the big news is today at 7 our investigator is going to enter into the waters of baptism. (its her birthday so that is why we are doing it on a monday) we are super excited for her. she has made a lot of progress and this last week we were running around trying to finish everything for her. she is such an amazing women with such a good story. we are just hoping that the hot water works here because it is freezing cold here. the good news is her boyfriend is going to do the baptism so we don’t have to get wet.
things are going better here in lontue. we didn’t really teach a whole lot this week but this week we have a lot of potential to commit people to baptism. we have plans to invite about 5 people this week so we will see how that goes.
my class went really well this week. i talked about the role of the book of mormon in our lives as missionaries. this week i have plans to talk about the best ways to teach families. it is something that president wants us to talk about. we will see how it goes.

i have said this once and ill say it again. it is sooooo hard to understand people that are from the campo that don’t have teeth. it is a pretty bad problem. sometimes we will be talking to some old guy in the street and as he is talking i’m thinking to myself.... wow i only understand about 60% of what this guy is saying. after i’ll voice that to my comp who is from mexico and he will say... ohh yeah don’t worry i only understood about 70% of that.
speaking of mexico, chile played mexico in soccer. mexico was supposed to kill chile so my comp talked soooooo much trash. well come to find out that chile won 7-0. my comp almost died from all of the jokes he got. it was pretty funny.
i know that this church is true and that Jesus is our Savior. i am grateful for the Atonement and the hope that we get from that. i love being a representative of Jesus Christ.
thank you all.
