This week was a great week. On Tuesday we found a new investigator that has been very prepared. He told us that he has been going to every church in the area trying to find out which one is the right one. He has been praying to God to show him the right church. We taught him the restoration and invited him to be baptized. He accepted only if God tells him what we have shared is true. And we also taught his mom yesterday and she had a lot of questions and we helped her understand somethings a little better and we almost put a baptism date with her but we didn't. I'm very excited about this. Things are going great with Elder Herrera. He is progressing fast and learning everyday. I know this is the Lords work.

Drew sent these pics and ran out of time to send a weekly letter but you can see that he was pretty excited about finding Crunch Berries in Guatemala.  He also told me that while he desperately misses La Libertad, he has a lot more food options and is eating really well where he is at now.  He was able to get a suit made for himself and they put the Guatemala flag on the inside.  In these pics is the pic of his bed with the Seahawk blanket I made him, so I know that it is REALLY Drew! :)

Drew also sent an email to Baylee, all in Spanish.  He basically told her that he is happy she is doing basketball, to practice hard, play it through high school and that basketball is a lot better than softball (she has played softball for 3 years and this is her first time playing basketball).  She really is playing because of how much Drew has pushed for her to do it.  He also used to spend a lot of time with her shooting hoops and pushing her in that direction before his mission.  He is a great older brother!

This has been a great week. I'm with my new companion that I'm training. His name is Elder Herrera. He is from Honduras. He is a really nice guy and is very excited about the work. This week was a tough week. We have been struggling to get new investigators and this week we just couldn't find anyone. But we have an idea to look up some old Antigua investigators and we will see how it goes this week. All in all we are hoping to finish the week with three new baptism dates. I'm really excited to see how it goes. I know that his is the Lords work and that he wants us to be happy. We are really representatives of Christ and he will bless us according to our obedience.
