Well, as you all know after seven blissful months I have been transferred to Bragado. Although it is hard to leave Lujan, I am working to put all my heart and soul into Bragado. I can tell this is a special area and I am looking forward to the many miracles we will see here. There are two Chivilcoy zones; North and South. The city Chivilcoy is in the north zone and I am in Bragado which is in the south zone. I think Chivilcoy is probably the biggest city out here and so both zones have that name. My new companion is Sariah Morales. She is great and I think we are going to get along really well together. She is from Veracruz Mexico and goes home in 4 months.

know how long it has been since I've worn a sweatshirt?
It's sooooo great!

Also, the key is the one that Hermana Castellanos
and I had when we got locked out of our pench
and had to redo the lock. It's my reminder to
always follow the Spirit key.

going to be best friends!
I am so excited to see what Hermana Morales and I can do with the help of the Lord in this area. Our main goal this transfer is to find a complete family and bring them to baptism as worthy converts. Right now I do not believe obedience will be a problem but I want to make sure we are completely diligent and are using our time in the best way possible. Although our numbers this week were real, I feel that we can be using the indicators in a better way to have lessons with members with our progressing fechas and find our news from references etc. I have hope that these small changes will lead to great miracles as we strengthen our faith.
This week we were disappointed when our fechas who were extremely committed to come to church didn't show up. I am grateful for the fact that sacrament meeting is first here and we have ward council before hand so we can't go search for our investigators in the morning. It helps us to make better plans with our investigators beforehand and helps us to see who is really willing to make the effort to come. I believe it is a blessing in disguise as we are able to now focus on finding families that will really progress and be worthy, lasting converts who will help the branch here in Bragado.
One of our investigators in Sacrament meeting was Evelia, the mother of Daniela, who was baptized last weekend. She attended the baptism of her 22 year old daughter the week before and said she felt something which she had never felt before. Daniela almost didn't come to church today because of a meeting she was supposed to attend but her mom said she was going to church alone and walked out the door. Daniela then realized what she needed to do and followed her mother to go to church together. Later that night we had a lesson with them and shared the restoration. Evelia felt the spirit again and told us she believes that this is Christ's true church. She is praying to really know that is is God's will for her but I am confident she will be baptized this month and it will not be long before we will be able to touch the hearts of all of Daniela's family. I am so grateful for these miracles that we are able to witness as Heavenly Father touches people's hearts. When people are prepared by Him our role is really so small and insignificant, which is how it should be.
Love, Hermana Millet
