Hey everyone. Well this has been a pretty sick week here in Zapala with a lot of cool stuff happening.
First I will start off with the familia Rodriguez. Oh my goodness this family is like every missionary´s dream. They are soooo awesome. Family is the mom, Carina, and she has 3 daughters and 1 son, Micaela, Laura, Tiara, and Lucas. They are all so awesome. We had actually contacted them about a month ago but we could never find when the mom was home. So the other night we finally were able to talk to Carina outside and everything was just awesome. She was super interested and said that she had been looking for a church for her kids for sometime now and they only live a half a block from the chuch here. So she told us to come back another day with a member so we could enter and teach them. And man it was just a sweet first lesson. They are so prepared. All the kids were involved and asking questions and all accepted the invitation so be baptized. They are so prepared, especially Micaela. She is 17 and has been investigating churches for a while. After the first lesson she told us she read the chapter and she even read more. She said that is just gave her more ganas to read after reading the first chapter. We invited them to church but unfortunatly Laura got sick and ther weren´t able to go. But we stoped by at night and they said sí o sí they will be going next week. We really are super blessed to find this family.
Anyway we also had another sweet miracles this week. One day were were trying to find an old investiagtor and happend to find a less active family. They said they had only lived in the house for a year so they were kind of lost and none of the church members new where they lived. But we found them and talked to them for a while. They have had a lot of problems adjusting to their new home and the new neighborhood. We found out that she also has a son that is 10 years old that is not a member. So this week we started to teach them and hopefully we can help them progress.
Also there was the familia Barraza. They are a family have have been members of the church for a long time. Sealed in the temple and everything. The hermano was bishop also but they have been inactive for about 8 years now. The other week the temple presidend from Buenos Aires came and had a fireside. They went and then the next day they came to church. They have a kid that need to be baptized as well. So hopefully we can help this family as well come back into full activity again.
So also some really crazy news. Elder Lunsdskog is being transfered to Neuquen. My new companion is going to be Elder Wagstaff! Man i´m super excited. This transfer sure is going to be a sweet one.
Well I love you all and hope you have an amazing week!
