For ye shall go out with joy and be led forth with peace:
the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing
and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
ISAIAH 55:12

Week 44

HOLA QUE TAL. This week has been fantastic! and I am starting to love this area as we are finding more and more people here! These first couple weeks we have been working a lot with the members and last week we met with a returned missionary in our ward who was an AP in his mission and who wanted to help us. He was great! after he helped us we had tons of ideas to find more people and i was so excited! We decided to go through the list and do every single thing and we knew that we would find if we did. Now we are a good ways through the list and we have already found a few solid investigators! We are so excited! Yesterday at the dinner we shared the message with the family and asked who they had in mind during the lesson. The mom told us a name of one of their neighbors and later the mom got up and left and the dad came and then he told us the same name seperately. We decided we better go to that house in that moment so we went right after the dinner and the young women was just getting home at that time. We taught the lesson and invited her to be baptized and she accepted a date for april 26th. Her mom is a recent convert and she says that she wants to be baptized because she has seen the change in her mom. She is super ready and prepared and she wants to come closer to God. We didn't do anything it was such a miracle! and I am so thankful for inspired members! I love the members! and I love spanish! Hermana Vergara helps me so much and I feel more confident in the language then ever before! She is a great helper and companion! Another one of our investigators came to church on sunday! He is old and can't hear very well. During the sacrament he asked me very loud in english "what is the bread for?" and you have to yell to talk to him. he also asked during a song really loud in english, "you can read in spanish??" it was very funny. He speaks both english and spanish but he says he prefers church in spanish. He told us he likes church and is going to come every week. We keep meeting great people who are ready to hear the gospel and there is not enough time in the day to teach them all! We are super busy. that is how i like it but it sure is a vida loca. You should read Doctrine and Covenants 19: 15-20. I know that the atonement of Christ is personal. In order to experience it, we must have courage. Once we have repented and are baptized there is no greater joy then to know that we are made clean through our savior and that we can make it back to our Father. 
Les Quiero a Todos!
