Hey its good to hear from you.
This week was really good and we got to see lots of people. We are teaching a christian lady named Bridget and she says she knows what we are saying is true. She is very nice to us. She always wants to cook food for us. We gave her a baptismal date for April 15 so hopefully nothing will get in the way of that. 

Then we were trying to find a referral given to us from a member and we were getting lost trying to find this house so we decided to ask this random house if they new a Soltin Nazer. Sure enough one of the persons says that's me! We contacted him  at his cousins house. He lived further into the village but he is a Muslim man and his brothers moved to Canada and converted to Christianity and his mom saw how good his brothers were doing and told him that he needed to convert too and so he talked to his brother in law who is a member of the church. He came to church on Sunday and said he plans on coming back every Sunday. We are going to visit him on Tuesday

I have been studying a lot from Jesus the Christ and have been learning a lot about his ministry and mission here on the earth. Its very good. I have also been studying in Helamen when Nephi was so sorrowful when he saw all of the wickedness going on among the Nephites and warns them of destruction if they do not correct their ways. My studies have been helping me understand the love of God and how sad it is when others choose wickedness over happiness. I really have noticed the spirit in our lessons when it tells me when to start and when to stop and when to move on or to just bear my testimony. It is very cool and you can defiantly tell when you are teaching with it or with out it. Our biggest struggles here are people not being home when we go to see them and them not showing up to church. They will promise they are coming but when we call them in the mornings they are no longer able to make it and it is very very frustrating but we are working our way around it. Oh and the Duckman just ended up throwing the snake into the big canal that goes to the ocean. 

Anyways keep being awesome!

Oh and I got both Grandma and Grandpa Baker's and Fisher's packages last Friday but forgot to tell you last Monday! Anyways love you guys lots!
