Ahh.. My wonderful family and other loved ones! This week truly has flown by. I was so surprised on Sunday, I was like, wow! This week is already gone. Its crazy how time goes by in the mission. Dad, I guess you're right... I'm 25% done. Weird to think about. So about our investigators. We have 4 people with a baptismal date and they are for sure gonna be dunked, if it be the Lords will! We have Nidian this Saturday, and 3 members of the Vilca family on the 26th. There are a lot of more people that can be baptized this month, all we need to do is to be obedient, and WORK. This last Saturday we organized an activity called "Puertas Abiertas". Which means "Open Doors" in English. We printed out 1,250 cards that we passed out to the organizations in our ward, and we passed out ourselves. Also we appeared on 2 TV stations, with a personal interview. Who knew that my 15 minutes of fame would be in Peru? Hahaha it really was so awesome. One station made a copy of the interview, but they cant find it somehow.. So we'll be nagging them to find it so I can send it home! Anyway, on Saturday about 40 people showed up. A ton less than we were hoping for. But, nonetheless, it was a success! We have their addresses, names, and phone numbers. The only thing is, is that almost all of the references we have are in another sector.... Sweet! But I don't have a problem as long as they work and baptize them all! ;) Also, on Sunday early in the morning we get a call from the ZL's saying that they have a baptism this morning but they don't have electricity or running water in their chapel at the moment. So we change, and run to our chapel to start filling the font. Normally it takes 1 hour to fill, but we got 3 buckets of water and filled it that way as well. It took us 25 minutes! We were running around like chickens with our heads cut off, but we got it done! I ended up with 2 cuts on my hand, and some wet pants. Haha, I don't know how I got cut, but I just happened to look down at my hand and blood was dripping on the floor. Haha, so yeah. They had their baptism, it went well, and the water was freezing! Hahaha. We as a zone have a goal of 41 baptisms this month. Wow. Our goal is 5. I have faith that we will be able to complete with our goal. I am sure with the help of our Savior, we can accomplish all things! Like it says in Moroni 7:33. Look it up! Well, other than these little things, not a lot has happened this week! The work is progressing really well, and there are many people to baptize. We are working hard everyday, and Mom, I'm keeping my promise. I'll keep it forever! I love you so much mom, thanks so much for your email. Oh, by the way I got the letter with the pictures from Christmas last Monday, I forgot to tell you. And the letter from Aunt Jacquie as well! Tell her thank you! And I will write Gram and Gramps and tell them thank you! How nice of them!! :) Oh and Mom, Ash's birthday is on May 9th! How sweet of her to remember your birthday? :) I don't have much time left, I hope that this email finds all of you safe and sound! I miss you tons, but as I focus more and more on the work, its easier to not feel homesick. I thank the Lord everyday for this amazing opportunity I have to share this gospel with the people here in Peru! Los quiero muchooo!! Cuidanse! Tu hermano, hijo, y amigo Peruano...
