Say ¡Bienvenidos a Gonzalo Quiroga!

Hello everybody,
    I dont even know where to start. Seriously, like I said last time, every week just gets better and better. Sounds like everybody is doing great there as well. Dallin and Amy are going back to Logan. That is so awesome and exciting!! Tan Man, you got a black eye in basketball. Nice! But dont worry, the girls like black eyes haha! Jordan got asked to Prom? Thats crazy, you cant go to prom!! Wait until your senior prom and ill be your date. I dont trust those other boys with my little sister haha. Dad, I have no idea where the closest Costco is. But we actually have a Walmart in our zone. The only one in all of Mendoza. But it´s in the Hermanas area which is kind of far, so I havent been able to go. And also dad and asado isnt at all like your mexican chicken. They dont really use seasonings here. They just cook the chicken or carne on a little metal grill over hot coals. But they cover the carne and chicken in salt. Its a different kind of taste, but pretty good. But the thing is you have to do it right or it doesnt turn out very good. So I need to find the best to learn from him!! Sounds like U of A has picked up the slack from losing Brandon Ashley. What a bummer!! But they sure are going to make some noise in March Madness!! I didnt know that the 2 other Elder Wengerts, Sky and Easton were made District Leaders as well. That is so awesome!! Representing!! Eastons email sounds a lot like here. We have the rich parts of the area and the poor. Houses from super big nice houses with the nice cars to the houses made from sticks and plastic covering weaving in and out of the sticks to help keep the wind out. Its kind of sad!! 
     Well, we had Gonzalos baptism and it was so awesome!! I love that kid. He reminds me of a boy version of Janae. Such a sweet and quite kid. His faces just lights up when he see us missionaries. Elder Christensen got to baptize him and I gave the talk on the Holy Ghost. I was so happy for Elder Christensen. It was his first time doing the actual baptismal ordinance. Truly a special experience.
   This week was just full of other miracles as well. Pablo and Bryan are both doing great at quiting smoking and are both looking really good for their baptismal date for this Saturday. Leandro and Malena both came to church again yesterday and we went to their house last night and taught them along with Malenas mom and little sister. Malena is progressing nicely. She, and along with her mom and sister, commited to reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it. Also Leandro and Malena committed to getting married. So that should be happening pretty soon.
    But I think the biggest miracle of the week happened yesterday. A while back missionaries were teaching two sisters named Melisa and Monica and their boyfriends. They all wanted to get baptised but had to get married. But they kind of disapeared. Well yesterday we walk into the chapel and sitting in the back was Melisa, Carlos (her boyfriend), and Melisas Mom also named Monica. But they asked us to go by last night and bless Monicas baby that she just had 4 days ago. (The baby is fine dont worry haha). So we went by and were able to bless little baby Emma. The cutest little girl. But we were able to talk to the mom quite a bit as well. She told us how they went back to chile, where they are from, for a little bit. There, the moms youngest daughter was baptised into the church and she attended church a few times with her daughter. She told us that she felt so special went she entered the church building, that she loves how loving the members are, and that she knows the church is true and wants to get baptized. I about jumped onto the temple to do some kind of celebration dance. But I kept my cool. She may be living with a man that she isnt married to, so we need to teach a few things to her and prepare a little bit more. But she has the want and desire which is important. The Lords hand is truly in this work with us. He is just working through us instruments. What a privilege!!
    Well, im just out of time and we need to head out to play some fĂștbal. Im also going to teach the a bunch of missionaries here how to play skum, so that will be super fun! Thank you so much for all of your love and support, I cant thank you enough. Have a great week and Ill talk to you next week. I love you!!
