Ituzaingó Week 14! Merry Christmas!

Hola Amigos!
I want to wish you all a Merry Christmas and encourage you all this Christmas season to remember why it is that we celebrate. Remember our Savior Jesus Christ, for after all, that is why it is called Christmas, for Christ. Try to think of one way that you can make room for the Savior in your Christmas celebrations. Take a moment to breathe, to relax, and to feel His love. Last December there was an article in the Ensign that is called something like "Be at Peace" by Elder Chrestofferson. That basically sums up my thoughts because, well, they came from there. Also go read Ether 12:41. I'm not going to put it here because I want you to go look for yourself. As you read it, think of what it means to you in your life to "seek this Jesus". 
I love you all! The gospel's true, God loves you!

Ituzaingó 1B Week 13! Exciting Stuff Happening!

Hola Amigos!
So I didn't write the exciting news last week because I ran out of time. However, here it is now! I'M TRAINING! Last week I received a "refuerza" as we say here, a greenie in English! Her name is Hna Mughal and she is from Millcreek, UT! It has been really fun to be with her and to get to experience all her "firsts" with her! Her first time on a colectivo, her first time teaching a real lesson. Her first P-day. I could go on, but I won't.

Hermana Mughal and Hermana Cheever.
The sad part of the exciting news is that my time with Hna. Poblete came to an end. She is now in Ramos Mejía learning a ton more and progressing a ton more!

This week was full of miracles! In our lesson with Marina on Tuesday, she told us that the lawyer in charge of Eduardo's divorce finally started to work on it. She told us that now it really actually is in the final steps and she is still super excited for it to come through so she can get married and baptized and be living right in the sight of the Lord! She and Emmanuel (her 10 year old son) came to church yesterday for all three hours! Ema was a little shy the second hour so he came to Gospel Principles with Marina and us, but the second hour he went to Primary!

We also found a new investigator whose name is Arsenio. He accepted a baptismal date for the 7th of January! We asked him how he felt after the first vision and he told us that he knew it was true. He said that he was a journalist and worked in radio as well so he know how to analyze people and he said just by seeing how sincere we were in presenting the gospel and that we wanted to help him by answering his questions, he could tell that it was the truth. Now he just needs the spiritual confirmation that comes from a sincere prayer!

Thanks for all the prayers and everything y'all do! Go out and serve!
