Moving and Teaching

Keeping Warm 

Hey fam,

The week was pretty similar to the last one.  Nothing too crazy happened, except we moved from one department to the one next door.  It turns out that the plumbing under the shower was broken, and we were flooding underneath our house because the pipes were busted.  So we spent all of this morning moving next door.  It is the second time in 2 months that I have been involved in helping missionaries move. We have been working a lot with less actives this week, and the two families we have been focusing on, Familia Lujan and Familia Villareal, ended up coming to church yesterday, so we were able to see a little of the fruits of our labors during the week. 

We also found a man, named Adolfo, who expressed interest and we taught him about modern day prophets in the street, and he wants us to come to his house and teach him more. That is the only "investigator" we have, mainly we are working with the ward council and visiting less/inactives.  We have ward council every Sunday morning (apparently the Area Presidency has requested that we do that instead of twice a month).  It is cool to be in a functioning ward with all of the auxiliaries and people that want to work.  We also passed around the calendar for lunches for the month of July in the Relief Society, and we have lunch every single day minus Pdays, I count that as a miracle!  

I haven't really had anything weird to eat here so far.  Yesterday I had a black Brazilian stew, which looked kind of funky but was delicious.  I have been studying D&C, sections 110-120 this week, and the first couple of chapters in Jesus the Christ. Exchanges with the Zone Leaders are only once a transfer.  The other missionaries (the sisters) in my district work well. The whole area is pretty much the same, lots of first lessons but it’s hard to get the second one. No holidays here recently, the next one is July 9th, their independence day here in Argentina.  Life is good, and the new apartment is better than the last one, so I can’t complain too much.  

Sounds like y’all had a fun week, I would have liked to have been at the farewell for the Ashtons.  Sounds like a really good time, and you got to see a lot of our old buddies.  Tell everybody up in Dallas hi for me, and I hope you all have a great week and 4th of July!  It will be the only one I spend outside of the states, but I may throw on the Star Spangled Banner in our apartment on Saturday.  

Love you all!
