end of January already? woah.

Dear family,
Thank you for the letters! Yeah. Thanks Brandi!!! I wish you could have seen the smile on my face as I read the part about ¨It´s a wonderful life¨! Yeah yeah yeah!
Okay, mom sounds like you had a fun week with the bedroom. Hope things turn out well for you with that project. I´m sure that the Cookies went over well and that if he shared, his whole district is grateful. Yes I did find powdered sugar.
Dad, I´m really glad that you are having fun with your book, sounds like a good one.
Jack, grape jelly......really? very resourceful. hahaha
Oh and a belated Birthday shout out to Jackie and an early one to Isaac and Betsy!
Okay so as for things´s been good. Still hot, but good. It´s really interesting to see so many blessings and progress here in Tigre, when I feel like I´m still not quite working at full steam. Maybe the Lord just knows that I´m trying and that is what counts. I can´t even count the number of blessings I saw here in Tigre this week. Many of them were small and simple but I know that that is usually how the Lord works.
We had a wonderful lesson with Pablo on Saturday. We watched ¨Finding Faith in Christ¨ with him and a recent convert, Oscar, and one of his friends, Erika, a former investigator. Well the spirit was incredibly strong during and after the movie, the we talked about the savior and what he means to us. Pablo was at a bit of a loss for words, he has an amazing testimony of the Savior. Then to our surprise Erika shared her feelings as well and what she liked about the movie was how the family is sharing about Jesus and testifying to their friend, but not in a pushy way. I´d never even noticed that before, but it is really true. They are sharing their testimonies of Christ out of love for their friend. Then she surprised us and said she´d like to talk a little bit more about this later.
We also had several good lessons with Luz Maria, she has a baptismal date for this Saturday and things are still going well for that. We just need to work some more with the members to help her feel more comfortable with other people. She is quite attached to the two of us.
Yesterday we had a lesson with a reference from a member, Nelly. She is really interested in our message and wants to learn more. We shared about the Book of Mormon and are going to follow up on Tuesday.
So yep, that´s pretty much my week. I hope all goes well with everyone at home.
I love you all!
