Sept 1, 2014 Elder Gabriaguez and Tortuguitas

That sucks about the virus. Yeah the computers in this area suck. It’s a very poor area... well it’s a really rich area and so the majority of the people either have their own stuff or there have cars to go some where else. So like the stores and stuff here is like suck. And it’s been hard to send my stuff in this area. But yeah.

My comp is Elder Gabriaguez from Paraguay. He’s been in the mission 10 months. He actually got here in Argentina like 2 days before me! He was baptized 2 years ago. And he is really cool! He wears glasses. And yeah. Haha!

Well I’ve been here in Tortuguitas for a week now and it’s been interesting. Things work very different here than in other areas! Here is very rich and so the houses are big. The area is big. And a lot of people have cars so there isn’t a lot of buses, so we walk a lot. And the people work a lot so there isn’t a lot of people in the streets to talk to. And the members are the same. A lot of them don’t have time to come out with us or help us out which stinks but we are going to work with them and baptize people that can help us, haha! =P but things are going good! I feel weird being senior comp. I can definitely feel the responsibility. It’s different. I used my study time this morning to put some good goals down and to think of different ways that we can work!

Right now we are working with a family. 2 brothers that have go that need to get married! They are so ready they just need a little push to get them there! We are trying to get them married this month and baptized, On Friday they went to the Temple with the Ward and they showed them around and they really liked it and they like the fact that the family can be together forever! I like helping them! And then we almost had a baptism yesterday. An Old Investigator sent us a message and we stopped by. They had stopped working with her because she didn’t want to give up smoking. Well, she thought about it and has started giving up smoking on her own. She now reads everyday and really has a desire to change her life! But she had a legal problem and had to meet with one of the leaders of the mission. A married couple. And he interviewed her. Mission President has to think about it and talk with his leaders and then she will be able to get baptized. And she hasn’t fully given up smoking. So we are helping her with that! Haha! She told us that she fasted to help her stop smoking to be able to be baptized! So AWESOME! We have some other people we are working on but basically we need to find new families to bring to the church!

Now with my old investigators. Gustavo (the dad of Aryton) got baptized and now the brother and the mom and the cousin and other parts of the family are getting ready to be baptized! I told my comp that I wanted a picture so when it comes ill send that!

Love you all and well be talking next week!
