Welp, these past three weeks have flown by! I hadn't realized that I have not written all these weeks until I was informed that people miss my emails... I wasn't sure anybody read them but I'll try to be more consistent.
The past three weeks have been filled with missionary work and training a new missionary. For anybody that has done that, you know it can be a rollercoaster. Miracles and moments of success, and lows with all the weight on you to keep it going. I have loved every minute of it, and trust me, I know it is teaching me invaluable life lessons.
This month we are focusing on helping a family of three get baptized. A mother named Fanny with her two kids Florencia (16) and Maxi (14). The two kids are albinos, so that's cool! Fanny is incredible, she has read the Book of Mormon every day for the past week and came to church on Sunday. She fit right into the Relief Society and has several friends. Now we just need to help bring about the conversion process in their lives. Only one way to do that.
For all those who told me the mission flies by, I believed you. Now that I have more than a year in Argentina I really believe you. It makes me scared how fast it is going. I love it so much. I love being a missionary and I love the environment of spiritual growth it provides. Such a special time.
Note to all those thinking about serving a mission...
The prophet Joseph Smith said that after all is said and done, missionary work is the most important work on the face of the earth. It forces you to change and grow, it brings out the best in you. If you desire to end up where God needs and wants you, serving a mission is the right choice. I testify of that. I know it to be true.
With much love and until next week
