Week 43: Thanksgiving? November 28, 2016


Week 42: Thanksgiving, November 21, 2016

Spoiler alert, no pictures again. Im workin on it though kindof. Well this week were able to go to a lot of lessons with a member acompanying us (i hope that makes sense in English. they seem to get the gist when i say it in spanish!) so that was super awesome. we found a couple new people to teach, and we were super excited because a bunch of people had commited to come to church, but no one came, so this week were gunna work a little harder with em and get em there.

In Saturday we went to a branch called El Faro and worked in a super poor neighborhood mostly inhibited by paraguayos and bolivianos for a Tormenta Blanca, and were gunna host most of the zone here in Banfield this weekend!
Well the members have been super jacked recently cuz they think were pretty cool, so weve been working to keep them excited and maybe get some activities going. I will be here for Christmas so Im gunna need my temporary ward family here extra happy.
We had another baptismal interview yesterday with a young man who decided to get baptized today, so thats what there up to in Lanus today, the guy is super awesome! So were all pretty jacked too.
The Hermana Garner from Colorado just got here and is being trained by Hermana Shepard here in the ward. She already speaks impressively good spanish and were excited to have her in the squad. I dont have much time left and im sorry my emails have been super short (compared to before atleast) but we keep working and i hope you do too and were all gunna see some miracles this christmas!

Oh yeah this week is Thanksgiving, so I´ll naturally be a little hungrier than normal, but itll be in vain. Have a good week!

Love you!

Week 41: Same, November 14, 2016

Transfers came! Im just gunna chill here in the middle of the suburbs with my buddy Elder Colmán from Paraguay for about 6 more weeks. Ill probably leave after that thought cuz the President doesnt want missionaries being in an area for too long and someone else needs to come in before my comp dies. he dies in february.

So this week we had a baptism on Sunday! It was this woman whose daughter is on a mission. The sisters have been teaching her for a long time and she suddenly decided to get baptized, so we did it! It was super spiritual, and a lot of people came cuz we did it on Sunday so that the mormons would stay instead of not coming on Saturday. So also the Elders in Lanus had a baptism so we had to do both the interviews. We´ve been traveling for a bit this week. Nothing like Las Flores though, we still had some time to find some new people to teach. Also we had exchanges on Tuesday and i have a couple pictues but I probably will have to wait until next week.
Well, not a lot this week but the Hermana Shepard is still gunna be here with a greenie shell train, and our Zone Leaders are changing! I love you all and I love the mission and I love the Lord and he loves us too! ¡Godspeed!

Love you!
