Argentina ~week 54
This week was another good week.
On Monday after PDay we finished moving most of our stuff to the new pension.
On Tuesday in the morning we had Zone Meeting. After that and lunch we had exchanges with our District Leader. I was with Elder Araneda and Elder Meza was with Elder Orellana. We mostly just looked for new investigators to teach.
Wednesday morning was the same and then we started cleaning the old pension alot. We finished the exchanges and went to teach Felisa and her granddaughter but they weren't home. Later we had missionary correlation meeting.
Thursday we had what is called a 'Gira Misional' which is when someone from the 70 comes and they give talks. Elder Spitale came and they talked about finding investigators and receiving references. After that we visited our investigator Olga and then had Executive Committee meeting.
Friday morning we went to visit a lot of people but none of them were home so we spent a few hours contacting people on the road, giving them a new card the church gave us for easter. We had lunch with the Silva family. All the appointments we had that day got cancelled but we did set up some appointments with new investigators for next week. At night we did weekly planning.
Saturday was the Ward Activity we planned. There were lots of little games and food that we helped plan. About 20-30 people showed up. It was pretty good.
On Sunday we had church. Unfortunately no investigators showed up. Olga said she was going to come but got sick. In the afternoon we went to a few appointments that got cancelled so we visited Felisa. We are trying to help her do baptisms in the temple.
Anyways it was a good week this week. Hopefully this week we can find some new investigators. Next week is transfers but I think I'll still be here with my companion.
