First off, Happy birthday S/O to my best friend and sister brookie!!!!!! Your bday is tomorrow but yay, and we all know the reason you are getting married like 4 weeks after your bday! Just so you can tel your kids you got married at 21 hahaha! Hope its the best brooke:)
This week was good, its funny cause whenever anyone writes me nd tels me how on their phone the weather is going to be good, it always just starts raining super hard! But this past wee was good, we go a schedule change so we walk a lot more so somedays we walk no lie 15-20 miles, i kid you not! 
So dont get me wrong, my spanish isnt that good at all, but it has efinitley improved a lot! But soemtimes e are teaching and i am talking and i am just thinking in my head..... Wow i cant believe this actually working and im making sense in a different language! haha its way awesome and its funny too! 
Our investigators are all really progressing, but sadly all the baptism dates have fallen, but all 5 of them, the two different families, tell us how they know they are going to get baptized and the best part is they love going to church. They just want more time to learn different things but we are working with them, bu there wont be a baptism this month most likely it will be next month and next cambio! But either way it is one of the coolest things evr o see people turn their lives around and just believe in this gospel! it is a huge testimony builder to me! 
We play this game always in nuestro noche de hogares and its way fun is called the papa sacama but its like hot potato but its funny cause everone likes it and we had a Noche de Hogar this past week and there were a bunch of kids and adults just loving it! Its so sweet, its my favorite game!  Also here its funny how much nicer andmore receptive people are whe the weather is nice, ause for like 3 days it poured rain and was super windy and then the sun came out and the weather was os much better and people were just so much nicer hahaha! 
I dont have any huge stories like getting atacked by penguins or anything like that but a lot happens ina  day and espcially a week so i is hard to remember everything! But we are working hard and trying our best, the work is progressing and i have seen it these last 2 cambios and it is truly amazing to see! Just to see people trying to be better and build their faith, No matter what others think!
I love you all! Next week ill try to send a cool story and write it down but for now yall rock! Love you tons!
