aahhh.. Very Good

Hello everybody! I mean Hola :)

So unlike other places, (like in California,) its actually not warm here yet, so I'm happy. Today, its even a nice windy day, which will make our game of dogeball/rugby/soccer with our zone nice and cool.

The most awesome experience this week was just this last Saturday. Last Saturday(something got left out here. Apparently they met a woman), we talked to her, and she said we could come back in week. Usually when we get told we can come back in a week, it means they're not gonig to be there, but she was. We taught a good lesson, with the help of the Spirit, and she agreed to offer the closing prayer. During the prayer, she started crying. Like I said, it as awesome, (not the fact that she was crying, but that she felt the Spirit.) She told us that she had never really prayed before, so it was a really good first experience. We hope that she continues to pray this week. She also told us about how she a single mother with 2 daughters, that she has to work all week and clean the house and take care if her daughters, and doesn't really have time for anything else. A lot of Latinos are in the same situation, struggling to earn enough to support their families even though the work all the time. I'm grateful to know that we have a purpose in life, that God does have a plan for us. I know that this woman felt God's love for her as she prayed, and I'm grateful to be able to help others feel His love.

Second awesome thing; in Cumorah branch (my first area), there was a baptism. Oswaldo, the one baptized, had been married to his wife who was an active member for 6 years. He never went to church, never participated in chruch activities or anything. Missionaries had been working on and off with him for years. He finally said that he knew that the chruch was true, and that he wanted to get baptized. That was an awesome experience to see him baptized and see members in that branch again.

Ever since Elder Dudley got here, we've started teaching a lot more people, which is also great. :)

Thanks everybody!
Que pasen un buen semana
