"...I know this doesn't happen because of me or my companion, but because God is helping us out".

Hola mi familia y mis amigos!

Todo tranqui aqui en romero. The work is going well. We have been having a good time down here. This sunday Norma and Ian are going to get baptized. They already had their baptisimal interview and everything. It has been such a blessing to have been able to find and teach them. They are examples to me. They are so ready to believe. Our only stuggle with Norma was that she didnt want to bother asking God if this was His church because she already believed it was and didnt want to bother Him. We taught them the word of wisdom the other day (the commandment from God that we shouldn´t drink, smoke, use drugs, or drink coffee or tea) and the next day she had donated all of her tea to her job. How awesome is that?

As we have been watching the conversion process in them we have also been able to see other people make changes in their lives as well! We have 5 other people committed to be baptized and a bunch of new people that we are going to begin teaching this next week. It has been awesome to see the growth of this area. I love being able to be a part of it. I kow that this doesn´t happen because of me or my companion, but because God is helping us out. 

Well the 19th was one of the hottest days i had had all summer, and the 21st was one of the first times i have been cold since i left La Costa. The 21st fall started and it feels like it jumped from summer to winter in a heart beat. It made me get sick. i was super congested and i didnt have any decongestant medicine so I had the idea to eat a super hot pepper to loosen everything up. It worked but it killed me in the process. I think my mom will put up the pics. at least it worked though haha.

spiritual thought for the week: Mosiah 16: 6-9

6 And now if Christ had not come into the world, speaking of things to come as though they had already come, there could have been no redemption.
7 And if Christ had not risen from the dead, or have broken the bands of death that the grave should have no victory, and that death should have no sting, there could have been no resurrection.
8 But there is a resurrection, therefore the grave hath no victory, and the sting of death is swallowed up in Christ.
 9 He is the light and the life of the world; yea, a light that is endless, that can never be darkened; yea, and also a life which is endless, that there can be no more death.

We are getting close to easter. Its a great time to remember the sacrafice and resurection of the Savior. Without Him we would be without hope but because of Him we can overcome all things.

Que tengan una buena semana!
