Zone Conference

February 8, 2016

hi family! how are you!! i hope you are all doing well!!
this week was really good! i was still recovering from being sick so we tried our best to work the most! 
this week we had a zone conference and the president got to train us a bit. it was really good because we are trying to change the mission culture. it is really good that we are doing that because we can always be better. i love going to zone conferences because they always give me the animo to keep moving forward. it also hit me that i have to work even harder because my time is coming to an end and i'll never be a missionary again. this week we also got to go and do exchanges with some other hermanas and i really learned alot. they are our hermana leaders and it was nice to get some new ideas. we have an estandarte de la mision or like the goals that each companionship has to try to complete! every week we have to have:

 BAUTISMOS – 2 every week, every companionship
·        lessons with member present – 14 every week, every companionship
·       References from members – 49 every week, every companionship
·       investagators in sacrament meeting– 7 every week, every companionship
·        investigators with baptism date– 10 every week, every companionship
·        new investigators – 18 every week, every companionship

this is what president has asked us to complete every week. This week we are going to try and do it. it may be a little dificult but its not impossible. 
this week we were able to see Lucia. she is going to get baptized on february 27th. she is so ready and she has started coming with us to teach! she is 12 and wants to get baptized. she is so prepared and i know that the missionaries found her prepared. we are also working with Agustina. she is 15...i think. she is really great. she is the niece of a member in the ward. she loves coming to church and we asked her to be baptized and she said yes. she will also be getting baptized on the 27th with lucia. we also have eliana. she is 21 and she told us yesterday that she has been reading the book of mormon every day! we were really excited to hear that but she works and goes to school every day so its hard to find her. but we invited her to be baptized and she said she is going to pray to see of baptism is something she should do. we are seeing good things here in centenario. the hard thing is that the less actives are really hard here. we try to help them and they say theyare going to come to church and dont show up. they also say a lot of excuses. its so hard when they don't let us help them. I know someday they are going to come back but i just want to help them get back to church now. it is so so so so so so so hard to meet someone who was baptized and they dont want to go back to church. they make up excuses so they don't have to go. it honestly makes me want to cry. Someone who has made a covenant with our father in heaven and they don't go to church. i feel sad when i see one person but imagine how christ feels or when the sons of mosiah were teaching and the people rejected them. i know one day they are going to go back to church but it just hurts so bad. i have such a big love for this gospel and i know that we HAVE TO GO TO CHURCH. or else we can't repent. we have to take the sacrament in order to repent. i know this church is true. 

I am so happy that i am here in argentina and we are seeing a little of success. be the kind of people that your heavenly father wants you to be. i love you all so so much. i hope that you enjoy your week!
