   I'm leaving my birth area! I'm being transferred, and I have no idea where I'm going because all but two (Pasadena & Pecan Park) areas are training, and I didn't get called to train this transfer! I'm really happy that President is giving me a little training break, because so far I've been the only Hna  who trained back to back. phewww. The logical thing would be for me to go to Pecan Park, but Hna Arcila isn't currently serving there, and we're not sure if President is going to put two native Spanish speakers together, so honestly, I'm stumped, but so excited!
   This week was a little slow, I experienced snow days #2 & 3 on the mission because Hna Tonga was out with the flu two days back to back. Let's just say I got very well acquainted with the Bible Dictionary, the first 11 chapters of Genesis, a bit of Revelations, and a whole lot of Book of Mormon and D&C sections. It felt so god to see the sunshine after being cooped up two days in doors.
   I'm so excited and ready to meet the wonderful people of my new area! It feels like prepping for the first day of school all over again! :) But of course, Pasadena will always hold a special espacio en mi corazon!
Te amo!
Hna Flores

My scriptures got a makeover.
Sick day #2 = all day long 
study session. We had cuban burgers (so delicious!) for lunch with the Familia Serrano!
La Familia Toscano's new dog, I think it looks like Chewbacca. :]
