Hello Everyone,
Another amazing week here in Parral full of blessings! We are seriously having the best time here and I found out today that I will be staying here with Elder Alder another 6 weeks so I'm pretty happy about that. This week there is some bad news and some good news. The bad news is that Mauricio and Blanca and their family didn't make it to church. They had a baby shower the night before and Mauricio started drinking again. This family needs a lot of Prayers! They are such great and normal people but Mauricio just can't stop drinking. They were separated for about 6 months and just got back together because Blanca is having a baby and all they want is unity in the family and for Mauricio to stop drinking or they're probably going to get separated again. We visited them last night and we had an amazing lesson and they have so much desire to follow the gospel and get baptized. We gave him a blessing and I have a lot of faith that they will be baptized this month.
Me and my companion saw a miracle this week. We did a tour of the church and a member brought two of his friends. We invited them to be baptized and they accepted right away and also invited us to teach the rest of their family. We went and taught the family and the kids are all really cool and want to be baptized so bad. The kids names are Carlos, Matias, Maxamiliano, the mom Joseline and the grandma Estrella. Everyone went to church except for the mom but she cant get baptized yet anyways because she's living with her boyfriend. The four are planning on being baptized on the 6th of December. It was really cool to find them because we've been praying to find a family of 7 for the last few weeks. We found them and counted 6 but then the second visit we realized the mom was pregnant and it will be a family of 7 in a few weeks! I'm really exited to work with them and if you can please keep them in your prayers. 
This week they cut the Internet time for us to an hour instead of and hour and a half so I'm sorry if my letters get even shorter.
Les queiro!!!
