Ok so I´m pretty much on cloud nine right now. Why? Because this was
pretty much the best weekend ever. Why? Because yesterday we saw a
flipping miracle as the entire chapel was literally filled to
overflowing. We had so many people that E´ Lobato and I had to stand
in the doorway the entire meeting. It doesn´t stop there! The reason
we had so many people this week is because we had tons of the active
members reach out and invite/drive several inactives to church this
week. The best part? Most of the people that came have non-members in
their family which means we found several new investigators and this
week is pretty much already booked with appointments. Ah. The Church
is true, God answers prayers, and although missionaries can do some
great things, with the help of members we can perform miracles.
So how is everyone back home? Is time flying by for everyone else back
North? Because I opened my agenda this morning and the cold hard truth
that we´re in the last week of the transfer came in like a wrecking
ball. Since when have I already had 20 weeks in my mission.
Seriously, you know what they say about time when you´re having fun.
The really not so fun part of this is that not only am I stuck in
suspense all week because CONFERENCE IS NEXT WEEK (small dance party
in Las Heras to celebrate. Oh wait. I´m not supposed to dance.
Bother.) but it´s also extremely likely that E´ Lobato will be
transferred next week. Oi vey. This is not cool. Well by the next time
I´m emailing a whole lot of crazy things could happen.
Well in other somewhat exciting news, as with every fifth week, we had
companion exchanges. This week I ended up staying in Pico Truncado for
two days with E´ Perez from Buenos Aires. It was pretty intense. Out
of all the things that happened my favorite was randomly running into
Marco. He was an investigator about a year ago but stopped visiting
with the missionaries, but apparently for the past month or so he´s
been thinking about what he heard and learned from the Elders. While
E´ Perez and I were walking down the street, he parked his car, and
called us over and asked us to go by his house this weekend. If I´ve
learned anything the past three months or so in the field is that God
has a plan for everyone to have the chance to hear the gospel.
Sometimes people aren´t quite ready to have that change of heart the
first time around with the missionaries, but when they´re ready our
Heavenly Father somehow just puts us right where we need to be to find
Well I´m running out of time, so with the best news I´ve heard all
week I´d like to say that it is quite possible that Christian and Ana
might be able to get married in two weeks. I´m trying to not explode
of excitement over this, and I´m pretty sure the day they do will be
an Early Christmas. Oh happy day. 🙂
Well times up this week. I hope everyone´s enjoying life as much as I
am. I love my mission more than words on a screen can tell. I hope
everyone has a great General Conference weekend, and that all of you
are safe and well. Until next week!
Love and all the other fun and happy stuff,
