"Lilia and Her Amazing Family"

Hola mis amigos y mi familia,
HEEEELLLLLOOOO from Rose Park.  We had a great this week, mostly due to Lilia and her amazing family.  They are planning to be baptized all together on the fourth of August.  Lilia is amazing.  She's a single mom of five kids but manages to make it look easy.  I actually just talked to her about thirty seconds ago because she happened to be at the library today and she just has a huge smile on her face every single time I see her.  And this week it's especially amazing that she has the smile on her face because they had to move this past weekend because they nearly completely ran out of money.  They're now renting a single room where Lilia and four of the kids will live together.  But, they're doing it with a smile on their faces.  A month ago, Lilia seemed like she was almost out of steam.  But now, her live has become invigorated anew.  Please include each of them in your prayers (Lilia, Ishmael, Eduardo, Miranda, and Alex). 
And another funny story about them.  Alex is 2 years old and he is the craziest kid I have every met in my intire life.  The first time we met him, he nearly killed us.  But, this past week when we knocked on the door, he ran up to both of us and gave us huge hugs.  I nearly cried I was so happy.
I love you all and wish the best for each of you.
