Week 42

Mommy and All,

"Fear is that little darkroom where negatives are developed." -Michael Pritchard

This week was pretty good. All this traveling back and forth to Perito Moreno and back can ware you down haha my comp and I have both been pretty tired. But the work is going pretty good on both sides. We are really hoping and preying for 2 more baptisms this week with Rosio and Nahuel.

Rosio was introduced to us by a member here in Las Heras and we've been working with her along with the Hermanas. She moved down here from Buenos Aires about 8 months ago and all her friends here happen to be Mormon including the Branch President. When she got here, she didn't wanna hear one thing from the missionaries because all she had heard was bad stuff. But one day she opened up one time and now we are prepping for her baptism this weekend. Its amazing how when people truly wanna change and begin to open up their heart, that the spirit can enter and help with that change that much quicker. 

Nahuel is a big story. He is the husband of the "Bishop" out in Perito Moreno haha. His wife Natalia was the only member in Perito for quite a while and drove the 2 hrs every Sunday here to Las Heras to go to church before the other 2 families down there arrived. She does everything out there and its amazing to watch. She finds the buildings to meet in each Sunday, brings the stuff for the sacrament, and really if it wasn't for her, there wouldn't be missionaries in Perito. She is waiting so anxiously for her husband to get baptized so they can wait the year then go to the temple and get sealed with their really really cute little 1 1/2 yr old daughter. Nahuel is definitely ready for baptism. He lives the life of a Mormon, he just isn't baptized. He even told us last week that he received an answer to his prayers. The only thing now is that he is scared of all the responsibility he is going to receive after baptism and doesn't know if he can handle all that. So we went and played all our best cards, talking about eternal families and our own lives and how we just have to try our best we don't have to be perfect and gave our best lesson. So he told us he is going to pray one more time and that he would call us before Friday this week and let us know the final result. So we are waiting anxiously for that. Also if we baptize him, he will be the first person ever baptized in Perito Moreno so that would be cool too!

Side Note: With Elder Soto leaving this Sunday, I will most likely be on the move as well since I cant just sit here by myself. So it could happen, but don't plan on me writing next Monday because I have no clue where I will be, and I might be on a bus to Comodoro so I wouldn't be able to. But we will see!

Much Love,

Elder Christensen

Picture notes...The picture above was taken when he traveled to Comodoro to again try to get his Argentine paperwork and get his visa stuff taken care of.  He is with his mission president and several office elders.  

The three pictures below were taken at one conference in Caleta Olivia.

The last two are with a random car they found on the side of the road.  He was not driving or in it.
