Another awesome week! Staying super busy and working hard.

Can't believe how fast the time is going by. 
Rainy season is starting up again and we are learning that we need to carry our umbrellas everyday because you just never know when its gonna start to pour. But it doesn't ever stop us. We have gotten pretty wet this week but have also been protected and healthy :)

One of the highlights of this week was finding the Diaz family. Well they were actually a reference of a missionary who just got back from his mission the week before. His name is Valentin and he's pretty much famous because he has a Mormon message about him on You should look it up! But he's the only member in his family and got baptized when he lived in California. He came back to Mexico City before his mission and is living here now. 

He introduced us to all his family! Grandparents, cousins, siblings, nieces and nephews... the whole gang. His parents still live in Cali but has tons of family that lives in our ward. We have been working most with his sister's family. They are already progressing so well and working towards their baptism date :) It was so cool to have so many new investigatos that are truly interested. Valentin obviously really wants them to accept the gospel as well so he is a huge help. 

We had stake conference this past weekend and they changed the stake presidency! It had been the same for the past 10 years!! Elder Valenzuela came and President Anaya and his wife too and another seventy too. The conference was incredible but also kinda crazy because we had lots of investigators there to worry about. Elder Valenzuela's talk at the end was about keeping the sabbath day holy and it was really really good. Everyone enjoyed it and it was definitely good for our investigators to hear :)
Everything just seems to be falling into place so perfectly here in Moctezuma. Some days its like a roller coaster full of joys and disappointments but we are trusting in the Lord and His plan and seeing so many miracles. I love being able to work with the people here and helping them change their lives. There is nothing better than being a missionary!!

Have a good week :)
