Cracking Knuckles

Kamusta Everybody,
 This past week hasn't been too eventful. We had great progress though with our investigators and lots of them came to church. 
 One great experience that I had was working with our investigators Margarito and Precy. They both are ready to be baptized and will be able to after they get married next month. The fact that they are getting married and have a plan is a major blessing. Most people here have lots of complications. They either don’t have a birth certificate, they have older siblings unmarried (the culture here is that you can’t get marred before an older sibling) or they aren't in a financial position to pay for the marriage license.  Margarito is also doing really well in trying to overcome his smoking addiction. The past few days I have been trying to give up the simple habit of cracking my knuckles. In order to be able to better understand how tough it must be for him to quit his addiction.  It is almost impossible for me to stop doing a simple thing like cracking my knuckles, so I really admire him for his determination to give up smoking. 
 Earlier today we also went on a hike to the mountains on the seashore. It is really pretty over there and we rode these homemade cart things called Skates on the rail road. The view was really pretty and I came back with some great pictures, a few neat seashells and a nice sunburn. 
 Other than that nothing of any significance has happened in the past week.
I hope you all are doing really well and feel the love of God more in your life this next week.
