hey, thanks for the letter, I´m glad that you all are doing good. That´s awesome that you went on the trek, great. I understand with the way you had to dress. There´s some americans here that have two, maybe more, bake shops, and it´s really good stuff. But the owners are mennonites, they speak, spanish, and so I see them every so often, because we go there sometimes with the Fairbournes, the missionary couple here in the office, (it has it´s benefits to go with them, mostly because they pay, haha) and also there´s a bake shop in our area.
The weather is the same here, it´s for sure colder here than in idaho. right now, it´s about 70 degrees, and that´s when it´s not raining, but usually when it rains, it´s not too heavy, it´s just kind of a normal rain. And it gets colder too. It says that tonight the temperature will be about 50 degrees fahrenheit. Last night, we found some new people to teach. I haven´t been with them yet, because e. maldonado and us did divisions, and so he went with a member, and they found about 3 new people. I went with another member, and we found a 20 year old kid named benjamin, whose mom died, and I believe he´s having a pretty hard time with that, so I´m gonna try and keep in contact with him, to see how that goes, and I´ll let you know or not.
I think that´s so awesome that jared and sarah are the same age, and then they always have someone to hang out with. That´s always fun.
Gonzalo is really ´pilas´ as you would say in spanish. He always wants to leave with us, and work and everything. It´s going really good here in this area. Tonight, we have a family home evening with a less active family, so we´ll see if we can get them to come to church. That would be really great if they started to come. They´re named the castro family.
Here´s some pictures of the baptism of first Álida, and also gonzalo. We had to put a bag around his leg and everything so water didn´t go in, but it still went in, but that´s alright, I think he´s getting it off in a week or something, so it´s all good. But I hope that you all have a great week. Thanks for everything, and hope that you enjoy your week home, after being gone for most of this past week. I´m always praying for you and hoping that you´re doing good, staying safe,
