Saying Goodbye to families in Sante Fe....
This is my shower....
And... it has a bucket shower! yippie! It’s basically a bucket and you plug it into the wall to heat up the water and the water pressure is just gravity. ha it’s great.
Well not really, but whatcha gunna do.
I loved your emails this week! Thank you so much for letting me in on everything! Jenee, you looked super pretty and Dans tux was legittt! Sounds like you had a great Bday and prom!
Alright so this weekend I was super homesick. haha I knew you guys were all hanging out and Jen had prom and stuff. So I basically was super "trunky."(that’s what we say for homesick)
So I got to my new area, Villa Diego, in the city Villa Gobernador Galvez, around noon on Wednesday. It's a suburb outside of Rosario. I met my new companion, Elder A. he's from Durazno, Uraguay, he´s way cool. He’s way quiet, but a really good guy. He's been out 7.5 months. So my whole mission I have wanted to have a comp that likes country music but NEVER thought it was going be a Latin! Elder A. knows every single Taylor Swift and Lady Antebellum song! It’s great! We’re always singing while walking. He knows so much American music it’s crazy. Anyways, we ate at McDonalds and then took a taxi to the pinch. The pinch is horrible. It's known for being bad... Smells wet, had rats and cockroaches but they said they’re all gone. And... it has a bucket shower! yippie! (I sent a pic) It’s basically a bucket and you plug it into the wall to heat up the water and the water pressure is just gravity. ha it’s great. Well not really, but whatcha gunna do. "This is my TEMPORARY HOME" as Carrie Underwood would say. (Villa means ghetto in spanish. haha). The BRANCH is really great though! It’s funny though because there’s more people that are active in the branch, than my old ward in Liceo. We met the Branch President and the Mission Leader and I really believe this ward has a lot of potential! We just need people to teach! I think were going to do a lots of finding this transfer and I hope to learn how to do it effectively!
Yesterday we had Stake Conference and it was super great! They talked a ton about the family. First a Sister talked about the divine role of a Mom. She talked about how essential it is to have a healthy relationship between the husband and wife and how it’s their role to TEACH their children, worldly things as well as spiritual. Then they talked about temples and the amazing blessing that it is to be able to be sealed for time and all eternity together. I know that God, though his love for us, has restored that priesthood power through a modern day prophet. I am so grateful for my family, all that you guys do for me and help me.
The Buenos Aires temple is opening in September, so that’s really exciting. I know that families can be together forever. I know that God wants the best for our families. I know he gives us commandments to guide us. I love you guys so much and thank you for the strength that you are to me. Sorry it was short this week!
I love you so much!
