This week was pretty chaotic and unsure. We had transfers last monday so Tres's companion left our area and Tres´s new companion forgot his passport so he had to wait like 5 days in the mission home haha. But that meant that Tres was with us all week. If you don´t know Tres and I are cousins and the chances of us serving in the same country are pretty small but let alone the same mission/zone/area/companions is insane! It was so much fun. We could actually have fun and still work way hard and I loved it. He was in our area for a couple days and we went to his area for a couple days.
More great news. I weigh 180 pounds. Like where was this during baseball goodness.
I don´t have too much to say this week though. On Saturday we did service for this family in our ward and one of the sons is 19 and an investigator. His names Ezequil. Way hard worker and super nice. He´s married and has twin daughters that are like the Argentine version of June and Ruby!! So cute! Well we took off their whole roof and added an extension to their house which was literally twice the size as the house to start. I was sick to my stomach building it because it was just too jimmy rigged haha. We have plywood as walls and blankets blocking wind. I welded the roof together with just scraps of metal he could find lying around. Super sketch haha but it'll be alright.
Now for the subject line "Milagros." Milagro means miracle. Yesterday in church we were introduced to two women in our area that weren´t members but had friends that were members that brought them to church. haha and guess what their names are!! Milagro!! haha so ironic and such a blessing!!! So i also found out just how little baptisms our mission gets and it´s because our investigators have to attend church three times before they are baptized. Our mission only had 9 in the whole month! Pretty much they have to become fully converted before they are baptized which makes sense because we have enough menos activos running around. My goal is to leave this area with more people attending church than before and yesterday was a huge blessing for us.
Oh and I thought Eli like died or something. He's emailing my other email.....come on now Eli.. wake up bro.
S/o to AF for whoopin on LP on puttin them in their place:) S/o to english haha literally so grateful this is my first language!! I love spanish but english is so important to have!
Love you all and this truly is the only true church on the Earth today. I wouldn´t be at the end of the world if it wasn't. Thanks for all the support!
Oh i also had one of the best meals of my life this week. We had so many chrizos on Saturday. Like i probably had 7....toooo goooooooood. Definitely something we'll be eating when I get back.
