Week 66 12-26-16 Centenario

So this week was really great!

The weather was perfect and we got to help a ton of people. We did a lot of service which was awesome in this time of year. My hands got destroyed but its all good haha We taught a ton of people. We had a couple super good lessons. We found Aurelio who is with the Testigos but we have taught him a couple times and he accepted the BOM. We passed his house and he told us that he was just going to leave( Liar). We started to talk and ask him questions. In the end we showed him a ton of scriptures about questions that he had. He let us in and we taught him more and he said that we have reason with everything and that he was going to read the BOM. It was super awesome.

We also talked with Gabriel but he is working a ton....he is super awesome but its hard. We also had a lesson with Irma and she is progressing a ton. She didnt accept a fecha for baptism but she has a ton of questions and she understands everything. She is just waiting for an answer!! 

Christmas was great. Christmas Eve here is way bigger then Christmas day. We got to stay up until like 12:30. We had dinner with Fabian and then we went to the pension and waited for the fireworks! We have a balcony so it was great to see the fireworks. We then had a really good church meeting. We missed a lot of people but it was good hahah

Well i love and miss you all!!

Week 65 12-19-16 Centenario

Hey guys this week was really good!!

It's still hot but we are in summer now so it's normal. We had a lot of lessons and found a ton of new people. We put a fecha with a new investigator but she didn't go to church so we are going to have to put another one. With Gabriel Chavez, we couldn't visit at all this week because he found a new job and is working a ton. He is reading and praying which is good so hopefully we can find him this week. We really don't have any other investigators that are progressing but we have a lot of new ones. 

Saturday we went caroling too hahah The kid that hated doing it at home. I made a ton of Chocalate Chip Cookies and we went to like 7 families and gave them cookies and sung. It was actually really fun haha It started to rain a little too.

We have been talking with everyone and giving them little cards for Christmas. You would be surprised of how many people have told me that they don't celebrate Christmas because it doesn't say it in the Bible....hahah Its super weird to me! 

Well i hope everyone has a great Christmas and can remember Jesus Christ and everything that he has done for us! I love and miss you all!!

Week 64 12-12-16 Centenario

Hey guys this week was good!

We had a lot of wind but we still worked hard. We had another lesson with Gabriel and he is doing really good. He didn't come to church this week...but we are working a lot with him! We also found some new investigators. We had contacted a Paraguayo about 2 weeks back and this week we could teach him. Elder Britez is always talking  to him in Guarani which is cool.
We had a Training with President that was for Christmas!! It was really good. We did a couple activities that were really cool and President Casariego gave us a little treat bag haha

We did a service with the Hermanas on Saturday and we painted a small little house. It was super funny. The hermanas was putting water in the paint and we were like you shouldn't put more and she was like no they told me to put the end the paint was super watery and we had to buy more hahah It was a fun service!

Well love and miss you all!! Happy Christmas season! I hope everyone can Light the World!!

Week 63 12-05-16 Centenario

The work is heating up and I'm getting tanner....hahaha

This week was super awesome and hot! We had a ton of lessons and a lot of success. One of the best things that happened was that we talked with Gabriel Chavez who's family are members but he isn't. He is 23 years old and his dad died about 5 months ago. We went and taught him with Sergio Flores and had a super awesome lesson. The spirit was way strong and he accepted a fecha for the 17th. He also came to church this week!! He is a stud.
We got to also teach Irma and she is also progressing a lot. She is super awesome and wants to learn.
For Christmas we are handing out cards and also doing this calendar but President made one for the missionary that is really cool!! It's helped me a lot!
Well i love you all
