Livin la vida loca... well not so loca... Livin la vida de orden

Hey familia! My mission is pretty cool.  I am kind of loving it.  Although there are a few people that have been reminding me that my time has now grown short, I have decided that I have to take advantage of the time that I have here in little ol' Mexico. I am so happy to be a missionary of this church because it is so awesome.  The more I learn about other churches, the more I realize that this church is true. 

Awesome thing #1: This week two of my conversos received the priesthood! Remember the ones that got baptized a couple of weeks ago, Hector and Enrique?  AAGH! I almost cried when I sustained them! It was the coolest thing ever.  They are also planning their trip to the temple this month so it is going to be incredible!! I am so happy for them!  Hector is preparing to go on a mission himself in this next year.  

Awesome thing #2: Remember David who also got baptized a few weeks ago?  Well his mom got baptized yesterday!! EEEEE!! It was the best!  Little David was being a missionary by teaching his mom all the cool things that he had learned about the church! She progressed amazingly well.  She accepted everything without questioning it!  I really admire her faith.  It was really an amazing day, everything turned out beautifully.  I think the price we had to pay for having a day so beautiful was that the entire week was freezing!  Wet and rainy and cold.  Agh.  It was miserable but valia la pena.  

Sometimes I feel really blessed to see and be apart of these kinds of miracles and sometimes it makes me feel that I am not quite worthy of all these amazing things but I am sure loving it and I am grateful with mi padre celestial everyday for these amazing opportunities!! I love you all and I hope you all know that the church is true.

Woop!  We have made it to 2015!! I am so happy! This is marvelous!  We have a new year to become better people. New Years day was pretty uneventful.  We talked to a lot of drunk people that all told us that they wanted to change... cool.  Lots of new and interesting investigators. We did start teaching this guy who used to be one of the Papantla Voladores and he has been EVERYWHERE! For real he has been and lived on almost every continent! Its super cool. 

Here is a picture of my dog. I named it Elder. It is mormon because it always follows us.  Look how sad he is because we took him back to his house.  He always greets us by barking and jumping! It is great.  

Anyway, the church is true.  Joseph Smith is a profeta! I love you all very much and I am happy that we are an eternal family! 

I love you all and I hope you enjoy the beginning of 2015!  Be good!

Long time, no see.

How amazing it was to speak with all of you! And to meet my little sobrinita.  It was awesome.  I can sure tell you that Christmas is amazing!  That it is a time for miracles!  God is always willing to bless us with miracles.  I know he has a whole lot of miracles planned for us.  We just have to be able to reecognize them! I love you all a whole lot!  I feel like I have already told you everything!  But I want you to know that I am happy and healthy and I hope you are all feeling the same way!  Well.  Happy 2015!! Be happy be Mormon!! 

Con mucho amor,
Hermana Chandler
