 This week was a rough one, but it was awesome too. So last week we went with Blanca who was progressing so awesomely and she lost a ton of her desire to learn(the family is saying things about the church), so she didn't go to church and we were upset. But the Friday before, we invited a nonmember daughter of a member to church and she went, her name is Reyna. She has received all the missionary lessons but never really wanted to get baptized, but she went to church. So after the sacrament we took her to the baptismal font and challenged her to be baptized for the following Saturday. The spirit testified and she accepted! We went with her everyday to prepare her for her baptism, and she was baptised Saturday. It was a cool experience but my companion and I were wondering what made the difference between us and the other million missionaries that have visited her?? At church, just about an hour after her confirmation, she was helping us challenge another investigator to be baptized and sharing her testimony. She said that we "went and taught her why." All she needed was to hear the doctrine in its clarity. We are preparing the Alderete family to be baptized the 11th of August and they are pretty excited! We are praying alot for them! This week we are praying alot for Luis. We hope that he gets baptized this Saturday. His mom seems alot more peaceful about things. Today I got to play with dolphins and sea lions and seals and giant parrots. It was cool! A member is a dolphin doctor and he hooked us up. Elder Esquivel and I are going to Guadalajara tonight again to another council, so it looks like I get to sleep on a bus again! woooo! WEll I LOVE you all! Thanks for all your support! I know the church is true and that MIRACLES HAPPEN EVERYDAY!!!!! take care of my bros!!!!
