Buenas Tardes!

Happy Monday Everybody! 

Seriously after 88 weeks of writing some kind of introduction to a weekly letter it gets pretty hard to not be boring and write the same thing week after week! But hey I am trying to manage! This week went pretty well, we had an interesting night on tuesday the power went out, and well some people got angry because it was kinda cold so they sent their kids out to protest and light the streets on fire! So we were at the bust stop when a bunch of kids and teens come running up and starting throwing a mixture of trash and old matresses in the middle of the main street in front of us and light fire to it! So we had to briskly walk to the other bus stop. Well that night we had a meeting with the mission president and the stake president, so afterwards Pres. Thurgood brought us back and they were burning stuff all over and shutting all of the streets off, he almost took us to the mission home but we told him we would be all right. Nothing happened to us during the night but they did rob all of the butcher´s (who lives below us) chicken! Then on friday we were at the same bus stop and out of know where a motorcycle comes flying buy and crashes with a car that was making a left hand turn and I watched the motorcylce go flying. (I am pretty sure he didn´t die, the good thing is that it is in front of the hospital!) So my companion and I decided not to go to that bus stop anymore! 

This weekend was also stake conference and it was so good! They were so many great messages that I just loved! It is always so nice when the members actually prepare their talks and try to share the message that God wants, you can always tell a prepared talked from a thrown together one, and all of the messages were great! It is nice to see strong leaders here in the area that are trying to help argentina grow and strengthen the church here! 

We have been able to find some new investigators and we have two baptismal dates for the 27! :) Liliana and Facundo, we are not sure if Liliana is going to be ready because her mom has been in the hospital but we have an appointmetn with her tonight so we will see, and I am pretty sure that facundo will be ready! He already listened to the discussions and has been attending church for quite a long time, just finally decided he wants to get baptized so overall we are pretty happy! 

Hope you all are doing good, and still reading along in the Book of Mormon! I am in 3 Nephi (not where those of you who took the challenge need to be!) and am about to finish the new testament again! I love the scriptures and the difference they can make in our lives! So keep on reading!!

Hope you all have a great week, and are enjoying the heat of summer, it is starting to get cold here! Love you all!
