Wisdom Teeth Blues and Sign Language

Hola Familia! So cool that you are in NY right now! Send me pictures please :) So as far as the wisdom teeth go, Im not sure what to do on that. I have been ok this week and they really havent been hurting me, its just a little bit of pressure on the top ones but i dont know. Ill let you know more about that in my letter this week. Thanks for the cute card that you sent me this week :) The boot comes off Feb 1 so im really excited about that!!! This past week was good. We had an amazing lesson with Yolanda and her two sons at temple square this week. She really was able to recognize the spirit so strongly. She was touched by the things that she was able to see and feel there. We also took her to see the temple model and she wants to prepare to be sealed to her family in the temple in a year. She is amazingly prepared and we are so excited for the progress that she is making. She and her two sons committed to be baptized on Feb 1st!!! The best part is that her nephew Ernesto who just got baptized is getting the priesthood on sunday so he will be able to baptize them all :) Sooo exciting! We have zone conference on Thursday so we have been studying and prepping for that, it should be good so i should have a ton of cool things to share next week. Something cool this week: So in our stake we have our spanish branch , a japanese branch and a deaf ward. So this week was ward conference and the relief society president is from the deaf ward. Soo she was teaching the lesson (signing the whole thing) and there was an interpreter. So she was signing the lesson in english and the interpreter was translating her signs into spanish, it was so cool. Her lesson was talking about the Doctrine of Christ ( Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, Enduring to the End). So she said that she would teach us something cool with our hands. She had us pretend that each finger was a principle. Then she said which ones do we do continually and which ones are only one time. Well baptism and the Holy Ghost you can only do the ordinance one time right? so cross those off. so if you are holding your hand up and you put down your 3rd and 4th finger (baptism and holy ghost) then you make the I love you sign in sign language--cool huh? So as we continue to have faith, repent daily, and endure to the end, we show our heavenly father how much we love him. Other than that things are good, be expecting a letter this week :) I love you and hope you had fun in NY :) Sister Adorable
