Christmas Countdown

This past week was crazy! Elder Taufa and I worked so hard! When we came home at night we were so tired. Usually Elder Taufa likes to talk a lot. But we've been so tired that we just pass out. We've seen a lot of miracles and have been able to be a part of a lot of different peoples lives.
On Tuesday one of the members, Matute, called us up. He's an old guy that lives all alone. He knows a lot about everything and just spends his time helping people, he's really cool! He called us and he said, "Elders, I have someone for you to baptize! Come over as soon as you can." So we went, of course. He introduced us the a girl named Joanna. She is 20 years old and she has family that lives about a half hour away. We don't know all of her story but she's had a pretty hard life. She's living with Matute for a while and he is helping her with some legal stuff. We taught her everyday this past week. It was a lot of fun and a little different. For one, she speaks english so we taught a lot of the lessons in english. Secondly, she had no religious backround. Our lessons had to be super simple. I was good for us to have to take a step back, slow down, and teach someone that God is really there!
This gospel is true! I know it!
