Hey Everyone! 

This last week was pretty good actually. On Tuesday we passed by a part member family whose little boy just passed away and so we´re helping them to understand the plan of salvation and the parents are really determined to come to church and get to the temple to be able to be sealed to their child. And, Elder Zúñiga from the other part of Pirané was with us all day on wednesday because his companion had to travel to Resistencia for the day. It was pretty fun being in a trio for a day, but there is definitely not enough room in any of the apartments for 3 20 year olds to be living. But, it was only one night. 

So then we had to travel to the capital of Formosa on Thursday for a special conference from Carlos Gonzalez from the 70. That was pretty good, it was just a ton of traveling for one day and we had to wake up at 4 AM to leave. And Elder Aguirre was a little sick for the last part of Thursday and then Friday until about 3. So, that was the down part of the week, but he´s all good now. 

And then we had the branch activity on Friday and had empanadas again and I always love those. The game was fun and we got to eat a ton of empanadas because they are super cheap here in Pirané, only $2 a dozen. The bad this week is that we had to stop teaching la familia Benitez. They are still good people, but they weren´t progressing. They just wanted us to come over as friends and they didn´t really want to learn anymore about the gospel. But, la hermana Amarilla came to church and it looks like we´ll have her baptism this saturday!! :D So, keep your fingers crossed. Also, we are going to call the stake president or something about getting a piano here, because we just sing the hymns acapella and most the people don´t even know the hymns or can´t hit the notes if they do. But, we probably won´t get one, at least for awhile. 

Anyways, the quote I wanted to share this week comes from William R. Walker and it reads, “The more connected we feel to our righteous forefathers, the more likely we are to make wise and righteous choices.” We can all look into our past and find an awesome great grandpa or grandma or uncle or something and we can use their example to be better people ourselves. I love this quote and how it encourages us to do family history and to follow the good examples that others have given us. Thank you to everyone who wrote me this week and I hope to hear from all of you soon.[ Still waiting on the pictures ): ]

Les Quiero,
Elder Joshua Clarine
