Mommy & All,

This week was good. Transfers happened. We all thought my comp, Elder Fogo, was leaving since he's already done 4 transfers here in Ushuaia and hasn't been anywhere else since he started the mission here. But when transfers were announced, he got assigned to do a 5th transfer here which is pretty rare and he's going to have been in his first area for 7 1/2 months which is fair amount of time haha. But Elder Jensen got a new comp, so we were in a trio with him, and since he's Zone Leader, we were flying around till night with people going out and coming in.
We all met with Santi again this week. We were able to sit down and read with him some more. We read about the story of Jacob and Sherem. How Sherem came into the people of Nephi preaching against Christ and his coming into the world and how Jacob stood against him. Sherem then asks for a sign, that if all Jacob says is true about God, then he should have the power to show him. And then Sherem was struck dumb and that was his sign. In this part, it talks about how we shouldn't be sign seekers, how we shouldn't always be looking for something amazing to happen to grow our faith because if that's the case our faith will never truly grow. But it also reminded me that our God is a God of miracles. How it talks about in the Book of Mormon that miracles haven't ceased because Jesus ascended into heaven. How we can see little miracles every day if we are looking. We talked about this with Santi and his faith and spirit seemed to grow every day. He is praying and likes to read with us and asks questions in a way that he truly wants to learn.
ABOUT MY FOOT: The surgery went pretty good. I am just starting to walk today and i still have 3 stitches in my foot that they are going to leave till next week. Excited to get out and start walking and working again though.
