We have a couple baptism coming up.
Mari´s sister is this week. I am excited. She has really grabbed onto the rod and is approaching the tree fast.
Isaac is doing the same thing. With him it was amazing. On Saturday he told the story of Adam and Eve almost perfectly. Like word for word. He read in the Book of Mormon and prayed. He said he didn't want to go to church and then he was there yesterday! Yeah!! He is getting baptized in the middle of March. March is going to be an amazing month. I can feel it!
Yesterday was stake conference. It was far from where we live but we had three investigaTors come. Which was awesome! President Spannaus and his wife spoke. President S. was very entertaining.
After waiting a couple hours a member took us out to Chinse. Which is very expensive. My plate was like 84 pesos. Which is alot. It was a huge plate of noodles. I could not eat it all. I felt really bad so I started praying....really hard. And then the blessing came. A counselOr from the Stake presidency came to the rescue and ate the rest of my food. Yeah!!!
On Thursday we ate at the Stake Presidents house. We have all the members of the stake presidency in our ward. We have actually ate at all three of their houses. ha ha.
Spanish is coming along better. I love it. The prayers are working. btw (by the way). My feet don't hurt anymore. I guess I had to trade in my feet for missionary feet and you have to go through this process.
Today we went to the ocean and saw these divers. It was better then the Mayan. Like two hundred feet better then the Mayan. I have a picture I will try to send.
These Mexican divers pray to Mary and then do front flips into what seems like little water. They are crazy. We also saw and played with otters. Here is a funny picture I have with the zone and the otter kissing me. He just jumped up, grabbed my leg and kissed me on the cheek. lol. The world is a beautiful place.
Well, I know it is not much this week but it will get better. I am excited to start a new month.
Love Elder Chadwick

How about the area? Are you happy there?
I love my area. The people are great here. I will be here for 4-5 months. I am excited to do work and get alot of baptisms. I really want to double the members in the ward before I leave this area. I think there are less then a hundred so it is very possible according too Ammon in the BofM.
