Shorter Year Mark


This week was great because we were very busy running around to check on references and referrals in our large geographical area. We received a great familia reference this past week and they are an awesome family who seem to be teachable to el espiritu de Dios.  An awesome referral. The transfer calls are coming up next week and I think that I will be leaving for sure because I have heard that the president likes to keep two missionaries in an area for three transfers and then take them out. I am doing very well and am happy (for Mom ) :-)

Sorry so short but I have to fill out a lot of paper work ... they are trying to streamline things. (note by  j. blazzard - that seems ironic as streamline !== paper work)

Teaching Repentance and Baptize

Hello All.
Yesterday was the Church's World Wide Missionary Conference.  I sure Packer and Garrett will talk about it Monday. I was really awesome and I liked the focus of 'teaching repentance' and 'baptize converts'. We received a letter from our mission president that indicated that we no longer can baptize children under 18 years of age unless their parents are also getting baptized.

Well besides all of that ... things are going well and of course, with the season there are a lot of storms ... like every night. I have been more bold in our lessons and it is working nicely and the work is more enjoyable.

Things are going well. I am in Santa Rosa right now for a zone p-day. I have been here since Tuesday morning of this week.  I went on division with Elder Da Sila from Brazil and the exchange was fun. In Acha we taught a lot of lessons with in-actives and actives and this resulted in about 40 people coming to church this last Sunday, the most I have seen since I have been here.

Things are good, our investigators are progressing, so that makes me happy.
Love Elder Blazzard

Pasta Roni

Hola Todos!

This week was great because three (3) investigators showed up at church on Sunday and they enjoyed the services and people. We will try to baptize them soon ... they are ready. Things are going good, I finally received my Christmas package. Eating that Pasta Roni was heaven.

I am focusing a lot of my energy on improving and perfecting my Spanish so that I can teach more effectively. I love you all and miss you a ton.

Nuevo Ano

Hey guys it was really good to see you all (via Skype last week). This week has been really
hot, I mean really really hot. (It is summer in Argentina). I sleep with bottles of ice it is that insane. Don't worry though because we just installed air conditioning in our flat ... so yeah awesome relief.

Yesterday we went to Quehue to have lunch with the bishop and his wife. He showed us is M4 airsoft gun that is all metal. It is cool. We also helped a falcon (? what). That morning we planted lettuce, with la familia Sosa.

Everything is going well. I heard my package has arrived (after a month) but I will not be able to get it until next Tuesday.

Love you all, Elder Blazzard
