So hello everyone! Its nice to be writing you this Tuesday morning. Its not going to lie its really weird having PDay on Tuesday. Yesterday we had our zone confence so they pushed our pday to today. Thank you so much for all the photos from Thanksgiving. It looks like you all had a good time. And Tyler, please shave that nasty stuff you have on your face. So I just got done reading Spencer’s email and I must say I am utterly jealous that they had a huge party like that for thanksgiving. Here in Argentina we didn’t do anything. But it would be very difficult due to the very large distances in between cities. (The mission Argentina Neuquén is the largest mission in the world geographicaly, just a fun fact I learned the other week). But today our district is going to Puerto Madryn to have a little Thanksgiving celebration with the Madryn district so that should be fun.
But this week was full of tramites (i don´t know a good translation for that word). I was all around doing stuff to renew my visa so I was able to go back to Rawson. We did the tramites in the morning and then I was able to stay and eat lunch with the Familia Chemin. Oh man was it so good to see them again. It was the first time I saw all of them since I left. They are all doing wonderful. We were able to share stories about all the things that happened when I was in Rawson. It was really nice to catch up too. Their daughter Jazmin that was born the week I left is just the cutest little thing. But it was just awesome to hear that they keep progressing. Gustavo told me that he is preparing to receive the Melchizedek Priesthood this coming week. So that was just the coolest thing to hear. It really made me happy to see them preparing themselves to make saving covenants and progress in this gospel.
So we returned and to be honest we just had a really bad week. Once again all of our appointments fell through an nobody was home. I was really getting discouraged. It is really hard when you have these appointments and prepare to teach these lessons in the morning and you get there and they are not home. But the zone conference we had yesterday really helped boost my spirits. President talked about being pure and staying focused on our purpose so we always have the spirit. I made me realize a lot of the faults I had and made me want to change. The spirit was reeally strong throught the whole conference. It was amazing.
We went out back to work after the conference and I was just really feeling good. I was excited about visiting people and sharing the gospel. We were able to find two people last night! Which was more than we found in the last three weeks combined. It was so nice to share the gospel with someone new. Their names are Fabian and Daniela. They are a couple that live with together with their 3 year old son Franco. They are really awesome. Fabain has talked with missionaries a little bit before because he has 2 brothers that are members. We shared a message about the restoration and were able to help him solve a lot of his doubts. We invited him to pray at the end of the lesson and he asked in his prayer to know if these things are true. I know that if he will get an anwer to that prayer. Hopefully we can continue teaching them and help them build their faith.
Well thats about all I have for today. I love you all and hope you all have a wonderfull week!
