Mathew 15:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

Such a great week!

On Tuesday we had a zone training. It went great. We learned a ton and we also had our interviews with our mission president. It was a great day. It is always super nice to talk with other people in English haha.

On Wednesday and Thursday it was super cold! Like really really cold!!!!!
The humidity is just so awful. It makes it so whatever you do, you just can't get warm. I had like 6 layers on the whole day but it didn't help at all haha. And it just really stinks because it went straight from being super hot to super cold. Its a struggle but we are hanging in there. 

The rest of the week was pretty normal. Nothing too crazy happened.

But on Saturday AGUSTIN GOT BAPTIZED!!!!! It went so great! So many people came and everyone had a great time. He was so happy and excited the whole day. He is such a cool kid. My companion and I are going to miss him so much. It has been such a blessing to be apart of his conversion. We are so excited for all the great things he is going to do in the future!

Life is great, the church is true, and there is no greater joy or satisfaction than sharing the gospel.

I hope everyone has a great week!

It was a pretty awesome week!

First off I just want to say that every week it is getting harder to write these haha. I am going to keep doing my best but everything is just kinda normal now. The weeks just goes by so fast and its all a blur. It´s a struggle. 

On Tuesday we had divisions! I left my area and went to another area in our district. It was a pretty great day! We taught several great lessons but the best part was I got to spend the night in their apartment!! It wasn´t nice at all but compared to what I have been living in it was like a five star hotel!!!! There shower actually got warm and had a bit of water pressure. It was a piece of heaven. I will never forget that day.

On Wendnesday night we had a family home evening with a family in our ward. The sister missionaries in our ward and my companion and I brought some investigators and it was a really great night. We had a great lesson and our investigators really enjoyed it. The highlight of the night though was the sisters´investigators... So after the lessons we were all just chatting and joking around and then all the sudden the sister missionaries started to talk about how good of a singer their invesitgator was. They convince her to show us and then all the sudden she starts singing this chorus of an Ariana Grande song! In perfect english and everything! Our mouthes all just dropped! The rest of the night though my companion and I just felt so messed up haha. It has just been a while since we had heard something so feminine and american....

On Friday we had the baptismal interview of Agustin!! He did so great and he is getting baptized this Saturday!! He is so excited and we are too! 

I hope everyone has a great week

In case anyone is wondering we only saw 7 dead dogs this week, it was a record all time low.
