Hey family!! How is everyone doing? Well today is the 16th of September which is the same as the 4th of July in the states. There has been parties, fireworks, and parades here in Atlixco. It has been a cool experience. There is a hurricane in Vera Cruz (far away) and so the weather has been really rainy and kind of cold all week long. It just won't stop raining! Sounds like everyone is busy again with school and work. It's a good thing. Jami good job on your talk, everyone has said that you did a great job and that you prepared it yourself. Nice work.
Well this week went pretty well. Salvador and Cristina continue to progress. We just need to help them with the little things like reading and praying, because they aren't doing that very well. We also found 4 other new investigators that are from a small town far away. We have taught them twice and they went to the branch that we have!!! We were in the ward, but the members told us that they went. I see good things for them. They are really simple and humble people. They are so nice and offer everything that they have. I really do love this area. It has been really fun opening a new area with Elder Ortega here in Atlixco. Oh, one of the members from my old area in Agua Azul emailed me and told me that the Beltran Leon family is progressing like never before!! Even the Dad who never went once is now going and they all went to stake conference this weekend! Makes me so happy. If they get baptized I'm going for sure.
Well I don't have much time left, and I really got to go to the bathroom. Something that I learned this week is that God will always answer your prayers now matter what. I have received a lot of strength through prayer this week. We always have to apply to the Atonement each and every day. It cleans and cleanses up from wrong doings,temptations, and sin. I'm so grateful for what the Savior did for me, and I know he did it for you as well. Until next week,
Un fuerte abrazo
