Families can be forever :)

This week was full of fun! On Tuesday I got to travel, without a companion once again, to Quilmes for Leadership Council. It´s always an adventure! I didn`t get back to Villa Gesell until 10:30pm Wednesday night. But it´s always fun to see all the other missionaries that don`t get to see very often :)
We got to attend a baptism on Saturday for one of the little boys of a recent convert family, Adriano Guerra. It`s always a special day when a child of God makes the decision to be baptized! The spirit was there, especially when Adriano entered the warm water to be baptized by his dad, a recent convert of just one year! :) Families can be together forever!

On Sunday, a miracle happened! The boyfriend of our golden investigator, Karen, came to church for the first time! His name is Diego and he has never really had any interest in changing his worldly habits or coming to church, but he came!! Hermana Lemos and I were so excited, it`s a huge step for him. We`ve been praying and fasting for them so that Diego`s heart can be softened and he can realize all the blessings that are waiting for him if he´ll follow the Savior´s example: an eternal family!! It was the cutest thing, seeing Karen and Diego sitting next to eachother in sacrament meeting, next to their little 2 year old son, Alexander. I could honestly see this family all dressed in white, ready to recieve the blessings of living the gospel. I love this gospel :)
Today for P-day, we all met in Pinamar and walked over to the beach to have a picnic lunch and build sand temples! It was a bit windy and chilly outside, but that didn`t stop us from having a fun time together as a Zone! :) One brave Elder even let himself be burried... what a trooper!
Well, take care everyone :) and have a great week! Remember to look for the Lord´s hand in your life every day. I testify that it´s always there.
Love you all!
Con Amor, Hermana Orgill
