Hola Familia!! 

This week was really great!! We worked really hard and as a result we found a lot of miracles!!  
This week we had made a goal to have 21 charlas(lessons) with investigators!! Of course everything was going along smoothly and it looked like we were going to meet our goal and our phone stopped working..and that is why we have now been going almost a week without a phone. It makes things a little difficult when the next set of missionaries live two hours away from you! But we made it work AND we had 21 charlas this week!! We were sooo excited!! 

We also received a new mission leader this past week and he has been working so hard!! One of the miracles that we saw from this week was a direct result from Hermano Ancheta having desires to share the gospel. He has always worked with the missionaries a lot and this past week an old investigator informed him that she and her family wanted to get baptized! So we went out there and it is true!! There are four people in this house that want to get baptized and we are super excited!! 
Another fun thing that happened this week is that Uruguay was playing against Ecuador and as a result there was NO ONE in the streets and every house was watching the game..we always knew what was going on because the whole town freaked out over everything! It was really fun!!  

This week I have been reading in Alma in the Book of Mormon and studying about the second coming of Christ. The time really is not so far off when we will be in Christs presence and one scripture really stood out to me from my reading in Alma. It is when King Lamoni is learning of the faithfulness of Ammon and he says that he has never had such a faithful servant. (Alma 18:10). But it made me think What is Christ saying about my service? Am I serving to the best of my abilities? The time is not too far off when I will have to respond to these questions face to face. I would like to invite you to think of some ways that we can serve Christ a little more in our lives so that when the time comes the Lord can say the same about us like what  King Lamoni said about Ammon! I love you all and I hope you have a great week!

Hermana Rich
