My birthday was great our mission leader planned a meeting but really it was a surprise breakfast for me!

That was the 3rd cake then we had one more at lunch with Hermana Elizondo! it was a great day sure have some great people here taking care of me!
well... lets start with this fine p day morning! a scary scary man tried to kiss me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This week has been a great one! we finally had our baptism with Miguel! he was sooo ready and so happy when he was about to take this first step! He actually met one of our new investigators that is progressing very quickly and very well and was teaching him all about everything he wants to help us teach him and he is really excited to be confirmedand work to receive the priesthood! It was an amazing experience to really see him change and grow to love the gospel as he molded his life to fit the standards!
More birthday fun!!We are working hard and moving along this week was really rough for Rocio and Hugo! He has just lost his steam to be baptized! after a week and a half of not being here and us not being able to see him he is really struggling to get back into things! He has lost the feeling and is not reading or praying like he was before. We invited him to have his baptism this week and told them we would work with them but it really did not work out they are very stuck on the fact that they are too busy for us right now and Rocio his wife thinks that we need to let him come around on his own! So.... we are going to be working on jut seeing them in general this week to see if we can get the spirit back in their home and get rid of some contention! This is going to call for some patience of us all but it is really going to be okay he will come around! Just lots of pray on our part and we are going to know exactly what to do!We have three great investigators that are progressing amazingly! Claudia Emanuel and Mariana! Emanuel read The Book of Mormon and principals in a matter of a week! BOM 3 days and princpals 2!!!!! Claudia! is sure this is what she needs. She is at all activities and church! She is applying everything!she was rushed to the hospital because her baby wanted to come early! But she prayed and everything came out well! She then asked us if we could bring someone to give her a blessing! She really is so prepared by the Lord and between her little girl and baby on the way she won't be able to leave the straight and narrow! Mariana! She is moving along great and wants more than anything to change her family situation at home! She is becoming a great example for her family to the point that her son is beginning to change and listen as well! When in the first lesson he wanted to run us away!We have a goal this week, we are going to find these other people that are waiting for us! We know the Lord is preparing them and they are out there! We are going to continue to work together united obedient and strong with nothing but the spirit on our side! I am so thankful for my amazing companion! she is a powerhouse! What a testimony she has and a story that can change the world! She is growing and changing so much! I cannot believe we have one change together! So ready to keep working together in this change to come! we never stop learning or growing!I am so excited for this new cambio! hope they don't surprise us with a change..... love you all hope you have a great week! oh and I had a good birthday! thanks everyone for the wishes!
