4th of July Fun

Hey!
Oh yeah there are some rough hot days but I'm hanging there! That is pretty hot! It hasn't been that hot temperature wise, but it has felt pretty rough with the humidity.
This week has been a pretty average week as well. It is still great though! We were invited to a members house for a shrimp boil and fireworks on the 4th. It was really fun and good! We played around in the yard with the kids for a good while, and by the end we were dripping wet. It was a great day though! The people here in the branch spoil us like crazy!
All the pestanas have been having some craziness lately! Emely, who is Ramon's daughter that was baptized in January, just had her baby recently. She is a really cute little girl, but she got a bad fever so they took her to the hospital. They have to keep her for like a week to run different tests, and since she is just 2 weeks old. Anyways we went down with the branch president yesterday to the children's hospital in Charlotte and gave the little baby a blessing. I was able to give part of it, and it was a very interesting feeling. There is something about new born babies, I don't know how to describe it, but it was amazing! They are doing better though and should come back tomorrow. Then miryan who is Ramon's daughter as well is having her baby very soon! She has been having a lot of pain and they think she will be having her baby early--she was due in mid-August. We gave her a blessing as well since she's been in a lot of pain. That is such a great family though! They have strong faiths in God and Jesus Christ. When we go over the girls get so excited and grab the books and pass them out. We usually read a chapter with them. They just soak it up, and feel a lot. Edwin is also still planning on being baptized the 22nd in Charlotte.
Anyways things are going great! Im happy as ever and loving the work! It's hard to think of how much I have felt through this all. I know with all my heart that God is no respecter of persons, but loves all of his children so very much. I'm glad to hear things are going good at home! I hope you have a great week! Take care!
