Hola familia! 

Crazy miracles are happening here with the help of our Heavenly Father! We got a text on Tuesday morning from a member who told us that a family had just moved in with them and they needed the charlas! (lessons) so we went by later that day and started talking to them. The mother is a less active member and is ready to come back to church after ten years! She said that she has had a hard life and they have gone through a lot but is ready to repent and humble herself and come back to church! Just that in itself is a crazy miracle but thats not even half of it :) Then after talking to her three kids and teaching about baptism and why we need to be baptized, all three of her kids said they wanted to be baptized and follow the example of Jesus Christ!! So we set dates with all three of them for 23 de Abril! The oldest son who is 21 had just gotten out of jail when we talked to him. He has struggled with things in his life but as we were in the lessons talking about how we can start a new page when we are baptized and be washed clean of everything we have done in the past, he started to cry and the spirit was so strong. My companion and I are super excited and thankful for them and for the miracles that we are seeing with the help of our Heavenly Father. They weren't able to come to church yesterday because the mom worked but they will be coming this next Sunday

We also had Spanish Leadership Council last week! It was super good to see all the close friends I have made out here and to talk about the success we are having as a Spanish program. But also talk about certain things we can improve to improve the wards in our areas. President Mortensen always has something new for us to improve on and the revelation he receives comes straight form the lord so I know we are doing what the lord would have us do. 

So crazy story from this week. On the way to Spanish leadership council, Elder Berry and I were sitting at a stoplight and all of a sudden we got hit from behind from a van so we pulled over and this Mexican guy that barely spoke English ( which is fine because Spanish is better anyway :) gets out and gets all mad saying that we should've gone and then he wouldn't of hit us but we were at a red light so I had nowhere to go haha but anyways our car bumper was damaged and he didn't have his license on him or anything so it was a bit of a struggle but we got through it haha. 

We had a super decorated district meeting because of st Patrick's day so I will send pics of that. 

Thanks everyone for the emails and the support that you have given me this week. I truly love serving a mission more than anything. The work here is so rewarding. I feel the Lord's hand in everything we do and I know he leads us and guides us to those who are willing to repent and change their lives. One thing that has been on my mind a lot this week is the atoning sacrifice that Jesus Christ made for us. He went through all our pains and afflictions and in return, all he asks is that we keep his commandments. If we do that we truly are so much more happier and will receive an eternal family. I love this work and I love all of you! I hope y'all have a great week :)
