All is well here in Argentina! My comp said that our area started picking up right when I got here so we´re pretty busy every day. I´m starting to teach more in our lessons, though I´m still pretty limited in what I can say. I learn so much every single day about myself, the gospel, and just life in general. It´s crazy and at times a little overwhelming, but I love it! I am so grateful for the experiences I am having and it really is something wonderful to be able to witness the power of the atonement at work in others and in myself.
We had a branch activity this last friday and it was so much fun. We did Navidad en Julio as a reminder that we can remember Christ every single day of our lives. It was really successful and we even had some investigators show up! I love the branch here. They treat us so well. I just wish that I could really hold conversations with them because they are amazing and I want to get to know them better. I hope that I get to spend a long time here in this area! One of our investigators, Maria, is trying to quit smoking. We have this program to help her out with a whole list of things she can do, the only problem is she can´t read. So to help her remember the steps I drew pictures for her and she loved them. It felt so good to be able to feel like I really helped someone. And so far she hasn´t smoked since! :)
So funny story. This week a man came to our apartment to install a water heater. I was super pumped because that means WARM SHOWERS. I told my comp how excited I was about this and she just starts dying laughing. Turns out we had hot water in the shower the whole time, I just never know how to make it work... hahaha my heavens either way, I´m grateful for warms showers. And now we can wash our clothes and dishes with warm water, too. :)
I am learning to love missionary work more and more every day. The language is a little bit frustrating sometimes, but I know it will come eventually. I just have to keep trying and learning! :) I love all of you so much and I´m so grateful for your love and support. Life is getting crazier and crazier and we need each other more than ever! I know as we continue to share our thoughts and dreams we will be able to establish Zion in our family. I look forward to all that lies ahead! :)
Love, Hermana Robinson
