Bien ahí loco
In Trelew it has been a nice week for working. Lots of sun but pretty nice temperatures. I have a nasty tan line on my head from my sunglasses and on my neck from my collar. Every day some punk dog that thinks he´s way sick, tries to rip out my hamstring from behind, and my rock throwing is on point.
Leo, who has been inactive since he was baptized at ten, has been coming to church for a month now!! We had stake conference the other day it went well. Leo and Carla have been together for a long time and have 2 children. We have been teaching them a ton and its literally the best time. He´s 20 and she´s 19 so we just hangout and literally they have like taught themselves. They are reading the book of mormon every day together and seperate and basically know it better than us haha. This week they are going to get an appointment to be married in November!!! Then Leo is going to be ordained a Priest and he´ll baptize his wife!! They have big plans for the temple and everything and it literally is the coolest thing to be apart of what they are going through.
This week also we were able to find and teach a catholic family that were pretty interested. They said they just needed to talk about God, that it was lacking in their life. Estefaní and Gonzalo wanted to see how close what we believe as members of the Church is to catholicism. Haha we started that one easy. What really was cool was to testify and feel the Holy Spirit super strong and to see in their eyes that they also felt that presence. I am so grateful to have the authority to testify and promise blessings that comes from my calling, and to have the power that comes from keeping my sacred covenants. I know without a doubt that the power of our Savior´s sacrifice is something available to us every day of our lives, and repentance is a daily process for me. I love the Lord and his trust in me is my most valuable possesion.
¨For he is the same yesterday, today, and forever; and the way is prepared for all men from the foundation of the world, if it so be that they repent and come unto him.¨ 1 Nephi 10:18
