May 19, 2014- #Primero!!!!


Yoooo so ya this has been the longest week ever!!!!!!!! It was too
good to see the fam on Mother's Day.  Elder Tarwater just told me it
was last week? No wayyy haha seems like forever ago!

opportunity to baptize him.  He is the little dominican boy that we
have been teaching.  He honestly is the coolest kid in the
world!!!!!!!!  We asked him why he wants to be baptized and he said
because he doesn´t want to say bad words anymore or fight with his
siblings. haha he's so sick! It was kinda sad though.  His parents
didn't even come to the baptism.  He came with his older brother
that's 13 and his older sister that's 11 and his neighbor friend.
He's 9 years old.  Honestly he knows 100000000 times more about the
gospel than I did at his age.  He knows the covenant he just made.  He
truly knows!! I am so grateful to know him! We were able to have a
couple investigator's come to the baptism as well so that was perfect.
The members of the ward helped out and we were able to have about 25
people come....well 12 of them were missionaries in our area but still
ha it was nice to have some seats filled.

I gave him that tie that Christine Neeleman sent me and he LOVES it!
PERFECT size! Little clip on green tie!

Today is transfers and Elder Salas has a 24 hour bus ride ahead of him
to Trelew! I was with him for 2 transfers and not gonna lie he didn't
teach me too much but the fact that he didn't speak english helped a
ton haha.  My new comp hasn't arrived yet so I'm with Elder Tarwater
till tomorrow so that's awesome! Elder Salas did give me a River
jersey and it's toooooooo sick! Brand new and my size!

I realized yeserday how hard it is going to be to leave this area!  I
have such amazing true friends here! Tomas, Georgina, Ramón, Eury,
Ezequil, my mission leader, all the families in the ward...all the
menos activos that we visit! It's going to be so hard!!!!!!!!!!!!! I
could honestly stay in this area for two years and would be pumped.
All mud...all ice...i literally have mud up past my knees! I can't
walk out of the cabin unless I have my boots on!

So my new comp is gringo as well.  Apparently i know more spanish than
him so this shall be interesting when we teach the homies that don't
have teeth!

Pray for Ramón if you can.  He needs some encouragement to keep
progressing! His spirit is so strong!

I have learned that the spirit really is everything.  There are some
missionaries that only teach for the numbers and I honestly feel bad
for the people they teach!! I know that when we have the spirit as we
teach it's Heavenly Father working through us.  When we talk about His
son and the incomprehensible sacrifice that he gave for each and every
single person that has ever lived and will ever live we NEED to have
the Spirit with us!  I LOVE being a missionary for what the definition
is.  We represent Jesus Christ.  As a member of this church we
represent Jesus Christ! Service is the best way I have found to thank
Him just a little.

p.s. Eury's last name is Cordero... which is Lamb in castellano....so
we're cousins.

Our zone with our dope t shirts that we had made! They have our
mission symbol with a temple and our names on the back!
