Sorry for the lack of emails ultimamente. Things have been going really well and we are really busy! So earlier, our ward had been reduced to just one area, when it had been two. So my companion and I worked the whole ward instead of just half. And it's a big ward. It covers the area of about 4 Utah-sized stakes. But in these last transfers last week, they put more missionaries in our ward! So we're excited about that. And they're Elders! It's so weird because I was used to working with Hermanas. But it's all good. So that's one big news for this week.
The other is that our investigator Elías was baptized yesterday! Elías is a 12-year-old with a lot of family members who are Mormon. His dad is a member, but inactive. When Elías found out about the Church, he instantly wanted to learn more. Our first visit with him, he told us that he wanted to become a brother in the church. Teaching this young man was a truly incredible experience, I could really see that the Spirit teaches those who are ready to listen. It's not so much what we say, but the spirit with which we say it and how prepared the person is to listen. I know that Spirit will teach us and help us to know the "truth of all things" (Moroni 10:5).

We are happy and healthy (more or less) here in Valle Del Sol! You should all do all you can to further the work wherever and whoever you are. There's a place for all of us in God's plan.
I just haven't taken many pictures lately, but here are some of them.
