THIS WEEK WAS WONDERFUL! Ivon and her brother Luis were able to be baptized, and we were able to help Poli and his wife Leticia and their daughter Martha go to church! We were happy also when we had inspiration to go all the way out to Ixcuinquitlapilco (about an hour bus ride) where we found a family, Judith, Janet and Laura who are excited to go to church, and hopefully they will this next week!

We had a couple adventures this week, one when we came home and found a lizard on our counter. He is cool. We named him Steve. He lives outside under our boiler, but somehow broke in while we were gone. We also have a little bird that we named Buddy that sleeps by our door. I haven't taken a picture, because it's always dark when we see him, we only ever see him when we come home to sleep. We had another adventure when I had to go to the bathroom really, really bad and we were in the middle of nowhere. There was only a corn field, and so...Well the work goes on. Hopefully this week we will have some success!

I love you all!

P.S. My sister sent me a great scripture. Read it. Mosiah 7:33: But if ye will turn to the Lord with full purpose of heart, and put your trust in Him, and serve Him with all diligence of mind, if ye do this, He will, according to His own will and pleasure, deliver you out of bondage.

Last Monday, Elder Johnson sent us personal letters. Included was his testimony:

"On my mission I have learned so many things, especially how much God and our Savior Jesus Christ do for us. I love to see families blessed by the gospel, become happier and more united. I am so happy I chose to serve a mission. I know that I am involved with the most important work that has ever existed. I know that I am bringing eternal happiness to others and myself! How wonderful the Lord is! How right are His ways!"
