Working Hard!!

Hola Familia!!!! Muchas gracias por el correo!!!! This week was a pretty great week. We are super happy to have are two baptisms on Saturday!!! Satan fought hard but they are great they were able to get over every challenge. They went to church alone before we went to get them for their confirmations. They have strong testimonies of the Restoration which is super awesome which helped them be able to get over many problems. Hermana B had some guy yelling at her for like an hour telling her not to get baptized!!! It did not even affect her because she knew it is true. We also had a good week finding new investigatros. We were able to have 7 people in church and 6 have a baptismal date!! We have a baptism this week. Her name is M P. She is twelve and she comes to church by herself and already pays tithing which is awesome!!! She really wants to get baptized. We are working with her family but her parents are not married so we have more work to do there. We also had a family named the family M come to church. It is a mom with her daughter who is 20 and her son who is 22. They are pretty cool. They have a many problems in their lives and they really need the gospel. We are super excited for this family. We also have another family named the Family R. The dad and son came to church this week. The son is 14 and has a baptismal date and he is a super athletic black kid!! but he is super humble and a great kid. His name is V. We are excited for the investigators that we have!! We need to find many more this week. It was great to get to talk to you all Monday. It was great to see your faces. It is weird how the time is flying by but we´ll keep giving it our all as a family. It should be great!!!! I am feeling much better now. I did not really have any side effects from the medicine that they gave me so all good!!! Well I love all of you so much!! I am so grateful to have such a wondeful family. I am learning so much about the importance of family here in the mission I love you all and hope that you all have a wonderful wonderful week!! Con mucho mucho amor!! Elder Duzett

A Week of Hard Work!!

Hola Familia, How are all of you!! First off this Sunday we are going to Skype! I will be skyping at 7 30pm which I think is like 5 30pm (actually 6:30, they didn't Spring Forward!)your time! It should be great. This week I don´t have too much time to write because today we had Leadership Council. It was pretty great. We were able to learn quite a bit of things from President Torres. This week we are excited because we are going to have a baptism. His name is E M. He is 18. It should be great. This next week we are going to have 2 baptisms as well. Two sisters one is named B G who is 23 and her sister named L M. She is 11. We are working with the parents they are super close. The mom has a testimony she just has to get the courage to tell it to her family. This week I did an interchange with Elder M. He is from Bingham High School and he graduated the same year as I do. He is super awesome. We were able to work hard and have some success which was the best part about the interchange. Well sounds like all of you are doing great. I was sad to hear about Brother Wailes. Some of the fondest memories I have was blessing the sacrament in the homes of the members. It was a huge testimony booster about the Sacrament. I was able to take the sacrament to a sick member in Pasaje a veces but really it brought me to realize the importance of the sacrament. I am so grateful for Brother Ed! Tell him he is a wonderful man and that he is extremelly important for our Heavenly Father! I am so grateful for our ward and what I have learned. In the mission I have learned a lot more about wards and their progress. It really is tough work sometimes but it is so worth it. Well fam I hope you all have a wonderful week. This week we are going to have a great week. I love you all so much!! Con Mucho Amor! Elder Benjamin Duzett
