Argentina~week 28

This week again has been very busy looking for people to teach. The people here don't want to listen as much and it's way harder to have lessons.
Monday night we had a family night with a less active family.
Tuesday we had district reunion and then a few lessons with less actives.
Wednesday it rained a bunch. It was really cold and all our lessons got canceled. We were able to visit a few members still.
Thursday was great. In the morning we had an awesome zone conference. That night we had an appointment with less active family Villar who we've been trying to meet with forever. They had cancelled the last like 6 appointments we've set. We finally got in and they asked us why we kept coming. We had just been passing by everytime we were in the area. The mom told us they had been lying to us a few times when they canceled or just forgot. She told us she forgot we were going to come that day, until the night before she had a dream of us, and felt she had to let us in. We were able to have a great lesson with them. They still didn't make it to church, maybe just because it was stake conference.
Friday we were able to visit a member who lives just outside our area but goes to our ward. She's been a member like 20 years. Her son is on his mission and one of her daughters died a few months ago of cancer at age 22 or something. The son was able to visit her in the hospital but went back to the mission before she died and stayed there. He comes home in December. But this member hasn't been going to church because it reminds her of her daughter. We were able to comfort her and share our experiences. It was really cool because me and my companion both had experiences with that. His older brother died of cancer and my mom died of cancer, so we were both able to relate to her and help her our. Hopefully she can go back to church soon.
Saturday many appointments fell through again but we were able to visit a few people still.
Sunday was stake conference. Afterwards, we had to wait more than an hour for the bus to come. After lunch it was already like 4 oclock. Our appointments cancelled because there was a huge soccer game that night.
Anyways it was a great week. After continuing to work hard with all our appointments cancelling we had a few really good lessons and contacted a few new people that seem like they could be great investigators.
Here are a few pictures of our bunkbeds, my dresser, and our window view.
Have a great week everyone!
