That moment when you start speaking Kweyol to a person and it turns out he is colombian and not haitian…

HOla hola hola!!! OR Holá como dicen los Chilenos!!
Wow, sounds like you guys have been running around doing so many things in order to get this fundraiser ready!! It sure sounds like the Lord has blessed you guys a lot as you have done all of the preparation! I hope and pray that all goes well!
Well, like the title says, we have been focusing on working with all of the haitians here in our sector! They are all such nice and good people and are soooo receptivos!!!! So yeah, the other day my comp and i walked into a pieza and we saw a, yeah ill say it is spanish, un negrito (esa palabra no es mala en español) and my comp started speaking kweyol to him (or haitian) because we thought he was haitian. Well, he gave us a weird look and says “please speak spanish” . turns out he was un caleño!!! jajaja and my comp and i laughd super hard afterwards because that happens a lot to us…. but oh well, its super funny!
Well, this week i finished studying the Book of Mormon from cover to cover. I love the invitacion tht Moroni gives us in the lst chapter of the Book of Mormon. He invites us to perfect ourselves in Christ, that is the purpose of the Atonement. We, with our own power, cannot do that, but with the Atonement of Christ and with the ordenanzas of the Gospel we can! Christ suffered so that we could become like Him. Why do we need to be like Him? Well, He was the only person who lived a life that allowed Him to be saved. If we want to be saved, we must live like Him.
Sé, con todo mi corazón, que necesitamos ser como Cristo. Es la única manera en que podemos regresar a la presencia de nuestro Padre Celestial y estar cómodos en Su presencia. Sé que al vivir el Evangelio de Jesucristo y al esforzarnos por cambiar y utilizar la expiación, podemos llegar a ser más como Él. Comparto esto en el nombre de Jesucristo, amén!
Mwen coné que Jezikri viv’a e que li bay nu Sali-la. Mwen vlé palé avek tout pou que yo recivwa Sali-la! En nom di Jezikri, amen! 

(a little haitian for you!)
los quiero!!
And yes, our investigador got baptized this past week! It was super awesome! He was sooo axcited and happy ti get baptized! The Bishop and the ward are also super happy because he was the first haitian baptism. The whole ward, including the missionaries, has hatian fever! So there has been lots of work with the haitians!
