We have a baptism this coming Saturday. A mom and her two kids. Jane, Jemari, and Francisco Palma. I always feel way sad when only part of the family gets baptized, but I guess it's better than none. The dad has some addictions and does some things that he doesn't want to give up yet.
We are excited for their baptism and we are teaching a lot of people right now!

We found the cutest family last week and they are super active in their church (seventh day adventist) If you don't know much about that church you should check it out on wikipedia or something, its really interesting. Anyway, even though they are really active in their church, I can totally see them converting because they are super prepared. They are already pretty much living the gospel, they just don't  have the whole truth yet! And that's where we come in!
Seriously, we stopped by their house last night and they had a bunch of questions about the plan of salvation and said they couldn't find the answers they wanted in the bible. The dad said it was like the bible was "kulang" which means like missing something or lacking. We were like YEAH! Yeah, that's because it is kulang! That's why we have the Book of Mormon!

We have 4 others with baptismal dates for March 12. (happy birthday to me!) Two of them are kids in a part member family, one is an older lady who was a referral and she is way awesome. She reads the book of mormon and the assignments we give her (That is rare!) and she has been to church 3 times already. Its fun to teach her because we always see things clicking and lightbulbs going on and she just knows everything is true!

I am reading in Jacob in The Book of Mormon and I just have to say I really like chapter 5. I don't think I ever really gave it a fair chance before, and I never really understood it and I just thought it was boring. But it's totally awesome! v 65 and 66 talk about the good branches overcoming the good, but not all at once. It will happen gradually until the good has completely overcome the bad. I was just thinking about how sometimes I get discouraged because of my fallen/natural state. Sometimes all the changes I want to make seem so overwhelming and it just feels like I'll never be perfect like Heavenly Father. But it's not something that will happen all at once. We can't expect that.
We were listening to a sweet conference talk this morning and Elder Scott said that strong character is built by consistent correct choices or something like that. I was like, yeah, that is so true. We just keep working at it, we just keep trying to be good and do right and eventually the good branches of our tree overcome the bad until the bad are no more. We will become as He is.

Welp, thats all for now. Sure love you all with every fiber of my being ;)
Thanks for your prayers and everything else. (like letters!)

Thats all of us crammed in a tricycle. There are still two more on that tricycle sitting behind the driver you cant see, and the elder taking the picture stood on the side. We had to get out and walk up some of the hills during the ride because we were so heavy. Ha ha! I know you are so jealous! I am going to miss tricylces SOO much when I get back to the states.
