Hey Everybody,
I'm glad to hear everything went really well last week.=) This last Friday we baptized Rosy, the one that showed up out of the blue at church the Sunday before. She is golden. We met her on Sunday and she accepted her date to be baptized for last Friday. We baptized her at the Stake Center next to the Temple. It was a beautiful experience.
This last week we have been working hard on finding new investigators. Last night we met a man named Ricardo who is from Oaxaca Mexico. He is a native Indian and speaks Spanish in 4 different dialects. He is from a little village but is here selling handcrafted baskets from the people of his village. We started talking to him and he mentioned to us that Quetzalcoatl (Jesus Christ) came and visited his ancestors and taught them. My companion and I were in awe. Then we showed him a picture of when Jesus Christ came to the Americas and he said, " Hey, you guys have the white Indians in the picture too!" He told us there used to be white Indians here along time ago before the Spaniards came. Then he told us not many people know that. He also talked about how in some of the pyramids it talks about records recorded on golden plates. It's crazy how much he knew. We are going to go see him and give him a Book of Mormon so he can put it with his knowledge to help him see the truth. It definitely was a testimony builder talking to him. I can't wait to see what happens with him. I've gotta go but just know I love you all and I'm so grateful for everything you guys do for me. I love you and remember that the Lord loves you all.

Wikipedia:  Some Mormon scholars believe that Quetzalcoatl, as a white, bearded God who came from the sky and promised to return, was actually Jesus Christ. According to the Book of Mormon, Jesus visited the American natives after his resurrection.  Latter-day Saint President John Taylor wrote:
"The story of the life of the Mexican divinity, Quetzalcoatl, closely resembles that of the Savior; so closely, indeed, that we can come to no other conclusion than that Quetzalcoatl and Christ are the same being. But the history of the former has been handed down to us through an impure Lamanitish source, which has sadly disfigured and perverted the original incidents and teachings of the Savior's life and ministry."
