12 December 2016

Well hello everyone. I hope you are all good and happy and full of joy. I love you all so much and I am praying for you guys everyday. This week was awesome and so fun. My new companion is Elder Salazar and he is so awesome! We have a lot of fun together and he likes to sing too, so we  are always singing haha! We love to sing the Christmas hymns!

So I love you all so much. This week has been very interesting. We were able to find 10 new investigators this week. We are working so hard to find and baptize. We were able to work with the members a lot and find more people to teach. I love this work so much. It is so awesome and I love finding new people that God and his angels have chosen to accept the Gospel.

The Sanchez family are really awesome. We are planning their baptism now for the 24th of December. We are praying daily for them and hoping they can progress. Their father is Atheist and we finally talked to him. He wanted to know all of the information that we knew and all the knowledge we had. we told him that God doesn't want us to have a perfect knowledge of things. God wants us to walk with faith, not with knowledge. He wants us to show our faith and keep walking. I testify that with faith, everything is possible.

We are getting closer and closer to Christmas! I invite you all to show your faith and grow and remember Jesus Christ. He is our Savior, and I know he came to the Earth. He died for us. He suffered for us. We will overcome the world thanks to him.

I love you all so much. Thanks for everything. I love you all so much. Thanks for everything! I love you all so much! Happy Holidays!!!!!
Love from Peru,

This was a miracle. Brother Luis wasn't sure he wanted to get baptized so me and my companion just figured it would be the next week. We were returning to our room in the afternoon and he followed us home and said that he had received an answer and wanted to get baptized. This man gave up smoking and coffee and kept all the commandments so he could get baptized.  It was a miracle! I had prayed to God so much to have a baptism because my companion was finishing the mission, and I wanted to have a baptism with him. Then this all happened. This picture is testament that miracles do happen. I know God lives. I testify that he answers our prayers, when we pray with faith. I love you all so much! Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know he lives! He lives, he lives, he lives, I just know it with all of my heart!!!

I love you all!

Love from Peru,
