The death of our Stake President

Hola. This week went pretty well. We are starting to work with the ward a lot more. Some Active members are starting to work a lot more with us. This will help us out a ton. This week our stake president passed away. I never met him but everyone is super sad. He is only 40 something years old and has like 4 or 5 kids. He got sick really fast and they couldn't do much to help him. We have a member in this ward that works with us every single day. After lunch we go to her house everyday to pick her up and then she stays with us until 8 or 9pm. Yesterday she got her mission call to Concepcion Chile! She leaves in November but I am sure Sam will meet her! She is so awesome! Right now we are working hard to find people that are going to progress. Every person we talk with we teach them the lesson right there on the spot to see if they will progress. We find a lot doing this but we really need to find more. That's about it for this week. Pray for Vanessa. She is a single mom with 3 young kids and is super lonely. We have a lesson with her tonight so we are super excited. I just got a letter from president saying that tomorrow the mission is having a cultural event. I have no idea what we will do but i am excited. I am loving it here. There is nothing funner than missionary work. I love you all!
