Well, a good couple days of stuff. I am writing today because we don´t know if we will be writing next week with transfers. My companion is headed to a new area way up in the top of the mission where there aren´t any members, and its super super hot! He has to finish the mission there so he´s not super stoked but hey, thats what happens, and he´s already been almost everywhere in the mission so no problem. A kid from Uraguay is coming up here with me for at least one transfer. He is super funny and crazy like me so I think we will be successful and have fun. I am going to be in Caleta for a few days this week so not super pumped about that but whatever, por lo menos I´ll be with Clark the zone leader he is from Draper and is way chill, we are good friends.
We spent Wednesday in Caleta until about four in the afternoon. Had one cool lesson and commited a lady to baptism so how about that? We traveled to the hotel in Comodoro where we spent the night with a ton of missionaries from the Northern half of the mission. Got to see a lot of my friends from the MTC and met some new people too. Had the conference Thursday which was media baja cañe, but they gave some good messages and a lot of new ideas for the mission. Really cool to see all the languages that come together in the Lord´s work. The area President is Brazilian I think, so his wife was translating her message from Portuguese to English, then President Salerno translated into Castellano. Really crazy. By the way I already know some Portuguese from teaching our Brazilian investigator, so hey thats cool. Got back Thursday night late. Friday worked a good day with lots of contacts and spreading the word about #iluminarelmundo or #lighttheworld that the Church is doing for Christmas. Then we heard transfers last night.
Super grateful for all that I have, know, and feel while here in Argentina. I have so much support from family and friends and I am so blessed. I know without a doubt this is the true Church and that my Savior lives. I know that the Plan of Salvation is real and that if we make the right choices in this life we will live with our families for eternity. I feel so loved and I feel so privileged to be a servant of the Lord. I feel so humbled that the Lord trusts me to do and say what He would do and say if he were here. I want you all to know that He loves you.
keepin´ on in the Patagonian wasteland
