I'm very happy about this week that has passed! Elder Lutz and I are doing real good work down here. This week we met almost all of the goals we put up this last week. And we have been working very closely with the branch. I am very excited to see the things that are going to come here. This Wednesday we are going to be visited by a 70. I'm really excited to learn something new and how we can improve the efficiency of our work. This week we found a new investigator, but it was hard to communicate with him because his first language is Qeche. I think we have a member who speaks it who will help us teach, so that will be interesting!

I know that the church is the only true church on the face of the earth. I know there is a prophet that receives revelation from God. I know that we can become closer to God by reading the scriptures, but especially the Book of Mormon.

This week has been a very exciting week regarding the work. We met all of our goals lesson wise. We are doing everything possible to fill up the church on Sunday. We also have been working a lot with the members and we got 4 new investigators through references  There is a lot of potential here. I'm really excited for what can become of this branch. The church attendance is anywhere from 70 to 100, but almost always in the 80s. I just remember one year ago with my trainer we had an attendance of 30. They need 150! Elder Lutz and I are having some real exitio. We may not baptize this month, but we have really accomplished a ton.

I'm so sure that this is Gods work. I know that without a doubt we are children of God and he loves us!

This week was fantastic! If we didn't have to watch the general conference we would have gotten a lot more done, but I don't regret that at all because I loved the conference  I feel like it was one of the most inspired conferences since I have been in the  mission. It was filled with the spirit. I learned a ton and there was a lot of advice for missionaries. As missionaries we really need to talk to more people instead of going from appointment to appointment ignoring all the people who we walk by that we could help. E Lutz and I have been trying to find new investigators and I felt that was divine advice for us. This week we are hoping to put up at least one baptism date. I love working with Elder Lutz. He is very excited about the work and he wants to be perfectly obedient.

I know that this work is Gods work. I know when we are obedient to his commandments blessings come.
