This week was super good! 

First off, Joabe will be baptized on october 10- last week he got super sick and almost died and ALMOST agreed to be baptized earlier but he´s set for the 10!!!

And this week we began teaching Rodrigo. He´s super awesome!! He recently lost his job and his girlfriend of 11 years left him and for the first time in his life he started reading the bible these past couple weeks searching for guidance and then, as he said, ``we showed up`` haha. We only had time to teach him one time this week but it was the best lesson ever. He started out by asking us what the difference was between the bible and the gospel of Jesus Christ- SO we started teaching him about The Gospel of Jesus Christ and we got to the part about baptism and he started asking a million questions about baptism and the priesthood and who has the priesthood, etc. SO in the middle of our lesson we also taught the Restauration and he understood perfectly and even said ``tonight im gonna ask God if i need to be baptized by the priesthood.`` We didnt even have to ask him to!! the spirit seriously was so strong during the lesson and after the lesson he began asking us questions about the mission and how we feel when people dont want to hear our messages and i told him ``It doesnt matter how many people reject us, if we can save one soul- we´re beyond happy.`` and after i said that he was quiet for a minute and then said ``do you think it´ll be mine??`` 

Im so so so so so happy to be on a mission and to be helping other recieve the blessings of the gospel. i read a quote this past week by Ezra Taft Benson; ``The Lord works from the inside out. The world works from the outside in. The world would take people out of the slums. Christ takes the slums out of the people, and then they take themselves out of the slums. The world would mold men by changing their environment.Christ changes men, who change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.`` I know that all the trials and difficulties that Rodrigo passed through were the Lord preparing him to hear the Restored Gospel, and every trial and difficulty we pass through can help us reach our potencial and become more like Christ.

Thanks for all the support and love! 

Love you all!! 

Tchau tchau!
