Good Windows

Holaaaaaaaa! What a great weeeeek! This week was fantástico!   ha ha ha ha Wow, check out my  Spanish! But it really was great. Me and my comp are just in beast mode right now--just loving the mission. We are in complete flow, kinda like Stockton and Malone. Just loving it!

We have changes this Wednesday and I'm almost positive that I'm leaving because I have been in Parte Alta for 6 months! I'm a little sad that these are probably my last couple of days here. I can't tell you guys enough how much this place has changed my life . . . and my legs. Ha ha They are ripped now! No, but really, I love everyone here. These people are like my family. Like I was born here ha ha! I'm going to miss these guys, but it was a great way to end my service here in the Parte Alta with two more amazing baptisms! 

This past Sunday we had the baptisms of Misol and Alan! It was such a beautiful service and the spirit was really strong. its a cute story with Alan! He is 9 years old and turns out that he was really afraid of the water, so he wanted to be baptized, but he was scared. Before the baptism he prayed that he wouldn't have fear to enter the water. It was so cute. Then when it came time to enter in the font I'm pretty sure he wanted to go swimming, that's how excited he was! He didn't have any fear! He is so cute. He is like my little bro!

Also with Misol, it was amazing! It was such blessing to able to teach her, but more just to become such good friends! It was really cool, after she got baptized, she bore her testimony and said that when she woke up she was feeling a little  conflicted about her baptism and wasn't sure if it was what she should do. She said that she prayed and asked God if this was the path that she should take in her life and she she said when she came to church that day she received an answer in one of the sacrament talks. She said she knew it was an answer from God! Such a blessing and a miracle! 

We went over to her house after to talk with her and she went on to thank us for changing her life. I told her that we didn't do anything, but that it was the work of God. I said we are like the window that he passes through and she said " ustedes son buenas ventanas entonces" which means you guys are good windows then. ha ha! Then she asked when she could go on a mission. SHE WANTS TO GO ON A MISSION! Soo cool! I'm way grateful for the mission!

Also there was a spider in our house that almost ate me this week!

Wyatt, dude--2 Nephi???? So proud dude. That's big time. Keep it up man because I know you'll keep getting more blessings. I really needed a letter like that man. I know that God inspired you to write me that cause it was exactly what I needed! Thanks Wyatt! I keep thinking about you and what Quincy said about how you surprised him and how you never gave up and never backed down! That's what I'm talking about. I loved your letter because I missed a lot of opportunities that I should have taken to spend more time with the family. In the mission I've been so grateful for you guys and I think I took that for granted a little when I was at home! I'm so glad that you have learned that now! Enjoy the time you have with Garrett and mom and dad! I'm excited to get back and spend more time together.

Garrett, thanks for your letter too, bro. I heard that Quincy might be leaving, dude! That's nuts man. But honestly what's most important for you right now is to just get to work! You gotta hit it hard like you have before! It doesn't matter who the coach is. Get to work and have fun, right?

But ya, it was a great week! I love the mission! 

Love you guys. Have a great week!
