Hola everyone! This week was a good one! We had a lot of success, and we are feeling good about life. We also went bowling and it was a blast. I came in first with a 103. It was rough day, but I stuck it out in the end with a strike! It was a clutch moment and I came through. This week was great because we worked hard with our investigators and they went to church finally! Also Fausto Tixi, Katy Frutos, Carmen and Piedad Briones are all set to go for baptism this Saturday, so we are super excited for this. They passed the interviews without any problem and we are beyond excited for this Saturday. We have been blessed immensely with these four investigators. These four investigators literally have not failed to complete even one commitment. They are the investigators that all the missionaries are dreaming of haha. They were so awesome and I'm so excited for this Saturday. This week it rained like crazy. The weather hear hates missionaries too. I wore my raincoat all day Tuesday until like 7:30 and it didn't rain. I left it in the house becasue I didn't think it would rain. Well not 5 minutes after we left, it just flat poured on us. I was so stinckin mad. I wore that big jacket the whole time for nothing, and when I left it, the rain just about killed me. It's been like that the whole week. I'm hoping for better weather this week. Wow I cant believe I completed 10 months this week. The time just doesn't slow down. I can't believe I'm already so close to saying I'm halfway done. All my friends are going home and I'm just getting older in the mission. It's crazy how fast it goes by. Well I want you guys to hear about a contact we had two days ago. We contacted Jesus Maria and Angel in the street on Friday and instead of letting us present ourselves and what we do, Jesus began to tell us how seahorse's can reproduce by themselves and explained to us how it is possible. Needless to say that was the wierdest contact I have had on my whole mission. But if anyone would like to know more about the seahorse and how it reproduces by itself. I'm your guy! Well just to end I read a cool scripture today in Doctrine and Covenants 78:19 And he who receiveth all things with thankfulness shall be made glorious; and the things of this earth shall be added unto him, even an hundred fold, yea, more. I loved that scripture, it inspired me to accept even the hard times and be grateful for everything so that I can learn and gain even more from these experiences. The mission has been hard, but it will be worth it in the end if I can really learn to do this well. I love you guys, I'lll talk to you next week.
