The past couple of days have been meetings and more meetings, President Rogers told us about our mission vision, “To help the Patagonias get a Temple!!!” Some of the people here have to travel the farthest than anyone else in the world to go to the temple! In order to accomplish this goal we have to find, teach, baptize, and reactivate of course! Our mission vision goes with the scripture Matthew 28:19-20. There is a promise that if we preach the gospel with all our heart, might, mind and strength the Lord will be with us until the end of the world. How comforting to know that He will be with us even down here in the middle of no where! 🙂 I love President and Hermana Roger´s love for the work and missionaries who serve here. They remind me of my parents, they expect a lot from their missionaries and trust them to fulfill these expectations.
During all these meetings we were served a lot of good Argentine food! Empenadas, pizza, ensalada de fruta, facturas, raviolis… wow lot´s and lot´s of bread. I do not think they eat anything green here. ha! Saturday we got our companions. My companion is from Cordoba Argentina and does not speak a lick of English. Her name is Hermana Gudiño! I love her she´s so cute and laughs at everything. I´m in Puerto Madryn (another 5 hour bus ride) right now which is a brand new area. Gudiño and her last companion opened it! Isn´t that cool. And we have 2 people getting baptized this Saturday! Caleb and Micaela. They are both 18 and super cool.
My place is the size of a one car garage!! haha it´s really really really small and all of the building is tile. It´s kind of a crazy change from the Salt Lake City royalty mission!! But I am getting used to it. It has only been 2 days… I will give myself a week to get used to it!
