A visit from Elder Zaballos

This week we had a mission tour. Elder Zeballos of the seventy came and talked to the whole mission! It was super good. We learned a lot. He talked a lot about his mission and also about learning Spanish and English. He said those that speak Spanish and English can communicate with 80 percent of the members of the church. We had to promise him to keep studying Spanish after the mission. We are still working hard with Felipe! He is down to smoking like 10 everyday! On the days that he reads the Book of Mormon, he hardly smokes. But when he doesn't read, he smokes a lot more! We have the goal with him to quit this week and get baptized this weekend but it will be a miracle so please pray for him. He is such an awesome and funny guy! Johnny and Andrea are doing good but they have the worst luck ever. They are committed to get married but Johnny doesn't have his dni, so he has to get a new one and for his job. He works with a lot of cement and he doesn't have fingerprints because they got sanded off in his work, so he has to wait for his finger prints to grow back. We are hoping this week they will grow back enough. But they are awesome! They share the gospel with a lot of people so we are finding a lot through them. My area is another area where Austin Collie served. I met one of his converts this week. She showed me a ton of pictures of him. That's about it for this week. Love you all!!

Hola!!!! Thanks for the birthday present mom!!! I can't believe I will turn 20 this week. It's so crazy. This week was awesome! Felipe got baptized this Saturday! It was a huge miracle! In like 2 or 3 weeks he went from smoking 40 cigarettes daily to nothing. He says he wakes up every morning with chest pains but he is fully committed to never smoke again. He is so awesome! After his baptism he shared his testimony and it was so strong. He testified that this is the true church and that God did a huge miracle in his life to help him get baptized! He is also the funniest guy I have ever met. You guys would laugh a lot just talking to him. We are working with Felipe's wife right now and she is awesome! Please pray for her. Her name is Daniela. We found some awesome investigators through the members this week. We are working a lot with Alejandro. He is Felipe's nephew. He can be baptized this week so please pray for him. Also please pray for la familia Robles. They came to church yesterday and really liked it. Also if you could pray for Derek and Brian. Thank you so much for all the prayers. That's awesome news about Chelsea's mission call! When does she leave??? Tell Jake to write me before he leaves! Love you guys!!!!
