Hey family! Well, sounds like you all had a very good week. Thanks for the pictures that you sent me. It's nice to see you all. Well, this week has been successful. We baptized a younger kid this week. We also had transfers. I'm with Elder Medina. He is from Honduras. He is a good missionary. I'm kind of glad we have the change. It's a lot pressure having to train another missionary. Elder Medina has about 6 months in the mission, so I don't have to tell him what to do as I had to with Elder Coronado. I went on a companionship exchange this week. I went with a gringo. It was a lot of fun. His name is Elder Thomson. He is a good missionary. We talk English the whole time we were together. Our zone is really excited right now. We are going to set a record. Siguetepeque has never baptized more than 15 people in a month. We should pass that this month. I'm super excited. We are going to baptize 5 in my area this month. We are going to marry a family this and we are going to baptize them ! I'm sooooo excited!!!! The Lord is really working a miracle in our area. 4 of our baptism dates fell. The parents don't want to give permission to their kids to get baptized. We are going to keep on trying to get permission. If we can permission we will have 7 baptisms this month. That would be amazing, right!! We'll see what happens. I know if we have faith, anything is possible. It sounds like a lot has changed since I left. I really feel out of the loop, but I'm really enjoying the mission. I have never been so close to the Lord. I think it's a good thing that I feel out of the loop. I guess that means my mind is on something else more important. Yeah, I'm still teaching the English class. I couldn't teach the English class last Saturday because we hade companionship exchanges. Well, I have to get going. I love you all. I miss you.
