January 18, 2016 -- The Lord really has people so prepared!

Hi everyone! 

It was another really good week. 

Kiana got another nametag!
Jose is so incredible!!! We're teaching him in the Bishop's house so that's great, because the people he lives with really are not a good influence on him at all. This week President and Hermana Hayes came to teach with us! haha, it was kind of crazy, it was President and Sister Hayes, my companion and I, the Bishop, the Bishop's son who got home from his mission, all of us teaching him haha. I was kind of worried that he wouldn't want to like talk a lot because there were so many of us, but it went really really well, and he accepted a fecha to get baptized the 29th! We asked him how he felt during the lesson, and he said, Marvelous!! And oh man. He is working for that goal so hard! We invited him to the baptism of an 8 year old on Saturday, and before he decided he wanted to read about baptism in the Book of Mormon. So he looked in the guide about baptism, and foudn Mosiah 17 and 18, and read them all by himself! And he loved the baptism, and said that every time he is tempted to do something bad, he just thinks about that goal. He's seriously such a miracle!! I don't know. It's so so cool. The Lord really has people so prepared! 

We're also teaching Ricardo, his girlfriend Karen got baptized back in June when they weren't living together, and now they have a baby of two months, and they're such a cute family. He came to church two Sundays ago, but last Sunday he went back to his old Evangelical church, but he said they were just asking for money. Karen yelled from the other room, that's your sign!! Haha. So he came to church again yesterday, and really loves it!! And, he said, ÿo me bautizo, yo me caso." (I'll get baptized, I'll get married!) But, we just have to convince Karen, because she says she wants a wedding on the beach, something super fancy. But we explained that getting sealed in the temple is a million times better than any wedding ever could be. So hopefully we can see them get married and see Ricardo's baptism in February!! Haha, I don't know anything about planning a wedding. But I'm excited to see how it goes! 

Anyway. Being a missionary is the greatest. I love you guys all a whole lot and thanks for everything! 

Love, Hermana Moon
