Another Week of (Not So) Adventurous Adventures en Metán!


​​Hope all is well! This week was pretty tranquila except for some gastronomical distress, haha. 

​​The highlight of our week was definitely finding a family of new investigators. The mom is Noemí and she lives with her father-in-law and 4 kids. Her husband is currently in jail and she has a lot of problems. Our first visit with her she was super sad and stressed and we shared a scripture in Matthew 11: ¨Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.¨ When we returned for the second visit she was like a different person. She was happy and she said she was praying every day and felt so much more calm. She and her family assisted ​[in English that would be "attended" :)] ​an activity we had in the church on Saturday and went to all 3 hours of church Sunday and loved it.

Today Hermana Ostler asked me what is a miracle that I have seen in my life, and I told her that one of the biggest miracles is seeing a change in myself for the better. It is the same change that Noemí is just now starting, a change that is only possible when we live the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Today for P-Day we made pizza. Cooking in Argentina is always an adventure! For like 15 whole mins we were just trying to open a jar of ají [chili peppers] (I think it's like pepperchini?) but at least we got to know a lot of our neighbors trying to find someone with a can opener and/or pliers.

Well I love you all and hope you have a fantastic week!!!!!

Hermana Hooke :)
