Parque Del Sur

Hola Todos!


Big News!! My new comp is Elder De La Rosa and he is from the Dominican Republic! Yes, I have already talked to him about Sammy Sosa. GO CUBS!!! But Elder De La Rosa is a stud.  He is almost 21 so he is very mature.  He came to the mission WAY PREPARED! I am way excited that he is my comp.  He is a good guy, he´s going to help me out even more with my Spanish!

Well, I am finally out of Esperanza. My birthplace here in Argentina has already come to a close.  Parque del Sur is awesome.  I like the city feel.  There are always tons of people in the streets.  Which is perfect for missionaries!  Presidente Perez, our mission president, has been focusing on having faith!  The Scripture in D&C 33 that if we open our mouths, they will be filled.  What a great promise!  So I have been trying to exercise my faith and talk to EVERYONE!  It´s been funny because many people in the streets here think that I am from Brasil. hahaha But the promise from our Heavenly Father is so true. It is really awkward to begin to talk to people.  I don´t know what to say or how to speak very good haha But it is amazing how ideas and words come to your head to share the gospel.  We have been dropped here in Parque del Sur with no investigators and no direction, but we have already found great success in these few short days from opening our mouths.  God is good!  And He ALWAYS prepares the way and ALWAYS fulfills his promises.  We already have 6 or 7 appointments set up from just talking to everyone in the street.  We shouldn´t doubt or have fear, because the Lord is with us.  Open your mouth, and it will be filled!!!

I am so grateful for the mission.  I am excited for the adventure ahead of me and all the new things that I am going to learn.  I am grateful that the Savior is by my side and the Heavenly Father continues to bless me abundantly.  I love you all! Have a great week.

Con amor,

Elder Maynard
