Hey everyone! I hope you had an awesome week! This week has been crazy again... it never isn't crazy! So, this week is possibly my last week in YSA :( because we have transfers coming up! It is amazing how fast the time flies by! We have so much work now in YSA and when you are busy the time goes even faster!
I have some awesome news about our investigator, Christian! He is the cousin of one of our members. We had him come to a baptism this last week and he LOVED it!!! He has been wanting to get baptized so bad and has had so many positive experiences.
Christian’s Aunt and Uncle took him to the temple grounds last week. He said he had never felt that good in his life and he knew that is was all true. We were talking with President Henrie about how badly he wants to get baptized and we asked him what he thought about our situation. We knew that he needs to go to church 3 times before getting baptized and so we came to a conclusion. Why not just baptize him after he goes to church for his 3rd time... SOOOO CHRISTIAN IS GETTING BAPTIZED THIS SUNDAY!!!! We are so excited for him! It has been a great blessing to be able to witness Christian preparing for baptism!
This week we made a quick stop at Yogurtland. On our cup and spoon it had the word "HOPE" written everywhere. I started thinking about what hope means. Then I thought of a quote by President Monson. "Hope is putting Faith to work when doubting would be easier." That has really hit home for me, we need to have hope in everything we do and we need to have hope in other people as well. :)
I hope that you all are doing great and having HOPE! Life here is great and love you all!

These pictures came from Hermana Vasquez <3 during Adventure Monday!
This time Hermana Hadley and Starke introduced the Vasquez family to a restaurant called "Salsa and Beer". The Branch President and his wife were glad the Hermanas did not take them to a bar! :)
