2017.03.06 Week 39 - You really look like a pioneer

This was a great week to be a missionary in Roca.

We met some super great people. One family of Adventistas (Seventh-Day Adventists) who invited us in and gave us dinner the first time we met them. We already have an asado (Argentine style BBQ) planned for this Tuesday. The Dad told me he was going to cook me a pig, he's really excited since his wife and daughter don't eat chancho (pork). He's not a member of their church so he kinda does whatever he wants. He's trying to quit drinking.

We also met a woman named Janina. Remember that big group of ten and nine year olds? Well we are all pretty much homies now. We were walking home this week and saw one of them with his family. He yelled for us to come over and meet his Mom. We went and met her and then visited her this week. She recently separated from her pareja (partner) because she found out he was raping her 10 year old daughter. That's pretty heavy stuff people. But we could share some of the gospel with her and are going to keep visiting. Only Jesus Christ is going to be able to make this better. Lets just say we were all crying a lot in this lesson.

In other news, some comments of the week:

"You really look like a pioneer"

"I'm a little older than you guys." "What age do have anyway, 35?"

Speaking to me and my companion..."Are you her mom?"

Thanks Argentina, there is nothing that helps my self esteem more than you guys. Love you all. But really I do, you just have to get used to hearing cualquier cosa (anything).

Just want to remind you all that Jesus Christ really is our Savior and suffered for everything that we are going to pass through. We are never alone. He always understands. Just be strong and search for him and everything will be okay.
