A Bunch of Miracles

Hola Hola! 

The highlight of this week was the baptism of Marisol and Jensi. Those two girls are the best! We have been trying to activate their parents for a while and now we had the privilege of seeing them be baptized. Their brother, Junior, also came to their baptism and to church. He now has a date to be baptized as well! I love this family! 

This week was a very good week for us. It was our Ward Conference. We had a bunch of activities all week to get people excited about coming to church. We had a talent show, an activity with all the youth and a giant visit where a bunch of members came and did divisiones with us. It was great to see the ward working together so hard as missionaries! At the end of the week our attendance went up by about fifty people! The church was the fullest I've ever seen it on a Sunday! Only our temple trip beats it!

We really saw a bunch of miracles this week. We had a new family move in from Lemon, my old area, and they had been going to church over there. They are just on the verge of being baptized too! Another thing, we have been invited to go and teach at an orphanage! The director is a member of the church and there are some kids there that want to listen to us. They are going to come to church, and because of their hard lives maybe their hearts have been prepared for the message we have to share.

It is getting SOOO HOT down here again! We are heading into the hottest part of the year right now. I get sunburnt every single day. You'd think my body would adapt already. But nope, I just sweat and burn and peel and do it again every day. But it is part of the sacrifice. Let's just say we do almost all of our planning, studying, phone calls, eating, sleeping, just about everything in this tiny room where there is a little air conditioning unit that keeps the temperature bearable. Jaja!

It sounds like things are going good back at home! Spring sports starting up! This is the best time of the year for sports!!! Keep me updated! 
Love you all!

P.S. A family trip to the Sacred Grove would be fantastic! I would love that!

We got to go to this little pueblo called Yusguare. It's sweet there!

 Plus a giant watermelon we found!
