This week was a super good experience. We talked with a lot of people and taught few lessons. Trelew is a little different than what I´m used to.
We were able to put several baptism dates on the calendar and we found a girl who met the missionaries like a year ago. They left a book of mormon and then she never saw them again, but she was so interested she read the WHOLE THING! Super sick! We both just stood there like uhhhhh wow ok haha. So we will be teaching her this week! We couldn´t get her to conference but we did get Alan and his little brother Facundo. They are 14 and 9. They just lost their mom and they have a lot of need for the Savior´s healing power in their family.
I really loved Elder Nelson´s talk about the book of mormon. If you couldn´t see it, go back and watch it, and if you haven´t been reading start now! The Book of Mormon has changed my life and I have seen it change so many others. The promised blessings await us if we heed to the counsel of our modern-day Prophets.
¨For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come.
Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.¨ Romans 8:38-39
Moms note : Here are a few details I pulled out of him this week. He still has to go someplace and pay to use a computer but he says the internet is really fast. He said he can't carry his camera on him very often so I am guessing this area is a little bit rougher. They live in a apartment above a member family. He and Elder Ekblad are the Zone leaders so I am guessing they will get to travel some as the area is pretty big. He is in a ward for the first time instead of just a branch. It is so far North that it is warm. Big difference from Rio Grande where it is still snowing some days. The high today was 69 and the low tonight will be 45. Spring has arrived just as we go into Fall. He has a white shirt on that we bought at the Travel store in Bountiful. It is supposed to be mosquito repellent and it has reflector on the collar. Thats why it looks funny in the picture. No explanation on the pictures.
