Well how is everyone?
Well we had a great 1st week to the transfer this past week. The most successful since arriving here in Reconquista. I am excited to work with Elder Oliva(my new comp) from Cordaba because he is a hard worker. Super focused, and because of this, we were able to really see some progress this week. Alejandra and Carlos(50years old) are a couple that we have been visiting with, where Alejandra is an inactive member and Carlos is her unofficial spouse of 4 years. Well we had 2 really solid lessons this week with them. We got put into contact with them about a month ago because they were going through a really tough time economically. This week they told us in our lesson that things were starting to improve, but when we returned , they were super frustrated and worried and overwhelmed because they were just spent physically and mentally with all the economic worries and problems. Well, Thursdays lesson was super spiritual and in the end Carlos offered his first prayer outloud. At the end they both were in tears and the spirit was felt so strong. Well the next day() Carlos got offered a full time job with a construction company and they both came to church , Carlos for the first time and Alejandra for the first time in 25 years. They stayed for all three hours and were also able to meet with the branch president(pres Borda).
Also , we had Luciana and Eugenio attend church. That is another cool story. We just started teaching them 10 days ago. we did some service in their house where we hauled dirt in wheelbarrows into the back yard. They don't have a phone but we invited them to go to church then . Well, fast forward to , we were getting ready for church and at there was a knock at the door. I thought it was Brother Patroli( school teacher) because he sometimes stops by mornings to grab our church key to open the church. But I opened the door and it was Luciana and Eugenio on their moto. It was the first time in my mission that an investigator came to our house to pick US up for church haha. So we had those 4 people in church and we are excited to continue teaching them this week. We still have to figure out if they are married to other people and see what word of wisdom problems they have before we can think about putting a baptismal date with them. So we are there with our investigators.

Nothing to exciting happened this week. I attached a picture of what looks like the sky, but if you look closely you will see a bunch of black dots. Well those black dots are spiders, we were walking and we came across a massive spider web with a bunch of evil spiders. Kinda nasty.

The branch here is also going to head over to Puerto thisfor a fishing activity. We are 15 minutes from the paranà river which is a pretty large river that seperates the provencies Santa Fe and Corrientes. So I am looking forward to that. Then here , Lucas( recent convert) is going to take us to the air force base.... it will be SUPER sweet to get into and see an Argentina military base. Let Trump know that if he needs any details on Argentina military strategies, he can let me know. But thats it from me. I hope you enjoy your week and remember to study the scriptures, say your prayers, and live after the manner of happiness. Love ya!!
