Hey family!

Welp we got pulled out of Victorias last week! Got moved to Caduha-an, we're white washing here too! Crazy huh? Haha. But Elder Pineda and I are still companions and the Zone Leaders here in Cadiz zone, Victorias is actually in the same zone as ours. Last week was great though, it's so much fun white washing because you have no idea what you're doing, I've really learned a lot about agency lately, and learning to be one who acts and is not acted upon. We've found some pretty solid investigators, and the branch is great. Even though there's less than 100 active members, they are all so willing to work and help the missionary efforts. Especially our branch President! President Lapid, he's so humble and great. The stake president is in our branch as well, so we're excited about that.

We're really focusing on the Book of Mormon here in Caduha-an, trying to get the entire branch reading and studying in the Book. We had an amazing experience with one brother. We asked President what members of the branch we needed to focus on for re activation, and he told us to help his son, who is a returned missionary who has been less active for years. The first time we visited over there, we shared the Book of Mormon with him, and gave him a reading chart too to check off as he goes. The second time we came back, he was almost done with 1 nephi 1, and he shared with us all the things he learned. He also said he was so happy to be reading in the Book of Mormon again, because he had been studying in other books than the Book of Mormon the last couple of years, and he also came to church for the first time in a long time on sunday. I have such a testimony of the power of the Book of Mormon. I know its true, because i've seen its effect on the lives of others, and especially mine. That Book changed my life! I'm so happy youre reading as a family too, keep up the awesome work fam :) I'll keep working hard, and eating rice. I love you all so much.
