Hey guys!

Sorry I didn't write last week, was a little busy. But over the past 2 weeks we had some exciting things happening. 1) they will open a meeting house in our area because our area is pretty far from the church, and the members and investigators have a hard time. So on Oct. 16, if all goes well, Things will really pick up here in Irisan. 2) Transfers were last last week, and me and Elder Vicente are still companions. Its been a long time, but its ok, we teach pretty good together. 3) We meet this new guy named Skyler last week. His had a rough background, but he really wants to change his life around. We gave him the Book of Mormon and he basically started reading immediately. There's a lot of miracles that happen everyday day, and I'm always so grateful when we find new people, and when people keep their commitments, and the feel the Spirit in their lives. Seeing people makes changes, or repenting, is a very humbling experience, and sometimes we are astounded at the act of faith that the investigators take. Its simply amazing. I hope you all have a blessed week, ingat.

Hello guys!

This has been a great week, and it came to a fantastic close this fast Sunday when one of our less actives, Bro Munoz, got up in the front to bear his testimony to the ward about the blessings of the gospel. When I first met him, about 4 months ago, he was a guy that had some word of wisdom issues, and he was looking for direction. Through a great amount of faith on his part, he started coming back to church, he has no more problems with WoW, and he is no longer afraid to come to church. Its the strongest conversion that ive seen on my mission so far. Its been amzing to see the changes that he made in his lives in order to live according to the gospel, and then the changes that came into his life because of those decisions. He made a comment one lesson, "I dont have very much, but Im happy and my life is peaceful. I believe!" Nobody is out of the reach of the Atonement. I really love that guy. I invite you guys to think about the last time the Atonement has played a role in your life, and the last time youve seen it play a role in somebody else's life. Well thats it for this week, short but powerful. Take care ya'll!
