This past Thursday, Elder Man and I found ourselves on a lonesome dirt road pretty far out in the boonies. The sun was shining with a few dark clouds in the distance and we were having a good chat about life, Practicing a couple new Spanish words when suddenly a deep rumbling noise began to sound from behind us.. I looked back expecting a truck to be coming up the road but to my suprise found nothing. Elder Man and I stood there a little puzzled when suddenly the pieces clicked in our head the rumbling noise was the rain pounding on the trees and bushes as it quickly gained momentum. We were being chased by a tropical rain storm, and it sounded like a doozy..
Elder Man and I began to run down the road like a couple of crazy Americans do in the back roads of Argentina when suddenly a loud whistly sounded from the distance.. We looked to our left where a young family was calling us over.. Grateful for the support we took off in there direction until we found cover under their metal roof. The next 20 minutes we just kind of stood there amazed at the power of the rain and how this storm literally came out of no where...
The amazing family then invited us in to their kitchen where we able to sit down and introduce ourselves. The Lopez family, as they´re called, are some of the most down to earth amazing people I´ve met here in Argentina. They recently moved here to Villegas and have actually never met with the missionaries.. We were able to teach them about the importance of families in this life and the amazing plan our Father in Heaven has for us. Using some little drawings we laid out the Plan of Salvation and taught a really cool lesson to this amazing family.
The Lord works in mysterious ways, and I´m grateful for the blessing he gave Elder Man and I that day in the rain, the Lopez family. Thanks for the support and love, hope everyone is enjoying the snow!!
Love you guys, Elder Larsen :)
