Well, no mucho para decir.......(Well, not much to say...)

(August 12, 2013 email)
Hey everybody!!! It’s always so good to hear from you every week!!! I love reading all of your emails! And dad to answer one of your questions the internet here in Juliaca is extremely slow, so that’s why I haven’t had time to write big emails, but think today it should be pretty decent. I am learning how to work around the internet and get things done faster! So we will see how things go.
And yes dad like said last week there are missionaries that work on the floating islands, they had closed that sector but opened it this change, and that is the sector of Lori Bailey's nephew. He works there. Also I am so glad to hear that Ashley was able to find a new person to take care of Karson. That will be such a relief for her! And haha! Mom has to go back to work!! Haha, I have no clue where these months went I remember you writing me about how much time you had left in school to start the summer and now you are ending it! How weird! The time is absolutely flying by!
I really hope everything goes well with Zac's eagle papers, I can’t believe he is 18 I still think of him as one of the little’s like Ali and I call them. But that’s awesome, now he has to finish school and he can go on the mission! 
So honestly this week nothing happened, so Monday and Tuesday were good, and then Wednesday after our district meeting we got back to the room and my comp was way sick with a high fever and chills and body aches, and so we called Hna. Harbertson, and she said for him to rest, so we were in the room all day long!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was absolutely the most boring day of my life! But I had the chance to read like 30 chapters in the book of Mormon. So that was good.
Then Thursday he was still sick so we called the Hna. Harbertson again and she said to go buy some medicine so we did but we were still in the room ALL DAY LONG!!!!!! So I had the chance to write mom and dad each separate letters which I haven’t done in a while, so I will be sending those soon!!!! Be excited they are quite long from being stuck in the room.  So Friday he felt a little better, but we only worked for about 2 hours nothing more and then he had to go back to the room. Saturday we worked all morning long, and the entire after noon he was in the room, and Sunday we went to church and one appointment and after he was sick so we went back to the room. So needless to say, we didn't do a whole lot this week, so we have got to work hard this week to make up for it. 
But I do have an awesome experience!!! So this morning we were sitting in the room getting ready to go to the zone meeting and one of our investigators Ana Maria, that would not accept a baptismal date or anything called us this morning and said, "elders I want to get baptized this Saturday!" let’s just say while talking on the phone I  was jumping up and down in the room freaking out in my mind while trying to talk to Ana Maria. And it’s not even that I am excited that I will have my first baptism in Juliaca, it’s the fact that Ana Maria is getting baptized! She has had such a change in her life from the things we teach, and she always attends church, and listens to the lessons, and reads the Book of Mormon, but now she is understanding what more she needs to do to receive blessings!!!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As a missionary it’s such a blessing when someone decides to get baptized because you can see the spirit working within them! I love being a servant of the lord and helping people change their lives for the better!!!!! So that is my cool story for the week! I love you all so much, I am so looking forward to hearing from you next week! Dad and mom I hope you like this email better then the other weeks!
I love and miss you! Hope you are all doing good, , and let me know if I can help you in some way at all!!!! I pray for each and every one of you every day!! Keep moving forward!!!! 
PS. I now have to where my CTR ring on my wedding finger because its different in Peru and I didn’t know that until last week, so everyone has been thinking that I am married!!! Ahhhhh!!!!
