Hola Familia y Amigos!
We did a whole crapton of stuff this week.
I’ll just talk about Thursday onward.
We had splits with some elders because we had some missionaries that had to go to Salta to do some paperwork for their ID. We finished the next day, and we had to practice our choir for the Christmas conference.
Friday was the christmas conference! We had great food (stuffed chicken with potatoes and salad) and we had a fun game of white elephant with our gifts. I wanted my gift to be super Bolivian haha so I bought a white llama hair bag with a llama on it and I put a book of mormon in it but in a language called cechua (something like that) and I got 2 kilos of caramels.
The next day we had a “capilla abierta” (like an open house) in our stake center. I was with another elder on the tour and we dressed up in our baptismal clothes and we explained the doctrine of baptism and the gift of the holy ghost with the baptismal font right there. A ton of people came and it was reaaaaalllly spiritual and fun! We got like 7 references for our area even though we were like 20 minutes away! Whooo
Yesterday we went after church with the primary kids and the bishopric and we went caroling to less actives houses. It was so much fun and we really made an impact on those people!
Today we went with a brother from the ward up north! It was really fun and super beautiful. Look up Purmamarca, Tilcara, Maimara, and Humahuaca. They are awesome places!!
Cinthia is gonna get baptized on Saturday the 24th! She is such an incredible person and she is so happy to have found what she has been searching for so long!
I love the work and I love the Lord!
Livin’ the Dream,
