Week 53

Hi Everyone!
Well this week we went to the airport and a very lost looking kid from Equador came through the door...without any bags! To start off this poor guys mission -the airline lost BOTH of his bags!! But his name is E Carillo and he is incredible! He got taken from the MTC after only 2 weeks of learning English and he actually learned quite a bit! But it is SO NICE to be able to speak Spanish all day. I really did miss it! But we still teach in all three languages so we both have work to do!
We have been having so much success contacting which is good because we needed to get more people to teach! But the best thing that happened this week (besides finding a huge hidden cave on the south tip of the island) was this! We were going to go contacting but then I felt like it would be better to visit a really old member who is very lonely and lives in the area. So we went and visited with her for a while and afterwards as we were walking back home, a man came up to us and told us that he had received lessons from other missionaries and wasn't ready to quit drinking, but now he wants to and he showed us where he lives and told us to come by this week! Also the old member was very grateful that we stopped by because she is very lonely (28 cats lonely).
 It just goes to show how much good you can do if you listen to the spirit. It’s very important and I love having E Carillo who helps keep the spirit with us so well!
