2 Nephi 31:20

Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life.

Feliz Dia De Padre y Dia de Bandera!
Hola everyone, your favorite missionary here! Woo hoo! Haha.
This week has been great. First off, it feels like it is summer here, but the first day of winter is tomorrow. My companion and I studied outside the other day to soak in all the sun but it definitely is getting colder. Missionary is progressing so much in Claypole. 

This week we have 3 new investigators. Claudio, he is such a great guy and has so much faith. His cousin passed away and he wants to feel like a family and have God in his life, but his girlfriend doesn’t want a family so we offered to help him with his girlfriend because he is so strong and has such a strong testimony. Then there is, Sandra, she is a reference of Melaney, my first baptism in the mission. Sandra is the aunt of Melanay and another investigator, Mayra. Mayra and Melaney are sisters but have different dads. And this week Sandra, their aunt is having a lot of trials right now so, Mayra called us and referred us to her. She is so great and just wants to feel peace in her life. I invited her to baptism and it was the greatest experience with this. When I was teaching the lesson I had an overwhelming feeling to ask her to be baptized, I pushed it off and kept talking and then again I had a strong feeling to ask her to be baptized. And once I did, she said yes, and the spirit was so strong. Experiences like this strengthen my testimony so much in the Holy Ghost. And the last investigator is the mom of Mayra and Melaney. The whole family is interested in the gospel and it is so beautiful because I know that familys are eternal. 

Funny experience this week, I called a member this week for us to have lunch in her house because we didn’t have lunch one day and so instead of asking, can we, I said we want to have lunch with you this week and she thought we were having her our pension to eat with us! So funny. 

Claypole is awesome and Argentina is so beautiful! I love the people here and the opportunity to teach these people. The church is true and the book is blue. Love you all. Choy!

Lights out!

3 Meses!

I can’t believe how fast time has gone but yes, it’s true. I’ve been living in Argentina 3 months now and it’s insane because it feels like 1 month only. I love the people of Claypole and missionaries actually call "Claypole-The Golden Area" because so many people are ready to hear the gospel and there are many investigators.

This week was so interesting and different. Each week in the mission always has something different happening. On Tuesday, my zone visited the temple with Presidente because were receiving a new president the 28th of this month. Presidente Thurgood and his wife are so awesome and I am so thankful for their service. I love to see the temple and enter into the House of The Lord to remember the covenants I made with my Heavenly Father. It’s such an amazing blessing we have temples on the earth. Me encanta El Templo!

Intercambiars un otro ves! But this time we weren’t that productive in our day because of one reason. Our key broke and we couldn’t enter into our apartment. It’s so crazy! And so we waited in the pension for like 3-4 hours to get the door fixed and we don’t have a functioning toilet, tambien. Haha. Entonces, the pensioneros fixed our toilet also. It was so funny though because for intercambiars, I guess there is always another problem with the other sisters pension, when this sister, capacitadora has intercambiars. It’s really funny.

Black Out in Claypole...So my companion were walking to our next appointment at 6 and at 6:30 here there is no light, the sun is down and people are getting ready for bed. And so we were walking on a street with not much light, and the lights shut off. We had no light at all in the streets and so immediately my companion and I were super close. Holding each other. Haha. We walked to our Relief Society Presidents home and there she had all candles lit, matte, postres and phase 10. Our night turned into a FHE. It was so fun, even though we did not have any light, we are blessed with awesome members in our ward to protect us. 

I guess having no light in winter is common here because everyone has estufas, which is heaters but estufas use so much energy and so for this. SO much energy being used, the energy just shuts off. Three days in this week, not having light. Woo Woo! These are the experiences that keep the mission interesting and fun.

I hope you guys are enjoying summer and staying warm. The 21st of June is the first day of winter and it’s already Muy Frio en Claypole!

I love you guys so much and Have a great week. Choy!

P.S. Below are pictures of The temple at 7 in the morning of my companion and I walking right next to the freeway.
The pensioneros fixing our door! So funny. Lol.

And my 3 months! Whoop whoop! Mi companera compra facturas para mi. <3

Spanish vs English

It’s Freezing!

I finally I am feeling like an Argentine. Yay! So when I speak in English now, because my companion wants to learn English and I teach English, my brain hurts so bad and usually words that come out are in Spanish. It’s a good thing, but crazy I am at this point already. I love Spanish! A funny story with this, I was helping a investigators son pray and so I was speaking in Spanish, but spoke English out loud, so it went something like this, Haha. Thinking "Tener Fe"but said "To have faith". And then this poor 8 year old was so confused and didn’t want to finish the prayer. Haha. This is a problem. Also, another problem, I don’t sleep at night because my brain thinks so hard in Spanish in my dreams that it never fully rests and so what I have to do to actually fall asleep is sing a song or read the scriptures in English. It’s wonderful. :) 

This week my ward visited the temple and it is so beautiful. We weren’t able to enter because we had one of our investigators entire family there and another investigator. In the temple, like the waiting room, the temple provides a television for us missionaries and so in the temple we teach our investigators about eternal families. It is such a beautiful blessing we have. I know that families are eternal and being able to share my testimony and teach Gods children about this amazing blessing and so awesome.

I’m pretty sure I ate a whole container, package of cream cheese in one sitting! Haha. A traditional dessert here is called "Arope de Chanar" and "Vigilante con queso y dulce", and what it basically is, is about an inch thick of dehydrated fruit, usually strawberries on top of about a half an inch thick of cream cheese. The texture is...different but it’s really good and rich because on top they drizzle this really rich chocolate syrup. It’s really expensive here to eat, so i got lucky. 
I love being a missionary and bringing Gods children unto Christ. Claypole is the best!
Love you all! Choy!

Follow promptings

Hola Familia Y Amigos! Traslados!

This week has been great and very different. It has been raining all week long and we were not having much success finding people. But we went proselyting in an area where we don’t have many investigators and had a feeling that we should talk to this man that I saw in the distance. So as he passed by, I offered to give him a tarjeta. It ended up being that this mans both parents passed away 3 years ago and feels so alone and he just started bawling. We shared the Plan of Salvation with him. He doesn’t have that much money, and needs some help, but I know that the Lord will bless him with his faith and that the Holy Ghost guided me toward him and wanted me to speak with this man, in this specific moment. That just shows that in times when we feel that we should do something, just do it because the Holy Ghost speaks to us in many different ways, to help all God’s children. 

Two Baptisms this week and they were both so beautiful. Maxi and Alexis are so great and have such strong faith. My companion and I sang "Mas Cerca Dios de ti" while, one of the elders played the violin and the spirit was so strong. Even better we had one of our investigators attend and she is so ready for baptism and wants it so bad. Also, Maxi´s sister and mom want to have lessons with us also. The gospel is true and the book is blue. It’s crazy. The best way to spread the gospel is through less actives and new members. 

To make my week entertaining, we bought a chocolate covered egg with a my little pony inside. Haha. This day was just going to be no good because it was pouring rain, no people were in the streets, I fell 3 times because I’m so clumsy, Lol. And my companions shoe broke. Haha. Now that’s an awesome day. 
I got a new companion! Hermana Hernandez, from Guatemala. She is so sweet and I love her so much already. Are personalities are so similar and we teach pretty much the same. We’re a perfect pair. (:

Well I love you guys and thank you so much for everything! Write me!
