This week was hard....and weird...and christmas is not as big in Mexico as it is in the States...but with all of the contacting the cats and birds because there wasnt anyone  home....we kept our smile and our faith....My companion and I keep going sweeping our whole area trying to sing to people hahaha....singing also isnt the biggest thing in mexico....chrismas caroling is weird here....but we KNEW there was going to be a miracle...and this week some how or another we ran into one of our new investigators every single day in the street or at the bus stop or in the store....her  name is Katy and she is such a Hippie its amazing!!! and she has the cutest kids that have been going to church for a while but arent baptized because of problems....Well at the end of the week sunday she showed up at church her very first time to go with her kids....and she had read a lot of the book of mormon that week alllll of first nephi.....So this lucky day also our old investigator diego showed up.....with a different kind of light to his face.... with our Mission President at our ward this sunday he was able to talk to them and answer questions and doubts they had. Later we had a wonderful lesson with Katy.....who we found out here sister lives in hawaii.....and she feels she has finally found the right path for her......I know that when we work hard our Heavenly Father gives us blessings and he promised us success when we work hard.....He listens and answers in his  ways! I really love this hippie family and I know they are in my life personally for a reason....as I am in theirs. I hope you all had a wonderful Navidad and a Happpy New Year! Love yas. hermana waddell

This week has been so great with the new he is the gift stuff that is going on. and we have been practicing for this coming friday we will do a little missionary "flash mob" type thing in the big mall that is here in the city of Culiacan! allllll of the missionaries of culiacan are going to sing, we have solos duets and sing together! I know that with the lord we will be able to sing and touch peoples hearts! This is going to be an opportunity for us to show Culiacan who we are and WHO we represent and really the reason we have christmas..The power the spirit brings through music is unexplainable. Se que vamos a tener muchisimo exito con este oportunidad. Se que este oportunidad es inspirada de Dios y estoy muuuuyy emocionada. Share your talents with others we all have something to give and it is important to let your light shine. I can testify in this moment that there are specific people that you need and specific people that need you. Dont let these opportunities pass you by! and I just want to testify that when we work in unity when we work as one, we have the support of our heavenly father. lets share our gifts with one another and work together to build zion. This is my president of relief society and the taller one ella es como mi mama! and suki my dog in the mission.......les quiero muchoooo y perdon por mis palabras nunca tengo tiempo....pero ojala que entiendan....cuidese mucho hermana waddell

Update from her mom....Megan had parasites and they use very strong medicine to get rid of them all. It was so strong it made her sick again and the dr. reevaluated the dosage and lowered it and she is now parasite and medicine free and feeling much better. She has suffered physical ailments in Mexico, but has an extremely positive attitude and recovers quickly with great care from her Mission President and his wife and many wonderful members from church. She is anxiously engaged in Heavenly Father's work. He watches over her I know it. As her mother, I love and miss her with every breath I take, and I find comfort in knowing that she is indeed a servant of the Lord on His errand to bring souls unto Christ. What a joy and blessing she is to our family and friends and to the people of Culiacan. Thank you family and friends for all your prayers on her behalf and also Emily's.
