A good produce is always on the horizon
This week was very tranquilo.
My trainer left for the North on Monday, and Elder Clark and I basically didn´t sleep at all in Caleta because we were waiting til like 1 am for his companion, and then my companion arrived at like 5 am haha.
My new companion is super chill and funny, Elder Hernandez from Uruguay. He has 18 months. We will probably just have 6 weeks together and then I will get transferred! Pray that I go somewhere with more green, and where they won´t jump me and take my backpack. I am in love with my backpack. Also he has bad knees so he can only walk for like 2 hours a day. Big change and a lot less tiring than 6 or 7!
We are trying to find some new people to teach. The people we have are really really cool and I want so bad for them to progress, but they just aren´t putting in their part! We are going to keep doing our best to help them but this week our focus is finding the people who are prepared and ready!
BTW Boca beat River yesterday 4-2 so heck ya!!!! Soy de Boca ⚽
The weather has changed a little and it hasn´t been so hot. Lots of rain yesterday and today which I really prefer over the heat.
A cool experience this week was helping an inactive member who we have been talking to a little bit. He called us and asked to meet with us a few days ago. We met with him and he told us a ton of stuff that has happened and how he wants to come back to church and change his life and he wants us to teach his family! Super cool. We were able to help him a lot I think and yesterday he came to church with his little sister. We visited their house and it was so sad! All the kids are so skinny and the parents are just having a lot of struggles. I hope that they will allow the Savior to come into their lives and help them!
The power of the Atonement is infinite and all-encompassing, all He asks of us is that we have faith and reach out to him! Pray every day, read the scriptures, go to church and take the sacrament. The basic beautiful things about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know these things are true and thats why I am here. It makes it all worth it.
Just doing what we can and trusting in the Lord for everything
