October 12th 2015

Buen día!!

Hows everyone? Thank you for your emails and support. This week was pretty good for us, a lot of stress and a lot of work but I am learning a lot of new things. I am still LOVING being here in Resistencia and being with my main man Elder Miles. This week, on monday, I did divisions with Elder Webster in La Leonesa. Elder Webster has 10 weeks in the mission but he is a great elder, he speaks spanish like a boss and he can already direct his own area. His companion, Elder Ware, goes home in a week. La Leonesa is a tiny little tiny on the outskirts of Resistencia. So that was fun. Also, while I was in Corrientes I made really good friends with an ex missionary named Gabby. He served in Brazil and hes been back for 2 years now. I was talking with him one day and he told me that he baptized EVERY WEEK of his mission. Its given that it is Brazil and they baptize insanely.. but that is still really impressive. He told me that the secret is just talking to every human that you see, because God puts the prepared people in our way. So I was thinking about all of that this week and we decided to call him to see if he could come and work with us for a day so that we can learn from him. We called him and he was super excited to come help us, he came all the way out from Corrientes to be with us for one day. Well, we learned A TON from him. The lessons that we had were amazing. So that was definitely the highlight of the week, he taught us a lot about how to talk to people and how to teach to the necessites of the investigator. So that was on wednesday, and then after that all week we were in a trio, one of the missionaries here got really sick so his companion had to stay with us for 3 days. So its been a busy hectic week, we havent had a single day like to ourselves. But ive learned a lot, its been great. AND, GOOD NEWS, Sebastian and Antonela came to church on sunday. Woot!! Sebastian is 20 years old, Antonela is 15 years old. Sebastians uncle is a member that lives next door to him, so we got the reference from him and we have been teaching them for 2 weeks, and they finally came to church. I think Antonela really liked it, she made a lot of good friends and she looked really happy. They are golden, its just that they live together, so they cant get baptized. Theyll probably have to stop living together if they want to get baptized. Thats argentina for ya. 

We had a cool experience this week. On tuesday night we were planning for the next day and we didnt have anyone to visit. So we decided that we were just going to put the name of a street down and we were going to talk to every person we see until we find the person that God is preparing for us. So we put down the street Mendoza and we prayed to God to help us find the person. We went there, we knocked the first door, and out comes a man from the family grocery store next door, and calls us over. So we go over, and he says that thats his house, and this grocery store next door is his family business. And then a guy comes out that was his uncle, who is a member from the zone below us whose daughter served a mission and is a super faithful member. So we started talking, and this guy that we found is awesome. Super prepared. And then we had a lesson with him on saturday night and it was amazing. His name is Eduardo. He didnt come to church but he has a lot of potential. So that was just a cool little miracle for us, a true evidence that God is watching over us and will prepare the way for us if we just talk with everyone. 

This coming week should be really good, I will be doing divisions with Elder Johnson from Las Palmas, another small town an hour away from Resistencia. Things are going great. I hope that you are doing well, thank you for your emails and support!
