 Hello Hello, First the water. That was a tough week in the water situation. The whole town was without for 4 days. We bought water and there were a couple neighborhoods that had water luckily there was a member who lived there so we could shower.  I will be sending pictures today. Mom dont forget i sent my memory card with elder crompton. He lives in logan i dont know how you can track down his number. he has yours. No letters or packages. It has been like two months or so without seeing mail haha. The baptism of william was a very special day. Our ward mission leader jhon baptized him. Jhon is probably my best friend here. He is in all the pictures and he is in the picture of us fishing with the net. William bore his testimony after and simply said it was true and testified to his mom that she needs to be baptized i had a very powerful experience the day of his baptism. I felt the power of the lord and i felt like he was forgiving me of my sins. I felt peace and joy. I felt like what i was doing was changing lives. I felt love for the saviour and desire to follow him. Baptisms are great in the lives of missionaries. We are teaching some great people. Luz londono she was prepared by the lord to accept our message. She will be baptized on the 17th of this month. Gislena is her best friend and we are teaching her also. Liliana patricia, she came to church for the first time. She believes everything we say to her and she is very poor. She has ten kids and they beg every day to eat. It has been sad seeing the lives of the family but we are doing all we can to help them. Those are the main people that will be baptized this month. We will see about who we find next. haha Find teach baptize. That is what we do and that is why we are here. Our area is so small it is fantastic. we never have to go in bus. Chinchina is a tiny tiny town and everyone lives on top of eachother so it is great. We have seen many changes in the mission. President prince has many ideas that are really helping the work. He is an inspired man that is trying to help in the lords work. I love you all. i should see mail this next week. Elder Billy belnap
