Hola! I cannot believe this is the last letter I will write as a full time missionary. I want to give you this testimony. I am sure that God lives. He is big and he is very close. We are his children. We are all so different but he loves us all the same. Jesus Christ is the son of God. He is perfect. He is the savior of the world. He has saved me and he has healed me. I know the power of the atonement is real. I know because I have felt it. I am strong because of my savior. He has given me strength and power to overcome my temptations. He has given me peace when I have felt so bad and he has given me love when I have felt alone. The scriptures are the word of God. Through those words God talks to us. They bring us to repentance. They bring us to salvation and they guide us. God has given us a prophet today, Thomas S. Monson, God still speaks to us and this is the only safety that we have now is to follow and obey the prophets. I know that the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the kingdom of God on the earth. Nothing has brought me more happiness and joy in my life than the gospel of Jesus Christ. I love to be a missionary. To be a missionary is something so special to have this power and authority and to represent Jesus Christ for such a short time. God loves us.
I testify in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Hola Buenas Dias!
Great news is that our golden investigators were going to move away but now they are staying in our area and we are so excited to teach them! They are so eager to learn and accepted a baptismal date on the first lesson! Yesterday we gave them book of Mormons and they all started looking through it and reading it before we even left or finished the lesson! They have been prepared by God. Their problem is that they are all living together and they are all around 25 years old and they aren't married. We had a pretty intense lesson and taught the law of chastity and committed them to live the law. The girl friend yuliana is super ready to be baptized and says that she will start living the law but her boyfriend is unsure and doesn't know if he will be able to but if the girlfriend is on board then hopefully it won't be a problem for him either! We are so excited for them! They are so fun to teach and they have great questions! I love being a missionary!

Every day is passing so fast we are so busy!
The lord has been blessing us! we found 5 new investigators and two of them accepted a baptismal date the first lesson! Yuliana is 25 and she is so prepared to be baptized. Her mom is going to church and has been going but she said she was never interested until right now when everything changed and in the middle of the lessons their friends in the other room came in and came to sit in and listen! It was such a great night!
It is so satisfying to be a missionary. I love my mission. I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. I love my brothers and sisters.
La luz siempre va a superar la obscuridad,
