Deodorant anyone?

Oiiiiii family!!! 

How was your week?? Our week here was great! we spent way less time lost and much more time teaching! We have this one investigator- Edivino- and lemme tell you he's fantastic- he's progressing so much! He went to church and best of all last week he was smoking 20 cigarettes per day and as of yesterday he's only smoking 3! It's crazy to see such amazing miracles! He's so excited to get baptized! 

This week we went to follow-up with one of our investigators to find out if she received an answer about the BOM and she did, which is way cool! But she told us that she doesn't want to change religions because her religion doesn't require anything. I immediately thought of the scripture in Luke 6 where the followers of Christ decided that they didn't want to follow anymore and Christ turns back and asks his apostles if they too will leave him and Peter answers and says to whom will we go? You have the words of Eternal Life. Christ has the words of eternal life and only by following Him can we return to live with our Father in Heaven. At times it will be hard to follow him but if you quit you have no where else to go. He is the one. He is the only one. 

This week we celebrated my comp's birthday in our Zone Meeting and it was fantastic! In true missionary fashion no one brought a knife to cut the cake so we made it work... hahaha
