This week was a great week! We had a really cool experience this week while we were in Roca doing exchanges with the zone leaders. We were walking down the street and we saw two ladies sitting outside, and we went up to talk with them. One of them was a member, but inactive for a long time, and the other is her sister who is not a member. The member told us that she didnt want anything because she was mad at God because her husband had died about a month ago. We were able to testify to her of the love of God and how everyone of us will be able to be with our loved ones again if we follow the gospel of Christ. It was such a great experience to be able to help someone find the peace and joy that comes from this gospel. The spirit that you can feel as you testify of these divine truths is amazing, and i am so grateful for the opportunities that my Heavenly Father gives me everyday to testify of my Savior Jesus Christ and how through his atoning sacrifice we can be saved :)
Great week! :) Thank you all for all your support! have a wonderful week everyone!
This week was great! It was full of conferences and a new missionary got here so that was cool!
In the conferences this week it was really cool to see old comps! The thing that stook out to me this conference was the reality of the life we had with our father in heaven before this one. In doctrina y convenios 138 we learn that when we were there we learned all that we needed to be able to help others receive salvation through Jesus Christ. It is so important that we apply the atonement in our lives daily so that we can be humble enough to receive those same lessons through our diligent study and personal revelation :)
Also this week we had a really cool experience while working in our area. We were contacting this lady and she told us that her sister in law is a member and she has actually been interested in what it is that we share with the people. So we were able to teach her about the Restoration and the book of mormon, really fast becasue she was working... hahah! but she was super excited to read the book of mormon and it was such a testimony that the Lord really has people prepared for us to teach, we just got to look for them!
This week was great! I love this work :) Todo bien aca en Argentina! Love you all! Have a great week :)

This week was crazy just like the last one! we went down to the south again to do zone conferences this week! We first went to Bariloche and then to Esquel. In the conferences we have been focused on our responsibility as misionaries to raise the faith of all of those around us, and i would say that that is our responsibility as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At baptism everyone of us has made a covenant or a two way promise that we will take upon us the name of Christ and be witnesses of him in every moment, every, word, and every action. That means that every week as we participate of the sacraments we make the promise to our Heavenly Parents that we will try to become more like our older brother Jesus Christ in the way that we act.Those daily actions that we make every week in the service of others is how we can help raise the faith of those around us! Also that means that in every moment we should be ready to testify and bear witness of Christ. In other words, as we partake of the sacrament we make the promise to be missionaries!!!! My invitation this week is to look for at least one oportunity to stand as a witness in Christ in something you do and say for someone in your life. :)
I love this work and this gospel with all my heart. I am learning so much about the importance of always having the Lord on our mind as we go through our daily life. Also this week i have had the chance to work with many misionaries and i am amazed at the testimonies that have been born of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. :)
Christ lives and loves each and everyone of us. :)
Sorry its late! This week was so cool! We went to the south to do exchanges with the Elderes and try and get things rolling. I was able to go to Esquel, Bariloche, and San Martin!! It was so cool!
Just one of the many experiences that i had, when i was in Esquel this week i went with Elder Heward, and we were trying to find new people for them to teach, and nothing was working out. So we decided to say a prayer and then we went to a members house. When we got there the sister of this member was there and told us that she has been interested in what the missionaries do but she was always emberassed to ask. We were able to teach her a little and she was really excited!! It was an awesome expeience to see how the Lord really listens to and answers our prayers!
