BEST WEEK EVER!!! and Easter!

Our Easter activity! We taught how to decorate eggs!
Hola Familia!
I cant even begin to describe how amazing this week was! Miracles left and right and so much missionary work done.

First I will start with Gabi because I shared a little bit about her last week. We had a baptismal date with her but work was a problem. Sunday we prayed and fasted a ton for a way she could come to church. We meet with her on Tuesday and she tells us that she told her boss that she wanted to go to church on Sunday and so he fired her! We felt pretty bad but the Lord works in mysterious  right. Anyways she has to work until the 21st of May so she cant make the 10 but she did her own baptismal calander and said she would be baptised the 7 of June. We were totally fine with it! She is very prepared and will be baptized that day no doubt! SUPER BIG MIRACLE!

Now Veronica, Natalie, & Carla. They originally could only meet on Sunday but since it was Semana Santa she had off work and so they met with us every day! They have been taught everything now, gaining a stronger testimony each day, and already started dropping coffee. Things are looking very well for them. They have a date for the 10th of May and are rapidly progressing towards it! They are seriously so great. They came to church Sunday and everything. SUPER BIG MIRACLE!

Now Wednesday, we did studies at the church because my companion and the other zone leader had to plan a conference they have Saturday for the ward mission leaders and ward missionaries. Anyways I was doing companion study with Elder Fonseca when someone rings on the church door bell. It was a lady named Marta, her friend in Switzerland gave her the church address and so she came and found it. We had a tour of the church then a small lesson about prophets and the Book of Mormon. We had a return lesson with her on Friday and had a great Restoration Lesson. She liked it a lot and has been reading a lot too. She also came to church. We are looking to set a date with her soon. SUPER BIG MIRACLE.

I got the opportunity to go on a comp exchange with one of the Assistants this week and we had so much success! It has been really warm lately so we went to a park to find people to teach and had great success! We found 4 new investigators just in those 2 hours in the park! Great experience. SUPER BIG MIRACLE!

Tons of people are being super receptive to us lately. We got a lot of references. We have been stretching our goals and are hitting them. It's super amazing!

This has honestly been the best week of my mission so far. Huge miracles and great work being done.

Sean and Hillary... CONGRATS!!!! I freaked out when I saw that you had your baby!

Hope everyone had a great week and Easter. Love you ALL!

P.S. On Wednesday at the temple, the office workers brought our mail. I got the Easter package and the shoes. They are great! The shoes are soooo much better than my old ones and the package was great! Love the  super cool ties in there and the girl scout cookies are seriously divine. For Easter there is a breakfast that is like your Creme Brulle French Toast and that was really good. We had that Saturday. Then for dinner we went to an investigators house of the Sister missionaries and she just made us Dominican food. They do not paint eggs here sadly. Elder Anderson's mom sent a dye set.
