I missed a week, and I'm in José C. Paz so I don't have my adapter to add photos.

That week there was a conference held in Buenos Aires West with two Zones from each of the three Buenos Aires Missions. Elder Evans, the Head of the Missionary Department spoke to us for a number of hours. We had to take two breaks. He had discussions with missionaries in front of everyone, and that fueled the conversation. He said that this generation has the entire Gospel of Jesus Christ to work in, namely Faith, Repentance, Baptism, Receiving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End.

His wife introduced the last hour of his talk focused on the Family. He said that there is a lot revealed concerning the Family, and a great deal is found in "The Family: A Proclamation to the World." He said that now more than ever we need to know the Doctrine of the Family. He said that some people think that the Church's stance that marriage is between a man and a woman is just policy. He then proceeded to define the Resurrection, Immortality, and Eternal Life. He said that we will not just be resurrected, but it will be a "glorious resurrection. The Prophet Joseph Smith said that even a telestial resurrection is a glory beyond our comprehension. The glories that we receive will reflect our specific and individual actions in our life. Even those who inherit a place in the Celestial Kingdom will not implicitly receive Eternal Life. Eternal Life, as we know is life like our Heavenly Father, or in other words, we will live like Him with our spouses and posterity. If Satan can destroy the family by getting people to believe that marriage can be whatever you want, he can effectively destroy the possibility of Eternal Life. As the Proclamation states, "All human beings—male and female—are created in the image of God. Each is a beloved spirit son or daughter of heavenly parents, and, as such, each has a divine nature and destiny. Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose." He said, "I am a son of heavenly parents, and it brings me such joy." He said that living as a family after this life will be the most comfortable and natural thing we could experience.

This week we had interviews with President. He told me that this transfer or the next I would be senior companion. He then called me in a few minutes later and said that from that moment on I would be a senior companion, and that Elder Berrío and I would remain senior companions together in Floresta.

Alexander, one of our investigators left for Perú this Sunday, but has plans to be baptized when he comes back in two months.

I've been moved to Pablo Nogues 1 in the Zone Islas Malvinas. My companion is Elder Chriss from Utah and is a District Leader. It's outside of Capital in Provincia. It looks like it will be hot this week.
