Happy Easter!

Feliz Pascua Todos!                                                

Its been a great week! We remember the Savior and his sacrifice every day, but there is no denying that there is a special spirit of the Holy Week, where we can really focus on what he did for us, and why it is important. 

It was really great because the majority of our lessons were about Easter and Christ´s sacrifice for us. It is amazing that through our savior´s sacrifice, we are all able to live again, overcome challenges, sin, sickness, and death. That because someone was so selfless, that he wasn´t just preoccupied about his own salvation, but the salvation of every living soul that has or ever will live on the earth. We cannot understand how great the atonement really is, but we can appreciate what he did, and understand that it is the only way to be happy, have  peace, hope, and it is the only way to reach our eternal destination, and live with our loving Father in Heaven, and our Savior Jesus Christ. All he asks is that we follow him, keep his commandments, be baptized, and he will be with us everyday until the end. 

Sorry its a little late, but its only a day late. Just know that I know that he lives, while it is important to respect, and worship his sacrifice for us, his death and suffering in Gethsemane, it is even more important to celebrate and appreciate the fact that he rose again, and lives today. I know that my Redeemer lives, and loves each of us in a personal manner that we cannot understand.

The Easter custom here is to make the Easter eggs out of chocolate and fill the insides with candy. They don’t have an Easter egg hunt, but the chocolate is good! We got a lot of them because we are missionaries. All right! 

I also tried to make donuts today, and it worked well! I just need to figure out how to make a glaze or something, but I’m learning how to cook!  Pretty cool right? (Don’t show dad =)  )

We are still having troubles getting our investigators to church, and that is frustrating, but its a process I guess. Chances are that I leave the area in 2 weeks. That’s just what we are guessing. It would be nice to have a baptism the weekend before I change, but we’ll see.

Overall, it was a pretty good day. We visited the Stadium of Defensa y Justicia of the soccer team in our zone called Florencio Valera. They have really cool murals on the walls outside the stadium, so I, took some pictures, and it was fun. The other shields in the mural are other teams in Argentina. The Blue one that says CABJ is Boca and the Red one that says CARP is River, they are the biggest teams,

Love you all and have a great week
