Week 69 (Part 2)

Hello Everyone! 

It is really weird to think that I will be seeing you all in just over 2 weeks. I warn you now that I will probably be a little weird haha. 

Things have been going great here in the MBM with record breaking number of baptismal dates and some really good weather.

 Boston knows how to do patriotic holidays. There was so much going on yesterday. In the morning we went to a battle reenactment of the first shots fired in the revolutionary war. That was pretty cool even though the British completely destroyed us in that battle. A member lives close to where it was so they invited us over for breakfast afterwards. Afterward we went to the marathon. It was significantly better that it was last year, but I do have to say that it was less exciting. There was also a redsox game yesterday but we didn't go to it. We just took some pictures outside of the stadium. It was fun walking around downtown with so many people because we were stopped 10 different times throughout the day so that members from around the country could say hi. We would just be walking and we would hear "look missionaries!" one of them gave me a hug and said it was so good it see us. I love how the church unites so many people, it doesn't matter where you are from. I felt a little famous haha. 

This last week we had the opportunity to go to a temple session in spanish! It was really cool, I'm glad that I was able to understand all of it too. It gives you a different perspctive when you hear it in other languages. I'm excited to go to the temple more when I get home. We will have to have a temple night! I really want to go to the Salt Lake Temple. 
Easter was amazing. We actually had stake conference that day too. There were a lot of wonderful talks about the atonement. I love learning more about the atonement and how it can take us from good to better. We don't have to do bad things for the atonement to apply to us, it's what gives us the power to better ourselves every day. 

Well I really have to get going but I love you all! Have a great week! 

Con Amor,
