Que calor!

Que dice familia? Hows the weather in Lehi? We are burning up here in Veracruz, it is sooooo hot!! But we are loving life and finding tons of great people to teach in the area. I sent some pictures here of the offices just so you guys have an idea of what they look like. 

So I will start out with the good news.... Gabriela is going to be baptized today at 5:00!!! We are soooooo excited!! She is amazing and has progressed so much in the short time that we have known here. i know that Heavenly Father sent us and wanted so bad for us to go and teach her the gospel. It was actually a miracle that we found her in the first place because Elder Fox had gone and done divisiones with a companionship in another zone like two and a half weeks ago. He ran into a member there that knew Gabriela and had talked to her a little bit about the church and the missionaries and everything so when he found out that Elder Fox was working in the area where Gabriela lived, he gave us the reference. When we got there at first she was super quiet and just looked horribly sad and depresed and everything. (But how could you not be after what happened to her...) But since that day that we had that experience with her she has just looked happier and happier every day. She went to church last sunday and loved it and all of the sisters have been so good to her to be her friend and help her feel welcome. Joining the church is absolutely going to change her life, everytime we go to teach her, her face just lights as we talk about Jesus and about the gospel. Her interview was yesterday and she passed with flying colors so today will be her baptism. I feel so blessed to be apart of her conversion and help her totally change her life. 

Do you guys remember Abdiel and Diana? Well Abdiel has a sister named Karla who I was teaching with Elder Farnsworth in Magisterio. She got baptized last week and a couple of her friends went to her baptism. One of her friends lives in our ward and went to church on sunday with Karla. We went to her house and contacted her and she is amazing! We taught her, her sister, and her mom and they are all going to come to church with us tommorrow. They have all been praying and have expressed to us that they have felt the spirit really strong after asking Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon and the church are true. I will keep you guys updated on that!

Yesterday we had a ward activity. We had a talent night and a bunch of people from the ward sang and danced, and the 6 of us that are in the ward did a little skit, it turned out really funny. We acted out that I was directing a movie and there are two actors that do a scene and another misionary is filming. We do the same scene like 5 times but each time I make them re-do it because I didnt like it. But in between the scenes the misionary that is filming keeps trying to tell me something but I never let him talk. At the end the actors do the scene perfectly and we are all excited but then the one who is filming tells us that there isnt film in the camera. (he was trying to tell me the whole time but I would never listen to him.) It turned out good and several investigators came and got to know some of the members. 

Well, thats what went down this week! I will send pictures of the baptism next week and tell you guys all about it! I love you guys and hope that you are enjoying summer vacation!!

Mucho amor, 

Elder Eastmond
