Time is passing faster and faster . . . . .
With my new companion! :) Hermana Fry! and Presidente y Hermana Zanni :)
Just siiiiiiinging in the rain! with a friendly dog :)
Check this out! during the world cup there was a lot of crazy stuff...
Sometimes it gets a little muddy..
With Ana and Julieta- two of the Zanni kids! So cute!
Teaching our English class!
Our oven doesn't work and we wanted to make brownies so we tried to do brownie pancakes...nailed it! haha. not.
Another week in the life of an Argentinian missionary has flown by!!!! It just keeps getting faster and faster!!! But I am trying to live everyday working hard and using the time how my Heavenly Father wants me too. :)
Soooooooo, Hermana Fry and I are working hard! We have been trying to find some new investigators and we have definitely seen a lot of blessings. A week ago we felt impressed to knock a door...actually it was a voice machine thing (haha, I don't know what it is called in English but we talk through a box in front of the house). A lot of the time the people answer the phone box thing and tell us that in that moment they are not interested. But this time was different!!! The woman, Maria, heard the name of the church and came to the door! She said that her husband was an active member when he was little but hasn't gone in a very long time. In that moment she really was busy but told us to pass by another day. Soooo a few days later we went back. She answered the door with tears in her eyes. She didn't tell us exactly what was her health problem but she was distraught and we were able to talk with her some about the Atonement of Christ and how he knows exactly what she is going through. At the end of our time together we told her that we were going to give her the Book of Mormon. She looked at us with big eyes and an open mouth. ´´Seriously, you are going to give it to me? For ME? My own copy??´´ She took it and held it close. She told us that she would start reading it that very night. :) She is really busy this week doing medical studies but we were able to meet her husband in the street a few days ago and he also told us that after all of the busyness with the medical stuff he would like to visit with us. Sooooo. Miracle. Blessing. I really just LOVED how she treated the Book of Mormon like the precious word of God that it is.
Also, things are going well for Alejandra and her step daughter Diana! They both want to get baptized but Alejandra is still struggling with the getting married thing. She already had plans to get married next year and the change to do it now is a bit hard. But we are working on it! Diana, however, CAN get baptized soon! I just love her! We visited her Tuesday and she showed us that she was reading in the Book of Mormon in 1 Nephi chapter 4. Then we visited us Saturday and she was in chapter 9!! :) She remembered her baptism date and told us boldly that she had already told her dad that she is going to become Mormon. :) haha, so she is doing well!
Another change! Our ward is bigger now! Yesterday there was a change in ward boundaries and we now are bigger with more members! We are very excited about this. Our cute little ward has been struggling with having people to fill callings and I know that this change was heaven sent. :)
Well, all is well here! I am once again being reminded of the power of the Gift of Tongues. Hermana Fry doesn't even have two weeks in Argentina and can already speak and understand really well. Her first Sunday here she was already giving a talk in the Sacrament meeting. :) Haha, She is great and I am blessed to be able to be with her!
LOVE YOU ALL! Have the best week ever!!!!
I know God lives! I know the power to act in his name is found in the priesthood. I know the Holy Ghost will lead and guide us if we do what he tells us. I know Jesus Christ was resurrected and because of that all of us will do the same someday. I know He loves us and helps us!
