This week was straight sun...
So this week was pretty interesting and it starts with Monday. So at night we were going back to the apartment from a lesson and in the middle of the road there was water so we went onto the sidewalk to cross, but in Argentina there is a type of gutter or small canal (called a zanja) between the street and sidewalk and it is usually filled with water and the water sits there for years and years because it has no where to go. So the zanja was covered with a green moss but at night it looks like part of the road so when my comp went to cross the street, he stepped right into the zanja up to his knee. Ha ha ha. I laughed for like ten minutes straight. He only got his left leg wet and the bottom of his pant leg and shoe and in his shoe was black sludge that reeked. Ha ha ha.
Then on Tuesday we had a little time to knock doors before lunch and so the first door we knocked we talked to two teenagers and they let us in! They recently moved here with there family from a province up north called Misiones. That day we gave them a Book of Mormon and on Thursday we taught them and their family about the Restoration and they are interested. Then on Wednesday we had a zone conference in which president decided to show us the movie: Meet the Mormons. They are expecting it to come to theaters here in South America so he wanted us to watch it so we could talk about it with our investigators when it comes out. It was such a great movie and I love how it focuses a lot on the family and shows great examples of how the mother and father can work together to balance work, the family, and Church in order to achieve the true success of the family: Happiness.
Something else cool is that a member family brought their friend to church on Sunday so we started to teach him. He recently moved here in Marcos Paz from the Capital and he grew up in the Catholic church and was super active. He is a nice guy and is very accepting to us. Also a less active family we have been working with came to church so they are starting to progress too.
The work is moving along and we are working hard. We are looking forward to another great week and full of more miracles. Also my comp has been telling a few members that Wednesday is my birthday so we are going to have to eat A LOT of cake. Great.... ha ha ha!
I know this church it true and that the Lord leads and guides us to a better life.
Have a great week!
