Man those pictures of Elder Ochs in Concepcion are so beautiful!!!! I am just a bit jealous.

Hey so DAD Happy happy Father`s Day!!! I love you!!!!!

Ok, this weekend was so crazy. I am learning so much about the importance of following the whispers of the spirit!!! All this week we have been preparing Bruni and Cielo for there Baptism. Well as we have been working with her the opposition has been working too. She has had a lot of trials and temptations. The Devil is trying to scare her and bring her down. Saturday we went to teach the daughter and the mom was inside cleaning when her old preacher from church comes to talk with her. We didn´t know what they talked about but it counldn`t have be positive. We asked her if she was ok and she said "yes", so we left it at that. Then on Sunday morning at 5 am I woke up really scared and knew that there wasn`t something right but I said a prayer to God for protection and went back to bed. So later we were getting ready for church and we called Bruni to remind her of her baptism interview after Church and she was saying "no we are not going today because we are going to visit family." I told her "Well, we were going to announce your baptism today in church it would be good if you came." Then she was saying, "it´s just that Cielo is not ready and I am not ready yet." I knew something was wrong and I persisted until she finally said, "Ok, we will come to church but I am not ready." So she came to church and I tried asking what was up and she said she was scared and frustrated. Then it hit me that this was not God but Satan working against her. She explained later that the preacher was warning her that she was getting into something bad and said all kinds of bad things about the church. Bruni said that she went to bed scared and woke up at 5am Sunday morning really scared. We took her into a room and talked and shared with her the importance of prayer and fasting. And also that Satan is going to try to scare you, but God will guard you and keep you safe. I told her that even Joseph Smith had been attacked by this evil force when he was looking for God the most.

So we are fasting for Bruni, Cielo and Bruno. We talked with the Bishop and we are going to have a Family Home Evening this morning. We called Bruni this morning to invite her and we found out that she has no food for her or her children. We are planning on donating our fast money to buy her food!!!!! Man this is a pretty crazy fight but I know we will win!

I know that the more we know of the Gospel and feel the love that Christ has, the more we see the needs of people and we can serve them!!!! We are Christain Solders Marching off to War against the Evil one!!!!!!!

Man I love you guys so so much and remember to Never Never Doubt and Always Always Pray!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please pray for us and Bruni and her family!!!
