It was a Good Week!


Como estàs?  Argentina Santa Fe is a great place.  You all should visit it one day.  Luckily for me, It`s still my home for the next 16 months!  There is a temperature that is rather high and a humidity that causes everyone to sweat.  Everyone is friendly and we all complain about the heat together.  While complaining about heat, we drink hot sugar plant water, it`s called mate.  It`s pretty funny and I love it. My poor new companion has asked me various times this week with a concerned voice ´´Elder, where are we?´´ and I have responded ´´Argentina.´´  That`s just a quick example that I haven`t lost my sarcasm. Good thing or bad thing? I don`t know haha
Jonathan is doing great!  He talks a lot more and is beginning to smile more!  So awesome!  I remember the first week that we went to pick him up for church, and my comp and I told him, ´´If you come to church with us today, it will change your life.´´ It has been amazing to see the Lord fulfill our promise!  We also met a new investigator this week, her name is Vanesa, the first lesson she accepted a baptism invitation!  She gives the most uplifting compliments.  She says that we bring a peace and tranquility that she has never felt.  She says she always has a good day after our visits.  I know it is the Spirit and the Lord providing her with all these blessings but it is nice to have her talk good about us.  I am excited to see the future with her.  She`s a great lady.  Like most Argentines she has to get married, but God is working miracles and it will be done!  We are trying to talk with everyone in the street, especially sharing the message of the Restoration.  We have asked people if we can say a prayer, right on the spot, to know if it`s true.  A few people have invited us in, and we have kneeled in their living room, and we offered a pray to God to know the truth of what we are teaching.  It`s so cool.  Those who have accepted the prayer, have also accepted a time for us to return, and they usually send us off with a smile on their face.  The gospel is true.  I know that God has answered the prayer to these people in that very moment.  We will see if they will choose to act on their answer.  The future is bright in Santa Fe.
Well, I love you all.  People always ask if I miss my family.  I always respond, ´´Sì, les extraño un poco pero sè que las familias son eternas.´´  I am grateful for this gospel and that I get to live with you awesome people forever.  Have a great week, enjoy the snow, enjoy the mountains, enjoy rootbeer, enjoy the gospel.

Con amor,
Elder Maynard
