March 22, 2016 Es que no tengo horario fijo (I have no regular schedule)

Buenos días!

What's up everyone?? It's the end of another transfer, 7 weeks down in Logan Heights already. The transfer news is in and.......Elder Burt and I are staying together. Thank goodness. We were a little worried, not gonna lie, we have a lot of good things going on in the area and so we were hoping we would stay together. Elder Najera went home and Elder Winn is getting a brand new missionary.

This past week was a blur, last week elder Winn sprained his ankle pretty bad so we have been on bikes some of the time so they can use the car. It's been kinda fun but also kind of inconvenient because our area is pretty big! It feels good to be outside in the area though, you get to know the area better and talk to more people.

It's been a crazy week. Gissel got baptized, and there were a lot of miracles leading up to that. Gissel has a rock solid testimony, and it's super clear that Sagan was trying really hard to keep her from getting baptized. We went by Friday night, the night before her baptism just to talk to her and she had had some problems so bad that she had packed her bags at one point and was ready to go to Rosarito (Mexico), we were able to share some scriptures with her and give her a blessing and she got baptized Saturday morning. Sunday her 1 year old burned his hand really bad and she said she wasn't going to make it to church to get confirmed, but out of the blue she called and said she was on her way. So we confirmed her and she was able to receive the Holy Ghost. Thank goodness. Then Sunday night we had a mission president's fireside where she was going to share her testimony, but last minute she called and said she didn't have a ride, we scrambled and got a member to take her, but the address we had for her was suuuuuper wrong... And so we had to scramble to get the member to the right place. Luckily she made it there just as the first song was being sung and she bore a beautiful, powerful testimony. She's an awesome inspiration and she's super happy she persevered through all of these trials. A lot of people could have used those things as an excuse, but she made it!

That was probably the highlight of the week, Elder Winn and I had an awesome exchange on Saturday, we had an awesome day at church, even bough Elder Burt and I had to teach gospel principles last minute, they told us as we walked to class... It turned out to be a really spiritual lesson about the Life of Christ. Super fitting for the week before Easter.

I hope we call all remember the Savior and His atonement and resurrection this week as we approach Easter. It's an amazing opportunity to reflect on the love our Father in Heaven and Jesus Christ have for us. Christ lives, he overcame everything for us and  because of that can help us to overcome everything.

I love you all!
Elder Hansen
