This week has been super crazy but we have seen so many wonderful blessings. I was thinking the other day how pretty and warm and green it must be. I haven't seen that in a long time.. 

This week went by so fast at the beginning of the week we found two families that are sooo awesome. We went to the family of four that we had found on Sunday night last week and we d taught them. Before we got there the wife told us that the husband was super happy that we were going to come by to teach them. We had a great lesson with them.  They are married and have a daughter that is 12 years old and then a little baby that is like 6 months old. They are so great. They are named Sebastian and Alicia. We are so excited to be able to work with them and we honestly believe that they will be baptized.

They both had missionaries in their homes when they were younger but then their parents stopped listening to the missionaries. They desire exactly what the gospel will offer them and we are so happy.

We did some service  for Sebastian on Saturday morning.  He is building onto his house and so we helped him for a few hours. We have already established a great relationship with them. 

They came to church with us on Sunday and before we went to pick them up and while they were getting everything ready we made hot chocolate for them and had it ready for them when they came. They were super happy. They liked church a lot and while we were sitting in church Sebastian saw this reference card that talks about how the book of Mrmon answers questions of the soul and he was telling me he really liked that and he wanted to talk about It.. We have a appointment with them tonight so we are really excited. 

The other family we have found is a marriage with two kids and a cousin that comes by the house a lot. They all came to church except for the dad because he had a work thing that he had to do. They also really like the church and want to come closer to God. We have really seen the fruits of our labors come now and we are really working hard to see miracles this month. We are thinking putting baptismal dates with them for the 15 of June which would be the greatest b day present ever, to see these families be baptized together. 

We had zone conference on wednesday and it was awesome. President talked a lot about obedience and its important and that if we are not obedient we cannot live with God. He also talked at the very end of conference about marriage and its importance in our life. It was pretty crazy hearing stuff about that.

We had Dominos pizza and it was really good. I was able to talk to President and Sister Bruce for a while it was great. We all traveled down there to Antofagasta for the conference.  

This week the office elders came up here to work with our zone a ltitle.  They bought us a new water heater and some other appliances which will make living conditions so much better.

We were able to work with one of the assistants and it was great. On Wednesday we travel back down to Antofagasta for our zone leader council with president Bruce. It will be the last one with him. he leaves on June 28th.

I am doing so well and I am sooooo happy.  I am excited about the people that we have found as we prepare them for baptism. I hope that you are all having a great week! I love being a missionary and serving the Lord.
