I got to interview this lovely lady for her baptism. Mission President had interviewed her before and knew who she was. He just happened to be at the same church building that night.
FHE game night with some Young Single Adults
Andrea and Alyssa were studying at BYU and participated in an abroad program where they came down to Buenos Aires and taught self reliance classes. They helped us out a lot with missionary work.
Macarena and Esteban
Macarena was an investigator. She had so many questions and had such a great desire to do what was right. Elder Flemming and I were the first to start teaching her and (thanks to technology) I was able to learn from her that she did get baptized and she thanked me for being the one to first start the relationship between her and the missionaries. She told me that even though I wasn't present in her baptism, that I played a great role in her teaching and she thanked me for serving.
Esteban Torrico shortly after served in the Chile Antofagasta mission
Hermano Portillo. I told him that I would only wear a River Jersey when he gave me one. On my last weekend he did give me one. It is an older one and kinda small. But I am still grateful for it!
Esteban and Justin
This was my last Saturday night in Argentina. Us missionaries had a rule that we couldnt drink Mate. I figured, it was my last weekend, what could be the harm? so I had a couple drinks of mate. it tasted pretty good (with all the added sugar). but by being disobedient came the consequences. The next day, Sunday, All day I had an upset stomach and we spent a good amount of the day traveling and in a big Going Away meeting. I paid the price that day.
Investigator that got baptized later, after I had gotten home. He came straight from Peru and was dating one of the sisters in the ward.
