Hey hey!

Keato hit his one year mark this week! 

Long time no talk! This last week was a little different with us having P-day on Wednesday, but it was still a good one!

Our area is doing really well lately, we have a lot of good, progressing investigators that should make their way to the water pretty soon. I think a few weeks ago I mentioned our investigator Julieta who lost her husband about 2 months ago. She has been doing so great lately, her whole demeaner has changed dramatically over the past month or so. The thing that she has treasured the most is prayer. When we taught her that prayed doesn't need to be decorated or memorized that it is just a conversation with God her mind was blown. She has expressed the many differences that she has seen and felt after learning about the Plan of Salvation, she has hope in her life now. We are so excited for! She should be getting baptized in the next few weeks. It is such an honor to be here to witness the Gospel change people's lives!

We had a really cool experience a few nights ago as we were heading to our last appointment. We finished up a lesson at about 7 o'clock and had to rush to the other side of our area for our last lesson.  Our are is huge so it's always fun rushing from appointment to appointment. We use taxis to get to appointments and usually they stop at around 6 o'clock. But we were pretty confident that we would get one. We got to the street where one of the routes passed by and all of these taxi drivers kept giving us the cold shoulder, for some reason they didn't want our money. We thought that was strange, but kept waiting. And then out of no where a little car taxi pulled up with out us even calling us over and let us in. Basically long story short. If we would have taken a normal taxi as planned we would have had to walk pretty far to our investigators house, because the taxi route doesnt' go all the way there, but this nice taxi man (probably the nicest I've ever met) for some reason wanted to take us right to the house. That has never happened before. Who knows if anything would have happened had we walked to our investigators house in the dark, but I am confiedent that the Lord sent that man to help us out. He was super cool, and we plan to start teaching him this week. I don't know if this story really makes sense... you had to be there... 

The mission is so full of tender mercies! I love it! I hope that you all have an awesome week! Thanks for the love and support!
