"antes hacía skate, yo..."

"wow, que buena onda..." 

hahahah well, happy week everybody! i have lots of good things, so buckle up! (: first, let me explain the title. there were some homies out skating on the cement field we have at the church, but they were totally smoking some doobies and we were like, uh uh chicos, ain't happenin´. so we went out there and said they could totally skate but that it would be better if they didn't smoke.. they were chill about it.. and then randomely I was like, I used to skateboard.. so it's fun to watch you guys. and some homie is like, wow, that is such good vibes. hahahahah wow. so weird. #icanttalktoboys.

so, on july 1, it was Canada Day, feliz día Canadians! haha thats mainly a shout out to my bb gurl makenzie. get it girl! Then, this week we had to say bye bye to the Lovells :( it was such a bummer! But, hey the new Presidente Casariego and his wife are super chill! we had a meeting with them called Meet The President! It was funny. they are such niceys! They are from Uruguay. Something cool that he shared was that we will have had success on our missions when our children and grandkids are sealed in the temple and strong in the gospel. TIGHT. I hope that all of my posterity gets way hyped on the gospel because I am aboouuuttt it!  
Also this week, we didn't have lunch and we decided to make some black beans... but we had to leave to contact, obviously. So we were like, okay we will just let it boil and when we come back in like 2 hours, it'll be fine! haha bad idea. So we left and I totally had a feeling while we were contacting to go back to the pension to check it out. but I ignored it because we were having lots of success. Well.. when we got back to the pensh, it was FULL of smoke. I am surprised that there wasn't a fire. We opened all the windows and when we left, we smelled like smokers. Our pension still smells like a casino, but when we are there, we keep the windows open. so crazy.. (this is the third time it has happened.. i think i have learned that it isn't a good idea to leave the stove or oven going. #idiotic)
this week we found 3 new families! Wahooooo. and two of them live in these freaky fancy neighborhoods. So we are hyped to start to teaching them (and kind of to enter a nicey house here... haha) But more than anything, we are excited to  have three families to teach (:

This week, Elder Thompson shared a way tight district meeting with us. Basically just trying animate us because we don't have a single baptismal date in the district :( But he shared some cool scriptures with us to help: (mosiah 28:3; alma 26) 

 Now they were desirous that salvation should be declared to every creature, for they could not bearthat any human soul should perish; yea, even the very thoughts that any soul should endure endlesstorment did cause them to quake and tremble.
 23 Now do ye remember, my brethren, that we said unto our brethren in the land of Zarahemla, we go up to the land of Nephi, to preach unto our brethren, the Lamanites, and they laughed us to scorn?  24 For they said unto us: Do ye suppose that ye can bring the Lamanites to the knowledge of the truth? Do ye suppose that ye can convince the Lamanites of the incorrectness of the traditions of their fathers, asstiffnecked a people as they are; whose hearts delight in the shedding of blood; whose days have been spent in the grossest iniquity; whose ways have been the ways of a transgressor from the beginning? Now my brethren, ye remember that this was their language.   And now, I ask, what great blessings has he bestowed upon us? Can ye tell?   Behold, I answer for you; for our brethren, the Lamanites, were in darkness, yea, even in the darkest abyss, but behold, how many of them are brought to behold the marvelous light of God! And this is the blessing which hath been bestowed upon us, that we have been made instruments in the hands of God to bring about this great work.  31 Now behold, we can look forth and see the fruitsof our labors; and are they few? I say unto you, Nay, they are many; yea, and we can witness of their sincerity, because of their love towards their brethren and also towards us.
So that helped me remember the promises I made to come here and help the people of Argentina and do my best to bring their souls to salvation. It was really nice (:
Happy 4th of July! Today we got to celebrate a little bit, we roasted some hot dogs, ate salad with ranch dressing, and apple crisp. haha It was very American, made me feel good. Also, I totally made homemade bread for the buns. for my very first time.. so, HOLLA for that. haha It was sooo good. (#wifeymaterial. ALL argentines say that once you can cook, you are ready to get married. lol. so silly)
Well, thats all I have time to write. but I was reading in D&C 101 about the second coming a bit and read verses 59-60.. made me hyped to keep preparing and repenting all of the days. Read it, and get everything in line (:
