Hola! Well this week was great. We worked hard and we received blessings. We are preparing 4 people to get baptized next week! Thanks for your prayers for Hma Sagrario and Arturo. They went to church again yesterday and loved it. They are both set on getting baptized this week. We will be praying alot that there isn't any problems with them getting married. Hermana Sagrario told us that she always told herself that she would never get married but when she learned about all the blessings of the Law of Chastity, she and Arturo gladly accepted to get married this week! I am very gratefull for the opportunity to teach them. Also 2 kids of a less active hermana who is reactivating in the church, Jorge and Perla, want to get baptized! They are almost ready and they love the church alot! Arturo, the husband of Paula didn't make it to church Sunday and we were really sad. He was going to get baptized this week, but we will have to give him another week more to prepare himself. 
Well we went to the film site of PREDATOR!!! It was kinda cool - walking the ground that was walked on by Arnold like 20 years ago, and the lamanites like 2000 years ago. The place is called Eden and it is almost exactly how I imagine the Garden of Eden. I feel bad because the pictures don't show justice of how beautiful it was. Well I love you all! Thanks for all your prayers!!!!!

I love it here!

This week was good and we learned alot. Elder Esquviel and I are working alot with the less actives and we are getting some awesome referrals. A young family went to church with us yesterday for the first time. Hermana Sagrario( sagy for short) and Arturo and they are pretty cool. Hermana Sagy told us that she saw us like 2 weeks ago and had the impression to talk with us but felt embarrassed so she didn't. But when her member-friend invited her to listen, she gladly accepted. She and her husband accepted to be baptized the 1st of September, but they need to get married first. I love this place. I love being a missionary. I love My Father in heaven. oh and I love you all!

 Well it looks like Elder Esquivel and I will be having our 3rd change
together! I haven't had a companion for that long ever in my mission. But Iam pretty happy it is Elder Esquviel. We are good buddies. This week was atough one. We are having some problems finding new investigators. Acompanionship just got taken out of our ward, so now our area has doubled insize. It is one of the biggest, if not the biggest area in the mission. ButElder Esquviel and I are excited. We are praying and working really hard tohelp strengthen our ward. We are preparing the Wife of Jose Eduardo to getbaptized this week. She bore us her testimony the other day. She said shewas working and a few "preachers" came by and saw her Book of Mormon andstarted saying a whole bunch of anti-mormon stuff. She simply responded tothem that the Church has helped her a ton to have a better family and shehas seen huge changes in her husband thanks to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.They couldn't say anything against her testimony. We were really happy tohear that experience from her. I am very thankful for the Church and Iknow that I have been made a better person thanks to being obedient to thecommandments. My companion and I were attacked a lot last week by people whodidn't want to accept the restored gospel. But we just do what Helaman andhis brethren did and "baptize unto repentance all men whosoever wouldhearken unto their words." alma 48:19.Well we are sure praying that more people will start hearkening untoour words. We know they will come. Well I love you all! Thanks for all ofyour love and support.
