Week 47: Paulina the Dog

Villa Mercedes

This week was great! We hit some of our goals and are working a lot more with the members.

This week on Monday we visited a less active family whose husband isnt married but wants to get baptized! He has a strong testimony. Right now were waiting for them to have their baby so they can start going to church and him and his son can be baptized! It was a great lesson

On tuesday we visited another family of 3 who we’ve only taught a few times but they committed to going to church this Sunday! They are a fun family, and they are related to one of the members so thats going to be a huge help!

Wednesday we went to Justo Daract in the morning, but all of our appointments fell through, and in the evening we left to san luis for a zone conference the next day. The funny thing is the dog paulina who follows us everywhere. Followed us into the BUS. so Elder Bustos had to carry her out haha.

Thursday was our zone conference and the last one with President and Hermana Goates. It was a sad day. They helped me a lot. He gave us life advice in this conference which was life changing. Its all about the temple. We also had intercambios (exchanges).

Friday we had intercambios with the zone leaders in san luis. I went with Elder Vejar and one of the doors we knocked we didnt even say anything he just invited us in. the easiest new investigator I’ve ever seen. They are an older couple, but love listening to the gospel so they let us share a message with them. That was the miracle of the day. We finished our intercambios and had a few more lessons in villa mercedes with Elder Machado.

Saturday we went to justo daract and visited some families with the branch president. We found a new investigator named Michael and he is sweet. We committed him to church!

4 investigators attended church on sunday! 1 in villa mercedes, and 3 in justo daract! Dario, our investigator in villa mercedes has 4 attendences already and has decided to be baptized. He is still a little uncertain with the date he has right now

Elder Machado army story of the week:

For a training, he had to stay in the same position aiming at the same point with his sniper until a bird passed by and he killed it. It took 72 hours for him to kill one. He couldnt even budge go to the bathroom or anything.

That’s the week! Love you all!

Elder Skonnard
