What a wonderful week!

Hola Hola todos!

Wow such a great week we had this week! The Azavache family, Cynthia her husband Luis and 4 kids, are SO AMAZING. Their two older daughters have been coming to church pretty consistently but Cynthia and Luis no. So we taught about the Sabbath Day and told them about all the blessings they'll receive when they sacrifice to come to church and not work. And they ALL CAME TO CHURCH YESTERDAY! All but Cynthia because she had already bought all the fish she needed to cook and sell Sunday. But she promised that this next week she'll be there! WOT! That's one barrier down, now to just tackle their marriage.... cuuuuse they aren't married just yet.

But also Luis and Alejandro BOTH came to church WITH all their family! Both their boats were in for Semana Santa and they came all in their shirts and ties and everything! And they were able to go to the temple preparation class with their wives and it was AWESOME. 

Speaking of Semana Santa, it was full of processions of Catholics all week :) It actually was quite the culture lessson for us! The owner of our house who is also our pensionista, their whole family is HARDCORE Catholic. Needless to say, we got a few visits from some catholic processions this week :) It was so crazy. I'll send a picture.

Hmmmmmm,Oh! and My companion is getting transferred! We had a GREAT time here. But my new comanion is a sister from Lima (Puenta Piedra) really close to my first area! I actually went on exhanges with her a few months back. SUPER exciting!

Well, that's about it! I've been studying about Ammon this week and it just really caught my eye how all the promises the Lord gave to him as a missionary and to his father that he would be protected were fulfiled! And how the Lord promises us so much, baptismal and temple covenants being the first in that list. We just gotta be strong against so many temptations and be faithful.

Love you all and have a great week!
