Subject: Hello from Puerto Madryn!
Date: 10 Sep 2012 08:51:54 AM MDT
Well today I am writing you all from the beutiful city of Puerto Madryn. It could be my last P Day here in Rawson so we decided to take advandage. Madryn is a pretty sweet city. Its right on the coast. We were able to see some wales as well right of the shore. It was really sweet we were they were really close too so that was awesome. And yes I did take some pictures.
Well this week was pretty sweet. The coolest thing was the rededication of the Buenos Aires temple. It really was a great experience. We were also able to attend the cultural celebration on Saturday night where they did a whole bunch of folklore dances and stuff. But the rededication was awesome. President Eyring, Elder Chirstofferson, and Elder Ballard all came. It was really interesting to hear Elder Chirstofferson speak in spanish, he speaks really well. One of the best parts of the rededication was the talk by Elder Eyring. One thing that really stuck out was in the middle of his talk he says “I need to add something…” he then bore his testimony about how the temple ceremony he recieves a confermation there there are apostles in the Earth in these days. It was a very powerfull testimony that he bore and also something that he didn´t plan on saying in the first place. But it was a great experience. It really felt like I was in the temple again which is something that I havn´t felt for a long time now so it was very nice.
This week we also saw some progress with some investigators. We are teaching a Mom, Claudia, and her son Augusto. We taught them the plan of salvation and also really focused on eternal families. It was really awesome. We were doing an exchange so I was with Elder Yobanolo a mini missionary who was baptized only 6 months ago. He bore his testimony of the plan of salvation and it was really awesome. The spirit was so strong and Claudia was in tears at the end. Claudia and Augusto are really animated about the gospel right now. Hopefully this week we will be able to put them on a baptismal date.
The familia Pelozo is progressing well. We weren´t able to find them very much this week but we did talk to them for a little bit on Thursday. The said that they were all reading the pamphlet that we left them and were very pleased with it. So its good to see them progressing. Daniel the dad also had some questions about alcohol and stuff so we talked about the word of wisdom and at the end he accepted it. So we well see how is goes this week.
Sorry I don´t have too much time. I hope you all have a great day and a great week. I love you all!
