February 1, 2016

​This week was a very exciting week for me. Alexandra got baptized on Saturday! She is an amazing person! She was one of the first lessons I taught here in El Salvador and you could just tell from the very beginning that she was prepared to receive the gospel. It is though that first lesson with her that I gained a testimony of the work that happens from the other side of the veil. There was a certain light that came into her eyes that night and it has been there every since. She has changed so much and i cant even explain the love that I feel for her. She has had such a desire to change and shes had alot of struggles to get there, but she finally got to make the ultimate change this weekend. She came out of the water just beaming. I asked her after how she felt and she just giggled and gave me a big hug. She is amazing! It has also been amazing to see how her family has changed in just the last couple of days...they are so much more open. Last night, we went over to the house and they welcomed us right in with big smiles. Before her baptism, we were not ever allowed in the house if they were there. So it is big progress! Her mom also told one of the ward members that she wanted to come to church to see what it is all about! This girl is going to do something amazing for her family! 

Not much time to write this week. But things are good here in Turìn! The bugs are gone. Our investigators are moving along well and we are doing good! In all honesty, my comp and i do struggle...quite a bit. She's pretty baggy. But its all just something you have to push through. The good thing is...the people here can't tell and we can work well enough that we are able to get things done. We are working through our struggles and I am learning to love more easily every day. It is amazing what serving people can do. But I am happy, healthy and safe as always. Learning more about the gospel, Christlike qualities and Spanish every day! 

Love you all so so much! And pray for each of you individually every day. Thanks so much for your letters and prayers!
