(Some pictures from this week!!! The Thevenin family made us SANCOCHO!!! There was about 10 lbs of rice in the Sancocho...we could not walk afterwards!!!)
It was great to see Eggy in the photos!!! He looks great! It was also really nice to see my other family all together! WE HAVE A BAPTISM THIS WEEK!!! WOW WHAT A MIRACLE!! We have a young woman named LUZ we are teaching. She went to EFY and has come to church like 12 times but her parents wouldn't let her get baptized... Me and Elder Gomez did a fast almost 2 months ago for her. As we left the Internet center last Monday I got a call saying that her parents had said YES! She had asked so many times but one day as she was reading the Book of Mormon she heard the Spirit say to ask her parents NOW. She did as she felt and her faith worked a miracle. This young lady walks 15 minutes to a main road in the country where she lives and then hops a "Pick up truck taxi" for 30 minutes just to come to church... She is already in the book of Alma chapter 17! I was studying the scriptures this morning and came across one I love in the book of Joshua... It says:
9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.
Miracles still happen people!!!! If they don't it's just because our faith isn't strong enough and we have to do more to strengthen it. Love you all!!

Hey pops... Well it has been an emotional roller coaster of a week... Lots of little problems here and there but all is well. WE WALKED SO FAR the other day... We literally went over and hour Power walking to an investigators house IN THE MIDDLE OF NOWHERE. We even had to cross a MAJOR HIGHWAY to get there! LOL BUT the lesson was incredible. It is a family of 8... We sat all the kids down and talked about Prophets. The Spirit was INCREDIBLE. The kids were so smart!!! They knew all the answers BEFORE their parents. Saul who is the dad LEFT his work he was doing at the moment and told the guy he wasn't going to do the job because he had to be somewhere more important... He then told us he is saving up for a car so that he can bring his entire family to church so that they can all be baptized... Then this humble family who lives in a wood house even FED US. They will be amazing members one day. Saul says the gospel has given him hope to have his family again. He and his wife divorced but they are now speaking of marriage BY LAW (that never happens here)... I have been praying for Eggy. I know the Spirit will guide you on your decisions for Sunday School, You're my dad you've always put a great example of choosing the Right. In Priesthood we had a strong lesson on families and the role of Fathers and once again I found my self full of gratitude for you and for mom. I love you pops. I hope your week is filled with Missionary opportunities.
