Hola mi familia y mis amigos!
I got to capture an eagle thanks to my ealge scout and half mexican powers.

hows it going? we have had a solid week out here in romero. its been super productive. We have a lot of perople progressing towards baptism. we have two investigators, Norma and Ian that will be getting their baptisimal interviews this week! hey are awesome. In our class on sunday we were talking about prophets and she bore her testimony about how she knew that God had sent us because when we found her she was in a depression and since she met us her life has changed. It was touching to hear her testimony. She and her son should be getting baptized the 29th.

We were going downtown to get a training about doing an open house for a church down here and we got there early. We found some guys that werent members of the church behind the church playing on the churches basketball court. my comp is from chile but he knows how to play so we went and played with them for like 15 min before the training and it was super fun and we got 4 new people to teach out of it. Its for another area but hey you got to play basketball for a good cause. It was also way fun because i havent played basketball in a ton!

Well a lot of people in our ward down here are passing through some tough times and I was thinking the other day about how I can help them. A scripture came to my mind that i was able to see in a different way.
 its in 2 nephi 25 verse 26

 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for remission of their sins.

as i was thinking i relaized that christ is the source to which we may look in everything, not only for remision from our sins. I know that it is true. through christ we can really solve any problem we have and recieve the consolation and comfort that we need. If we can take time to pause, look at or situation and look for the way we can move closer to chirst i know that we will have the strength we need to overcome our trials.

well i hope you all have a good week!
