Just going to give you the run down of the week.
Monday was weird because I had been used to doing nothing for p-day so to play soccer was fun. Also different because I have to type a lot faster but whatever its all good. We have to go to a place that has computers and pay to use them and the internet.
Tuesday was Zone conference and I got a package (from home) that Brother Nate Graham traveled to Argentina with and shipped to me. I also got a bunch of letters so I was stoked! Also apparently one of these weeks we are going to see some penguins, lets see if it happens. It honestly rained all week! Not like chill rain either, like wrath of God rain. Then one day it was nice, then the next rain again, and today its like gale-force winds.
Something really cool this week was teaching Silvana and Lionel. Investigators from a few transfers ago that we haven`t been able to get a hold of until this week! She is like 35ish and the kid is 7. Had a sarpado (sick) lesson with them and they came to church! Boom. Also super fun, I`m just chilling in the chapel about 30 minutes before sacrament meeting and they asked me to talk. "Haha! No problem!" I said hahaha. Totally whipped it out of nowhere, not even sure what I said, but they all told me it was "very profound and powerful" so howabout that eh.
Friday we cooked steak and burned a shirt for my companions one year in the mission.
Another fun fact, teaching this one young dude named Gabriel who is in a wheelchair, and his baby pitbull is biting the crap out of my ankles. Try to testify of something super deep while you have ripped socks and bloody ankles its great.
All good here in Gallegos. Thanks for all the support! I am so beyond grateful for everything I have and I know without a doubt this is the only true Church of our living Savior Jesus Christ.
"And behold, when I see many of my brethren truly penitent, and coming to the Lord their God, then is my soul filled with joy; then do I remember what the Lord has done for me, yea, even that he hath heard my prayer; yea, then do I remember his merciful arm which he extended towards me." Alma 29:10
