Happy Birthday Levi!!! You are 15 now!!!!! That´s just nuts. I hope that you had a good birthday bud.
This week has been pretty loca. On Tuesday we went on divisions with the Zone Leader and a mini missionary. I don´t know why, but it seems like there are always miracles during divisions. We taught Ramón about repentance. He has been drinking a lot less than before, and is reading the Book of Mormon! The best part was that he went to church yesterday!!! It was awesome. He loved Gospel Principles class. We are going to see him today and ask how he liked church. Sandra (His girlfriend) is going to get divorced today so that they can get married and he can be baptized.
We saw another miracle with Silvina. We had taught her and Pedro before, but they weren´t willing to live in seperate houses until Pedro gets divorced and they can get married. We saw her and she said that the divorce case will finally be finished this weekend, and if it doesn´t she is willing to get separated to be able to get baptized! She said that she feels like her time has finally come to get baptized. Now we´re waiting to see how the divorce ends up.
We have been visiting all of the new investigators from the other week and seeing how interested they really are. Sadly we had to drop some families, but we saw progress with a man named Marcelo. We taught the Restoration and he accepted the Book of Mormon and a baptismal date! We are pumped. Like the majority of Argentina, he isn´t married with his girlfriend so we are going to have to wait for a while for him to be baptized. He is awesome.
There is another new family that is huge. They have 8 kids that live at home and most of them have girlfriends living there too. It´s crazy. The parents are the ones more interested, but the sons are hilarious and always ask about the U.S. They think that I look like Eminem and call me that every time we go. They didn´t go to church yesterday, so we are going to pass by today and see what happened.
Something fun: We met a wealthy man that lived in U.S. for years and had Texas style cowboy boots. We spoke English with him and invited him to investigate the church and it all went super well. Then we found out from the neighbors that he is a drug dealer. Awkward... We also got to visit an investigator at his birthday party for a few minutes and sing happy birthday to him in English. We met a man there named Juan Carlos. He asked to talk to us because he wanted to know if there was a true church and he said that he has been feeling a void ever since he stopped attending a protestant church. He lives in the sister missionaries¨ area, so we passed the referral.
That´s the news this week. We´re psyched for Ramón and Silvina. Pablo is also doing really well, He has been reading the Book of Mormon every day. Every time we teach he understands more and more. The power of the Book of Mormon is amazing! I love you guys, ciaó!
