Politics and River Monsters

Yeah another South American brother!!! (referring to Brian Hayden's mission call). From when I got to Puerto I have been teaching this person Jocelyn, and she was always like " I don't want to get baptized", and we had a talk with her and I just asked her directly some questions, Like did you receive an answer, she said she has an answer that it's true. I asked what do you think God wants you to do with that answer. she was like get baptized. So we put a date for June 27th. If we can we'll move it forward, and all. But its real good progress for her.

Another family we were teaching forever I think they have been listening for 2 years now. We pretty much did the same thing. We asked them if they have an answer. They said they both do. So we were like do something with it!!  Get married, then baptized!! The girlfriend has a lot of fear of marriage, but I feel like its gone down. Now were just working on getting their papers in order, to marry them in the end of JUNE!! 

Yeah so we lost Eduardo again. I don't know if he should get baptized while he has this job because it's very uncertain. maybe it's better for the future.  Melvin is doing awesome!! we found out yesterday he went and did visits to MA(less active) kids in the Primary with the presidency!!! I think he'll be ready, we just have to wait.

This photo is a noche de hogar (Family Home Evening) we did last night in a community on the highway to Brazil, where some members live. we are trying to help them out, they just got electricity a little bit ago!!! A very exciting day.

Sounds like the work is progressing in the house. FYI I broke a sprinkler by the fence line to Lang Lake, you should probably just measure the pipe and cap it off.

So this week, we have a new investigator Arturo, He's pretty cool guy. When we were working on the jardin (garden) a guy started talking to me and said we could come by and visit him. After a while we went by. and he was like yeah I've been waiting for you guys!!!  We visited and he described his beliefs, he said one night he had this dream, where he was in this big field, and all the people were wearing white clothes, and a voice told him it was el cielo terrenal (Heaven on Earth). After he went and bought a Bible and began to study (about) God. We talked about his faith, and he wants a way to show his faith to God, we talked about repentance. He gave the closing prayer to the lesson. MUY BIEN (very well).  I feel like he could progress, and maybe open the doors to his family!!!

We went and visited a family, and the Dad is pretty much a communist. He'll be friendly for a bit and then he starts hating on the US of A. He started to say all this crap about the CIA and how we are crazy capitalists. I started to engage him, and explain how he was wrong. Then I was thinking, and realized that's bad. So when he let me talk. I said were not here to talk about polotics (politics), the CIA, world domination, were here to talk about God, and how through Jesus we can all be saved. I testified some more, and he couldn't respond. So we got our stuff, set a return visit and left.

Today we're going to go fishing for river monsters in el rio madre de dios. Yesterday a kid by our pension (where we have our meals) caught the funkiest looking fish I have ever seen. I went and bought some gear, and we're gonna go fishing, until we go to play soccer with the zone.

I'm trying my best it hasn't been too hot lately, lots of clouds and rain. 

Hows the fam? big summer plans?? tell me.
