Feb 29 - San Gabriel

Hello All,

This week we are doing great! The heat is really starting to crank up, but we are hanging in there. It is hard here because it is really hot and humid as well. I feel like I am in a sauna (haha remembering that commercial that dad likes :)). Because it is the coast it is really different than Ayacucho. There it is hot but you can't feel it as bad as here. I guess it will just take some time to get used to.

We currently have four investigators with a baptism date. Two of them are sons of a family that are inactive. The Torres family. We just found them from a reference of the ward council. They are starting to come to church again after 8 years of inactivity. It is crazy to see how much people lose when they don't attend church for a long time. We have to treat them like new investigators because they have forgotten a lot of things and their testimony is not as strong as it was before. It will be a challenge but we are helping their kids be able to be baptized on the 20th of March. This day, if it comes, will be a great day for them. It will start them on the path towards being sealed as a family in the temple. That is the real goal...not just baptisms but allowing families be in the temple.

I love you guys soooo much and a lot!!

This is a family that I had found in my first area and they weren't able to get married due to mistakes with their papers (birth certificate and everything). I found them more than a year ago as investigators and now they got married and baptized!!
