My new companion, Elder Calizaya from Peru

Hows everyone doing? Sounds like the Superbowl was pretty good and no nobody talks about it here. I had no idea about the Superbowl until a member told me on Sunday morning, so its definitely not anything special here. 
This week we've just been working with the members like crazy. We basically don't knock on doors at all anymore, but instead they said they would rather have us in the house of a member instead strengthening them and getting references. Were still working with Pamela and Eli. We've seen the biggest change in Pamela- its crazy. Before she just listened to us and wasn't that interested and had almost no relationship with God. She said never received answers to her prayers and she was just stuck in her house all day. Now she's super happy every time we come and she tells us about how she feels the spirit so strong when she prays. With Eli happened basically the same thing. She was super shy but now she's super exited to get baptized. They are both neighbors and we took both of them to a baptism in another ward because they wanted to see how it was and they loved it. Pray for them so that they can get baptized on the 15th! Have an awesome week, Love everyone!

How are ya doing family? We had changes again today and after a short time with Elder Skelton he is leaving and my now companion will be Elder Calizaya from Peru. I'm pretty exited to be with a Latino companion because I've been with gringos for the last 9 months so i think that will help my Spanish a lot.
This week we weren't able to have very much contact with our investigators but Pamela is still doing really good. She even went camping with the relief society of the ward and loved the trip and she wants nothing else but to get baptized. Eli isn't doing too great. She told us the other day that her pastor of the evangelic church wanted to talk to her. We told her that she probably shouldn't and we told her everything that he would say false about the church. She went and talked to him and then she wouldn't answer her phone and didn't go to church and finally after church we got a hold of her and she told us exactly what we told her would happen. She's really confused and she's not sure anymore about her baptism this Sunday so she definitely needs your prayers and were hoping she can still do it on Saturday
Love you guys!
