Another One / Happy HALLOWEEN

Well, this week was a little hard for the fact that our Ward isn't so supportive for the work that is going on, but its ok. I know that all will be well and we just gotta keep supporting the preisthood and help them and do our part, and the Lord will add His part

We are so happy for our investigator Diego. Man, this man is Superman!! He is enduring to the very end! Since he didn't get baptized this weekend we have to keep daily contact with him, and its not a problem. We are so proud of him and all he's overcome. He's a man of incredible unbreakable faith! He is a huge example of faith and we are so happy for him! 

We will be having his baptizim this week. WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR DIEGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

P.S.  Nobody does anything here for Halloween haha, so no candy for me haha, kidding. Have a safe Halloween Everyone!!

There is always something we can do better! NEW PACKAGE INFO. ***PLEASE READ***

Well, I'll say the good stuff frist! We have 4 investigators progressing! 4 that went to church this Sunday and 2 that are getting baptized this November! We are so excited and so confident about these investigators. They are so ready to make promises with their Heavenly Father! We are so happy and proud of all that they have given and keep giving to keep on going! 

Now its not bad things that happened, just not experiences that one doesn't want to have so often but they happen for a reason. Well, I had a couple of gloomy days spiritually. And well, I kinda lost my way a little but, something that I've always known, but we forget sometimes, is that all the things we go through, good and bad in this life, are to help us progress. 2 Nefi 2:11-14

I'm so greatful that we have trials and hardships not because they are easy or because I want them, but because they help us progress, they help us learn and grow, and that is why we are here on this Earth, to learn, to grow, and to have faith in our Savior Jesus Christ, and do what He has shown us to do. I know that if we can remember this always and TRUST A LOT MORE IN HIM! We will be ok! We will be Happy, and we will have more joy in our lives that I know and promise!

I LOVE MY MINI COMPANION SHES SO GREAT!!!

Queridos Misioneros,

Les escribo para avisarles de un cambio en la manera de retirar los paquetes del correo argentino. A causa de ese cambio, no podemos retirarlos actualmente. Estamos trabajando para que podamos hacerlo lo más antes posible. Por favor, díganles a sus padres y seres queridos que no les manden paquetes hasta que tengamos una solución.

Dear Missionaries,

There has been a change in the mailing system here in Argentina that makes it so we can’t receive packages at this moment. We are working on finding a solution to the problem as soon as possible. Please tell your parents and loved ones to not send you packages until we have a solution. (Or you can just forward this message so you don’t have to explain anything.)

Have a great day!

Just when you feel like you can't go anymore, He's always right there!

So this is a long story but, I'll try to make it super short and give it all the meaning it was for me!

 Well, as you know our week wasn't so great last week. But just when I thought that I couldn't go any more, God is always there to pick me up and dust me off and let me know that He's always there!

So this is what happened. We ended the week bad, not a lot of lessons and progressing investigators, we had no money to buy our groceries for the week, we didn't finish our studies, we didn't eat until like 6 PM, we lost the cellphone that I have to pay 400 pesos for haha, and we had forgotten the keys to our apartment at the chapel, and barely had enough money to pay for our taxi to go look for the keys, and we had to start working at 6:30 and all this occurred at 6:15, and we were still in p-day clothes!

I felt so much pressure, responsibility that slipped through my hands, and like a failure...... BUT little did we know that God was there the whole time and He was just trying to help me see what I can do better and how to do it. 

When we got to the chapel to find the keys, we found a man that had attended General Conference and was hooked! He had a really rough past and was just trying to look for God, and he knew that this was where he was going to find Him. When we saw him, we immediately did not care if we were in p-day clothes. We greeted him so happily and taught him right then and there. I cannot express how  strong the spirit was in the whole lesson! That lesson was just full of light and truth, and he felt that it was all that he needed to be a better father and keep pressing forward with his children. We invited him to be baptized on the 29th of this month and he accepted so humbly and I couldn't stop crying after that lesson knowing that if I could have just had a little more faith, a little more patience, and a lot more humility, everything would work out just fine. I testify that the Lord really does love and knows us, each and every single one of us. He knows personally and He knows where and what is our limit. Never lose faith in what He can do for us and in His tender mercies, they are always present. Since then, we haven't stopped trying to do better, and we are striving to work as hard as we can to be better instruments in the Lord's hands. I know He lives and I know He loves us too. I testify this in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

 BY THE WAY HAPPY MOTHERS DAY FROM ARGENTINA!!!! (they are the only country that celebrates it in October haha) Love you all and have a marvelous WEEK!!!!

Trials, come on in!

Well, this week was ROUGH!

But I'm on the mission haha, its going to happen. I received a new companion last week and she's a mini from Tucuman, so that means she's just a young lady from a ward that so bravely volunteered to come to the mission and be my companion for 6 weeks. I have no idea how to even express how hard it is right now. And I wont try to express it either because it doesn't matter. All I do know is that this happened for a reason and I know that my Heavenly Father has something for me to learn, something that I need to change. Our week was rough too, not a lot of lessons and not a lot of new investigators but Whoopee for a new week!! 

I Hope you guys enjoy these last months!! These are my  favorite months of the Year!!! 

Nothing better then LA MISION ARGENTINA SALTA!!
