Everything is WONDERFUL!! Yesterday was the baptism on Cinthia!!! She is the BOMB! Total boss! The best ever!! She just turned 15 and is so mature! She plays soccer and wants to go pro so one day when you see her name all around the world you'll know who she is haha! But really she is very special! Her baptism was incredible! Edison, a convert of a year and a half, baptized her so it was a great growing experience for him too. Then she shared her testimony after and it was so incredible! Her mom, non member, was bawling! Cinthia said that she hoped that her siblings and family can follow in her footsteps and be baptized too. We are working with them but her parents have to get married which takes some time here. Then her younger sisters, twins, are 7 so one day soon in September for them. I love Cinthia so much! She is INCREDIBLE!!!

Everything is going great! I have the best companions in the world! I have the best area in the world!! I have the best mission in the world!! (and Cali Sac of course). And the best Mission President and Wife in the world!!! (except Presdient Lewis and his wife of course- wow this two mission thing is hard).

We had some rain again the other day which is fantabulous, because that means it is cooler for a few days more! The night gets hot again but then hopefully it will rain again. Although somewhere in Provincia someone got struck by lightening. Scary!

Sometimes you´d think it was a thunder storm because of the Murga. In the Plaza by our apt there is usually a Murga in the afternoon. It is SO COOL! Basically it´s just a whole bunch of people that gather and some have drums a couple diferent kinds of drums with sybmols on top and the beat out this rhythm, and then everyone else dances. It´s so cool. The Murga dance is really easy but people get way into it! Even the little kids. I love it! I could stand and watch for hours! The culture is so amazing here! I´m sure there are videos on youtube. Murga is really popular in South America right now, Brasil, Argentina, I would assume Chile but I don´t know.

Well that´s my report for  this week.! All is well in this section of the vineyard! The work has never been better!!!!

We can´t- I mean CANNOT- do this withOUT the members! And I see it every time. The members come out with us or help our investigaotrs, the work is better and the members ALWAYS without fail recieve blessings from helping us. There is no downside to helping the missionaries. One Hermana was loooking for a job and she came out to visit an investigaotr with us, and this investigator was also looking for work and gave our member her interview at a business, because she had just found work in another place. There are blessings to be had! SEEK AND YE SHALL FIND!!

I LOVE you all!!!!
