Week 11: Un Mes, April 11, 2016

One month in the field! They say the first month or two or three go by the slowest, but this month seems like it went by kinda quick. Anyway, recently in Las Flores its been raining like crazy. Our shoes, bikes, and slacks have been pretty much caked in mud recently, but its kinda fun.

Well we are improving everyday, me and Elder Derbez, and my Spanish is doing the same! We were supposed to have 2 baptisms this Saturday, and they both looked like they were gunna fall through thanks to Satan the Serpent, but we might be able to still have one. Will we triumph regardless, and the work outside of those 2 individuals is going great regardless. We might have to travel a lot this week again so thats another reason we may not have all the baptisms. They´ll come eventually, my trainer has taught me a lot about how when Elder Bednar came to Argentina he talked a lot about being patient with investigators, so we´re not worried.
Big shot out to a couple of my best bros!: Allison and Calvin! DJ Fur and Freaking Allison Potter herself! They got married! Its crazy, but its awesome, and i love em both and theyre both amazing, wonderful people!
Alls good down here, love you all! I will make you proud by working as hard as you´d want me to, if you make me proud by growing your testimony and giving a little more to the Lord each week!
Also really great passage of scripture I came across this week: 1 Nephi 17: 41-52!
Also this week our District Leader and his mini-missionary companion came and ended up having to stay the night because they missed the last bus back home, me and the District Leader stayed up talking so late that I lost my voice from lack of sleep and talking a bunch. But its coming back!
3 pics this week:
Hilarious little roundabout in Las Flores. They have a lot of them, and their usually these white obelisk things or just grass, but this dirty tiny one just has a beat up metal trash can on it haha. Made me laugh. Sorry Argentina.
This is Elder Derbez and Rodrigo, the twelve year old son of one of our investigators with a Baptismal date. He´s borrowing Elder Derbez´s tie and nametag.
Still havent tried it yet but heres an Argentinian Barbeque, they smell amazing, and I get hungry every time I see it.

Love you!

Elder Gibson
