Hola everyone!! Hope you are all doing well and know that I am sending lots of love your way from Mexico City! This week has been AMAZING!!!!!! Just so many spiritual experiences and tender mercies from the Lord. Being a missionary really is the greatest.

This week the Pope is in town, obviously I didn´t get to see him but all my teachers complain about it because all the roads are closed because of it haha. So this week for the devotional we got to hear from an apostle and it was the coolest thing ever! If you didn't already get this honestly was that I from the subject it was Dallin H. Oaks! It was really cool for me because for I got to sit right by Emily Wixom and we also got to randomly hear from him 2 years ago and we met him together! Then here we are in mexico City on a mission together meeting him again. It was a really cool experience. I love the spirit that you can feel when an apostle of the Lord is in your presence because you can feel the spirit so strongly and you can see that he is a man of God.

One of my favorite things about the CCM is talking to all the Latinos! I seriously love it because first of all it´s practice and also because they are really just a loving people and they just love to have fun! Sometimes I know what I am saying doesn´t even really make sense but they get the jist and it´s fun to talk. ANYWAY, so the other day I was talking to some of my Latino friends and they stopped and were like "wait I know who you look like! You look like Harry Potter´s girlfriend!" Haha it took me a second to get what they were saying but when I did I thought it was hilarious that they pointed that out because I actually get that a lot! Haha so now they all call me Weasley and it's just kinda funny.

Today was a wonderful P-Day because we had the chance to go to the Mexico City temple today! That temple is so gorgeous and it is so big! I love the spirit I feel when I go to the temple and I´m so grateful that I was able to go today.

Sometimes I forget how lucky I truly am for all the many blessings I have received in my life. I have been blessed with so much and now I just want to work everyday to try to be worthy of the blessings that I have received. Thank you all for the amazing examples you have been in my life, I would not be here without you. Remember that God loves you and that I love you! Have a fantastic week!

Hey everyone! I honestly dont even know how to start this email. Its so crazy knowing that I am a missionary now. I LOVE IT! Being a missionary is honestly the best thing and the best feeling. Don't get me wrong it has been one of the harder weeks of my life for sure but it has also been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. Thank you all so much for your emails, they really mean the world to me! Also they have a thing here that is like dear elder, just a little bit different. So you just send a normal email to and then in the subject line you put my name and then 15A. Haha just in case you wanted to, my family has already sent me some and it makes my day! The CCM is seriously the most awesome place and lately the days have been flying by because there is just so much to do! The spirit here is so strong and the teachers I have are some of the most amazing people I have met(even though they speak Spanish most of the time haha). Honestly one of my first experiences speaking Spanish was pretty funny. It was literally right when we landed in Mexico City and we went into the bathroom and I asked the lady that was working in there where the soap was, well I thought I said soap but I actually said soup hahahah I was really embarrassed and she was so confused! My companions name is Hermana Stacey and she is amazing!! Oh my gosh I love her! She's super sassy and hilarious! And I am really glad that I lucked out with a great companion because it makes this experience that much easier. Also, I literally see Emily Wixom like all the time! It is awesome! She was one of the first people that I saw when I got here. The crazy thing is that we are in the same branch and there are only about 18 people in a branch and there are about 300 missionaries in the CCM. I am so grateful for this opportunity that I have to serve the Lord and I can already tell the difference that it is making in my life. I love you all so much and even though it is hard being away from you guys I know that it is worth it. Until next week! Hermana Stewart P.S. Haha this thing is super confusing so I really don't know how to add pics so hopefully it worked and I put some good ones haha.....,.
