Helo everyone! Wow I can´t believe how fast time is flying! It is now almost August, we have changes this week, and I have been here in Copan Ruinas for 6 months. We still don´t know what will happen, but most likely I will be leaving, but the Lords will be done!

The big news of this week is we had a Baptism here in Copan Ruinas!!! His name is José Aroldo Ramirez Rodriguez! We don´t have any pictures because he asked that we don´t take any, but Elder Hurtado and I were verry excited! He is a great guy, and really has such a great desire to follow Christ! The truth is this week was a crazy one. We decided to visit him every day this week to help be preapared to make this big step in his life. Starting with Monday we had a family night with Him and a member family. It was great, and He was verry excited. Then Tuesday when we came he wasn´t there and we had to go to another appointment, so we weren´t able to meat with him. Then Wednessday we passed by Famila Hernandez, and they told us that he wanted to talk to us, becuase he had some doubts. We were able to talk to him, and He told us that he had had a hard week. He told us he did´t feel super good, as well he hadn´t slept becuase he had had nightmares, and many people were telling him not to go through. He told us he wasn´t sure. We encouraged him to keep reading and praying. Then Thursday again, we passed by and he wasn´t there. Friday in the morning we called Familia Hernandez, and they told us that thursday in the night Aroldo brought all the books and told them he didn´t want to go through with it. My Companion and I were devistated. We prayed alot that morning, and then in the afternoon, after an appointment we prayed as a companionship asking God to help us find him, and to help him feel in his heart the truth, and to not fall into satan traps. We went looking for him, and ran into Jesus, the son of Julian. He told us that Aroldo came back and said he made a mistake and he wants to keep going, he is just confused. Julian was able to talk to him and share his testimonio as well as explain to him that Satan always works the hardest when we are about to make a good desicion! After this we were able to talk some more, and he wanted to keep going, and he told us he knows that it is true. Then Saturday he was baptized, and Sunday Confirmed! 

My companion and I were able to learn so much from this experience! The most important is that God loves his Children! And God answers all our prayers. Also that the members or friend are so important in the conversion. In this story, without Familia Hernandez, and don´t feel that Aroldo would have been able to overcome all of the temptations of satan, but with the help of a true friend, and a true servant of Christ all things are possible!

The other big news of this week is we put a Babtismal date with Karen and Fabiola! They are 2 youth, who have truly been reading the Book of Mormon and Bible, and praying and asking God for wisdom, and have recieved thier answer! They have both told us that they believe it is true, and Karen told us that she had a dream, and was reading the Book of Mormon, when a Dove came and made the letter S-I (Yes) with sticks on top of the Book. She said that when she woke up she was full of Joy and said it´s true! 

I love this Gopel! There is so much work to do! I know God loves each of us! He answers our prayers! 

I love you all! Have a great week!
