Conference, Carolina, and Katy Perry

March 23, 2015

Hola mi queridos,

Another week has come and gone and I can hardly believe it. A lot of crazy things happened this week. Thus the title. I, for real, don't have a lot of time this week. Not just an excuse to have a crappy email, but for reals. So here we go...

Ah, back with Hermana Dance for a few days!
We had zone conference on Friday and that was a blast. We were spiritually fed and we also got to have some Easter fun decorating our egg and having a scripture easter egg hunt! It was also great because my old comp Hermana Dance was there. She had actually been with us since Wednesday afternoon, but due to some passport issues couldn't cross that Wednesday to Posadas and was with us. It was awesome. We got to teach together again and catch up! Man have I missed that girl. She is seriously like another sister to me!! LOVE YOU MADI AND worries! 

The lesson we taught together was to Carolina (alli esta) to see if she was really ready to be baptized this upcoming Saturday of this week. Long story short at noche de rama <Branch night> her and her boyfriend had been telling everybody that they would be getting married and baptized this upcoming Saturday. So obviously all the members were asking we went to check. I did not have a lot of faith in this, but when we talked with her and asked the questions I was completely thrown and humbled. She may not know everything but she wants it and knows it is the right thing to do. She will be having her interview tonight, so we will see what happens!! 

So the other big thing that happened was that I gave my first talk on my mission in church in Spanish....YIKES! I was so nervous!! But I think it went alright...who knows. My comp said she could understand me, but she always says that even if she can't because she loves me!! LOVE HER! 

You are probably all wondering where Katy Perry fits into this...well when I arrived at church Hermano Delgado when he saw me asked if he could get a picture with Katy Perry all day. Pretty funny! 

This week was great. I learned a lot and am still learning. Our talks were about the obra misional <missionary work>. Surprise!! I loved studying for it though. Truly to share this gospel is a commandment of God, not just for full time missionaries but for everyone, and yes, that means you random citizen reading this! :) Let us be like Nephi and say, "Ire y hare lo que el Senor ha mandado porque se que el nunca da mandamientos a los hijos de los hombres sin preparles la via para que cumplan lo que les ha mandado." (1 Ne 3:15) Sorry don't remember it all in English! He truly will provide a way! Pray to know your part, and if in doubt, live your life as an example and pray to recognize your opportunity!! 

Love you,

Hermana Albach
