This was a great week, we were able to teach a lot more and we are seeing a lot of progress in our investigators. So something crazy I found out last night, there are 46 missionaries who have been waiting for their visas that will be getting here in the next 2 weeks!!!! How awesome is that? They created another zone to help, but the craziest part is that means 46 trainers! everyone will need to step up to help all of them get to work!!
So funny story, this week we were in the grocery store one night looking at stuff and we were talking in English. All of the sudden we hear ¨hello¨ from behind us. We then got to know a woman named Verginia who is from here in Nogoya but she lived in Wales for 10 years! It caught us both really off guard but we had a good little chat with her, we are gonna go visit her sometime.
This week we went up to Parana to have interviews with President Giuliani. He is such an amazing man. He told me that he has so much respect for the missionaries in our zone/stake because we are all working with less than ideal situations and yet everyone works hard and has a lot of faith! It is safe to say the church in our stake struggles a bit.
This week, i don't know if you all remember me talking about V. who is friends with G. and his mom. Well she happened to show up at M´s house one night and we had a great lesson with her. She has really noticed the spirit strongly in our 2 meetings with her.
We also met another one of G´s friends this week named P! He is a stud! He is rocking the dredlocks in a ponytail and is just always super chill. He has been really interested in the church and we taught him a couple of times this week! I fully expect him to continue progressing!
(pics included) This week I had a fun experience with my pants... We were walking in the dirt along a road and there was a piece of barbed wire on the ground, It kinda hooked around my right foot and when I went to step, it slit my left pant leg open... Its not that bad but I talked with one of the members and I think she is gonna try to fix it for me so we will see. What great luck huh?? it was actually pretty funny.
We saw a huge change in G this week, I think that seeing some of his friends start to progress in the gospel is helping him be more dedicated and excited about it all. It is also helping his mom, except I think she may be converting to us more than the church. haha She tells us how much she loves us every time and always tells us how much she will miss us when we have to leave, what charmers we are with the older women ;)
Friday in the middle of the night we had a great experience. I don't know if you saw in the pictures, but here in Argentina it is really common to have this plastic thing above the toilet that holds the water when you flush. Well ours kinda fell off the wall at like 5 in the morning. I woke up to a huge crash and the sound of water spraying all over. So luckily (being guided by the spirit, because I think I was about 80% asleep) I ran in the bathroom and put my finger over the thing. What an easy fix right? Well now we gotta buy a new plastic thingy and have a member fix it for us... lame. So right now to flush we just dump water in the toilet. hahah
So that is it for this week, it was a good week, we are still working hard and I am feeling a lot better (health wise) We will likely have a change next week or the week after so we are gonna finish strong! I love you guys have another great week!
