Hey everyone!

First off, I just want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who sent me birthday wishes! I wish I could write all of you back personally but I don’t think I will have time for that… It really did mean a lot to me though and made today much more special! It really has been a great day. To start it off, we went and played soccer in the pouring rain with a few other missionaries and a bunch of kids. It was a blast! Other than that, we didn’t do too much. Just scrambling to prepare the house for transfers next week. This past week was great! Gessy is still doing great. She keeps growing her testimony every day. It is fantastic! We also starting teaching a new investigator named Isabel who is absolutely incredible. She has been looking for the true church for a long time and decided to talk to a friend of hers who lives in the US (he is a mormon). He told her to go the the church’s site and find the chapel closest to her house, and go. That is exactly what she did. When she got there, everyone was wondering who she was. When we noticed her, we approached her and began to talk to her. She said she wanted to learn more, so we marked a visit wither her the next day. Now she is committed to be baptized this Saturday. Talk about an elect investigator. It is so amazing seeing how the Lord prepares people for us to teach. As long we are doing everything in our power to do His work, He will place those who will accept us in our paths.
I hope all continues to go well back home. Love you all so much! Have a great week.

Beijinhos,
Elder Mehl
