Birthday Box

After waiting for almost an entire month after my birthday box arrived, finally today I get to open it. I won't actually be 23 until tomorrow; but since today Hermana Garcia is turning 22 and since it's P-day, today is the day we are mainly celebrating. I have to confess that I had Hermana Garcia peek inside earlier in the month and take out the nylons I needed and was hoping were inside and also the straightener since these were both things I had asked for. But other than that, I have been the picture of discipline!
New shoes, a hair straightener, pictures and birthday notes from my own family and extended family, candy and brownie mix--it was worth the wait!

Multizone Conference

(9/23/09) I love gathering with the other missionaries from around our mission. Hermana Garcia looks especially happy :o)
It's particularly nice to be around the other hermanas in the mission since Hermana Garcia and I are definitely outnumbered within our own district and zone.

Day of Cambios

(9/14/09) Whenever transfers (cambios) roll around, I feel a little nervous or anxious, but hopefully I don't let my emotions show too much....
Drumroll please...I am still in Sensunpan and with Hermana Garcia! Last week we also had another sister in our companionship for 3 days. Hermana Tax's companion was transferred to Belize, so she joined us until her new companion arrived. Hermana Garcia ended up being sick during the three days, so Hermana Tax and I were still able to go out and work while Hermana Garcia stayed with a sister in the ward. Hermana Garcia is the one in the middle.

Noche de Talentos

(9/11/09) We had a big talent night this last week, both in the ward and in the stake.
Our Primary did a dance to "Thriller."
They ended up taking second place in the stake. They loved presenting the trophy to Bishop Sanchez. It was an awesome night.

The Sonsonate Sign

(9/7/09) Sonsonate if the name of the entire zone (or country) where I am currently serving. Sensunapan is the name of the city I am in within the zone.

This is a picture of our zone. My mom (who is writing this) is assuming my companion is taking the picture--a boy/girl ratio of 22 to 2 is definitely better than 22 to 1 in the mission field.
Our district is called "District America." What an awesome group!
Hermana Garcia and I are definitely the best looking members of our zone.
