Aug. 19, 2015 Travels

Querido Familia y Amigos!

Bueno. Monday was Dìa de San Martin--the guy that liberated Argentina--or something like that. Argentina has holidays every month, and if they don`t have them, they invent one. So literally EVERYTHING was closed, and we couldn`t do cyber. So we are writing you today (with permission;). 
Luis! Our converso!
   This last week was crazy. I know I say that every week, but really, every week is a different type of crazy. Last week I traveled five out of the seven days. On Tuesday I did divisiones in 9 de Julio with Hermana S- --one of my MTC Comps! It was super awesome to be with her again and to get to see her progress again. We did service, painting the house of one of the investigators that is moving from the elders` side to the hermanas` side. It was super fun. Wednesday we traveled to go back to Bragado. On Thursday we had to go to Ramos Mejìa for tramites. So Friday we drove all over Ramos and Captial doing tramites. So we got the joy of sitting in a government building for five and half hours to wait with a million other people so we could help Hermana F- be legal. It took so long that the room that had 200-300 people in it before only had 10-15 by the time we left. Awesome. But I learned something really cool from it.  I learned that that is how God feels every time we put off doing the things that we know we should be doing. He is waiting on us, that we can act, and then He can give us the blessings that He wants to. Also, in the mission, He is waiting for us to act, to prepare someone for the next Hermana or Elder that will help this person to progress and achieve their potential! By the time we finished and got back to the offices to drop off the papers and to the bus station to take the Micros, all of the seats of all of the buses to Bragado were full. So we had to go back to Ramos to spend the night and leave Saturday morning, early, to get back to Bragado. It is good to be home! Looking forward to seeing more miracles and progress in this area! Transfers are next week, so we are hoping that we both stay here, since we just got here! 

Love you all lots! 
Portense bièn, que nada le cuesta!
