Hola familia, its me again, Hna Payne!

Well we are working hard for some baptisms this week! Miracles are going to have to happen for them to go through(well, more miracles because we have already seen a lot!) But its going to happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is still time for miracles to happen!

We spoke on Sunday. I spoke on the ´´why´´ of the gospel. We had 8 people in church. Hopefully the Hna Hunt will see some progress with them. We had one lady walk to church with her 5 kids. We called her on Saturday night to remind her. She told us that she was planning at leaving at 6:30/7 to make it in time to start at 8. We didnt have anyone else to go get so we went out there. We got there at like 7 and she had already left. We finally caught up to them. She was carrying her little baby. We wanted to help her.. but of course we cant hold
them. Well she left way too early, and we got there at 730. The church isnt really that far, but with little kids it is. Well the little kids didnt eat breakfast because the OTHER church always gives them milk and doughnuts. And then the classes (which are first) started late and the mom just kept saying how the OTHER church always started on time... Well, I guess we introduced her to Mormon standard time =) And then the primary president which is my age, maybe... got there with her little toddler and freaked out because the little kids had the marks of chicken pocks... haha oops! They have had them for like 2 weeks now so i didnt (and still dont) think they were still contagious. I felt bad, but it was still funny. It just started our week of great! There must be baptisms this week =)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING THIS WEEK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We truely have SOOOO much to be thankful for. What will yall do????? Fried turkey? YUM!

Yes, I have my debit card!

I dont really know my travel plans. Usually the people leave their area REALLY early on Thursday morning... have an interview with President and then have dinner with them, and then leave that night to BA which is like 10 hours bus ride. And then people get home on Saturdays.

Okay, well I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE yall! Have a great week!

Hola familia!!! Its me again, Hna Payne!

How goes life on the home front?? Im sure its getting quite cold there. Well we had a great baptism on Saturday. She bought a really cute, white, shirt and skirt for her baptism. Her dad even got off of work to come. We werent sure that he was coming, but he showed up just in time. We have actually had a couple of lessons with him which is a miracle. We tried putting a date but he didnt accept. We just need him to accept getting married so that Ramona can get married. We are going to try and talk marriage with him this week. It will be a miracle if it happens.

We are working with 2 couples that are trying to get their document so they can get married. One of these guys has to quite smoking too. We will be needing divine help if they are to go through. But this isnt my work... so all we can do is our part. I will have lots to tell you if they actually go though =) but im done with writing... so sorrry.
Why I love Argentina story: So we got home the other night and we sitting there plannnig when all of a sudden a RAT came under our door. We both screamed. It crawled under our oven and was inside it..... YUK! Hna Hunt was in charge of shutting the doors and standing watch so that it would just run back outside and not in our room.....I sat there hitting the oven with a broom and it finally ran out..... into our room... yea, she didnt shut the door good. We were then looking in there forever and coudlnt find it. we moved luggage out and everything... Finally Hna Hunt starts hitting about the window where there is space for a rat to hide... and it ran out at us. It was terrible. We might have screamed a few times. But luckily the owner didnt hear us. Haha he would have thought we were dying. Well we freaked out.. but its not uncommon to have rats in your house here.... Eh!

Dad, is that guy a member? What are the chances of him moving here? That is way cool.

Okay, well im out of time! I love, love love yall! Have a great week!

Hola familia, its me again, Hna Payne!

Well these last two weeks have been such a blur! I feel like we are just running from one area to the next. We are working with some great people that can be baptized. We are really focusing in them, and so our other numbers are pretty low... but we are going to have baptisms. We just keep seeing miracles, and i know that more are going to come.
We have a baptism this saturday. Lorena, the daughter of Ramona that needs to get married first. She is doing great. She is always seminary and the activities. She is really progressing.

The conference was soo great. I just keep thinking how close they are to perfection... They live in the public eye... but there is never anything in there conduct that you can interpret as something different. They truely are representatives of Jesus Christ. People always say there is black and white... but they definitely choose the celestial white. That requires thinking ahead of actions and looking at how others could see you. It could be something soo innocent, but there are always others trying to find fault. They are examples to me in the way that they dedicate their life to the Lord.

I found out that my family in Formosa, Flia Ortiz, that there two last kids got baptized. The dad got baptized when i got there, his daughters had gotten baptized in December, and his wife was inactive but was baptized when she had 14. But there were two that were not interested in hearing the Gospel. Well, they just showed up to church one day and my comp asked if they could teach them and they said yes because they wanted to have an eternal family. They both want to go on missions. Miracles. This really is the Lord´s work. I LOVE hearing the those stories about the people that have NO interest, and then BAM, something changes. The mom is young womens president, and the dad is young mens president.

Dad, i finally met Elder Wasden. He seemed very outgoing and nice.

Okay, well i love, love, love yall!

Have a great week!
