Staying in Islita

Dear everyone,

 Well the past week was slow with lessons but a lot happened. First of all, we had a baptism—my first! Valentina was baptized! She has a lot of family in the church, and it was really amazing to be a part of her conversion. Elder Brophy and I set her fecha together during a division, which is also really awesome because we’re both Greenies. At the baptism service there were a ton of people and in total 12 baptisms. Super exciting stuff. 

Other than that I found out that a Hermana in my zone is like professional singer, which makes senses because she's amazing. Her name’s Hermana Tolk (McKenzie) and she has stuff on iTunes so you should look her up. Ummm, other than that I saw a dog getting eaten by other dogs when I was on splits, which was awful. And a cat broke into our apartment, which was also awful. 

We had the reunion de cambios (transfers), and it was legit to be there with the whole mission. I get to stay in my area with Elder Brown, which is awesome. Yep everything’s good, but I still don’t talk enough and am lacking with confidence. I need to do more. I think part of the problem was before I could rely on my own abilities, but now I don’t have anything—I can’t talk. All I can do is rely on the Lord, and my faith isn't good enough yet. I’m trying to do more. Have to go.
