Blog Letter 5/25/2015

Hello everyone!

This week has been great, I have learned a lot and felt the Spirit a lot as well. I don't have a lot of time to write because the branch is having an activity. The 25 de mayo is a HUGE holiday in Argentina. They always eat a traditional soup called Locro. It cooked in a huge pot that looks like a witches pot and cooked over a fire. It's filled with corn, beans, meat, sausage, spices, and of course...pigs feet. There is nothing like a good well cooked Locro. It takes about 3 hourse to cook, and is one of the most expensive meals they have here. So, we are doing an activity and it should be a lot of fun. 

We are working hard, and loving life. Time is short so we have got to start getting things going here. I am loving the work, and this church is true! I love you all!

Saludos a todos!

I hope everyone is doing great. This week for me has been really awesome!

We have a lot of great things going on, and a lot of great things that have already came. Just a couple of highlights on the week:

We are working with a hermana in the ward here to help her build her house, we are doing a lot of service, that normal missionaries would not do, but as branch president it becomes a large responsibility, the word for bricklayer in Spanish is Albañil.  I have learned a lot about how Argentine's build houses. 

We also had our zone meeting and we ate some delicouse pizzas, and cake. The cake is made of chocolate cake with dulce de leche frosting with chocolate covering...so its delicouse!! 

We have a new investigator that is doing great, we are hoping to visit him this week and have him tell us that he has read and felt the truch of the book of mormon. He has agreed to be baptized if he recieves and answer! I am super excited. 

The ward is doing great, the unity is going up, and the love they have as well. :) 

We also went to the temple dedication of the Cordoba Temple. We didnt get to go to cordoba, but we participated via satelite in La Paz. It was a lot of fun, and the spirit was amazing. It is great to see the work of the lord Extending, and it is a huge blessing to have another house of the lord here in Argentina. 

I love you all so much! I hope you are doing great!

Hey everyone! 

We just barely had the talk over skype, so this is not going to be a long email! But I hope you are all doing great! This has been a good week, we have had a lot of fun, and we are setting some good goals, and working hard to accomplish them. 

This next Sunday we have the dedication of the Cordoba Temple, it should be a great expirience, we are not going to cordoba unfortunately, but we are going to be able to participate of the dedication via satelite! 

I love you all so much! Stay safe, and read your scriptures!

Well hello everyone! This week has been a great week! I dont have my agenda to be able to tell you about every day of the week, but I can tell you that it has been a great week!

Some of the highlights: We had a really fun Family night here in the church on Friday. A lot of people came, and we had a lot of fun. 

Saturday we got flu shots...I think I scared the nurse, when she stuck the needle in my arm I let out a shout, and started to groan. She looked at me really nervouse...until I started to laugh and she realized I was joking. 

Also transfers: I am now with Elder B. He is from Arizona. He is a great missionary. He has 1 1/2 years in the mission. We are the oldest companionship in the Zone. Elder B. is a hard worker, and knows a lot about how to be a successful missionary. I had met him before in Leadership councils. He was a Zone Leader in rosario, while I was a zone leader in Paraná. 

It was really sad to say goodbye to Elder P. He taught me a lot about how to be a loving missionary. He was full of charity, and really helped me out a lot. It was sad to see him go. 

With the begining of a new transfer we are planning, and setting a lot of goals! We are going to be seeing a lot of success, and we are going to be working hard. Its time to sprint, and not stop! 

I love you all so much!
