The big new is we had a family night where ALMOST no one came, but then at the end we got 3 people!!!  So exciting!! 

SO yeah this week was really good! We got to go outside a lot more and do more proselyting! We did a ton of tracting and searching for old investigators and trying to find new ones but not too much success. Eventually we have found some people that were walking into their houses right when we got there so it was good to be able to talk to them because otherwise they probably wouldn´t have let us in their house! Ha.

Also the new mission President gets here this next Tuesday! Really the only preparations that we are doing is cleaning up the offices, getting our hair cut and dry cleaning our suits (first time I have done that my entire mission because this is the first area where I have found one!) but yeah... Nothing very WOW. But it will be super fun! We are all super sad that the Thurgoods and the Mitchells are going. This week they said their goodbye´s to all of the zones and we got to Hug Sister Thurgood and Hermana Mitchell (which to be honest isn´t the first time cause we are in the offices, haha). And they gave everyone some oreos (reminded me of the cookie jar that Grandma and Grandpa Shields have in their house!) and also a Album of all the people that have been in the mission since last July. And we sang for them and it was just super cool! Lots of tears. LOTS. ðŸ˜­ðŸ˜­ðŸ˜­ðŸ˜­ðŸ˜­

President and Sister Thurgood

My next mission president!

And this is weird because the most exciting thing that happened this week is that our shipment of phones and phone chips finally came for the mission!! We got 25 each and spent a couple hours filing all the information and activating all the chips and writing the numbers on the chips and figuring out which chip goes to which phone and blah blah blah.  It is really good because there are some areas that don´t even have phones!  One thing that has happened here in Argentina is that there has been a little increase in inflation so we have had a few more robberies than normal, haha, but luckily no one has gotten hurt! we are very blessed and protected from the Lord that none of the missionaries have been hurt during these months!

Well hope all of you have a fantastic week and I am happy to hear that Erin had a SPECTACULAR Birthday!!
