Oh esta, todo bien!!

Hello family and friends! 

Everything just seems to be going our way right now.  Haha after many months of struggles and challenges the Lord seems to be blessing us like crazy.  My companion and I are getting along really well, my Spanish continues to improve each day, and we have been finding and teaching a lot of new people.

This Saturday we are hoping to babtize a lady named Lorenza and her children.  They are very receptive and love having us come over.  Their story of conversion is kind of a miracle because one day they just showed up to church and wanted to be babtized!  I especially admire Vicente, the 14 year old son of Lorenza.  For the past month he has come to every mutual and to every single church activity.  Lorenza has a little girl who has some mental problems, so she cant always come to the activities but the good thing is that her testimony is very strong.

This week we passed by with some members who are really poor.  Now, I have been in Guatemala for a year and have seen a lot of poverty but this visit we made really impacted me.  The little kids ran around without shoes and really worn clothing.  No clean water and literally no food in the whole house.  It really hit me just how much, just how many blessings we have back home.  We are truly blessed and we need to thank the Lord for our blessings.

The coming week should be really good!  Im excited to keep learning, growing, and to help others.  Missionary work is very difficult but the difficulty makes it more rewarding.  I love growing, sharing, and helping others come unto Christ.  Adios!
