Nov. 14- When 2 becomes 3 (part 1)

Dear Family,
It was another amazing week! We are having a lot of fun here in Alpuyeca and everything is just always running and the time flies! 
We said goodbye to a few of the missionaries in our zone that left this week. It is tradition in the mission the cut a tie of the missionaries who are leaving so we did it this week after the zone capacitation:) This is Elder Price, hes been our district leader this WHOLE TIME in Alpuyeca, actually, when I left this zone when I got out of my training he was my district leader. I came back a year later and he was STILL the district leader, haha.
This is Hermana Vidal:) She was a sister training leader and is from Peru:) 
​I dont really know Elder Tuz, but I cut his tie all the same. 
We did divisiones with some of the cutest sisters ever this week:) Hermana Villalobos and Hermana Aguilar:) They are both pretty young in the mission but they are together now and learning juntas!
Did you know indian corn is still a thing?:) But really though, this corn makes really delicious blue-looking tortillas. 
We have been having some health problems lately and it was partly due to the fact that we hadnt eaten many vegetables (we eat whatever the members give us). So, we tried to talk to the relief society about giving us more vegetables to eat and they thought we said that we ONLY wanted to eat vegetables so for 2 days I suffered through that but finally we were overjoyed when Ana knew we didnt want JUST vegetables and fed us delicious enchiladas:) 
Side Note: Enchiladas and Cesina is like my favorite combination ever. 
I took an artistic picture of a butterfly while Hermana Dent was talking on the phone to someone for a while, haha:) 

When 2 becomes 3 (part 2)

One of our very special investigators, Miguel, was baptized this week:) He is one of the most humble persons I have ever met. He sells nopales (cactus) for a living (they eat that here:) and he just has a sincere desire to follow God. 
What made the baptism even MORE special is that our recent convert, Ricardo, was the priesthood holder who baptized Miguel! It was all very awesome.
Miguel was a reference from a recent convert family, Familia CastaƱeda, it is so easy to just open your mouth and share your testimony:) They bought cactus from him one day and invited him to church. Boom.
So, today starts the new transfer! Neither I or Hermana Dent are leaving our are but we are going to be in a trio now with Hermana Oyarzabal:) She is going to be called as the next sister training leader in a few weeks:) She also happens to be my 'nieta' (granddaughter) because She is the trainee of my trainee. This is a pic of the 4 of us in our family tree:) Me, my trainee Hermana Rodriguez, her trainee Hermana Oyarzabal, and her trainee Hermana Granados. It is very fun:) 
We are excited to be here together and teach Hermana Oyarzabal all about the area and being a STL :)
