Here to the very end :)

Quote of the Week: "So.... What does your church think about Aliens?"
Joke of the Week: Why do seaguls live by the sea? Cause if they lived by the bay they'd be bagels! 
Sometimes as we're finding, teaching, baptizing, and retaining, l feel like Jeramiah. People have such HUGE problems in their lives, and want to scream at them, "l'm a child! l can't speak!" But... then as l continue reading the chapter, l remember that Jeramiah was chosen of God, and God gave him the words to say. Although l'm not a prophet, l have been chosen to represent Him. Entonces, l've got the same promise that Jeramiah had, that God would put the words in his mouth. l love how the Lord was so straight up with him! "But the Lord said unto me, Say not, I am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall send thee,and whatsoever I command thee thou shalt speak. Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the Lord.Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thymouth."
l know that every missionary (full time or part time) has that promise too. He knows us, and more importantly, He knows the people we're teaching! And He will give us the right words to say :)
Well l've definitely had many opportunities where l said the wrong. thing. Hahaha last week we were talking to the friend of a member, and they were joking around about religion, and one said that he was a Jew. We totally thought he was joking, and l was like, "Man you've hidden your Yamaca reeeaally well!" 
He's really a Jew.
Hahahaha
Well, this week l also recieved the infamous "Trunky Packet." But... l'm not really trunky at all! There's all sorts of talks about "finishing strong" .... But l've still got a TON of weeks left :) l'm here till the very end. 
This gospel is true. l know that fasting has real power. l know that prayer is powerful, and people receive REAL answers from God if they look for them. Please pray for my people here. We've got a TON of investigators praying hard for answers, and we just need to help them recognize them. 
Paz,
Hermana Banana

Pictures: 
Saying good bye to the transfered and going home souls :(
Oh ya and the other message had a lovely picture of us being all sweaty from biking  :P
Oh ya cool story! So some recent converts in our ward invited their friends to church and last sabado the whole family was baptized! 
Also, some couples were sealed in the temple and so we had a sweet boda :)
Being dorkuses!

Hna. Lopez thought l looked funny enough doing a back bend that she'd take a picture
Golden Corral with the zone (member gave us gift cards!)
l think l've done more "selfie" pictures on the mission than at any other time of my life. Food for thought.
CAMILLA! :)
sick. 5 feet long. 2-3 inches thick. SNAKE! scared the daylights out of us.
Sometimes members try to text in spanish, but their phones are set to predictive in ingles. Hahaha we we're pretty proud of ourselves when we figured it out! "Hermanas pueden abrir la capilla esta noche a las 6:50"
This was the baptism that we brought flowers to a few weeks ago. She's an awesome lady :)
Quincenera! haha 15 months :)
Our old pet turtle Squish :'( He's in a better place now.
lf it weren't for exact obedience and our lack of parenting skills, we'd have totally kept him.
The day of the youth presentation :) The young women made the cute flower head things!
l cut off my bangs last week :)
this picture sending process is testing my patience.
