Ponga amor en su alfajor

FELIZ CUMPLE MES A MI! today i hit 8 months here in the mission. wow i can't believe how fast time has gone! but i am loving every moment. bad times happen but as i look back on the experience that ive had, i cant remember the bad ones... only the good ones. this is truly the work of the lord that i am doing and that we should all be doing. to celebrate, all of us missionaries are going to have an asado. its like a bbq,  but better. the first of many!

this week has been good but it went by really fast. every week we have a family home evening with the ward here. the missionaries are in charge of it! so every week we get together and come up with ideas of what we can do. this last week we made alfajores de meicena. or in other words alfajores made from cornstarch. we made 180 alfajores so it was like 300 tops. then you can make then with dulce de leche and the shredded coconut. they are so good but we made so much. every person made a plate of 6 alfajores and they gave it to a friend or less active. it was really nice. also, we had an investigator come to it was really good!!!
we are working alot with our invitations to be baptized. yesterday we had a cool experience. her name is maria. she doesnt talk much and i have known her for awhile. so we went to see them and we started talking about the plan of salvation and how the only way we can enter into the kingdom of god is through baptism. so we invited her to be baptized and she said yes! we are still working on a date for here but it was really cool cause i have never seen her like that. we are seeing lots of progress. the members here are amazing! they are all so funny and generous to the missionaries. the youth program here is amazing i am going to miss those jovenes so much! we are seeing progress with our less actives and we are working so hard to get them back to church!!

i love being here and i am so happy that the book of mormon is blessing so many lives. keep reading. if your not reading every day, i invite you to start reading every day. even if its 1 verse. it WILL bless your life. i am amazed and grateful everyday that i am here in argentina talking spanish and helping others know who jesus christ is. he really is our perfect brother and i know he can help us with anything if we have enough faith. 

have a very successful week and know that i am always thinking about you guys! que tenga una semana de exito!! les quiero muchisimo!!
