We found an apartment

Wow, it's been a great week. So starting with a funny story. Tuesday night at 7 PM the Elders called us and were like "We found you an apartment" (they have been helping us look). We went and saw it and approved and the Elders were like "Okay, we are going to move you in tomorrow morning at 9AM". What??? So we raced home and started throwing everything in suitcases and bags and buckets. It was rather hectic. So we moved and our new house is so great!! The shower is actually warm (no more bucket showers!!), the paint is not falling off the walls, there is light in the house, and there isn't mold growing on the windowsill!!! It is awesome! So until the end of the month we are the proud renters of two apartments. Hah!
     Anyway, I talked to a lady in a Rapidito on the way to Charaja. She was highly opposed to the Book of Mormon because she felt that we were "Trying to add more to God's word". I asked her, "If God wanted to add more to His word, do you think He could?" She replied "Yes, obviously". I asked her, "If God gave you more of His word, would you accept it?" She was like "Yes". I explained that God had given us more of His word through the Book of Mormon. She told me "Well, I don't believe that". I was so sad for her because I know that the Book of Mormon is more of God's word! The Book of Mormon and the Bible work together to convince us that God lives and loves us enough to send Jesus Christ to the world.
     We had a super cool lesson with an investigator named Mario. He loves to listen to us and in the lesson we taught him about the Plan of Salvation. We invited him to pray at the end and as he prayed he felt the Spirit so strongly that he began to cry! We explained to him that he had been feeling the Spirit and in our last lesson with him he told us that he wants to be baptized. It was so amazing! I know that there are such prepared people here in Tupiza! Anyway, I love you all!
Have a great week!
