Alma 26:12 Yea, I know that I am nothing; as to my strength I am weak; therefore I will not boast of myself, but I will boast of my God, for in his strength I can do all things; yea, behold, many mighty miracles we have wrought in this land, for which we will praise his name forever.

Pretty great week!
past week wasn't too bad. We went on exchanges with the Zone Leaders
so that's always a good experience. I stayed here in my area and my
companion went to their area. We still somehow managed to talk to
people who only spoke Spanish so it was a little nice to having to be
the one to talk to them haha. I only have a few things I know how to
say to people on like door approaches or something like that. But I
can surprisingly understand most of what they say. I still need to
learn it though!
were at this apartment complex a few weeks ago and this girl came
running to us asked if we were Mormon so of course we said yes and
she said, "ME TOO!!!!!" She was a little excited lol. But
she wanted to know where the church was so she could start going. She
had just moved here and got married about a month ago. Anyway she
invited us to come to her house and answer some questions she still
had cause she has only been a member for a few years. Her husband
stayed in their room most of the time until the end when she wanted
us to help her stop smoking so she called him out and asked him to
join her and he accepted! We have this 15 step program we teach to
people who wanna stop smoking. They committed to everything we asked
them to do. And now we're going to start teaching him the lessons.
They move in October cause he's getting out of the Army. But he's
accepting to the Gospel so we will get him before he moves! ;) haha.
also started teaching a few other pretty legit investigators this
last week. It was a pretty great week. No crazy stories or anything
sadly haha. We have two baptisms scheduled for next friday so
we are pretty stoked about that! One is a 9 year girl and the other
is this girl in the wards fiancee. Its been nice this transfer to
only have to worry about the 1st ward so things in this ward are
finally starting to get a move on haha.
still continues to be the random crazy thunderstorms but its pretty
awesome! Its sad though cause they always happen at night!!!! When we
can't go drive around in all the crazy rain! The thunder and
lightning is pretty intense though.
went to the El Paso Zoo this morning as a district. That was actually
pretty fun. they have some pretty cool animals here.
I hope everyone had a great last week and has an even better one this
week!! Love you all!
