Service Week!

This week we did a bunch of service, plus we went up to girls camp for a half a day and we had a branch FHE and a child baptism (which in the Mexican culture is followed by a fiesta). Which means we kept pretty busy. I'll try to send a bunch of pictures for the blog. But we cleaned up a street on Saturday, and that was pretty fun! We filled up two truckloads of trash. And found some arrows and other random cool things amongst the beer cans. Plus I got to wear pants!!
We are doing so well together! I actually am surprised how much I like being in a trio. It's still a little weird, but it's fun.
Due to all the service projects and a zone meeting up in Silver City, we didn't get to see people as frequently as we would have liked, but we have so many good things going here! I'm still a little nervous about learning the area within the next two weeks, but at least Hna. Ellis is here too. We're a little stressed though!
Alright, so I'll give you the run down on my district (since Mom always has to know people's names of who I'm serving with)
Elders Williamson (he worked at Disneyland!!) & Dayley - zone leaders, also serving in the Spanish branch with us
Elders Foster & Johnson - English ward
Elders Kellog & Merritt - district leader and other English ward
Which means we're super tight with our zone leaders because we see them every day, often multiple times a day.
I live on Florida St, like half a mile or so from the church.
There's a small family history center at the church, and that's where we email :)
Let's see...so we're teaching twins! Names Sairah and J. They're super cool and are 19. They're going through a rough patch in their already tough life, but it's been incredible because every time we show up they're like, "That's exactly what we needed to hear!" or "We were just talking about that!" It's pretty cool how the Spirit works like that. 
Well...I can't really think of anything to say this week.
Love y'all!
