Progress, Albertina, Tarzan, top of Apatzingan

Things are progressing again. It is nuts how quickly you can grow a genuine love for a person. We love Albertina a ton, and she is progressing super well. She is going to be baptized this Saturday after General Conference. She won't be able to be confirmed until the 12th, but it's all really really good.

We have an awesome family - the parents are named Federicko and Maria. This week we had an incredible lesson with the father. We were teaching the plan of salvation and we got to talking about the atonement. He had expressed to us that occasionally he drinks, and that he can get aggressive, and how sometimes he feels like it is destroying his family. We explained that through his faith and the atonement, that he can get rid of the habit of drinking and that Christ will strengthen him in everything. At the end of the lesson, he gave the closing prayer, asking God to help him to quit drinking. It was an amazing experience. He also went to church yesterday.

Every day we are able to see how important and full of truth the messages that we share are. 
At this moment there is honestly nothing that I love more than feeling the spirit in the lessons.

This week we taught a lesson with Tarzan, from the circus. He was a reference. He wants to listen more, buuuut the circus left yesterday, crap.

Today Elder Martinez and I and Elder Matthews and Elder Cardenas walked to the top of APATZINGAN.

I know that Christ has made it possible to return to God's Presence. I know that according to our obedience to the gospel truths, that we will be able to achieve everything that God has, and that he loves every single one of us individually.

Take care of yourselves family.
I love your guts. Lots.
