Dear Mom!
 As for this week, it was a pretty interesting adjustment from car to bike. If we had moved into the other apartment we probably would have kept all the old area and have given the sisters everything above Rialto Ave. But instead we are only going down to the freeway and we are taking a little piece above of Foothill Ave. Along with that we had all the stress of setting up a baptism. Making sure the people speaking are ready, that the building is reserved, baptismal suit fits, programs, music, and a whole bunch of other things. So our lessons for the week were a little low because we had to make sure everything was still good.
On Wednesday we had a meeting with the sisters to split the areas and we met the new sister in the ward. She seems pretty cool. Her name is Hermana Ipson, and she is from Utah. So its 2 from Utah and 2 not. So the ward is evenly split haha. We had a really good lesson with the M. family. Hna says she really wants to come to church. She is sick so she doesn't have a lot of energy but we are going to keep working with them to help build them up. 
Basically the next biggest thing was Saturday. When Maggy Got Baptized!!!!! It was super awesome!!! There weren't a whole lot of people that came but it was still really good. On Sunday she was confirmed a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was super cool because I confirmed her a member. It was kind of scary. I really don't like having huge groups of people looking at me so I was really nervous but it went good. Her dad came to church for the first time which was awesome!! and that basically takes us to today. 

I'm sorry it’s not a lot but that’s basically what happened. It’s been a long, stressful, but fulfilling week. 
I love you all. I know this church is true and that Jesus Christ leads this work! I'm so grateful to be able to serve a mission and help others find true happiness and peace in this crazy world. 
I hope you all have a great week!!
