Sergio Martinez age 23

He is amazing! The elders before us were teaching him for 8 months but he didn't want to change and he didn't want to get baptized so they dropped him in December. Hermana Patino and I found him he was suppose to be baptized with us but he wasn't ready and he felt really forced. But then with me and Hermana Norton he made the decision to change to be a better person. We taught him about the atonement and the holy ghost and how it would help him he set the date and he decided to be baptize. This is him with us and his parents and hopefully they will be baptized to one day soon.

Brief Update

Kara sent her mom a brief email getting her up to date. She says that she is getting fit and should be as small as Lacey when she gets home. Also that she is a little sad because Hermana Castillo goes home in two weeks and worried about who will replace her because no one can replace Hermana Castillo.

Kara also said she has been thinking about what to do when she gets home and that she wants to put school on the top of her list along with finding a job and saving money. And that she still wants to go to nursing school. She also said not to worry she is not thinking about going home everyday she just likes to plan ahead so that you don't waste time.
