Hello everyone back at home! Thank you all for the wonderfull letters! Well this sure was a great week and a crazy one as well. Well I guess now you could say that that is pretty normal. But this week we finished all the interviews so now we can actually focus on the work in the area a little more. Its fun getting back to normal a little bit and teaching people. We had a lesson with the Rios family and they are doing great. They really are progressing well. Hermana Rios is really having a lot of trials but she is doing great and staying strong. They really are being blessed for all the things they are doing. Its really great to see that in them.
This week has been pretty fun because we received 3 new missionaries in the mission. All three of them were waiting visas and now they have finally come here. Its great too see new faces and also to see people that are really excited to be here in Argentina. We started doing transfers this week. It has been a little tough. It is the biggest transfer that this mission has ever seen. With all the new missionaries coming and also with the visa waiters coming there are 41 new missionaries in the mission! That is crazy! There are only 5 missionaries that are going home this transfer so we almost don´t know what to do with so many. We are already opeing 12 new areas and all that so we most likely will have to start doing some trios. Today we are also going to Rincón de los Sauces with president which is a place that missionaries have never been. President has been in contact with a former bishop from Buenos Aires that recently moved there for work. He has been in contact with a couple other members there in Rincon. Also this last week a man stopped us on the street. His name is Juan. He said that he has been member for his whole life but about its been about 10 years since he has been to church. He was living in Rincon but now he is here in Neuquen. But he has 3 kids and his brother, who is a member, who all live in Rincon. Juan came to church this last week and we had a visit with him in his home this week and he really liked it and is really excited to return to the church. He is going to be in Rincon today and we will meet up with him to meet his family. So it should be a pretty fun day. With all these new missionaries we are in a position to put missionaires there in Rincon so hopefully we can get something started up there soon. It really is an awesome experience seeing the expantion of the church like that. Its an honor to be part of it. It really is the fulfilling of many prophesies these days!
Well we are leaving this morning at 9 so I don´t have too much more time but I love you all!
