oi familia! 24 October 2016

oi familia! how is everyone doing? halloween is coming up! no one really celebrates it here, but there will be a halloween dance in the branch. recently everyone celebrated children´s day which is a big holiday in south america, like mother and fathers day. on november 2nd will be the day of the dead when everyone goes to the cemetary and in past years apparently missionaries spent the day in the cemetary singing hymns. they don´t celebrate thanksgiving here.. :( but that won´t stop me from giving thanks! 

unfortunatley, many of our investigators don´t want to investigate anymore, but now we have more time to move on and find the people that are being prepared. i am motivated and excited for a new week and to work more with members and less actives. don´t worry, Angelita is still continuing strong!

this week we had a zone conference in Alegrete which was really good and i got to see all of my old companions at once, it was so great! i took a picture that ill try to send next week. The conference was so good and ws about how, like david, we can overcome our ``golias´´ on the mission, witht the rocks of repentence, faith, good works, persistent prayer and patience. we also talked a lot about the grace of Christ and it was really comforting to remeber that when all is said and done, it is only through the grace and atonement of christ that anything is possible, and that with grace mircles are possbile. we have weaknesses and imperfections, but that is ok because we have the atonement of Jesus Christ.

have a good week everybody, i love and pray for you all :)
