Hey all you out there!

Where to start! Well first I don’t think I have ever been so excited to see a bug spray man in my life! He came and fumigated our apartment, because we have an infestation of roaches! When we came back that night, we swept up some good piles of roach carcases! Glad those are gone, and we deep cleaned the pench, so it looks really nice!

We are still teaching the Lopez family! Mirian and Fabian (siblings) have a baptismal date for the 18th and they are both stoked! They are from a poor background and don’t have much schooling, but they sure do understand when we teach them the things of God. They were explaining to us what the plan of salvation was, what they read in the book of mormon and they are just do excited every time we come! They can’t wait until we start and give the prayer, so they can learn some more. Estepania and Lisandro are doing better (they were separated), but when we told them that they hadto get married before they get baptized, they pretty much just laughed at us. So tonight our lesson will be on the lay of chastity and how a family should be formed. They are so awesome, please pray that their hearts will be softened and they will have a desire to change.

Sunday the stake president announced that our area was changed, more than half of our area moved to a different ward!!! So our area shrunk a ton and the other sisters area doubled! Its pretty crazy and we still don’t know if we still work with what we were originally told or not. But with this change, it means that Teresita is not our investigator anymore. We still don’t know, but I’m pretty bummed because she is really awesome and I love teaching her!

So I’ve realized how easy it is to be taken in by the things of the world and I was reading an awesome talk by Hinckley and he said “No son or daughter or God can afford to partake of things that will weaken the mind, the body or the eternal spirit.” We have to make sure that our testimonies are strong and keep building them up. Don’t let the little things start tearing down your spirit, because those things will and you won’t even notice. Satan gets us slowly and he’s very clever! But remember you have the gift of the Holy Spirit and He will be your guide, IF you let Him. He is the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, and for this reason you can feel of Gods love and know that you are in his church. I love you all and I want you all with me forever, so this means you have to endure to the end and when you mess up, ask for the forgiveness that your Father is waiting to give! Hope you all have a great week! Keep the faith.
