Home Sweet Home!!

Gavin is in an area called Solano. He shares this pension with 3 other elders. To quote Gavin, he says "his area consists of dogs, horses and trash" but he loves it! His trainer pranked him pretty good. They visited a family where they thought the wife was being beat up by her husband. The guy came running out with a gun and slurring Spanish at Gavin and his comp. Gavin thought he was a "gonner" the first day of his mission. When the wife went running after her husband trying to take away the gun, the couple started laughing and said "Bienvenidos to Argentina" Turns out that they were members. The guy had a gun because he works for the police. They invited them for dinner and had a great laugh. The guy, Hermano Mesa, then gave Gavin a cover for his scriptures. He says that the members are awesome! Gavin has already taught a lesson pretty much by himself about the Holy Ghost and faith. He said he found two perfect scriptures that answered a lady's questions in the Spanish Book of Mormon and Bible. He is already feeling the hand of the Lord in the work. He has also already had experiences that proves that the Lord is watching over His missionaries! Not bad for a first week in the mission!
