Another Exciting Week

Hey guys!!! Well it was so great to hear from every single one of you this week!!! Sounds like you're all doing great and staying plenty busy to finish up the summer. When does school start for you guys? I imagine in a couple weeks? Well now that it's official I can congratulate dad on his new calling as a seminary teacher!! That'll be super  cool! Especially if you end up teaching Kendall's class. 

Well this week has been really good for our investigators. The N Family went to church again yesterday and continue strong and excited for their baptism this Sunday. Also we met I and Á this week. I is the daughter of a less active member who we have been teaching this week. We had a really really powerful lesson about the restoration and she was able to feel the spirit very strong and was reminded of the testimony she had. Now we are just having some problems because her husband, who doesn't believe in God or support us teaching them, is doing everything he can so that Iris won't get baptized this week. So that's been a little tough but we are still working with them and she is also preparing to be baptized this Sunday. Ä is the boyfriend of one of the young women in our ward and he came to church on Sunday and had a lot of questions for us, so we've been working a lot with him as well.
Well this week was a little less crazy as far as the scary stuff. Except Wednesday, all of Saltillo was under ´Codigo Rojo´(code red) because there were like 17 murders the night before, and 5 or 6 in our area. Supposedly there were supposed to be a bunch of shootings in the streets that day so literally NO ONE was in the streets the whole day except for us that day because everyone was inside their house. That was kinda scary... but luckily nothing happened here. 

So something that I have been thinking about a lot this week is obedience and the blessings that come with it. There's a scripture that Dad always quotes and that I have really come to understand, D&C 82:10, that God is forced to bless us when we do what he says. And in the mission I have really seen the blessings of being obedient, even when it's not convenient or the ´fun´ thing to do. So try and be more obedient to God's commandments this week!:)

Well i love you all and i hope you have a great week!
