The work has almost stopped in this area. This last week we only had 2 lessons. But, we´re going to bring it back. This Friday there was an Emergency transfer. My companion Elder Alder, left to another area, the Elder that was there went to another area, and the Elder from that area is now my companion in Baradero, Elder Dewitt. He´s from Arizona. We get along well as well.

We´re going to the Zoo as a mission tomorrow, but because we had meetings today and we´ll be going early tomorrow, we have to stay in the house of the Zone Leaders for two days because we´re so far out into Provincia. And I forgot my camera.

We still have no investigators. One of the most important things you can do as a member is Home and Visiting Teaching. The reason it is so difficult for people to do it is because the adversary knows that Home and Visiting Teaching done well is perhaps the most effective form of Christlike service within the Church. It is designed to serve every member of a unit spiritually and temporally. It is the most effective way to prevent a member from going less active, and could very well be the only way the leaders become aware of the needs of the members. This work is vital. Please do it.

Please also invite people to hear from the missionaries. The ideal situation is that members invite others to hear from the missionaries and are present during the same. This is easiest on everyone, it softens the hearts of those who will listen, the missionaries don´t stress as much, and the investigators immediately have someone to rely on and ask questions.
