"God will make America great again." - A church sign


This was an awesome week for us because we got to go to the temple! This week we also had a big service project and a Spanish fireside. This upcoming week will be awesome too because we have Zone Conference and we have the service project again. And it is Hermana Kiser's birthday tomorrow!

The week started out with the service project. The Houston Health Department and Project Saving Smiles teamed up to provide dental care to at risk second graders. Hermana Kiser and I got to teach the kids about dental sealants and how to take care of their teeth before they saw the dentist. I was surprised by the number of kids who had just moved here and did not speak English yet. (Thankfully we speak Spanish! 😉) We are going back this week too!

Natividad and Carol are doing great and came to church this week! Natividad's kids loved primary. We also started teaching a nine year old named Ivan. His grandma is a member. He came to church on Sunday and loved primary! He is excited to get baptized.

We had a Spanish fireside which is the coolest thing ever! All of the Spanish missionaries in the mission get together (so I got to see all of my friends!) along with our investigators, recent converts, and whoever wants to come! Recent converts bear their testimonies and talk about their conversion and the missionaries all sing. It was so powerful! President Mortensen also spoke (he served a mission in Puerto Rico and he still speaks really well!) He talked about finding peace. I know that the peace we seek comes from having a relationship with our Heavenly Father. We are children of God and He loves us. He truly hears and answers our prayers.

Que tengan una buena semana!
