This week was good. Pedro and Sofia are getting baptized this Saturday! We are very excited for them and are praying every day that it will be a good experience for them. Pedro is learning a lot and loves church. Sofia received her answer and is strengthening her testimony everyday! I love seeing the Holy Ghost work within people. I love being a missionary! We need to find some people, it is a huuuuuuge problem. We are going to try some new ways of finding.

Well thanks for your prayers! They, as well as ours,were answered! Sofia and Pedro were baptized! It was a great experience! It was Elder Bentalls first baptism and he loved it. The service went great! The young women did a musical number for Sofia and Pedro. Pedro wanted the first counselor to baptize him. It was his first baptism as well. We are having a lot of success working close to the bishopric. They will be life long buddies for sure. We are still looking very hard to find people, but the Lord blessed us this week by leading us to 2 families that want to listen to the restored gospel- The Tovares family and the Prado family. We felt something special in each one of the lessons we had with them. I am so thankful for the opportunity we have to teach them.  We are still on the hunt and we want to make the most of our time. I love you all!
