How sweet it is...

Hey Everybody! 
Elder Oliver here once again! I hope all of you are doing wonderful! Sounds like a lot of snow dumped on the ole Salt Lake Valley! I hope that nobody had a car accident or anything like that. I am doing well here healthy and safe. We have been working really hard here in Alamedas. It has been fun! 
This week we had another baptism! Hermana Imelda got baptized yesterday. It was a really special service and we were all really excited for her and the step that she was taking with baptism. She is a really special lady who only wants the best for her family. We have been teaching her for awhile and she has told us that she wants her family to grow with God in their lives. We know that in the church it is more than possible for her to reach her dream. She was the only one who got baptized today but we are going to keep working with whole family because she has 4 kids two of them are of age to get baptized and also her husband. It is tough to make a decision like she did alone. She was willing to put the example for all of her family and show them how much the gospel can bless our lives. We are really excited to keep working with her family and we are hoping to have some more baptisms soon! 
The mission is something that is really awesome. I named this email how sweet it is because that is how I feel! Here in the mission watching these people change their lives is the most beautiful thing. Seeing them apply the atonement in their lives and seeing them receive the blessings of the gospel is such a rich experience. Helping these people to get closer to entering the temple to be sealed as an eternal family is something that I cannot thank Heavenly Father enough for. We are trying really hard to help these people get the blessings of the gospel and find what they are looking for in their lives. I love being here in Mexico! I love speaking Spanish I am still not fluent but that is ok I am studying to get better everyday. I love being her to help these people to receive the blessings of the Gospel it is awesome! 
I love you all so much and i am so grateful for the support that you all give me! I love you all and I hope that you all have a splendid week! Until next week! 
Con Amor Elder Oliver
