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.

July 17, 2017
This email might be poorly typed because the computer place we are in is freezing and I cant think very clearly

Monday- Super great day! During the night we met a great new family to start working with and then after that we headed over to another house to celebrate the birthday of an investigator of ours named maxi. He just turned eight and is so excited to be baptized. He is so stinking cute. We made him a cake and that night and we celebrated with him and his family in their humble 1 room, falling apart, brick home. I am pretty sure if he smiled any harder his face was going to break haha. It was such a simple night but it just really hit me hard how much happiness comes from serving and loving others.

Tuesday- Today was quite the adventure. I did divisions today and headed to another area called castelar. It was definetly a memorable experience. It was quite a change because I went from the most dangerous and poorest areas in our mission to the biggest, most modern, and safest just for a day. I seriously had never even seen houses so big! But today was just a reminder that when people are so busy and have more money in their lives, sometimes their relationship with God is at the bottom of their priority list. We walked for 7 hours strait and didnt sit down once. No I am not kidding. No I am not exaggerating. It ended up being so worth it though because I found out last night that one of the families we contacted and found today went to church and wants to get baptized. And it is so great because that area hasnt had a baptism in who knows how long. Huge miracle.

Wednesday- Today we did a continuation of our service project de la semana pasdada where we were chipping away a hole in the cement floor. It is surprisingly super satisfying.

Thursday- Pretty normal day. We got a lot done and were able to meet a lot of great people. En la noche we were headed to the house of some investigators where someone stopped us in the street and let us know that our investigators were criminals wanted by the goverment with a pretty sketchy back story. Yeah so that was a close call and also a huge blessing. We wont be passing by again haha

Friday- We went out and did some visits with a recent convert in our ward in and it went so great! It is always stressful because when people acompany us I want to make sure things go smoothly and its a good experience and today went absolutely perfectly

Saturday- Baptisms today! Everything turned out great. Hicimos brownies but while the service was happening ants got all over them! The funny part is Argentines love them so much they eated it anyway haha

Sunday- It was so cold in the morning when we went out to look for investigators for church! I seriously couldnt believe it! I felt like I was in an argentine winter wonderland with just mud instead of snow. 

Well I hope everyone has a great week!
