Weddings: The families are progressing super well! Thank you so much for your prayers because 2 of the families almost didn't make the date to be married, but the state extended one week more!! Haha its so crazy. So 1 couple was on track, everything ready, the other couple just decided to do their own wedding and not the massive, and the other two couples hadnt been able to complete every requirement but were so happy when they received one more week to finish everything to be married on September 6th!

Temple: We are taking America (a less active sister that we rescued) and her daughter J (who was baptized on july 4th) to the temple this friday along with another family, J and her daughter! Its going to be so cool!

Baptisms: We have 2 on track for their baptismal date on the 29th of August, one is M, she is 11, we are reactivating her family and her dad who was against the church has softened his heart and is allowing her to be baptized because she really wants to! The other is Hermano J, he is one of the couples getting married, his wife was less active, they are getting married on the 27th in their own wedding and he wants to be baptized on the 29th! All of this is so amazing and makes me so happy and there are many other families like this that we are reactivating and finding others who are prepared to make this sacred convenient with God, 

Testimony: Baptism is awesome! Im so happy I was baptized and now I get to thank the Lord by helping others have Faith in Him, Repent of their sins and transgressions, be Baptized, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Endure until the end! Follow Gods commandments and you will be blessed. I think about how happy I could be in life with out the Gospel, but then I realize that its multiplied by 100 because I DO have the Gospel in my life, and with so many blessing that God has given me, it is my sacred duty to help others feel this same amazing happiness and joy. God Lives, He is our Father. Jesus Christ lives and is our Savior. They both love us soo much. There are so many blessings prepared for us, they are just waiting until we take that one step in the darkness and show them how big our faith is. Don't hesitate. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

Love you, Have a great week!

Things are going very very well. I am really happy. I have 4 months here in Las Lomas and wow its great, 2 weeks left until the transfer and then I'm sure Ill head out, leaving the area to my companion. We are working harder than ever. We have a great vision of where we want to go and what we need to do to help these very special families come unto Christ. This week we had lots of cool and spiritual experiences. The families that we are teaching are progressing very well. The wedding plans are going well. Some small challenges, but the spirit is guiding us. We have plans to bring some recent converts and families recently activated to the temple the 19th! Stoked for all of the amazing progress and we are praying that it can all turn into souls saved in the Kingdom of God. That is our 1 goal, save souls. The worth of souls is great in the sight of God. Continue with faith and be strong.

This week is going to be soo awesome because we have a list of every member and we are going to find the less actives and also get to know all of their neighbors haha. Our biggest priorities this week are 4 families that are going to get married this month! One couple are both less active members baptized as kids and just now reactivating and seeing the importance of marriage, the other is a less active sister who's future husband is now investigating the church, she is reactivating and he is going to be baptized at the end of the month, and the other two are investigators getting married so that they can be baptized! This is the plan, and we need lots of help and prayers so that they can all get married on the 23 of August! (here they have 2 or 3 times a year what is called a massive wedding where its a little cheaper and easier to get married all on the same day) Its very difficult to get married here sometimes for the people that come from other departments or also from the jungle or places not so advanced, so the biggest trial is getting all of their papers gathered and up to date. We have been working with these families for the whole 3 months that I have been here and this is the big opportunity! Please include them in your prayers! They are soo cool! Im going to be soo happy for them when they can finally have the blessing of being married and then prepare to be sealed in the temple! 

PerĂº is great, I love it so much, its such a reality check in every aspect and its amazing this earth that God has given us. Our choices determine our destiny! Make good choices, love God and Love one another. Love you so much! Have a great week!
