                                                              (erin and me at the MTC)
One week down :)
I am alive and well and I love my mission so much, holy smokes!
So my last Sunday in the MTC was a little sad but not really. Except I was a one man show. I got called on to give a talk, I sang with my district, and I gave the lesson in district meeting. Phew. Fun times. But it was so good to leave because the food was starting to make me mad at society. 
First day in CA was a GT (good time lol kenz). I went out knocking in North Hollywood with my homegirl Sister F. She's poly aka we had the best time, it was so fun.
Then I got my companion the next day at transfer meeting... SISTER M ! She is like my twin. Hahaha we are so funny and have the best time and work so well together. She reminds me A LOT of Ashlyn. So ya I love her a lot. We are doing really well right now with like 7 progressing investigators and 3 baptismal dates so pray for us that we will continue to pull up clutch. And because we have a lot, our days are very busy which is SO GOOD.
                                                  (went to LA Temple with our investigators)
The area... I am really really lucky. I am in Santa Clarita, aka the best area in the mission with the nicest people and the best members in the world. They feed us every single night and take us out for like Olive Garden and Tepanyaki and give us Dodger apparel and take us golfing lol. But most of all they are the most genuine people ever. Gosh I love them so much. And our investigators have my heart. Gosh I love them so much. I was legit sitting in a lesson and my heart started hurting a little bit because I was so happy aka I was the Grinch and my heart has already grown 3 sizes.
(My first P-day)
K coolest thing happened. It won't sound cool but it was. We asked our buddies the Zone Leaders to come over and give us blessings to start off the transfer and get this.. Elder B knows nothing about me and a big portion of my blessing was about my family. And how they are alright and I don't need to worry about them and that they will be comforted by angels while I'm gone. And a whole lot of other way cool stuff. GOD IS GOOD LADIES AND GENTS!
I have already seen so many miracles on my mission. There have been multiple times where I felt like I was just kicking back and the spirit was talking for me. Out of body experiences I tell you. Hearts have been softened and God has worked wonders. I love my mission so much. I love my people so much. I love my companion so much. 
You know, I came out here because I have seen the gospel bless my life and I wanted to bring those blessings and happiness to others. I stay out here because I love the Lord and I love the people. I love being a missionary. I can seriously say I have never been so happy. 
I want you all to know that I love you so much. I am sad to leave you all, especially at this time, but I want you to know I am going to work hard and do the Lord's work. I AM HIS NOW. I already feel like I have a good pre-mortal friend here that I NEED to find. This gospel is the truest. It makes me happier than anything. Even Harry Potter and blue raspberry Nerd slushes. THERE I SAID IT.
So Sista M and I have made a lot of goals. Some of the goals we made were to notice the daily miracles in our lives and to reflect everyday with the question, "Have I done any good today?" FAMILIA Y FRIENDZ don't lose out and take this commitment I give you: 
Search for the miracles each day and reflect on your life. If you aren't using every day to come closer to God and strengthen your relationship with Jesus then you fail indeed. Be cool and be righteous. I promise promise promise you will be 1203812093 times more happy. 

Well I love you all so so so much. Stay frosty.

-Sista D
