This week was incredible!!! Wow! On Saturday I received a call from an old investigator when I was in the zone of Oeste...we talked for a minute and then I asked him to get married so that his girlfriend, Kati, could get baptized! As I invited him and he stayed silent for a second, and the spirit fought with him and then he agreed!!!! So we went to the city offices and they will be getting married here in a little bit so she can be baptized!!! It was incredible! On Monday President took the offices out to eat at a Chinese restaurant, Grandpa would have loved it! This week my companion and I worked our hearts off in our area, we have been taking in every moment and we have been finding so many new people to teach. Also, we had a meeting with the assistants from the other mission to exchange ideas on how to speed up the work and we both found some amazing ideas! But I want you all to know I love you so much and have a great week!

Week 99: "in order to come unto Christ we need to leave everything behind and if we want to follow Christ we need to give everything we have!"
This week was a really good week! I received a new companion, Elder Bulloch. He´s from St. George. A big kid that wrestled in high school. Really humble, hard working guy. I´m going to love working with him. Last Sunday we had a fireside in the zones of Oeste and Flores together! The weekend there was a lot of running around. Saturday night we were visiting all of the converts that were going to share their testimonies in the fireside and buy some last minute things before Sunday. As Sunday rolls around it became hectic! It was about 2 hours before the activity and the computer wasn´t compatible with the projector in the church so we had to rush over to a bishop´s house in order to grab his computer. As we got to the chapel we plugged everything in and got everything hooked up and ready and then the activity started. We were hoping and praying that everything would work! Heavenly Father truly blessed us that night, there wasn´t a flaw in the entire activity. It was absolutely incredible! We were also blessed with the presence of an area seventy! After the activity we started preparing for concilio (leadership counsel) with all of the zone leaders. President Smith is incredible! He taught us some amazing doctrine. He taught us about the rich prince in the bible. He taught us about the law to come unto Christ and the law to follow our Savior. He taught us in order to come unto Christ we need to leave everything behind and if we want to follow Christ we need to give everything we have! I loved it!!! So inspired! But I want to let you all know that I love you so much!
