Lock Your Heart

 Rosa and Jacqueline Mares got baptized this week! (Mother and Daughter) Everything was so wonderful!...except one thing...Jacqueline didn't tell us she had a fear of water until it was her time to get baptized. heh heh.. Glad to report...she was successfully baptized after plenty of reassurance that she wouldn't die.  :) Hermano Paz from the bishopric baptized them both :)
 I LOVE these people. With all my heart.
 Last Mission Trails District picture before transfers :) This is an awesome group of missionaries here just so you all know. Doing good work here.

Gonna miss 'em... :'( 

(Just Sister Adams, Elder Rosales and Elder Mammales...because we're staying for another transfer! Yay!)
 This is Rudy and Ruby. Most pure-like souls I've ever met! They have both been waiting for this day for a long time and were looking forward to it with such anticipation. They were so nervous but they both got up and bore their testimonies after getting baptized and I felt a little un-worthy just sitting next to them...:)

Rudy and Ruby with their little brother Carlitos and their amazing mother Claudia.
 The Salas Family :)
Also...how cute is this little boy with his Sunday dress shoes?
 Then later we had another service. Two of our wonderful investigators just got married a few weeks ago and their goal is 1 year from this last Saturday to enter the temple as a family and be sealed for time and all eternity. He has the most amazing smile and we found out after the we took this that he is self-conscious about his smile! ...We were not about to let that slide...we wanted his smile in the picture...
 Almost gave up...but didn't:)
...look how cute! Love that baby :)
 And guess who baptized him!!!????.........one of our recent converts!
It was awesome! He practiced all week long and had it down pat. 
The Lord is doing amazing things here in Horizon, Texas.
 And to continue my smurfing for the week...look who helped me fill up the font?
 Also...Elder Smurf loves to ring doorbells
...he comes with me everywhere.
 Congratulations to Sister Adams who has been called to be an STL
this week!.. but unfortunately is leaving us to go up North. We will sure

miss her. Sister Adams is a great study buddy :) 
Love being onexchanges with the wonderful sisters here in the El Paso Zone. 
 One of the things we talk about in the mission (especially with the influx of all these new sisters to the mission) is the relationship between Sisters and Elders. Sister Biancardi and I recently gave a presentation on this in our district meeting and it's just so simple. You lock your heart. No distractions. You're a missionary and you are expected to think and act as a true disciple of Jesus Christ would. However...it's very easy for me because my heart IS locked. ...with this little boy ;) So adorable. I'm totally going to show this picture at MLC this week.

Miss you and love you FAMILY!! Enjoy the day and smile. This Sister
Missionary loves you so much!! -Hermana Silva
