got no idea for this one

Heeeeeello erybody, how ya doin? This week was alright, but enough small talk, let's just get into it.

We didn't get to talk with our investigator Keila this week because she was working a ton, but we're working on that right now. The week was kind of rough, a bit of the opposite of last week, but that's alright, we're learning a lot of humility and how to rely on the Lord right now.

One day when all of our plans fell through within an hour, we decided to tract this big hill/mount we'd never been to, and it was fun! There were only a couple people that actually gave us the light of day, but it was really pretty and had an awesome view at the top. We've decided to name it cheto hill, because everybody that lives on it has a loooooot of money.

On Wednesday we had an amazing tramission from Elder Bednar for all the missionaries in the South America South area, and it was spectacular. He is such an inspired man, there is no doubt in my mind that he is an apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. He let the missionaries in Buenos Aires ask questions and he talked about a lot of different things, but the thing that stuck with me was that he said to an Elder that asked how we could hasten the work in Argentina that the missionaries doesn't hasten the work, the Lord does. We can't change His will, and just make things happen. Yes we can work miracles if we're following what he wants to be done, but that also doesn't mean it's completely our fault if we're trying and working hard and not having good results. That stuck with me, it's something I'm working on applying right now.

The week was hard, but last night we were talking with a lot that used to be Jehovah's Witness, and she asked how we knew that Joseph Smith had his vision, that God and Jesus Christ really appeared to him, and it wasn't just an illusion from Satan or fake. I was able to testify directly to her of the testimony that I have received through my personal study and prayer, that he had his vision, and that he was able to restore that same church of Jesus Christ through the power of the Priesthood and everything. After a hard week of not talking to a lot of people, it was a good way to end the week.

But anyway, everything's fine, I'm loving it here! I love you all and hope you're doing well!
