Week 44: Zone Conference! December 5, 2016

So a couple weeks ago they said that for the whole southamerican south area, missionaries could not have zone activities if the president was not present, and a bunch of other rules. Then all the sudden the zone leaders told us that on friday we were all gunna go to this huge chappel super far away (where my companion mexican Elder Bautista is right now) called San Vicente for a zone conference and activity. So we all go together, and the assistants have a taller (thats a spanish word) where they showed a ton of videos of missionaires opening their mission calls, including me, and it was crazy powerful to remember how much sacrifice and excitment had gone into the mission and how sometimes we take that for granted out here in the field. So yeah that was amazing. Then the zone leaders talked about enoc and go and do and the president and his wife talked about how we had beat the mission record with 50 baptisms in November and how we could have so much more too, so then we ate lunch and played football and volleyball with the president and his wife and all left super tired but super jacked for missionary work!

Then on Saturday we had another capilla abierta and tormenta blanca in Banfield 2, which was aight. We got lost in some field train burial ground thing for awhile, but we made it out alive.
Oh and this last Monday we had a district activity. I made rootbeer, the Zone Leaders made some combination of a Uruguay and Panama food, my companion made some Paraguay food, the hermanas made Spinach Smoothie (mostly Hermana Shepard) and the other elders made Hot Dogs. IT was pretty fun!
Super quick week, after the thing on Friday and a lot of traveling to get there and back, we came back super tired and went to work and our first contact we had a lesson and found 6 new investigators who are all super awesome! One of them, Damian, whose 12, speaks English super well and hes crazy smart, another, Matias, is a fan of Juventus too and thats pretty much why i started talking to them, and the grandpas name is Esteban and he tells me to call him Grandpa Steve, which is cool, cuz I have a Grandpa and an Uncle Steve.
Anyway, its goin good down here, they also raised our monthly money thing, so now we can buy more food and its super nice, were gunna do a couple things for christmas, im lovin it, i hope your loving life too, have a good week!

Love you!
