What a way to start off the new year: Showing the new Elders in our area around Berazategui! We are now 4 missionaries in the Berazategui area, woo! We´re going to be able to work even harder now because our area was cut in half: half given to the Elders and half for us. Sadly, we won´t be working in the area where most of the converts that I´ve seen get baptized live. But the Elders will surely take care of them and I´ll still get to see them on Sundays :)
I´ve been a little sick with a stomach problem the past few weeks, so that was a bit bothersome. But thankfully we still got to meet a new investigator, Graciela. She´s a middle aged woman who owns an antique shop and she´s great! She´s so nice and she has been reading the Book of Mormon ever since one of her LDS friends gave her one :) (Member missionary work: woo-hoo!) We just started teaching her and we taught her the Plan of Salvation, which she understood very well :) She committed to pray about it and read a few specific verses we left with her in the Book of Mormon! We´ll be praying hard for her so she can keep coming unto Christ :)
Today for P-day we went to an all-you-can-eat pizza and empanada place! It was great! Almost our entire zone went (At least 16 Elders and 4 Hermanas), so you can imagine how much pizza we must have eaten! It was quite the day :)
Happy New Year! Don´t forget to write down your goals and new years resolutions (good luck with all the diets out there ;)
One goal we can all put this new year was well said by President Howard W. Hunter:
"We must know Christ better than we know him; we must remember him more often than we remember him; we must serve him more valiantly than we serve him."
Love you all, take care!
Con amor, Hermana Orgill
