Baptism in the Works

This week was pretty good. And I have a baptism for this Saturday!!! Her name is Lina and it has been so awesome to watch her progress over this last month and a half. She's a single mom, she has a three year old daughter. She left all her family behind to live alone so her daughter could have a better life and learn good things. We actually had some really hard lessons with her this last week, she went online and looked up all this stuff about the church because she wanted to do family history work. But she found a bunch of anti-Mormon websites so we had a lesson and she was pretty much saying that she didn't want anything to do with the church. And we just bore our testimony of the Book of Mormon and the atonement and that she can know if it's true if she prays. So she did! The next day we came back and she was happy as can be she's planning everything for her baptism. I'm really excited because she actually has a testimony ... she's going to be a convert not just a baptism! We have family home evening with her tonight and are going to watch the restoration so that's is going to be awesome! Haha something kinda funny that happened with my companion, we are studying the other day and I asked him what he learned and he told me he made a decision the night before that will change his life forever. He decided he's going to marry his girlfriend! So now he's planning how to propose through the mail. Kinda cool! Oh and I'm going to a different city on Wednesday to listen to a 70 speak. Which is exciting! A new city which is actually somewhat cooler and a 70! Pretty excited for that Where I am at now the weather doesn't change much, in Bogota it gets cold at times but Who knows if I'll ever go there. There's an Elder, my friend, Elder Douglas here and he only has  6 more weeks in the mission and has never been to Bogota for an area. But that's really uncommon ... but who knows. Hope to get some letters soon  ... lots of letters.  Love you all!
