Hey everyone!!

I hope that everything is going swimmingly in the states as I report in the goings on here in Argentina.

If you haven´t gotten the memo… there is a ton of changes in my contact information so here is everything… spread the word… I still expect letters… and pictures.

Misión Argentina Resistencia
Entre Ríos 435
CP 3500 Resistencia


It looks like emails sent to my old email get forwarded to my new one, but I don´t know how long that is going to last, so please get into the habit of sending your emails to the new one.

Bueno… Back to business.
Here in Ituzaingó we are working really hard at the “sowing” end of things… and we have found a few people who seem really promising. We are teaching a woman named Rafaela, who is the maternal head of a very big family… 8 in her house and she has a lot of influence in two others. We hope that if we can teach her and get her to the font, the rest will follow.

She is VERY catholic, but seems to be receptive of the things that we have said… a shrine to Virgin Maria taller than the door greets those who enter her home, but she really likes the idea of modern day prophets… but no contact is entirely without problems… she can´t read. We are trying really hard to find a way to make it so she can grow a testimony of the Book of Mormon without offending her. Any ideas anyone? We can´t ask her to read the Book of Mormon and audio recordings are a little hard to come by.

God also helped us a TON when three people who we hadn´t visited, one we did not know, showed up to church on Sunday. Mariana, the daughter of Nora and Oscar came to church WITHOUT Nora and Oscar because some of the young women invited her. Nora and Oscar could not come because Oscar was getting treatment, but we were really surprised and exited to see Mariana there, igual. Miracle of member missionary work right there.

Then we met Maria de Pilar, the mother of one of the members, that up and decided one day that she wanted to go to church with her son… we went and visited them Sunday and found more than just a passing interest.

Then Vicente came too. I really don´t know much about him, he kind of just walked in off of the street, but, we are going to visit him tomorrow during divisions.
Which reminds me, we are going to do divisions again with LaValle, one of the areas of Hermanas in Posadas, but this time Hermana Galbraith will come with me in Ituzaingó. I am really excited to work with her because for the first time, I get to do divisions with someone more experienced, and with Hermana Galbraith, I hope we can do some really awesome things for the day. Hermana Galbraith goes home this traslado, and it’s really my last chance to work with her.

It is really weird to see her go… she has been in my district since week one… my companion has changed twice, but she has always been there… and now she will go, and maybe me too… I am so happy that I get to do divisions with her at least once.
Well, I am running out of time… but I love you all.

Chaucito, eh?

Hermana Sarah Tritsch
