Hello Family!

We had a really good week this week. Not as busy but still super amazing.

First off we had some great miracles yesterday. Margarita has been really sick lately and so we go over with our Branch President to give her a blessing and she just was not doing well. We gave her the blessing and then she just laid down on the couch as we read scriptures, and general conference and sang to her. About 15 minutes later she felt so much better. The fever had gone down and the shaking from all the pain stopped too. We were then able to talk to her because she had her strength back. We talked about a branch activity that we are having on the 2nd of August and we talked about having the baptism that day also and she said yes!! We tried to have it in the river where we are going to have the activity but since we have a font (well blue tarp thing) we cant. But the ward party will be a nice activity after it.

Also on Saturday, we were calling everyone trying to set up appointments. We call a man named Junior who had met with the missionaries before. He didn't know a time to meet but we invited him to church and he came! And during Sunday School, he tells us he wants to be baptized! He wants it next week but we still have to teach him everything so we talked about it and set the date for the 9th of August. We are really excited for these two baptisms!

On Wednesday, we had a zone training in Santiago which was nice but rough on our day because Santiago is super far and the bus leaves super late! But we had a 2 hour long conversation with an Irish lady on the bus ride back. In the training we talked a lot about not putting limits on our abilities. And how we can better our teaching so that the investigators understand and feel the spirit more. So we quickly put it into practice. Thursday we met with our new Brazilian investigator Joana and taught the restoration. We made sure to ask VERY specific questions to her and to leave a lot of space after the first vision. We probably sat there for about 30 seconds but she just sat there pondering and then looks up amazed! It was such a great lesson.

Super good week! Full of powerful visits. So this upcoming week is pretty big. I'M GOING TO HIT A YEAR! It's super weird to think about but to look back I have loved every minute of it. I have grown sooo much in testimony, maturity, a ton of different things. I'm so grateful for this opportunity I have to be here right now. Each day is a huge blessing. Thanks for all the support! So excited for this up coming year! It will be full of even more miracles. 

Have a great week! I love you all!
