FAMILY!!!!  This week was an awesome one!!  Yesterday, we had the baptism of Hellen and it went great!  She is 20 years old and is the sister of a member here named Helton.  Helton was able to do the baptism and he loved it.  It was a great experience for all the people who were there.

This friday is Anderson and Mayara's wedding!!  We are so stoked for them!!!  We will go to the wedding on Friday and then the baptism will be on Saturday.  Burton will baptize Anderson and I will baptize Mayara.  We are so excited for them.  It is so cool to see people change their lives for the better and accept the gospel in their lives.

We met a super cool family this week as we were knockin doors, cuz we knock a lot of freakin doors! haha.  The dad is named Marcos, his wife Claudia, their son and Caudia's mom Cecilia.  They are a super catholic family, but were open to learn more.  We taught them the first lesson and it went great!  They seriously understood the importance of the message and the importance of the BOM.  I then asked what would change in their lives if they recieved an answer that the book is true.  Marcos responded quickly and said "Tudo" which means "everything".  They will read the BOM and pray about it and we will return on Saturday.

We are still doin lots of contacts and working with the members to find new people to teach.  Me and Burton are staying together longer and a new American is coming to be companions with the Bolivian that we live with.  It will be dope!

I love you all and hope you have a great week!!!
