"I'm loving being a missionary out here in Argentina...."

Hola mi familia y mis amigos!

Como están? Its fun hearing about all your spring break and easter plans! Im not jealous at all though because I´m loving being a missionary out here in Argentina! (also next spring break and the next year in general I will be in Hawaii ;)  haha) But seriously this week went really well!

We have a bunch of people we are teaching that are getting close to baptism which is awesome! Jonotan and Eliana are awesome. They are only teenagers but they have been super responsible about getting themselves to church every week and reading the Book of Mormon and all of that stuff. They received their difinitive answer that they want to be baptized during the general conference. Its been awesome to work with them. We are going to have the interview for them this week im pretty sure.

The other day we also found a family while we were in the bus. The 2 youngest daughters were singing so i turned around to comment that they are really good singers and we started talking. It turns out that one of their friends is a return missionary that just got back from Bolivia and is from our ward here so we set up a day to visit them. We only got to teach the daughter that has 18 years but we invited her to be baptized and she accepted and came to church this sunday and like it a lot!  Hopefully we will be able to talk with the rest of the family this week. It helps a lot that the return missionary always comes with us to help us out. 

The familia Kallus should have their papers in order so that they can get a turn to get married (sacar un turno?? i dont remember how to say that). so as soon as they get married they will also be able to get baptized. They are so awesome! it doesnt matter when we call them but if we call them they make time for us to visit them.

I´m loving working with my new companion Elder Deyoung. Hes super cool. Its my first time having an American comp in a long time, actually since i started the mission. Its pretty fun. 

Spirtitual thought for the week :

I believe that as we deepen our understanding of the Savior, we will have an increased desire to live joyfully and a conviction that joy is possible. Consequently, we will have a greater ability to go about each day with more enthusiasm for life and for keeping the commandments of God, even in challenging circumstances.
