Well Diriamba is as cold as ever this week we met a sweet old man named Geronimo we talked to him for a long while he can’t read but he knows soooo much!! We are going to help him learn to read it’s going to be awesome!!

The ward here is really good they really do help when they say they will and their testimonies are so strong!!

New area Diriamba Nicaragua and a new companion Hermana Lagos from Honduras.

Well today they told me I will be going home the 6th of August.. I was sitting in Sacrament meeting this last week and they were singing I know that My Redeemer Lives and I looked at my investigators sitting next to me and I almost started crying.... I just had the strongest feeling that I don’t want to leave here I want all of you to come here!! 

Well I had changes this week I am  in Diriamba with Hermana Lagos she is seriously one of the Prettiest sister missionaries here I just love her ever since she got here I have wanted  to be her companion and here I am with her!! I just love it!! She is from Honduras!! 

Well I love you all. 

So we are teaching a kid named Eliezar he is awesome but he LOVES coffee... we need some ideas to help him to stop! Let me know what you think!! 

Then we met a girl named Alba this last week and she said yes I am going to church Sunday and SHE DID she is just so awesome she told us if God sent you here it’s because he wants something with me so let’s do this! AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME. 

Well this area I am in is FREEZING well not really it’s like Mesa in the winter but with Round Valley winds ALL THE TIME I love it but God is preparing me for life after because....my house has an American looking bathroom and CARPET....and a walk in closet..... and there is a lady that cleans are house....It is soooo weird 

Well keep praying for rain here so these people can eat and have a break from the heat.

I love you all so much and will keep you updated on everything.

May 4, 2015 (Nindiri Nicaragua)

Jonathan got baptized!  H. Ordonez and H. Udall
Oh man I miss you guys...all of you so much! JONATHAN GOT BAPTISED!!!! You all know me and you know I don’t cry but when this little guy left the water. Then the little goof ball started to try and swim...oh man.... But the best part about it was the phone call he gave us that night he was crying and he said sister Udall thank you for teaching me and bringing this gospel to my life you are an angel in my life I am crying right now and it’s because I am happy! He said I now have a reason to live... I am clean! Moments like that are what I live for!!! 

Well this week I got a very sad phone call it was happy because I got to talk to people from Nandaime but they told me that Brunilda passed away......

When I heard I got sad but then I was just enveloped with a warm love feeling and the words (Don’t worry about her. Don’t be sad she is here with me waiting for you return with honor I love you) I LOVE HEAVENLY FATHER and he loves me!! 

THE RAINS HAVE STARTED so do you guys remember this time last year when I was in NAndaime and it flooded everywhere well the time has come again.... I love love the rain because it cools down here enough to use a small sweater. Let’s just hope I don’t get a cold!! 

Well… Spiritual thought for the day.....Alma 26:30 and then 27. Doesn’t matter where you are or what you've been through God loves you and knows you!!! And I do too!!! I will be home to bug you all about going to church soon enough!! I love you all!!!!
