Well I hope everyone is doing well at home. I´m doing great here in Trevelin. It was a tought week, but I´m ready to start this new one strong.
This week was really full of hardships and frustrations. Right now we are really having a hard time getting our appoinements confirmed. Whenevery we call or try to go by their house, they don´t answer, so that has really hindered our abiliy to progress with our investigators this week. One hermana in the branch recently came back from the United States. She was living there for six months with her daughter in Nebraska. We were talking to her at lunch and we asked what the biggest difference between Gringos and Argentines are. She said that gringos are really orderly and do everything planned and things like that. She said in Argentina people just go with the flow and things like that and just do whatever. I could deffinately attest to that haha.
This week we really had an awesome sacrament meeting. I had to give another talk for about the forth or fifth time already haha I lost count. But I really don´t mind giving talks anymore. I am more comfortable with it and it also helps me learn a little more about the things I have to talk about. I talked about love and charity and showing by small acts of service. It made me thinks of the times where I had helped somebody and felt that love after doing it. It reminded me that we all have a Heavenly Father who knows us personally and loves us so much that we can´t even imagine. There was also an older lady that attended the meeting. She was from Buenos Aires and was baptized in Trevelin about 60 years ago. She shared her tesitmony and it was amazing. She testified of the love of God. I could really feel it right there and I am so greatfull for that. I am so greatfull for the opportunity to serve our loving Heavenly Father and also to serve his children in the Patagonia.
I love you all and I hope that you have a great week. I hope you enjoy the warm weather you have up there. It is getting pretty cold here.
