Dear Mom and Dad and My Family and Friends,
Time flew by so fast. Elder Hansen and I ended our first transfer together, and Saturday night the Zone Leaders called and let us know that we don’t have transfers. But in our district, they are going to be opening up another area in the Colorado, and so our district now is going to have 8 missionaries!
Also, this Wednesday we had a Zone conference and I got to play the arrangement of Savior Redeemer of My Soul. I was not able to line up a time to practice with the singers and the pianist and so it was going to be a pretty spontaneous performance, but the Lord sure helped us and we stayed together and it sounded great!
Also, in this Zone Conference, President Rodriguez taught us about the importance of the Sabbath Day and that as we make this day holy by showing respect to God in our actions, thoughts, and words, He will bless us. Also, something really doctrinal we learned was how Heavenly Father is perfect and can keep working without getting tired, but He and His Son set the example for us by resting on the Sabbath day. So the principle of rest and remembering God is a divine, heavenly principle. And to emphasize this importance, the Savior did not tell Moses the 10 Commandments but He wrote them in stone with His celestial hand. Wow, how important is it that we attend church and that we remember the Savior, Jesus Christ, by taking of the sacrament each week so that we can "always have his spirit" to be with us.

Also, Marianella and Paola are doing great! We are working on teaching Silene, Marianella’s sister and preparing her for baptism. And also this Saturday we have an investigador named Carlos Bryan, who is going to be baptized. He is 17 years old and has been attending church this past 3 weeks and wants to be baptized. He has been reading the Book of Mormon and feels good every time he reads it, but still doesn't feel he has received an answer all the way. Please remember them in your prayers this week.
I know that the Lord Jesus Christ is our Savior and that He loves each of us so much and that this is His work! And he needs everyone of his disciples to preach the gospel!
P.S. My camera died, but I will send pictures next week!
