Querido Familia y Amigos!
This week has been AMAZINGGGGGG!!!!!"!°!!!
First, on Tuesday we had "divisiones" (splits). Hermana A- (one of the HLE´s (Sister Training Leader)) came to Lobos with me, and we worked a fullll!!! We applied all of the principles we have learned throughout our missions and from Preach My Gospel--like talk with everyone, how to talk to them when we are contacting, how to follow the spirit while teaching, how to work with members, etc. We worked as hard as we could, and biked as fast as we could, and were SUPER DUPER HAPPY!!!! :D:D:D
Thursday was my compañera´s 1/4 mark, and Friday was my cumplemez and 1/3 mark (I completed 6 months! The time goes sooooo fast!!) So we celebrated by buying a kilo of icecream and devouring it all over the course of one.5 days. And it was DELICIOUS!
And Saturday was Valentine´s day. So we heartattacked the Branch President´s door--without getting caught!--and ate heart shaped pancakes with strawberry syrup--because you have to do that on Valentine´s day! Today is President´s day, so we sang America the Beautiful during companionship study, and we are wearing Red, White, and Blue, so that we can be patriotic. Because you have to celebrate all of the little things! Today is also some kind of festival day in Argentina, so that just means that supposedly nobody goes to work--but all of the shops are still open, so maybe it´s only in the night?
And today I found out that one of my best friends will be serving a mission and I am soooo sooo excited about that too!
WEEKLY CHALLENGE: Write down each day a few of the blessings that you get for keeping certain commandments, and send them to me!
Love you all lots!
Hermana Durfee :D:D
