January 26, 2015- in La Plata with Elder Vargas

"lunch with the familia Aguerro, they are like our best friends. we teach with them a lot and they always invite us to do family home evenings in their home."


So this was a pretty good week.  we had a lot of fun things happen and this week that’s coming up is gonna be really good too I hope. First my new comp is named Elder Vargas.  He’s got 4 months left and started his mission in the ward right next to ours in el Carmen, so he knows La Plata pretty well too. He’s from Brasil. The only thing I really notice about the Portuguese accent is that he says the word “hola” funny. It’s kinda weird. He’s great, I’m really excited to be with him and I think I’m gonna learn a lot from him.

It’s been really good here. We’re working with a lot of menos activos still so we spend a lot of time teaching just scriptural messages. We also had the chance to go do service this week. We went to help this lady start and build her wall. It was kinda fun. I got to use a pickaxe and no I didn’t put it in my knee- which was  good. I got really good at like bending and cutting wires. Also power tools and cutting rebar was fun- lots of sparks and stuff. 

With investigators were moving pretty well with some of them. We have L..... who’s twelve. He was gonna get baptized a while ago but then decided not to. He’s back to coming to church so we can finally get him baptized. Just got to make sure that he understands the responsibility part of it. 

Next we have D........ She’s really intelligent, she’s a nurse, which means she's really rich for this part of town. She’s got a ton of questions which is really nice cause we have a ton of respuestas. I’m really hopeful for her, she’s reading the Book of Mormon and everything. I think we just got to get her to church.  

Next the familia C....... We’ve been teaching them in the house of the Agguerro family. The dad’s mom was a member and he’s been to the church before but never felt the need to be baptized. There’s his wife and his two little kids. they all made it to the capilla this past Sunday which was really cool I think were just gonna keep teaching them in family home evenings with the Agguerro family until they finally get an answer and understand the importance of the gospel. 

Those are all of them that are really progressing well right now. And were really focusing on them right now with the menos activos. 

This next week should be really good. We have a ton of family home evenings with menos activos, investigators and the ward. We’re gonna do this thing in the chapel called trip to Hawaii. It’s where we pretend that we’re going on a plane and the plane crashes and then we use the other rooms to be like the stages of the plan of salvacion. It’s gonna be pretty cool I think.

Also we’re going to the temple this week. It’s like a 3 hour bus ride but I’m super pumped to go! It’s gonna be an all day adventure, but were all super pumped. 

My knee is fine- we’re gonna go to a doctor and they’re  gonna do something to it. I’ve been talking with the mission doc it’s all good.

Love you guys
Elder Sawyer
