Hey so this week was kinda weird. Our dueno came Tuesday and told us that he wanted to start renovando the house and brought his workers and they just started cutting out the front windows of our house. It was OK but we have all our stuff there and all the churches stuff and at night they just left the windows and our house open to the world. The next day they told us they were just getting started so we decided we better find a new house and meanwhile that they were working on then house we were there to make sure nothing of ours or the church got lost or broken. We found a house Thursday that was big enough for our stuff and temporarily the churches and got everything moved in. We lost a lot of time this week dealing with house problems. Buut we had sacrament there yesterday and it went awesome, Marialuisa and her kids came and it was awesome! There a family that we have been teaching and they're really amazing. They want to get baptized they're just waiting for there dad and he's been studying the book of Mormon to know if this is the true church of God. I love this family. We're going to visit them today and teach what is and how to do family home evenings and schedule one, its going to be great! I love it here, the branch here in Pueblo Nuevo is really special, I've grown so much with them. I love you guys back home, have a great week!

So this week we had sacrament meeting at our house. We got all the chairs and podium and a table did everything in the first floor of our place. It was a little cramped and took a lot of time to set up but it was nice and by next week ojala well have a new place meet. We found a couple of places we just need to get them approved by the church maintenance guys. If not well probably just go find a different house for ourselves and give them the one we live in to use.
Maribel and Omar are awesome. They want to know more about the plan of salvation and if they can really be a family forever. Were going to visit them and teach them more about the book of Mormon and show them how they can learn Gods plan through prayer and study. Needless to say we are super excited. Right now were looking for more members that can accompany us to visit them, we're hoping to find someone who can play with their little daughter while were teaching so we can teach more clearly. They're amazing.
Our districts working really hard. We've all been having kind of a hard time finding people who are willing to come to church on Sunday. A lot of people here are really nervous about going to a "Mormon" church because of things they've heard but were trying to explain to them the importance of church and specifically the sacrament. We just need patience, I know they'll will come.
Yesterday we taught in Sunday school the story of Nephi and the plates of brass. What I loved was Nephis courage and his faith in the Lord. Just his complete confidence that God would deliver him. And how when his brothers and he had been rejected he knew still what he must do and without doubt nor fear he followed the Holy Ghost.
This applies to all of us constantly. The Lord is always telling us to be of good cheer and to fear not. That he will deliver us from any evil and temptacion. That he will show us what we need to do. We might not know where we will be tomorrow or today in the afternoon by right now if we follow him we will be ok. We must look to him in all things. We must mediate on the things of our Lord. We need to pray always and if we do so we will always have his Spirit to be with us, I know this is true. I just wanted to invite you mom, dad, sol, katie, madi, and justin, and everyone else to pray always. To keep praying daily as a family and personally so you to can have the guide of the Spirit. I know praying sincerally daily changes lives. I know The Saviour lives and he loves us. I invite you all to show your love and faith to God by by always remembering them in the name of Jesus Christ amen.

Feliz Año Nuevo!!!!!!!!
Orali you guys look like you are freezing! Put another coat on! Last night got really breezy and I think I got a cold, I cant imagine what it's going to be like when I come home, I don't even want to think about it haha.
You guys did balloons that's awesome! Here the branch president and their family invited us to eat at 7 at night then we went to our house to finish our studies and we were out by 10. We didn't sleep long though because all night long they do fireworks here and they were right outside our house (obviously). But it was awesome, we had a really new years and we made some awesome plans to help the branch 2016.
Something really strange happened yesterday at church and I think we're going to have to find a new chapel. The Landlord came and said he wanted to move in that same day and that we need to find a new place to meet. Well it's his house but now we don't know where to go, today we're going to spend all day taking stuff out of the church and bringing it to our house for right now. We don't really know exactly what we're going to do but I know the Lord will take care of us. I think we'll have to take a truck to the nearest church for the next couple weeks until we get something more comfortable figured out.
Yeah we´re on the same schedule! My companion and I are teaching Sunday school right now about the Book of Mormon and I love it, we are learning so much. The Book of Mormon has changed my life so much, this last year I really got a testimony that this book is the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ and is written exactly for us in these days. That we need to be studying and applying it daily in our lives and that it does bring us closer to Christ. I'm so happy to be a part of this church. I encourage you guys to invite other people to church and church activities so they can also grow closer Christ. I know the Lord will bless you as you do it. When we help people understand the gospel we are working side by side with the Lord and we grow closer to him by doing so. Keep praying, keep reading, keep participating church activities and the Lord will always be part of our lives. I know these things are true and I say them in the name of Jesus Christ amen!
