Stake conferences in Trelew and Neuquén

Stake Conference in Trelew

Several weeks ago we were able to attend the Stake Conference in Trelew.  The Ehmkes were kind enough to make the eight hour drive with us.  Elder Garcia, from Chile, was the visiting authority.  He has so much energy and was very fun to listen to.  President Lovell also spoke and I bore my Spanish!

The Young Adult Choir provided beautiful music!
It was great to be with President Barendelli, the President of the Trelew Sur Stake. The meetings were very inspiring. The Spirit is the same in English and in Spanish!

The Ehmkes always make friends wherever they go!

It is always great to be with the missionaries.  Right after the meeting they were all right there to help get everything put away.




Stake Conference in Neuquén

It was so nice to only drive a few minutes to attend the Neuquén Stake Conference the very next weekend.  We were able to go with President Paredes, President of the Neuquén Stake, to pick up Elder Fereira from his hotel. Elder Fereira is also from Chile.  When we arrived at the Stake Center Elder Fereira was so happy to greet the missionaries. He is very energetic and loves the gospel. It was a wonderful meeting.  I don't understand everything yet but I did understand when he talked about how we are all the same in the eyes of the Lord. That is something that I am learning to understand better since being here in Argentina.

This young boy's name is Gabriel and he speaks English very well!  He translated for me when we first arrived and now we are good friends.

The icing on the cake was to be able to be with the missionaries after the meeting!
