Hello family ! Sorry I am writing so early today, it's gonna be a crazy busy day. We got up extra early so we could get our studies done earlier so we could have more time to get all that we have to do, done. This week was a crazy week and I am excited to tell y'all about it :) First off, I am very happy to hear that everything went great with mom and her surgery! That makes me very happy :) I am grateful for the power of the priesthood and fasting and prayer. I hope my cute mom keeps feeling better! I know you are being taken care of by a great husband and Ward and family and friends :) So as for this week it was nuts. But to hit all the good news first. Lupe got baptized on Saturday !!!! Yahoooooooooo ! It was awesome :) let me just tell you, opposition in all things is a real thing. For the investigator and the missionaries haha. Lupe was hit pretty hard with some opposition the DAY BEFORE HIS BAPTISM. I don't think I have ever prayed or fasted so much in my whole life as I did this last week. We had our last lesson with him on Friday and when he got there he was just acting so strange. Anyway after talking for a while we finally got him to open up about what was happening. He said he had talked to his mom about his baptism and how she was just so sad because she felt like she failed at raising her son. He said he just feels like his parents are so disappointed in him. But he said he knew this was what he needed to do, and it's the right thing. What a champ !!! I know that the lord is so pleased with the faith Lupe has! I know he has great things and blessings in store for him Although it was stressful up unto the point of the baptism, everything worked out great :) I am so excited for him. And yesterday he was confirmed and received the Holy Ghost, and that was awesome. The spirit was so strong, and he even surprised everyone by making a grand entrance by coming to a church in a suit ! We told him to be a little early , because he always is making it a little late to church, anyway so it's like 12:58 and we are freaking out because he isn't there yet. So we are not trying to panic or anything and then he just like walks in, in this like nice suit, everyone was like "woah" haha he has never even wore a white shirt or slacks to church before, so that was cool. Anyway, it was good and I honestly can see a different light in him ! That was the best part of this whole week Now onto the transfer information.... For my last transfer of my mission I will be staying here in Buena Vista !!!!!!!!!!! And I am training a new missionary ! What. I was so shocked. But I am so excited ! We had interviews on Wednesday with president and the first thing he said was that he wanted to talk to me about transfers. He asked me to train a new missionary and then he told me I would be staying in Buena vista !!! I started screaming I was so happy I thought I was going to cry ! That was awesome. I am kind of freaked out to train a new missionary, because I never have, but it will fun I think :) and it will be an awesome way to end my last transfer ! God is good It's pretty crazy that Hna Dansie is leaving, tomorrow! It's been awesome serving with her and we have been able to see so many miracles and have some awesome experiences together. She is awesome. I will tell her to come visit y'all and everything so y'all can go to her homecoming too. It will be strange having a new comp after being with the same one for the last 6 months, but I am excited for this next transfer! I am grateful for this opportunity I have to be a full time missionary ! There is nothing better to compare it to. I am excited to see how these next 6 weeks go and I am excited to work as hard as I can to finish strong and to fight the good fight. I love y'all and I hope y'all have a grrrrrrrrrreeeeeeeat week ! I am grateful for your prayers and I can feel them, especially on those extra hard days. Be safe and I hope y'all don't freeze ! ️ Love you sooooo much ! XO Hna Brown
