Well hello everyone back home! Its been a really fun tranquilo week here in Neuquen but also a fun one going around and doing some intercambios with the elders. One Monday we were able to go out to Roca. It was my first time out there really. On monday night we went to a baptism for the zone leaders there. Its was a really amazing experience. The investigator´s family has been members for quite some time now but the dad never got baptized. But he finally dicided to do it and monday was his wife´s birthday and it was a surprise for her. She didn´t know it was her husbands baptism she was going to until he walked in as the service started. It was a pretty amazing. On tuesday we did intercambios with the elders in Roca. I was with Elder Hunsaker and we had a lot of fun together. We had a really good day with a lot of success so that was cool.
This week we have been focusing a lot on finding new investigators because the investigators we have now aren´t progressing as much as we would like. So we have been going through the area book and we were able to find a couple of really cool people. We have some appointments tonight so that exciting. Last night we also went to teach a contact we made the other day. We found out that he is a member. We asked him if he had desires to come back to church. He said that he wouln´t have let us in if he didn´t. He has a wife and two kids that are 10 and 1. We started to talk to his wife a little bit but she has to go because the little daughter was beeing a little fussy. But he committed to come back to church. He is really excited about it. So hopefully now we will be albe to help all the family come to church and know about the gospel.
So we wern´t able to any of the transfers this week because we found out only yesterday how many missionaries we will be getting this next transfer. But we found out we are getting 28 missionaries. What the crazy thing is that there are now missionaries leaving this transfer. So that means we are opening a ton of new areas! So thats the cool news thats going aroung the office. We are really excited about it.
Well I love you all and hope you have an amazing week! I´m sorry about the lack of pictures I have been really lazy about it. I´ll repent. I love you all!
