Bueno, y así ya fue una semana más
This week was pretty sick the family that the missionaries have been teaching for like a month are getting married on the 27th and baptized on the 29th. It is something way special to see a whole family change little things in each person and like as a whole. They are from Córdoba and are super humble and way fun to teach. I always learn tons of new stuff through the spirit teaching new people.
There´s also this 19 year old kid we are teaching that I am pretty sure will get baptized that day too, but hopefully this Saturday.
The best part of the week was that last night Milton and Noelia called me from Pico Truncado my first area and we talked for a bit. They are getting married the 28th and baptized the 29th too!!! So freaking cool I was like legit about to cry just listening to how happy they are and how much they have changed! I barely had like a month in the mission last October and we were knocking doors with my trainer Elder Torres. I remember wanting to head back and eat some lunch and we just decided to finish the block. Literally the last house we knocked, turned into our first lesson with them that night. I have never seen a greater example of the love of our Savior and the miracle of the Atonement like I have with them. Super happy for them like wow. I´ll send pictures when I get them.
Another cool thing that happened is we taught this girl who was friends with the missionaries for forever, and her boyfriend was there that is atheist. So we start teaching, and the Spirit is just cranking like way strong. I´m talking and those two and another girl that was there are just like looking at me with the look of like the Spirit just potent like 100% pero super fuerte. Then at the end after we have invited them to read the book of mormon and everything, the kids like, ¨I don´t believe in this stuff, but I am going to read this and I will give you one chance¨ it was totally sick like the Spirit totally did everything there.
I am super grateful for everyone and everything in my life. I feel way blessed and loved and I hope you all know you are sons and daughters of God. I´ve got a year left from today so going to make sure I do my absolute best to be the Lord´s instrument here in Argentina. Thanks for all the support and prayers.
