Hi Family and Friends,

So, what to say. This last week was good. It was more normal than anything. But things are going good here in Israel. I got discouraged yesterday, because a lot of investigators we are teaching said that they were going to come to church, but in the end never came. It was sad. Only had 1 investigator person there. Which I am sure he is coming to church for his girlfriend, which is so good. But it was alright.

This upcoming week will be better I hope. But as for things with my companion, they are great. We get along really well and are having a good time together. haha 

Umm, super weird and amazing experience and fact...On last Tuesday night I woke up at about 2am in the morning. I had a really bad feeling that someone was in the hospital or in bad shape. The truth is I actually started to cry knowing that someone in the family was suffering, so I got down on my knees and started to pray ferverently that everyone in the family is good and being protected, and that there was nothing wrong healthwise in the family, and that everyone is doing great. I know I received inspiration big time after reading the emails I got from some of you all this morning.

With the passing away of Uncle Robert from his terrible accident last Monday night, and also with hearing how Grandpa fell, and suffered a bleed in his brain that morning I had the inspiration I knew the Lord blessed me to add my prayers for our cousins and all of us, and prayers for Grandpa to be protected and saved and I did it without knowing what was happening at home. The Lord woke me straight up out of my sleep. When I was reading the letters this morning I became super thankful for Heavenly Father "waking me up" at 2 in the morning to pray for you all and to help Grandpa, it was an amazing experience. I hope somehow you all felt more comfort, too. I will keep praying for you!

I hope that everyone is doing ok and no one is ill now. I know this church is true and God loves us. We have always got to be ready to listen to the spirit when it comes, even if it is at 2 in the morning for our family on the otherside of the world!! This was a Super huge testimony builder to my life. I hope it is a testimony builder for all of you, too. I Love the Gospel, I know it is true.

And please. Grandpa, come on, please don't fall every again!! :) I Love you all.

Weird, 15 days. 2nd to last email. Still time left to change the world here in my Cali Colombia! 

Love you all. ttyl
