Happy Vaentines Day!


Happy Valentines Day!

I will probably get your valentines on Thursday at the mission tour with Elder Dyches of the 70.

We had an absolutly amazing week this week! On monday we go to meet with German, the guy getting baptized on Saturday. He had invited someone that lives in the same building as him to meet with us. Her name is Mara. She is 16 from Paraguay and she looks exactly like Krista!! I showed her a picture and she was freaking out because they are pretty similar. We have already met with her 4 times. She has read about 10 chapters of the Book of Mormon and come to church already, has a best friend in church, and she wants to get baptized! The best part is her mom is totally ok with it. 

German is doing well, super prepared for his baptism. We still have a bit left to teach. Tomorrow he is going to have his baptismal interview. So hopefully all goes well.

Being zone leaders, we get to do a lot of companion exchanges. This week I did one with Elder Brownell, a missionary that was in the MTC with me. It was really cool. We had a super good day. He was one of the missionaries I went to the park with to contact one of the Saturdays. I got to see an ex-sister missionary who was in my district and zone for about a year of my mission. She lives in that area and came to help us with some lessons. It was super cool. 

Then I went to their district meeting to see how they are and after as a district we ate pancakes. SOOOO GOOOODDDD!!! HaHa! Also this week in the appartment we found a waffle iron! Let's just say we have had waffles a LOT for breakfast. Pretty soon we will get sick of it. 

While on exchanges, Elder Hawks met with a man and his wife that we had found a bit before. They are also from Paraguay. The husband is a member and she isn't but he wants to come back and she wants to get baptized.

Barrio 2 is just full of miracles right now. People are getting excited about the work! We had 12 member present lessons so they are getting out there with us and we are having success. We honestly need the members help to get these people progressing.

Well hope you all had a great week. Love you!
