Week 26 - Millamapu, Bahia Blanca, Argentina

This week went well. Last Monday the zone went to Elder Driggs' area to play futbol. We ended up playing with a ton a kids and I mostly played as goalie. I was blocking everything, until one slipped through and the kids went nuts, starting a huge dog pile, it was nuts. I never heard the word Yankee so much in my life. This week we also had a Competición de tortas, and my compañero y yo decided to make a cake to compete, our cake consisted of churros, dulce de leche y bananas.

We explored more of the farther reaches of our area this week, with some success, but we keep finding people that have been contacted only like a week prior, so that is odd because this people are definitely in our area.

We are still working very hard to get our investigators to attend church ...

it's difficult.

Week 25 - Millamapu, Bahia Blanca, Argentina

Hola Familia y amigos, La obra va bien aqui en Argentina.

We had a good week with a lot of people por fin saying yes to us. It's good. We committed a lot of people to the church as well. We had a really good lesson with one of our investigators this week about The Book of Mormon and the power to seal family together para siempre. Our new president said that is really what this is all about, bringing family
together so that they can feel the peace and assurance of knowing these truths. I know The Plan of Salvation is God's plan, and I am really thankful for the family that God place me in.

Week 24 - Millamapu, Bahia Blanca, Argentina

MTC Comprades Reunion July 2015
Hey, we received our transfers calls last Saturday and I am ... ... staying!!! Yeah I know soooo exciting, no it is good, because we just were blessed to have investigators come to church. Yeah, we had a whole family come to services and it was awesome. We did lots of service this week, like cutting wood, picking up dog poop and construction. We worked with some members this week which was fun and good.

On Thursday we celebrated the 9 of July independence day here for Argentina, we went to the church played fútbol, ate torta frita, and talked with our investigators that showed up, we even showed them the pila bautismal. We are going to play Volleyball in White Bay today, should be fun
because I own at Volleyball.

 1 O that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mineheart, that
I might go forth and speak with the trump ofGod, with a voice to shake
the earth, and cry repentanceunto every people!

 2 Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice ofthunder,
repentance and the plan of redemption, that theyshould repent and come
unto our God, that there mightnot be more sorrow upon all the face of
the earth.

 3 But behold, I am a man, and do sin in my wish; for Iought to be
content with the things which the Lord hathallotted unto me.

 4 I ought not to harrow up in my desires the firm decree ofa just
God, for I know that he granteth unto men accordingto their desire,
whether it be unto death or unto life; yea, Iknow that he allotteth
unto men, yea, decreeth unto themdecrees which are unalterable,
according to their wills,whether they be unto salvation or unto

 5 Yea, and I know that good and evil have come before allmen; he that
knoweth not good from evil is blameless; buthe that knoweth good and
evil, to him it is given accordingto his desires, whether he desireth
good or evil, life ordeath, joy or remorse of conscience.

 6 Now, seeing that I know these things, why should I desire more than
to perform the work to which I have been called?

Week 23 - Bahia Blanca, Argentina

This was a good week. We found an awesome family and they had a lot of good questions about the restored gospel and about the United States. When we asked if they would go to church their daughter said, "!Yo quiero ir!". It was pretty cool.

The Copa America was going on this week and the final was between Argentina and Chile. During the game everything seemed to shut down and the streets were empty, except for the dogs of course.  Nobody wanted to talk, it stunk, and Argentina lost. :-(

We are going to Bamboo today with the zone. Its a all you can eat restuarante.

Yesterday I bore my testimony about my decision to serve a mission and I believe it went well.

Con Amor, Elder Blazzard
