Well we had exchanges last week where we both just worked in Cañuelas, which is always fun. Storytime, in my first transfer, we did Cañuelas exchanges where I went with a mini-missionary named Elder Padilla (you may remember a foto of me pointing at some baby puppies in a bunch of trash off the side of the road, thats from this) and at one point when we first left the pension and went to where we were gunna work he told me: Yo le sigo (basically lead the way or ill follow you) and i stopped, looked to my left, and then we knocked on the door of the house i saw. she let us in and we taught lesson 1, the restoration. well after 5 months (this tuesday) i went back to this house. this woman, mother, and grandmother who has a hole in her throat from smoking had since recieved all the missionary lessons and lost her mother. She recognized me and we had a very sweet conversation where me and my companion at the time shared our testimonies and she had thought the misisonaries were never gunna come back and yes it was as awesome as it sounds.
Then later in the week we were talking to our recent convert who was in a ton of pain and hadnt come to church since pull out a pack of cigarettes and start to smoke. no missionary should ever have to watch that. we left haha. then after trying to contact our investigators, we got a hold of one of em who told us to come back to her house in an hour and a half after we waited forever to talk to her, we came back, waited forever, but she never came nor answered her cell phone. after that i saw out of the corner of my eye another investigator whos super awesome, but when i looked at him, he turned away and kindof tried to hide from me haha so i was feeling pretty discouraged.
still none of em have come to church but we have a lot of set times to return and a couple new ones who are very promising, and the mom of the elders quorum president just got back from her mission in the veracruz mexico temple, so we had an awesome sunday, and now im facing my last week (almost garunteed) here in las flores which is kindof sad but also exciting.
its been one of them classic missionary rollercoaster weeks but were still having a good time, we have a lot of money for some reason so the foods great, and were working harder than we ever have, and the weather has improved a ton. never lose hope! when i was super discouraged i decided to just work until i found a miracle even if it took another year and a half in the cold without success. and then i found a four leaf clover. picture proof to come.
