A Baptism!

So everything here is Argentina is going well. I am happy to say that yes the baptism of Lucas Miño did go through. He was baptized on Saturday and confirmed on Sunday. It was a super cool experience and there was a pretty good turnout of people who went to see him. The wedding for the 24th is still on track as far as we know. He is out of work right now so that has been a struggle for him, but he is still going to church every week and we talk to him at least once or twice a week. He lives rather far away so it is hard for us to go visit him very often. Things seem to be on track though.

We have a few other investigators that are progressing pretty well. A lady named Isabelle seems really excited about it all and accepted a baptismal date for the 1st of August and committed to go to church for the next two weeks running. She has some really good friends in the church that include the bishop and his family. An older lady we have been teaching named Elva is moving along slowly but surely. We’re focusing on Joseph Smith with her, helping her to gain a testimony of the Book of Mormon.

There are various others that we are teaching at the moment. We’ve also been having a lot more results with members present at lessons finally. It really helps to have a member with you while you are teaching because they always have good insights and all that good stuff.

It has been a pretty uneventful week all in all. The baptism went well. We did divisions yesterday. We didn't really do anything today for p-day. Things are just super tranquil here. The flu is kind of bad and there are a lot of people who just don´t answer their doors or won´t talk to you cause of the sickness so that makes things different, but what can you do, right?

Take care. Till next week.
