Merry Christmas!!

Hope everyone had a great Christmas and was able to enjoy time in family and friends. I definitely enjoyed skyping with you guys a lot, it is always a special moment for a missionary to be able to share his feelings and testimony with his family. Thanks so much for listening and being so supportive! Can't thank you guys enough. It sure was a great Christmas and I feel so blessed to be a missionary, we saw so many miracles this week I can't even explain them all! I hope you all were able to feel the love of our Savior and really understand that miracles exist these days!

Well I don't even know where to start this week. But I think Ill just start by saying sorry but I don't know if I'll be able to send you many pictures while Im here, so far all the computers I've tried aren't able to send pictures haha.. but what can you do right. This cyber we are in right now is in the roof of a little shop and right now it is probably 40 degrees in here! It's gross.. but I am absolutely sweating so bad right now haha.. gotta love it! Catan is super amazing I have already come to love it a ton. It is just such a unique place and has such a special feel to it.

Church yesterday was super amazing, we had a couple great families and investigators show up! Gaston and Monica and their 2 little daughters (Lucmila is 10 and Agustina is 6) went for the second Sunday in a row! They are so awesome. They have plans on getting married so we are working a full with that right now, we are hoping that they will bet married and then be able to be baptised in February! love them so much. We also had a couple other investigators go that are progressing towards baptism in January. Itati and Juana both went yesterday so we are helping them a lot and hope that they will be able to keep all their commitments.

This week was definitely up and down. So we went to visit Angel and Francisca the other day and they had been in a fight and she ripped up their marriage papers :( so that was definitely a super hard moment for us, we were broken. We had a really good talk with them though so we will see how it goes from here on out, just have to be patience and trust in the Lord and in His time. They are super special people and have a special place in my heart, so we are going to do all we can to help them.

But the craziest thing happened right after they told us they ripped up their papers. So we left their house and we were a little bit down on ourselves. So we were walking along the street when a lady yelled out "Elders" so we quickly stopped and looked to see who it was. It was a lady and her family who we had never met before, so we quickly went over to introduce ourselves. As we got talking with them she told us that she is a less active member, and for just under a year they have been living here in Argentina. She told us that for some time she had been wanting to go to the church but just couldn't find the strength to do it. She also told us that she wanted to get married to her husband and that for some time they had been planning on it, but that it was also super hard for them to take the time to do it. So last night we went to their house and had our very first lesson with them, and we talked about the Proclamation to the Family, and it was such a special lesson! She was in tears, and her husband who isn't a member said that he would love to get married and has always thought about being baptised!! Such a miracle! So we are hoping we can go with them next week to help them set a marriage date! They also have 4 kids who are all super cool! So that's just an awesome miracle I wanted to share with you all :)

Hey but I hope you guys have a great week! Tomorrow we are going to the temple as a mission and I am more then excited. I hope you guys are taking advantage of having the temple so close and going lots :) It really is such a blessing and I know that we are blessed so much when we are inside, and that we can receive so much help and revelation from God. I love you all, thanks for everything you do and happy new years! Hope this year can be even greater then 2014. All the best!!

Love, Elder Hansen.
