Mini MTC for a day!

City Streets

Milk in a bag!

Awesome Ward Mission leader!

MTC for a day!
May 18
How's it all going? this week was the temple dedication for the Cordoba, Argentina temple! It is the second temple to be built here in Argentina so everyone was so happy! Every stake center in the whole country of Argentina broadcasted the dedication of the temple so every stake center was an extension of the temple. President Uchtdorf and elder christofferson came down to dedicate the temple. Elder Christofferson served his mission in Cordoba so it had to have been very special for him. They both gave awesome talks! The dedication was an awesome experience! Since Sunday was like going to temple our investigators couldn't go but we brought them to the broadcast of the temple celebration Saturday night. It was super fun. We have a new investigator named romina. She was referral from a recent convert. She really liked the temple celebration! We are working with her right now so please pray for her. We are still working with hermana ponce. She is progressing pretty well. She is quiting smoking very well. Keep praying for her. This Saturday my stake did an mtc for one day and we were the teachers! It was super fun! Next Monday we are doing an activity with the whole mission! The only info they told us is we have to show up in sport clothes and its possible we wont have time next Monday to write so maybe i will write you guys next Tuesday! Love you all!

Focus on finding!

Hola familia!!! Yesterday was great! It was so fun talking to you guys! I think I told you guys everything yesterday so I don't have too much to say but this week was great! We are focused on finding more investigators right now. We are still working with Adrian. He is an awesome kid. We are also working with Eugenia Ponce. She is the mom of the Ponce family. She works Monday through Friday until late in the night so we can only see her Saturdays and Sundays. She has a baptismal date for the last week in May or the first week in June. Please pray for her. Her main problem is she smokes like 15 cigarettes every day. She sets goals to quit so please pray to help her. Here it is starting to get super cold but I kind of like it. Today for pday we are going to McDonald's and then to play soccer!  Welp that's about it for this week. I love you guys!

Staying with Elder Bonilla in Virreyes

Magali's Baptism

The Navone Family

The Ponce Family

Today is transfers and I will be staying here in Virreyes with Elder Bonilla for my last transfer in the mission! I cannot believe it. Josh Jensen wrote me a letter today. He is my friend that was in Grandma and Grandpa's ward in Peru! He said Grandpa is a legend in Peru. He said Grandpa baptized so many leaders there!
This week was good. Magali got baptized! She is also from the Ponce family. She is awesome! The whole family are members except the mom and her son who is 18 yrs old. But they are all so awesome! This past Friday was a holiday in Argentina. Every year for this holiday everyone makes a stew called locro. Its pretty good. It takes like 6 hours to make it. Our ward made it Saturday and they started at 5 in the morning! But its super good. Its full of all sorts of meats, a ton of vegetables and also intestines. Right now we really need to find more investigators. Sunday we found a kid named Adrian. He is 15 yrs old and his dad is a member. He is so awesome. He went to church and loved it. He is really open with us and he really wants to change! Please pray for him. Welp that's about it for this week. I can't wait to talk to you guys on Mothers Day. I think I will be calling you guys at like 6 or 7 in Argentina time so I think that will be like 2 or 3. Love you guys!
