Campeche and 16 month mark

this week hermana smith and i and the other four sister training leaders road tripped to campeche! campeche is SO beautiful. we were there for two days and hermana smith and i happened to be in the area closest to the sea! I LOVE THE SEA. we could see it from the window of hermana argueta's house and we passed by it a few times while we were working and exercising in the morning. oh and when we ate lunch with one of the members we ate fresh fish while looking out at the ocean! i didn't want to leave. also campeche is FULL of giant hills. we walked up and down so many hills and our legs were so sore after the first day there. it was a really fun adventure and i checked off one of my mission goals because i've always wanted to go and see the sea in campeche. i also got to work with hermana argueta all day and help her which was really awesome because her and her companion are having a lot of problems together and in their area.

surprise! emmanuel and manuel received the melchizedek priesthood last night! there were 8 recent converts in the brisas stake that had been preparing to receive the priesthood, and four of them were from chichenitza! when emmanuel and manuel told us that they were going to receive the melchizedek priesthood yesterday when we were driving home from church hermana smith and i almost died. i am so happy for them and i am so happy for the opportunity that they now have to bless their families. i also love seeing them grow! emmanuel came with us this morning to our district meeting and he's getting more and more excited to serve a mission. 

also happy late valentines day! hermana smith and i celebrated by making little valentines for our recent converts and all of the sisters in our zone and the other sister training leaders. we also tried to make heart shaped pancakes in the morning but that didn't really work out hahaha. 

also today is my 16th month mark, it's so hard to believe! i love it here. everyday i feel closer to the lord and i feel my testimony of the gospel of jesus christ grow. i love sharing it with others.
