BOCA is still ahead by four and getting very close to the end of this campeonato asì que, estamos muy contentos. If they win their next match they basically win.
We have seen some very cold days here this week. I put on more clothes than I would wear skiing or even hunting some days so you can imagine. I think I have lost all nerves in my ears and I am losing some hair quite possibly.
The work has been slower in terms of people progressing towards baptism. Which is basically the whole work haha but we actually teach a lot of people per week. As things get colder people get a little colder and the whole city moves a lot slower. Not to mention there are a ton of protests due to the lack of payment to basically all departments of provincial government here in Santa Cruz. We have permission to not use proselyting clothes downtown, but I doubt anything would happen. Overall we are enjoying the time we have here and making the most of it.
As a mission we are starting an initiative to fill the Patagonia with the Book of Mormon. I have been studying the Book of Mormon a ton and am excited to put a focus on sharing it. I know without a doubt that it contains the words of Prophets of God and the everlasting Gospel of Jesus Christ, and that reading it will bring us closer to God ¨than by any other book.¨ (Joseph Smith)
Julio blessed the sacrament yesterday he was stoked. Every time we get together with him, he just wants to spend the whole time practicing talking to people about the gospel. It has been super cool to see the changes he has made in his life.
¨Now ye see that this is the true faith of God; yea, ye see that God will support, and keep, and preserve us, so long as we are faithful unto him, and unto our faith, and our religion; and never will the Lord suffer that we shall be destroyed except we should fall into transgression and deny our faith.¨ Alma 44:4
