HOLA!Esta semana fue de diez!And I can´t write in spanish haha. This week went well. Lucas got confirmed yesterday, so that was good. Also, this week we received a reference of a woman that works in a kiosk here and the reference was from a guy that is less active but he told us she wanted to listen to our message and get baptized. We thought he was sending us to visit some friend as a joke or something that didn´t want to hear about the gospel, but we went anyways. Her name is Mimi and she had a picture of Christ on the wall of her kiosk! We pretended we wanted to buy some chocolate and then she asked us if we were Mormon. We started to teach her and she went to church yesterday! We put a baptismal date for the 5th, so hopefully all goes well and she gets baptized the 5th! The next day, we visited a less active lady that lives on the same street and she said that she had gone to the kiosk and talked to the lady in the kiosk and they were going to go to church together! She hasn´t been active in about 10 years! They went to church together yesterday and it was awesome! We are going to help her become active again and they are friends now! By the way, I don´t know if you noticed in the pictures from last week but the water in the font is green! Just how the water is here! Well, I don´t know if I had mentioned before, but because we are so close to antartica we have long hours of daylight here. It is light when we go to bed and light when we wake up! I heard in December and January it doesn´t get dark until around 12:30 am and gets light around 2am! Crazy huh! It´s weird because it´s always light even when we go to bed. Also, I don´t know if I ever said, but from my area you can see Chile! Kind of cool.Also, the past week Hermana Tejada called us to see if anyone was going to be in Buenos Aires for her fairwell. (She finished her mission). I got to talk to her for a few minutes which was fun! She said my spanish has improved a TON. Also she told me how my converts in Vicente López are doing! She said that they both have been blessing the sacrament every week! Also, one of our investigators, from when I was there, Carlos (16 yrs old) got baptized a couple weeks ago and my first convert Abraham baptized him! Also, another lady got baptized and Miguel (my other convert there) baptized her! Both are doing tons of geneaology work to prepare a bunch of names to do when they can go to the temple next year! I was really happy to hear of their progress!The work here continues to go well. For now, we are working with 3 or so to get baptized next month that have baptismal dates and hopefully all goes well with that. Also, we are working hard to find new people to teach!This morning I was studying in the Book of Mormon in Alma 26-29. I love chapter 26. It is basically Alma talking about his mission and the missions of his brothers among the people of the lamanites. I specifically would like to mention Alma 26:27. Even though sometimes times were tough, and they wanted to quit the Lord was always there for them and they were able to endure with patience! Also the Lord gave them success! This is a great promise (no I don´t want to go home and I´m not discouraged, but it´s good advice in general in life). The Lord will always be there for us! We have to rely and trust in Him! Also, this morning I was thinking about my goals for my mission and what I want to do and become. I love verses 28-31 or so. I want to be able to say that at the end of my mission!I hope everyone is doing well! I love you all! Happy Thanksgiving! Eat lots of Turkey for me! I have yet to see turkey here. I haven´t even seen it like deli meat for sandwiches. They eat lots of salami type meats and ham in their sandwiches. :)Chao!Hermana Jones
