Agentina~week 19

Another great week this week, especially busy this time, being in a trio and working in both areas. I'm with Elder Pazmiño from Ecuador and Elder Racchumí from Peru. They both have about a year in the mission and are great.
We've been running all over the place, literally, to be able to work in both areas, especially with the baptism. We had the baptism Saturday at 3 (we moved it back a few hours than we planned because of the big game, haha), and it was great. We were a little scared because they arrived 30 minutes late, but all went well. I was able to baptize them both, and confirm them the day after. We had an investigator come with us too. Her name is Melani, she's 16, and we found her while working in the fair. She told us once she didn't have any friends. But she went to the baptism, and then to church sundaymorning, then an activity, and then to the lesson we had with our new converts. It looks like she's good friends with them all now, we didn't realize she lived so close to our new converts. We have a baptismal date set for her now too.
This week was also crazy because since the mission split things were a little unorganized. We didn't get our money for the month until a week late, and a lot of missionaries were barely getting by, but I had enough to be just fine, haha. Luckily we had lunch and dinner almost everyday this week with members. They always give us so much food, and I feel like I probably gained weight haha.
Anyways, the baptism went great. They chose the songs 'come all ye faithful' (it's kinda normal to sing the christmas songs in whatever time of year here, it's kinda weird), 'called to serve', and our conpanionship sang the song about the first vision in the tune of 'come thou fount'.
Anyways, that's all for this week. Have a great week everyone!
