We went to the Mission Offices this last Tuesday and Today in Retiro in the Migrations Offices to work out residing in Argentina. All went well and soon I'll be legal if all goes well.

A baptism from November had been going through some very difficult times. She finally could come to be Confirmed and receive the Holy Ghost. It was a wonderful experience.

The family that we helped to reactivate is incredible. They are inviting their friends and employees to listen to the missionaries and we are finding many people though them. They are sent on doing whatever necessary to remain active when their daughter goes back to Bolivia and to be sealed in the temple.

We went to the dentist for Elder Mora Thursday morning.

I found a $2 peso coin on the ground one day while walking.

The space-bar on this keyboard doesn't work very well.

This week we had two baptisms. Bianca and Abraham. All went very well. They both wanted Elder Mora to baptize and for me to do the confirmations. After the baptism we went to a Peruvian restaurant with the Choque family. Peruvian food is some of the best in the world.

We've made great progress in the ward and we hope to keep up the pace.

One of the greatest fears members seem to have is that they will have to teach other people the Gospel. Don't worry about those things. The missionaries will teach. They work under those keys. They will ask for your testimony in their proper moments. The best things members can do is live the Gospel and invite others to come.

This week as we were walking between appointments, a young woman and her brother ran up to us asking where the building was. They are from Bolivia and just moved in with their parents who have been living here for a number of years. She learned about the church in Bolivia and has been active ever since. Her parents are members from their youth, but fell away before long they got married. They are all excited to come back to church, and the son is preparing to be baptized.

I'm slowly losing English. It's terrifying. Between all the Castellano, Guaraní, Portuguese, German and Korean (나는 집에 간다, there's a Korean family in the ward) my English is falling apart.

All is well in Zion; yea, Zion prospereth.
