Good Afternoon,

As far as the investigators go, almost everyone here will get committed to be baptized, the hard part is helping them keep that commitment. The Mamani family is doing well. To tell you more about them the mom contacted us in the street and told us that we should visit them because her son was going down a bad path and had bad friends. The Saturday we visited them they accepted everything and went to church that next day during Carnaval. We have been doing well in teaching, but we find out that they are not married and so now we are working on a marriage date. They have four children and the oldest is 22 years old but looks like a 10 year old (apparently he stopped growing at that age.) Then their daughter Camila is 18, Ignacio has 14 (the rebel one) and a baby of a year and a half. They are a nice family and yesterday the mom and daughter were able to go to Church. It rained really hard and we get to church and there was about 6 people there (people don´t like to come to Church when it rains hard) And we felt that we should call this family and they were ready to go and so we wrangled up a member and forged the rivers and picked them up. The Lijeron family told us that they wanted to stay in the Catholic Church and so we are not working with them as much. 

Also talked with Natan yesterday. He didn't say too much other than he showed us some photos of his trip. I suppose his parents are converts although his mother did serve a mission.  

Hard to believe that Justin is going to buy a motorbike. You'll have to make sure to be careful with that. By the way Justin should write me--I haven't heard much from him lately.

It also sounds like there is a lot of wedding planning going on. Let me know if there is something I can do. 

I also have one last homework assignment. Could someone send me a list of Spanish nouns that end in e with the gender la or el. It should be pretty easy if you look for Spanish gender noun exceptions or something. But basically  a list of nouns ending in e and whether it uses la or el. For example: La Sangre the blood is feminine. In Spanish when a noun ends in e is impossible to know whether it feminine or masculine.

Thanks for all the recipes. Lots of people want to try them.
