First off, happy birthday Mckinley!!!!!!!! I heard you're going down to St. George this week. Way sweet!
What is up!?
Well this week has been bittersweet. They did this big campaign thing in Argentina that allowed anyone that needs medical treatment or glasses to receive it for free. But the thing is is that you have to stand in line outside and they only help the first 150 people that day and if you are not one of those you have to wait till the next day. This went on for like two weeks and they actually helped sooooo many people which was awesome. So why is it important? Well my comp wanted glasses so we went last week and a member took us to stand in line at 5:30 in the morning! It was SO cold! Anyways we finally got to the point where they were going to test us to see if we need glasses which was at like 12 in the afternoon and there was a TV camera right in my grill. haha We laughed..turned out I don't need glasses and my comp doesn't really need them either but i guess he just really wanted them. Ya i was kinda mad. haha but the next day we were stopped a few times and were told that we were on TV!! hahaha we made the Argentine News that broadcasts over all of Argentina!! So that was awesome!
Saturday we were packed with lessons and we ended up having 3 full meals! One was pretty busche. It was an Peruvian family that fed us rice and all the crap and intestines inside the chicken. Basically rubber with a nasty flavor.
Milagro´s is awesome. She´s 10 and her family knows a lot about the church but her parent's are not married but they fully support her daughter joining the church. We have this little homie Eury being baptized on the 10 of May and we are almost positive Milagro will be too that day.
TOMAS IS KILLING US. When we teach him he loves every second and he has built a lot of trust with us. He broke up with his girlfriend for good now and he said he would for sure go to church yesterday. Ya nope. Bailed last minute because he had work. We should have 3 or 4 baptisms in May but these people need to realize the importance of attending church!!!!!!
So guess what!? They are going to build a chapel in our area at the start of next year!!!!!!!!!!!!! No more meeting in an old pizza joint!! We were so excited when the president of the branch announced that!
Ramón is going to go to all of our lessons with us tomorrow and I know he will help so much. This guy has nothing but what he does have he´d share it with everyone. He's starting to sell his little birds he has all of his house in order to buy food for two days. His all time dream since he was a little kid was to go to the United States but he was never able to because of all the paperwork and the legal issues before. I told him once I return home and have some money i would bring him here.
Oh mom! haha this less active family that we brought back to the church now feeds us every Thursday and the mom is crazy! She sales finger nail polish and stuff and makeup and stuff and she always asks me and Elder Salas if we want to buy anything.....like naw we're good. haha but she gave me some eye shadow for you! I told her you wouldn't get it for probably two years and she insisted! haha so i have some top of the line eye shadow for you;)
We met a lot of new people this week that seemed very interested that we'll see tomorrow.
I love being a missionary and I love spreading the true gospel that is on the earth right now. We are so lucky to be a part of something so special!! Oh and i can´t send pictures this week. I forgot my camera at the cabin. Oh.. Elder Salas cut my hair!! haha i hate cutting my hair so bad!!! But it turned out good so it's whatever!
Love you all and hope you have a good week, Elder Lamb
