Jesse - Email - July 7

hello to the Arizona heat! right now i could really use some of it! for the past two days it was raining and really cold but of course we tracted anyways. we got a little wet and it was a little hard to stay warmer but we survived. and the blessing is that we havnt gotten sick. the work this week was absolutley amazing and i dont really think i can describe it. we were really blessed and found 5 new investigators! and one of them we found Saturdayy and came to church the very next day! his name is Silvio and he is 23 years old, we are pretty sure this guy is going to serve a mission. speaking of missions Maxi essquivel, the second baptism ive had in Argentina has served 2 mini missions and i think started doing his papers to serve a full time mission! theres a little pride in my heart with that young man:P but things here in La Cumbre have been great, the members help a ton and even the less actives are helping. im pretty sure the number of less actives in church this sundays outnumbered those of the active members! and they give us a lot of refernces so even better! we have i belive 4 baptism dates for this month so we will have to wait and see which of them have a real change of heart. ARGENITINA made it to the semi-finals!!!! and surprisingly its the first time in 24 years!! we play on wednesday against Holanda(netherlands in inglish) and that is going to be a great match! and things are going to be crazy if we win or loze, so im hoping we win! today we played volleyball but with a soccerball and everything other than hands, i love the Futbol here!!!! it never gets tiring!! overall a really great week full of blessings and excitement for the wolrd cup(Mundial! from the sound of it everyone at home is doing great and had fun at the beach in cali, im a little jealous but then i realize im in argentina!!! haha i love everyone but i just might stay in argentina serving the lord for a little longer than 2 years:P i love everyone and pray that you are all safe and doing well! nos vemos, y desfrutan el mundial!!! by the way im not sre if you can use it but there is a site you can watch all the games live, "futbollparatodos" just in case yu want to watch the reast of the world cup:) `
