March 1, 2016

Yesterday we didn't end up writing because we were in C贸rdoba for concilio. At the begging of all the leaders we got together and talked about what needs to happen in the mission to keep it progressing. We also had a Broadcast with Elder Bednar. Between the two things it was pretty spiritual. In all I think one of the biggest things I learned was about the agency we have. Talked about how the questions we ask make people objects and not agents. Kinda like a yes or no question. You make people play "guess what is in my head". When you actually let people learn on their own you realize more of how the spirit teaches people.
This week we had only 2 of the kids come to church. Gabriel and Walter. They both have this coming Saturday for their baptisms. In church they changed up a lot of stuff with the leaders. We have a new lider misional. His name is Gaston Reynoso. He is the guy that always helps us out. He lives in the building right by ours and is super cool. Good friend now. We go there to wash our clothes.
This week we have to plan for the zone meeting Friday and the baptisms Saturday. Then next Tuesday we have another conference with a few other zones in C贸rdoba so we will be traveling back there. Love the mission. Love the area. Comp is dope, and the fields are ready. 
We have found a bunch of cool people this last week but one that hit the heart the most was Marta and her kids. Marta is 29 with three kids. The oldest is 15. She had a kid when she was 15 and has had a rough life. She lives in this shack of a house and when we contacted her it had rained the night before and the floor of her house had some water on it.  But the worst was that she doesn't have a bed frame so the mattress just sits on the ground. All 4 of them sleep on this mattress and don't have hardly anything. The oldest son is a little special and her son that is around 9 can't talk. She has a little 2 year old boy that keeps her going. It's super humbling to see that and she is starting to see the hand of the Lord in her life. We invited her to pray and when she prayed she started thanking the Lord for everything she had... I mean if she would have made other choices in life she wouldn't have been in that situation but definitely cool how the Lord prepares people for the gospel. 
Hope everyone is doing good and has a good week. Talk to you next week.
