This morning we went to district meetings and afterward were invited to lunch with Elizabeth an investigator of the church. She made an awesome meal and the food just kept coming and coming. Elizabeth is very excited about the gospel and about the feelings that she is feeling.

Janice came up with the idea of asking for a companionship of sister missionaries to be assigned to La Paloma branch for one change (6 weeks) or more. They could stay in our home free of charge. They would be able to translate for Janice in Relief Society and Sunday School. We would be able to use them to go out and visit the members which would allow the zone leaders Elder Walbeck and Espinola to continue to set a good example for the rest of the zone. We asked Elder Walbeck and Espinola what they thought of the idea and they thought it was a great idea. They called President Da Silva and asked him if what he thought and he was supportive of the idea.

I was in the kitchen when I heard this screen from Janice in the bathroom. The water heater had sprung a leak and was leaking all over. I ran outside and turned the water off to the house. I tried to contain the water and drain the house so that the water would not run all over any more. I called Pedro our landlord and told him that we have water leaking in the house. He came right over and looked at the water heater and said it was “dead” and went to the store and bought a new one. When he got back I remove the old one and replaced it with the new water heater and everything worked fine.

Today we got to go to Esther's baptism in Rocha. There was several members of the Branch there to support her and the missionaries. Janice met an 11 year old girl from Rocha named Macarena. They hit it off off real well and become instant friends. It was fun watching them try to communicate with each other.
