Buen dìa todos
This week lots of rain again and lots of fun. Elder Mancia from El Salvador is headed home in 2 weeks so we spent a lot of time with those guys working, serving, and having fun.
Tuesday we found a really cool family while looking for some old people from the Carpeta del area. Had a cool lesson with this old lady and her grandson who is twelve, but when you talk to him you feel like you are talking to a thirty year-old who has 5 college degrees. The gift of tongues had to help me out because I think my vocabulary in Castellano is like 6th grade haha.
On Sunday like half the branch was gone to Buenos Aires to the temple to be there for the sealing of a young couple, so we had a lot of work. Sundays are always a little bit harder to get out and walk, due to all the sleeping I did on Sundays at home haha.
Yesterday was sweet we got to go to Monte Leòn National Park and see penguins. About a two hour drive in a little bus we rented and it was super foggy all day. We had to walk a few miles on the beach which was pretty fun. The penguins live in little bush villages its sweet. They do bite in case you wanted to know if I tried to hold one. Definitely the sickest p-day of the mission so far.
I love being a missionary and I feel so blessed. The knowledge and testimony I have of this Gospel and the confidence I have in my Savior help me so much in every aspect of life here. Every little test we have in life should be taken with patience, charity for others, long-suffering, and the glorious hope of eternal life. Being truly converted to Christ is not about what we do or don`t do, but about who we are and who we want to be.
"Now this was the faith of these of whom I have spoken; they are young, and their minds are firm, and they do put their trust in God continually." Alma 57:27
