This week was awesome! We saw so many miracles everywhere it was so crazy!
When I came into this area there wasn´t a lot to work with, but my companion and I have been working our butts off and we are getting a ton done! We are so tired it is ridiculous but it has definetly been worth it.
Our big focus this week was basically just getting more people to teach. And this week we did just that! We found 20 new investigators this week!!! Not just mas o menos investigators but people that are super prepared to hear the gospel! All we did was talk to more people on our way to appointments and they literally just fell into our laps. They are all so amazing. I know without a doubt we were truely lead to them. So many times this week we meet these new people and they told us how the just lost a child or something tragic had happened and how they had been praying for God to send them hope. It has been incredible. We are super excited this week to see how everything goes as we start to teach them more.
And the biggest miracle of all this week: The miracle of the lost debit card
So last week we went to the bank to take out money. On Wednesday I had realized that I was missing my debit card. I then realized that I had forgetten to take it out of the machine when we got cash out on monday. We basically figured it was toast. I am not saying Argentines are theives our anything but we were almost positive that I wasn´t going to get it back. So we were going to cancel the card, but we went to the bank first to see if somehow it was still in the machine or if someone had found it and given it to them. They looked but they didnt have it so we left the bank and called the guy in the mission office to cancel the card. We tried several times but the call for some reason wouldn't connect. We then had lunch and we were going to try and call afterwards but my companion had a headache so we pushed it off again and decided we would just do it later that night (the card didn´t have like any money on it). After lunch we had this appointment to go to so we got on our bikes but we decide to take this different route. On our way there these two cops on the sidewalk (Marcos Paz has cops just stand on certain sidewalks during the day to watch stuff) looked at us weird and then called us over. This cop then pulls out my debit card and asks if it one of ours!!! My companion and I just like looked at each other with our mouths wide open in a daze. We couldnt believe it!!! Such a miracle!! Somehow those cops got a hold of it and somehow we happened to ride by the ones that had it and somehow they recognized us as the owners and asked us. So cool!!! What a blessing we didn't cancel it too!!!!
It was definetly an awesome week. And to top it off, we found this awesome family last night on our way home. We taught them the restoration and they all wanted to get baptized!! My companion literally pulled out his planner and a pen to write down their names and was like ¨alright, who is getting baptized?!¨. It was so awesome! And the best part is they have extended family that are members of our ward! We are super excited!
I hope everyone has a great week!
