This week was really good we did a ton of work! We found a lot of great people too. This Monday we found the mother of a less active Young man and her and her neighbor are now taking the lessons and we have a lesson with them in an hour from now. Also we have this other lady that we talked with Monday night that you could just see the hunger as we talked to her about the church and the Book of Mormon and such. We won't be teaching her for a while for her work and such but we'll see how it goes with her. We're going to have to go by and invite her to General Conference. We also have someone who actually has a date set to get baptized. It's a great story. First off all of the stores in Argentina to buy food in are really small corner shops type of thing so we have four within about 2 blocks of us. All of them except one were closed a little while ago because of vacations but the one that was open we went to buy some food and after we had bought the food the lady at the counter said, "Elder". Our ears kind of perked up like a dog that hears a whistle and she says, "What does my son have to do to get baptized?" We'll we told her that we would like to come back when she was available and tell her all about it. So a little while later we do that. The son, Ivan is his name, comes to church and now he's going to be getting baptized the 10th of April. His mother Lidia isn't married and for that reason alone isn't already baptized so we're trying to work with her on that. They're also going to come to conference this weekend too.

Speaking of which I'm so excited for! We have it here at 1 in the afternoon and at 5 and priesthood at 9. So kind of late but I'm really excited to go and bring a lot of people too! Well everyone enjoy conference. It's the most wonderful time of the year hahaha. It's really something amazing to have a living prophet, a living church. We enjoy so many blessings that others just don't have in their lives. Conference is one of the best ways to find out what we need to do to avoid a lot of heartache and misery by following what the prophet and apostles say!

Well have a great week chou!
