Finally Pday!

So much has happened since last Monday! I won't even be able to update
you on everything, haha! First of all, sister Casagranda was emergency
transferred 😥 the AP's called Monday night at 8:45pm and told her she
needed to be at the mission office at 8:45am... We were having too
much fun together as you can see 😳 I'm kidding, that's not why, I
think someone went home so she went to go be a companion, but we were
having a lot of fun! It was amazing to see the Lord's hand perfectly
in her time here. She was able to meet people she had Alaska
connections With that I haven't met in the almost 7 months I've been
here! His plan is perfect and this is definitely His work!

I went to my first MLC (missionary leadership council) last week and
got to see so many sisters I love! It was a really good meeting, and I
felt blessed to be able to be a part of it, although I was not very
prepared for what we were going to do, next time I hope to be more

We ran a 5 mile race from the Oquirrh Mountain Temple to the Jordan
River Temple on Labor Day! We are all so sore! It was a ton of fun
seeing so many missionary friends there as well! We were the first
sisters to finish 😊 we finished in 50 minutes, not too shabby, I was
super proud of sister Alvarado! Also, president Lansing walked, and
when we saw him coming to the finish line we all went to run with him,
so he started running, and he fell 😱😱😱 I was so scared, but he just
rolled and got right back up and kept running! What a champ! 🎉🏃🏽

So Jose is finally going to get baptized this time I think! He wants
to be baptized September 17th, we are so excited for him!!  He is
actually reading his scriptures and coming to church and praying, and
when we asked why he wanted to be baptized he said so that he could be
forgiven and have a clean slate! So a,axing and so true! Because of
Christ's sacrifice for us, we can all be washed clean by following his
example. No one is perfect, but God loves us so much regardless! I
love my savior Jesus Christ so much and I am so thankful for His love
for me! I know that it is only through His grace and mercy that we are
saved! 🙏🏽🙌❤️

We are getting ready to go to the temple at 3pm so we don't have as
much time to email today, but Monday will be here soon!

I love and miss you all!
