Cerro Campanario


I am doing well. We had an ok week. Not super great but this week should be looking better. We are teaching 3 different families and they are all really interested and it’s been great. I don’t have time to give more details, they are great though haha.

Also we had a sick Pday last week. We went to Cerro Campanario which is a hike up to a look-out where you can see all 7 Lakes in the area. Bariloche is beautiful you guys! This past week it was really windy! But it is especially windy up there.  The area in Bariloche where I am serving isn’t this pretty, I wish though. But it’s a lot prettier than all of my other areas haha.

I love you guys and we'll talk more next week!! CHAU!

New People to Teach


This week was a lot better. We found several new people to teach which is fantastic.  The Familia T didn’t come to church again so we have to figure out what the deal is with them

Our new investigators are actually all pretty interesting.

B and S - they are friends but we found them in B's house. We were just knocking doors and B let us in. We taught the Restoration and they seemed to like the message. We have appointments with them tomorrow.

F- We found her in the house of a less active that we met last week. The less active is super cool and wants to come back to church. She is his girlfriend and was very interesting in learning more!

V - She was an interesting find. There is this drunk inactive lady that we have been running into a lot lately (we are trying to help her quit drinking). But the inactive was at her friend V's house and called us over. While talking with the inactive, V liked what we were saying and was actually testifying with us haha. She wanted to come to church and learn more because she wants spiritual help in her life. We went to go pick her up to come to church but she couldn’t come. We are hoping she’ll come next week.

S - S wanted to shut the door in our face. She believes in God but not in an after life. We chatted with her and she alone decided that she wanted to know more. We asked her a couple questions and she realized she is missing something in her life. We have an appointment today.

M - M isn’t an investigator but we are going to see what happens. We don’t know who he is but is number is in our phone and he called us out of the blue telling us he couldn’t meet with us because his family doesn’t like us but he wants to learn and met with us because he has lots of questions. We told him he could call us or send a message whenever. Hopefully something will change so that we can meet with him and teach him.

Things here in Bariloche are interesting.  We have a family that we are teaching and they are super cool. The anterior elders found them. It’s the Familia T. He was a pastor for another church and wasn’t happy with it. He had a lot of questions and wanted to find the true church. He was walking past our chapel one day and the gates were open because they were filling the font for a baptism. He just walked right in and started asking all sorts of questions. The elders taught him about the Restoration and he was hooked. He just needs to get divorced, they need to get married and then they get baptized. But other than that family, that’s all we have going for us right now. We contacted ALL week in the hot sun. The temperature is a lot cooler here in Bariloche but there is a HUGE hole in the ozone layer here and so the sun is SUPER strong. You can feel it burning sometimes. It’s crazy.  I’ve been getting burnt a lot but now I know haha.

My companions name is Elder Hoffman. He is from Sparks, Nevada. He has 7 months in the mission. 

There are 12 missionaries here in Bariloche. It’s a fairly big city. My area is in the mountains so there is a lot more up and downs than any my other area so my legs are getting a workout and I’ve been feeling a lot more tired, haha but it’s GREAT!

My new pension here in Bariloche isn’t bad, but it’s better than my last one and it has a WASHING MACHINE! So that’s a plus.  

R, from Senillosa, was baptized by a member who is preparing to go to the mission. We thought it was fitting. I also found out that they REOPENED LAMARQUE!! Which is really exciting for me. There are now 2 elders out there and 2 elders in Choele Choel which is how it was before. I’m stoked.
