7 O how great is the a nothingness of the children of men; yea, even they are bless than the dust of the earth.
8 For behold, the dust of the earth moveth hither and thither, to the dividing asunder, at the command of our great and everlasting God.
WOWOWOWOWOW. this week has been pretty sweet. we had a lot of people in church this week. there were 120ish people... definitely a record for this year.
but really, this week was really cool. a lot of stuff happened.
1. the noche de hogar como barrio.
This week, us as missionaries held a family home evening. It was in the church and it was really cool. We talked about the profets and acted out some of them from the book of mormon. I was Alma the older, My companion was Nefi, Elder Coria was king benjamin. Elder Conidaris was Abinadi. So we acted out the profets and told the stories of each of them. King Benjamin had to get on top of the basketball hoop to be able to have his tower to preach from. I was dressed in all white because i baptized in the waters of mormon. Abinadi was in his jail just before his trial before king noah, and nefi was the tour guide. but yeah. we had a lot of people show up. and there were wa lot of investigators as well. :D
2. my comp got bit by a dog.
My beloved comp got attacked by a german shepherd this week... Things get CRAZY in argentina. We were talking outside with a part member family and my comp decided to lean up against the fence. Then out of nowhere came this huge german shepherd and put his mouth through the fence to end up biting my companion in the back.... And my comp didn´t put any excuses to not work... he got out a spare shirt, and put it on, and we went to the next appointment... he´s crazy!! but he´s a trooper :D
Natali is getting baptized this next sunday! im way excited. She had her interview and she passed with flying colors.
Luis told us that he wanted to be baptized... which that doesn´t happen that often. Usually we have to ask the people if they want to do it... but no, he asked us :D so yeah, he´ll be getting baptized next week if he can change a couple of things. we´ll be working a ton with him!
5. elder conidaris
Elder Conidaris is going home next week and he´s goign to go visit the family! So be looking out for him! :D
6. new families
We´ve had 4 new families move in to Alta Gracia so it has been really cool to see the new excitement that there is in the ward.
7. family from idaho
Some random famliy from idaho was visiting here this week. They´re going to be here for the next month visiting their family that lives all around in argentina. So today we might play football with all of them :D
So yeah, these are the highlights of this week! I hope you all have a great week! :D Do your visiting/home teaching visits!!
Love, Elder Gray
