Juanita and Ramon Getting Married

Hola hola!! Como está? 
Pues, this week we got everything as far as paperwork done for Juanita´s and Ramon´s wedding. Here, it is a longggg process! You have to go get a bunch of tests done and It is a lot of paperwork. Well on Wednesday, we took them to Tula to get their blood tests done and Ramon passed out Haha, it was interesting because we were their "family" there so they turned him over to us and he was in and out for about 20 minutes. It was quite the adventure. But, now everything is ready and they will be getting married on Thursday at 3:00 :) Then on Saturday at 12:00 ,Juanita is getting baptized and on Sunday she will be confirmed. We actually reached our goals this month! Two baptisms! :) 

I do not have much to report this week, as we were busy with all the wedding stuff. We are working hard, doing a lot of walking.. all day long. And.. sadly, my shoes died this week. I do not have black shoes anymore. So I am hoping to get my package this week, and I am praying that my shoes did not get stolen. I need them. Haha.

 I love you and hope all is well! Until next week- Hna Turek

I'm the Senior Comp now

hola hola! como está? bien bien? This week was a crazy one! On Tuesday, we had transfers. We had to go to Cuautitlan Izcalli to drop off Hna. Gonzalez and to pick up the other Hna. Gonzalez. It was an adventure. I was slightly nervous for the return, because we went in bus and I was worried I would get lost on the return.. but everything was good. :) On Thursday, we changed houses!! That was also an adventure. The only people that came to help us were the Bishop, Hno. Jared, and for the first time ever our district leader and his comp. decided they could help us. What a miracle!!! On Friday, we had a zone conference. I spent most of the time in the bathroom throwing up my stomach acid. What a great time that was! I do not understand why I get sick so easily here.. :(

Yesterday, Maricela was confirmed a member of the church! Woot! She had a huge smile on her face the whole time. It is funny how people are saved for the right time. I do not remember if I told you this or not, but we were the fourth set of missionaries to teach her. She has set a really good example for Ramon and Juanita. They are planning on getting married right now.. but Ramon still needs to stop drinking. Please pray for him. 

Things as Senior companion are stressful. Haha. Everything depends on you, and you are the one to get in trouble when things go bad.. but luckily nothing has gone bad yet. My zone leaders and distirct leader have been really good with me. I think they new I was quite nervous to be Sr. comp. But all has been well so far.

My new companion is Hna. Gonzalez. She is from Nicaragua. She has been a member for 4 years. Her conversion story is crazy. The Elders paid her to be baptized and she has not been very active. Right now, her family is not active at all. But I know that she will be a example for them. 

I think that is all the exciting news I have for this week. Please send prayers our way. We can always use them. Con mucho, mucho amor- Hna Turek
