Week 39 - Cordoba (La Madrid), Argentina

Hey Everyone!!!!

Wow, it´s Monday already?? This week FLEW by! We had so much success this week and I still can´t believe it! We opened the area just a week and a half ago and we already have too many investigators to handle! I love it!

So this week was completely full of miracles! I saw the hand of the Lord helping us in literally in everything we did. Here in La Madrid the members are absolutely amazing! This week we got over 20 references and we set a mission record with 19 lessons with members present! The most lessons with members that I have had in a week before this one was 4! The members here are so willing to help us in the work and it makes the biggest difference as a missionary!

The best experience that I had this week was a Family Home Evening with a family that invited TEN investigators and two families. Elder Manzanete and I were pretty nervous giving a lesson in front of 20+ people, but it went pretty well. We did a really cool object lesson and invited everyone to be baptized and to go to church - some said no and some said yes, but overall it was a huge success! It´s hard to give strong commitments with a lot of people in a lesson though! This FHE was a huge growing experience for me and it helped me to trust in the Lord in order to bring in the Spirit with so many people present! This week was full of Family Home Evenings with non-members and it made it so much easier to teach investigators with members there!

This week we found 28 new people to teach and it´s tough because we don´t have enough time to visit them all so we are trying to go on splits with all the youth to teach them all. It´s definitely a good problem to have though! We found an awesome Bolivian family of 6 (4 that can be baptized) and we think that they could get in the water pretty soon so we are way excited about them! There are just so many people that we are excited to teach and we have so much fire right now!!! The only problem is that a lot of our investigators aren´t married so that´s gonna be tough, but it´s always been one of my goals to marry someone on the mission!

Basically this week was the bomb because the members here are unbelievable, unlike anything I´ve seen before! And we know that God blessed us with a ton of success this week because of our obedience - obedience really is the key to missionary work!!!

I love the church soooooo much and I´m so lucky that I get to share it with the people here in Cordoba! Thanks so much for the prayers and support! And I hope you all think about people you know who aren´t members and share the gospel with them! I love you all! Have a great week!
