Argentina ~week 67

So this week was pretty busy as always the first week of a transfer, but it was great!
Tuesday was just a normal day. We went out and contacted several people, met some of the members and set appointments. My area is pretty big, so we have to take buses alot, but it's great! That night we had English classes in the church.
Wednesday we had district meeting in the morning. It was my first time eaching that, but we just introduced ourselves, we set weekly goals, and I asked them what they'd to do in our meetings and activities. Then we went out to work, met some less actives and one of our investigators whose son got baptized and went on a mission. She didn't get baptized yet because she says she doesn't feel comfortable in the church. That night we had family night in the church.
Thursday morning I had District Leader training in the morning and they told us our responsibilities. I have to call them every thursday and sunday, collect their reports, do baptism interviews, do exchanges with every elder, and prepare a class every week in district meeting. Then we taught a new investigator and had dinner with a member.
Friday morning we had an appointment with a crazy guy. He was gonna be a new investigator but I think he has severe ADHD haha. We had lunch with a member and went contacting then did weekly planning at night.
Saturday we spent a lot of time organizing the area book which was a disaster, and choosing people we will go visit from there (old investigators, etc.) and did some contacting.
Sunday we had church. Our ward is small, but pretty nice. We're planning an open chapel here in two weeks. We had a small correlation meeting and I shared my testimony in sacrament meeting. Then we went to look for some less actives and new investigators in the cold.
Today we had district activity. We went to the institute building, played pool, foosball, pingpong and a mexican elder taught us how to make tacos.
Here is a picture of our district.
Anyways it was a great week. I know that the Lord blesses us depending on our level of obedience. If we do our best, we will see fruits, maybe big, maybe small, and some we never expected no matter what. D&C 130:20
Have a great week everybody!
