A Great Week

Hey there everyone! This was a great week! 

There are some Hermanas in our zone that have some great investigators named Luisa and Diego. They really want to get baptized. The only that that was holding them back from getting baptized is they are not married, and they wanted to wait to be able to have a big party. But they just kept putting it off for a really long time. 

So my comp and I went over with the Hermanas, and had an awesome lesson with the 4 of us. We talked about how today is the day of our repentance, and how they don't need to wait any more to repent. It went great! They committed to get married and baptized in this week!!!! Whoa! 

Also we have our ward mission leader is leaving on a mission this week to Chile! It was cool. We went to his farewell. His brother was there. He hadn't been to church in years. He started balling at the end and basically running to the door. Before he could escape, I caught him and told him that I had a brother that served a mission too. I missed him every day for two years, but I knew that he was where he needed to be. He seemed to feel better after that and stayed and ate some cupcakes with us. So that was good. 

But Yeah it was a great week. I love this place so much! I really love the mission. It is so dang cool! Have a great week everyone!

Hosting Zone Conference

Hey there everyone! How is it going. My comp and I had a great week! 

We had to host the zone meeting, so all of the missionaries from Las Heras, Pico Truncado (don't laugh Ben) and Puerto Deseado had to come up to Caleta. A member made us what is called a choripan, basically giant hot dogs, they were really good. 

This Saturday I was kind stressed. We were trying to work hard with the investigators but we were just not able to find or teach hardly anyone this week. So Saturday morning I said a prayer and asked God to please remind me why I was on the mission. A few hours later we got a call from a member from Comodoro. He said, "Hey the Elders. I have a reference for you guys. It's my sister in law and she wants to get baptized!" 

WOW! He told us about why she wanted to change her life, and she asked for the missionaries to come by. So we went by to visit her later that night and she really did have desires to change her life, and was very willing to get baptized, That night I felt the spirit so strongly. It was amazing that she was so prepared and wiling to change. Her name is Diana. We are going to be working with her a lot now. 

I love you all, I love this gospel, and I love being a missionary! Have a great week!

New Companion and Empanadas

Hey team! How is it going. We had a crazy good week. 

This week we had transfers, so I was in the bus station almost all day. We even had to get there at 3 in the morning one time to receive some missionaries. So that was not all that fun, but now we are all here and we are all working. My comp had to travel to Comodoro, so I was left here. I did divisions with some members and had some really sweet lessons. 

We taught the word of wisdom to some of our best investigators, Vanesa and Dario. It went great. They both said that they would like to be baptized and they both want to live the word of wisdom. So that is awesome!

Have a great week everyone!
