Rio Gallegos is getting better. I'm more used to knocking doors all day, and we had success finding this week. Since I know that 90% of the people only read the first couple lines of my blog, I'm going to include my spiritual experience now...
Yesterday, we were headed to an appointment, and it fell through. We were really tired of contacting, so I didn't know what to do. A while ago, Heavenly Father promised me that he would guide me where I needed to go in the mish, but lately, I've been a bit frustrated, 'cause I wasn't seeing any guidance. However, because of the frustration, I started reading talks on personal revelation. Yesterday, when we didn't know what to do, I decided to put what I've learned to practice. So I said a little prayer, asking God to guide me, and instantly a street came to mind. "La Mañana". I thought to myself "Nah, we already hit it hard there last week, and there wasn't anything. Then a name came to mind. "Pablo". "What? He was just some random guy that set a cita fija (appointment) with us and then wasn't home, and I'm pretty sure he doesn't want it." But that's what I got. So I prayed again, asking God if what I felt was right, and what did I get. Tiny feeling. Tiny. Like a light bulb at the bottom of the ocean. But I was like "What the heck, faith, Boba Fett! I've got a feeling, so follow me, and if it falls through, I have no idea what were gonna do." So we go to the house, and Pablo was home. We get in, and have a de diez lesson. He is literally so prepared. Recently quit drugs and drinking, is quitting smoking, just barely separated with his girlfriend, and wants to find God. LETS GO! God is most definitely in my corner, as well as all the other missionaries out there. As Latter-day Saints, if we reach out to God, He will come through for us. So that's my experience, hope you enjoyed it.
Other dope things that happened this week. I BOUGHT PROTEIN POWDER!!!! I had months of reintegros (reimbursements) that just barely came through, so I was swimming in cash, and decided to aprovecharlo (take advantage of it). There's a pharmacy close to the pensh that sells protein powder, so I bought a huge tub of it. VANILLA ICE CREAM FLAVOR WAS NEVER BETTER. #churchistrue.
other things... the members are dope, I still suck at futbol, but not too bad... I'd go into more depth, but I'm out of time, and still need to tell Dad that I love him. So that's it for today!!!
I LOVE YOU GUYS! Especially you Mom ;)
Keep on keepin' on Familia Jimenez, celestial kingdom is only half a plan of salvation away ;)

The scariest, ghetto apartments. THAT'S MY AREA BOI!
Me with a nuevo (new investigator) named Blas.
He's a capo, and wanted to take a pic, so I was like "Dale" haha
Dope sign by the street, hopefully I sent the good pic,
but one can't see with these crappy computers
I told him that I hoped he passed by it often and remembered to smile.
It's in a different area. There is a kiosco here named "Smile" though. But it has porn in the window. So I'm always looking at the other side of the street when we walk by. Maybe next time I'll smile while doing though LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
The sign says, "A day without laughing is a lost day!"
Blisters on my hand that I got while doing heavy labor with a shovel
(the other hand is now worse lol)
Me wearing the corset of one of the Hermanas.
Don't worry I will explain later, but if she sees this, she will murder me,
so I'm gonna delete it from my camara LOL
