This week has been hot! We´ve been super happy because Doreidys progressed so much in just one week! She´s been super busy with her 2 year old son, with her finishing high school and being pregnant that the other weeks she didn´t really read the Book of Mormon or read the homework that we left her. But this last Saturday, she had gotten home from school, her son had gone to sleep and she´d done all the homework that she could and was ready for bed and trying to sleep but couldn´t really well. She started to read all of the little homeworks in the Book of Mormon, and she said she had prayed for an hour trying to feel her answer and she felt nothing. She climbed back in her bed a 2 am and slept. She got up on Sunday went to church and in the first hour she heard a testimony and felt something different and strong inside and then they ended and it didn´t go away. The feeling stayed and then she understood all of the things that she needed. She felt that she wasn´t worried if she had an accident and passed away, that she´s not worried anymore for anything like that. She knows that there´s a better place and that God will protect her sons.

I know that God has his way of working with the people and it´s a perfect way. His way is the best and if we just show our faith in Him, like Doreidys reading until the early hours, we will be blessed with what we look for. Ask and ye shall receive. I testify of the truthfulness of this and that the Book of Mormon is the Key to knowing the questions that a soul could have. If we read it with faith and we pray with faith, God will bless us in every aspect of our life.

Saludos! This week has been amazing! Even though we´ve seen many trials, we´ve seen the tender mercies of God. This week we had planned to have a baptism of an investigator named Doreidys. She loves the church and knows the good that it´s doing for her 2 year old son, but she had just gotten into school 2 weeks late so she has a lot of homework. One of her friends in her class lent her all of her notes but needed them back that Sunday. So she chose to stay there to do her homework and not go to church. So that makes us sad, but the good thing is that we found a miracle named Victor who can be baptized on this Saturday! So we´ll have the baptism the next week for Doreidys. 

There´s a goal for the mission that we all find 1 person to baptize in the month of August. President wants us to see the miracles of God in these weeks and I know that they´ll come as we do our part. I hope you all have a great week!

I´m glad everything´s so good with you guys! I still don´t have my card and don´t have any Idea about the shoes. I called the offices and they don´t know anything either about it. Sorry! Love you! I copy all of your messages and print them out and read them at home! Love you mom! Lots of work and enough in church. We´re working with someone named Doreidys. She´s super excited for her baptism and can´t wait for it.
