So its been a good week, but its Wednesday and I'm short time, but I promise this will still be a good email because I love you a lot!
We had Carnival on Monday and Tuesday which here in Argentina just means that people don't go to work and that people just sit around all day—nothing special but we couldn't email until today!
So on to the questions!
- Which investigator has impacted you the most?
I would say that Stella and Alberto. She was gone from the church for so long because her husband wouldn't let her go, and then as soon as she had her own house and place she found us and was ready and took the immediate opportunity to come back. She didn't wait—as soon as she saw us she came and talked to us and got us over to her house, but a lot of investigators have affected me! When I get home we will go through all my agendas and journals and I’ll explain them all!
- Tell me about a miracle you have witnessed.
Yesterday we were out about 10 kilometers from the pension (apartment) in the middle of a huge lighting storm and we has to walk 4 kilometers to get to the bus stop on a dirt road that had no street lights. We didn't get robbed, and no one talked to us and then when we got to the bus stop—we would have had to wait an hour in the rain until 11:30pm in the dark, but a man in a truck passed us stopped and gave us a ride home straight to the pension. We had talked to his son earlier that day for maybe a minute and that miracle came to pass because of it. We would have either had to walk for 3 hours at night or pray that the bus was actually going pass on a holiday at night, so we were really blessed!
- What was the best thing that has happened?
I don't know what the best thing is to happen... probably actually getting to find and teach people and just being peoples friends—thats awesome to me!
- What is your favorite place to be?
My favorite place? Teaching! In a house or outside when a member testifies of the truth —I love it, it’s just really perfect!
- How did you help somebody this week?
We painted a guys roof, and we taught some kids whose mom died two years ago and we were their friends and it was way awesome!
- Tell me one thing you learned this week?
I learned that I need to get to houses of safety when people tell me it will rain!
- When were you the happiest this week?
I was really happy when I told our branch president about some investigators and he told me he knew them well, and we made a good plan for how to help them and how he could help and it was just a cool way happy moment—that also helped me be happy with the president of the rama!
So this week!
Last Monday we went and learned how to make facturas ,(Argentine pastries) it was way good, and way cool—they are a snack from here that I love!! Look them up! Then we just kinda tried to work!
Tuesday we taught a menos activo and it was way good, and we found out the Neito isn't a member and we are going to start teaching him! I’m way pumped for it!
Wednesday we taught Hector and he told us that he had an answer and he believed the Book of Mormen was true! Way cool lesson and I was way happy with it, but he later dropped us this week because he is passing through hard timea and started going to his old church and he feels good there. I was way sad, but it happened.
Thursday we taught a few less actives and it was just a good tanquilo day of work and we worked hard!
Friday my 6 month day! We had some way cool plans—we taught Hector and he was still good, then we went to ward correlation. Then the other ward by us had an activity that we helped with. We played tons of ‘Minute To Win It’ games and then had a empanada contest. It was way fun, and way good, and a blast!!! Then we bought three kgs of ice cream and burnt a tie I had cut out of a sheet. I’ll send you the pics next week!
Saturday we had a way dope day and we taught three people who were our age and they all spoke English and I loved them a ton! I really cant wait to teach them, i feel like they are really my friends and I loved it! But they are on vacation now, so next week! But after we taught them we got bought in the huge rain storm to the point that I could dump water out of my shoes and we found shelter in a menos activos house and he gave us a bunch of game cube games that I will get to play when I get home so I'm way pumped for that! It’s all good though, no temptation here!
Sunday we had a rough day—my comp felt way sick so we left late, went to a meeting and then just talked to some people in the street. It was good, but not like teaching three teenagers that can speak English kinda,and are way cool musicians! ;)
So that was my week, next Monday I will email normal with more time and let you all see the pictures of the six month stuff.
I miss you a ton mom and know that I love you like crazy and as always I am praying way hard for you! Please be safe and take care of all the kids at home. It seems to me that Jesika needs help—please go and try to help her for me, or send Taylor to go do it —I think she could use a little time off!
I love you forever and ever!
Sincerely your child,
