Hola Familia!Well life is so good and looks like it is super good for all of you as well. I cannot believe that dad is in Japan I am in Ecuador Danielle is in Germany and Mom and the boys are in the US. CRAZY STUFF. hahaha but really how crazy is that??? Crazy how life is. I hope you all are having a great time. Dad hope you get to go out and see some cool sites. Danielle take a TON of photos because it will be a trip of a lifetime. Man I love Germany I would love to go back. It is also super special that you get to be there for the World Cup... Crazy I can imagine that Germany is just as hyper about it as Ecuador was. Ecuador sure has chilled out since we lost and aren´t in the running anymore. But the US still is fighting strong!
We have been working hard with the family of the last baptism we had with Romel and his family. His uncle lives with him and his name is Javier. He has been quite the character and it has been great to be a part of the change he is making in his life. He is going to be baptized this Sunday in the morning before church because he has to work all throughout the week and won´t be able to be baptized Saturday. Crazy stuff. But he is so ready. We also for the past month have been working with his sister Melany. She had the discussions and was taught a while back by the Elders and read the book of Mormon to 3rd Nephi and never felt that she got an answer to her prayers and had no clue if the church was true or not and this last week we finally got her to come to church and after the classes we asked her how she felt and how she felt towards baptism now, and she turned to us and said, "It is crazy. I know this church to really be true!"
I wanted to cry. I just thought of how if those Elders who had been teaching her before would be so happy to see that she finally got her answer. God works in his own time. Every person has their own time and a plan that God has in store for them. God knew that Melany wasn´t ready before, but that now she is prepared and we just happen to be called to this sector right now to be a part of it.
Man the church is just so true. So many miracles every day. I love this gospel. I know it to be the only true gospel of Jesus Christ. I hope all can come to this knowledge. I love being here in Ecuador. Yes I am sad to be in Ecuador for the 4th but there really is no other place I would want to be.
Mom and Dad I just want to thank you so much for your example to me and all that you have done for me. Thank you. Keep being the best parents for all of us. Love ya tons.
Until next week,
