BUSY BUSY BUSY (Feb. 20th, 2018)

Well this week was a week awesome! Micaela y Nacho got confirmed this Sunday and wow was it crazy getting them to church! we got to there house to walk with them and no one answers the door.... we sat there knocking for seriously over 15 mins, pounding on the door so loud the whole time! We almost left but decided to stay 1 min longer and finally Bruno, their older brother came to the door! So we got into the house and got the whole family to church! I even had to pick Nacho up out of bed and carry him outside and put on his shoes to wake him up hahaha! But in the end it was great and the whole fam came to church! 

Seriously we have been so busy every single day its been crazy! The days fly by becuase every second of every day we have something to do or someone to teach! I love it so muich! As Zone Leaders, we are able to teach divisions with each elder in our zone every month! So 5 times a month we bring other elders to our area and the 4 of us work in our area! Its basically used to show all the missionarys in the mission the vision of President and how we should be working as missionarys! I have loved doing it becuase we are able to find even more people to teach and we can learn from other missionarys and help them out in their mission! Our zone has a lot of missionarys with the same amount of time in the mission as me but we still have a lot to learn from each other!

I love the mission so much and am so happy to be where I am right now! The mission has changed my life a ton and has made me so much happier! Love you all so much and hope you all have a great week! Keep praying for the people in Argentina to recieve this gospel!

Elder Christofersen!!!!

This week was a great week! I am learning to love my area more and more every day! The people here really are super humble and willing to learn even tho it is a barrio a little better off! 

So this week Elder Christofersen came to the MAC this saturday! And wow I can testify that he is an Apostle Called by the Lord to testify of him! Something that i loved that he taught was the importance we have has members of this church to help people be re born through the waters of Baptism in the eternal plan that our Heavenly Father created! Everyone to be able to get back to God must be baptized and purified by the Holy Ghost first. And it is only through the mercy of Jesus Christ that this is possible! This is so important that he has sent around 70,000 kids around the world to teach this doctrine and help his other children have the change to be baptized. But this is not only the job of the missionary but of all of us that are members of the church. We should be sharing the message with all of our friends and family becasue we know how important this message really is! He explained is way better but it would take a 2 page essay just to explain it like he did so this is the smaller version hahaha! 

So we didnt have a baptism this week but we are planning on having a few this Sunday! So if you can all pray for Laura, Dulce, Pablo and Patricio that would be awesome! Also if you can say a quick prayer for Micaela and Nacho who were baptized the last week to help them out it would be really apreciated! Love you all!! Sorry i dont have much time this week! But hope everything is well!

BACK TO THE WORK: WEEK 1

Back to the work! So first week out of the office and wow did we work hard! Elder Bunker and I work super well together already! I love it! I got to the new area and we started working instantly! They were already working with a few families who we still pass by and we also found a ton of new people to start teaching! So lets start with Jorge!  Jorge is such an awesome guy! Hes 53 and was baptized this Sunday with Bunker and I! It was so cool! His conversion was super sweet! In 6 weeks he went from smoking 40 cigarettes a day to none! And wow hes so strong in the gospel! He was finally able to be baptized this Sunday after a few short weeks! :) 

We also taught 2 kids Mikaela and her little brother Nacho o Ignacio! Mikaela is 17 and her brother is 9! They are super awesome and also were baptized this Sunday! Bunker and I passed by them everyday this week preparing them for their baptism! And they loved it for sure! We are also teaching their older brother Bruno who wanted to be baptized this upcoming sunday but just 5 minutes before the Sacrament meeting, had to leave to help a friend with something... so now we will have 1 week more to prepare him! Hes 18 years old and really is an awesome guy! We are also teaching their parents who are super nice and like listening to our message!

So we are also teaching a few more families! 2 of the families are from Columbia! They are so awesome! How we met them is actually quite funny, so monday, Vaz and I went to take my bags to my new area from the mission home! When we got there our phone died and the missionarys weren't home. So we decided to be missionarys and knock doors and ask someone to let us charge our phone! The family that let us in was this Columbian Family! And then a few days later Bunker and I just passed by contact them again and we began teaching them! They are super aweome! this sunday 2 of the daughters of one of the families came to church, Laura and Dulce! Super awesome!

So we had an amazing first week together there in San Vicente! I am really excited to keep working here and help out our whole, Zona Este! The whole zone is working so hard! It so awesome! :)

One of the best and one of the hardest weeks

Well this was the best week ever for many reasons and the hardest week ever more many reasons! So lets start out from the beginning! So this week we worked so hard to prepare the 4 people for their baptism! Bruno, Gilda, Flavia, and Enzo! And wow, Sunday was an amazing day! 4 more baptisms to finish the transfer! Seriously we were so blessed this transfer! We always had people to teach and many people wanted to be baptized! it was great! The baptisms were all great! Tons of ´people were there to support them!   

So this week was one of the hardest because I am leaving the office!  I have been transferred to a new area called San Vicente as a Zone Leader! And my comp is one of my best friends here in the mission! Elder Bunker!!! I am so stoked! Its going to be so much fun!!!!! We are going to work so hard in this new area!! But now lets get to why this week was so hard...
So I have been here for 6 months now, this has been my favorite area easily! I love all people here in this area! The members are awesome but especcially all the people I have met in the area! I have learned how to love people here in this area! A type of love that is honestly hard to devolpe for some people! But i have learned how to have the pure love of christ for all the people that I have taught and helped! So last night I said my goodbyes to everyone in the area! And it was so hard! Im going to miss them all! The hardest goodbyes were Flia Frontera which is the family that I have been with for 5 months now, and Flia Juncos, the family of Carla, Carlos, and Jaun Pablo! The 3 youth that were baptized 3 weeks ago! We a huge dinner with Flia Juncos to finish off the night! It was so good! And during the dinner, The mom, Soledad, started to speak and thank us for eveything we have done and what not and we started to all just say our "last words" and it was so hard! I have never felt to heart broken in my life having to leave them to go to a new area! I really do love this family so much and am so happy to see them progress in the church! They are the best!

Well i love you all! I am super excited to get to a new area! I am super excited to leave the office and have all the time in the area to help the people! I know that my Heavenly Father called me here to Córdoba and he keeps calling me to each area that I go to! I love the mission so much and so happy to be here! Love you all and I hope you have a great week! Sorry for the really long email hahaha
