Week 99

Well not too much happened this week. We have been teaching a lot of people, but we haven’t found anyone that wants to progress super fast. But we have like 2 people that will for sure get baptized, so we are super animated for them.

We had a lady come to church this last week, but she didn’t really like it. Pucha, but what can you do? Not everyone is open to new things. Also Joana came to church too, so she is making a habit for when she gets married she can keep going to church.

Things are going great here. I love the mission, and I love the people here in Argentina. Presidente just got back from doing conferences, and I guess he will have us help with the conferences here close by. But things are going great here.

Well that’s all for now,

Week 98

Well not a lot has happened this week. We had the leader conference, and that turned out great. We had a lot of things that we wanted to share with everyone, but we didn’t have time to cover everything. We even had the conference a full day.

Also we have been finding a lot of people because we didn’t go with Presidente to go do the conferencias in the south so we had a lot more time to focus on our area. We have found like 3 people that will get baptized, but they are all going to take a bit of time.

Also I only have one pic for today, and I’ll explain it to you all one of these days.

Well that’s all for now,

Week 97

Well this week seemed like a really long week, but we did have a family come to church that wants to get baptized. They already love the church, but they just need to get married. The good news is that they want to. Bad news is that they have to go back to Paraguay to do the tramites [formalities].

Also the new missionaries all got here, so it was pretty crazy here. This next week we have a conference that we are planning on doing. It’s going to be great!

Well that’s all for now.

Week 96

Well this week we went to Bariloche to help out over there. I did intercambios with Elder Pineda de México and Elder Vera de Chile. We put a baptismal date with Cristian (there's a foto). There was a good amount of snow there too, so that was kind of cool. Elder Pineda is going home this week and Elder Vera is just starting the mission. Elder Vera will be a great missionary.

We also did some visits in our area. I showed my card for my Eagle Scout award to a guy here that is crazy for scouts, and he loved it. I took a pic of it, and I think he wants to do something for his scouting program here that’s similar now.

Well that’s about it. The work is going slow in our area. Hopefully we can get some time to get everything going here in Limay so we can baptize some more people.

Well that’s all for now.

Week 95

Well not much happened this week. We went to Plaza Huincul to help with an activity with the youth. Also I saw my old Comp, Elder Mendoza, so that was fun. Me and my comps gave talks at the activity, and then the next day we took a group of kids out to go contacting to give them an experience of the mission. It was a good activity.

Other than that we have been trying to plan a conference with all the liders that will last a whole day. We need to capaciate [train] everyone because they are all pretty young in the mission. Other than that we did very little visitas por esta semana. And we have transfers this week so we will be doing a lot of things with Presidente.

Well that’s about it for the week.

Love you All- Elder Newman

Week 94

Well this week was a little crazy. We were doing intercambios with a lot of other missionaries because President was doing interviews. So we went with them to see how the missionaries were working and what we could do to better help capacitate [train] them. So I’ve got a lot of pics that we took while on the trip. We passed by Rincon, Chos Malal, Zapala, y Plaza Huincul. I saw a lot of old friends, but I didn’t get very many pics with them.

Also, we are trying to contact a ton of people, and in the 3 days we were in their areas we found a lot of people that were really prepared, especially in Rincon. Yep, and one of our investigators that we talked to came to church, and he really liked it. He will get baptized here in a bit.

Well that’s about all for the week.

Love you all-
Elder Newman

Week 93

Well this week was pretty crazy. I am now back in Neuquén, and I am with Elder Stuart and Elder Ortiz as Assistant. They called me early to get me trained before Elder Stuart goes home in three weeks. Well that’s about all the news I have. I just got here, and we are doing a lot of things here to help the mission. Hopefully next week I’ll have more to share, but I don’t know our investigators that well here. But ya, we will be doing a lot of stuff with a lot of missionaries so I'll have a lot of photos. Well that’s about it.

Love you all.....Elder Newman

Saying adios to Elder Nelson and the families in San Martin.

 And he's back in the office in Neuquen!
