Another rato in San Martín

Well hello there everybody, how is it treating you right now? I hope you guys are doing great.

This week was amazing! First things first, it's transfers, and Elder Nevins and I will be staying together! Elder Bush and Elder Magaña as well are staying, but both Hermanas are leaving and an Elder I've never met will be training another newbie in their area, so that will be exciting!

All in all, this week was amazing. Like I said, last week was a little rough, but this week was exactly the opposite. It felt like all of the effort we've put in since we got here finally paid off, and we were able to find a ton of new people to teach, and it's all very exciting! I've come to learn that The Lord strengthens us in our time of trial always, just like the Sons of Mosiah when they were about to leave because they had been so rejected and hated, but the lord came to them and told them to go back, the Lord always helps us, we just have to turn to Him.

One of the coolest experiences we had was finding a guy named Matías. We were walking through our area, and we say him shoveling dirt, and he kind of looked at us a ot, so we went up and asked if he needed help. He said "de arriba" (from above). It took me a minute to actually understand what he was trying to say, but when I did, we started talking about the Restoration and accepted everything, even a baptismal date! Unfortunately he didn't come to church, he doesn't have a phone, and lives in a campground where he hasn't been when we've gone by so far, but we'll get him.

We also went to Junin just outside of San Marting for pday last week and did a really cool walk wit a bunch of statues of Christ. It was done by a bunch of Argentine indians, and was actually kind of really weird, but it was awesome.

To be honest I don't remember much because it went by suuuuuper fast, but I'm super excited to keep working here and see the fruits of what's been happening! I love you all so much, hope you have a great week!
