3-10-16

Dear everyone,

Friday was a normal day we just contacted people, lunched, studied, contacted more and found this one blind lady who was being assisted by her daughter they both seemed pretty nice so I think we will go back in the future. Then we went for an old lady that is one of the other elders investigator but they didn’t have time that night to go by or visit her so they sent us in their place and we get down there and knock on a door and no one answers how funny the house we knocked on was street 67 number 2125. But the address we needed to be at was street 66 so we were a little off and we had to walk like a little ways and then found the house and she answered and said she was busy with company over or something so then we left. 

Saturday was also another day nothing really special the morning was just contacting and then the afternoon we looked for some people and didn’t really find anyone except for this one kind of soft spoken kind guy that we talked too and just extended an invitation to go to church tomorrow and that was like about it for the day.

Sunday we woke up went to church and then one random guy from the day before was there and we were like wow you came you aren’t even like our investigator or anything just some man that we contacted and invited yesterday. He seemed kind of out of place and confused the whole time because people were going up and bearing testimonies of plan of salvation and Book of Mormon and other like stuff that a normal guy wouldn’t know if this was his first time in our church. Then we went home and had lunch and normal afternoon and we contacted and visited people and like everyone was busy watching the game because supposedly there was a big game on even like we contacted this one house and there was a bunch of teen girls watching the soccer game and I was like whoa this isn’t normally normal for a group of girls to be doing on a Sunday afternoon. But whatever it’s Argentina everyone loves soccer no matter who you are. Then we were walking past another house and a guy invited us in and we walk into the house and sitting there is the Hermanas the Misioneras from Necochea central and we are like whoops are we in your area right now and we were a little lost so we apologized and left. Haha

 

Monday we went and taught this one guy in the morning that just analyzes everything he pulls out all these maps and papers and research and why doesn’t the universal history of the world go along with the history of the book of Mormon and where is the evidence for it and who is Joseph Smith and we told him to pray and read and he tells us he read the whole book of Mormon from the last time we saw him like 5 days ago and the book didn’t convince him and he is super stubborn and the way he prays he only prays using Our Father prayer and he refuses to change or pray any other way. And because it says like that to pray in the Bible that is the only way we can by reciting Our Father prayer over and over and over. There is no feeling, no conversation with God that way. He just struggles with praying believing the book of Mormon is true and Joseph Smith is a prophet because there is no historical evidence of it and there isn’t any artifacts or maps or anything it just doesn’t make sense with world history. After we left his house after arguing for like 2 hours the rest of the day was normal a normal afternoon and night.

Tuesday the morning was normal; we contacted down by the river and found these nice resort and restaurant and log cabins and vacation spot and all this stuff and the rowing club and wild horses and cattle. One lady said we can come back another morning because she was busy this morning bathing her little boy and I didn’t believe her until the little youngster kid walked out of the house naked; I was like okay we will come back another morning go bathe your kid. So we will probably pass by for her again in the future. Then the afternoon we found a guy and talked and talked because he didn’t believe in life after death. And we discussed and talked and then he showed us the stuff he has been working on. He is like a wood worker and he has a chimenea and a chair and a bench and a table and wind chimes and made all kinds of stuff and he brings out his guitar and my companion just jams out on it and the guy gets his harmonica and so my companion is playing the guitar and he on the harmonica and I just sit there clapping and playing my scriptures like drums. Then we are walking back to the house at night and it starts pouring out of nowhere and like a hard down drizzle like a storm so we start sprinting and you know Argentine streets dirt roads so we are running through mud and lots of puddles of water and we got completely soaked - my shirt, my pants, my tie, even down to my under wear were soaked from running like 10 cuadras or blocks in the heavy rain. So then I took everything off when I got home and they have been air drying  for the past 2 days

Yesterday, Wednesday we cleaned the church for service then had lunch, studied, planned for the week and then left in the afternoon, almost night found this family that are almost members they have took all the discussions from the missionaries before us and they are just waiting to get married but they were super nice gave us like homemade bread or torta or something with orange soda. Then that night we went to the church because we had meeting with the mission leader and that was okay we kind of just chatted, didn’t really talk that much about certain problems we just talked about like progress and people we are teaching right now that was about it. Then we went home after that.

 
Today, Thursday played soccer this morning then made French Toast for breakfast then came into Centro to shop for books or something the other elders needed and some book my companion wanted and then we ate hamburgers at a Shell gas station and now we are emailing and writing. 
 
But it is almost time to go I have 12 minutes left so I better start wrapping up. Thanks for all your emails this week have a good rest of the week. Have fun and love you all.

 

Love,

Elder Frampton
