Febuary 8th, 2016

Hola hola!

How is everyone? This was a great week for us. The best news is that we put a baptismal date with Noelia and she is going to be baptizedthis saturday!! woohoo! Finally we are going to have a baptism in Rio Negro. That same day one of the investigators of the sister missionaries (Raul) will be baptized as well. So its going to be a great day. This coming week we are going to have 4 baptisms in the zone! So its going to be a great week for us. This last week the sister missionaries in Barrio 2 had a baptism, a man named Jose Luis, I did the baptismal interview for him, and he is  a super cool guy, I became good friends with him. He is an accountant and is making a small movie about a particular neighborhood in Resistencia, and he said he will give me a free copy. So we are hoping to have a great upcoming week. 

As well this past week an investigator that we have named Andrés came to church. He is good friends with a less active member that we just reactived named Lucas. Andrés is sincerely praying for an answer to see if this is the truth and he is reading the Book of Mormon.. so we are excited for him and we hope that he feels that he recieves an answer. A lot of the guys in the ward became friends with him and everything is going good. 

On friday we went to the Canciano family again. Remember them? They were the family of Toba indians that are members that we went and hiked out to the middle of nowhere to their house to visit them and all the streets were flooded with water and stuff. Well we went again, and this time it wasnt flooded! They are a super special family. One of the daughters of the family likes to do oragami, and she gave me this really pretty crane decoration thing that she made by herself. They dont have much, so her giving that to me was super special. And right before we left, they made this drink for us called azucar quemado (burnt sugar). What it is is they put a bunch of sugar in like a coffee mug, and then they put hot coals on the sugar and all the sugar burns up and steams as you stir it around with your spoon. Its so cool! And then after a few second of the hot coals in there, they put boiling water in there. And thats all there is to it. But it is SO GOOD!! It has a really good taste. They say that its a traditional drink from their tribe from since a long ago. So that was a way cool experience, I will have to show you guys how to make it when we are camping or something.

Everything is going great! This coming week should be good, we have consejo (zone leader counsel) tomorrow and then we will have our zone meeting as well. I have a super strong testimony that I know that I am serving God in his true church, I love the mission and I love all that I am learning. I know that its the true church because I feel it so strongly every time that I teach the restoration, I know the gospel has been restored and it makes me happy. Thanks for all your love and support, I hope that you have a great weeek!
