HOLA a TODOS :)
I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful Christmas season :) We have been starting to really get into the Christmas spirit here and things have really started warming up here! BABY IT'S HOOOOTT OUTSIDE :) But it´s all good cuz we got the freezer fixed this week so we will have ice for the first time in a few months woohoo :) And we will be able to buy meat for Christmas :)
Last pday we had a district activity, dessert with games, we tried to play some card game in Italian and everyone brought a dessert, there was grapefruit ice cream, no bake cookies that didn't set and soup and some good old Argentina style chocolate chip cookies (no brown sugar here so they turn out weird) But there was also peach cobbler and brownies so that was yummy :)
In the Spirit of Christmas, I got a package from my mom with new shoes HALLELUJAH!!! and a bunch of spices and other presents I haven't opened yet :) And my comp and I bought and set up a Christmas tree and garland and those with the decorations my mom sent help make the apartment feel like home :) sorta :)
Also, as part of #iluminarelmundo we have been singing in choirs as a zone while others contact and it has been cool.
We have kept working with Andres lots this week. On Tuesday we got a call from the Stake President that he was in the chappel, we were super far away and didn't have an appt. but we took a bus over there and he just told us that he didn't get to say goodbye to us Sunday and figured we would be close by :) so we set a cita to keep teaching him :) On Saturday we took him to the family history center and helped him start a familysearch account and he is gonna be able to take his mom's name to the temple :) He was also sustained to receive the Priesthood Sunday :)
We are working with a new investigator now, Victor, he is espiritista. I have no idea what the translation is there, basically he has a totem in his front yard and wears a necklace of bones he made himself but he is progressing, he accepted to be baptized in these coming weeks so wooohoo :) #aguantebanfield2 My favorite part with him this week was seeing him arrive to church and the surprised looks on the members' faces :) But he got along really well with Oscar, a recent convert, so that was awesome :)
In other randomnes, I made my first croutons this week and they greatly enhanced my salads for lunch. We bought a kilo of lettuce last Monday so lots of salads :)
Hey so guess what? :) I have been in the mission for 9 months, who can believe it? :) Halfway there :) we celebrated with Grido Ice cream, the best flavor ever that doesn't exist in the states, dulce de leche con brownie ;)
I can't believe how fast the time has gone!
I love being a missionary and representative of Jesucristo. Sé que esta es la iglesia verdadera y que Jesucristo y Dios nos aman muchisimo. Sé que Dios mandó a su hijo al mundo para que pudieramos cambiar, progresar y llegar a volver a vivir con Dios y nuestras familias. Amo el evangelio y sé porque estoy acá. Siga adelante iluminando el mundo y no se olviden que hay esperanza. Feliz Navidad :)
