So this week was a little bit of a week of miracles!! 

One of our awesome members, Cecilia, has a daughter named Chiara that always complained about her baptism, she said that the water was freezing and that there were bugs floating in the font. So with that whole story we kinda assumed that she was a baptized member. Well, it turns out that the baptism wasn't ever recorded, so we arranged everything and baptized her this weekend! She was really excited for it!!! We planned with the bishop and had the baptism after sacrament meeting yesterday.

After the whole service was done we had quite a few people tell us that the spirit was stronger in the baptism than in the sacrament meeting! It was really cool to take what would have been just a normal baptism and see it turn into a really spiritual, edifying experience! It'll be something that Chiara and her whole family will remember for a long time!! 

So in other news, transfers are this week. I'll find out on tuesday if I am staying or leaving. I really don't wanna leave! But I might be going! I really hope not, but if I do leave I'll love the new place I have! 

Anyways, I love you all!! I hope you all have an awesome week!

Luke's Letter Dated September 15, 2014

Buen día a todos!!

Here in Argentina we are coming out of winter and into spring! Everything is starting to get green and I'm loving it! 
This week we had the opportunity to go to the temple!! We were able to go with our converts and investigators and enjoy the gardens that they have there! It really was an awesome experience to enjoy the temple and feel the spirit. My companion and I had a little bit of time to just go and take pictures of the temple. That was really cool, I love how beautiful and peaceful the temple is. 
The temple is something that we often take for granted back at home, we have a number of temples within a short distance from our house. These members here have to plan a whole day to go with their ward just once a month. In some places the members don't even get to go once a month. It makes me think of something that President Monson  said,“Those who understand the eternal blessings which come from the temple know that no sacrifice istoo great, no price too heavy, no struggle too difficult in order  to receive those blessings."

I hope to be able to treasure the temple like we should when I finish my mission. I hope that all of you would treasure it like we should.

I love you all!!
Have a great week!

Luke's Letter Dated September 8, 2014

​This week was pretty awesome!! We were able to see the baptism of two of our investigators this week!

This family is really cool. We found them knocking doors one day and it turned out that the mom was a less active member. Right off the bat she told us that she had a few people to baptize, but that it wasn't going to be easy. We accepted the challenge. We met her husband and the rest of the family​. The family loved us, but the husband was a little shy and didn't want to talk to us that much. Well, after a while of trying to set up a lesson with them we finally were able to teach him. In the lesson he said that he didn't want to get baptized. My companion told him "Well two years ago you didn't want to get married either, but look at you now!"  That was all he needed to change his mind. He accepted a baptisimal date for two weeks from then. We also invited their daughter to be baptized, she accepted like crazy! The parents wanted to wait for a little while. Well the bishop had some different ideas than that, so he had a talk with them, and they decided that Ariel and Lucia needed to be baptized ASAP. 
So we got them all interviewed and baptized them on saturday night!!

Sunday morning was the time for their confirmations. But before the confirmations three of their four kids recieved baby blessings, then Ariel and Lucia were confirmed. What a great sacrament meeting!! 

They have a goal to be sealed in one year from now. I'm so glad that we were able to help them and work with their family!! It was really a blessing and a lesson for me!!

This saturday we are going to the temple with them and with the ward, it should be an awesome experience for everyone!

Anyways, that's pretty much my story for the week, 

I love you all!!!!
