Hello family and friendlies,

Welp this week was amazing. Obviously, because it was Conference weekend! I am the worst at choosing favorites, I get that from my mom, so I can't choose a favorite talk but really I loved all the talks. I loved being able to sustain the new Apostles, Elders Rasband, Stevenson, and Runland on Saturday afternoon and then being able to hear from them on Sunday morning. Their spirits are STRONG and I know that they have all been called by revelation from God to our true and living Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson. I really admire President Monson's strength and conviction and I believe that it is a testament to his true calling. Although we wasn't doing too well and was obviously struggling to stand and speak, he continued in his strong testimony of the Savior and did all he could to continue bearing prophetic witness. I love him, and I know that he truly is the Prophet of God. I encourage all of you to read and prayerfully study the words of the chosen leaders of God's only true church today. Watch and reread the talks. Ponderize a scripture this week. Let your light so shine. Be an example of the believers.

Today is super busy because it is transfers!!! I'm not getting transferred away from Hemet, but my companionship is changing. Hermana Sager and I are staying together and Hermana Babb will be joining us in a TRIO!! Remember how I said I can't choose favorites? Well, my favorite number is 3! Anyway, Hermana Castrillon is going back to DE ANZA IN JURUPA to finish her mission, lucky! And I get to stay here and take over both areas with the babies who are no longer going to be babies! It's definitely going to be an adventure. I will still be an STL but this is my first transfer in a LONG time not training! There are no Spanish Hermanas coming in this change so next transfer I think I will be getting transferred out of Hemet and the other two Hermanas will stay and resplit the areas! Anyway, we do have to change apartments, so I'm low on time today. Please just send mail to the mission office and I'll let you know my new address as soon as I learn it hahaha. I love you all!!
