This week was pretty chill. This week we were focusing a lot on thepeople we have been teaching. Pamela is ready for the baptism, we just haveto teach a few more things. She is super excited for saturday. I dont know if you remember Alfredo and Dayana, but they went to church yesterday for the first time and they like it a lot. Someone gave a talk about FHE and they asked us after sacrament meeting when we could do one with them. They are progressing a lot in the last few weeks. They still arent sure about baptism but were helping them ot a little with that.
Honestly not much happened this week so theres not too much to talk about. But for some random reason it just decided to get really cold today and it freezing cold but thats about it.
Hope you all have a sick week, sorry for the super boring letter but im kind of out of idea for this whole letter thing.

Theres a lot more to talk about this week than last week tis this letter will be a little more exciting. First off Pamelas baptism was pretty sweet and it was super spirtitual. Her dad wasnt going to go again but decided at the last second that he wanted to go, but as he was leaving work to go to the church, his car broke down and sadly he could not make. It was pretty sad but Pamela gave a super good testimony afterwords and she started to cry because she was so happy. It was pretty amazing.
That was something that i was thinking this week is how much this family has changed and how much happier they have been in these few months, and i was reading in Alma this week and i realized a lot of important things and promises that the Lord has fulfilled for me. In my patriarchal blessing its says "You will be instrumental in teaching the principles of the Gospel to many people...and will enjoy greatly seeing the light of the Gospel come into their lives." And in Alma 29, Ammon explains how happy and joyfull he was for the same thing
9 I know that which the Lord hath commanded me, and I glory in it. I do not glory of myself, but I glory in that which the Lord hath commanded me; yea, and this is my glory, that perhaps I may be an instrument in the hands of God to bring some soul to repentance; and this is my joy.
10 And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent, and coming to the Lord their God, then is MY SOUL FILLED WITH JOY ; then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me.
I am truly grateful for all the things the Lord has done for me and the people i have been able to teach in my mission, i am trulky happy for them and for what the Lord has done in their lives too. The Lord really does answer our prayers and listens to us when we really need Him.
This week we also had a conference with Elder Carlos Godoy this week, the Presidente of the Area, and he talked a lot about Sacrifice and the Atonement. WHat i like most was his testimony at the end he basically said, " I am %100 willing to dedicate my life to God and his kingdom; my work, my family, EVERTHING for the Lord." It was super powerful and the Spirit was super strong in the conference.
In other news Alicia is going to get baptized the 12 and Alfredo and Dayana also accepted to get baptized the 12th so that last week is going to be dope.!!!
Thats it for this week, i love you all and hope you all have a sick week.
