Argentina ~week 95

Hi Everyone! This week was another great week!
On Tuesday in the morning it was raining like crazy! Then we did some contacting in the afternoon.
Wednesday we did some contacting. In the afternoon we had a lesson with the Bravo family. It went great! we talked about eternal marriage and Javier expressed his desire to get baptized and sealed once he gets off house arrest in August.
Thursday we went to the far part of our area again called Aguas Verdes to go contacting again. We met several cool people that may become investigators later.
Friday morning we did weekly planning, and taught Laura and Abril the 10 commandments in the afternoon. Then we went to set appointments with some of our contacts.
Saturday we were contacting most of the day. We taught a less active lady who recently married a nonmember, who we will be teaching soon.
Sunday we had church. Alot of tourists showed up. Then we just went to look for some of our investigators and set appointments.
Today we went to a superhero themed restaurant that is closeby and just opened up for the summer when all the tourists come.
Anyways that's about it for this week. I'm looking forward to another great week then seeing you guys at the end of the week.

Argentina ~week 94

Happy New Year's Everybody!
On Tuesday we had district meeting in the morning and talked about how to fulfill our investigator's needs in the Gospel. In the afternoon we were contacting and had some appointments fall through.
On Wednesday also lots of contacting and an appointment fell through with the Bravo family because they had family over.
On Thursday we went to the farthest part of our area, where me and my companion had never been before to go contacting. On the 3rd house we knock on we meet a lady named Shayla who had talked with missionaries before. We also found many other people that may become investigators in the future.
On Friday we did weekly planning, taught our investigators Laura and Abril, and we taught a less active family.
Saturday we went contacting our potential investigators. We taught Vanesa again, about the restoration. She wants to read the book of mormon, but told us she's not interested in going to our church. We'll see if we can help her more in the next lesson. Saturday night with passed with Hermano Cardozo from the ward and ate asado.
On Sunday hardly anyone came again. We almost had to preside again. Luckily some families showed up right before sacrament meeting so it was great!
Here's a picture of my district, and when we went to pizza libre (all you can eat)
Anyways, that's it for this week. Have a great week everybody! See you in 2 weeks!
