September 5th, 2016

Hola everybody,

This week was pretty chill. It got super cold here again which is good because after this it will just be super hot again for 6 months. It was a solid week with the visits we had. We visited Omar and the Flia Campero. We are really just reading the Book of Mormon with them so they can gain a testimony of it. Omar told us that his Mom is coming to visit him this week so we are going to try and talk with her to see what the problem haha. Hes helped too with a couple visits this week so he doesn't get to lost.

We also taught the Flia Salazar again. We talked with the dad finally and we taught them the restoration. He seemed to like and was excited for us to come back. This week we also started teaching a new family. Its Freddy, the dad, his wife, Marisol, and there son Alex. They are super cool. They don't much in terms of money and his wife is about to have another kid. We had contacted him about 2 or 3 months ago but didn't really want anything, but the ward here put together a little package for them with some food and clothes so they opened up a little bit. Yesterday we taught them about the Restoration to and he had some doubts about Joseph Smith. We explained to him the Book of Mormon and "the other sheep" and he said he liked it a lot. He told that we could go by whenever we wanted too to visit him. 

For all that it was a really good week here. Sadly it could be my last week in this area but i'm glad i got to teach them.

I realized that i haven't really ever put my testimony in any of my letters, and i was thinking this week about how much i've learned about the Gospel in this first year that i've been out. I've really learned to love everything about it. I've been able to recognize all the blessing that its brought in my life and above i've learned to know without a doubt that this is the true church. I've never been so sure of that in my whole life and i've been able to see how much it can change the life of the people i teach. I am extremely grateful for the knowledge i have of this Gospel and for everything i've learned as a missionary.

Love Elder Crisp
I didnt take any pictures this week either, sorry.
