Wow I love this scripture so much! Especially with the last transfer, and the difficulties that still remain in a lifeless area, the Lord has heard my cries and has blessed Tanques with a new sense of spirit. For a long time, the missionaries here haven't baptized and lots of the people in Tanques have been rejecting and even some of the members went cold, causing a little crisis for the missionaries and the tiny little branch. But once again, our loving Heavenly Father is softening the heart of the people in Tanques, Boscoso and Potrerillos to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And it's a wonderful work that Elder Navarro and I are a part of here!

After teaching a man that Elder Cuevas and I found named Jaime, we put a baptismal date for him for 1 of October and we are super excited for him because he is always really happy and smiling and it's cool to see him change even with his busy schedule. We also put a baptismal date for a man named Adrian that arrived here suddenly from Mexico City to find work and members of the church accepted him into their home and we are now teaching him! Adrian is amazing! There is no doubt that God sent him here so that we could teach and help him change his life of drugs and alcohol. He will be baptized 24 of September!
This week we had divisions with the Elders of La Cruz and I was with Elder Ayala again. This was probably the 4th time we have done divisions together because he watched me learn and grow starting out in Teacapan and now he is about to leave. So it was a good experience to work alongside him again and find new people to teach.

For P-day today we went to a playa called Celestino which is about 30 minutes from La Cruz and there we took lots of pictures Elder Ayala, McClellan, Navarro and I together with the sea and the cool scenery. We ate fried fish which we fried up over a fire with oil, I loved it! Today we are moving houses to a smaller house because the house we are in is not ours anymore haha.
All this week we had our investigators committed to go to church on Sunday and it turned out that none of them came...That was a little test of faith and patience because going to church our investigators are going to learn and expanding their faith in Christ. But something that I read was that Heavenly Father is always blessings us but it's our pride, fear, and sin that stops us from a fullness of blessings. I know that God loves us and that we will have success in Tanques and we will have baptisms! I know the church is true!
