semana buena

Heeeeelllooooo there evrybody, how are ye fairing this fine day?

Everything is just great here! This week went by fairly quick, and to be honest we didn't get in to as many houses as we would have liked, but it still was a really good week.

The best part of the week was that this menos activo/part-member family came to church yesterday! It was so awesome. The husband is the brother of one of the counselors in the bishopric, and his brother was soooo happy to see him there with his family. The Hermano also really seemed to be happy to be back in the church. The truth is he has done a lot of things in the church, he was even a Bishop. But some things happened, I still don't understand or know all of it, but now his señora and her son are listening, and they were all so happy to be there, it was great.

On Saturday we put on an Easter Activity, and it was fantastic! We did an easter egg hunt, played some games, and then shared the new Easter video and the Bishop spoke a little. It was great! We actually had quite a few people show up, including some other investigators and a less-active family that's been coming more and more to church. We had a lot of fun and it turned out really well, so that was great.

We also did intercambios (exchanges) with Elder Magaña and Elder Bush which was fun. Elder Magaña and I went out together and had a great time. He's a great friend and we get along really well, so we enjoyed ourself. He taught me a lot about just always being happy, because he's always happy and uplifiting and smiling and searching for ways to help.

The rest of the wek was pretty normal, we weren't able to meet with Keila unfortunately. It was frustrating because we set up a time and went by and nobody answered, and when we tried again an hour and a half later, she said, "I was here waiting for you guys at 5:30, why didn't you come by?" And so we somehow missed each other in the one second she went outside for something. I've been studying a lot for her and feel like I've received a lot of revelation on how to get to baptism quickly, and so I really just wanna get in there and throw it down, but looks like we'll have to wait some more.

Apparently we're also going to Bariloche again tomorrow for another conference with President, and on thursday my comp has to do immigration stuff in Neuquén, so I don't really know what I'll be doing or what will happen this week, but I guess we'll just hope for the best.

I love you all, thank you so much for your support!
