Happy late Easter everyone!!
We spent it getting soaked by the rain! We had just left lunch and we were on our bikes and it started drizzing. We didn´t want that to get us down so we kept going looking for people. It started raining harder and harder and we were getting super wet! We had not anticipated rain for that day so we brought nothing! We didn´t want to go home defeated form the rain so we kept looking for people to teach and knocking on doors. We thought that people would have mercy on us, but kept slamming their doors, and more rejection. We finally stopped by a members house who gave us shelter and warm towels for a few minutes so we could dry off! Miracle!
This week we´ve also had all the dogs from Villa Gesell attacking us! So I´ve been living with a constat heart attacks... I can now put scared of dogs on the list of things that I´m scared of. One even got my comp and bit her skirt! Luckily that was the only thing! Its us against the dogs!
Last Pday was a blast from America! We played volleyball on the beach, went to get Mcdonalds, and then got waffles! It was seriously heavenly.
This Easter I have felt my testimony grow of my Savior. Jesus Christ. I know He lives. I know that what he did is real and it can work for us in our lives at any moment. Nothing I can ever do or say can truly thank him but I know that I will forever be indebted to him. I´m a mormon! And if that makes me crazy for it, then call me crazy. I love this Gospel and know that it is true! Love you all! Believe in Him and His healing power!

Holaa Everyone!!
This week was pretty much amazing! We were blessed so much this week with lots of work and lots of SUCCESS! The first miracle was that one of our investigators, Karen, we thought that she moved to a different province in Argentina, but it turned out that she didn´t move and we were able to find her and her mom together for the first time ever and were able to teach them both and set a bautismal date for Karen!
Then on Sunday night, at a family home evening that we had at the church, we found the most perfect family! Or it´s better to say that the family found us! So we had gotten there late because we were out far at a lesson and we were trying to get the recent converts and investigators to the activity. With little luck and feeling discouraged, we went to the activity Locking up our bikes, we saw a young couple with a little baby girl stumpling around slowly outside the church. Something told me to lock the bikes quickly and talk to them and thats exactly what I did. We invited them in and they gladly accepted! They stayed for the whoel activity and loved it! They even participated and converesed with the members!! During the activity, I talked to the mom, Marisol about The Book of Mormon and the pamphlet of the Restoration. As I talked to her and gave her the books she looked at me as if I had given her a billion dollars. The smile and happiness on her face was undeniable and the Spirit confirmed to me so strong that this family was going to accept the Gospel. We got their address and their phone number and they want us to come visit them soon! After they left, I cried of joy. I had wanted to find a family here in the mission, but they had found me. I know that God put all of us there at that moment so that we could invite them in becuase I know that they were truly looking and in need for the gospel.

 The Church is so true, God really is at the head of this work, and The Spirit does guide us to the people that need the Gospel. I know it and I love this work so much, it can´t be compared to anything else!

Hello Everyone!
These past two weeks have truly been amazing! We had the chance to listen to Elder David A. Bednar last Wednesday. We were so close, on the second bench in the front of the church! I felt the Spirit so strong, it was so undeniable and I know without a doubt that he is an apostle of the Lord. He was also super hilarious and didn´t stand up and lecture us the whole time. It was more like a chat of answering questions and the bearing of testimonies. He incorporated all of us and so we were all the teachers. My stud of a companion even stood up infront of thousands of missionaries  and answered a question from Elder Bednar. It was the best day ever. The Spirit was able to answer some of my questions while other missionaries asked questions. About the worries of family at home or less active family members Elder Bednar said.. "Our absence is better than our presence at home."  "Keep your covenants! It brings the most power to your families."
He also mencioned how we as sisters need to worry a little less and that the elders should worry a lot more. It was so funny. But its true, we are too hard on ourselves, and sometimes for no reason.
My fellow MTC sisters and I were also able to be reunited!! All seven of us were there, since the split of our missions last July. It was soo nice to see old friends again and all of us back together!! :)
This week we´ve been working like crazy finding people! And its been paying off!! We found 2 new investigators in one week, which is like unheard of here in the coast. Every day God literally leads us to where we need to go and when. And when necessary, he sends people to lead us. That truly happened this week. We found a lady that actually lead us to the house that we were looking for. Small miracles are happening everyday but they make such a huge difference! THIS IS GOD´S WORK! I love it!!!  The Church is so true and the gospel is so good!
