Fuerza Que No Se Conoce Entre Los Hombres

Hola queridos!
Wow this week flew by, just like the previous 52 did.  The last Sunday was awesome! I love my family a ton!  Thanks for all of your love, support, and smiling faces.  My family is the best!  
Elder Pearson and I saw a group of kids playing basketball this week.  We set down our bags and asked if we could get a little game going.  It was 5 teenage Argentines against the American Warriors. (5 against 2)  The jump shot is a little rusty, but if I do say so myself, it is still pretty smooth.  We schooled these kids in two games and now they think that Mormon missionaries are pretty cool.  And they all now have a little picture of Jesus.  Spreading goodness by getting Buckets.  Everyone tell Luke Michael Maynard that ´´I get Buckets!´´ haha
We have been knocking hundreds of doors.  It is an adventure.  You just never know what you are going to get.  The Lord also provides the way, so with a little bit of faith, miracles happen.  We knocked on a door and a single mother of an 8 year old baby answered.  Her name is Carol and she kindly brought out chairs so that we could share the message of the restored gospel.  No one has been through a rush unless they have taught the Restoration to someone who has never heard it before.  It is the best feeling in the world.  The spirit testifies, EVERYTIME.  That being said, we asked Carol if she believed that it was true, and she said Yes.  She accepted an Invitation to be baptized and she wants to come to church! Vamos Israel!
There is nothing better than being a missionary.  I love Doctrine and Covenants 24:12.  It says that if we open our mouths to share the gospel, God will give us strength that isn´t known among men.  How cool is that?  God helps us and strengthens us so that we can bring the world His truth.  I invite everyone to be a missionary and find a referral within these next few weeks to the missionaries.  If you open your mouths, you will have strength that isn´t known among men!  That is the coolest thing that I have ever heard.  Go out there and be super heroes this week! I love you all tons! Have a great week!
