3 Months!

Hola Familia!

Well I had another baptism! So that makes 3 in the past 3 weeks, and we have 2 next weekend hahaha! It's great! Elder Zambrano told me that this is the most baptisms he's ever had in such a short amount of time, so that made me feel good about my work. It's so hot here now, and I miss the rain. I think I would even take some Cache Valley weather over this, oh well. Also, today I met my abuelo in the mish, and he was so cool! This week I will have been out 3 months! I can't believe how fast it is going by. I love my area and the members are awesome! We get fed so much, but I am still loosing weight haha. Probably from all that walking.

If you haven't noticed in my pictures, there are seriously more dogs than people here, and sometimes they join in packs and are mean! I've gotten to be really good at aiming with rocks. Haha, almost all of the dogs here are scared of me now!

Well after these next 3 baptisms, we won't have any more investigators. So I have been trying hard to just talk with everyone. It's great because I can practice my spanish, and share the gospel! But it's just cool how the Lord places people in your path who are ready for the gospel. All we have to do is act on it and work hard. But anyways, I was talking to this lady while we were waiting for a bus, and she was nice. I have the best casual way to bring up the gospel, because some people think us missionaries are weird. But anyways, she told me where she lived and I told her we would come visit her. The next day we went out looking for her house and couldn't find it. I was sad because she was really nice, but then the day after that we were walking and we heard a voice yelling ELDERS and we look back and it was her!! She told us that her brother died yesterday and that she knows we can help her. That definitely strengthened my testimony of the work of the Lord! Hopefully, as we share the gospel with her she can find peace. We have an appointment with her tomorrow!

General Conference was amazing! And us gringos got to watch all of it, but priesthood session in english! I really liked President Eryings talk Sunday morning, about the lady whose grandson was in jail and that she got a feeling that God put her with him because he knew that she would love him no matter what. That definitely made me think of those I have been in contact with. I also really liked President Monson's talk about the guy who couldn't see and hear, but the best talk was that guy from Africa!! He had the coolest accent and everything! haha

I can't believe that had to happen to chuckie, I received a lot of trash talking today from the BYU fans, haha, oh well! I'm glad all is well!!! Les amo!!!
