Well we had a pretty good week! As you can see from the title, this next week is Hermana Galicia’s last week in the mission! Next week we will have transfers! I feel like this transfer has just gone by soooo fast. By the way, next week they are changing our p-day to Tuesday so I will be writing Tuesday!
Exciting news: 3 more of my old investigators in Xonacatepec got baptized this weekend, the 2 girls from the Fernandez Family and Victor!! So exciting!
This week we had a "Christmas training conference" showing us what we will be doing for the Christmas campaign this year. It’s basically the same as last year with the "Light the World" theme – looking for ways to serve every day of Decemeber. We are excited!

So we saw some cool miracles this week! We have a couple that we have been teaching. Their names are Vicente and Dolores. They are friends of a bishop in another ward, and he invited them to a family home evening with him and his family. Since they live in our area, they passed us the referral. They are awesome! We have taught them various lessons, and they are really receptive. As always, after teaching the restoration, we committed them to pray to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and if this was the church of Jesus Christ. In the next lesson, Dolores told us that she had a brother who had been really sick. He did some medical exams and they were waiting on the results. She told us that when she said her prayer, she asked for God to give her a sign that the church was true, that sign being that her brother’s tests results would come back fine. She waited, and the test results came back normal! Her brother didn’t have anything wrong. What a miracle (and an answer!)! She was really surprised, and said that God had answered her. They came to church this Sunday and liked it a lot. The only problem is… they’re not married ahhhhhh but we hope they will be soon hahaha!

With Luis Angel, if it’s not one thing, it’s another. He was no longer grounded from going to church, but last weekend something weird happened. Patricia’s brother (17 years old) came over to her house, and him and Luis took some of his mom’s money to go by snacks without asking her. Well of course she got mad, and the whole thing blew up. Turns out that Luis Angel left home to go live with his uncle and grandma. It was all really weird and doesn’t make a lot of sense. But yeah we haven’t seen him. Patricia was really sad and worried, because he refused to come back home. But we were able to read the story of Alma the younger when the angel appeared to him with her. The story says that the Angel appeared to him because of the faithfulness of his father and his father’s prayers. Patricia really does have a TON of faith, and we know that if she keeps praying with faith, everything will work out.
Well, that’s about all I have to say. I hope y’all have a good week!
