Argentina ~week 51

This was another great week. We had lots of problems with no electricity and no water. The elders in charge of the pensions told us that they are looking for a new pension for all 4 of us that live here.
Monday night we had a family night with the Silva family.
On Tuesday we had zone conference in the morning. They talked alot about our purpose as missionaries, to preach repentance to baptize. After that we taught our investigator Felisa about Temples and Family History work. Then we went to the Silva family house to get haircuts. Wednesday morning we went back to the Silva family to help paint their house. But it was a little rainy so we helped mix cement to make their counter tops. They gave us lunch. Then we went to visit this crazy guy Hugo who always talks to us in the streets. He's a drunk so we invited a member to go with us. They both cancelled on us though. So we spent the rest of the day looking for people to teach.
Thursday morning we went to visit a few less active families. Then, after lunch we visited Felisa and talked about the baptismal interview and asked if she felt ready for baptism. She told us yes. Then plan was to have her interviewed on Sunday after church and baptized on the 27th. That night we had executive committee meeting.
Friday we did weekly planning in the morning. Then we had lunch with the Morel family. A less active family, but we got them to come to church on Sunday. Then we went looking for some old investigators, then we had missionary correlation meeting.
Saturday we had lunch with the Jerez family, read with Felisa the story of Lehi's Vision, and spent the rest of the time looking for people to teach.
Sunday morning we went to church. Unfortunately none of our investigators came. We were going to have Ward Council after church, but they cancelled it like always. We had lunch with the PiƱol family then went to visit some of the people that we invited to church but didn't come. Felisa's family told us she didn't come because she was at her daughter's house. Hopefully we can help to get ready for baptism soon.
Anyways here's some pictures of what happened this week. I have more pictures and videos on my onedrive account that my parents have access to.
And that's about it that happened this week. It was a pretty good week. Hopefully we can help more people get to church next week!
