Week 14

hola familia
Dont have a whol lot of time to write this week. monday for pday we got to leave the zone to go shopping. we went to this market place called mayoreo where the sella bunch of fake rolex and jerseys and all that fun stuff. it was pretty cool to see. reminded me of when we went to he place with brett in mexico city. on wednesday we had a meeting for all the newbies in the mission. it was awesome to see all the missionaries that i came in with me. it was fun to share stories and see some famliar faces. also i had an interview with president flores, he says i need to be ready to train at the end of this next transfer...its not a sure thing that i will be training but i guess it is likely. also later that we were teachin one of our families that has a bptismal date. they put up their daughter for adoption a long time ago and just recently they got her informtation. she lives in hawaii and doesnt speak any spanish so they had a hard timecommunicating. so that night they had me translate over the phone between them. it was an awesome experience. the daughter and the mom were both crying...i was just glad that i was able to understand enough of the language to translate. on saturday we had a baptism of la familia Andino. it was an awesome experience. this was the first baptism of a family that i found, taught, and baptized. im super grateful that i have been able to see this much success in my first area, 8 bapisms in my first 6 weeks.
We are putting more baptismal dates tonight, and are hoping to have a total of 9 baptisms this month. Its really amazing to see how the gospel changes lives. Today isnt going to be that exciting, we just have to clean the house really good for the new group ofmissionaries coming in. it is going to be nice to not be in the newbie group anymore
hey well i love you all so much! talk to you soon
