How are y'all? Asì que...Obama, eh? That's all everyone here wants to talk about right now. haha Anytime anyone finds out that we're from The States they're like..."oh! El Presidente Obama!" haha But hey, it starts a conversation! And if we're really sly we can turn the conversation back to the gospel. :)
This week absolutely flew by. Seriously, I don't get it. All of a sudden it was Saturday night, and here I am already writing you! Crazy. This week we had a couple of extraordinary things that happened. On Tuesday we were in our ward mission leaders' house having our ward mission meeting. He informed us that it was 89 degrees in his house. Dandy. SO HOT! And that's in the shade sitting next to a fan! The next day was so windy that the wind cut out all of the electricity in the neighborhood for a couple hours. Then about an hour later we had the biggest rain storm I have EVER experienced. Luckily we were inside doing our weekly planning when it happened, but the rain drops were about the size of a nickle, and it hailed too! Later on when we left the house we were wading through puddles in the street that were one foot deep! Thank goodness I had my jelly shoes on, so it didn't matter. But wow! Argentines always talk about how every time it's really hot that means a big rain storm is coming. Well....now I believe them!
The other big news is that we are moving! Surprise surprise! To make a long story short, we've been having several problems with our neighbor. A few days ago we heard from a member that someone called into a radio station and somehow they announced our address to everyone in Bahìa Blanca! For those of you that don't know, it's a rule that we're not allowed to publicize our address for our own protection and safety. So! Just to be safe we are in the process of moving to a new place and at the moment we are living in Barrio Villa Mitre with Hermanas Squire and Batista again! (But this time in a MUCH bigger place.) Hermana McWhorter and Hermana Marin also live there. It's kind of a bummer to have to bus over to our area everyday, but the change in temporary and we are excited to be able to have some time to live with the hermanas. It's always refreshing to feed off of each other's excitement for missionary work. :)
Hey Ang! Guess what! We're teaching an investigator right now that's named Angi! She's super cool and from the Dominican Republic! She's reading the Book of Mormon, plans to come to church on Sunday and is progressing pretty well! Keep her in your prayers.
Cute Hermana Carson celebrated her year mark on her mission this past week! That's a long time! I'm proud of her. She does incredible things.
Family, I love you! Keep doing what you're doing. Keep Go-ing and Do-ing. :) Hope you have a great week! Chamo!!
