One of the best week's of my mission!

"This week has been super, super good.  Probably one of the best in my mission.  The sector is great.  It's a lot different than Cordillera.  Half of it is SUPER rich and the other half is just normal.  But we´re up a little bit more against the mountains so there are a ton of hills.  We were so tired today that we took a 4 hour nap! 

We have some amazing investiagtors.  We have one named Luis, he is the sweetest thing.  He is in his 50's and he is the only member in his family that isn´t a member of the church, but his sister is menos activa, and his mom just recieves the sacrament in her house on Sundays because she´s super old.  He's autistic, which makes it hard for him to interact with people socially, even to be with us while we´re teaching.  And he's had such a hard life.  He's going through some really hard things right now, but we had a wonderful lesson with him this week where we read the story of Job.  The spirit was so strong.  At the end he gave a beautiful prayer.  It was so sincere.  And he talked about a promise that he had made with God recently to follow his path.  We´re pretty sure he knows it's true and is ready to get baptized, the only problem is that he works on Sunday, so he can´t go to church and there is no possible way he can quit right now.  So we´ll just have to see what happens.

We´re also teaching another girl named Camilia.  She's 19 and super sweet.  She was a reference from her boyfriend who leaves on his mission in a week and a half.  We taught her the first lesson and it went super well.  She accepted a baptismal invitation and is super excited to learn more.  I´m not sure if we´ll be able to get her baptized before he leaves, but she went to church this week and things are going really well with her.

They have a few more investigators, one with a baptismal date, but I haven´t been able to meet her yet.  But 
we´ve recieved some great references this week, so we have a lot of work to do.  I´m excited.  

Hermana Achucarro and I get along great.  We´re already bestfriends.  We laugh all day long which is super fun."
