Barro is mud and there is sooooooo much of it here... I LOVE IT!!!
So this was the first full week with my new red headed comp Elder Hervey from Missouri. We are already like brothers!!! He's like a true hipster long board and into art kind of guy but so funny and we go to work!! We crushed the whole mission in contacts this week because we literally talked with everyone we saw about this gospel! ha 115 different people we talked to in 6 days! It makes the days fly by when you can have so much fun sharing this gospel.
Milagro's is AMAZING!! She's 11 and is truly deciding to be baptized because she knows she needs to be to live with Heavenly Father and Jesus again. SHE KEEPS NOTES BY HER BED SO WHEN SHE PRAYS SHE CAN WRITE DOWN HER FEELINGS AND THE ANSWERS TO HER QUESTIONS!!!!! She truly is the best example to her family. They told her that if she is going to get baptized then she needs to go to church every week, she needs to marry someone in the temple, and she needs to teach her kids everything about thie church and always be strong in the gospel. Her parent's will be baptized and married in the temple some day! It would be a lot easier if there were a temple within a week long bus ride! But thats why we're here! Our goal is to have a temple in the Patagonia and little by little it's starting to progress. That's why the news that my area might become a stake is such a big deal! That's all the member's are talking about! Gosh it makes me sick thinking about all the temples that are in a days trip up there in the states.
It has rained all week and I literally have mud up to my knee's. We're on an island so the ground is super soft and you just sink in top the mud and at night we can't see anything so we're basically swimming in mud haha. I really don't want to leave this area! I only have four more weeks here and I'm gone and that is just terrible!
I LOVE sharing my testimony! My spanish is improving so much because my comps spanish is lacking a little bit haha so I now have to translate for him sometimes when two weeks ago it was Elder Salas helping me! It really does prove though the importance of the Holy Ghost because without that we wouldn't have any success! We are going to be having some wedding's coming up and I talked with President and he said we could have them in the church!
Ramón shared his testimony yesterday at church so that was unreal! and he said I could take home a puppy of his best dog when I go home so that's awesome just coming back to the states with a dog!!:)
That's so awesome to hear about Reegan and the softball team! Bummer to hear that AF lost. Bart!! I've told everyone that I have a homie coming here in the summer!! haha bring some ear muffs and a nice coat!! maybe throw in some ear muffs for ya boy too haha. Ya it is all sorts of cold down here but it's all good!! After the mission I'm bringin the family back here for sure!! I'm praying for all of you:)))))))) LIFE IS GOOD:):)
Psyche this is definitely a cross that we found at the very highest point of our area:) some burial thing as well.
