Family and Friends:

Well this coming week, we have a baptism planned for Alma. Please keep her and her family in your prayers. Especially her dad, so that he will quit drinking and come to church again. We have begun teaching a man named Carlos, who was a drug addict about a week ago, but he lost everything (wife left him with hes kid, all his possessions he sold for drugs...etc.) and decided to clean up his life. He quit drugs, all of them, and came to church with his mom yesterday, where he introduced himself to us. We are trying to help him out the best we can. He is really humble right now, and could use your prayers. Primarily so he doesn't do drugs again.

The ward is cool. Elder Schultz and I bought a cake for the Relief Society (the women in the ward) and gave it to them a couple weeks ago. They adore us now (it's amazing what a little sugar does...), and love taking care of their guerritos (little white missionaries). We have a lady named Jenny who lives above our apartment and always drops by with a little bit of dinner for us. Our bishop is active in this ward, and is a really great guy, and after three weeks of searching, we finally found our ward mission leader. We have yet to meet him, but his mom is really cool, and always feeds us wonderfully.

Being a trainer is an interesting experience. We have had some cool experiences, and we are meeting some cool people. Transfers are today, and he (Elder Schultz) was really glad neither of us got transferred because, in his words, "We are finally getting this thing off the ground!" It has been really cool, seeing where I came from, not being able to speak a word of Spanish to now, where I am the one who has to speak it. It is cool and it is fun teaching my companion Spanish.

I love you all and hope you are well.
