Mi Familia y Amigos, 

I LOVE ALCALDE DIAZ!!! It's beautiful and lively, and I just really REALLY love it! The only thing that is not so fun are all of the hills (more acurately described as mini mountains)... we don't walk, we hike! But I'm loving the excercise (at least that's what I tell myself haha) and the people we meet definitely make it all worth it! My comp is fantastic and a really hard worker, we are having fun running from all of the dogs together... (;

This week I fell in love again with the story of Zeezrom. If you don't remember, Zeezrom was a rich/wicked lawyer from Ammonihah who after hearing the words spoken by Alma and Amulek, repented and changed his life. My favorite part of the story is found in Alma 15. Zeezrom, laying sick with a burning fever, asked Alma to heal him. Alma responded as follows, 

"6 And it came to pass that Alma said unto him, taking him bthe hand: Believest thou in the power of Christ unto salvation?
And he answered and said: Yea, believe all the words thathou hast taught.
And Alma said: If thou believest in the redemption of Christ thou canst be healed.
And he said: Yea, believe according to thy words.
10 And then Alma cried unto thLord, saying: Lord our Godhave mercy on this man, and heal him according to his faitwhich is in Christ.
11 And when Alma had said theswords, Zeezrom leaped upon his feet, and began to walk; anthis was done to the great astonishment of all the people; and the knowledge of this wenforth throughout all the lanof Sidom.
12 And Alma baptized Zeezrom unto the Lord; and he began frothat time forth to preach unto the people."
May we all follow the example of Zeezrom, and "Leap upon (our) feet". Life is hard, and their are always trials, but if we believe in the "power of Christ unto salvation", we have no need to fear. I love this gospel so much!!! Have a fantastic week!!!! 
Love, Hermana Van Deusen
When I say "Kayleigh in the Jungle"... it's not a joke haha
