Hey team! How are you all doing? 

I had a fantastic week! Even though I wasn't in my area all that much. This Tuesday we took a 4 hour bus ride up to Rio Gallegos. Elder Bednar was doing a transmission to all of the missionaries in Argentina, Chile, and a few other countries. I think in total we were 6000 missionaries. Elder Bednar was up in Buenos Aires. It was one of the coolest things ever! I felt the spirit so extremely strongly. He basically turned it into a question an answer type of thing. 

One thing that I learned; the only thing that can stop us from reaching our potential is our own doubts. We truly have no limit to how spiritual we can become. We have the potential to eventually become like God. But many times we have thoughts like "I'm not good enough". Thoughts like this distract us from the atonement of Jesus Christ and make us rely in our own strength, making our doubts a reality. So don't doubt. We can do anything, we can achieve any worthy goal. If we kick out our doubts, we will have divine help to achieve it.

Also! Other cool thing that happened. We went to 28 de Noviembre, and they organized the branch there. The church is new enough that it wasn't even a branch, it was just a group of people that had authorization to do the sacrament. But we now have a branch. They meet in a small house with maybe 20-ish members. It was a very cool opportunity.

Well team! I love you. This is the true church. There is no doubt about it in my mind. I know that Jesus Christ Lives. He loves us so much and is always there for us! Have a great week!

PS. More details about the glacier. ITS GIANT! You can walk around on boardwalks on a hill directly in front of it. You are still pretty far away from the actually glacier, but we got a really good view. I saw it break a lot. Maybe every 15 minutes. You would always hear a big CRACK! Then everyone turns there heads to look and splash! There it goes.
