Coldness in the toes of the earth
Hey everyone, Tis I, your beloved child, brother, broskie, lover, and missionary, Elder Trayner. This week was relatively boring, although I did enjoy the general conference thouroughly. My favorite talk was by Elder Robinson about being and doing. Helped me realize a few things I can do to become a better person or being and also how to more effectively help others here in argentina become better people, and more like their Savior and Father in Heaven. Anyways, we had a pretty decent family home evening for the branch on Friday where we watched finding faith in Christ, listened to a few testimonies, and then ate some pizza and stuff. It was a pretty good activity. Hopefully we can keep doing them and getting better attendance each time. Anyways, it continues getting colder, and this past week was freezing.... umm... what else... not many of our investigators made it to the conference, which was super lame, but surely they'll go next week and that we'll be able to find a lot of new investigators this week. Hmm... I don't have much else to say. That is so awesome that Forrest is going to be baptized! Epic. Well.. we keep working hard here and we're hoping to see the results soon, just gotta keep our head up and try to get everyone to feel the love of Savior here, because if they don't feel that, the members are never going to do anything and people could get baptized, but they would just end up like all the converts from the past 2 years- inactive. Out of like 30ish converts in the past 2 years only 3 are active. It's horrible, but a bunch moved too. We're doing our best to get them back and get them over their offense or their laziness or whatever it is that is preventing them from going. Hopefully we'll also be able to have a baptism soon. Surely the Lord will help us do a miracle here if we keep working diligently with faith. Anyways, I love you all and hope you are all doing well. I testify to you that the true happiness is not in the world, but is in Jesus Christ, our Savior. Follow what He has shown and taught and you will find peace in your life. Love you guys. Until next week.
