So I don´t have a ton of time to right but what a great weekend!!!
When we were waiting in our stake center to hear the last session we went outside and one grandpa when he walked passed said that I am bright from far away (usted brilla desde muy lejos). And in my mind I was like, "I do feel pretty briliant... It is not because I am so smart but because I just feel so good to hear the word of God through a living prophet and apostles". I really just did not want it to end... but we have to "go and do" at some point or other, verdad?
This week was great. We have some investigators that are progressing very well. I am so grateful to be hear. To know of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. To have the knowledge to "look to God and live"!!!
I love you all so much and I am so excited for the adventures that lie ahead for all of you and for me too!!!
Thanks for being my awesome family!!
Con mucho amor, Hermana Taylor

So this week was great, we have some really great investigators that are progressing very well. With one of them, for some reason, and I think I know why... it has been really hard to get her to church even though she is really excited to know about the gospel. We can only teach her on sundays because she works and she doesn´t have a phone. So we have been trying to contact her through her daughter, that only comes to see her on sundays and mondays, so that she can know that we are coming to pick her up. Really it has been rough communication to get her to church and her daughter left her phone uncharged in her moms house this whole week and got sick along with her family so she didn´t come to wake up her mom for church, but this week they are super excited to go to conference.
Gosh!!! are you guys just so excited to go to conference!!! I am!!!!!!So there are lots of butterflies here and I feel like I see chrysalis always!!! it is so sweet!!Funny story... So we went to the zoo today with some other hermanas and we were by the elefents and a woman comes up to me and ask"do you speak english" (in an accent like russian or french) and I say "uh huh" and she asks "do you know where the exit is" and I say "si, esta por alla" not even realizing that I am talking in spanish still and she is just sitting there confused. Then another americana misionera comes and saves me with her english. I felt a little bad after, I don´t know why I didn´t realize that she wanted me to speak in english... but it was funny.
I love you all so much!!
