Chau a todos

So we lost or dropped pretty much all of our investigators this week. All that means though is that we have a lot of work to do. Lot´s of time to look for people that will progress and get baptized. I think the most dissappointing part is Belén. Her mom and dad set up some sort of agreement and now she goes to her dad´s every weekend and he´s not too interested in the church. So, she will not be able to attend church. Hopefully we can figure something out. If not, we will have to drop her too. But, like I said, lot´s of room to progress.
Sorry for that kind of depressing beginning. It was honestly a sweet week. Since mother´s day was Sunday, the men put on a dinner on Friday night to celebrate. It was really good (the food), and we had a great turnout. It seems like the Argentines are 100% more likely to go somewhere when food is involved.
We did a lot of contacting. Not just door knocking/ clapping, but looking for less actives, old investigators, etc. We were able to set up a lot of visits for this next week. Hope they pull through!
Not too much more happened this week. I can´t believe how fast time flies, even when we can´t seem to make progress happen. I guess choosing to be happy and living the gospel make things seem easier, funner, and quicker. I don´t think I´ve ever been happier. Being a missionary is better than winning football games, winning wrestling matches or pole vault competitions, going on dates, hanging out with friends, or anything else I´ve done. It´s just plain awesome.
Con amor,

 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
