COMODORO RIVADAVIA MISSION
COMODORO RIVADAVIA MISSION
If you guys ever get bored just go on google maps and look up Pico Truncado Santa Cruz Argentina and check out my pueblo. Pretty gross little city in the middle of nothing but hey might be fun to check it out.
So this week was like one good day, one bad day, all week.
Monday was a good pday like real good.
Tuesday was a long day like really really long. We walked and walked and walked and walked. Never had shin splints before but getting straight up wrecked in church shoes. I think we might of had like one or two good contacts nada mas. So ya a bit depressing, oh and also our califactor, which is just like a space heater that everyone uses here, well it broke so our house is freaking cold in the morning like an icebox .
Wednesday was a good day. We were freaking in high gear for some reason and we had 33 contacts which is like insane hahahaha. Found some really neat people. Found this lady from Brazil who doesn´t know a whole lot of Spanish but my companion can understand like 70% of what she says and I get like 10% . We set up an appointment with her for Friday I will talk about that later. But ya was a good day.
Thursday was another long day if I remember right. The bummer Thursday was that we had an appointment that was like the most important appointment of the whole week and we confirmed it like 3 times and it canceled. Ah it was terrible. We were so bummed out.
Friday was the zone conference in Caleta so we had to be up early to get the bus. Was a chill time in Caleta and I got a letter from Makayla so that was freaking awesome. Also had the office send us a BOM in portuguese for this Brazilian lady. We had an appointment with her at 5 but we couldn´t get a bus ticket until 4:30 cuz nobody bought the tickets I was so mad holy. We ended up getting to her house at 5:45 and she was like what the heck, but she is super nice so it was all good. But I knew she would be ready at 5 cuz she isn´t from Argentina haha. The Argentines don´t know how to keep commitments if their lives depended on it. So anyway we got there and she had some relatives over so that was sick. Three older ladies and they all wanted to talk to us. Of course they were all obsessed with my hair like the rest of this country so they all wanted a picture with me haha. But we really had an awesome lesson with them. Really was the highlight of this week.
Saturday was chill and long and not much happened. Had a lesson in the morning which is rare with this Evangelical guy who won´t shut up for five seconds and let us teach something haha. So who knows, but we had a good lesson and put a baptism date so we will see.
Sunday was long too and we spent like 3 hours in the evening listening to members complain about other members and how the district counselor is a smoker and all this crap haha. So I was so tired last night haha. But Clara came to church so thats good. She is gonna be baptized on November 12th she's so funny she is from Chile and she's way old and forgets everything .
Just going strong down here. The weather is gross, really windy and cold. Fasted yesterday and today. My testimony has never been stronger and I can´t wait for people who really want to hear the gospel. I feel so blessed with everything in my life and I know the Lord loves us so much. This is the only way to Eternal Life and I am determined to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to hear about it.
Note about photos:
Letter from Makayla! The mail works as long as you send it to the mission home and its just a letter.
I asked about the tie because I do not recognize it. He said his comp made it and that he is a wizard! He is into fashion so I can see him and Jake hitting it off.
He has sent a lot of photos of sunsets. It is slow to send photos so he only sent a few this week.
I asked about what to send for Christmas. He says:
Christmas candy of course! Load that baby up with carmels and mints and penoches and the wrapped carmels! Also hot chocolate and whatever else you can think of haha.
