Week in the Pensh with a miny miracle of repentance!

One weird week forsure.... 

Well to start out wednesday Elder Bunker got sick and another elder from our zone got sick. We went to the hospital to get medicine and stuff then they both went back to rest in the house and I went out with the other elder from our Zone! Elder Guarcax!!! Hes a super dope kid from Guatemala who just got to the mission a month ago! Hes super sick actually! I loved the 2 days i had with him haha we had a lot of fun! 

Finally friday Elder Bunker was better again and we got to go to a wedding which was super dope! The parents of our investigators got married! It was super cooL! At the moment they dont actually want anything but we will keep trying to teach them and help them understand! But now that they are married it will be a lot easier haha!

So other things that happened this week arent very much! it was pretty normal! It was kinda a hard week to be honest with people to teach but its all good! We did have an amazing day yesterday tho! We had division with an area in our zone and elders Peralta y Mills! Mills is actually from Gilbert! He went to Highland! Such a dope kid hahah we are like really good friends here haha its dope! The day was so dope! We taught a bunch of new people and had some amazing lessons with people! In one day we found 16 new people to start teaching and 12 of them accepted baptism coming up in the next month so we will have a lot of work to do :)

Well i love you all and hoipe you have a great week!

Hello everyone!

This past week wasnt the best ever... but we arent even going to talk about that! Lets talk about the positive things! Always can pull something positive out of the situation!

Well let see here, we have a lot of people we are teaching right now! A few of them are really awesome famillies which is amazing! We have 2 more weeks left in the transfer so we are super excited to work extra hard to help all the people we can! We also had a conferance this past week and the capacitations were awesome! Holy cow amazing! President Correa talked to us about why we are here and it was awesome! Something i really like that he said was that we are here to teach a message. we are messengers. we are suppose to leave the messege with them and then it is up to them and their agency to accept it or not! We arent to do anymore than that. We are suppose to teach everyone so that they know of the truth. If they accept they know they will have the chance to be clean from sin, if they dont they will ALSO KNOW that they had the chance to have been cleansed from sin and THEY chose to reject it. 

As missionarys we are set apart with power and authority and we need to teach with this power and authority! I had a cool experiance this week teachig a family that in the end they said they didnt want to get baptized or go to church or anything. I did exactly what president said and testified of the truth. WE are the true church. We do have the authority. We are the Chruch of Jesus Chirst. We have the truth! This doesnt mean we are better than other people. This just means it is our job to help others hear this message so that they can accept it or choose to reject it. But wether they accept or not, they will know that we know that we have the truth!

I love this gospel and this message! I love teaching others about how they can be saved! The mission is the cooelst thing ever! The spírit i feel when i testify of this message is the coolest thing ever! Life it great! Some weeks are better than others but we need to always focus on the positives!

President Nelson is called of God

Conferance is always super great but wow  i have 1 thing to say about this conferance!

President Nelson was called by God to be our prophet in these days! This was the first time I had actually seen a solemn assembly in my life and holy cow it was the coolest experiance ever! I fel the spirit so stong when everyone was standing sustaining President Nelson! The camera moved to his face and tears were falling down his face and the Spirit confirmed to me so strongly that he is called of God to be the prophet! Seriously i dont think i will ever forget the moment! It really is now a huge boost to my testimony! The rest of conferance i also felt the confirmation of this when every apostle that spoke testified of how he was called of God and not of men! That was super cool! 

So beside that i think another super cool thing that happened is the changes that occured in the church! Every change was made so that we work, serve, and love everyone more not less! Getting rid of home teaching wasnt so that we dont work or love people but so that we love them more and dont do it for a number. I really loved everything that happened this conferance! As members of the church, or better just as children of God, we need to love others more! He loves each and every one of us! Our job is to help others feel this same love! If we start loving other more, more people will want to come back to our Heavenly Father and the world will be a better place for all of us! 

Well i love you all! HOpe you have a great week! I encourage all of you to go back and watch some of the talks again during the next few weeks!

Week # no idea....

so this week we had a great time teaching people!! And finally this sunday Tatiana and Luigi came to church! They both liked it too! They are another colombian family that we are teaching! They are the best! So that was forsure the highlight of the week! 

so right now we are teaching a lot of poeple but not all of them are progressing a ton.... argentina is sometimes a little hard with that for the fact that the poeple are super lazy and dont read very often.... so we are just constantly looking for people that really want to learn and willing to read and do what we leave them! but yesterday we had an amazing lesson with our neighbor we are teaching, Walter! hes such a great guy! The other week we left him the inviation of reading moroni 10 3-5 and he told his he prayed, felt great, and then had an amazing week and wants to keep learning more! So that was sooooo great to hear!!!! we then had an amzing lesson with him! I am so excited to see where this leads! he really is a dope guy and his family really needs this gospel! 

So besides that, the week was pretty normal. we worked a bunch, walked a bunch, and sweated a bunch... hahaha but its now starting to get a little bit colder luckily! Well i love you all and hope your weeks are great!

Week 6 of this transfer

This week was kinda a normal week! It was the last week of the transfer which is always kinda the hardest week... no one knows whether or not they are going to stay or go to a new area and a lot of elders dont work as hard... Its quiet disappointing to see but its very common the last week of each transfer. 

But good news is that Bunker and I are staying 1 transfer more together! Thats super good! Our zone had a ton of changes... hahaha only 2 areas stayed the same! So thats going to be fun to get to know a bunch of new missionarys! Im super excited for these next 6 weeks!

So we are teaching a bunch of people right now actually! If you guys can pray for Bruno, Mica and Nachos parents so that they can decide to get married! That would be dope! Also for this list of people we are teaching!
1. Solcito and 8 year old girl whos brothers are members
2. Nicolàs whos 11 and his bro is a member
3. Franco, Alan, y Romina a fam we are teaching that are super awesome.
4. Tatiana, Luigi, Sandra y Felix another fam from Colombia!

A week of work

So lets see here.... this week was a little more dificult! So the other week we kinda baptized all of our investigators that were progressing and going into this week it was a little more dificult... haha we had to look for new people to teach so much! But after a lot of work we found new people to start teaching!!!

So now we are starting to work a lot more with members in the ward!! What our president wants is that the members start to work in the missionary work! What the church lacks here in Argentina is members that do their callings and help others outside of church. Most members are sunday members... and what he wants is that all the members start to help their friends come to church and to give us more referances! So we are going to start that this week! Working more with them and trying to help others feel the joy of this work!  This is something i learned before the mission that this work actually makes one a lot more happier that normal life does. I love life right now and all i do is serve others! When we serve, we are filled with a different type of happiness that beats anything else!

So honestly this week, not much happened! We worked super hard like always! I have really liked being a Zone Leader and trying to help other missionarys the best that i can! I have learned a lot and even learned how to love others even more and think about others before myself! The mission is full of lessons useful for the rest of your life haha!

Well i love you all! SOrry i didnt take any pictures this week.... but ill try and do it this week! Oh next week is transfers so we will see if Bunker and I stay togeher! I sure hope so haha!
