Week 53: Miracles in the rain!

Hello to all the world! 

It's been another great week! I'm loving still here in Argentina, we've been working super hard Elder González and I, it's been a super great week so I'll jump straight to some of the highlights!

First off, we had a wonderful district activity last week, it was amazing, we did an obstacle course type thing that our district leader Elder Rushton organized, it only had one flaw, in this part where you had to to the wheelbarrow with your companion, there were a bunch of thorns on the ground that no one saw so it was a little painful, but other than that it was super fun!! 

On Wednesday we had an exchange, I went with Elder Price, he's from California, but he lived in American Fork Utah before he came on the mission. It was super great! It rained ALL DAY! Haha! We didn't have any appointments, so we went looking for people to teach, old investigators or people that they had contacted, and we did a bunch of contacts. I was using the classic Mr. Mac coat, when after about an hour in the rain, I realized that it is NOT water proof!! Haha! So we started getting a little wet, but we continued enjoying the day! We contacted a house that sells these little popsicles for 2 pesos, (15 cents) and we bought some and they thought we were crazy or something like that because it was super cold and raining and we were buying popsicles! But we enjoyed them still and we went on our way! At the end of the day we found one of the investigators that they hadn't taught in about a week and we brought a member over to her house and we had a super lesson with her. We put a baptismal date and you could feel the spirit testifying the whole time, and we could see that we had helped her! Blessings of working in the rain, you know it!!

Right now we have 2 potential baptisms for this week!!! WHOO!! The first one is the son of a less active family, he's called Luciano, he's super great, he loves listening and learning, but we'll have to see if his family is going to commit to help him come to the church every week! The ward has a great plan so we're hoping that it'll work! And the other is Olindo!! I don't know if you remember him, but his is the brother of a recent convert family, he is 81 years old and we hadn't been able to find him for about 2 weeks! Then on Thursday we get a call from his family saying that he is there in their house! We ran on over real quick and he was there!! Whoo! He said he was really sick for 2 weeks so he couldn't leave his house much, but now he is ready to be baptized this Sunday!! WHOO!!

And as well, the last quick highlight I think would have to be the "Consejo de Liderazgo" or the Leadership Council, I think it's called! It was amazing, we had a council with president and all of the zone leaders and the sister training leaders and as all of the mission leaders. We talked about the mission and we made a bunch of ideas for a big project that we are going to do as a mission this year for Christmas, it's going to be great!! President did an activity with us about being creative, he taught us about how we form ideas, that really it doesn't work with a blank sheet, you need to have a source of where you can take and make the ideas. It was awesome!! 

Anyways, that's about the week for you all! I hope that you are doing great!!  I'll put a few photos that I took with my companions camera! Love you all!! Chau!
