e aí peeps beleza pura??!! (that literally means pure beauty haha but everyone says it like "what's up" here)

Is everybody doing good out there in MURICA??!

Este "peruano louco" and I had an awesome week this week! We were super blessed to have everything work out well with Etefans (easier than estevão haha) baptism which was a super incredible experience!!! A member named Gleidilson haha who is an awesome guy that looks like he could be a rapper with dreads baptized him! He became really good friends with estevão and helped us out a lot to teach him and help fellowship him in the ward so it was way cool!!! haha this guy is such an awesome member, he's so funny and there's another guy in the ward who looks just like him haha!!! the ward is full of these guys with dreads and it's awesome haha! Estevão was so happy, and it was really cool to see how he truly changed.

I think I totally forgot to talk about someone also these last couple weeks, o grande GABRIEL!!!! Gabriel is a lil youngster that's 9 years old and we have been teaching. His mom is a less active member of the church and is grandma is an active member that takes him to church every sunday. He was supposed to be baptized when he turned 8, but due to bunch of health problems that he had, he wasn't able to be baptized until now... His mom was really worried and wanted to wait a little bit, a bunch of missionires tried to talk her into it and the bishop and primary president, but he never got baptized. We visited him on my first week here and got to know them a little better and talked about his baptism and it was a miracle that she said YES! He was also baptized yesterday and it was way cool cause his mom - Diana, and grandma  -Maria de Lourdes both bore thier testimonies and talked about his story and everything and how he always had health problems and that its a miracle that hes alive and was baptized and everything it was way cool! They both were super happy with the baptismal service and It was truly an awesome day! Heavenly Father blessed us so much with these two people and it was incredible. Gosh, I truly do just love this work. I know that it is HIS work and he is in command! I am so grateful, and just love my mission so much.

Thanks guys so much for your love and support!
