Staying in Constitucion

Easter was just a normal day yesterday. No one really talked much about it. So today was transfers. I am staying here in Constitucion and Elder Fuentes got transferred. My companion is Elder Flores from Colombia! He is awesome! I only have like 2 hours with him so I don't know a lot about him but I am really excited. He is from Bucaramanga, Colombia. Ask Grandpa Clark if he knows where that is. You need to have Grandpa write me and tell me about Colombia or things my companion might know. Elder Flores's first companion in the mission was Elder Harrison who is Tyler's friend and is from draper. Yesterday Agustin got baptized! He and his family were former investigators that me and Elder Fuentes found like 3 months ago but they did not progress at all so we dropped them. About 2 months ago we passed by their house one morning before church and invited them to church and Agustin decided to come. We didn't really think anything of it and we didn't talk to them for a while but about two weeks ago Agustin found us in the street and said he has been waiting for us to go to church every Sunday morning ever since he came to church for the first time and we never came to pick him up. We brought him to church the next Sunday and taught him all the lessons and he got baptized the next week! He is a funny kid! This week we were working and president called all the missionaries in the zone and invited us all to go to the stadium of the boca and he payed for all of us to go in and we hung out for a bit and he took a picture for our zone. He is starting like a blog or facebook page for our mission so he wants to have pictures and stuff for it. The barbecue last Monday at President Ayre's house was awesome! I felt like I was in the US. We had a ton of hamburgers, hot dogs with soda and chips. There was basketball, trampoline, ping pong and American board games inside. It was super fun. That's about it for this week. One of our investigators his name is Miguel and he is reading the Book of Mormon and praying and really wants to get to know our church so pray that he can receive an answer about our church. Pray that we can find the elect! We have a lot of people that we are going to contact this week so we are super excited for them. Thanks for everything! I love and miss you all!
