So my comp and I didn't have changes again, so I will be starting my 6th change in this zone! Now I'm the really old dog, but I've still got plenty of energy left to rip it up in the area. We're actually pretty excited because we have a lot of baptisms lined up for the month of September, Many of which are investigators that we found and have been teaching this whole change and with which we have seen many miracles.
Yesterday we had a Stake-wide meeting on missionary work to prepare all the wards to gear up for the Day in White that we're gonna have, where all the missionaries and all the wards are each going to prepare someone to be baptized all on the same day. Elder Lindquist and I sang "Ye Elders of Israel" as a duet and it went really well.

This week I have seen how God really prepares His children. Always in His own due time, but He definitely prepares them. Like the Castellanos family; we found them the first week of the change, and every visit we can feel them receiving an answer little by little. They basically know now that it's what they need to do, Paola said she received her answer, but she's waiting for Oscar to receive his and act on it. She told us that she will continue in the Catholic Church until he decides to go with us. They want to make a decision as a family. Since the second visit we knew they would come to it all on their own so we have been patient, teaching them each doctrinal point, responding to their questions and doubts. They are a chosen family, loved deeply by their Father in Heaven. It is a privilege beyond words to be an instrument in His hands to help them prepare themselves to make sacred covenants. This is the joy of this work. That is why I'm here.

I Love you all, and even more your Heavenly Father loves you :)
