How are you all doing? Sorry for writing late today, it is argentinas independence day and like every place was closed, but finally this place opened up for a while. it was super cool to see the grad pics that you sent me of caden and pierce, and sounds like dal is rockin it on the piano!
This week was good, we had church and had some people come. We are planning for some baptisms in the up coming weeks which will be great! andres is doing ok, but kind of took a turn for the worst becuase he got in a fight at school and his mom doest not want him to get baptized because of his behavior! we are working with him and should be able to help them get through this though! we also have some other investigators that are progressing so ill let you know how it goes!
i found a quote this week that i think will help you guys, and i like it alot and dont want anyone to quit the trek early! haha it is by c.s. leiws it says:
“No man knows how bad he is till he has tried very hard to be good. A silly idea is current that good people do not know what temptation means. This is an obvious lie. Only those who try to resist temptation know how strong it is. After all, you find out the strength of the German army by fighting against it, not by giving in. You find out the strength of a wind by trying to walk against it, not by lying down. A man who gives in to temptation after five minutes simply does not know what it would have been like an hour later. That is why bad people, in one sense, know very little about badness — they have lived a sheltered life by always giving in. We never find out the strength of the evil impulse inside us until we try to fight it: and Christ, because He was the only man who never yielded to temptation, is also the only man who knows to the full what temptation means — the only complete realist.”
It has helped me a lot. especially when it is hard to get out of bed or do things that require sacrifice, like a mission, but it will help you on trek im sure! well thanks for everything, sorry for not having fotos i forgot my camera, but next week i promise!!! love you all and thanx for everything! ill pray you dont freeze and that grandma gets better and can walk, cuz i aint carrying her!! love you all!!
