Well this was a pretty great week and we continue to see the hand of the lord in this wonderfull work!
First off I would like to start with Sergio. You may remember that he came to church 2 times but we were never able to find his house. Well we lost contact with him because he didn´t come to church last week. But on Saturday just before leaving the apartment in the morning my comp and I prayed that we could find Sergio again. As we were walking to lunch lo and behold we found Sergio! He was busy doing some errands and stuff but we told him that later in the afternoon we had an english class in the church and he said he would be there. He came to english and after we had a charla with him and we invited him to be baptized. He accepted. We had a prayer at the end of the lesson and he said it. We told him to pray to know if these things were true. After the prayer he told us I know this is true. It was so awesome. The Lord really had prepared Sergio and if all goes well he could be baptized this weekend. We are so blessed and I know that Heavenly Father answers prayers.
So this week was had interviews with the president. The were awesome. The assistants did a workshop about the atonement while president was calling everyone for their interview. The workshope was awesome. They had a bag of charcol and we had to get our hand all dirty and stuff. and they tied it in with our missionary purpose and how through baptism we can be clean again. The interview with president was great. He told me as well that it is very likely that I will be leaving Zapala at the end of the transfer so we will see how that goes.
So last night I was able to watch the broadcast. It was pretty awesome. I love it how that showed how through little small things like inviting people can help people accept the gospel. It really made me excited about the work in the future.
Well I love you all and I hope you have a wonderfull week!

Dear Elder Hudgins:
I am so hoping that you are receiving my e-mails. I was told by Victoria’s mother that I wasn’t sending hers to Rome the right way. You don’t need to write back because I talk to your parents all of the time, but I do hope you get my messages.
You are doing a marvelous work. It is amazing that you found Sergio after your prayer. I hope he is baptized. You are one of the finest missionaries because you are really helping people come to Christ. That is the purpose of our Gospel and you are so happy and productive going about the work of the Lord. May He bless you always.
Thanks for the post Marianne. I know how much it means to Elder Hudgins to receive that support from home.
