Lots of Pictures!

theres an american guy in our branch and he made us cheescake, corn bread, and lasagna.  sooooooooo good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 daniela, kelly, angelica

so the lady on the far left is miriam and she{s been a member for about 2 or 3 years now.  she joined with her son, Giovanni who is standing next to her, and her daughter karen, who is on the far right.  daniela has been living with Giovanni for who knows how long and is going to have a baby at the end of this month.  she{s had tons of missionaries visit her but she{s always felt like they were pressuring her to get marriend and baptized. but for some reason when we came she was the one who came up to us and told us that she wanted our help and she wanted to get married so she could join the church.  she{s awesome and her testimony is so so strong!  She said after she was baptized she felt like she was floating.  so cute!! 

Angelica is miriams sister and kelly is her daughter.  we found angelica knocking her neighbors door one day.  she walked by and said they werent home.  so we started talking to her and figured out that her sister was a member in our branch.  after that we set up an appointment with her and her and her daughter were super recepitve and super excited to come to church with us.  when we told miriam, she was suuuper surprised.  she siad she had tried forever to talk to angelica about the gospel but she never wanted to hear anything.  it{s been so humbling to hear angelica and her testimony and how grateful she is for us- teaching her, i{ve truly felt like an instrument in the Lor{ds hands.  And her daughter kelly is so cute.  she{s 14 and has so much faith.  she{s always super eager to learn and accept whatever we have to teach her.  

the dad doesnt want anything to do with anything.  we{ve only seen him once and he didnt say a word to us.  which is super sad.  i cant imagine not being able to share something as happy as the gospel with my husband.  angelica wants us to come visit him so hopefully he{ll be willing to listen to us.  

so happy!!

it was so funny.. the water was not warm at all (not to mention green.... but thats normal i guess...)  so when kelly stepped in, she was like ohhhh it{s freezing!!!!  and angelica was like no, just keep going, dont even worry, the spirit warms you up!
