Sept 29 2014

Hey everybody, I'm pretty tired today. Elder Melo and I have been getting up early at least 3 days a week to go run and do pullups and stuff that like that. I was happy running 4 miles in 28 minutes. Then we went to the church with the whole zone to practice the special musical number for Thursday. Afterward we played soccer for about 2 hours so I got a lot of sun but feeling good. I love geting out and exercising!!
Anyway, this week was a little rough because one investigator and her son who had baptismal dates ended up traveling to Lima for 2 weeks to vote and so we will have to push the baptismal date back. But Hermana Angelica (the mom) took the Book of Mormon with her! That surprised us, but made us super happy. Before leaving for Lima she was already in 1 Nephi 7 and she likes reading it so that will help her a ton in her trip. Hermano Alex this week went to church and has a baptismal date set for the 18th of october so that is cool too. We are working a lot with him and we're great friends with him. I think he enjoyed going to church. Also one of the members that we re-activated a few weeks ago sent 9 names to the temple to get their baptisms and other covenants done so we congratulated him for that. In all the churches, There is a tree with leefs on it with the names of people who have sent names to the temple. It only got put up recently and the ward has worked a ton; about 20 people in the ward have sent names to the temple in the last few weeks. It´s great to see them working so much in the family history work. 
Right now I'm reading in Mosiah and I love learning from King Benjamin and Abinadi, let's keep being strong and sharing our testimony even when the world won't believe it, because eventually it will have an affect in someone like it did in Alma.

Anyway, that's all for now. Hope you all have a great week!
