Well this is the second attempt at a letter. Got to love the internet. We spent 15 minutes trying to get it fixed then gave up and did all our other stuff and decided to come back. Well it´s up and running now. So we went to an all you can eat place for lunch today with our district over in San Fernando. This was not like a place in the states....it was really yummy. So that was fun, nice to see the elders.
So mom, I´m glad all went so well on thanksgiving. I´m glad the car worked well for you. yeah. I´m sure the packages will be alright. It´s always an adventure. Kammie....you´re alive! It was so good to get your email thanks so much. Oh and Brother Bingham thankyou for the email as well, sounds like life is going good. I got Jaime´s invitation last Tuesday and I thought to myself ,¨what a nice tender mercy of the lord, if I´m not there in person at least I get the invitation on the actual day of the wedding¨. That was really nice. Jaime I wish you all the happiness in the world thats what you deserve.
This was a good week. Every lesson we taught on Saturday was great. They were perfect for the investigators and the members we were teaching. It is really amazing how the spirit can guide and direct you in a lesson and before and after the lesson as well. We taught one family, the Gomez family, who have been less active for sometime now, at least my whole time in Tigre. We taught them a lesson and watched the Testaments. The husband, Ariel,said that at the end when the man sees Christ´s face, he said he(ariel) had a flash and realized that they way he was living he would not be there to see Christ´s face. It was a big turning point for him and his whole family came to church yesterday!
A family that we are working with right now are Augustina and Gustavo. She is really good and he wants so badly to change and become better. We talked to him about the atonement and how you change with the help of Christ. We also shared Alma 32 about faith and how you need to nourish it. We didn´t know it at the time, but he is actually a gardener,so he get´s the analogy perfectly. It really was good and at the end of the lesson he asked his daughter to say the prayer,she didn´t know how so he helped her and he taught her how to pray. It was lovely. He is already starting to nourish and take care of the seed.
We had lunch with a recent convert, Oscar, on Saturday and we talked to him about patrichal blessings, he is really excited and has made some goals to start preparing to recive it. Later he asked both of us about our missions and why/how we decided to serve. He´s seriously thinking about a mission and just needs the papers. So that was a great help to him and a reminder to me about some of the reasons I´m here.
So all in all good week. I wish I could say more, and write to every one. Love you all!
