First off, you know when you are in Argentina in the summer when a lady who is 70 years old comes out of a house that you clapped and is wearing a bikini. Grossest thing I have ever seen in my life I think. This week was a little bit better than last. Our numbers weren´t great, but that just means our numbers will be great this week! It´s still kinda rough with Elder Flores. I can´t even describe how many times he puts his foot in his mouth. I´m praying really hard for the gift of charity towards him, and it´s coming little by little. Just a backround of this week and we will start with Fabian.
We taught him a great lesson this week about keeping the sabbath day holy and he said he would keep it. We tried to teach him throughout the week and things happened on our side and we weren´t able to teach him after that lesson. It was kind of our fault, we did try to contact him as best as we could, but agency happens and people do stuff. Turns out that actually got a job at "MacDonald´s" (They can´t say their mc´s) And we don´t know what his hours are at the moment. We plan to go over this week to see what we can do in order for him to be baptized on the 8 of Februrary still. Because he got the job at McDonald´s he wasn´t able to come to church. Anyways we are still working on that.
Gabriel and Marcela:
I found out this week that Marcela has NOT been reading. She hasn´t read since we gave the family Alma 22 to read which was like 6 weeks ago. I was pretty bummed by that. But it´s all good because they will progress this week. I have faith. That´s all that we did with them this week.
I finished Alma this week! Gotta tell ya, the war is really intense. I just love it! Also, I gave a talk in church this week! It was a little rough, but i think people got the message. I talked about being an example and opening our mouth to spread the Gospel. Basically just my farewell talk. i did some pauses so that people can feel the Spirit, when actually, I was thinking of the word to say. Remember that this gospel is true and that Joseph Smith was a prophet! And that Thomas S. Monson and his counselors and the Quorum of the 12 apostles are prophets, seers and revelators. Les quiero mucho!
