Can you believe that I have been here for 6 weeks?!? I leave for the real deal, the real mission, real Spain, outside, next TUESDAY. EKKKK...!!! There is so much I want to write and express today, but thank you to anyone and everyone who has sent prayers my way, I have so felt them. Last Thursday I had a really cool experience in the temple and in the celestial room. Of course I cried the whole time, but the spirit was SO strong and like you’ve been saying, the veil has been so thin.

I love the temple and I am so grateful that I got to be there last Thursday during the time of the funeral. Thank you for all of your love and support!
some highlights from this week—

-I did the first vision elevator challenge!!!! (we go to the 6th floor, as soon as the door shuts, you have the time it takes to get to the very bottom to say the first vision in Spanish.... and let’s just say you have to talk pretty fast to get it done. I did it! haha seems little, but big accomplishment here)

-I GOT TO PLAY A VIOLIN IN SACRAMENT!!!! I’m glad you got to see the video! We played it in sacrament and after a lot of people asked us to play again so we did and some people recorded it. Glad it got to you!

-This week Hermana Campbell and I were park companions!! It was really rainy though so we stayed in the metro for about 2 hours and contacted. It was really hard and rough, but I’m so grateful for that experience we got to have together, to learn and to both grow from that.

-NEW MISSIONARIES. there are now a total of 51 one us here at the Spain ccm. (which is SO nuts) huge shout out and thank you to Hermana Barton for bringing my new gold shoes, candy, and goldfish. Much appreciated and thank you mom and dad for doing that.

-Thank you Taylor and Sara for the dearelder letters and for the giant box of candy!! I was definitely spoiled this week by family--I’m so blessed. Thank you!!

-Since there are new missionaries, our habitacion just grew back to 4. haha it makes me laugh and thank god because it is incredible. Sister Kapralova is from Russia, she knows very very little English and Hermana Silva is from Brazil, and only knows Portuguese, but we communicate through Spanish. then Hermana Campbell and I, English and some Spanish. ha I laugh because somehow we all communicate, laugh, talk, and it is amazing. So, if you are wondering, I am currently learning Russian as well while I am here. :)

This week was a cool week. I realized how much the Lord really does speak to me... it’s a lot! Alma 5:40 reminds us that all good comes from GOD. So, a quicky message from me here.... ALL GOOD THINGS COME FROM GOD AND JUST ACT ON THOSE FEELINGS AND PROMPTINGS THAT YOU HAVE.

I know I talk about her a lot, but Hermana Caballero... She became my sister here and I am So grateful for her. Sunday was a really special day with her because she left on Monday, her contract was up, and she has already been here since like December. We spent some time with her on temple grounds and it was really special. I am grateful for her example to me in the gospel, her love of our Savior, and her love and confidence in me. It was a really hard goodbye, many tears, and my little body was exhausted, but all is well. I’m so grateful for her in my life and her example.

Well, I don’t know what else to say... but I love you all so so much and I love being a missionary. We interview with our mission president Sunday night, Monday we have in field training all day, and Tuesday we´re out of here. WHAT!! honestly still can’t believe it.

This week we have taught a lot about families and the importance of them in the gospel. I am so grateful for you, family and the love and support that is given to me.

My brain is going in circles, I hope this all makes sense.
My final thought, God is so good, God is real, and He knows us.  He knows what we’re going through and He wants to help. He knows all, TURN TO HIM!!
