Hola Familia
This week has been pretty great. 
So we have been contacting a lot lately, and on sunday a couple of the people that we contacted came to church which was really a surprise. We went and taught them. The one was a guy that many people think is crazy, but when we taught him we found out that he is a bit weird but he understood what we taught him, and asked good questions. The others were a bunch of teenage boys that we just said hello to on saturday night and told them to go to church so they did. We ended finding where they live during the week and shared with them. One of them is really interested he said he wanted to be like us and said that he was going to go to church again on sunday. We were pretty exctied about that. He even came with us to another lesson to one of his friends.
While we were walking in the early afternoon, when it is really hot we were walking up a big hill with the sun beating in our faces. We passed a couple that were cleaning then house. So it looked like they were really busy and we had a couple of people to visit that lived pretty far away. We walked a couple more steps when we both looked at each other and felt like we needed to contact them. So we walked back. He had shared with missionaries a long time ago. His mother had just died three months ago and it has been really hard for him. We taught about the plan of Salvation and he was really interested. At the end of the lesson we asked him if he would say the pray. The only prayer he knew what ¨our Father¨. So we taught him how to pray and he said the pray. While he was praying he started to cry and told us that he felf so much better having talked to us, and asked if we could come back again to his house. So we put another appointment and left. It was pretty amazing that we both felt like we should talk to him, and just to see the results.
While we were cantacting one morning we found a lady that seemed really interested so we set an appointment when her husband would be home. We went to the appointment and found out that he was baptised when he was 14 and was now going to a christian church. We started to share with him and he started to tell us why the church wasn´t true because it is formed on ProphteS not just one, then started naming scriptures where there were more then one prophet in the land. We told him that the apostols are also prophets seers and revalators. He wasn´t very convinced and kept up the arguement. A scripture came to mind in Alma 4:19 So I bore my testimony about how in knew that the church was true I explained how I felt and that I knew without a shadow of a doubt that this is the true church. The guy changed he began to think and listen to us. It turned out that we gave him a Book of Mormon. He wouldn´t put another appointment with us because he work isn´t set so he is alway in and out of the house so he doen´t know if he would be home.
We have a family that is really progressing. We talked about marriage and about them getting married. They told us that they have wanted to get married for a while and have been thinking about it. So we were pretty excited about that we have an appointment tonight to go and see them. They told us that they would have a date picked out when we come tonight, we just hope that it is in this transfer so that we can both see it, even if it isn´t it is really exciting.
I am glad that you guys had so much fun camping and that you guys are able to go and stay a couple more days this week. It really is a pretty special place. It sounds like you guys really had a fun time up there. Keep working hard in all that you do and I hope that you are enjoying the last few weeks of your summer vacation. This next school year will be a fun one! Keep up all the hard work.For the list that mom wants: I need another journal I am almost out of pages in this one. I would like some more music that you can sing to ( like Efy or quertet) stuff like that, and if you could put them in mp3 form and put as many as you can on a disk that would be great. Send me a picture of Dad on his mission. if you are going to send shorts make sure they are size 33 around the waist, 32 is a bit tight. I can´t think of anything else right now. I love you guys tons! Have a great week this week!
Con Amor
