Hola!!!! It's been a good week! Busy busy.

We have lots of good investigators right now and are working hard to make sure we are giving them all the follow up and attention that they need. 

We have seen the promise in Moroni 10:3-5 come true many times this week and my testimony of the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon has been strengthen in so many ways. Last Sunday at our Stake Conference I was talking with President Anaya about some of our investigators and his answer to each case was the Book of Mormon. My companion and I made a goal to focus more on the Book of Mormon in our teaching and make sure each of our investigators understand its purpose and power

We taught several lessons on just the Book of Mormon and are seeing the fruits of our efforts. We now have several investigators who actually read what we ask them too and are sincerely interested in knowing if the book is true. We are seeing the power flow in their lives. The Holy Ghost is testifying to them as they read and is helping them develop a true conversion. 

Rocio told us that every time she reads the Book of Mormon she feels something strange and unusual that kind of scares her because she is not used to it but it makes her want to read more. She described it as giving her the chills and making her skin swell. It's always interesting to hear people describe what it's like to feel the Spirit for the first time. 

Christian has been reading the book as well and told us that he has felt a huge difference in his life since we started visiting him as well. That he has been a lot less stressed out and feel much more tranquillo or calm I guess.

Little miss Alison is progressing well and is getting baptized this Sunday!! She is so adorable and very smart. She is 10 and gets up for church by herself. She reads what we tell her too and loves the gospel :) Her cousin and aunt are members so they will be supporting her because the rest of her family isn't quite as interested. 

We also met Rosa Maria this week. She lived with her daughter who is a member in Oakland California for 6 months and was going to church and listening the the missionaries there. She had to come back because her husband got sick and passed away. She now lives alone and was so excited to go to church yesterday and meet so many new friends. In our appointment with her on Saturday her son called and she started to tell him all about us and how excited she was. "You won't believe who I'm with right now!!.... the Mormon missionaries from the church that your sister goes too... I want you to meet them. When can you come over and meet them?" If only everyone was as excited as Rosa Maria :) She totally made our day. 

We had an incredible zone conference on the Book of Mormon as well this week :) I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God who was called to restore the gospel and translate the Book of Mormon. I'm so grateful for this book in my life. It has been a guide and comfort for me. I testify of its divine power and truthfulness. 

Sorry we have been bad about taking pictures but here are some from today :) Hope you all have a good week! 

Con amor,
