My name is Winona Barton and I have been called to a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have been called to the Argentina Posadas mission and this blog is to record that adventure week by week. Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org

A little banged and bruised - but still going!
- in the morning we were running around buying meat, beans and chips to
make lunch for our whole zone and after lunch we went to barrio jardín
(neighbourhood garden) for an open church (its a church tour thing for
investigators and such) and it went really well! There was even a pastor
from another church that came and took a ton of pictures and cried 3
times. I was in charge of the plan of happiness and I just talked like a
minute on that.
- in the morning we had a meeting with all the leaders of the zone in
Argentina and I sang with Hermana. W, Elder M and Elder S (sorry, not
using names to protect identities and privacy - remember?). We did a
harmony of ¨How Great Thou Art¨ but in Spanish. Then afterwards, we
taught "A" and her mom and she seems to be following whatever her mom
says, but is interested as well, - we'll see how it works out.
- we tried to find a lot of people... one was a woman we talked to on
the bus and then saw her again on the bus, but she wasn't at home. We
taught a less active youth and then we planned for the rest of the week.
- In the morning we made a video with "E" - who recently was
baptized....see a couple posts ago - about her story (just a short
little video) for the conference (that will happen tomorrow) and we
printed out maps of our area because after lunch (and after a district
meeting) almost all of our zone came and contacted in our area and the
Saturday - in the morning we taught "J" - we are not sure if he is really
listening or not, but he does have a desire to be closer to God. For
lunch we stopped in at Subway and then went to another area to help the
zone leaders there with an investigator. After, we took a bus to come
back and saw another bus we needed pass by us, so we went to ran to
catch it - but I tripped and fell (I also slept badly in the night at
was a little tired) and have a few bruises to show for it. Once I was
back on my feet and kinda recovered, we tried to visit an investigator,
but she wasn't home. Apparently she is really sick in the hospital! So
we helped with a Baptism of a member and I gave a little talk about
Baptism,and realized that my skirt ripped - thankfully it wasn't too
- we didn't have any investigators come to church but the Elders did
and she was really great! She was telling everyone she received the Book
Of Mormon the other day and was reading it the night before and even
fell asleep with it.
