Hola Familia Clayton! I am glad that mom had a good birthday, you have many friends and family that love you! This week was pretty sweet. Joel was baptized! A week ago, he was still a little unsure about it, but we saw him every day and helped him progress in this week. He had an accident in July, he fell on train tracks and was trapped under them, and he threw his arm out and the train ran over his hand! So he wanted a new start, and he has definetly been prepared to recieve us. On the day of his interview, we did divisiones so I was with another Elder and we went to his house and we had planned on a time, and sometimes he just leaves because Joel can work right now, so he just gets bored and visits with friends, so we went to his house and he wasn't there! His family isn't that much help because they don't know where he goes, I was a little frustrated and this was the only time we could do the interview. So my comp, suggested that we pray, so I prayed, just asking to find him. and I am not kidding in 5 minutes we found him! He had his interview and was ready! On Sunday, he was baptized and a member that is a recent convert baptized him! It was an excellent service and Joel testified and was happy. This is the first area where the members want to work with us, and its the best! Working with members is a lot easier and better for everyone. The Zone is doing well and so is my companion. in one week there are changes! I really don't know what will happen because we both got here at the same time. I have 2 changes left, so who knows! but whatever comes, it will be good! Oh and fasting has really helped me this change, my testimony in the fast has changed quite a bit these past few weeks. its amazing what can happen when we go without food for a little while. love you all!! nos vemos!
