Eating 50 facturas

Hola todos!                                                                                     

Sounds like you have a fun spring break trip planned! I was about to say that Provo in the Fall is beautiful, but I guess its not the fall over there is it? Provo’s spring are a little wet and mucky, and that’s probably why you have to go to Zions National Park to get your scenery in. The chill of fall is definitely in the air here, but it’s still hot--only with a chilly breeze. On Friday I was able to make some hot cocoa because it was raining, so there are a few chilly days, but I’ve comfortably worn short sleeves everyday. 

It’s been a difficult but rewarding week in San Fransisco. Pablo again left for a different province to work so we were unable to get him baptized this week, and Elder Cobb had a really bad cold that slowed us down a bit. We spent a lot of time trying to plan an activity for Friday, but on the day there was a giant rain storm and all of the buses in the Province of Buenos Aires shut down. We had to postpone the activity a week. That being said, we also had a lot of success.

We were finally able to talk with Ramona again. We talked with her and learned that she is addicted to cigarettes. We then gave a powerful lesson on why the Lord asks us not to smoke, and the blessings that come from it. The spirit was strong as we testified of his love for her and that he would help her. 

We also had a great lesson with a new investigator that we found last week. We shared the Restoration with her, and then asked her to pray about it to know if it was true. To our surprise she started to pray in that very moment. At first it was a little awkward because we didn´t know what to do, but we waited in silence for a few minutes, and when she raised her head again, we knew that she received her answer. She prayed and said that she felt Bien, Rey Bien. We plan on visiting her again this week.

Funny story of the week. My companion and I bought 50 facturas for the activity this Friday. Facturas are like donuts. The problem is that we bought them the day before, and when the activity was cancelled, well, let’s just say we ate facturas for Dinner, Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and another breakfast.

Anyway, hope yáll having a great life, love you all
