So, we're here in the middle of NOWHERE in our new area, and I love it. And we're not even in the state of Mexico anymore..WHAT? Ya, we're in Hidalgo. Its like a million years away from everyone else in the mision haha. It's called Atotonilco or aka aPOLVOnilco. Polvo means like dirt... So its just drowning in dust and dirt here. its a really good thing I have glasses or Id probably have a desert in my eyes.
We dont really know anyone here because were opening the area so its been a little different but its going. We aren't even living in our area either, were living in different hermanas area because were waiting for another house in our area. I dont know, its just all super confusing. We dont even have pamphlets yet.. or a phone... So I dont know exactly how weve been getting away with that, but we're just waiting for it all to come in.
My companion Hermana Fondeur is from the Domican Republicccc! And her name is french, and she wants to be an actress, and she appreciates all forms of art like me, so we're basically going to get along superrrr well. Shes a little bit in culture shock Im pretty sure, but she'll get used to it.

Exchanges at the offices are always fun

And a sweeeeet photo of my companion in front of our super cool yellow stainglass door we have in our kitchen. Ya. That's art.

I'm pregnant!

Okay not really, but we recieved exchanges! Tomorrow I will be training someone new and we are going to open a new area. WHAT. Ya, Im kind of nervous, but I know with the Lord on my side, we are going to have miracles.
I{ll be in Atoconilco en Hidalgo. Supposedly its really pretty so Im super stoked. Also supposedly it has a lot of muds and hills, DOUBLE STOKED. No but im really excited for change. Ive been in the same area my whole mission so far and it can get a little... well ya.
Im going to miss everyone here so much, it has been a lot of ups and downs, but the ups are what make it so sweet.

-My companion crying because Im leaving her (this is not fake...)
-us you know...just chilling en la casa
-The family that we were able to help get back into the church and baptize their son Diego. What wonderful people.

Ojala que todo esta bien!
I love you all! les quiero mucho
con amor,
Hna Waddell

Her companion is really crying because Emily will be leaving sad!

Im going to dedicate my email to this beautiful inspiring work of art.

This is a beautiful story about the conversion of someone who was basically at the bottom of the well.

It made me think a lot about the mission and about those little seeds we plant without even knowing it. Made me think of the beauty of this life, and the perfectness of this Gospel of Jesus Christ. Ive been pondering a lot about the whole concept of a mission, it{s actually something really strange if you think abou it a lot, but along with that something more marvelous than we can imagine at times.

It{s like a dream
The days still the same
From yes to no to maybe so
Their agency is tame

Its like a dream
We cant control the way
Whether we{ve done all that we can do
It doesnt mean that they will stay

Its like a dream
When you wake up youre asleep
With this joy mixed with worry
The time we can not keep

Its like a dream
We are in the service of Him our Lord
From aching feet to constant heat
We are constantly ignored

But a dream it is I say again
I cant fathom the beauty now
From the souls that change their hearts to Him
I understand the purpose now.

This life is beautiful. Especially the little things. Search for those things so that we can grow closer to Him. I know He´s here watching and caring for each and every one of us. Love you all. Im obsessed with this video and I hope you can all appreciate it as well.

Con amor,

Hna Waddell
