|us and the oña family before their baptism at last week's "white night"|
All the converts and missionaries from last week's "white night"
wheewwww i dont even know where to start. we had meetings pretty much all day every day (mission council, verifications, district meeting, etc) so we didnt really get too much work done.

thenand was general conference. this was the first time ive ever actually watched all 4 sessions. AND I TOOK NOTES. i know its a miracle. its crazy how exciting general conference was. it seemed like every talk had some profound message that i needed to write down and save for the future. the one black guy (i dont remember when he talked) was funny because all throughout the elders kept quoting the lion king. he sounded like rafiki. the put all the white missinoaries in our own room so we could watch in english there were only 6 of us,but it was pretty fun.
|my area of missionaries after general conference|
thennight after conference we hung out with a recent member and made tortillas from verde (green plantain) they were okay, but i wasnt a huge fan. this member though is SWEET. shes hillarious and i think we are twins.
they have a pretty small house but she feeds the missionaries once a week. she has a few kids and they are freaking adorable (pictures attached.)
Earlier in the week we also visited with a less active sister who recently gave birth to the tiniest premature baby girl. she only weighed two pounds when she was born.

seriously all of the members here are so loving and would give anything for us. my new comp is named hermana lopez and shes from colombia. shes a little taller than hermana garcia but still shorter than me. Weve only been togther a few hours, but we already went and got chifa (Chinese food) and she seems pretty chill. i hope we will get along a little bit better.

cake at the last zone conference
lots of pictures attached. (like 40+) (since i missed the last few weeks)
from your eternally sleepy and strenthening spiritual,
Kaylee - not sure which picture of the 40+ she had in mind for you, but here are my top guesses.
Happy Birthday!- Linda
