Hola Hola!! 
    I am in my 10th cambio now! Wooooooot!! I have been called as trainer once again. This is my 4th ´hijo´ in the mission. I am still waiting for him.... he comes tomorrow from the CCM. Not sure if its a gringo or latino but i am excited for whatever happens! So this change I will be district leader and trainer haha. This last cambio has been hard. The work is really slow here in Batuco. It is difficult to contact people and recieve referencias. We talk to almost 200 people every week but we havent seen many fruits coming from it. We just found a new investigator this last week, I hope he can progress. He is a big time vegetarian... its interesting our conversations haha. We were able to have a baptism the last change...her name is Ivania, she has progressed alot and is preparing to go to the temple for the first time and do baptisms for the dead. Her dad is not a member and her mom and brothers are inactive but she her brother to go to church last sunday! That was cool!
    I am teaching violin lessons now haha and we are going to start an inglis class, i am excited for that. I am sure we will be able to find alot of new investigators though it. This last thursday we went to a members house to celebrate a birthday party... well when we got there we didnt know that a boy in the family was celebrating his birthday but they shared the news with us and we joied in. This family is very active and very humble.  The party remimded me of what true happiness really is.This birthday get together was for a boy named Santiago and he just turned 14. Just his small family was there and us. There were no presents or anything big. There was a small cake and small plate of rice that i ate in 4 bites. They arent doing well financially but they were all just happy. I felt so happy and just a warm feeling inside... I dont know how to describe it. But it was nice having a reminder like that.. that we can find happiness in simple things and always in our family.
    We were able to go to the temple a couple weeks ago and that was awesome!! In our mission we are allowed to go once a year nothing more. It was a really neat spiritual experience. We have to do a sleep over the night before because the busses dont pass by our house early in the morning. So we ended up with 6 missionaries in a house. 6 missionaries are 2 matresses and a few blankets oh man it was terrible!! Yes we did have permission to do that. It was crazy haha.
   I have 9 months more in the mission! Time is passing so fast. It always passes fast especially if you work. The mission is hard. It is very hard. It stretches you and makes you do things you have never done before. Its full of ups and downs but it is amazing. It is such an awesome experience to be an instument in the Lord´s hands bringing people to repentance and seeing them happy. And seeing the conversion in ourselves as missionaries. The mission is amazing.

Love you guys

-Elder Brady
