Well I made it to Argentina!!! :) Its the best here! The food and the people are so fantastic!!! I love it!So I got to Argentinaaround or so and then we finally got through customs that was fun! haha anyway by the time that we got out of the airport it was like , so then we took a bus and we drove about 4 hours to Rosario to the mission home and i got to meet my mission president! He and his wife are so great! They dont speak any english but are such great people! They love the missionaries and love to help in anyway they can!, I got to meet my trainer! Hermana Randall, She´s from Nevada and is the best ever! We are a lot a like and we just have a lot of fun! We left the mission home and went to our new area which is called Rafaela! It is so beautiful! Although, it meant that we had to take yet another bus! This one was like 3.5 hours or so! I am loving this area the people here are super helpful and love the missionaries!, we got to work! :) We met with a lady named Graciela! She is so cute she loves the church and loves our visits! However, she loves her church a little more. She´s really sweet though! She loves The Book of Mormon and loves everything about the church but she doesnt see why she needs to change! We also met with a man named Nestor, he´s this little old man or (Viajito) and is a less active member that we are working with to bring him back to church!, we met with a couple named Raul and Jesica! Raul is a recent convert and Jesica has been waiting to join the church because she wanted to know for herself and didnt want to join just because Raul did, Anyway during our lesson with her she asked if she could be baptized!!! She had finally recieved her answer that she should be baptized and we will be planning her baptism for the !!! That was so exciting!! :) We also made three new contacts this day! So all in all it was a great day! Something really funny that happened was we had lunch with Hermana Stoffel and her daughter! Our security rules have just changed because of areas getting more dangerous and so we asked them which areas we should avoid and so forth. Towards the end of our meeting her daughter pulls out her pepper spray can and tells us why we should get one and exlains how to use it. well while she is explaining it she pushes the can and out comes this bright orange fluid that goes all over the door! it was so funny but as she cleans it up the fumes come over us and we all just start coughing and our eyes tear up and everything! it was hilarious!!, This was a great day too! We met 3 more contacts and talked with some less actives inviting them to church and did a lot of walking this day! It was really great! The contacts we met two of them were friends and they are evangilist and they were really just quizzing what we believed but it was really cool because the one friend kept on flipping through the pamphlet we gave him and would answer some of the questions his friend had! That was really awesome to see! Something funny that happened this day was i came to the realization that i have gained some weight! hahaha no not really i just have been using a really old rusty chair and it finally broke! it was so funny we were doing studies and we heard this pop and i felt like i was falling but it was so slow so i didnt really realize it! haha and then i landed on the floor! haha It was really funny!!, It was Mother´s day!!! It was so great to see and talk to family! I loved being able to talk with you all! :) In sacrament meeting i was asked to come up and bear my testimony! That was fun! Everyone has been complimenting me on how well i speak spanish which is such a huge blessing! Its so nice to hear native spanish speakers tell me that my spanish is really good! Its a nice confidence booster! hahaToday, Well today was my first p-day!
