This week went interesting. We've run out of investigators. We've been finding a number of less-actives and we've been working with them because they have family that are not members.

There is so much work to do. There is always someone to teach. As members we have the opportunity to help those within the Church to stay on the path the Lord has revealed. Home Teaching is perhaps the most indispensable program in the Church aside from administering to the poor and missionary work. If everything were to fall apart, the Priesthood responsibility of ministering and administering to members of the Church will always be upon us. I feel that the fulfillment of our Home Teaching assignments should be a high priority in our lives, our first and foremost calling within the Church.

We still haven't seen the Priesthood Session. We normally see it in the Zone Meeting following Conference, but it didn't happen.

This week we went to the Temple as a mission on Friday. It was a wonderful experience. On the bus ride home, we decided to stop in UniCenter to eat because it was on the way and then take a different bus that would take us just one block from our house. When we went to the Food Court, Nick, President's son came flying at us yelling "Elders!" Turns out every Friday evening President goes with his family to eat there.

Saturday we watched the afternoon session of conference with Ricardo in his house. Sunday we went to the Stake Center, and it rained for a good part of the day. We got a call that night from the Secretary saying that we needed to come to the mission home the next morning to have interviews with President. We went, and it was a great experience. President said that he felt the morning was inspired, and it was.

At the end of everything, Elder Fuentes and I are staying in López Camelo. I'm really happy because there's lots of work to do and I love this area.

This week Brenda was baptized on Saturday and confirmed the next day. It was my first baptism with only 1 church attendance. As a rule, we need to have 3, but we got an exception. This family is so ready for the Church. Ricardo and Cintia love it when we come over and we've had lunch and dinner with them a few times.

We celebrated Elder Ballestero's birthday this week. He's going home in a week. It's a tradition in Argentina to throw eggs and flour on people on their birthdays. They went over the top and threw mud as well.
