Hiya! This week was a pretty good week. Pretty average week actually. There was an earthquake at around 5am on Wednesday (I think, I don't remember the exact day.) I was woken up by my bed shaking back and forth. That was pretty cool!

This Saturday was the national day of service. Our stake went to a Special Education center in San Martin. It is basically just a big compound for adults with mental disabilities. We painted the houses. And we played with the people that lived there. I had a ball! There are a couple of them that love soccer, and we had a pretty wild game of soccer going with them! It was really fun! We also had a couple piñatas. That was crazy! I had a really, really, great time!

The weather here is starting to get colder. This morning it was 67 degrees when we woke up. Cold! We don't have any other clothes than shirts and t-shirts, and we only have sheets for our beds. But during the day it is 70s, which is perfect! We can work all day! When it's hotter we have to take breaks every once in a while. But right now we just go, go, go, all day! I love it!

We have an eternal investigator named Sandra. The missionaries have been visiting her for over a year, she knows everything. She even pays tithing! Her whole family are members, she has a grandson named José Smith! She never got baptized because she wasn't married to her husband (or boyfriend I guess). They have been together for 16 years, but the whole time he has been married to a woman in Nicaragua. She really wanted him to get the divorce so they could get married, but he never did.

Last Sunday she came up to us and told us she wants to get baptized! We visited her later in the week, and it turns out that her husband left her, for another woman. She was understandably pretty upset. He was the one in the family who worked too, so now she has to find a job.

It's interesting. This is a really big trial that she has to go through, but there is also a blessing that came along with it. (she can get baptized now!)

If you could pray for her that would be really nice. She needs it.

Have a great week!
