What a fast week!

Hola Familia!!

This week went by really really fast! It feels like just yesterday that I was writing you guys but it was a good week!

So some people have no idea what they are doing because like 3 missionaries told me that Thanksgiving was this last Thursday and I have no idea so I just believed them. But I will be sure to make those mashed potatoes this week! :)

Starting out on Monday last week we had a couple awesome days. It was a day that we just looked back and knew that everything that happened was exactly what needed to happen! We were able to teach a few people and we also met this guy named F. he is awesome, he is in his 70s and was almost baptized when he was 13 but his parents said no. he also lived in New York for a few years and speaks pretty good English. But he drove up to us in front of our apartment and told us to pray for him because he doesn't feel good. We got talking and we invited him to go to the church that night so that we could talk with him more and he agreed. On our way we wanted to stop and take a recent convert member with us and we go to his house and he was singing (like mic and speakers status!) haha so he couldn't hear the doorbell. We finally got him to come out and by the time we got to the church Francisco had come and left because he thought he went to the wrong place. But we are gonna try to work with him. We have not been able to find him again this week yet. 

On Tuesday we were able to give a blessing to an 11 day old baby. He is sooo cute and soo small! it was so spiritual because literally as we opened our eyes at the end of the blessing he smiled big. To me that was him saying thanks. He may not have understood what was said but he felt the spirit. So cool!

We have been trying really hard this week to polish up our rough edges. Believe it or not, I have a few haha but we have been trying to be more dedicated and diligent and we are already starting to see the blessings from  it. Our zone is really starting to do a lot better and we are getting excited for them! 

One day this week, i don't remember... we had to go to the bus station to wait with one of the sisters who was waiting for her comp. But she cant be alone so we being her zone leaders had the amazing chance to go sit there for 4 hours..... haha it wasn't that bad i guess. But while we were there we saw these 3 kids who were just straight out of Europe! haha I started talking to them in English and they are from Denmark and were here in South America for 3 months just traveling around alone. Pretty cool, they are active members of the Methodist church and we talked a little bit about the things we believe in and it was really interesting to learn more about their church. 

So yes the package was not touched and i got the triple. And the shoes are awesome, They are now my meeting shoes so I will keep them nice as long as possible! But I'm glad you are all doing well!! love you guys and have a great week!!

10 Months!?!

Hola mi Familia!
I hope everyone is doing well! We had a little bit of a tough week but its all good! We have had to drop a few.... almost all of our investigators because none of them were really progressing and 2 of them do not have permission from their parents to get baptized so finding new people is kinda becoming the trend of my mission :P haha
So I finally got that package that you sent in August!!! after 4 months of waiting so I hope you have not already bought another triple.... but I liked it and I have been wearing the bracelet that Coley made for me. Thanks Coley!
This last Monday we went to this place called a mayoria, its like Costco and we bought a bunch of cereal and milk because it is a lot cheaper in bulk. It was kinda an adventure taking it on the public bus with us on the hour ride home but so worth it!
This week we found a less active member who actually has been working for NuSkin the last few months and actually having a lot of success! It was bad talking to her though because it distracted us for the next like hour talking about businesses and stuff that we are gonna do after the mission, but anyways she met one of the Roneys here in Rosario last week and stuff.
You have no idea how bad the cockroaches were... last Monday we literally killed 80 in one night. we used an entire can of Raid and just went hard in the paint! we don't know if that took care of it or if we still need to get someone to come but we will just play it by ear or by # of deaths if you will  ;)
I did an exchange this week with one of the district leaders and his companion. I was actually in the other area with Elder Martinez, he is from Guatemala and it was really fun and kinda weird because their area is really close to Las Heras so a lot of the streets cross into both areas but it was really fun! My area is kinda big and we are further north in Rosario. the intersection of Peligrini and Pedro Lino Funes is roughly the middle of our area if you want to look it up.
In this area we teach and English class on Wednesday nights in the church, it was really interesting to teach English... I'm not that good at it believe it or not! But we had a lot of fun with the kids and hopefully we will get better at it.
So you asked about my companion. He is from Bahia Blanca and is 21 years old. He was born in the church and is a pretty all around guy. Sports, church, work, family all the goods. We actually end up talking about work and business ideas a lot. He wants to move to the US and work at some point in his life. He speaks pretty decent English, (his mom and future wife are both English teachers).
Really cool this this week, We went to visit this family who has been inactive for a long time. He used to be the bishop and hasn't been to church in years. We went and just chatted with them for a bit and then planned to have a FHE with them. They ended up not being able to have FHE..... but they went to church!!!!!! :) way better and we were pumped to see them! That is true happiness right there!
You also asked about my new zone. So we are the ZLs and there are 4 districts in our zone. We have the biggest zone in our mission. It is kinda spread out because our zone is going to split soon and then it wont be quite so big.
I love you all and hope you have a great week! Work hard, be good, and smile :)
