Letter from Feb 16...but nothing from Feb 23. Bummer.

Feb. 16, 2015
Hey guys! Well it was a great week. I'm not exactly sure what to write because everything has just become a big blur lately. 
All of the youth in our stake went to EFY this past week and they came back just pumped on everything, it was pretty cool. They all shared their testimonies in church about how it had changed their lives and were coming up to us saying they wanted to go out and work with us because one day they are going to go on missions. Haha it was great!
We met another Adventist that told us we need to go pray to make extra sure what we are teaching is true because if we are teaching blasphemy we are in big trouble with God.
We taught this lesson that was actually pretty sad. It was a nice lady that was pretty old and apparently sick as well and her husband who at the time we came was slightly drunk I think and was kind of a jerk. He was just downing on his wife and saying she wouldn't understand anything we told her and that she wouldn't remember any of it even though she was really nice and all. Turns out the husband is a less active member. I felt really sad for her and that she has to go through that all the time but it is really nice to know that the gospel is for every person that is willing to listen and change.
This past week has been a little tough to find new investigadors for all the summer vacations but we have been trying hard to focus on finding the people that are really going to progress. It is something that has helped a lot and something I wish I would've put into practice sooner because we are here as missinoaries for such a short time. There's no time to waste with people that don't really want to listen or change. 
Oh! best thing ever, probably one of the sweetest moments of my mission. We went to an appointment with the recent convert, Eduardo who got baptized in January and in one of the lessons he shared his testimony of the Book of Mormon and the power it has and then about how the gospel has blessed his life and opened his eyes to all the blessings God is giving him. He said he has felt more grateful and blessed since he was baptized and I could just see that he really has been changed through the Atonement. Man it just made me so happy. I remember when we met Eduardo. He is really quiet and shy but the gospel has given him a different light. Yahooo!
Also, we did a pre-EFY activity with the 12-14 year old youth in the stake and pumped them up to go on missions. It was a lot of fun. I was remembering how spastic youth are. hahah. They were so hard to control and keep their attention! We did a mini iron rod/tree of life activity and it was good stuff. 
I love you guys! Thanks for everything!
See you soon! gah! Time is flying!
