Argentina ~week59

This week was pretty good except for getting a little sick at the end. We had a ward activity and baptismal interview.
On Tuesday we had District Meeting in the morning. After that we had lunch and went with a member, Danny, to visit someone we met in the street named María. She talked to us about alot of weird stuff like Buddha and told us about how she communicated with her dead son. Lots of weird stuff, she was crazy.
Wednesday in the morning we went to visit Olga but she wasn't home, so we just contacted a few people. After lunch we taught Leandro. We talked to him about the priesthood and the importance of living righteously. He told us that he wants to make those changes in his life, but didn't know if he was ready to make and keep that promise. After that we had missionary correlation meeting.
Thursday morning we had exchanges with our District Leader. Pretty much the entire day we were contacting people in the streets and recontacting ones that we talked to before, without too much luck. That night we had executive committee meeting.
Friday morning we finished the exchanges and then did weekly planning. That day we visited Facundo, a young man in the ward who is 18, and has been having lots of problems because alot of his friends use drugs and drink. He also told us he hasn't been praying so we read D&C 10:5 to him and talked about it. Then we visited Leandro again to talk about more of the commandments he needs to keep after baptism. We asked him lots of questions like if he thought he was ready. He told us he didn't think he was ready yet, and also that he hadn't been praying. We read Alma 34 the verses about prayer, and told him he can pray to Heavenly Father and communicate with Him about anything he needs. We left him the commitment to pray morning and night, and really think about the things he gives thanks for and asks for. This helped him alot because he is shy and doesn't talk alot. Then we visited Olga and read the beginning of Moroni 10:1-9 I think, and talked to her about the importance of reading and asking, because she hasn't been reading.
Saturday we had a ward activity almost all day where we ate Locro (a type of stew or something) because of Día del Trabajador (Labor Day here). It was pretty good. I had a sore throat and was kinda sick, but nothing too bad. That night we had English Classes again. I kinda lost my voice from teaching while being sick.
Sunday I could hardly talk all day. We went to church in the morning. Our investigator Leandro came to church all alone, because his friends the Silva family couldn't make it. He came up to us and told us he started praying and wants to get baptized which was awesome. Right after church he had his baptismal interview and passed, so he will be baptized on Saturday. After church and the interview, we had lunch, and visited Felisa because she didn't make it to church because she had no money for the bus, and a few other people.
Today we played soccer in the church for PDay.
Anyways that's about all for this week. After working hard all week we were blessed with the opportunity to held Leandro get ready for baptism, which was awesome.
Here's a video that me, Elder Pruner and Elder Meza made on our balcony because we were bored. The music is Go Down Moses by LowerLights. And a picture of the Locro Activity. I'll send another email with more pictures.
