week was pretty crazy!! I had to go to Neuquen for 3 day to renew my ID
becasue I'm illegal right now....living 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!!
Pizza Libre with Elder Meteer from Califonia, Elder Argyle and Elder Frassetto
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 .
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.
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
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 rain......it sucks
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
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!!
I got transferred to San Martin de los Andes but I'm going to have to
write another day but it's all good. I also got moved up to Zone Leader
so right now I'm in Neuquen for a meeting with Elder Maynes! Love you
I don't have a
ton of time but this last week was crazy. We had the baptism of Fabian
and it was all ready for Saturday at 6. We went on Saturday at 3:30 and
he said that he talked with his brother at last and his bother said that NO he couldn't do it.........so yeah no baptism.
We then had
transfers and I got transferred to San Martin de los Andes as Zone
Leader. I'm pretty psyched. It was my dream transfer hahah I'm with Elder
Newman who is from my group. Well I love you guys!!!
