Argentina~week 32

So, like I said last week I started training this week! My new companion is Elder Rios from Paraguay. He doesn't speak English and he likes to play Hockey.
Anyways, Tuesday we just went and got our new companions. We received our new companions then got to ride in taxis to our pension. Then we went to the ward activity that night so he could meet the members.
Wednesday, we had district meeting in the morning. After that and lunch, we had a few appointments that got cancelled, but we tried contacting new people but nobody would answer the door.
Thursday we visited a few less actives. We are working hard with a family who used to be really active, and they are wanting to come back to church. That night my bike got a flat tire and we had to bring our washed clothes back which was pretty heavy, and most of it was uphill.
Friday we had a training reunion in the morning. After that we did weekly planning, and had a family night with a family.
Saturday we were working on organizing the area book in the morning. It took quite a while because elders in the past had put alot of things all over the place so we organized it and now it's alot better. In the afternoon, almost all our appointments got cancelled, so we tried contacting. We went like 3 blocks knocking on almost every door but nobody accepted us. My companion was a little nervous to try contacting because of all that so he didn't try yet. We had an appointment with recent converts that night.
Me and my companion are trying hard to get referrals from members because it's alot better than contacting. Also, the other day, some Elders gave us a referral of someone they talked to on the bus who speaks English, so maybe they'll like to talk to us!
Sunday after church and lunch my companion got a flat tire on his bike. Then we were only able to talk to people nearby.
Anyways, that's about it this week. Here are the pictures we took my companions first day!
Have a great week!
-Elder Severtson
