July 15, 2013

This week has been nuts, but way fun. We were in Capilla del Monte (which is north of Cosquin) on Monday for pday, hanging with the district. Hermana Suarez cut my hair :) and we had a lunch deal with a member there in Capilla del Monte. Then Wednesday we went to Cruz del Eje which is more north than Capilla del Monte, for a zone meeting, we then stayed the night as a zone (minus the Hermanas) in Cruz del Eje, and then the next morning we all went to Cordoba to a big conference of a few zones with the new Mission President, Presidente Alliaud (Aleu). He’s super great and very excited to start progressing as a mission! I’m excited too. We had a few opportunities to give blessings to the sick in a little hospital in Cosquin. A member had some friends who needed help and so we said sure and came right away to help, and all of those we blessed are home now and getting lots better! :) A few of which will be future investigators :) the power of God is real and I will never deny it. The spirit that was felt was so strong and nobody could have denied that. We have a promise baptism for this week, his name is Mauro and he’s way cool! He’s 19 years old and wants to be a missionary! So exciting. he’s a stud! Last week I was on an exchange with Elder Fields from California. He’s super cool and we just kind of clicked and now we are way good friends, he goes to BYU Idaho as well and so we have lots in common! He told me on Monday, that he slipped pres a 20 so we can be comps, and I said, 20 pesos or dollars and he said dollars duh, they will do anything for dollars here haha! He’s a goof ball I love him. Overall I’m great, happy and improving! One thing President Alliaud said was that the moment we stop improving we are fried. So true! In all moments of life this is the case! I love my Savior and I will serve my Master!

  1. The world just keeps getting smaller. Elder Alliaud was my trainer in my first area on my mission in Uruguay. Jared's in great hands. He's going to LOVE him as a mission president!
