Hey everyone!! Had an awesome week this week! But this email is going to have to be kind of short cause we didn't have power all morning so I couldn't write but now the powers on so I have a couple minutes! So this week Marta committed to be baptized!! AND so did ISAAC the plan is on the 30th of this month. They have to attend sacrament 3 Sundays and they have already been twice so I'm feeling good about their baptisms! Marta and her daughter want to be baptized more than anything. We had a lesson with them yesterday after church just to check up and see if they had any questions for us. The question the daughter asked was when can I get baptized? She's only nine years old, but she already knows this church is true. The holy ghost has already testified to her this is the thing she needs to do in her life! I thought that was really cool!!! Also Isaac is doing awesome as well! We had lessons with his whole family but they all stopped listening. But he always wanted to hear more. He's 15. He wants to be baptized too. He said that when he reads the BOM he feels this peace come over his whole body. He said it was a feeling he's never felt before. He loves learning about the Holy Ghost. Whenever we share scriptures about the Holy Ghost he says "That's it! That's the feeling I get!" Its really special to be teaching him. We asked his parents if he could be baptized and they said yes. But about a month ago they said "I don't want Isaac to have lessons with those Mormons, they are bad people" or something like that. But we kept on pushing and now he is going to be baptized. How cool is that! And now we're trying to have lessons with his parents again! But they keep on saying no. But were not going to give up until we feel like we've done all we can. This week I also had the opportunity to go on splits with the Zone Leader. I learned a lot of new ways to teach. And I can't wait to use those new skills. He only has 3 months left in his mission but he's awesome. He also helped me a lot with my Spanish. So no really cool stories this week. Just the power stinks here. Well I love you guys! I'll see you in 7 days!!!!
Love Elder Hess
