Hola from Camargo!

Hey everyone! 

got a new companion! His name is Elder Perez, and he is from Mexico City. In getting to know him, and asking questions about him, I asked him "hey, so when is your birthday?" and he responds "october 25th". i just remember thinking to myself "oh this is gonna be a good cycle". haha we have the same birthday! along with a lot of other things in common. He is great, and actually speaks a bit of english, and I am glad to be able to help him. 

Things are slowly taking off here in Camargo, as we are continuing to get to know the entire city and are always looking for more and more people to teach. We have about 15 Investigators and a LOT of work to do with the members and Less actives. The ward is a little small, and so with that this area might be less baptisms, and more re activating of members, but In my eyes, and Im sure in Heavenly Father's as well, thats still missionary work. We do hope and anticipate to have a few baptisms in October though. 

One of our Investigators, Marlene, is going great. We are still working with her on coming to church, but I loved and wanted to share our experience we had last week with her. We had a great lesson on baptism, Recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, Enduring to the End, and interestingly enough, Temples. She always has questions, and through the words that the spirit puts into our mouths, we are able to answer and eliminate her doubts. We explained to her that as husband and wife, we can be sealed together for time and all eternity. she said "what to you mean by time and all eternity? isnt eternity time too?" and we said that time refers to the time we have on earth, and eternity refers to the time after this life, and we can still be married after we die, thanks to the sealing in the temple. she was so excited to hear that, and I remember she was like "Oh, now I understand!!" it was just great to hear that she understood, and we will definitely keep working with her. 

a little shorter this week, but i just reassure all of you that the Lord lives and Loves us, that His Father is our Father, even our Heavenly Father, and that if we give heed to his counsel through the Holy Ghost and obey his commandments, he will bless us here in our earth lives and in our lives after death. We will all resurrect, and through obedience to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we can be exhalted and recieve the highest degree of Celestial Glory! I love you all!
