Week 81: Rasband? August 28, 2017

Well we had Stake Conference yesterday. It was a big ol multinational conference thing where Elder Rasband, whos a boss, and Craig C. Christensen and another woman whose name was forgotten unto me, the President of the First Primary Presidency. She talked about how if we want strawberries, we gotta plant strawberries. We cant plant carrots and expect strawberries. Good life lesson. Also Edler Rasband told all the members that they need to be better member missionaries.

Also el Tuesday we helped the Stake Missionary Prep class, which went super well! Most of the youth in there are from our ward, but we taught about how the Atonement applies to missionary work, and it went super well!
And the Family Paso Guillén had a super rough week these last 2 weeks, cuz Josecito got sick and went to the hospital and was there for a week and then the mom got sick and the gave her an operation (english?) last sunday, and she was super bad afterwards, like throwing up and stuff. But then when she was back home we gave em both blessings and the next day they were both waay better. Now the mom is alot happier to see us haha. Priesthood power anyone? So yeah.

Week 79: BsAs Capital, August 14, 2017

Well my comp, awhile back in his mission, had some sort of skin problem, so he had a..i dont know what itd be called..he had a specific date that he needed to go back to the hospital, but the hospital they have us go to here in the mish is located super far from where we live, so we went to this huge place called Plaza Constitución, which is a giant dope train station, then we went to Temperley, where the hospital is, and then to Lomas, both right next to my old area Banfield 1. It was pretty cool! We took advantage and went to lunch in Burger King there. It took the whole day though, cuz we live super far away.

Other then that this went wasnt the most successful I´ve had, but I have a feeling this next week is gunna be super good. Also we had a district activity today where we played soccer and I mixed a couple different types of soda that ive been experimenting with recently to get the closest thing to Mountain Dew possible, so that was enjoyable. Then we went and had choripan. So it was super fun. Not sure I have any pictures this week, but I also dont even have much time, so I`mma leave it at that! Love you all! Have a good week! Winston Van Gibson is number 1!

Love you!

Week 78: Late to the Zone Conference, August 7, 2017

Well, this week went by super quick and it was a pretty solid week, even though on thursday we had a zone conference and activity and me and my comp got there about an hour and a half late and he kinda hurt his leg in the activity. So its been interesting since then, but we got there late cuz we barely missed the train, then my comp knew how to get there in bus, but we wouldve had to take like 3 buses, we went anyway, then realized, after taking the first bus, that it probably wasnt gunna work that well, so we went to the nearest train station to where we had gotten off, and the train took awhile to get there. But we were finally on our way. We get there, and we had to switch trains and take a super old dope one, that took forever to get there of course, then we werent sure where to get off, so we ended up gettin off 1 station early and walking the rest of the way to the stake center of a different stake. So that was a blast. but we made it finally, had the meeting, went super well, then we played soccer with a bunch of other missionaries.

Oh yeah! I also did the first intercambios ever of a new elder in our district! His name is Elder Gonzalez and hes my DLs comp and hes from San Juan, Argentina! Hes super dope. we had a good time. heres a pic!
Well! Gotta go, my family had an awesome family reunion this last week, i saw some pictures, and im glad everyone was safe! Love you guys!

Love you!
