The Happiest Time of My Life

Hey, Family!

This is the last week of President Robertson's mission! We will be getting President Resek in the coming week. It has been great to have almost 2 years with Pres. Robertson, I have learned so much from him. 
We had a great week! We continue to see miracles every day while finding new people. We had a long list of people to go visit that the missionaries had previously contacted. As we were trying to find all of these people we felt impressed to knock on a door. We knocked (or more accurately 'clapped') at the door and a woman about 40 came out. We explained that we are missionaries and asked if she would like to hear a message about Jesus Christ. She said "yes" so we taught her the message of the restoration right there on her doorstep. She told us that was currently attending a Christian (in Spanish 'Evangelista') church because she liked what was taught but was not convinced that it is the true church. She also said she has been praying and looking to join the true church. We promised her that if she read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true God would tell her where she needs to go. It felt like such a perfect lesson. The woman's name is 'Miracles' in English! 
We had the confirmation of our investigator S. yesterday and I was privileged to confirm her. She is 23 and her husband G. is 27, he was confirmed last week. The have one little boy. On Saturday E. will be baptized. He is 28 and his wife C. is a member. She had always been praying for E. to accept the gospel but for 2 years he met with the missionaries and didn't want to join the church. We taught him and for some reason he was more prepared. He has quit smoking and is very excited to be baptized. Elder Lopez will baptize him and I will do the confirmation.

I have 10 weeks left to work as hard as I can! This has been the happiest time of my life!
