I don`t have a lot to tell this week.
As far as the work goes my companion was still in a lot of pain so we took it easy. Super fun kid and we had some good times but I am really excited to get back to work! I am in Caleta right now and my new companion will get here tomorrow. He is from here I think Mar de Plata but I`m not sure. Oh by the way I am staying another transfer. Yep that`s 6 months in my first area. I guess in other missions that is not that big of a deal but here its a lot! The mission is big so there is always a lot of movement! As you already know my little town isn`t very exciting, but I am staying positive and the truth is I am really comfortable there! Julio, a member that I know really well, he`s like my older brother he`s so freaking funny and we chill all the time. And then Milton, Noelia, and Frida are progressing a ton and so hopefully we`ll see some miracles there in the next 6 weeks.
Gave a talk on Sunday. Super fun giving a talk in a different language because it eliminates a lot of the fear of like giving a regular talk. I feel like you can say a lot more stuff because you aren`t so stressed out. I talked about the atonement and it was super cool.
Just want to say that I know that the mission really is the Lord`s work. That He really knows us and is looking out for me down here every minute of every day. I have learned a lot of things from the mission already, but one of the most important is something I have felt ever since I got to the MTC. That is the love our Father in Heaven really has for us. I cannot explain it and I am a way more positive and caring person now because of it. Super grateful for everything and everyone and want you all to know I am happy, healthy, and safe.
