Mis queridos,

We have had one busy week here in Mollendo. 
The lord is pouring out his blessings on us here in the area. We have a total of 11 baptismal dates and about 5 more in the process for the month of june. We have been so priveldged to find so many wonderful people to come to church and to listen to us. The members are SUPER excited to see that we are having such success and they are giving us so many references and new people to go and contact! (sure helps things out a lot) and the best part is that we are getting them all to come out with us and work alongside us in the work. 
I have gained such a strong testimony of the power of members in the work. We cannot physically do it alone...I think that is such a great lesson for me seeing is how my role in the work of salvation will be changing from the teacher to the finder. I hope that i can be able to help the missionaries out a ton at home. But my companion and i are excited as ever to work and find more and more people to help out. We must work with families....families are so key here in the work!

This last week we had the zone over for a fire on the roof to recieve the changes and happily...only 1 person is leaving from the zone! That is awesome because our zone is so great and they are working super good right now in everything. Especially my district....we are going to see some huge results here this month of june. We also had a huge service project in leveling some land for a less active here in the branch...haha the whole time i was sitting there shoveling i was thinking about our backyard project of digging....:) 

And we had a really great turn out of investigators and less actives in the sacrament meeting. 9 investigators and 11 less actives that we have been teaching!!! Such blessings!!! 

I am really happy right now. I love the misson and i love the work i am doing! :) Sometimes i can get overwhelmed with everything going on...but in the end...its just the best. 

We have a BUSY week lined up ahead for us...but we are ready. 

I am so glad you had such a great trek experience. You will always remember those times. I hope we can always remember our spiritual experiences and cherish them so that we can grow and learn from them. 
look to do miracles this week. look for ways to bless the lives of neighbors and friends.
