Chicas de cascos!!! (August 8, 2014)

(Translation:"Girls with helmets!!!") 
so what to say this week.
i get why emails get shorter as missionaries have more time in the mission...haha but lets see what happened this week,
so we havent been able to see a couple of our inv. for a couple of weeks which is really sad but we did have a really good week. hma carlson and i broke the ice this week and are teaching in such unity, we just needed to trust eachother in the lessons more so weve been teaching much better and much more! what a blessing. :)
we have this one inv. named vetiana. she is hilarious and fun and has strong faith in god. but she is catholic, as is argentina, but we will still met with her for a few more times. everytime we go over she has a new friend so we meet alot of people haha well on friday we had a lesson and her daughter, friend, and her friends daughter was there. we taught a breif lessoin on how god is our loving heavenly father and how he has called profets. it was well received but after, we invited them to come to classes of english that we teach every friday, and they came! the daughters that is! so i think we will see them again and hope that well be able to teach them! the older one is 13 and is really receptive to the things we teach and the other one is 11 and so sweet! hahahmm
of dad, this is for you, we met a couple named adriana and marcelo. they are about 50 and so fun and energetic. they are kinda catholic but are willing to learn and change with faith :) well we were talking to them and getting to know them and come to find out that she is super intersted in family history and wants to learn how to use family search...and this is the moment that i regret not learning it at home haha but we will figure it out with her and yeah! her daughter is 25 and is studying to be an english teacher so we had a lesson with her in english also on friday! we will meet with her every week to help her with english and teach her the lessons hahaha her mom also is a baker and they want to have us for dinner and make tartas and churros for us!! haha

hmm una mas, we had a member lesson with a reference from the member yesterday. her name is monica, shes 35 and had a really bad accident and is bed ridden for 3 months, she has 5 kids and is single, well we met with her yesterday and it was a really powerful lesson. she is really receptive and seems like she is looking for more in her life. we talked about how much god loves and helps us with everything, at the end we sang "sweet hour of prayer". the spirit was really strong so we will see what happens with her, please pray that she will get better though por favor.
so to wrap up this week, we found a few cool new investigators and had really awesome lessons as a companionship.- 
funny! we were going door to door and found a j.w. she had been preaching for 16 years and just stopped because she is really old. well part of their rules is that they dont accept pictures of christ and they cant accept gifts. idk why....well we talked about the religion a little and how when we die we will have perfect bodies resurected, and it was cool, well we gave her a pass along card of jesus christ and we even gave her a BOOK OF MORMON. she will probably read it but right after that we walked across the street, knocked on the door and the guy who answered looked at us and not interested, and then he double looked and said oh wait....what who are you? so we introduced oursleves. he apologized for being rude and said i just thought you were testigos...but youre not so ill listen...hahahaha oh and last night, so we have these neighbors who are catholic and are soooo sweet. they always tell us if we need anything, we have another family with them, so last night we needed flour for cookies and we went over there to ask for some, well they invited us in and ended up feeding us dinner and gave us milanesa a la pizza, and puree de papa! so wonderful, and they gave us a whole thing of flour and chocolte! jaja so -

pday last week!
this week will be alot more simple than last week, haha so today i decided i wanted to start personal progress again. it gives me something really productive to better my studies haha and it is an amazing program and ill do the 10 hour projects when i get home and get another medallion!! haha so i started with my favorite value, individual worth. really simply, we are all sons and daughters of god, and like our parents on this earth god loves us so much and we mean so much to him, each and every one of us. d y c 18:10. if ever we feel alone or that we dont mean very much to him, shut that idea out of your mind because he never forgets about us, he is always there and we just need to invite him into our lives. (the picture of christ at the door with no handle) well its a simple message but it means everything. and we have everything, the earth, our family and friends, and everything, because HE LOVES US. i really felt his love this week especially in my studies and i know that we can feel so close to him when we read the book of mormon, the words of the profets and our patriarchial blessing. we are of infinite worth to him. never forget that.

well!!!!!!! that is my week. i love you all so much and thank you for all that you do for me and my family. i feel the love!!!!!!! shoutout to grandma nydia for being a family history beast! i hope we can all follow her example and help in the work that we are here on earth in this day to do! muah!!
