Buen dìa from Rìo Gallegos
Super weird saying goodbye to everyone in Pico, lots of really good friends, it legit felt like my house. Luckily we got Monday to hangout and get more stuff done. I left Caleta for Gallegos at 9 pm on Monday and got here about 7ish in the morning on Tuesday. Saw a couple of sweet movies so that was sick.
It rained almost all week and was super cold so that was different than the last 3 months haha. Someone is looking out for me because I got another stud comp and he is from Rosario so still speaking Castellano like I was born here. The area is a little bit nicer than where I have been until now. More money and not as much dirt. There is actually some grass so thats sweet.
This week even though it was way cold and rained a ton, we found some really cool people to teach. It was Carnaval the first of the week so there was lots of people dressed up and I took a pic with this one guy. On Wednesday I think were trying to find a guy to teach that my companion already knows, and next door there was this huge truck and these two young guys unloading a bunch of stuff. We helped them and they almost dropped a fridge on me and killed me haha. Just helped them unload some stuff really quick and then left. The other day we passed by and turns out this kid, Andres, used to play basketball with the missionaries in Esquel when he was a kid. Got to talking with him and the next day we helped him fix a wall since they just moved in and got to teach him a little. He is interested and we are hoping to be able to teach his wife and two little kids too and get them to church. They are married so thats like more miraculous than sliced bread che.
Friday we didn`t get to go play soccer with everyone because we had a meeting with the branch but whatever its all good. The thing about Gallegos is its bigger than what I am used to
so there is actually stuff to do, haha weird.
Transfers kind of suck sometimes, its a lot of work, but there are always reasons. One reason is the children of God that are waiting for us to find them and bring the light of the gospel into their lives. I am super excited to find them and let them know that their Savior lives and loves them. I hope you all know that too.
"And thus we see the great call of diligence of man to labor in the vineyards of the Lord; and thus we see the great reason of sorrow, and also of rejoicing, sorrow because of death and destruction among men, and joy because of the light of Christ unto life." Alma 28:14
"Therefore, O my son, whosoever will come may come and partake of the waters of life freely; and whosoever will not come the same is not compelled to come, but in the last day it shall be restored unto him according to his deeds." Alma 42:27
