Events of the week. (drum roll please)
Ok. Bike story. Tuesday night she had a lesson at the church with an investigator. They put their bikes in the door entryway thinking that they would be safe unlocked. After the lesson they went back to find Sister Young's bike missing. The sad thing is that she only has two weeks left! They looked everywhere in the surrounding areas, but it was nowhere to be found. She was heart broken.
The next day they told their District Leader about the situation. He secretly took on the responsibility to find the stolen bike. They combed every street in San Benito for three hours, checking pawn shops, parks, and neighborhoods. They spotted two teenagers on bikes a little ways away. One of the bikes was abnormally red. Like I'm talking Neon red. The elder thought to himself, bikes aren't painted that red. He looked a little closer and saw Sister Young's U-Lock attached to the bar between the tires (sorry Ben Cork, I don't know my bike terminology) IT WAS SISTER YOUNG'S BIKE! The elders jumped in their car, had a street race with the teenager, and they obviously won. They got the what used to be a white bike back, and Sister Young can take it home... red. But hey, it still works. What a crazy story right?
Anyways. Life is full of miracles, sometimes we just need to take the time to see them. God is aware of everyone and provides a way. I received letters from a few of you this week encouraging me to keep my head up and be happy. I wanted to thank you so much, every letter is a treasure. (Literally. I keep them all.) I am so happy where I am.

In our church we believe that everyone is a child of God. Being sons and daughters of the same God makes us brothers and sisters. Male missionaries are called Elders because that is their title of the priesthood they hold. Female missionaries are called sisters, it too is just a title to remind us that we are all apart of God’s family.
Hermana is sister in Spanish, and since I will be speaking Spanish in Texas,
my official title will be
