Hey Everyone!
   We ended up eating out with our Korean investigator this week and at a Korean restaurant too. It was really good and he was nice enough to not buy the super spicy food. It was still spicy though, but so good. He loves talking with Americans, but doesn´t speak any english and He doesn´t understand spanish much either. My companion has to do a lot of translating. He came to church this Sunday, and a baptism. That was awesome! Especially since he told us that he wasn´t going to come to church this week.
     I was on exchanges this week with Hermana Wiseman. We knocked a buiding where one of our investigators lives, and found four other investigators to teach in the same building. At one door we knocked, a Peruvian lady opened the door. She was really nice and we set up a return visit with her. Then before we left we asked if we could pray with her. She then invited us into her house! Never had that happen before. Now she has a baptismal date for the 23rd of this month and has already come to church this week. 
    We also met a lady from the Phillipines who speaks English and lives in that same building. She wasn´t very interested when we were talking with her at the door, but she said that we could pass by any time. We left her with a prayer and then went. The next day we were by that building and she was coming home with her three sons. She invited us in so of course we followed. Her sons have autism, but are the sweetest boys ever! She told us that after we had said a prayer with her the day before she had just felt a sense of calm the rest of the day. Power of prayer is amazing! We are now teaching her and her sons. 
   We also have another family that we teach that live in the same building. We call this building "the Building of Miracles" because of how many people we have found. We even figured out that a les active member works at there as well. We visit him as well. I love the relationship that I have with my investigators. It´s as if I´ve known them forever! 
   We still talk to almost everyone on the street. Lots say no, but some say yes! I love being able to share my testimony with everyone on the street. It´s cool to see the change in people. At first many people say no, but as we are a little persistent and share our testimony, they start to listen and then some accept it. 
   I found a cool quote this week while reading a talk called "The

Fourth Missionary" by Lawrence E. Corbridge-
  "The purpose and central blessing of life is change. It is to be changed to become more like Jesus Christ. It is to incorporate into your character, the qualities of His character. It is to move from one degree of intelligence and capacity to the next, and from there to the next, until you see God face to face adn know Him as He knows you."
   I love that we have the ability to become more like our Saviour, Jesus Christ, everyday. We are here to progress in this life. I can´t force my investigators to progress against there will, but I can be progressing and putting my will in line with the will of our Heavenly Father. 
   The mission is so great!
