Miracles are still real!!

Hey everybody,
    So i just got out of eating lunch with a colombian family that the hermanas that we share the ward with are teaching. They wanted us to come over so bad since my comp is Elder Olaya haha. But it was a lot of fun and we ate what is called ´´salcocho´´. But it was super good and i am now super full. But we have a cita in like an hour so i dont have a lot of time! I got all of the pictures this time, so thank you so much!! Looks like everything is great and crazy like usual in the Wengert household. Jess is already dating somebody, that didnt take long at all (and yes i would like some more details about this Jessie haha), stitches, mom messing up with her flight, weddings, etc.!! Tan, sounds like you are doing great in football. Way to go bud!! Jordy and Naes, how is volleyball and swimming? 
     Everything has been great here Pringles (once again it is not pronounced like the chip haha). Of course it has been a little crazy with the meetings, late night trips to fix problems in the zone, but it has been great and honestly filled with miracles! First to start off we had our conference with Elder Viñas of the 70. We had to travel down to Mendoza for it where we met up with about 3/4 of the misson. Elder Viñas talked a lot about the Atonement and how everything we do must be based off of our understanding of the Atonement of Jesucristo. Whether it was a good choice or bad choice. And then of course as missionaries we need to be focusing a lot on helping our investigators learn and understand the Atonement so that they can apply it in their personal conversion process. It was truly an incredible conference and we left with such excitement to work. So this whole week our studies have really been based on the atonement and really strived to apply it through our week. As we did we truly saw miracles happening in our area. Probably the biggest one was with Patricia. She has been taught for a little while now by the missionaries, but it wasnt until this week when we focused our lesson with her on the Atonement that she really began to progress and was having so many great questions. Showing us her great desire to grow and progress in the gospel. Then on Sunday Elder Olaya and I show up to the church building and there was Patricia already inside conversing with the members as if they had been long life friends. The hermanas of the relief society really took her in which helped so much. And now on wednesday she is going to a releif society activity and is just soaking everything up! It truly has been a miracle in the process!
    This has been one of the greatest things i have seen and learned here on my mission. That the Lord is a God of miracles and that miracles are so so real!! I have seen countless miracles during my time as a missionary. Wether it was here in Argentina, in England, or back at home. They happen everyday. Some bigger than others, but still miracles in my eyes just prooving to us how great and strong the love of the Lord is for each and everyone of us! 
    Sorry that this is so short, but i am just out of time! But i want you all to know that I love you so much and i appreciate every little thing you do! Have a great week and I will talk to you next week!!
