My dearest family,
I am doing very well down here. Yes mom, it is starting to cool off, but not so much that I need a coat yet, so I´ll let you know when that happens. Thanks for the emails this week. Dad it was nice to hear from you, aunt janie as well and sister huffman, that was a pleasant suprise.
Thanks for the updates on the singles ward I didn´t know that Kyle and Jordan had their calls, Brazil huh. Cool. I met someone this week who served their mission in Salta, like Alex. He said it is a great place.
Oh and in other news... Happy Birthday Jack! I hope that it is just splendid.
okay so as for me...
This week was great. I love my new companion. She is great. I recently found out that her dad is a motivational speaker, so that explains a lot. She´s always happy, and you just can´t get her down. She is an amazing example of someone who listens to the spirit and follows the what she feels. We saw several miracles this week. I know that a lot of it comes down to trying to be 100% obedient in everything we do. I know that the Lord is blessing us and the people here in Tigre for our efforts.
We had several wonderful lessons this past week and saw a lot of progess with our investigators.
Our first lesson was with Susan, she has a baptismal date for this next Sunday, but her brother has been a bit harder to wake up in the morings to go to church. Well this week both of them and their older sister all accepted baptismal dates for the 3rd of April, next Sunday. They said that they are really excited to be able to do it all together. Hna. Peña really has a gift of talking to people and helping them realize what is really of the most importance. She is bold, but not pushy. Oh and yesterday all of them including their mom came to church.
Also Saturday, we were planning for the next day and a less active family came to mind. So we planned to go there and help them resolve any doubts or concern with the church and learn why it is that they stopped coming. Well turns out that this family, familia Rojas, have a son who´s 9. We were talking about the atonement and why it´s important to be baptised and keep the commandments and covenants. Well Nazareno, the 9 year old, said the sweetest words a missionary can hear, ¨I want to be baptised.¨ Hermana Peña and I were very excited to talk to this family about how that can happen and the steps they need to take. So that his dad can be the one to baptise him. I really feel like this is just what this family needs to be happy again, that their son is the key to helping them come back to church.
All in all it was a good week. I am very happy to still be here with the people I have come to love so very much.
okay that´s all I got...
Love you all!
