Alma 37:36 Yea, and cry into God for all thy support; yea, let all thy doings be unto the Lord, and whithersoever thou goest let it be in the Lord: yea, let all thy thoughts be directed unto the Lord; yea, let the affections of thy heart be placed upon the Lord forever.

Hey Papi, Mami, Rinery, & Sassy

 
Well sounds like lots has been going on, but what week that you’ve written me hasn’t been full of events hahaha

 
About the car that’s a pretty good deal you got there, although it is gold bahaha but oh well now everyone knows that if there’s a gold car it’s the Harker’s. And hey it goes along with our hair color!

 
Sounds like all the church activity is moving along quite nicely within the ward and stake. Also with the temple dedication coming up its sounds like everything is just exciting.

Sara and Jonny sound like they are adjusting to school fairly well, and I didn’t hear anything about Erin but I’m sure she is doing just fine. 

 
So about the work, well where to begin.

My companion, I don’t know if I told you but his name is ELDER L. He is from Paraguay and he’s way cool, not the most talkative person but I am learning lots from him. He really has a lot of desire to work and so we are just going at things head on. The new pension is pretty nice actually kind of small but not too bad, its clean and we live within view of the chapel, like literally  we can see it from our front door, it’s like  50 feet walk.  So it’s very convenient.  Now I’m in Rio Cuarto in barrios Bimaco, it’s still city but nicer than where I’ve been before. Everywhere I’ve been before has been pure villa aka ghetto and like the worst ghettos that exist in the mission/country. In the continent of South America I’ve been told that the 4 most dangerous areas are, 1st the Favela in Brazil, 2nd some area in Buenos Aires South,3rd Las Violetas, where I just came from and 4th Renacimiento where I started the mission. Anyway I’ve had my fair share of sketchy places. hahaha

I love it here and the members and the work is amazing. 

 
We just baptized this last week a lady named A and she’s so awesome, she was so prepared to hear the gospel and so things keep looking up every day that we work. I’m super happy to be here and just to see the children of God come back unto him.

 
One of the best experiences of the week was being able to participate in the rededication of the temple of Buenos Aires. We got to watch it at the centro de estaca por satilte and man the spirit once you entered was just like BOOM!!!! It was an extension of the temple and it was soo awesome to just have that feeling again. It sure made me miss the temple a bunch and I’m so excited for the opportunity to go back and learn so much more. I love the gospel and all the blessings that it brings. It sure was an experience I’ll never forget. The speaker were also amazing and Elder Erying, Ballard and Christoferson were there!!!

 

So everything is just dandy!!!! I love this work and I don’t want it to come to an end. Every week passes by faster and I don’t like it. There’s so much to do and so little time to do it. The children of God need to be saved and we have to help them realize that and bring them to their salvation or better said help them come to understand why they need to take these steps so they can obtain salvation. I just know I love everyday and I look forward to teaching more and more people everyday about the truths we know and understand. 

 

Anyway that’s about all for know I love you all soo much!!!!!! I hope you’re all doing well and keep learning and growing. A big shout out to all those that are preparing for the mission. Learn the lessons and learn to love the gospel and prepare to love your mission!!!

 

 

Thanks for all you do and until next time

 

Love Elder Harker
