Argentina ~week 65

So this week was pretty cool. We were able to help alot of people.
Tuesday morning we had district meeting as usual. After we had lunch and taught our convert Leandro's sister, Ruth. Also another one of their friends was there and we taught her too. Ruth wants to get baptized after seeing how it helped Leandro. The only problem is that she has a problem with smoking that we are trying to help her with.
Wednesday we had several appointments that ended up getting cancelled. But we were able to contact several people who may become future investigators.
Thursday we were contacting in most of our free time. We taught Ruth again. We are beginning we the commandments now, because she understands very well the principles of the Gospel. That night we had executive committee. One of the other elders got into an argument with the first counselor because they are always really negative, and never do anything to help us. There have been lots of problems with this ward, and I worry alot about our convert Felisa because nobody in the ward has gone to visit her. Also the ward leaders always make excuses not to do stuff. Anyways I try not to argue or be negative back with them. It's just frustrating sometimes, It's hard to know how to help them.
Friday morning we had planned to do divisions with a recently reactivated kid, Facundo, and also Royer. Facundo is preparing to go on a mission and we want to help him alot and also Royer who was less active a few months ago. Unfortunately they both slept in, so we couldn't do the divisions. Latert that day we did visit Felisa because she hadn't gone to church for like 2 months already. We are worried about her because we though she was really prepared for baptism. But luckily she always wants to go, and is always praying and reading, it's just problems with her family that stops her from going. That night we did weekly planning.
Saturday we had a tormenta blanca (white storm) in my old area, Hudson. It was cool to be able to go there, and see some of the members. After that we practice for a choir we did in the other ward's sacrament meeting because we share a building with them. Then we taught English classes that night.
Sunday at church was cool because we got a less active family to show up. They also called a new ward mission leader who is very excited. Felisa didn't come, but leandro did again, and he brought his down syndrome brother. Also Facundo's mom came, who isn't a member, and we had taught her a few times.
Anyways that's it for this week. It was great to be able to help many people. Next Monday is transfers and I'm pretty sure I'm leaving. I think I'm ready for that though, I've been here a long time.
Here's some pictures: It's really cold here, me in my old area, and me with my companion on the bus.
Have a great week everyone!
