Well im still in my area but they split the area in half all of our solids were on the other side we had one lady ready for baptism but the hermanas have her now it will be good for the hermanas to get a baptism and more people in the ward but yah i love it here but our new side of the area is really cheto (classy) and rich rich people so they are happy with money and thats it, we contacted pretty much all day and not a soul listened to us, but good news for mom im in the one of the safest areas in the mission so need not worry mother im safe and well, anyways my new comp is from missiones argentina and he is pretty sweet we get along and talk alot and i can understand him really well and im excited that i can communicate with people now it makes me really happy that everything is working out but the 2 people we baptized are chosen they are AMAZING they always ask us when we are coming back and now they just say see you tomorrow and we teach them but they understand things now, also last week i said goodbye to my trainer he died in the mission (that means he finished the mission) dont worry he is alive and well but yah it was a tough goodbye but he taught me alot and im thankful for it but yah im not sure what to say this week i always forget what to say haha but love you all the book of Mormon is true and if you dont believe me then ask god and if you believe me still ask god so you can know for yourself:)

¡¡¡¡¡¡Bautizar!!!!!!! 3/17/16

Anyways this was a good week, we baptized Lucia and her mom and they were so happy and excited haha but aww the gospel is amazing and I am  super happy for them haha we have been teaching them for 11 weeks and we never forced baptism on them we let them bring it out because they had a bad experience with baptism a while back so we went slow while teaching it, anyways the baptism was great and i forgot to say amen so i had to baptize her again haha everyone gave me a hard time after  because i remembered all the hard parts and forgot amen haha but im super excited to have been apart of that and i want to continue to find people to teach, but yah im just happy right now and thats all i have to say, ph and also the jumper lucia wore for the baptism was to small she hid behind people and then they pushed her into the open and took pictures and she was just laughing haha and people took pictures all in joking and then she was fine with how it fit it was pretty much just floods on her but it was a good day and they are happy so im happy anyways love you all!

My Week March 10, 2016

Well my friends had a good week and we finally got some investigators on date for baptism we have been teaching them for the whole time we have been here and everyone tells us they would of dropped them a long time ago but they were progressing slowly any ways long story short the daughter was baptized a year ago but wasn't confirmed because she didn't want to but now she is so prepared for baptism she read 52 chapters in a week all of 1 and 2 nephi in ONE week haha and she goes to seminary now and she want to go to the temple and im so excited for them they have gone to church 7 weeks in a row well the mom has and the daughter 5 weeks in a row and all 3 hours so they are excited and the daughter asked if she could be baptized twice we said yes for sure you can haha but im really excited for them because they know the ward really well they were just slow at this whole thing because we think she didnt get confirmed because she was overwelmed so we went slow and waited to invite her to be baptized and she said no the first 2 times we invited her haha but the last time we pretty much brought up baptism and she went for it haha,
Also we did divisions this week i was with elder condori he is from peru and it was fun i could understand everything he was saying so that made me happy we also met an anti Christ haha he just opens the door when we knock and he was eating cereal and just looks at us and says im an anti Christ and then keeps looking at us then says have a nice day haha it was funny because most of the time they are mean haha 
Also this week we did service for a recent convert and we did her lawn and pulled weeds then she gave us $100 pesos each and said its for god and we were like we aren't gods and tried to give it back then she started crying like sobbing like she just lost a family member and she gets loud and high pitched so we cant understand here and then she was talking about her injury in 2003 and how she cant touch the middle of her back with her one arm anymore or something like that but yah she told not to give the money to anyone else so we were like we cant take this and she just would cry then she settled down and we told her we were giving it to the bishop for fast offering and she was ok after that but yah weird week but its a good week anyways love you all
