Ok man I did send pics the last time but they didn´t load I guess. Ooo well, I will try again!

Picture 1    Picture 2    Picture 3

Hurrray Mom and Dad you guys got my package!!!!!! Happiest Birthday! Sounds like you guys are having a blast!!!!

Ooooo and guess what. This morning when I was getting ready for the pday I wore orange and black for Halloween!!! And when we got to the church I got my Halloween package!!!! So I opened it and started to let the Elders go trick or treating!!! Everyone loves you!!!! hehe. So ya, when you send packages to me, remember to put the not so good stuff on top and I will share it with the Elders, hahaha. They say thanks!!!

Mmm, yes Dad my ears are fine and I don´t even feel them there. Sorry for that other ear adventure but this one has a way funnier memory, hehe. Speaking of memories I miss Hermana Tracy sooooo much. She was like a best friend. We really helped each other get through rough times. But she had changes this last Oct 20 and I completed 9 months!!!!! WOW, I'm already half way done with my mission!!!

Ok, so my new comp is Hermana Ramirez from Utah but she is Mexican Americana! She is awesome and very obedient which is good for me! We had a crazy week of traveling again to Tocumen and Panama City!

I tried to donate blood for one of our member's Mom in the Hospital but they kind of messed up and yes it was sad for me. But the rest of the group donated their blood. What happened was that they had a hard time finding my vain and then my blood was not flowing fast so they tried to readjust it and they broke my vain. Ya, it sounds gross and it was. But I tried and that´s what counts, right? Haha.

So yes the adventure never ends here. l love you!!!!

Mom, Dad, so sorry for the little emails lately. Those last p-days were crazy! But now I am all caught up on your emails and photos. And plus it did not help have the computer that did not have all the letters on the keyboard.

But wow this last week.....Don´t kill me but I got my ears pierced! It was a crazy adventure of finding the things needed, asking for help, a China lady whipping out her old dusty ear piercing pistol, and me deciding that my compain would be the best bet to get this done clean and safe. But it was crazy experience. I know why people pierce baby ears, cause they are tinier and not so fat. But My ears are doing fine and I can not wait to wear the fun earrings here. Mom don´t worry I am being careful with what kind of metal I am using. Right now I have the baby starter gold earrings and my ears are fine.

So now that that is off my chest. Yes this week we had another Conference but this time our Zone Conference With Elder Falabella, an Area Seventy. He talked a lot but he was very very good. Then we had our Baptism this Saturday which turned out great. I love this family very much. The little boy is very smart and the girl in my arms (pictures still to come) is a funny girl. The little brother is pretty funny too. But the baby, she is sooo cute. Like Johnny, I love her cheeks, hehe.

Yep, I heard about Elder Niendorf leaving yesterday night and I am sad and jealous, hahaha. No, I know he will do great out there. I just can´t wait to go out there myself sometime. The Pres. wants to open an area out there for the Hermanas!!!! I hope and wish!!!!! But yes the changes are this week on Wednesday. We will see what happens but I think I am staying.

Love you Love you I believe we are going to visit the beach today. I hope I can get cool pics.

Lots of love

So sad is a raining day without email from home. mmmmm

But this last weekend was pretty awesome......ok wow I just saw the Mark video!!! haha. Yes the tape worm is delicious. And I can´t wait to talk to all the Mexicans!!!!! I heard from Brandon that Uncle Mark came up to visit and I did not believe it at first. I thought maybe Elder Ochs had found some one that looked like Uncle Mark cause without his goatee it was wasn´t the Uncle Mark that I know.

I must tell all you guys that I love you very very very Much! And thank you for all that you have done and are doing for me!

General Conference was the bomb!!!!! I know that the Prophet is the mouth of God and if we can feel sooo much love from him, then we are only starting to feel the love that Our Father in Heaven has for us!! I am sooo grateful for the counsel that the brethren gave to us. I know that we are getting closer to the end and need to strengthen our families and ourselves.

Cool story. We had gotten up the morning of General Conference to get an investigator and while on the way there it started to rain. Well we didn´t have umbrellas but since it was just sprinkling, we borrowed one from a member on the way to the house. As we were walking up the hill the rain and wind got stronger and finally when we got to the investigator's house the heavens opened up! The investigator has been sick this week and was like "I can not go out in this rain." We were a bit sad but we said, "OK, but if the rain stops there is another session later. Please Come!" She was said, "ya ya..." So we left to get to church in the down pour. So we get to church soaked and we walk into the air conditioned chapilla. Oooo man cold! But we entered all happy greeting everybody. As we made our way in we decided to find our seats up closer to the front. Then to our surprise there was another Menos Avtivo family all there together and dressed up in the front row. I knew that all that working in the soaking rain had to be good for something. I was sooo happy to see them! I went up and gave the husband a big pat on the back and handshake! That made my day on top of the awesome talks and all.

I love you sooooooo much and my time is short but I just got your letter!!!!! I can´t write more but I love you!!!!
