Argentina ~week 37

So this week was a great week. We were able to find several new people and go to the temple on Saturday
So Tuesday in the morning we had district meeting, I got a package from my family, and then I was on exchanges staying in another area. We ate at Burger king because we didn't have lunch, and then we just visited a few people.
Wednesday we finished the exchanges after lunch. Then we visited the Villar family, who we are helping reactivate. This sunday then went their 4th time to church.
Thursday in the morning we visited a less active member who asked the relief society to send us. She didn't have very much time, so she just asked us to give her a blessing and we're going to visit her again this week. Then we had lunch with a member and then is started raining like crazy. We tried to visit a few other people but they all canceled because of the rain.
Friday we did weekly planning in the morning. President sent a challenge to everyone to read the Book of Mormon before the end of the year, which is like 5 chapters each day. I'm on 1 Nephi 13 right now. after lunch friday we found a new investigator named Elva Gonzalez. She is a golden investigator. She told us how she always noticed how missionaries are so nice, and thought they were so important, but never talked with them until now. She's an older lady who loves to talk, and she told us she always feel lonely. After talking just a little bit she told us she wants us to come over like 3 times each week, and told us she wanted to come to church. We talked a little bit about faith, and gave her a book of mormon, and then had to go.
Saturday we got permission from our mission president to go to the temple with a family in our ward. We went there and my old ward was all there too, so that was pretty cool. We took some pictures, and I've attached a few below.
Sunday we had Ward Counsel in the morning. Our new investigator came to church and loved it and told us she was going to come next week and try to bring her husband. It was funny because there are a whole bunch of gonzalez families in her area, and none of them are related. After church we visited a couple. The wife is a member for like 20 years, and the husband isn't because he doesn't believe the Book of Mormon and has lots of questions about it. We helped him answer a few questions. Then we had a family night with another family, and that was it.
Anyways, there were lots of blessings this week, and we were able to find some new investigators, and help some less actives!
I'll send another email with a few more pictures this week.
Have a great week!

Training is going very good. We just finished another transfer, and we're both staying here for the next.
