Hey Everyone!!!

I can´t believe how time flies by... quicker than lighting. I feel like I just wrote one of these yesterday! But here we are — week 2 in Posadas, Misiones.

Posadas is an AWESOME city... the people here are great and the members too. Because of the type of support we have in our ward, our area is the highest baptizing area in the Mission (not to brag or anything), and the work keeps on developing more and more with the help of the members.

Developments with Ana Maria are as follows: She is practically a member already. Her baptism on the 27th of March is going to be awesome... especially because we are super-speed teaching her daughter Agustina to be baptized with her. Agustina is 12 years old, and is super sweet and super innocent. She is very quick to believe and trust our message and is already finding her place in the ward here.

We are in the house house of Familia Pérego almost every day teaching Ana Maria and Augstina (in separate lessons because they have separate needs) , and the new member discussions for her brother Pablo (who got baptized just before I got here) and also to prepare Augustina´s older sister Andrea for baptism too (who has a baptismal date for the 10th of April.) Familia Pérego is all to happy to have us because we are teaching their family and they are getting super close to baptism.

Andrea, the older daughter of Ana Maria, is really awesome too, but she has some doubts about the word of wisdom and the law of chastity that she still has to conquer, so we are working with her separately too.

Cintia, the daughter of the Catholic Priest, we found, still had doubts about the veracity of the Book of Mormon, so we had a good long lesson and showed her that if she REALLY believes in the Bible, she believes in the Book of Mormon also, because the doctrine is the same, and we re-committed her to pray to know if it is true. Both Hermana Loria and I felt that maybe she needed a little more time, so we changed her baptismal date for the 17th of April, with the promise that her member-boyfriend, Hugo could baptize her.

The moral of this little letter is that you got to help the missionaries... because we did like 50 contacts this week, going door to door and in the calles, and we did not even get one person who maybe would be interested, but when the members get involved, miracles happen.

In other, non-missionary-work related news, Hermana Loria and I are trying to move to a different apartment... the one we have is really dark and danky and a little dangerous, and we found an apartment that we really like, all we have to do now is go through the red tape with the mission to find out if we really can make the change.
If we can it would be better for all the misioneras that come, because this apartment is relatively new, and there is not so much damage and mold and stuff. That, and it is in the dead-center of our area.

Fingers crossed!

Love ya all so much and thanks for your letters and love.
