Maxii Baptism

Diana - Emal - November 11, 13

Hello family and friends!!!
Another week has gone by how crazy and can you believe i have been out here for 4 months i only have 14 months left :( crazy!!! Anthony and Ty I am so excited for the two of you!!! Congrats Whitney!!! you will never regret going on a mission.
Well its starting to get really cold and wet and my umbrella is such a hassle so i had to buy a rain coat at walmart i feel like a red marshmallow but it has a hood and hopefully it is water proof. Everyone makes fun of me because I am so cold all the time and the one thing they keep telling me is " Oh sweetheart just wait the cold is still coming" WHAT!!! its going to get colder? man my Arizona blood is just not liking this cold weather.
So we had some really sad news today so i told you all that i was in the mission choir well President Choi and the other Leaders said it was time to end it. :( I was really sad but I guess the Lord has bigger and better plans for the Washington Seattle Mission.  The work has just been awesome. we talked to a lot of people and I gave out 4 or 5 copies of the Book of Mormon and I was  just totally stoked!!
We have an activity coming up and it sounds so amazing i really want to stay in this area for at least one more transfer so i can be here. It is a festival of nativity and I will send you a video explaining what it is but its amazing!!!
Well everyone I love you so much and I know the Lord loves you!  Anyway I hope you have a great week and remember you dont need a badge to be a missionary.

I had an great birthday present when Maxii got baptized yesterday. and now he is right here sitting next to me:P
So we have another member of the family esquivel that wants to be baptized! that was good news!! he wants to get baptized the week after his parents:)
He turns 8 on the 24 of this months which is why he has to wait so long but hes been listening to the lessons and apparently pays more attention than i thought:P  This kid is just talking about baptism now!!!:) it makes me happy that he was listening to the right things!!

but man sometimes i dont feel like a missionary! i feel like im a sphychiatris?? one of those people that talk to people to help with there problems??:P haha i cant spell long words anymore:P
we intend to say how the gospel can help with their problems, but sometimes some interesting things come up and its hard to steer things back in that direction:P  Either we get it going in the right direction just in time or we "run out of time" and have to go. and usually when that happens we have some time to recuperate and gather our thoughts and pray:) so thats always nice to do!

ohh and i get to see jeffery r holland Saturday!!
haha im just excited because i understand English and can get more out of it:P some of the things are lost when they are translated but not for me:)

the language is really good i understand just about everything that i hear i just have to figure out how to make the same things come out of my mouth but its fantastic!

tell everyone i love them! and to keep smiling:)
