Well this week in rama Belgrano, San Pedro de Jujuy was very good!
First, someone guessed that I am FORTY YEARS OLD, so that's the good news.
Better news, today is Hermana Chumioque's birthday and also P Day so we used the occasion to go to Los Cerros de Siete Colores in Purmamarca. It was BEAUTIFUL! Its seriously like Zion National Park or Moab, but put in Argentina. Everything's super green and there are huge mountains and then all of a sudden there are huge red rocks. We got to hike and stuff and it was a lot of fun. I have sure missed doing fun outdoorsy things--we will have to go on tons of adventures when I get back to make up for it...

Best news, Hernan got baptized and confirmed!!! I don't know if I said, he's 13. His family minus his dad were able to come to his baptism Saturday and I think he was kind of bummed his dad didn't come, but then his dad did come to his confirmation Sunday! Hernan is a really nice young man, he is always excited to learn when we come, and his little sisters yell "LAS MORMONAS FELICES" [the Happy Momon ladies]!!!! We are going to work with their whole family, they are all really great. In our area every single one of the recent converts is also now less active in the church. When I came this really troubled me, and I decided that I will not encourage anyone to get baptized that I don't really feel is ready and is going to remain active. I feel that Hernan is very sincere and has a testimony of the gospel, he reads the Book of Mormon and prays every day and is just really great. But it's super important that every recent convert has 3 things, like Pres Hinckley said - a friend, a responsibility, and nourishment with the good word of God. That is very true.

Well I don't remember what else happened this week, but here are some fotos. I love you all very much, and always remember to rely on our Savior Jesus Christ--whether we are in good times or bad times, He is there to help us. John 8:12 ["Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 'I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.' "]
I hope this week is just wonderful!
