¡Hola! Another week has passed!
It has been another great week in Argentina! I have the answer´s to the questions that mom sent! I love answering these it gives me something to write about and it is fun to answer them! Our schedule on Sundays for the church is actually a little different than Sundays in Utah. We will go look for investigators also to try and bring to church as well. They have priesthood the first hour at 9 o clock Argentine time then we have regular classes the second hour then we end with sacrament meeting starting at 11 and ending at 12. The rest of the day we go out and try to look for new investigators or visit recent converts that didn´t come. Really our day of rest is Mondays! It is funny I joke with Elder Mattinson that I can´t tell the difference between aand any other day!
The best thing this week was the temple! I haven´t been to the temple since the last week in the MTC so that was a really neat experience! I could understand so much more than the last time I went which helps me know the Spanish is coming along well! I still remember the first week in the MTC when we first went to the temple and I didn´t understand anything! Now I can understand the majority of it and even though there are still things hard to understand I can understand most of it! We also had a training with President Robertson before we went into the temple. He is an awesome mission president! He does a really good job! Anyways the temple was awesome! It was a refresher for the week!
The worst thing this week was probably just chasing a couple of cockroaches in our apartment with some bug killer spray! It was actually kind of fun though! The temperature is about somewhere between 75-85 degrees Fahrenheit.
We had an interesting experience with a drunk guy we had talked to, he stopped us on the street and started talking about the gospel with us. He was way drunk but he started telling us about the restoration and the church. He said he talked to some elders about 5 years ago and was really interested in talking with us. (But he was drunk) When we were done talking we didn´t really think much of it. Later in the week there was a church activity in the ward and he actually came! He was sober this time thank goodness, but he talked with us about how he wanted to change his life. Elder Mattinson invited him to be baptized and he accepted a date in April! Hopefully it doesn't fall through but it was a really interesting experience and definitely made me realize that you can´t just judge someone by first impressions. It made me realize how important it is to see everyone out here as children of our Heavenly Father. When you see people like that out here it really helps you to be able to love the people more and stay focused on the work. That is something I have learned for sure this week.
Anyways I am excited for conference this week! I´m sure you guys are all excited as well too! Remember that there will be tough days in our lives and sometimes we wonder if we can go on, but as we ACT having faith in the Lord that things will get better, they will! He loves you more than you can imagine! His work is to bring to pass the imortality and eternal life of man, and that is exactly why He sends missionaries all around the world! That is why He helps them learn another language or overcome sicknesses and challenges. Because He loves all His children and desires happiness for them just as earthly parents desire happiness for their children as well. Anyways those are just a few of the things I have learned this week. Can´t believe another week has passed! Next thing I know a year will pass then 2 years! Anyways I just want to let all of you know how much I love you and appreciate the emails and support I get from you guys! It means so much to me to read about what is going on in everyone´s lives! Can´t wait to talk to you all again next week! Love you all!
