What are you going to do about it?

It has been a fantastic week here in Argentina, lots of cool things and some new experiences. But as always the hardest part of my day is what to write first. ahhhhhh

This past Thursday was super spiritual and just what I needed. We had a great meeting for all the missionaries that are going home in Feb, Mar, and May. The meeting was with President Ayre and his wife. The point of the meeting was to get us excited to work until the last seconds of our mission. And we had a surprise speaker through skype named Dan Clark. He is a very famous motivational speaker who speaks with a ton of people and they pay a lot of money to hear him. And it just happens to be a good friend of our mission President. He is an awesome guy, he lives in Utah and served his mission in Scottland. 

He talked a lot about making covenants with the Lord and working our shoes to death. He told us a story of how in his mission the average missionary baptized 0.005 people each year. But as he was placed in a new city and his companion was in his last transfer they were working really hard to help as many people as they could. For the Elder who was leaving he just wanted to baptize one person in his mission. Well after a lot of work and making promises with the Lord they were able to baptize 13 people! He told us that we have to give the lord our all. He said " You have been called of god to serve right now in this moment, and people are ready for you now... ¿Now What are you going to do about it?" 

That night we found 3 people who are going to get baptized within 2 weeks. I testify of the spirit and that people are prepared for this gospel every day!!!

Me and my companion are doing good, working hard and looking for every opportunity to serve others. This week we found our self pulling weeds and painting some houses, plus getting one of my converts here go to Efy! He is so great haha

Well I'm off to enjoy Argentina and I will talk to you next week which will be my last pday in the mission!!

Love you lots!
Elder Chriss
