Primavera! :)

It´s primavera here in Argentina!! Happy first day of spring :) I think the saying here is "September showers bring October flowers", because it has been raining almost all day ;)

We had our District Activity today and it was super fun! We all ate lunch together in the Chapel and then we went to a place here in Berazategui and played sand volleyball! Thankfully it didn´t start raining until we were just about finished playing :) Talk about MTC flashbacks! I absolutely loved playing sand volleyball during gym time in the MTC, and today it was just as fun! 

This week was crazy busy! Tuesday I had my first intercambio (companion exchange) as Capacitadora (sister missionary training leader). I went to the area of Gutierrez to work with Hermana Wood, a super sweet hermana from Utah. We had a great time together! She is a crack up! Before the mission, she did a lot of theater and acting, so you can imagine how well she immitates people and quotes movies and plays ;) it was great!

On Thursday, we had a big meeting with the Area President, Walter F. Gonzales. He came to talk to us about a few things, but especially about the importance of the Book of Mormon! He told us that any question that an investigator, street contact, or member has can be directed to the Book of Mormon! And I can add my testimony to what he said! The Book of Mormon never fails :) It is the word of God and it was written for OUR days! I hope you can all read a little more and study a bit more diligently in the Book of Mormon this week!

Saturday, our investigator, Ariel (16 years old), got baptized! Not too many members came, but the spirit was there and that´s what really matters :) His family came to support him and everything, which is a big milestone since his mom and dad haven´t been to church in over 10 years! He´s a great example to me and everyone around him! I know he will be a light in the darkness for his family and many others :)

All in all, it was quite the week! :) Take care everyone, love you!! Besos!

Con amor, Hermana Orgill
