San Barapedro, the land of the outcasts

Greetings everyone! 

It's a big bright beautiful world here in Baradero! A hot world. Holy cats I seriously about died on Friday. And then again on Saturday. It was hot. But I drank a lot of water so don't get too scared Mom! I haven't fainted yet! haha

God is good. He is seriously blessing us so much. Pretty much our efforts don't do anything. But God sees us and is like ''aww these poor elders'' and then throws us UN MONTONAZO of blessings. He sees our efforts! This week like ALL of our plans fell through. Buuuut do you guys remember the miracle family that went to church a few weeks ago with Hno Salas who is a temple worker? yeah well POR FIN we had a lesson with the parents, and they accepted a baptismal date!! Wooot. and we are also working with a man who is inactive and his wife who isn't a member, and they are also progressing and are amazing and just have to get married and go to church, and then she can get baptized as well! 

Also, we had transfers last week. I killed my companion (again) and am training (again)! I am also district leader! We affectionately call ourselves the outcasts because our district is so far away from the rest of the mission, they just stuck us and San Pedro together and called it good. so yeah. But San Barapedro is great and Elder Jensen and I are super great friends from the Zona Chacabuco days and are ready to call our area to repentance with our bellotas.  =)

My companion is Elder Mussin, from el Talar. He is waiting for his visa to come so he can leave to go to California. El Talar is actually a part of our mission, so until the visa comes, he's stuck with us. He already has one transfer here in the mission so I am just finishing up his training, but he pretty much knows how to do everything already, so we just power through everything and try to put up with the heat. 

I hope you are all enjoying the new year and making good goals! But I hope you biggest goal is to be a better follower of Jesus Christ. Because he knows what's best for you! So don't be scared to follow Him and do what He says!

See you all soon enough!
