We Talk of Christ, We rejoice in Christ, We prophesy of Christ...

Wow I do not have tons of time to write this week!

So I'll just tell a quick story from my week and then send some pictures. This week we had a lot of rain and not a lot of open doors. We actually got to Thursday without having been able to teach a single lesson. However we had planned a game night with a member family and even though it was raining we were still able to go. We got there and one of the young women from the family had invited a friend from school to the activity. We were able to play some games, eat some ice cream and then share a brief but powerful scripture that summarizes in one our faith in Christ:

2 nefi 25:26- Y hablamos de Cristo, nos regocijamos en Cristo, predicamos de Cristo, profetizamos de Cristo y escribimos según nuestras profecías, para que nuestros hijos sepan a qué fuente han de acudir para la remisión de sus pecados.

(Here it is in English for all us non Spanish Speakers: 2 Nephi 25:26  And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.)

Whoops, that's in Spanish. oh well. The experience was a very positive one and the young lady accepted the invitation to learn more about the gospel. Working in close coordination with the members of the church is essential to help people experience the gospel in a non-confrontational way- and always results in a higher degree of curiosity and openness in the people who are being prepared to receive the gospel in their lives.

Have a good week, I included some photos.

Another note from an e-mail Dallin sent me:

I am now officially a fan of "Racing Club", a professional Argentine football team that was champion of the Argentina league this year. They are probably the third biggest club in the nation; the classic two are River Plate Athletic Club and Club Atletico Boca Juniors- sort of like the maple leafs and the Montreal Canadians- but racing is pretty important too and I like it for a variety of reasons. anyways hopefully they'll win the south america cup (called "libertadores" sort of like champions league in Europe) and then go on to the world cup of clubs. The Racing club was the first champion of the world cup of clubs. ever. ever. yeah. anyways, that's that. have a good week,
