Tender Mercies

Another week gone! 

This week was a lot of fun! First off we worked last Tuesday in the colony after the district meeting. Elder Urquidi and I have been making an effort to try and work more there because they average 8 people in church and it is the same family. So we left and visited the colony and visited with a few inactive members of the colony. I mentioned a long time ago but the colony doesn't speak spanish natively. Their native tongue is called "Pilaga". And while they are suppose to learn spanish... some of them only learn the basics. So the only active member from the colony came with us on these visits and translated for us so we could communicate effectively to them. Then Wednesday and Thursday we enjoyed another trip to Resistencia. We had a meeting with all the Zone Leaders in the mission with a guy from Buenos Aires who is supplying the mission with new water filters. So we had to learn how to set them up and pick up filters for our zones. On our trip back the bus played a movie!! They played Allegiant... it was a true tender mercy hahaha. We got back to Ibarreta at 1:30am Friday morning. Then on Friday we had a great day. With all our travels and work in the colony we weren’t able to work in our area much. So we had a lot to do. We ended up having 7 lessons friday with a lot of investigators. We have an investigator who is part of a part-member family. His name is Raul and is 30 years old. He is a little special so his ability to learn is kinda slow. But we have him set to be baptized this Saturday. We had a lesson with Cristian and taught about the power of prayer. He is humble and is reading a lot in the book of mormon. Then we had a lesson with the Cano Family. They are doing awesome. I am so excited for them. They also went to church yesterday and loved it. Fabiana (the mom) accepted a baptism date for the 20th of May as well as the whole family. The dad (Celedonio) is a little apprehensive about it but says he has noticed that his family is more united and happier since they started reading the BoM and doing family prayer every night. But there is a possible problem cause they are not married and he might be married to another woman.... so that would complicate things.... but we will continue teaching and visiting them this week. But that was basically the week for me. We saw many miracles this week with our investigators and with this area of Ibarreta.

But that was basically the week. I only took pictures on the bus and in the terminal. Everyone sounds good. We will be traveling to Formosa as a zone Wednesday for a multizone conference with president and sister Franco. So that will be fun. I hope you all have a great week. 

Nos vemos.
