Jesse - September 2, 2014
what a week! its been filled with sickness, fun activities, the spirit, meeting new friends and even accidents! to start out the week i ended up being sick Monday night through Wednesday, so that really sucked but i guess there's nothing you can really do about that,just keep moving on Thursday my companion and i got invited to go and help out in seminary. it was pretty tough though i must say, making american pancakes and playing ping-pong can really put a lot of stress on someone haha it was a great activity with the seminary students and they all really enjoyed the food and especially the maple syrup!!! they dont have that here so its like gold to them, good stuff! but i would have to say that the highlight of he week was Saturday! we had the chance to participate in a open house for a church in our zone. basically whoever wants can come and take a tour of the church as 10 missionaries participate and teach certain gospel principles. my companion and i were chosen to teach about baptism. so we looked pretty legit all dressed in white. but the best part was that we got to teach about baptism,nothing else just baptism,why we do it, what it does, why christ did it and it was just a really great experience. they were several groups that went through that really had the spirit and it made my eyes a little sweaty. there was even one group that went through that was all members(things had slowed down a little) so i thought alright cool we can just practice with them. this group ended up being one of the best ones we had and it was just an amazing feeling hearing the testimonies of less actives, and actives. yesterday was also great. we had a zone activity that i was put in charge of. we ended up buying a ton of meat,salad and drinks and had whats called an Asado. basically the best meat you can find anywhere, argentine cows are just different,unique, with a beauty that you cant find in your average cow, she means everything to me:P but seriously its freakin good! ohh and we also had tthe wonderful opportunity to witness a car accident yesterday on the way to a family home evening so that was cool, nobody died, just the car. but we did make it safely to the family home evening and it went great, ill ave to send pictures. but that just about summarizes the week that we had here in Argentina. i hope everyone has a great week! ohh yeah an i hear that there are a lot of missions that are using i-pads! what that about haha if we used i-pads here we wouldn't even make it out of the store before it was stolen, along with our wallets money and i-phones...oh yeah we have none of that either:P i love you all!
