Fruit Ninja Exercise Program

Like Mother ...Like Daughter!

McKenna got to see Alice from her first area


Whelp... this week was pretty normal!! Not too much to talk about... just working really hard!! Been having some fun too of course... we dressed up like ninjas and played "fruit ninja" the other day for morning exercise. I did get to go out to my old area again for exchanges which was a blast! Got to see Alice and a couple members!! This week we are going up to Albuquerque again for some leadership meetings which is always a BLAST. We have been looking forward to it all month.
Killing off another companion has been great! Also kind of sad... and lots of talk about home. But i'm learning so much from it. I really do love Hermana Cederquist and its going to be sad to see her go. She is an incredible missionary.
So Carmen is getting baptized on Saturday!!! Probably one of the biggest miracles of my whole mission. Last night we had a really scary lesson though. I've decided Im going to name all my future grey hairs "Carmen Urquiza." We got there and she told us she didn't want to be baptized and wanted to wait. Of course we were horribly disappointed. We decided to drop our lesson plan and teach according to her needs and by the end of the lesson she had changed her mind back around! She is getting baptized at 11:00 on Saturday :) It was like the world was going to end and then all of a sudden you get a free ticket to Disneyland kind of situation. She is the most stubborn, hard headed woman i've ever met. She has definitely done a number on multiple missionaries haha. and she is FINALLY getting to the waters of baptism!! We are so beyond excited.
Time is flying! Cant believe its September already!! SO glad that everyone is doing well. I love you all so much. Remember "If in the end you haven't chosen Christ, it wont matter what you have chosen." That quote is in the back of my scriptures. I love it! Almost as much as I love you :) Sorry its so short this week! Don't know what to say other than missionary work is the best!
