Ok so obviously one of the highlights of the week was the oportunity to be able to talk to the fam! It was awesome to see all of you! So glad we could find a time when dad wasn't working. It's crazy that so much snow has fallen over there in SLC.
Also I got the package you sent from that Argentina Missionary Package Place. I guess they had accidentally sent it to the North mission so that is why I didn't get it before Christmas. The guy called a member that he knew in Ezeiza and they gave him our number and then he rang us up! We met at the church. So it was awesome!! Thank You!!
So here for Christmas is a little different, I have realized that it is actually more similar to the 4th of July in the States. There are a bunch of fireworks, and people just get together to eat an asado. The fireworks that go off are not the pretty colored ones that we are used to, they just make noise. And they go off for hours, so we were up until about 1:00am just listening to fireworks. I just thought wow...I have to wake up in 5hours. Haha
Things are so great with Elder Funk. He is the best!! I don't think we will be together for very long though. President gave me a hint that I wasn`t going to be here in Ezeiza for a long time. I assume that I will leave and Elder Funk will receive a new missionary.
Well we are pretty much in the hottest week of the year here in Argentina. The humidity just makes it even worse, we are just drenched like the whole day and there is nothing that you can really do about it, just suck it up and keep going, haha
This week we didn`t really have a lot of the time teaching because a lot of the time we had to be closed in the pench. We had to stay in for the whole day. But something that was really nice was something that I learned from the scriptures this week that actually Grandma and Grandpa Shields sent to me in an email! There is a Scripture in Matthew 25:40 that says ¨Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my bretheren, ye have done it unto me.¨ which ALSO goes along with the sripture in Mosiah 2:17 that says ¨When ye are in the service of your fellow beings, ye are only in the service of your God.¨ So where I am going with this is that it is super important that we serve others! So I invite you to serve someone this week! If it's someone you know or that you don`t know, just do it! You will feel awesome!! But yeah that`s all I got for this week, haha not too much but I vented my mind of stuff when I talked with the fam, haha.
Have a good week!!!
