July 7

Buenas Tardes mi familia!!!  Realamente no se que debo escribir esta semana.  El tiempo ha pasado muy rapido y no puedo crear que es lunes otra vez y que hay solamente una semana mas en este translado.  Que Rarro!  
    But seriously, time goes by so fast that I might be starting to lose my mind.  Yesterday was my 8th month mark!  So next month I will be halfway done with my mission!  Then time will really start to fly by.  
   This week nothing too crazy happened.  We had a great noche de hogar (Family home evening) with Gloria Cano and the Bishops family.  She is really started to understand this gospel and progress.  She is on date for baptism at the end of July but that will have to change to August now.  Because she is going out of town for two weeks on vacation.  But she loves the lifestyle of the church and now just needs to really pray to receive her answer.  I am excited for her and hope that she receives a testimony soon.  
  On Tuesday we met this girl named Nayeli who is 18 years old and completely awesome!  She was upfront with us and said she wasn't very religious but was willing to listen.  Until we taught her the Restoration on Thursday.  She loved it and it made so much sense to her.  When we recited the first vision she said she felt chills and that it was the coolest thing ever.  She wants to know everything and has so many questions.  Plus a girl named Demares from our ward keeps coming to her lessons and has really helped her feel comfortable!  I love this girl and she is so opened to this message and ready to accept it in her life.  Hopefully this week we can help her be put on date for baptism!
  Then we have an awesome member in our ward named Lupe Calderon.  She has invited all of her friends to listen to the lessons and we have had a blast teaching all of them!!  They love us and already love the church.  
   On 4th of July we just had a normal day.  We planned all day and then went out to work.  We actually taught one lesson which was surprising.  But then we went over to the Lunas house and joined them for their bbq.  I have to say, it was the best carne asada I have ever eaten in my entire life.  And they had the best tacos ever and mexican corn.  You know, the corn with mayo, cheese, and chili?  It sounds disgusting but it is glorious.  We literally ate for over an hour straight because Josue kept putting new food on our plates and it was all so good that we couldn't stop.  Then we were able to hang out for a bit and watch while the Elders and the members played futbol(soccer)  A game of soccer always breaks out with Latinos.  So 4th of July was a pretty good day.  But sadly we had to go in before we were able to see fireworks :(  pero esta bien.  La obra misional es mejor.  
   Then Saturday we went over to the Luna house with our entire district to clean Hermana Lunas kitchen after the fiesta.  She is a latina woman completely.  She hoards everything and I am pretty sure that she has just been piling up things in that kitchen for over 50 years and has never deep cleaned it.  Our district had a blast cleaning and finding surprises around every corner.  Man, I love my district and will miss them when we finally go our separate ways :'(  But that is just part of the mission as well, it will happen sooner or later.  
   Sunday was awesome!  We had an investigator come and also 2 people who we are going to start teaching.  They loved church and they already love the members.  Actually they already seem like members to everyone else.  It will be happening soon hopefully.  
   As for my health, my miracle happened!  This week I seem to be completely healed!  I feel so much better and my energy is coming back.  Honestly it has a lot to do with Sister Encarnacion haha.  She has helped me so much and I love her to death.  And this is my last week with her, which is so sad.  Because she has finished her mission and will be returning to Utah.  Which is where she lives now instead of Spain.  I won't see her for 10 months.  BUT we already have plans for me to move in with her family haha.  But I am so thankful for her.  She is such a great example for me and has changed my life in a lot of ways.  haha no matter how cheesy that sounds, it's true.
    But transfers are next week and we will see what happens.  But I am 99% sure that I am staying in Denver.  But we never know.  Thanks for all the support I have!  I love everyone so much and I love this Gospel!  I have seen this Gospel change lives and I know that it is the true church.  And I know without a doubt that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that serving Him brings more joy then we can every imagine!
  Con Amor,
   Hermana Adair
