Week 60, Las Delicias, Rosario, Argentina

Another week!!!

So.... This week was good! We had a good number of lessons and we’re way excited for some of our investigators! Friday, was national ditch day because it was the first day of spring and we had plans to find a kid Johnny (that’s a friend of a member). We visited the member and then went to Johnny’s house but he wasn’t there so we talked to a kid on the corner tending to a horse while it was eating grass. (Yes, a horse in the middle of the suburbs.) While we talked to him a group of his friends show up and guess what, one of them is Johnny. We talked to all of them and then had a lesson in the street. They’re all super great and are all like 14-15 years old. Today they played soccer at the churchwith them and tomorrow we have a Family Home Evening with them! Everybody needs to talk to their friends and bring them to activities in the church! That is how it should be!

So... We got robbed. haha They took our phone and Elder Haderlies backpack that had his camera. He was way upset. We’re safe though so don’t worry. It happens, but not often. We were walking back from lunch on Saturday and there was nobody on the street, so they came up from behind and scared the crud out of us. Anyways... that’s over. haha I still cant believe it happened. 

Something that I was thinking a lot of this week was prayer and how most of the time we don’t use it to our full advantage. We must pray to receive the blessings that Heavenly Father WANTS to give us! I’ve been obsessed with reading the General Conference talks from April 2012 too. I’m super excited for General Conference in two weeks! Invite everybody! This is the talk that I really loved.


Read it! Then ask God if it’s true! He will answer you! If you’re not a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, read it and pray. If you feel good after, it’s an answer from God! If you receive that answer, talk to my Mom! She felt that too about 20 years ago. We would love to share with you.

I love being a missionary and don’t want to slack off. It’s hard being perfectly diligent, but I’m learning.
