Wow! looks like you guys had a fun time this week! haha Everyone's just partying it up without me!! haha That sucks that during your vacations you had to be sick!"! hahaha That's crazy how Bobby already went back!!! crazyyyy, time goes by so fast on the mission. seriously. That's the great part about it hahah!

Well, we had an investigator that was superrrrr goood this week named Juan Carlos, and we taught him the restoration and he was super excited about it and we could feel the spirit sooo strong in the lesson and everything, so afterwards I was allll pumped that we were having some success, and it wasn't only him, but his 3 daughters were there too and they said they knew the things we taught were true and stuff. And then we go back on Friday, the day we had the appointment, and he comes out and tells us that he really wants to continue and that hes been reading the Book of Mormon, and that he's felt the spirit a lot, but the other day his wife got SUPER mad at him for reading the Book of Mormon and for him wanting to go to church, and they got in a fight. And he says that she doesn't want us passing by anymore. WOW that SUCKED. I was like WHYYYYYYYYYYYY? Obviously we know who wears the pants in that relationship. hahah But that was such a downer, and wore me down for the day. But we´ve been praying a lot so that he'll be able to convince his wife and this his wife's heart will be softened. 
This week we´ve found some new people, that have potential. The problem is that they all have to get married. All of them. We found a couple that has a desire to get married, I'm just hoping and praying that they'll have a date kind of close, not like 6 months away. 
I don't know, its pretty hard right now because its sooo hot everyday and were looking and looking and looking, but we keep working. Its just weird coming from an area where I was just used to it, having success and everything, it shows how God wanted me to progress. I know that through these trials Ill be able to progress and after we see the results of our work, we´ll be able to see Gods plan. I don't know what his plan is right now, but whatever it is, at least I know its for the best, because he loves me. I just need to keep pushing forward, these next weeks are going to be hard, but I hope and have faith that everything will work out. I'm just praying more than ever now. And that's the only way I can feel like someones there with me. Because I can feel that Gods there listening. I hope that we have success this week!!! 

I hope that you guys have a wonderful week also!!! happy new years!!!!!!!

The fireworks here were sickkk because we live right at the bottom of the hill where they light them off, and they were sweettt. 2015 is gonna be a good year, because a lot of BIG things are going to happen this year :) 

I love you Guys!!!
