September 8, 2014-Vale La Pena

Vale La Pena

Just another great week down here in good ol Comodoro Rivadavia.  Suns out..not too much wind..just a great week!

We moved in to our new pension.  I am so tired of packing it's ridiculous! haha but hey.. I'm getting a little better with cramming everything in my bags.  It was actually a miracle how we found our pension.  We were at district meeting Tuesday morning when we get a phone call from our investigator Alexìs' dad.  1. We were pumped he was calling us and  2.  He called us to tell us he found us a pension! Huge miracle.  We now live behind their grandparents.  It's this tiny red shack that has one roomish thing and a bathroom kinda thing.  We were just so excited that it was our investigator's family that we were like WOO WE'll TAKE IT.  We then realized that night when we had no heater, kitchen, or lights that we might have needed to look a little better.  Morning came and I put my hand on the window to hear what kind of deathly animal was making this awful rooster crow that I broke the window just putting my hand on it.  Haha it's a little fixer upper but every day it's getting better and better.

We truly do love our pension now. And we're living behind this old couple again. BONUS. Our first night they invited us over for some mate and tea and juice for us and the old man literally went through his life story.  Literally...he went year by year since he was 9 years old when he was kicked out of his uncles house then went to work and didn't meet his mom till he was 18 but by then there was no love or anything and he shook hands and went off again.  He talked about the 40's like it was yesterday!! I am so grateful to be able to serve here and meet people like this old couple .  It makes everything worth it when you can learn about the past of someone who has been through everything and then some and note they have 10 kids who all work hard and they are all married!!! I repeat 10 kids and all of them are married.  That does not happen here!! Even member's! So ya we are about to go to work!

We had stake conference this weekend and 2 of President daughters came down.  It was so fun talking with them.  One of them knows Lauren Watts and was told to give me a hug and Sister Roger's was sad when she had to tell her that we can't hug her.  Pretty funny.  Amazing conference.  President Rogers is truly a man of God who wants more than anything for people to have the opportunity to be sealed in the temple for time and all eternity.
Well sorry about the novel..wasn't planning and sharing all that but when you get lucky enough to not have a broken keyboard down here you have to take advantage.
Be happy this week..the Church of Jesus Christ has been restored and we're living in it..what more could you want?  

Love you all,

Elder Cordero
