3. this is a road in my area... yup not driving on it for a while!
so my conpanion is getting transeferred but i am staying in magma ranch for a while!!
can i just say how amazing christmas is? really! we get to celebrate our savior! not just because he was born, but because we know what he has done for us!
so sister henderson and i matched on christmas on purpose... we didnt get a pic but sister ord sent one to my parents so hopefully it goes on the blog (hint hint!)
we are really just dorks, like honestly! we were trying to push eachother over by leaning on eachother as we walked yesterday as we were caroliing as a zone! we tackle each other and its just a blast! but yeah she is going to be transferred, but i know i will love my next companion(whoever they may be) just as much!

|Saw this and thought it was the bomb diggity....|
because ITS TRUE!!!
|Me with a cactus in a place in Florence called|
Cactus Forest... so many cacti :)
|Corona kids!!!! All but the youngest got baptized!!!|
we had a baptism!! it was so cool watching the baptism, the dad got the okay to do it, and it was amazing, the little girl, Taylor told us afterwards that she felt clean. and then the oldest got the priesthood!! it was cool just feeling the spirit there, really, if your testimony is ever wavering, go to a baptism, talk about the confirmation that all we say as missionaries is true!! really Heavenly father loves us, and the atonement of Jesus Christ is real! he is our savior! and we can be cleansed from all of life's stains. it was amazing, watching as each one was baptized, the dad asked each one if they were ready, him being less active in the past, he knew how much the covenants(promises) we make really mean. and they each said yes! then he said the prayer, and put them under the water, each time, you could feel the spirit in the air as it washed away everything! then each one looked up at their dad and beamed at him, then they looked to us and smiled! their mom was crying, we were crying, it was just a blast! then their mom gave us and two other sisters that started to work with them before us a present, it was a necklace and a set of earrings saying that sisters make the best friends, she told us that if it wasn't for us her family would have never been walking through the church doors. it was so cool! she was like this is so you will not forget us when you get off your missions and go on in life and i was like SISTER CORONA I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU! like really! the friendships you make on a mission are so crazy!! i really am going to pick up sister Henderson, drive down here, stay with the Stoddards, Ketchers, and who knows who else i will acquire on my mission, then pick up sister Corona, and go to Disneyland in 18 months when i get home. really its going to be a Disney road trip!! (and i am going to hug a few of the brothers in this mission because i cant right now)
well that is really it for this week, have a merry merry Christmas, remember that i love all of you and that so does Heavenly Father! if you ever feel like you are not worthy of that love STOP IT!! and email me and i will type out how much Heavenly Father loves you BECAUSE HE DOES!!! isnt that cool? like literally if you pray and ask, you will have a literal member of the Godhead answer you with a resounding YES. try it! it works! (if you want it too)
love you all!
sister, hermana, sestra whatever Cordon!
