Well it´s Halloween today, we´ve been eating candy corn all morning! Thanks for that, it´s good, they don´t have anything like it down here. So our plans today are to go the the cemetery in Chacarita and see the sights. When the elders asked if it was something we want ed to do, we were like...really...cemetery. Then we thought about it and remembered it is Halloween and since we can´t really do anything else to celebrate, why not. This cemetery is HUGE, so it should be cool to see all the different types of graves, and tombs, they have a lot of family tombs here and they are always really pretty and cool looking. So that is the plan for today.
Thanks for the PACKAGE!!!! It it fantastic! Mom, I asked Hermana Gulbrandsen about the customs thing and she said they didn´t have any problems receiving it, so the money thing isn´t a problem I guess. So you can send things how you want, don´t worry about me having to pay. I don´t know if that goes for all missions, but that´s what Hermana Gulbrandsen told me. As for Christmas I´ll have to think about it..... Thanks for the cards everybody, they are great. Love the skirt, I´m wearing right now actually.
Oh and HAPPY BIRTHDAY LISSY!!!! and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY KAMMIE!!! I hope they are great! I can´t remember if if I wished Brandi Happy birthday, if not Feliz Cumple.... tarde! I can´t believe that tomorrow is November. How time flies. I saw Hermana Vargas yesterday and someone asked her how much time she had in the mission and she said 5 months. That was weird. My hijita has 5 months! I can´t believe that I´ve been with Hermana Binks for 2, it just keeps speeding up. Before you know it I´ll be home and all this will be like a wonderful dream. It´s weird how things like that work. Oh well, así es, and we don´t have to worry about it.
As for this week...
It had it´s ups and down like every other, but the goods always out way the bads. One of the biggest things was our ward missionary activity that we had this weekend. It was a combined activity with Nuñez as well. We went to Parque Saavedra and contacted about 650-700 people. They were all invited to an open house that we had the following day (yesterday) One of the biggest purposes of the activity was to get the members involved and excited. It was great and there was definitely a new excitement in those members who participated. Hermana Binks was great as she knows how to make balloon animals and made several for little kids as we talked with their parents. I think I am going to develop this talent when I come home it is super fun and everyone love it. So Sunday came around and we were very excited for the open house. Well we had five people show up! One was a contact from the park and the others were people that members contacted on the street as they were walking by. One of them is Alcides. He is amazing and he is just as much an answer to my prayers as we are to his.
So things are good here in Urquiza. I love you all lots!
Okay, off to see some graaaaaaveeeeesss. oooooohhhhhoooooo.
