We had a good week. We had some service activities, we gave a  noche de hogar and we had A LOT of people come to church this week!!! We had an asado, we ate horse blood, i made desert and we did a chili challenge. So you could say it was a pretty good week.

Our service activity was to clean the house of a recent convert.   And boy was there a lot of clean.  Grandma Shields would not know what to do with this place.  SO we spent 2 hours just picking up garbage and cleaning his floors... 2 HOURS!! We still have his room, his kitchen, and his bathroom. So yeah. OH the things we do for people... 

Since this month that the leaders of the church have been doing a project of Sacrament Attendance September! They want everyone, less actives, investigators, and members, to go EVERY Sunday of this month, then after that look back on the month and realize HOW MUCH we are blessed when we go to church. We have been challenging people a lot in that. And we got results! Almost 100 people came to church this week!! And the week before we only had 70!! SO MANY BLESSINGS!! 

This week we had an asado (BBQ) with the family that the mom just barely got baptized. and it was super good. We had a  bunch of food there, and there is something here that is called Morcilla. And pretty much what it is is cooked Horse blood with onion pepper and some other spices. But it´s actually pretty good! The first time that I ate it no one told me what it was because well yeah... It´s just blood. It´s really good with Bread!

Then when we were there the dad heard that i like spicy so he bought each one of us a chili. And it was super hot. But it was super funny to see my  comp eat it because in Brasil they never eat spicy. Haha oh man, hopefully she  sent you a pic of us eating them mom, haha.

But this week that was just about it! Lots of Blessings. I was literally so happy about how many people were in sacrament meeting. Literally almost cried from joy, haha. The mission does weird things to ya. But yeah that was pretty much all that happened this week!

I feel the love of my family every week.  Especially when I read emails.   I am very blessed!  

Love you all!
