Argentina: Week 8

Doing some yard work.

The sister had like 300 chickens.

Cleaning the chicken coop.

Lots of work.

Some more work.

So I have a lot more to talk about that normal. First, Mabel dropped us. That was hard but we were planning to drop her anyway because she hasn’t been progressing for a month. We found out Sunday that our area is going to be split and we are going to get Elders in our area. We found some people in part of our area but we aren’t sure if they are going to go anywhere. Laura, the one who is going to be married on the 20th and baptized on the 21st told us she was doubting whether or not she should get married on the 20th because her mom was thinking that was too fast even though they have been living together for 4 years. Right. Anyway, we told her to come to church with that question in mind and we would ask her afterwards. She is for sure getting married on the 20th as of yesterday! WOOT WOOT. Missionaries have been working with her and Marcelo for 9 months. We are pretty excited that we could help them get to this point. We had an awesome lesson with them about how our actions on this earth are building our mansions in heaven, and we even built a little house out of popsicle sticks. We still have it but we haven’t taken a picture of it yet. I also forgot to get a picture of a panaderia before coming here so you will have to wait until next week.

Other exciting news? The bus that we use to get everywhere had a little drama on Friday. The bus drivers went on strike and we couldn’t use the bus to get to the other part of our area. We had also been planning on taking that bus to the stake center to have zone capacitation (training) but none of the missionaries could get there so they canceled it after we had already gone in a taxi for twenty minutes. Fun times.

Now the pictures. Saturday we had service for a single sister in the ward. We cleaned up her yard while some people over-turned the dirt.

We finished with that early and there weren’t enough shovels to do the other part so we asked what else we could do. They told us that the only other thing to do is man’s work. Pah. It was gross, nothing more. It wasn’t hard at all just smelt really bad. We cleaned out the chicken coops that had this layer of dirt/poop and then carted it off to this pile. It was pretty interesting day.
