P-day number 70 here in Argentina,
Time is passing fast... it feels really weird to say that. That leaves me 30 more p-days.
This week was a lot of fun. Today is a holiday in Argentina, i think it is ¨Race Day¨ not too sure... so we are spending the day with all the members here in the church. They made ¨rice stew¨ and we played ¨Heads Up¨ the phone application game. And now they are getting ready to play soccer, so I am writing right now.

The YSA Drama continues. With all the immaturity and the contention that is going on, the branch president had to do something. So he split the YSA here in Reconquista into 2 groups. So the 1st Branch and the 2nd branch are now in charge of their own YSA groups and activities. We will see what happens with that.
Last night we were able to have a Family home evening with the 1st counciler’s family and a family that has been investigating for about 5 months now, Mercedes and Fabian Duarte. They are ready to be baptized.... but need to get married(like always). But they have been passing through a hard time economically and even spent a whole week without Gas because they couldnt afford gas for their kitchen. But recently, Fabian has been working with the ¨Friar factory¨ which is a factory for meat.... they usually process on average 900 cows a day, and is where the 1st councilor works. For the FHE, I shared the conversion story of dad, that he sent me in my first transfer in argentina, and focused on the blessings that came with his decision to get baptized. It was an edifying FHE and mercedes and fabian are here today for the activity. Hopefully we can set some goals with them to get married and baptised this week. We also had a lesson with Jolanda, who is the inactive member that lost her 18 month year old 8 weeks ago. We had a lesson with her. She had told her kids that she was sick so that they would go outside and play, but when we stopped by, she told us that she says that when she is depressed and she doesnt want her kids seeing her cry. We talked about many things, but it really is a sad situation. It is very difficult for her to accept her reality and move on. We read some photocopies from the teachings of the prophet joseph smith that talked about little kids who pass away and talked about how she can overcome her depression and sadness. But it honestly depends on her. We talked about setting goals so that she isnt by herself, and idle. So we are still visiting her and helping her out.

Last week, I BOUGHT A WAFFLE IRON!! It was a miracle that we got it approved because it cost 700 pesos, but the elder in the office approved it. So now we have a waffle iron in the zone. We use it for district meetings and correlation meetings.
But that was my week. Have a great week!! Love!
