¡Miracles come!

  Ok seriously, do i really look like im from Germany? I cant even begin to tell you how many times this week I have been stopped in the street and asked if im German (ok fine, if you look back far enough in my family tree you will find Germany and the name ´´Wengert´´ does come from there as well, but argentines dont know that haha). But this week has been crazy with the final game going on. But we didnt get to watch it this time. Right after church we were required to go straight back to the pench where we had to stay without leaving for any reason until this morning. But we were able to kind of tell what was happening to just listening to the roars of Benavidez. But in the end Messi couldnt pull it off this time. Oh well, it was fun while it last and now we will finally be able to get back to normal missionary life and have to plan our schedules around the games because nobody would let us in during those times haha!
   Sounded like such an eventful week!! The Family Reunion sounded like so much fun and I really want to see a video of those swim moves haha. The testimony of Grandpa sounded absolutely amazing and so powerful. We are so lucky to be part of such amazing and strong families. And how grateful i am to have the oppurtunity to carry with me both the Wengert and Allen names. I couldnt imagine life without family and i cant imagine life after without family. Heaven just wouldnt be heaven without each and eveyone of you! I am way excited for the reunion next year, mostly for the food haha. Oh Momma guess what?! I got the birthday package this week!! I seriously could not stop laughing at all of the calender pictures. And im not really sure where you got some of those ideas, but good job! I know it was so much work to do it, but i love it! Thank you so much!! Jordy Poo, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! How are you already 17, that cant be! Enjoy your day, eat lots of food for me, and next year we can celebrate our birthdays together ok!
    So this was a much better week. We started it off with a meeting to meet President and Hermana Goates. Wow, they are so amazing. And he even remembered meeting Dad, so i was pretty impressed about that. They are probably some of the most loving people i have ever met, and I am so excited to work with them! So we had a lot of meetings this week which didnt give us a whole lot of time to work in our area. But the time that we did have, we worked hard, and the miracles came! We found an awesome family this past week. Tuesday night it was another tough day working wise, and we decided to knock one more house before heading back to the pench and we found Roberto. We talked to him for a bit and got a return appoitment for Friday. So we came back on friday but nobody answered when we knocked. So we started to walk away and the door gets flung open. There was Teresea, the wife (well more like partner or girlfriend since they arent married) of Roberto who immediatly let us in. So we got to sit down with both of them and teach the restauration. We learned that Teresa is actually a member but hasnt gone to church in a super long time. But they have been feeling like their church they have been going to lacks certain things and were looking for another one to go to. Unfortunately they couldnt come to church yesteday, but we have a cita with them tonight. They are a way solid couple!
    Saturday morning we got invited to a youth conference of the 2 stakes here in San Juan. There, the youth got to listen to President and Hermana Goates about missionary work and after they got to come out for a bit with us missionaries and place some cards anda pamphlets. The youth here in Argentina are just incredible. They are so strong and firm, have such strong tesimonies, and such great desires to share that with everybody else! 
    Well, I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the time as family! I love you all so much!
