Well kids, this week was crazy. We did a few divisions and visited some peeps. We had a dupla in our zone that was having some issues. We went on a division with them on Tuesday. It was super interesting. I learned how simple things can be. I got there to their area and they hadn't even planned the day. The Elder I went with is pretty new on the mission. So I sat down with him and talked about the importance of planning and the little things. I asked him if they were using Preach my Gospel, the area book, and other stuff and he said no. So I showed him how to simply follow it and plan. It helped him a lot and they were able to resolve some of their problems. That was good.
That night I got a call from my companion (who was in our area) and he had a surprise! The assistants called and were coming to do a division with us Wednesday. yeah. They called the day before. Well, we had actually planned another division with a different area so we kinda just threw those plans out the window and planned a new day with the assistants. It went really well. I was with Elder Contreras from Neoquen, Argentina!
The rest of the week we just worked and worked and visited a lot of people. Leandro went to Church again and is doing really well.
Oh yeah! I forgot to tell about the festa Junina! That's a really big party here. Basically, any group of anything just has a big party in June or July and eats a lot of cowboy food. Ha. Totally what it is. Our ward had it on Friday. It was really good. As we were inviting our investigators to it, we ran into a lady named Vera. We invited her and she and her family went! That night, a different ward baptized a family of 4 in our chapel. And they wanted to watch the baptism first instead of going to the party. We are now teaching them. They're pretty cool.
Well, I just keep on keeping on! I love you all and can't wait to see your little faces!
Love, Elder Scott JACKSON Taylor
