Wow we had a great week out here!  First, we continued to help a family who is remodeling their back yard.  We spent 6 hours and wheel barrowed 2 big truckloads of dirt for them.  There is no way that they could do this work by themselves.  We have been sharing the book of Mormon with them and the mom of the family, Maria, has been reading!  She has even prayed to know if it is true!  She hasn't gotten an answer yet but she is going to keep on reading and praying.  Her answer will come.  They are really nice people.  It has been fun to help them out and share the gospel with them.  We are going to help them out again this week and teach them some more.  I will let you all know how it goes.  
The Lord has been working miracles this week with our investigator named Leonardo.  This guy is so awesome!  He came to an Elders Quorum activity this week where we showed him the chapel.  He sat in there for a while and then he put his arms on our shoulders and said ``I feel good.  I have peace.  Thanks Brothers. `` Guy is just a stud.  We ate Choripan at the activity, which is like a sausage sandwich. It was a great time.  The following Sunday, Leonardo was just so excited to come to church.  During the whole Sacrament meeting... the WHOLE sacrament meeting, Leonardo just sobbed.  Sobbed and sobbed.  It was amazing.  The testimony meeting was so powerful.  There was a peace and tranquility that just filled my soul.  I began to think why this grown man was just sobbing like a child, and I began to think of one of my favorite scriptures.  3 Nefi 11:19.  Where Nephi kisses the feet of the Savior.  I have thought that when I see my Savior, I will probably cry like a baby and kiss his feet.   This is what I thought about with Leonardo.  He had found his Savior and couldn't hold back his emotions.  He told me that he saw a white light during the Sacrament, his chest was filled with fire, and he couldn't hold back.  He thinks it was the Holy Ghost.  He is excited for his baptism date the 21 of February.
I am so thankful to be a missionary.  I see the miracles of God every day. I testify that He lives and that the gospel is true. Love you all, have a great week.
Happy Birthday to my Beautiful 2 little sisters this week!  Love you Sara and Jessica!!!  I am sending big brother hugs your way!  Miss you tons and have a great birthday!

Con cariño,
