COMODORO RIVADAVIA MISSION
We are getting down to business and we got miracles rolling in hot.
So Tuesday was pretty chill and we had a couple good lessons and stuff like that. Evening time we were at a members house and he gave us a reference that sounded good so we took off and we were excited. We got there and it was not a good reference haha. This lady argued with us for like an hour and was getting so mad because she was rejecting all this stuff. So we whipped out the bible and freaking wrecked her with it and she was so mad and still wouldn´t believe anything. Who knows what is gonna happen to her but it´s not gonna be good.
Wednesday it was freaking a tornado. Like the wind was so strong my legs got sore walking like 3 miles against it haha. We had an awesome first lesson with this really nice lady and she is married! Nobody is married here so that is a win. But she is super cool I think we have an appointment this Thursday.
Thursday more crappy weather and lots and lots of walking. We were looking for people for three straight hours and we were straight destroyed. We ended the day with an awesome lesson with this young couple though, and I am hoping they are the miracle we have been waiting for because we have a lesson tonight and they are super pumped.
Saturday and Friday to be honest I have no idea what happened haha. I think we contacted a lot and visited Gimene and Julio who are these young members who freaking love us haha we are always chilling with them.
Sunday we gave talks haha. Super weird giving talks in Spanish. Kind of fun though because there are only like 100 people in the church so pretty chill. I will send some pics of the church next week because it is new and freaking nice.
While we were at church like in the third hour, one of our investigators who is from Brazil her name is Odette, she freaking came to church just to invite us to have lunch with her family haha! It was so sick we were stoked! So we went over and there were a ton of people. They have a way nice house and so I was playing ping pong with everyone and completely destroying hahaha. Then after ping pong one of the relatives of this lady, like her son-in-law or something, started asking us questions. We were talking and just kind of answering questions and somehow got talking about the temple. We mentioned something about baptisms for the dead and this dude went nuts. He started questioning the crap out of us and demanding bible verses to back it up. So we whipped out 1 peter and 1 corinthians and did the usual bible wrecking that we love so much haha. But no he wasn´t convinced ahahahahaha and even better he is a Jehovahs witness!!!! hahahahhahahahahahahahahaha those guys are so freaking nuts ahahahahahaha! They don´t even have the real bible so of course he´s gonna fight with everything we say. But the cool thing was is that Odette freaking defended us and was like testifying even though we have only taught her one lesson haha. It was sick we felt pretty good after.
So ya thats the week. Got my package from the office so gonna be eating good this week. The gospel is restored, the book of mormon is true, our Savior lives and is waiting for us to come unto Him. My testimony is something that will never fail no matter how many crazy Evangelicals or Jehovahs witnesses are against me.
Moms Note: in reference to last weeks letter....they got a new heater or califactor!!! He was super happy for that. I asked about transfers and he said they are usually every 6 weeks but that it is complicated so who knows. They try to keep them in one place for 4 or 5 months. I asked if he will be with Elder T for Christmas and he said "I doubt it unfortunately" Then a sad face. They seem to be getting along really great. He is sleeping in the sleeping bag he took and its working good. He would however like a pillow. He said there is nothing good there. So guess what he is getting for christmas? He would also like ear plugs and pictures to teach with of the first vision and the plan of salvation and in Spanish if any words. A big american flag and lots and lots of candy. He must be having sugar withdrawal. We eat a lot of candy at our house!
