We had a pretty good week!

Not too much to report, but a couple very exciting things did happen.

First of all, our third companion Elder Salgado, finished his mission and went home this week. It was a good week, we were able to get a lot done, and we learned a lot. It's always interesting to her the counsels of missionaries that are about to go home, and learn from them Elder Salgado was a good friend that had a lot of success in his mission, I'm thankful for the short time I was able to work with him.

On Friday, we had a conference with president with the other zone in Neuquén, and it was really nice. We talked more about commitment, inviting perople to come to church, and how we can continue speaking with everyone and improving our abilities to do the such. We had a good time, and it was nice to seem some familiar faces.

Other than that, the biggest report of the week is that we found an amazing new investigador that fell our of the sky. We got a text message during the week with a referral of an investigator that is the sister of a member who lives in Mendoza, Argentina. We passed by to teach her, and she is super prepared. She has already gone to church a bunch of times with her sister in Mendoza, and the ward over there even gave her a Book of Mormon and a copy of the Gospel Principles manual. She had already read some of it, and was super excited to see us. She said that she had been wondering if one day we were going to show up at her house. We taught the first lesson to her and a couple of her family members that were there, and they loved it. She was super excited, and accepted a baptismal date for the 28th of this month! We went by again and taught about the Plan of Salbation, and she told us that a couple years ago she lost her husband,and had really been missing him. Being able to teach her and give her the hope of being able to see her husband again after this life was a fantastic experience, one of those things that really make you treasure the mission. She was going to come to church, and we're not actually ery sure why she didn't come, we haven't been able to communicate with her, but she's super ready and excited.

Other than that, a pretty normal week out here in the fields and farms of Southern Argentina. Love you all, have a great week!
