hola buen dia todos
This week was a lot of things. From fun and exciting, to depressing and really tiresome. Through it all, my testimony and my hope for things to come help me a lot. There is always something good tomorrow, next week, next month, and at the end of the mission that I have to look forward too, and I am super grateful for all the little blessings I receive everyday that remind me why I am here and what I am fighting for.
One thing that was really awesome this week was that we got to help with a baptism. The kid is 14 and he is super funny. Really a great example to everyone because he spent a year going to different churches and he finally made the choice to become a member of the ONLY true one! Nobody in his family is a member and he walks like 3 miles every Sunday to church. We got to help with the baptism, I gave a talk and my companion baptized and confirmed this kid. Super fun day and we got to mess around with filling up the baptism font which was fun.
Another thing that was cool was that I went to Caleta Olivia on Wednesday because my companion had to go to Comodoro for a meeting. So I spent the day with Elder Caceres from Chaco. He is a neat person and has a lot of love for the people. He is super poor and he really cares a lot about the people. We taught a few lessons, one of which was in a house made out of aluminum that was about half the size of my bedroom. I spent the lesson sitting on the dirt floor as we taught the Restoration to this older guy. We also helped this lady paint her ceiling, luckily I didn´t get any paint on my tie because it was one of my way sick ones haha. But we had a good day.
Yesterday we had a super good Sunday because the second counselor of the mission came and gave some really cool talks and chilled with us for a bit. He is a super nice guy. Then we knocked doors all afternoon and found a few new people to teach.
Our Savior lives and knows each of us perfectly and loves us immensely. I hope we can all live in a way that shows Him how grateful we are for what he did for us.
