Week of Changes

Wow, this week has been super crazy! There have been lots of changes, some good and some bad, but everything will work out the way Heavenly Father needs it to. :)

First off, Claudia didn't move to La Pampa!!! :) :) Angel and Claudia found a house that is super close to the capilla and they are going to stay in CaƱada!! The only problem is that their in the area of the other hermanas. They are still in our ward, but they live in the other area. They are going today to find all of Claudia's documents and hopefully they can get married soon. :)

Hermana Matias' ankle still hurts, but we went to Rosario and Hermana Zanni bought her inserts for her shoes so that she can have more support. She paid for everything! And then she took us out for lunch! She is the best and really loves us a lot. It was super nice of her to help Hermana Matias. :)

Hermana Rodrigues also went to Rosario for her knee...and the results weren't good. :( She has a stress fracture in her knee cap and she has to go home to get surgery. :( We are very sad because we don't want her to leave! She is a super great missionary and she will be able to come back to the mission after she heals. And since Hermana Rodrigues is going to leave....Hermana Thornton is going to be with us! We are going to be in a trio! I am going to be companions FOR REALS with Hermana Thornton AGAIN!!! What?? Haha, this never happens, especially with your trainer. We are super excited to all be together and have lots of experiences together. :) We are going to have to work in both the areas for about 2 weeks, and then we will see what happens next transfer.

I want to take some time and write about our other investigators, because we have a ton. I will write about a few of them.

The first is Martin. He has just a few problems. He smokes, drinks, is addicted to illegal drugs, gay, and a prostitute. Only a few problems. However, he is at a point in his life where he literally has nothing left. He doesn't have any money, family, or anything to live for. Last Sunday, we walked into the church and he was sitting there, waiting for church to start. Ahh! It was a miracle! We talked to him this week and told him he really can change and can have a new life. He now has a baptismal date and we are super excited to work with him. I can't wait to see the change in him. The atonement is real!!

The next investigators are a couple named Luis and Norma. They have two kids and aren't married. Norma cooks really good food and cooks bread every week. It is so delicious!!! We are going to cook with her this week. Norma really loves the gospel and wants to learn more. Luis has a harder time accepting the fact that there is only one true church. But they come to church almost every Sunday because they feel good and they love to learn. We are trying to help them receive answers that this is the only true church. Pray for them so that they can pray and receive this answer!

The next one is Valentina. She has 86 years and she is such a sweetheart. She is married to Marcos, and he is super sick right now. This week, we got to her house and she was about to leave. We asked her where she was going, and she said, "I'm going to my boyfriend's house." We were all like, "What??" She began to tell us all about this man. He has 76 years and he is super handsome and they have a secret place. We totally believed it all because she was super serious! And then after like 10 minutes, she told us that it was all a joke. Haha, is was super funny. She is super great. We have to take things slow with her, but she is learning and progressing a lot. :)

Anyway, this week has been super good! I've learned a lot and I am excited to see what this week brings! I hope everything is going well for you all! I love you!
