Letters from 8/25/14 and 9/1/14

8/25/14
So, another week down. Officially one year in the mission!! Wow. It is kinda weird. Anyway, there was some sweet stuff that happened this week.
First off, something not so sweet, we didn't have a baptism yesterday cause our investigator was in the hospital. Good news, it was just precautionary. She had open heart surgery a while back and was having chest pain early on Saturday. So she just spent the weekend in the hospital so they could keep an eye on her. She will get home later today and, with all according to plan, she will get baptized on Sunday. She is a trooper.
This week we found a young kid. He is super prepared! He was taking lessons from missionaries 2 years ago. We were talking to him and he was telling us about all this stuff that has happened, his faith in Christ, and how he wants and feels like he needs to get to know God. He is super ready!
And Ramiro is getting ready for baptism and is super excited and dedicated as well. I don't have much time. Bad planning on my part. More to come next week!! Thanks for everything.

Well, nothing new has happened. Life is still the same. Things just seem to be dragging on. There aren't any transfers for us so I am going to hit 7 1/2 months in this area. A change of scenery would have been nice, but if it is what the Lord wants then I can't complain. I just have to learn whatever lesson that he has for me.
Well, we passed with Martha today. She told us that the doctor told her that she can't do any sort of physical activities in the slightest. Only half of her heart is undamaged. We are waiting for the go ahead from her to have the baptism. It was awesome because the first day she was home we went to visit with her. As we were getting ready to go she said "And my baptism? What happens now?" Her faith is SO big!!! It is a huge example to me. I can't wait to see the blessings that come with that kind of faith in her life.
Ramiro is also progressing really well. He is changing a TON of his lifestyles and a ton of his choices to better align himself with the will of the Father. He is going to be getting close to baptism real soon! It is great! 
We have started a Work of Salvation project. In our ward, if you go with the missionaries to a lesson or an activity, then we take a picture with you and then put it on the board. It is a good way to take pride in participating in the work of the Lord and then members will feel of the love and of how great this work is and be even more excited to continue doing it without us having to drag them by the ears!!
Sorry, nothing new is going on right now. We have to find lots of new people so these emails are more interesting!!! Ha-ha But the work is never boring, just slow at times. That is where enduring to the end (of the transfer) comes in. Anyways, I hope all is well and that you all have a fantastic week!!!
