No heat can stop the miracles!!

   Hello from the dead heat of Argentina!!! It´s not supposed to be this hot yet! Summer doesnt start until December and this week has been killer. Being and arizona boy i always thought that i could easily handle the heat. But then i realize back at home there are actually ways to escape the heat since we have pools and actual AC units in the houses. Here, everything is built by brick without insillation of anykind making homes more like ovens. Luckilly we have a good working fan in the pench that is a life saver at night make it possible to get a least a few hours of sleep. But its wierd to see how happy we still are. We are always sweaty and tired, but still happy. Gotta love the mission!!
    Sounds like another wonderful week back at home. That temple tour sounded so awesome and im a little jealous about it!! Up close with the oxen and see every room in the temple, way cool. I miss being close to a temple!! Make sure to take advantage of those blessings! You have like 4 or 5 temples within a 2 hour distance. Members here would die for that privilege and i dream of the day to hear of the anouncement of a temple here in Mendoza!! Dad, im sorry to hear about your beloved club breaking. But hey, better your club than Jordans head haha. Teddi, i hope all goes well with your eye so that you get that surgery. Just know there is an Elder here in Argentina praying for you!! Janae, way to go with swimming and getting swimmer/athelte of the week!!! Jordy, enjoy your first senior night and enjoy your senior year. It will be gone before you know it! Tan Man, how is basktball going and who is your coach?
    Well this really was a great week for us! Hot but great! We were really focusing on finding some new investigators and we were able to find some great ones this week. Last night we found the sweetest old lady named Juanna. She lives alone but happened to find her yesterday knocking her door while her nephew was there visiting. So she let us in and we had a great lesson with her! So has a lot of health problems and for that reason stopped going to church. But she accepted our invitation to come to church with us on Sunday when we pass by for her in the car of a member. She also expressed to us about her desire to get baptised, because she never has been baptised. So we taught her about authority and she accpetd a baptismal date for the 29 of November. Familia Callejas are doing great as well. They came to church once again and really are excited about coming back to church. So we are going to work on getting started on the divorcement process of Efrain so that they can get married and then Yamila can get baptised! But they are a great family! The only tough thing that happened this week was some problems that have started in the family of Agustin back at his house in Santiago del Estero. And because of those problems he was required to move back there. It will be very tough for him there because he doesnt have any other family in Santiago who are members, but we had a good talk with him and he is determined  to continue strong in the church! So if you could, please keep him in your prayers, because he will need some help!!!
    Thank you so much for all you do. I hope you all have a great week and I love you all so much!!
