Chivilcoy C Week 1!

Hola amigos!
I'm doing very well! My new companion is Hermana Loderup from Austin, TX. She has 6 months in the mission and she's great! I'm super excited to see what this transfer has in store for us! This week we biked. a lot. The hermanas of Chivilcoy A had a baptism on Saturday and Juan (the man that was baptized) is so great! He was so prepared! The Lord is doing great things here! 

We have a few investigators that I've heard are really great. I haven't met a whole lot seeing as how I've only been here for a week and Sunday after church we had to travel to the offices and got back yesterday at 9 pm. 

Yesterday! I had the opportunity to be in a meeting of leaders of the 4 Buenos Aires missions and also the MTC missionaries with Elder Stevenson! It was so great! We all got to go shake his hand and his wife's and also the area presidency and their wives. It was amazing to be in the presence of an apostle of the Lord! I know that the Lord knows and loves each one of His children and that today He speaks to us through living prophets and apostles! One thing that Elder Stevenson said that I just loved was "One of the beautiful parts of missionary work is to have a companion and find unity in your companionship." It is so true! Unity brings miracles! 

Anyway, gotta go! Love you all!

Ituzaingó 1B Week 18!

Hola amigos!
I'm doing great! I'm super excited today because well, tomorrow's transfers and I'm going back to the countryside as a Sister Training Leader! I am so excited. I know that every companion, every STL and every experience I have had on my mission will help me in this and I just hope that I can serve the Lord and the hermanas in the zone of Chivilcoy with all I've got to give.

Anyway, as far as Ituzaingó goes, we've got a baptism next week! Daniel is going to be baptized! Also yesterday, Marina and Emmanuel came to church. They really love church and that makes me really happy! 

I hope you're all well! Sorry it's short, I don't have much time!

Ituzaingó 1 Week 17! Lots of Walking!

Hola todos!
How is everyone? I'm doing great! You wanna know something? On divisions on Friday Hermana Wheatley and I walked 7.4 miles. And we walked less than Hna Mughal and I usually walk in a day!

As far as our area goes, well, it's hanging in there pretty well. We have Daniel who has a fecha for the 21st and he is super excited for that. We are planning to see if we can have his interview this weekend!

Then there's Liliana with her fecha for the 28th. We've basically already taught her everything but I think 3 points of lesson 5, but we can start reading in the Book of Mormon with her or something to keep building her faith until her baptism!

Marina's fecha fell!

We also found a new investigator this week named María. Well, in reality I found her with Hna Gioppo in divisions last transfer, but then we couldn't find her again! It just turns out that there were a bunch of things that had happened in the family and now we found her again and we've started teaching her! She has a fecha for the 4th of February.

Ituzaingó 1 Week 16! One year down!

Hola amigos!
That's right, I've got one whole year in the mission!

I'm doing really well this week! Remember Daniel, that man I talked about like a month or so ago that's a Messianic Jew? Yeah, well we finally had contact with him again and he's getting baptized on the 21st of January! 

Also we finally found a former investigator that lives super far away that Hna Poblete and I had searched for a few times with no luck! Aaaaand he accepted a baptism date for the 28th! He's actually great! He's 20 years old and the missionaries first taught him when he was 16 so he's had contact with missionaries for about 4 years. He's super sincere and really wants to be baptized and knows what we teach him is true. 

We saw a few other miracles this week too thanks to the heat that makes me sweat buckets on my face. People take pity on us. On Saturday it was really hot (like the thermal sensation was 42 degrees Celsius. That's like 110. With humidity.) and we knocked on this door and a man came out and saw us and just said something like "hey do you want to come in for a few minutes and sit down and drink a glass of cold water? My wife and were just in the back swimming, come on back and meet her and you can take a little break!" So yeah, we taught the Restoration to him and his wife and now we have an appointment for this Saturday too! Miracles do happen!

Anyway, I hope you're all doing super great! The gospel's true and God loves you!
