Many Changes

Hey howdy hey everybody, how's everything going?
Everything's great here, this week was really long, but really good, so I'll get into it.

We found a new family this week that was really willing to listen to us. We had a really powerful lesson with them last night, and we just them walking to the ciber, and they are great. Super loving and really interested, so we're excited about that. We also found some other new investigators this week, so it looks like things will be picking up around here.

We had a zone conference on Thursday, and things are changing a ton. There was a really long MLC (really big conference with the president, assistants, zone leaders and hermana leaders) this week that has put some new things into place which are gonna change this entire mission. I'm super excited to be part of it, but it's gonna require a lot more effort on my part to fulfill wth the new demands digamos. But President's a super inspired man, and he's definitely helping us to reach the standard of missionary that he was on his mission. If I haven't said it before, there's a talk that speaks about President when he was a missonary, and basically long story short, he was super dedicated and had amazing results. For example, he was sent to whitewash an area that hadn't had a baptism in like a year and a half, and he and his companion baptized 18 people in three and a half weeks. So he definitely has some things that are gonna help us improve.

We got to do a lot of service this week which was great. Service is always awesome because it's something different than the everyday, and you always feel great about it. It's been fun to go around doing service, but it's made me reaaaaally tired haha.

Our investigator Olivio is progressing very nicely. We did a church tour with him on Thursday and he loved it all and was excited to come to church, but he texted us Saturday and said he was in Neuquén for the weekend and wouldn't be able to come, so that kind of bummed us out, but we're seeing him tonight, so everything should work out great there. He's pretty interested, we're hoping to see him baptized by the end of the month!

Elder McNeil and Elder Pineda have basically found a new pension, so they'll be moving out soon, so we've been enjoying our time together as much as we can. Elder Sorenson also got an american football this week from his parents so we've been playing with that lately, and it's been really fun.

I love you all so much and hope you have a great week!
