Exciting Week

June 22, 2014

Well this week has been super exciting. We played soccer today! My goal is to practice with the Argentinos and get really good! And we ate empanadas! que ricas!!  Feliz día del Padre!

Wow we had two confirmation Sunday (and a baby blessing). It was so beautiful. all three talked about the temple. And the confirmations said how God is happy with the decisions they are making and is proud of them :):)  I just love my converts. They are all so cute! There are so many really really good people here in Congreso! and in Sacrament meeting someone gave a talk about some experiences from his mission and he said, "I served in the hermosa tierra de Paraguay" and ever since that I always look at the ground and think WOW I JUST LOVE THIS TIERRA (land or also means dirt). because its Argentina. I love everything about Argentina. REALLY YOU GUYS NEED TO EXPERIENCE THIS.

Update on David. He is doing really well. He saw the baptismal service of Melody and Juankarlo and liked it and felt good about everything but still wanted to be sure. So he prayed and asked God if baptism was really the right thing for him or if not give him a sign and tell him in someway. The next day he was chatting with his aunt and found out that his son (10 years old) who lives with his mom (they´re seperated) is a member of the church!! and He said "I took that as my sign/answer. that I know baptism is what God wants for me"  wowwwwwww. what great faith. I know that God hears and answers our prayers and questions!! All we need to do is ask more!

Also we got a HUGE book of Mormon for one of our investigators who can´t read because he can´t see very well. We are so excited that he can start reading. and it made us value the Book of Mormon even more because we were searching for one with big letters for so long. and carried it around all day. and with a little more sacrifice made it so much sweeter when we could actually give it and explain how important and special this book is.   And our last lesson with him, his niece and nephew (21 años) came home and joined us. IT WAS AWESOME. We had a great lesson. They understood everything and had good questions. With the whole family together there was such a neat atmosphere of unity and also fun (they had good jokes and related things well to our lives). We have an appointment with them tomorrow and WE´RE STOKED. can´t wait.

ohhhhh, also DAVID investigator fed the missionaries saturday. haha, it was so fun and he was so so excited!
