Dear Family and Friends,
Hi. It´s me again, that girl down here in Argentina. I´m doin´just fine and dandy. Mom, thanks for the email from Alex. It is really true, there are dogs everywhere and the desserts are amazing. Hey before I forget, Happy belated Birthday to Tamsin, I thought of you the other day, but couldn´t email, so here it is today! Dad I liked the poem. Mom, I am not really sure what to tell you about the phone call yet. I´m not sure if I´ll be transferred. I hope not, but the more time I have here the more likely it is that I´ll go; and at the end of this transfer ( in 2 weeks) I´ll have 71/2 months in Tigre so we´ll have to wait and see before I give you a number to call. Okay so today we went to Pacheco, and played football (soccer) with the Elders and it was a blast. There is one Elder Sargettis, from California, and he is hilarious, he is really tall so when he goes to kicks the ball and misses, watch out ´cause his legs go every which way. It was really fun!
Okay as for the work...
This week just seemed to fly by. We were very blessed to see Brian confirmed this week. I feel very blessed to be here in this area and be a part of the lives of so many wonderful people.
We had a great lesson with our investigator Pablo, yesterday. One reason it was great was the member who came with us. Hno. Acosta is the president of the Elders Quorum here in Tigre and the ward is really starting to see blessings for his help. We have three investigators with baptismal dates right now and all of them are men. I sincerely believe that the Lord is blessing us and answering our prayers not only because we are working here, but also because the members are starting to get more involved. In the lesson with Pablo, the testimony of this brother helped him so much. He talked more than we did and we finally found out the real reason he has doubts, he had been talking a lot about what his friends would say, but we knew that it was something deeper than that. So finally we were able to learn that he has fears about being able to comply with some of the commandments. It was only through much love and questions that he finally confided in us his real doubts. We put a new fecha and are working with him to be ready for this day.
We also have two investigators who are the children of lesson active members. I am really starting to gain a testimony of working with less active and part member families. My companion is wonderful and she really helps me to be a better missionary.
I am looking forward to this next week and all that the lord has in store for us here.
Also I am attaching some photos of my excursions here in Tigre!
Lots of love,
PS. Okay I made some chocolate chip cookies last week and something wasn´t right. There is no temperature gage for the oven, it´s gas,so maybe it was too hot. So the cookies were really crispy, well and they were really thin, they were not like yours, they were yummy but could have been better could you help me figure out what went wrong. Thanks a million!
