Hey Family how are we all doing? It sounds like we are keeping things ourselves busy as usual. This week was really eventful. I really enjoyed it. Things are stressful with the all of the new responsibilities, but oh well. Having great experiences helps me keep it all in check. This week we helped a less active mom go 7 days without smoking. She said it was one of the hardest things she has ever done. But she said she definitely felt Heavenly Father giving her the strength to quit. She still has desires to smoke but with time we hope it’ll lessen.
 
Antony went to Church again, but is a little hesitant to get baptized. He is afraid of becoming a missionary. That is one of his biggest doubts. We will be working on him this week.
 
One of the miracles we had was finding a family last week, The family Gonzalez. They have 4 kids ages: 7, 10, 13, 15…Mira, Juan, Miguel, Angel and Nico. Their parents, the father and the mom. We found them this last Saturday we invited them to Church. All of the kids have been really excited to go. They have also been praying and reading their scriptures every day for the past week. Two of the kids have said that when they said their first personal prayer that they felt something happening…that they felt different and had a feeling in their hearts. We explained to them that it was the spirit telling them that these things are true. After that moment they have had great desires to learn more and progress. The only problem was the parents. The dad doesn’t want to listen to us and the mom is a little hesitant. But Saturday we invited them all to church, and promised the blessings of the going to church. She said she would try it out. We went and looked for them Sunday morning and brought them all to church. The mom said she could only go for 2 hours. After the first 2 hours she said she had to go, we invited her that she could stay for the last hour the most important hour, the sacrament. She said that she had to go. Before she went we promised her kids that we would show them the baptismal font. We went and showed them, the kids were excited to see it. The mom was very silent. After that, she said she wanted to stay for the last hour. We sat together in sacrament room. It was a really neat experience, showing them the baptismal font.
 
The package didn’t come again, nor my debit card. I’m hoping it didn’t get lost.
Oh well. Thanks family for everything. I’ll continue to pray for you guys. Much Love, Chase
 
Lauren. Feliz Cumplea├▒os, Did you know that when Girls turn 15 years old in Uruguay they throw an all night party for you, with cake and gifts, and a lot of alcohol. But we’ll skip that part. The birthday girl has to dance all of the night…from 11 to about 6 in the morning. They also wear a white dress and no one else can wear white. A great significance for the purity that all young women have. I also like it because it is a reminder of the White Dress that you will wear when you enter the Temple.  Lauren I hope you have a great birthday. I miss you so much and wish I could be there to see your special birthday. Just remember that as a Daughter of God you have great worth. Continue to live your life so that you can reach that Goal of Temple Marriage and to be Worthy to Wear White.  Love you Lauren. You’ll always be my favorite little Sister.
Love, your Brother Chase
