September 28, 2015; CONFERENCE WEEK EVE!!!!!!


T minus 5 more days till conference!!!!!! LESSSSSSSGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!

This week has been pretty cray cray... our area in dead middle of central here in Comodoro and there are over 150 names on the member list but only 40 go to church!  This week we took the members list with all the directions and started visiting all the families. Well it was awful.  We had addresses for businesses, clinics, little shops, banks, basically everything except a house that lived a family.  We ended up finding a man that lived behind a retail store in a tiny old house and he was so excited to see missionaries!  It had been years since the missionaries passed and we came in justo! LOVE finding new families!!

I was also blessed to do the interview for another baptismal for an 11 year old in the ward.  It is amazing to see kids with so much knowledge of the gospel and are able to develop their own testimony it.  He brought his whole family and cousins to the baptism and a lot are inactive and now they have said they all want to return.  One of the couples that only the husband is a member told me that he now wants to get married and his girlfriend wants to get baptized!  All because of this young man that was able to gain a testimony of the restoration of the church of Jesus Christ.  He is changing his life and the life of his family and future generations!! It really doesn't matter how old you are or your situation.. you can ALWAYS be an example and a light that shines in the darkness that others will follow.  just huge s/o to Mateo!

This week is gonna be crazy.. we have zone leader council tomorrow then transfers on Monday and some of my best friends are leaving which is sad but awesome to see them finish strong.  

President also has a new assignment for me and it looks like I won't be ending my mission as smoothly as I had hoped.. He called me and Elder Franco to be the new assistants for him and the mission.  We did all the transfers yesterday and Saturday and we start traveling next week..first stop Ushuaia!  

I am BEYOND excited to be able to see my families in Rio Grande, Puerto Madryn, and Rio Gallegos again! Not excited to be back in the office at all but excited to pump up the mission and have more animo for the work here in the Patagonia. 

Thank you so much for your prayers and support! They are all felt!!!!!!  

INVITE SOMEONE TO HEAR THE VOICE OF A LIVING PROPHET!!! how lucky are we to live at this time in history! 

Jesus Christ already came and paid the price for us and every person in that chose His plan! Don't let that act of love go in vain. 

Con cariƱo, 
Elder Lamb
