3 wards

Hello family! How is everybody doing? We had a great week here in Plottier, we're seeing a lot of great things, and are excited for the next couple weeks!

This week we worked super hard with the investigators that we already have and looked for a lot of new ones, and we saw miracles. Right now, we have 3 baptismal dates for the 24th of this month! The first one is Claudia Muñoz, who lives in the other ward in Plottier, but they're aren't missionaries in her ward for now, so we're teaching her! She's great. She has a couple doubts about modern-day prophets(mostly just wy all of them are from the US) and tithing, but she said she would pray about that and get it taken care of. The most important think is that she wants to get baptized! The thing she loves more than anything is being able to be sealed to her family for time and all eternity, that's something she really wants to do, so we're focusing on that.

The second baptismal date is Louisa, who's the grandma of a recent convert family Viedma. She showed up to our Family Home Evening we had scheduled with them, and she loved it! We invited her to be baptized, and she accepted. She came to church yesterday as well to see her grandson give his first talk in sacrament meeting! It was a great experience.

The last one is a man named Juan Carlos, who is the guy that I told you about who lives in the other ward that doesn't have missionaries because it's a dangerous area (hence the subject title, working in three different wards for the first time in Argentina). He is an amazing man. His neighbor that was slightly less-active invited him to church in October, and he went, and loved it! Since then he's gone almost every week. He's about 60 years-old, and wnats to get baptized, but wants to do it right. He was a little worried about it going to fast because he'd never met missionaries before, but we explained that he's already had a lot of preparation going to church so many times, and he said he's going to pray about getting baptized next weekend! We're going to have a white Christmas here in Plottier!

We also did exchanges with the assistants this week, which was super fun. I went with Elder LeBaron, who's a really great guy and we had a good time. Taught a lot and had fun. They have a really nice apartment in downtown Neuquén, so it was fun to spend a night there.

Other than that, it's been a pretty normal week! Everything's going great! I love you all!!!
