My friends and family,I absolutely loved this week. It was full of adventure, crazy Argentine stuff, and exchanges. This week I got the chance to do two intercambios (exchanges) with the Elders in Solano. I learned a lot from both of the Elders I was with. First off, Elder Baipas came with me to El Parque. We worked hard and taught a really cool blind lady, named Marcela.
After that night, I went to Solano and left with Elder Gonzales from Alaska. We had a lot of fun, saw a gigantic rat (it was the size of a fire extinguisher!), and enjoyed hanging out in the ghetto part of Solano
after the sun went down. We didn't get robbed or anything, we had a really good lesson with a new investigator, and I enjoyed getting to know Elder Gonzales.
On Wednesday, I went to Florencio Varela for interviews with President Nunez. I learned a lot from him and felt the Spirit there strongly as he shared with me. He definitely is a man that gives his all to God.
For the rest of the week, Elder Knuth and I worked! We searched and searched, trying to find old investigators while looking for more new people that wanted to listen. We found some new people. Heavenly Father always came through as we set high goals and went to work!
My thought for you all is on goals. I know I have mentioned that a few times in my letters home. But seriously, we need goals in life! Goals are how we exercise faith. If we want our faith in God to grow, we need to set goals that we cannot reach on our own. We need to set goals that we will need God's help to complete. I promise you that if you set goals in your life, and pray for God's help, that you will get great results in life. You may not always reach the goals, but you will do a lot more than you would have done by yourself. I love you all! I pray for you all.
Hurrah for Israel!
