Work + Work + Work = Love . . .

July 21, 2014

Dear Family,

It is so great to hear from you guys!!  It sounds like everything is going great back home!!  I am so happy for all of the work, all of the fun, and all of the things that you are doing!!  Keep up the great work!!

So this week was really work!!  Very normal as far as all of the work goes, but we have been trying our very best to be able to bring more people unto Christ!!  This really is the greatest work in the whole world!!  I am loving it here!!

So now I am going to move on to the investigators!!  Don´t judge me on this email because the computer is being really slow and not working very well, so there will most likely be lots of errors!!  Just have patience with me!!

So first we have Feyo Mejia. He is very old, about 68 years old, and he is progressing really well!!  He is listening to his daughter in law read him from the church, and so he is learning a ton!!  He has now been to church 4 four times now, and the first and third lessons!!  He is a very humble man, and is someone that I have really come to love and admire in the time that I have been teaching him!!  He is a great man, and he is going to be very prepared to be baptized on September 13th!!

Next we have Daisy!  She is a 65 year old woman, and she is progressing along with Feyo.  They are really good friends, so they help each other a lot!  She has the same lessons as Feyo, and she has been to the church 3 times!!  She is also going to get baptized on the 13th of september!!

Next we have Mery.  She is really cool, and she is learning lots!!  SShe sings hymns to her sons to help them sleep, and going to church lots!!  She has changed a lot in our time teaching her, and she is going to be baptized on the 13th of september as well!!

After that, we have years, and she has been to church two weeks!"!  She did something that really surprised me!!  Her family went to the beach on sunday, but she stayed to be able to go to church!"!  We are going to try to put a fecha with her this weekª!!

In Las charcas, I am just going to talk about two people, Nana and Yoahni.  They are a mother and daughter, and they are from Haiti.  Yoahni has been going to church for a really long time and now has 17 times in church!!  Also, nana now has 2 times in church, and fecha for the 13th of september, along with her daughter!! 

So today, Cisneros and I visited the beach with Kinsiño.  He is a member, and he is really cool!!  I picked up some cool shells and stuff, and just had an overall great PDAY!!  Pictures to come soon!!!

I love you all!!
Happy 24 de Julio!!
