November 10, 2014- in La Plata with Elder Delgado

"just a normal day in the hood"
So these past two weeks have been pretty busy. Our barrio really wants us to focus on reactivating members, so that’s what we really spend most of our time doing. They have all these different lists of people they want us to visit once a week or twice a week. It’s pretty hard to get it all in plus getting to our investigatores. We have a bunch that are really close to baptism. We just struggle finding them. Marianah is usually only around Saturdays and Sunday. Abrill just moved in with her mom who isn’t too friendly with the missionaries and everyone else just either has work or some other thing that makes it hard to reach them. That or they’re not married. It’s going to be even more difficult this week because of all the stuff we have going on. We have interviews with the prez Tuesday, and then Thursday the whole mission is coming together to listen to an Apostle. It’s going to be crazy. We have to leave from the train station at 6:00 am or something to get there. We think it’s either gonna be Nelson or Christopherson. Whoever it is we’re all really excited. Then on Saturday we have acapilla abierta or open house. I guess there’s gonna be a ton of missionaries there too I am hoping we get a few specific investigators there, especially those that are really keeping up with our commitments and just haven’t come to church yet.
The school system here in Argentina is weird -a lot of people have class at night and it’s all free up to college.
Argentines are pretty welcoming even the ones that don’t want to hear from us, they  think we’re pretty good kids since a lot of the 18 year olds here get into some bad stuff a lot of the time. fun thing -we have this menos activo guy who speaks English and is writing a paper or something on joseph smith so when we visit with him he always asks us to help him translate some talks by Truman g Madsen. It’s always interesting, I think you would like them.
I’m finally feeling like I sorta know my way around. We did intercambios (divisions) this week so I was “along” in my area a lot, but I ddn’t get lost, except I took the wrong bus to the Stake Center. We almost ended up in who knows where, but we got off and were able to walk there, so that’s good.

Love you all
Elder Sawyer
