Semana Pasada‏ Week 12

Family and Friends:


This week was incredible. Despite the security problems and the set backs
with time, we worked as hard as we possibly could and saw some amazing
results! We visited a family of inactives, and did not know that the brother
and sister in law, who were present, were members of the church as well.
The hombre wanted nothing to do with the lessons. His wife told us that he
had his Santos and believed in Gauchito Gil and wanted nothing to do with
the church. The wife said she would listen, but had her beliefs and had no
desire to change, but wanted to lishis was the second time we passed
for their house. At the end of the lesson, the wife told her husband to show
us his church pictures. He brought outen. Tt pictures of his baptism, a halloween
ward activity, and his wife in baptismal clothing as well. We got to talking
and we could just tell that the spirit moved him. He told us that si o si he
would be at church Sunday. He traveled the long, hot hour and a half ride
with the rest of the branch in the Cumbi to the district conference. Because
of this, his Uncle, his sister, and his sons are all preparing for baptism. He and
his wife are activating themselves as well. I am so excited for them! We are
commanded to teach to all that will receive us, and I think its so important to
give people the chance to feel the spirit and decide if they want the message
before we take their agency and tell ourselves that they havent been prepared yet.

There was a civil unrest in our province as well as Chaco. The cops went on strike.
So the state basically said to the city that it was taking away all of the city{s
governing power. So people were angry and forming mobs in the streets and
the town center. So we got an emergency call that we werent allowed to leave
our pensions on Tuesday. We were allowed to leave the rest of the week, but
we had to be in our pensions by 7. The members, especially an inactive that is
a politician, told us that we were crazy for walking in the streets... But we were
safe and everything turned out well. I got bored of reading the Liahona and the
Book of Mormon for hours on end, so I gave Ramon a makeover. Elder Ramon
has had a change of heart! So proud of him. Things are better this week. We
have to be in our pensions before 8 instead of 9:30, so a little bit more time to
work. Despite all of this, we have witnessed miracles! Blessings of working hard!

Elder Ramon kills all the spiders for us, our dog, and our pension!

I love you all! Stay awesome and remember the Savior during this time of the
year!!! He loves you!

Elder Johnson

P.S. We are going to start singing Christmas hymns instead of clapping up until

Christmas. SO EXCITED!!!!!
