We had a pretty good week here in Mariano Acosta. It is weird here with 4 elders in the ward but we are getting a lot of work done here in Mariano Acosta. We are on the side that is a brand new area so it´s a bit hard. All our past investigators are on the side of the other area but it´s a great opprotunity to find new people to teach. These last two weeks we have been working hard to find the people to teach and we have found them through In active families, members and seeing miracles in the street. Right now we have two in active families that are coming back to church and working on their goals to go to the temple. There are people that are able to be baptized in these families and we are excited to work with them! One family has been inactive for about 14 years and we saw how happy they are now in the church. It is amazing how the gospel really does bring blessings into your life because it´s the truth. Our two investigators were baptized this last Saturady. Well after the division they are not really our investigators but Elder Millard and I taught them for a long time. Sandra was in our area but she moved a couple days before her baptism so according to the limits, it is counted for the other area.. it doesn´t matter because the baptism was amazing with 75 people in attendance to see the baptism! She said she entered scared but when she left out of the waters she felt forgiven..

It is crazy to think that, all this started from one family in our ward who wanted to give a Ensign to a neighboor that just moved in. They invited her over for Family Night and it ended up being her daughter that came that was ready to hear this message. She is now baptized and enjoying the blessings of the church!

So the week has been good. I was sick for the first two days and pretty much the whole week. I was taken care of by my family here(Flia Diaz) so I am in good hands. We are ready to work with the people we have right now to come to church and to get baptized. We have a new family that we are teaching from Uruguay, the father is a member but inactive for a long time but has a family of 6 and he wants them to come back into the church and to have the blessings of church in their lives. We are excited to work with them! Well it is off to a great week ahead. Thanks for all the prayers and support back home.

Love you guys!
