Queirido Familia y Amigos
En este momento de Navidad, quiero agradecer a los muchos personas que me ayudaron a venir en la misión. Gracias a los muchos maestros en la iglesia, mis amigos y más importante, mi familia por todo su apoyo y amor. ¡Gracias por sus buenas ejemplos por mi y por sus testimonios! Estoy muy agradecido por tener la oportunidad de servir mi Señor este Navidad y para buscar sus ovejas, ¡mis hermanos acá en Argentina! Se que es un gran privilegio y que todo es posible con su ayuda; que voy a ver milagros cada día y que voy a recibir la ayuda de muchos personas--los dos los que puedo ver y también de los que no puedo ver.

Thanks to the many teachers in the church , my friends and most importantly, my family for their support and love. Thanks for your good examples for me and for their testimonies ! I am grateful for the opportunity to serve my Lord this Christmas and to find his sheep ,my brothers here in Argentina ! It is a great privilege and that anything is possible with your help ; I'll see miracles every day and you'll be getting the help of many people - both those who you can see and those who you can not.

If you haven´t watched Él es la Dádiva (He is the Gift) yet, please do it! And if you have watched it, please watch it again! It has such a great message about the true meaning of Christmas, and who and what Christ is for us. or to watch it in español:
My new companion, Hermana Gillen

We had transfers and pday navideño en Miércoles. I recieved a new companñera! Se llama Hna G-. She is from México, abd is super adorable. She is also the Hermana Líder Entrenadora. We are working hard to find lots of new investigators and to help the investigators that we do have to progress. She has 13 meses en la misión, and has been in Campo the whole time--using bicis (bikes). So now she is trying to acostumbrarse a caminando--pobrecita. But she is a very good sport about everything and very positive. :)

L-, A-, y D- accepted fechas bautismal for 7 Febrero! They are the sons and husband of E- a recent convert. Their whole family had all the lessons earlier this year and were going to get baptized, but L and D couldn´t keep the Sabbath Day Holy for a Fútbol contract L had for Sundays. But now his contract has ended, so they can come back to church and can get baptized! The WHOLE family came to church on Sunday! ¡Este familia son super capos!
The makeup of our mission
On Friday the ward had their Cena de Fin de Año. It was a night full of miracles. There were several investigators there--DyE y their familia, and some of the investigators of the Élderes. There were also a lot of Menos Activos. One miracle that we saw: A couple weeks ago Hna M- and I passed by A-´s house (Menos Activo) and invited her to the dinner. She said maybe. Friday night Hna G- and I were trying to go to an investigator´s house, but ended up going one street over--the street where A- lives. A- is elderly and never lets anyone in her house, and never comes outside when we clap. We can only talk to her if she is alreadly outside in her garden or if we see her in the street. Bueno, A- was outside in her garden, so we stopped to talk to her and invited her to the dinner in 1 hour and she said she would come! We came back in an hour to buscarle, and while we were waiting for the colectivo, she said that it was a miracle that she was coming with us, and that she didn´t really know why she was coming. A ton of people were super excited to see her at church. I know that the Lord is using me--with my strengths and with my weaknesses-- to bless the lives of mis hermanos acá! It is super incredible para verlo! 

¡Les amo a todos! Se que vive mi Señor y que tenemos que tener nuestro enfoque en Él este Navidad. Se que por medio de Él todo es posible. Por medio de Él recibimos más bendiciones que sabemos es posible.   (Google translation:  I love you all! I know that my Redeemer lives , and we have to keep our focus on Him this Christmas. I know that through Him all things are possible . Through Him we receive more blessings we know is possible)
¡Feliz Navidad! ¡Recuerden la Dádiva!
Muchisimo Amor,
Hermana Durfee <3
