Good Times

This week has been full of different adventures. I actually don´t really know where to start so I´m just going to give a day by day synopsis.
Tuesday: Every month, all the zone leaders are called to Salta for a leadership counsil so bright and early in the morning, someone decided that we should go play futbol northern zones versus southern zones on a cement ¨field¨. A fun experience overall but since we live in Salta we basically had to spend a ton of money on a taxi and then go back to the pension then to the mission home again. Hahaha but it was nice to see a bunch of old pals in the leadership council!
Wednesday: Weekly planning.... Not exactly an adventure but we had to do it early because on thursday we had to give our Zone Training and on Friday we had to verify weekly planning of another area in our zone.
Thursday: Zone Training and divisions with an Elder called Elder Birch (pretty hilarious dude with great desires to become a better missionary).
Friday: Fun road trip to Ciudad de Milagros to verify weekly planning. The taxi driver was swearing up a storm so that was interesting. Haha
Saturday: Rest from all other duties. I got to spend the whole day in my area!
Sunday: an investigator named Hugo (we call him Hugity Bugity) showed up to church which was an awesomely present surprise!
I think what I learned this week would have to be the importance of church attendance in participating in the Atonement of Jesus Christ. After giving a lesson in the Zone Training about it, I´ve come to really understand that it is so important that we should never miss church. In fact, we can´t miss church. The grace of God is sufficient to save all man but only if we are willing to do what is necessary to utilize that ennabling power. Without the sacrament, we are unnable to enjoy the ennabling power of Jesus Christ´s sacrifice. I would like to refer you to the talk by President Uchtdorf in the last General Conference. Without the sacrament we would still be headed farther down in a hole that we can´t dig ourselves out of. God´s grace can be accessed by worthy church attendance. I know it, I live it, I love it!
