7-20-15 A Great Week !

I am really blessed to have this time to be in the mission. I hope my brothers can understand the importance of the work we do here. Note to Kaden and Brennen, now is the time to prepare to serve. I know that bobby and daddy are already helping you guys develop the skills you will need physically, mentally and spiritually. Remember, in the mission, the Lord asks for all your heart, might, mind and strength!! D&C CH:4 

I want you guys to know how merciful the Lord is with me and all of the people in Argentina, he is helping me to overcome barriers that I thought that maybe I couldn´t over come! This week satin tried to tempt us with a lot of distractions and lies. I have learned this is something he tries to do a lot. He tries to make you think that you cannot do things and he does it very convincingly. But we just need to catch ourselves, every time we say to ourselves that we are not good enough, and then we need to say we can!! Like Kami Maxwell says “we can with the Atonement”!!!

This week was great! It was full of finding new people, teaching lessons, being inspired, having all of the drunk people contact us, and having a family of investigators attend  church. Also we had two more which includes one investigator who had a lot of problems getting up in the morning. What a blessing !!! :)

I love you guys so much and I hope you all have a great week dad, bobby, Kaden, and Brennen! 

Love you guys a ton,

Elder Sandberg


7- 13- 2015 Progress

How are you guys? This week was one of the most challenging weeks I have faced!! But never the less I feel good! :)

It started with the unexpected  operation of my companion. At 4 in the morning he asked me for a blessing! After I gave him the blessing we slept for a bout 30 min. Before going off the the hospital. It turns out that he had appendicitis and they had to operate. The good thing is I got to keep him company and we were able to look at the good in the situation. Before the operation I gave him another blessing and felt at peace. To clear things up, I waited what would be only a short time before the President of the Mission arrived with his wife and companioned me!

It was exciting. Instead of doing worse this week we actually had a better week and improved our numbers and we saw some good progress with our investigators. now Amalia has a date to be baptized she just needs to attend the church!! :P 

We have been exceedingly blessed in these past days. We had to arrange everyday for someone to companion me and someone for my companion but we were able to do it!!

I was reminded of my family when we visited the family Viltes family this week. They are a very awesome family, They are united and I know that they are going to progress in their own time, right now only the Daughter is progressing but the life of the gospel is contagious. I know that the rest of the family will accept also!! :) 

I Love you guys and I know that this week will be a great week!! Thanks for your advice about everything.

I wan´t you to know that I am alright That I know that the Lord will help me I have faith because he has helped me in many situations this week!! :)

Until next week!! 

With all my love I am so grateful for the family I have!!

6-15-2015 late posting

This week was awesome we found a lot of new people in the poorest part of the city. we are trying the Alma and Amulek approach and we are looking in the more humble areas!

First we found a girl named Amalia and she is super awesome. We went and taught her and she listened and asked questions and then after, she was the first to say “OK when can you guys return?”. When we returned her sister Cintia was there, and then when we returned the last time there was the whole family and friends and we taught and testified with the spirit and invited them all to be baptized and they all said it sounds like an awesome idea, now we just need to put fixed dates to all of them.

We also found a family through a miracle, and they are very receptive and the mom said that we arrived at the perfect time!!

I know that God is directing his work and that He is preparing people everyday, and that He has a plan for all of us!! :)

In other news Walter and Mariana are doing awesome and received their patriarchal blessings.

Today we had fun playing fΓΊtbol and making skinny ties!! 

Until next week!
