The Many Miracles of Centenario

Ok this week was pretty great. This here in the area of Centenario C are progressing, A FULL!

So, fun fact, we may have a baptism this Saturday. One of the members here was talking to us and wanted us to teach her sister-in-law. So we went and she has some learning disabilities and possible schizophrenia. Igual, we are teaching here. She comes to church almost every week and we put a date for the 27 of Sept, but as we were talking this week with the member, she said if we wanted to, we could baptize her this Saturday. Yup. This Saturday and we met her this week. It’s crazy. We are going to visit her every day this week in order to do it but it's going to happen. We just have to teach her really simply and she can learn it. We are super excited. 

We also have a baptism planned for the following Saturday too with the brother of the same member. (Just so you know, the Hermanas here are also baptizing her grandson this week so her family is going STRONG right now haha) But he is progressing really well. He is feeling the Spirit every time we teach him. He still isn’t sure if this is the right path for him, but he is going to get baptized. We are almost positive. This week we had several cool lessons with him and he is progressing which is great.

We also had the Capilla Abierta this week! It was really cool. So they setup many different rooms. The chapel was setup with a big cutout of The Christus and they played a little thing in there. Then people would transfer to the gym where they would explain quickly almost all of our beliefs. Then they would come to the baptismal font. That’s where I was. We were dressed in all white and explain the purpose of baptism. Then they would go to all sorts of other rooms that explained things like primary, relief society, Priesthood, young men’s, young women’s, family history, etc. It was so cool! In all honesty we didn’t get a whole lot of non-member traffic, but it was really cool to see all the members come together and have a good time sharing the gospel. It was a really cool experience and I hope this program makes it to the States. It’s really is so cool!!

Other fun things:
1) Elder Marx bought a cactus. Its name is Regina.
2) We did lots of Exchanges (We switch companions for a day) this week. We always see so many miracles with exchanges. It’s great. Plus we get to know everyone better. It was fun!

I think that is about it. I’m sure we did so many more things, but they all disappear when you actually sit down and try to write them. I love you all and I am so grateful for your constant support and prayers. It really does mean the world to me. I am grateful to have all of you in my life and am grateful for the help you gave me to get me where I am, in Argentina serving the Lord. This truly is His work and the fact the He entrusts me to do it is an incredible blessing. I am learning so much and having the time of my life.
