Week 95 7-17-17 San Martin de los Andes

Sorry i forgot to write my letter last week!!!

This week was pretty crazy!! I had to go to Neuquen for 3 day to renew my ID becasue I'm illegal right on the edge. I got back Thursday in the middle of the night and it has already snowed a good amount. Friday we couldn't leave because it snowed all day and we got like 1 and half feet. The power was also out for 3 days....We had the baptism of Kiara for Saturday but we had to move it for the next week... :( We worked on Saturday, we went an visited Melani and her mom made torta fritas, pan con Chicharrón, and mate cocido. It was great. Melani wants to get baptised just needs to go to church....  On Sunday we hitch hiked to get to church and we then had to shovel out all of the snow. I can now say that it sucks to live in the snow because i have had to do everything hahah We had a the sacrament meeting only and then was like 20 people.  It was really short but good. Not a lot happened this week but yeah!! We have transfers this week but I think I'm going to stay here for my last transfer. Well I love you guys!!

Week 93 7-03-17 San Martin de los Andes

This week was crazy with all the changes. On Thursday, President called us and my comp got called as assistant. I was in a trio for a little bit and my new comp got here on Friday at like 10 in the night. My new comp is Elder Nevins from Alabama. A good o'l country guy haha .

In church we had Kiara and Valeria who are progressing a lot. Valeria started the papers to get divorced so they are just waiting for them to get back. It should be like 3 weeks but hopefully sooner. Kiara is getting baptized the 15th and she is great. We are also working with Melani who is the daughter of another less active. She is awesome and understands a lot but just needs to go to church. The ward is doing really good and the zone too. This week we could have 5 baptisms!!! We just need to work a ton.

Well i miss and love you guys!!!!

Week 92 6-26-17 San Martin de los Andes

This week we had a lot of work! We were able to put 2 new fechas and they are both part member families. We have a lot of investigators here that are part member family which is great. It makes the work so much easier sometimes. The 2 new fechas are Kiara who has 9 and Melani who has 11. They are super awesome. We have been contacting a ton and we have found a good amount of new investigators. We also found a black dude that is from Haiti but lived in US and Brasil and now Argentina. It was great to be able to talk with him and we have a cita to visit him again.

I had to go to Neuquen to renew my ID because I'm here illegally right now hahah We traveled 6 hours and 6 hours to return and we were there for 4 hours hahaha. 

We have been teaching a kid called Enzo who is also progressing a lot. He is 20 and believes in God but he doesn't haha He has been reading and praying so he should be baptized soon. Well that was my week!! We also had a lot of sucks haha 

Love you all!

Week 91 6-19-17 San Martin de los Andes

I'm really good. Enjoying beautiful San Martin. We had snow this week but it melted the same day. The mountains do have a ton of snow and its pretty awesome. The area is good. We have some good investigators and we should have a good amount of baptism this transfer. We are working with a couple of less active families that have people that can be baptized. One family has the wife called Valeria. They came to church this week but we are waiting for her husband to get divorced and then they have to get married......Welcome to Argentina hahah

They have Fathers day here too. Yesterday we ate with a father and we had a feast hahah We had Locro, Empanadas, and chichen and chorizo!!! Locro is a stew that they make here. Its super traditional and has a little bit of everything haha a ton of different meats, beans, and a lot of squaw. 

The ward is really big and a lot of people to help us which is going to be great!! The conference with Elder Maynes in Bariloche was awesome. We took a private bus with all of the missionaries in the south at 3 in the morning. I have slept a ton on buses this week haha Elder Maynes talked a ton about Opening Our Mouth. The way he teaches is super great. He talked about doctrine and then how to apply it and then doctrine again! I love it!! 

Well Love you all!!!
