was really awesome because the Spanish lyrics are better and part says ''Todo es oscuro y temor me da'' which means everything is dark and it makes me afraid so it was cool that we were singing in the dark. I don't know man, maybe you just had to be there. Anyhow. Well then after like half an hour Inussa wanted to do something with us, so he, Juan Luís, and Adelson danced the Macarena with us. Haha it was pretty funny.

Then Sunday I gave my talk. It was pretty good I suppose. I would send it to you, but you probably wouldn't understand it :) I told a story about you Mom! Don't worry, it was a good one. The lady who was supposed to feed us completely forgot about us, so that was awkward. Aaaand that's about it. It was a hard week because of a lot of different stuff, but there's no time for negativity today.

I hope you all have a happy 4th of July! We taught our English class the national anthem and they liked it. It's just a normal day for us, but I plan on wearing red, white, and blue. AMURICUH.
