Service Projects, Struggling and Turning 20 years Old - 29 FEB 2016

29 FEB 2016

Hey Everyone!

Another long week here in Argentina but this time with revived enthusiasm!
Thanks to those of you who wished me a happy birthday, and if you forgot or didn't have time to write, don't worry you all know how terrible I am with remembering dates :P haha

So before getting all deep and such, there is one pretty crazy story. So the other day we provided service at a members house. We were laying cement on the roof of his house and when we got about

Home where they were working on the roof
halfway done, all 6 crossbeams broke in the middle, so we took it all off then used it to add more concrete on the ground :P haha. Afterward we finished cleaning up Abuelo Santiago´s patio and he made us an asado! Gaucho style haha.  He put the meat on the table and handed us forks and knives We also made the juice in a bucket :P

Anyway, the news is that Elder Bednar went to Buenos Aires this last week and talked to all of the area missionaries, including us and to sum up everything I learned, is that sometimes the only thing we can do is keep working. One missionary asked how we could speed up the work and they explained simply that its not up to us, all we need to do is work so that when the moments come, we are there to be the instruments God needs us to be.

Lately we've been struggling a lot trying to help the ward fulfill its responsibilities, find people to teach and attend church, and a lot more struggles and what I've learned is that I just have to keep working, I cant stop and get discouraged because that is when Satan wins and keeps us from reaching our potential.

I don't know why its been so hard lately, but I do know that I am learning a lot!
I hope you guys have a great week, I'll talk to you soon!
