Luke's Letter Dated October 14, 2013

Wow. These last 8 months have flown by. Looking back it's all gone soo fast! I just hope that the next 16 months are slower than the first 8. 

This week has been really really good We've been working like crazy! One of the days we had planned to go to the edge of our area to contact some former investigators. We went out there, it was a really long walk. We got there and none of them were home or would let us in the door. So we decided to do some tracting in the area. We didn't have much luck. We were just turning on to another street when a guy started hollering at us telling us to come over there. We got over there and he was suuuuper drunk. We got talking to him a little bit, he told us his name was Sergio Lucas and that the missionaries had come to his house before. He told us he was going to come to church on Sunday with us. We talked to him for a minute and told him we'd come back when he was sober. So that's what we did. 

Two days later we came back and talked to him. We taught him about the Restoration of the Gospel and he was so excited! We invited him to be baptized the end of this month, and he said yes. I've never seen anyone so excited about it than him! He's a boss!! He came with us to church and absolutely loved it! He's already given us referrals to a couple of his friends in the area too! He's a capo! 

So I'm loving Argentina.

I always thought i'd miss music on a mission. Especially outside the country cause I thought I wouldn't hear any music in English. But that's not a problem. Argentines like their music. Loud. Most houses have their massive speakers faced out the window blasting music. And a lot of the times that music is from the states. One of those little tender mercies (: 

The dogs down here are crazy. They're everywhere. In like one block it's not unusual to see like 20 dogs sleeping in the street. Not on the sidewalks, not in peoples yards, In the streets. It's kinda funny. Every now and then they'll like follow us too. It's pretty cool. Most of them are pretty nice, they just need a bath. Bad. lol. 

I'm loving it. I'm gaining weight. Not cool. We eat like a ton of pastas. And lunch is like the big meal here, not dinner, so my eating habits are like horrible. I stuff myself at 1, Then am starving at like 9. So I eat cereal. haha. Healthy, I know. 

We're looking forward to a good week! I hope you all have a good week too!!

Love you all!
