Prayers Are Answered!

Hey Family,
haha! Sorry my letters keep getting shorter and shorter.  I don't know,  I think I just get sick of typing!
I know that's no excuse. Sorry I'll try and do better.
Well this week was awesome!  We had alot of success thanks to the Lord and much fasting and prayers.  Sunday we had a baptism.  The person's name is Sarah, a really cool girl.  She is 20 and has her own business cutting hair.  She has been through alot in her life.... I mean ALOT!   Friday she had her interview and passed then Saturday we went by and talked with her and she just broke down with a few things. I'm glad we were there to help her in her time of need. We gave her a blessing and she seemed to be very calm after that.  That lesson was probably one of the most spiritually draining lessons I've had on my mission.  But a great experience!  We also had 5 investigators in church, the Rivera family (Maricela, Ruben, Alejandro,and Ruben jr...)  a mother, father and 2 sons.  They are really cool.  The first lesson that we had with them was the Restoration.  They took it very well and it all seemed to make perfect sense to them.  At the end of the lesson we knelt down with them to ask God if the things we taught were true and if Jesus Christ restored His gospel through Joseph Smith.  They all got an answer that it was true.  It was very powerful! I know without a shadow of a doubt that the Lord answers our prayers.  They came to church and really loved it. They all, except the dad, accepted to be baptized next week. I know he will too, he's just a little scared. =) My companion and I are way excited for them.
We also brought a lady to church named Rosa Maria.  She is a widow with 2 sons.  She felt the spirit so strong in church and in the baptism of Sarah.  We saw her last night and asked her how she felt in the church.  She told us she felt such peace and could feel the love that God has for her through each and every member there.  We helped her recognize that this was an answer to her prayer she offered the night before asking if the things we taught were true.  She then had doubts about joining the church because she doesn't know if her children are going to join the church also.  We read the first part of D&C 31 and put her name in it instead of Thomas and that was definitely an answer for her.  She is also going to be baptized next Sunday  =)
Well I gotta go but remember that I love you all. Have a great week!  I'll be thinking of you all.
