Another week has passed by here in Bermejo. This week we had intense heat... It reminded me of St. George. Haha, but good news... Looks like I will be coming home with a good tan, and some scars from the mosquito bites, but dont even worry about it. 

This week passed by flying, even faster than the last.Time is really passing as I work and as I study and as I am a missionary of the only true church of God. I dont understand why I was so blessed to be raised in the church when so many others as perishing in confusion. I honestly am so grateful to the Lord for having helped me so much! 

This week, we are working as hard as we can with the branch. Sunday we had a branch council meeting and the Branch President was honest with us when he told us there is so much work to do and not many people willing to do it, but we started making plans and goals to start to improve. Maybe it will take months or years, maybe I will see the fruits of our labors, or maybe not, but I am happy that we are starting to work.  I am happy with this branch and for the Branch President. He is great.. you´ll get to meet him since he will be up there soon. 

We are continuing the work here in Bermejo... We are still teaching Abraham Arce and his wife. We are trying to help Vicente Morales and the youth here in the branch to fight and be strong saints of the Lord. So many people here, well in the world in general, have problems with pornagraphy. It is so sad as I have seen youth being trapped in it´s grasp. The church just did a Mormon Message about porn and I love it, because it is so true. I hope none of us will ever be trapped in it´s grasp. 

Friday, the branch president called us and asked me to prepare a talk on the family. Yesterday, I gave my church talk - my companion then taught the Gospel Principles class. I love teaching and testifying of the truthfulness of this work. I love this church and I love the words of the prophets, both ancient and modern prophets. I have truly been changed because of the church magazines and because of the Book of Mormon. It´s strange, today I recieved a bunch of pictures of friends and people I know and I love. I realized that I have been changed by my mission. The world may be the same as always, but I know look at things through new eyes, a new perspective of things. I love it. 

Well, that´s it for this week. 
I love you all so much and I am so grateful for you all. 

I hope you all are doing well, that you are safe and happy. I pray for you every day. 
I love you!
Until next week...
