This week has been crazy, full of changes happy and sad. But ya, i love change. It´s always exciting and it helps us to progress! So check it…
Cambios en el barrio – So they are changing the Ward limits this week and we went to a special conference in the stake. They are changing the limits of Parque Capital, La Madrid, Alto Alberdi, 20 de Junio, AND Rosedal! It´s pretty crazy stuff. We´re losing 25 members and getting 25 new members. It´s pretty crazy because we lost a ton of our leaders, but we´re excited to see the changes that will happen this next week. We also got a few investigators that have baptism dates. They are this cute family with the Mom and two kids. Her youngest daughter Anita, who is 10, has already gone for a long time. Now her mom and 18 year old brother are starting to go too. We´re excited to get to know them better and help them prepare for their baptism.
Convenio – So we decided to make this covenant with God this week. We read a talk by this Mission president that talked about miracles in the misión when we make a covenant with God. It´s pretty intense stuff but we wanted to make a deal. We promised all of our faith, obedience, and diligence to get four baptisms in this month of March. We made a specific promise that we would teach a certain number of lessons every day and bring a new person to church every week, if we could save jsut 4 people. We talked to our misión president about it and he´s excited for you. We got special permission to do everything possible to get our goals. We have seen such a ton of miracles! One day we put a goal to have lesson with member, but our appointment failed us. So we didn´t have a member nor appointment. We didn´t know what to do, and then we found our member friend Diego in the street, who gave us a reference to pass by in that very momento. I love trusting in the will of the Lord and seeing the miracles! We´re way excited for this convenant and seeing what happens.
Last Zone Conference – Last Friday i had my very last Zone Conference. And yes, i did cry. I was doing good but then they put up a list of all of the missionaries that were going home this transfer and the next one. Anyways, one of the elders put it down wrong and it said that i was going home this transfer. Yep, my eyes just automatically watered up. I regained composure and went up to Pte. Salas and asked him why he wanted me to go home early. Jaja. He didn´t even notice that it was written down wrong, but he went and changed it. But ya, we have a tradition in the misión that the fieles (faithful) have to give their testimony in their last zone conference. So I gave mine with about 10 other missionaries. It was a bittersweet momento. But we had a great zone conference where we talked a lot about new things that we can do to find success. Apparently our misión has grown in the faith. We went from the 12th (out of 14) baptizing misión in our area and now we are at 3rd. It was really awesome to see the change and the growth that we have done in just this year. And we are going to keep going and increasing in our faith. I love Zone Conferences!!
Yep, the misión is great! Don´t ever doubt it! I love the work we are doing and the change i´m seeing in others and myself! I love it and I love all of you! Help the missionaries this week!
