Pichanal in the rain

Hello how are you guys doing? What Awesome and exciting things are you up to? To start this Email I want to reply to the questions of my Dad and Kaden. I´ll start with dad. I like your idea about sharing a scriptural story about young men who were called on at a young age! Also in Predicad Mi Evangelio (Preach My Gospel) it talks about extending promises in chapter 11. Remember to read that if you get a chance. Some of the most powerful things you can do to invite the spirit are bearing testimony, sharing a personal experience, or promising blessings, or sharing your personal love for God and them. 

For Kaden the thing I would advise for you is to read in Preach My Gospel about the Christlike attribute of diligence and also humildad(humility). I know that these will have an impact on you and if you apply these things in your life it will help you be more proactive with your time and also it will help you enjoy your time more.

To end this letter I want to tell you about the success we had this week, first of all we had the opportunity to do a service project for a woman named Aldana. We helped waterproof her wooden house. We had many investigators in the church this week, including brother Pedro Dias and a bright and excited Raul and his soon to be wife and their three kids.

We had many good things happen as we felt satan working hard to discourage us in the difficult times. But in the end we continued and had a lot of success. I know that next week there is more success to be had!!

As we remember that we show our love to the Lord by keeping His commandments and also making good decisions and being thankful for what we have, the Lord will support us and help us to focus on others and to work our hardest!

I love you guys so much! I hope you all can feel my love but more importantly that of the Savior and His atoning sacrifice.

Until the next week,

Elder Sandberg :)

Hola mis amados amigos y familia

I am the happiest I have ever been in my life!!!!!! I really don't even know where to start!! Elder Philpot is a stud!!  We get along really well, and I am excited for this week!! I am going to start taking more photos now!

This week we saw the hand of the Lord in our work "A Full" First with a familia who are called Del Zotto, its Raul, Mirian and their 3 children!! Raul and his family are so prepared for this message. He has already accepted a date to be baptized!! We had a lesson and the spirit was amazingly strong!! They all comprehend really well the lessons and concepts and are applying our teachings in their lives!! We also met a man whose name is Pedro Dias and he accepted a date of baptism also!!! As far as the work goes in this area we are trying our hardest to be obedientes and diligent and work will all of our mind soul and strength. rain or shine!!

This week it rained a crazy amount! The roads were rivers!! We found some gumboots and we started to walk and visit houses it was very fun! We walk fast, work hard, and come home exhausted, but we are having a good time!! 

Also we have this awesome member who is called Miguel he is about 50 years old but has the mentality of someone who has 8 years. He asked me the other week if it snows in the United States like it does in Narnia!

I love you guys and I hope that this week was an awesome week for you!

Hi guys, I just want to say how grateful I am for the opportunity I have had to know you guys and also that I have had in the mission. I feel like my Father in Heaven really has helped me all the way!! I know that he really answers our prayers when we pray with Faith, but to have Faith is to act with total diligencia also. 

Today my Portainio companion de Buenos Aires went home at 4 in the morning and now I am with Elder Philpot from Arizona. We get along great and we both have great desires to serve the Lord and to work with total diligencia! He also has really good study ethics so I am excited to learn from him! He has 8 months in the mission. We are Ready to have an amazing translado! (transfer)

I am so grateful for the gift of agency, and the power to learn how to work with the Spirit and the Lord!! I know that The Spirit is the key to missionary work without the spirit we are just a bunch of young men who don't know how to speak Castellano! 

I am grateful for your inspiring stories of your lives and all that is happening. I tell you guys this particularly because I can see that you are all involved in worth while things and It makes me happy to know that all is going well!!

I am short on time today the internet was really slow. but I want to say thanks you guys and I am looking forward to next week when I can let you know even more!!

Have the best week,

Elder Sandberg
