Mathew 15:14-16

14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

April 3, 2017
It was a pretty decent week!

Monday- Living in an apartment of 4 is always entertaining on P-days haha. In our apartment right now we are all missionaries who have a little more time on the mission. After all four of us write home its basically just a comedy show sharing about what is going on back home; friends´s wedding announcements, pop culture we don't understand, weird emails from old friends etc... Proselyting in the night though was a total bummer because we got a text at 6:45 about our lesson plans at 7:00 falling through... The constant struggle. Frustration

Tuesday- Today I did divisions and went to another area. We had a pretty great day! We basically just taught a bunch of young single moms haha. I don't understand what was going on but today for some reason the missionary I was with and I got so many cheek kisses. SO many. I will explain: Instead of giving handshakes down here, a lot of times they will give a kiss on the cheek that shows a little more closeness and friendship. As missionaries we can accept cheek kisses from guys (yes, I know, gross) but we are suppose to avoid as much as possible cheek kisses from women, especially younger women... But like seriously every girl we talked to today sneak attacked us! They would just like come up from behind and grab our faces eliminating any chance of escape! So frustrating!!!

Wednesday- Today we had a training so that was pretty awesome! Everyone in our zone came to our chapel so we were put in charge of getting lunch organized for about the 30 missionaries that were suppose to come. ahhh it was very enjoyable to have so much power haha. With the money the offices gave us we ordered these huge sandwiches that were literally a piece of heaven. And of course after the meeting there were a few left over so we took care of them:)

Thursday- Today we taught Laura! She is doing so well. It is a struggle because she is gaining such a strong testimony but she works on the weekends in a resort spa in the center of Buenos Aires so she can't always come to church. It is so great though because she totally she realizes she is not happy there and wants to change jobs. We talked a little in our lesson today about eternal families and in our discussion she just paused, looked up, then said with tears in her eyes, ¨now I just see the family isn't perfect unless its made with God¨. She is seriously so great.

Friday- Today we did some service in the morning cutting grass! I find it very entertaining how relaxing doing stuff like that is for me now haha. Its kinda pathetic haha. Then in the afternoon we did some traveling and worked in a smaller town called Jaurgeui. I like to call it Zion;)

Saturday and Sunday- Conference!!!!! It was so great! All of us American missionaries got to watch it in english in a separate room! The spirit of general conference is always so great. My favorite talks were definitely from Elder Rasband and Joaquin Costa. Look them up. You won't be disappointed:)

Well so I hope everyone has a great week!
