First off, HAPPY MONDAY EVERYONE!!!!!!!! hope everyone is super excited for Family Home Evening tonight!!!! (but really... I think you should all start using/studying Preach my Gospel for FHE.)

Ok- this week we had a tons of good lessons and met a bunch of people really interested. They all were super excited about church and the Book of Mormon and everything, and when Sunday rolled around, almost nobody came! It´s really frustrating because I WANT to trust them, but I can´t. Yet again, I´m reminded to trust 100% in the Lord (but not in man.) 

Our difficulty this week was that all our possibilities for baptism are available to be taught after 6h30 at night- so we would spend our days finding and teaching, then once 6h30 hit, we used whatever energy is left to run all around our half of Sarandi teaching our possibilities the commandments. And then we ended up cutting 2 of them- (not progressing and going to church for the wrong reasons.) 
Thursday we had an activity at the church- integration night! It turned out really great! We had a bunch of member, new converts, and investigators too. Basically the bishop gave a short spiritual message, then we, the missionaries, took charge with the activities (which was a little stressful because as consequeces of a life of a missionary, you have ZERO extra time.) We had a couple of games, but the best one of all was this:
Everyone is sitting in a circle in chairs minus 2 people who are standing. They say something and if it applies to you, you have to move. (Like everyone wearing tennis shoes) But the 2 people left standing have to go to a table and dip their faces in water then dig for candy in a plate full of flour. Everyone loved it, and then at the end, we missionaries were pressured to do it too. (I´ll send photos.)

Friday we had interviews with President Genaro! He is really great and I know he is inspired and called of God.  He gives wonderful advice and I am constantly learning about obedience. Like I know that if I do as he says, I will be blessed and also, avoid lots of harmful situations. The same thing with our Heavenly Father and his commandments.  2 Néfi 2:41

Love you all!
