|Just had to actually see the Great Salt Lake!|
Well the highlight of this week definitely was seeing MOM and MAKAYLA! It was so good to see them on Friday, I showed them around and then we went to cheesecake factory for dinner.... yummmm. Everyone was so excited to meet the family,
and thought makayla was my older sister.... whatttt no hahaha. It was surreal to them, it felt like almost a dream.... I woke up the next day and went back to normal mission like like it never happened hahaha. But I am so glad it was real! I am so blessed to have such an awesome family!

For their formal
This past week we had Zone Conference on Wednesday! It was focused on the Sermon on the Mount, we studied it during the week for preparation and I learned so much! And was able to use it to teach people that week which was awesome! Sister Eging, a few other sisters, and I sung the musical number at zone conference, "Stand in holy places" A sister put it together and it was beautiful.
Music & The Spoken Word
This week our people went to church!!!!! YAYYYY! finally we got them to go! Carlos has been to church twice.... we just need the local missionaries to get on it ASAP because he is so ready to be baptized and we can only do so much from out here.It is hard when we can't communicate with the local missionaries, but we are just praying and doing our part. He even found a job opportunity out here in SLC and might make the move out here with his family! Marie and Shaun also went to church and Enjoyed it! Shaun is down in San Diego and is suppose to go to the Mormon Batallion with the missionaries, he is so prepared.... hopefully he runs into sister Vasi down there! We have had a successful week with finding and teaching solid lessons to solid people. We met our goal this past week with finding 6 new awesome people to teach, the Lord provides as long as we are diligent and obedient!

Sister Eging called this past week the Manna from Heaven week, we seriously were running low on food and money but free food and meals provided always popped up randomly! I was telling her the Lord can't let his faithful servants starve! hahaha
This week I learned an important life lesson. That public water features are nasty.... as we were walking to the Beehive a homeless guy with some sweet dredds was washing up in the fountain. ewwww. Little kids put there hands in there! hahaha I couldn't stop laughing after we walked away, then called security. Do not touch public water fountains, the coins aren't worth it.

Just a reminder to everyone to SMILE(: 2 Nephi 9:39
"O, my beloved brethren, remember the awfulness in transgressing against that Holy God, and also the awfulness of yielding to the enticings of that cunning one. Remember, to be carnally-minded is death, and to be Spiritually-Minded Is Life Eternal."
Have a amazing week!
