Dear Family and Friends:
Well this week could have gone a bit better, but we had 5 investigators in church! Talk about blessings! We are planning the baptism of Alma for this week, as it did not go through last week. Hopefully she will take that exciting step in her life! We had two new investigators at church this week, Ana and her son Brian. They loved the church and are really excited about learning. I hope they keep that flame! This week we have some good lessons planned, and are hoping to have lots of people in church next Sunday.
My companion, Elder Schultz and I are doing good together. He is a great missionary and will be an even greater one than I. He is learning Spanish at a quick rate, and is happy doing the work.
I went out and bought a cactus today, as a year present for myself. It's cool. Now I feel like I'm in Mexico. It only cost me five pesos, about forty cents USD. I like it.
It has been hot down here lately, but we are getting ready to have the "wet season" here in a few weeks. It is supposed to rain everyday. Yee haw!! That will be nice after all this heat. Yes sir.
I love you all and hope you are well!
