Argentina~ week 15

We've had another busy week, this week but it was great!
Last Monday, after PDay we went to the house of a couple. The wife is really active and teaches the gospel principles class. The husband was really inactive, and missionaries have been working with him for a long time. He told us that last week he had a dream like 3 times, of the picture of Jesus on in the clouds with all the angels, and he heard a voice asking him why he left the path and that he knows what path is right and that he needs to come back. He came to church the last two weeks and looks like he's becoming active in the church again.
Tuesday we had district reunion, and afterwards we had exchanges, and I was in another area until Wednesday.
Wednesday we had a few lessons with some of our investigators after I came back from exchanges.
Thursday we were contacting some of the references we got from working in the fair. We taught some of our investigators and less actives. We also spent an hour looking for a person we contacted on the street, who gave us their direction. After being unable to find their house, we began walking back, and as we were almost in front of their house, he rode by on his bike and invited us in. He told us he was just getting back from work. Now they are new investigators.
Friday we had exchanges again, but I stayed in the area. We had lots of stuff planned, but almost everything fell through.Saturday morning we had 2 services planned, and both fell through, and our lunch too. It seems like crazy things always happen on the days we have exchanges. At night we had a lesson with some investigators we had for only 2 weeks but they are progressing alot. Its a mother and a daughter who is married, but the spouse isn't living with them. We have recent converts really close by with almost the same ages and situations who always come with us when we teach. They always read the things we leave for them. They asked us if they can come to our church, so we didn't even have to invite them. They came the whole time and said they loved it. They participated alot in the classes at church too. There is a good chance they'll end up getting baptized.
Today we had zone activity. We went to the church of our zone leaders, and played soccer. We also played a game with a ton of flour which I have some pictures of. 
I hope we have water in our pension when we get home so I can clean all this flour out of my hair. Recently we've had like one day each week where we didn't have water. This morning we didn't have water either but it's all good. 
Anyways, I know that all the challenges of missionary work always have greater rewards afterwards. That's why it's always important to do our best and serve with all our heart, might, mind, and strength. I know that there isn't a challenge that we can't overcome and be blessed.
Anyways, have a great week everyone!
