Belén se bautiza

Never know what to put here so

This week was really good. Super crazy because of consejo, but good. Don´t remember most of it and I'm reaaaallly tired, but it was good.

On Thursday, we had consejo (I think that's MLC in English) with all the zone leaders and everybody in Neuquén. Which means naother 6 hour bus ride in the middle of the night to Neuquén, a meeting all day, and then waiting until midnight to take another 6 hour bus back to Bariloche. So that was great. It was a really good consejo though, we talked a lot about focuesing on charity and developing love for our investigators, for missionaries, and for our companions. I liked it a lot, and there was a lot of good stuff we're going to be applying here en Bariloche. And my companion served in Neuquén about 6 months ago, and so he got in contact with one of his old investigators that was his neighbor, and we had some choripan (sausagebread, look it up the picture will describe it better than I can) with him. It was super good and fun. But we are still very tired from the trip.

The rest of the week we couldn't really find a lot of our investigators home, and we were gone for a while, so basically it was kind of rough in terms of numbers, but we did the zone training yesterday and it went really well, everybody's excited for the new plan we have in the mission.

We did have a really awesome experience, or mejor dicho- she had an amazing experience that she shared with us, last night. She's doing great as always, accepting everything, reading a ton, she even was talking to her mom about what she had been learning, and her mom was talking about she was going through a rough time, and Belén said, well it's because you're not praying right, here I'll teach you how to do it correctly. And then she explained her how to pray, and sent her a talk by Thomas S. Monson. She's a better missionary than us, and she's not even baptized! But anyways, last night we were talking, and she said she wanted to tell us about something that happened. And so she starts telling us that Pablo (the boyfriend) was showing her some mormon messages, and the last thing they watched was the bible video of Jesus talking to Nicodemus about why he needed to be baptized. He leaves to his house, and she stayed up a little longer and decided to start reading the bible. She opens up to a random page, and it just so happens to be the story of Nicodemus with Jesus, and she starts reading it without even realizing it was the same story. So she had started thinking about that and everything. Reads a little of the Book of Mormon, and then kneels down to pray. Near the end of her prayer, she starts asking for continued understanding in the things she's learning and to know what she should do, and she told us that as she was closing the prayer, she just felt a heat all over her body, and that it scared her, but she also felt good and happy. The next day she told Pable about it, and he being the capo return missionary that he is, read her from DyC 9:8 and explained to her it was an answer, a testimony of the truth. She was so excited and you could just tell that she had been convinced of the truthfulness of the gospel. She's super excited to get baptized this week! (If all works out with her work schedule) We're super happy too.

Basically, that's about all that's happened this week. Love you all soo much!!
