A visit to Campeche- seeing the ocean!!

February 16, 2015

Wow your ski trip looks so fun!! I miss the snow. And skiing. HW skis and she and I want to go skiing in Deer Valley together when we get back. It's so cool that we're together to finish our mission and we started it together, I don't know anyone else who that has happened to!

 Beautiful Campeche!! The girls live on top of a hill. and by hill I mean like mountain.... like think San Francisco... like where Judy and Ron live. Actually I don't know if they still live there... but at one point they did.. Campeche is notorious for their hills. Poor missionaries who work there always have sore legs. Including my companion who had to climb some gnarly hills and was dying the next day..

 We were really scared going up that hill. You feel like you're going to fall backwards!

Ok well this week was AWESOME and terrible at the same time. Terrible 'cause we had very low numbers because we went to Campeche for like 3 days (oh I need to tell you about that trip 'cause it was crazy!) and awesome because our recent converts, Emmanuel and Manuel, yeah, you know them right? The ones who got baptized like 2 and 3 months ago? Yeah yesterday they received the MELCHIZEDEK PRIESTHOOD!! They had a special conference with all the Melchizedek priesthood holders 'cause there were like 8 in the stake who could receive it! Isn't that crazy!?? M didn't get it cause he is presently having issues... BUT we're pretty happy. 

El mar:) SOOO this is what the ocean looks like in Mexico! we got to go to Campeche and I saw the ocean for the first time in my whole mission! It was so pretty and we ran along the boardwalk and it was so fun! 
HW and I going off to sea. We decided to become pirates. 

Also, Fatima is doing great. She's already baptized herself. The other day she was talking to us and she said "when I WAS catholic..." and we're like "Hermana, When did you get baptized??" Haha she's awesome. 

 Also, I ate this fish. HW loves fish and she always tells the members that she wants fish for lunch so they make it for us and I am about ready to never eat it again! This was a whole fish fried all together. with the eyes and the teeth and everything. So that was fun

Yeah I finished it.
Valentine's day pancakes! 

OK I'm going to have to copy HW's letter on here cause they're kicking me off the computer now, sorry! I'll try to do better on time next week! Love you all bye!!
