hello family!
so this was a busy, long week. Last monday we had family home evening with some members and we invited a less active family and then another family came and brought their sister thats from the DR.  She's only going to be here for a little bit but we are teaching her for now.  Tuesday we had a training meeting in Ponce on the south side of the island.  we drove past some wind turbines, i thought id mention that for dads sake.  Wednesday we went on splits with the sisters in Humacao.  Thats not too far from our area. I worked with a new sister from Honduras for the day.  It was really nice.  We visited one of her investigators 

so I learned that I  need to invite everyone that we teach to be baptized to give them the opportunity to choose.  

so we are visiting her.  we left her a pamphlet to read and she told her cousin she liked it a lot so we are visiting her and sharing more and then we will refer them to the sisters in St. Thomas.  This week we also visited a member that has been inactive for a few years.  She was really into family history work and had done a ton.  We talked to her and invited her to the temple night where the members do family history work and she came!  She said that she felt the spirit as soon as she entered the chapel again.  We went to help her the next day at her house with an older lady that is living in the back part of her house.  And when we were moving the stuff we started talking to the lady.  We mentioned that she could look for her ancestors and she told us that she has been looking for a way to trace her ancestors for decades.  It really is amazing how Heavenly Father is preparing the hearts of the people around us.  And puts the right people in your path.  On Tuesday night we are going to take both of them to family history night.  We also have a baptismal date on the 28th that we are working for.  She's been going to church for years we just have to help her with a few trials before.  Yesterday was stake conference and everyone got a preach my gospel. The church is really focusing on getting members to do missionary work and finding people to teach.  So my suggestion is that you guys get a preach my gospel too and start studying a little section for family home evening and pray about someone you can invite the missionaries to teach!  Well thats all for this week.  But thank you for the birthday packages i can't wait!  Crazy that im turning 20!  Love to all!
