Our investigators daughter

We found a secret path 

Erikas kids. They love frozen. every time I go to there house I just want to watch frozen. 

herman piedra santa, the menos activa who is now active!!! woot woot just took ironing her clothes and cleaning her house

Well, by the time that everyone gets this email, my brother Austen will be engaged!!! CONGRATS!!! I may not knwo your future wife, but im still excited for ya! 
So, last night, as we were waiting for our district leader to call about changes when President calls and called me as a sister leader. I was in shock and couldnt sleep all through the night!!! Im super scared and nervous, but I have been praying a lot to develop more love in everything that I do and i feel like this was an answer. I am excited to help support other Hermanas!! So I have transfers tomorrow so we will see where i go!
So, as everyone knows, i always get talked to in the street, normally its a hey baby and thats about all the English that they know, but this week i was impressed by the creativity. So a lto say canche which means blonde person. Well, they used canche and another word, grandota, which means giant, and put them together. Canchota. I was impressed. hahaha 

So about 3 months ago i shared a sotry about a man named Froilan, he was in a serious accident and had a crazy cast thing for awhile. We taught him for a little bit and he was just so humble and ready to accept the gospel. It broke our hearts when we found out that he moved, BUT we tracked him down and he was in the area of the hermanas of centro, hermana woods and Bingham. they found him and HE GOT BAPTIZED! I WAS SO EXCITED FOR THEM!!! 

So i said we were going to have a baptism with a man named Domingo, well, satan got a hold of him and he did some things he shouldnt so we moved the date. He is still trying, but when someone tries to change their life COMPLETELY its pretty tough. He has a lot of repentance to do, but the Lord is with him and helping him. It has made me think a lot about the atonement and how Jesus has really felt Every pain, every sadness, EVERYTHING. In sunday school someones said something relaly powerful, when Jesus was suffering in the garden of gethsemene our Heavenly Father had to distance himself from Him to stop from helping with the pain. Not only Jesus was suffering, but our Father in Heaven as well. Every time we feel pain, he is saddened as well, but he knows what is best for us
Also, one of our cute investigators named Rosio took the faith as Esther did and came to church not really caring what her husband said. He is super not interested in hearing from us so really doesnt like us talkiing to her but she wants to find the true church and is doing everything she can to be able to come to church!
Also, Amalia and Glenda read not only the intro but the testimonies and highlighted. 

They are praying to find the true church as well. Im sad to leave all these people, but I feel like I have completed my work here in Los Arcos, this was a great four and a half months!! 
love you all!!
con amor
hermana thompson
