Dearest family and friends,

It has been another great week. We had transfers again, but I will be staying here for another 6 weeks to finish training Elder Rios. I have really fallen in love with this ward and area.

This week, among many other things, we added another skill to the toolbox. Arriving at an appointment one evening, we found that the small grass area was on fire and burning behind the neighbor´s house. Seeing as how it was making its way dangerously towards the house, we grabbed some buckets and a hose and helped them put it out, running up and first wetting the grass in between and later slowly pushing the fire back. It was  a great and very unexpected experience, but the family was very grateful. They had been losing the battle, but with a little help combating from the other side as well, in not too long we had it all under control.

Time is super short, but we are really getting after it.
