Such a great week! We were so busy all week and it was awesome!
Last night we found out about transfers!.My companion and I are staying together in the same area! Which means I get to stay in Marcos Paz!!! I am pretty relieved because change is always fun but this area is so awesome. It is really weird though because our mission president almost never does stuff like this, so we will see what happens.
This week we taught so many lessons and found so many great people. On Tuesday we found this kid named Agustin and his mom Gladys. We had met Agustin a few weeks earlier in the streets and finally got around to headed back to his house and meeting his mom. They are so awesome. At first we are really skeptical because when we met his mom she was surprisingly friendly and asked some weird question like if we can't get married down here in Argentina and stuff like that. But we have had two lessons with them and they are just so awesome. They just really have a pùre desire to find the true church that jesus christ established. We are super excited for them. They are really strong potential baptisms for this transfer. The only thing is on our way out of their yard our last lesson we saw some marijuana growing in some planter boxes...so we will see what happens with all of that...
Our buddy Pablo the devil worshipper is doing great. He is reading a lot in the book of mormon and has stopped doing animal sacrifices so I guess thats really good. He says he has been having trouble lately though with Satan trying to get him back to his old ways. Like he said people have just been coming to his house offering him drugs and ¨tons of women from the street¨ have been trying to sneak into his house at night... He just really need Jesus....
This Sunday we had 4 investigators at church! It was so awesome. Our 17 year old investigator Belin came with her cousin. Belin was a reference from the sister missionaries in our ward. We have only taught her like three times but we had a lesson with her this week and we made her commit to come to church and she actually came! She walked all they way from her house which is like an hour walk! The only bad thing is we are probably going to have the sister missionaries start teaching them. Our last with her just got a little too questionable. She just had a ton of questions like asking us if we get the weekends off and like what type of music we like, and if we know the local strip club (the funny thing is we live right by it haha), and just a ton of other hints that made us think she might be more interested in us than in the gospel
The sad thing is that stuff just happens a lot lately. I would like to blame it on my companion and I´s stunning good looks but it´s probably just because we are American. The whole family and relationship stuff of this culture is kinda messed up. Everyone has kids when they are like fifteen and absolutely no one is married. Its a struggle. But we are fixing this country one family at a time!!
For easter we didn´t really do anything. It was just a normal day of work but it was still great!
Have a great week!
