"The Blood of Christ has Power"
This week has been awesome! We traveled around the missiona bit with president to do interviews wich was fun. We will keep going with that for the next two weeks. My comp and I have been doing some follow up with all the missionaries of what they are putting into practice after the zone conferences. It´s gone well, everyone is starting to understand better our focus on teaching repentance and baptizing converts which is good. It really is so important.
We had a few days to work in the area this week too wich was awesome!! We are being very blessed. On Thursday we had one of the biggest rainstorms that I´ve seen here in Argentina. It flooded all the streets almost to our knees, it was pretty cool. We kept contacting people in spite of the rain, trying to help people move things inside and stuff like that, everyone just looked at us like we were a couple of crazies jaja. But it was fun, I love rainstorms like that.
On Saturday we did exchanges with a few zone leaders and it went really well! I was with an Argentine elder named Elder Pontelli. He´s a new zone leader and was a little nervous I think, but he´s awesome! Together we ended up finding 6 new investigators. It was a good day. The last guy that we found is named Rodolfo. We were walking down the street and we saw him out walking his dogs. He had a tank top on that said in big English letters on the front "The Blood of Christ has Power". Of course we had to stop and talk to him. We told him we liked his shirt and asked him if he knew what it said. He said no, haha. we explained it to him and then went straight into a lesson right there on the street. It was awesome!! Very spiritual, we taught the restoration and in the end he committed to be baptized in March! We´ll see how things go, but he seems like a great person, I really hope that he makes it to his date. Cool experiences :)
It was a great week!! I love this work, there's nothing like preaching repentance to the descendants of Lehi. I hope you all have a great week! I love you all!
Les quiero, Elder Burton
