Hello everyone! I´m glad to hear that you are all doing well. Well this week was unlike any other with difficulties with health and trials in the work and also with some miracles sprinkled on top.
So thisweek both Elder Irala and I came down with a nasty cold which really made it hard for us to work. And also while we worked it seemed like all of our appointments would fall through. It was Saturday and we had barely taught any lessons. But on Saturday we had a great day. We found a part member family called the Familia Saavedra. The hermana Saavedra has been less active for about 6 or 7 years. She is maried to a non member and her son is 9 years old and not baptized. We found them and got to know them and talked about how the gospel of Jesus Christ had blessed her life. We committed them to come to church and the Hermana came with her two sons. It was great because she came even though she has been pretty sick this whole week. It was great to see them in church and she said she really loved it. So we will continue to work with them. I was a nice blessing.
The other blessing we recieved was we finally found a really good old investigator that we Elder Irala had lost contact with. Her name is Veronica and she is awesome. She has a strong desire to be baptized but the thing that is holding her up is that she is not married and the guy she is living with doesn´t have much of a desire to get married. Elder Irala told me that when they were teaching her before that she started to cry when she found out she couldn´t be baptized. And then after that we couldn´t find her. But we finally found her again this week and she said that she was having a lot of problems and said she felt really for just leaving us like that. But she said that she had been reading the Book of Mormon and still has a desire to be baptized more than ever now. We had a great lesson with her. Elder Irala was really happy to be able to find her again and we are really excited to start teaching her again. Hopefully we can help her make this important step in her life so she can receive the blessing of the gospel.
Well, last week I mentioned that we were going to Primeros Pinos but on our way there the car broke down and we weren´t able to make it. But we had a good experience and we still had a good time.
This is the last week of the transfer and it sure is going to be a crazy one with a lot of traveling. On tuesday night we go to Neuquen for zone leader council then we go straight to San Martin for the capaciacion and then we come back on Thursday in the evening and then on Friday morning we go to Cutral Co for another capacitacion. So hopefully I will find some sleep somewhere in there. It should be pretty crazy. Well I love you all and hope you all have a wonderfull week!

Dear Elder Hudgins:
It sounds like the work is going forward. You look great. Sorry your car broke down.
I am happy you have interested investigators.
I am so happy your father is in the bishopric now. He bore his testimony yesterday. It was awesome. Marianne Burgoyne
