Week 52 and a visit from Elder Oaks

So this week was good! Awesome actually because Elder Dallin H. Oaks came to visit the mission! The whole mission met in Wichita Saturday morning and we were able to meet and shake hands with Elder Oaks and Elder Natress of the seventy. And what an amazing experience that was! Not everyday do you meet an apostle of the Lord. 
These past couple of weeks we have been learning about lots changes that are soon going to take place. First we are getting smartphones! We will be one of the 4 missions in the whole world with missionaries with smartphones so that's cool! And with that we are getting Facebook. So that's really cool. We don't know too much about it yet but what we do know is that we use our old Facebook accounts that we had back at home. So that will be weird using my Facebook that I haven't touched since I was 13.
Oh I also hit my year mark this week! And it's crazy to think it's already been a year. Time is going by way too fast!
But here are some pics!

Una semana llena de los milagros Week 51

Hey everyone! 
This week was awesome and we saw so many miracles! I'll share just a few though. So this Sunday some boys we've been teaching finally came to church. They really want to be baptized but for the past month they have been bailing on coming to church because they were scared to come to a new church with new people. But they came and they loved it!
And their older brother who is a member was out of town and they still came! But teaching them is so fun they are the funniest little boys ever. They are on date for the 26th of August so hopefully that date doesn't get pushed back anymore :)
And another miracle was that Friday night we got a referral for a Henry man from some English missionaries. We came by Saturday night to see him and he is super elect! He recently moved here from El Salvador. We taught him la restauraciĆ³n and he loved it. He told us how he wants to change his life and was looking for someone to help him along his way. He came to church Sunday stayed all three hours and loved it! He wants to come to church again next Sunday. Oh he also wants to get baptized but he hasn't accepted a date yet but he will totally get baptized in the near future!
The sisters found an elect family of 9 this week. The mom is a less active member and 6 of the 7 kids are baptismal age. The whole family came to church so Sunday there was a just a ton of people at church and it was so awesome! The Lord has been blessing us tremendously and it is awesome! So this has been a great week!
