At 6:30 AM this morning I went to the stake center to report to the high council about my mission. Two other missionaries were also reporting and it was neat to hear about their experiences as well (in Taiwan and Colorado). I love the mission so much! You know, its true I never really understood before when RM's would get so excited to talk about their mission and just all happy and everything BUT NOW I GET IT....yep I have the returned missionary "i love talking about my mission" syndrome. I want to keep the feeling with me forever of how I felt serving the Lord full time. I recommend it for everyone! There is definitely nothing else like it.
I also got to speak in sacrament meeting in my ward (also about the mission) and to bear my testimony in spanish (I also did that in the high council meeting) and that was great! I also got a calling in my ward today as Young Women's secretary! I am really excited! The leaders are really enthusiastic and I have good experiences of young women's myself and want to be able to help the girls to have great experiences and memories of young womens.

Hey, I'm making a new blog for a a couple reasons...

-I can't get into my old one at all (I've tried just about everything)
-People still want me to make a blog!

(blogging is not my strongest quality but with some reminders I should be able to update it every now and then).

Today is Saturday. I'm speaking in sacrament meeting tomorrow to talk about my mission! I have been thinking and writing about the different experiences I want to share and it has made me so happy to do that!
Then in the mail today I got a letter from my last companion, Hna Hernandez, and she sent me 3 pictures, including one of Jose, who is a recent convert, of him at the temple open house, as well as one of Luis at his baptism! He was baptized on July 5th!
This is me and Hna Hernandez when I went to see her a couple weeks ago at the Oquirr Mountain Temple open house. I was so excited to see her and the other sisters there!
