The language for some reason this week really picked up! Something clicked and I just don't even have to translate basic conversation, it just is understood, it's hard to explain. But the speaking still needs lots of work. But, lots and lots of progress this week.
So we arrived at church to find one of our investigator families the Camachos, cleaning! They all had brooms and stuff and were just going to work. What do you even do when you find your investigators a half hour early to church before you and even the members get there and find them cleaning... Just so cool. I love them. Big family. The spirit is always really strong when we gather together and they all pull out their mga Aklat Ni Mormon and we read. So powerful. We have lots to do this week. Lots of people to visit. It just comes down to if people will actually do the commitments. Lots of people are too shy to say no so we just have lots of people who say yes but don't do anything.

Ryan agreed to be baptized this week. We have lots of work to do with him but the desire is there and he is curious. We will help him turn that curiosity into faith.
Dexter, one of our favorite teenagers around here, didn't come to church so we will hunt him down today and see what he is up to. He is doing really well but church attendance is still super hard.
My new comp and I climbed Mt. Tapias today for exercise. It was beautiful!!

You asked last week about baptisms in the ocean, Yes we usually baptize in the ocean here...But not anymore, We have a blue tub on the side of our church... NOT quite the same but it's a baptism still :) Heavenly Father knows what he is doing and we just need to figure it out and get on board. I love being a missionary, it's really hard but that's the beauty of it, and part of what makes the reward so great.Love Elder Roberts
