Momotomongo

family and friends, 
          this past week was pretty crazy. full of so many events. new years was crazy hear drunk people everywhere. fireworks non stop. new years i spent with a family that i absolutely love for dinner it was so fun. My comp and i experienced a miracle on friday. We have been teaching this hermana named maritza. her son was baptized and then after we started teaching her. we put a fecha with her for this past friday but all week she was not in her house. so the day of her baptism we passed by her house and no one was there. so we went to our mission leaders house and right as we walked into their little house hermana maritsa walked by the house. I was like hermana maritsa!!!!! haha and so we ran out and greated her and she was headed to go visit her mom. but she said my baptism is today right and we were like yes! haha and she was like well can i get baptised at 7:30 and we were like yes! haha so we hurried and found clothes and prepared the font. i was so happy because we had been 3 weeks without a baptism and we had been praying so hard for our ivestigators. it was my comps first baptism and he got to baptize her. it was so special and then after she bore the most powerful testimony ever. she is so awesome. 
          Also yesterday my zone had an activity with the zone in Leon. I was so happy that we were going to leave managua and see another part of nicaragua. we arrived in Leon and we went to momotomongo which is a volcano. it was the best view and most awesome experience. we went with the president and his wife. it was so fun. we also grilled hot dogs over a fire. it was so fun. but then before we ate president called me over and told me to go with him to go buy ice so i left with him and his wife in their car to go buy ice. i dont think i have ever been more scared hahaha it was so fun though and i got to know them a little bit more. but as we were returning to where all the other missionaries were he said he needed to tell me something. and this was after he asked about my investigators and everything. and i was like okay im ready and he told me that he feels that i should be zone leader after when this exchange ends. and he told me to study and pray for guidance. i was absolutely shocked but i said thank you and said that i will do it. wowwwww haha i have been thinking a lot and i really just am relying on the lord. i know that he has called me to this position because he knows i can do it. so that was exciting news. but then after the president took us to the beach and it was so awesome i will send pictures. i also got so sick on this trip i asked some lady if i could use her bathroom and she was like of course and it was just a hole in the ground and there was no toilet paper so i took a branch off a tree and used leevessss hahah and then this morning i became a real missionary. i had an accident in my pants. worst experience in my life hahaha. well that was probably to much information but there you go. i have come to love my mission so much. i have learned sp much and have grown so much love for these people. i know that this church is true with no doubt in my mind and have come to love my savior so much and really have learned to rely on him. i love you guys so much and happy new year. hope your breaks were so fun and just know that i love you guys
