Orizaba Stake Conference!
I loved being able to go to the Stake Conference and see all of the ward members in Nogales and be able to see Miguel Angel and Misael! Miguel recieved the Melkezidek Priesthood! And they both come to church now in suits and ties. It was so great to see how much they have progressed and and they are still strong in the church! I can hardly believe that six months ago at the Stake Conference in May Misael went to church for the first time and now look at where he's at and his brother! It was honestly such an amazing moment!
And they also had us sing in the Stake Choir. One hermana here asked special permission from the Mission President for us to sing and we even got amazing choir shirts that made me feel like I was part of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir! President Cordova came and spoke as well as a Area 70 - it was such a great conference. They really focused on Christmas and that El es la Dádiva! He is the Gift! We are starting to share this message with everyone who will hear it and it's been a really cool experience to see the reactions we get from people. If you haven't seen the video - just like every other missionary you know I'm sure - Here it is! http://www.mormon.org/christmas
Thanksgiving was almost just a normal day - we had weekly planning and then went to our lunch - the Hermana Lili was so cute and tried her hardest to make us potatos and this other dish that was alllmost stuffing. It was so sweet and meant a lot to us. Even though it wasn't Thanksgiving with the famiy it was still a really special day. :) And then Hermana Johnson and I topped it off by making Mac and Cheese!
Today my time's a little short because we got to spend just about all the day in the hospital with Hermana Ramirez and Hermana Amestica! Hna Ramirez got really, really sick so we ended up going to the hospital to help them.
I hope you all have a great week! Thanks for all the love and support!
