April 14, 2014-Milagros!

What's good everyone?

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.

con amor,
