It's a zoo out there!

Hola familia!

So first of all, I have to wish a happy birthday to mom!!! I hope you had a great day even though you were sick! I love you mom and Im greatful for everything you do for me and for those around you! 

I also hope you all had a great day for the 4th of July. We didnt really do anything to celebrate but we listened to the national anthem here in the offices in the morning, haha. I loved all of the great pictures that dad and Parked sent of california. Parker looks so old, its crazy! I hardly even recognized him! The beach there looks really pretty and I liked the picutre of the A's stadium. 

Today for P-day we went to the zoo. The best were the lions and tigers and bears...oh my!! haha the lions were really cool, and they also had this howler monkey who screams really loud...Parker and devin would have loved that one. We also saw a bunch of cool reptiles, scorpions, and snakes!

This week was pretty good, we didn´t find a whole lot of new investigators but we are working alot with Milagros, consuelo, and Katarina. They have been progressing really good, and we had a family home evening with them the other night that turned out to be really really spiritual. We invited the President of the young womens and her counselor, and they invited two young women. So we didnt even say a thing the whole time, they all got to the house and started with a song, a prayer, and then started explaining a little bit about personal progress and about the whole young womens program. It was amazing because they all shared their testimonies and later Milagros and her family just started crying and we could feel the spirit so strong. The next day I went back with Elder Jones, hes an american elder who got her a month and a half ago. He works with us in the ward with his companion, but we did divisions. We taught about the requirments to be baptized from Moroni 6 and then Milagros and consuelo told us about some of the trials that they have noticed in their lives since they started accepting the gospel. They are some tricky things that they are going through but the lesson was really powerful and they ended up accepting baptism. They have a date for the 13th so we are going to be working with them alot this next week. Elder Jones was incredible in the lesson, he is still learing spanish but he spoke so well in the lesson and he has such a pure and powerful testimony, it helped the family a whole lot to make the decision. Milagros and consuelo are just excited as can be to be a part of young womens, we are hoping that everything works out well. ¨Please send some prayers their way, I don´t know why but I have just had the impression that there are going to be a lot of trials this coming week, but the Lord will help them overcome them. 

I am out of time but I love you guys and hope you all have a great week! 

Mucho amor, 

Elder Eastmond
