This week Elder Jones and I worked our tails off and we also did something that I´ve never done in my mission. Every single morning we got up and ran. I think our hard work paid off because we were able to meet some great new investigators and a few of them came to church. Miracles!
On Sunday, Abigail the oldest daughter of Jesus was baptized. I was hoping that Jesus would choose to baptize his daughter, but he was a little nervous so Elder Jones performed the baptism. He´ll be able to baptize his youngest daughter Zaira in a year though I´m sure by then he´ll feel ready. And once again... I flooded the church, but it wasn't as bad this time.
Well this is the last week I have here in Argentina. I still can´t really comprehend that my time is coming to an end. I really love being a missionary. I love seeing how people can change their lives when they find the truth. I know that what I have taught the people here is true, that the church of Jesus Christ was lost, but has been restored by God in our modern days through his chosen prophet Joseph Smith. And along with the restoration of Christ´s church came the restoration of the authority, the miracles, the ordinances, the prophets, and the living faith that existed in the times when the Savior walked upon the earth. I know that each and every one of us is loved by God and all of His blessings including eternal life are real and within reach of those willing to search for them. During these two years I helped people like this, "willing people" to activate their faith in Christ and live his saving doctrine of repentance, baptism and faithfulness to the end.
This has definitely been the most beautiful experience I've ever had. I´m going to be leaving part of my heart here in Argentina. If anyone at home wants to hear about what it was like here I'll be happy to share with them, Although it would be almost impossible to describe exactly what it´s been like. Also if anyone wants to know about about what I believe and why I came here to Argentina feel free to ask me, or talk to the missionaries next time you see them, or click here www.mormon.org.
Love you all,
