Just another random list of happenings this week:
1. We had to go to Mendoza this week so that Hermana Lybbert could do her visa stuff. On our way, we had to take a taxi to the terminal, the man was pretty shy, but super nice. Then, Saturday Morning, we were waiting for a bus (micro) on our way to conference, and he drove by and picked up someone. We waved and he smiled and waved back. Then, yesterday morning, we were waiting again for the micro to take us to the stake center in Libertador, and he pulls up. ¨Chicas, a dònde van?¨We told him to Libertador. ¨Hop in!¨he called. ¨For free?¨Hna Lybbert asked him. ¨Of course!¨ So we get in and we start driving. It´s like a 25 minute drive. But we get in and start talking to him. He was super friendly, and had lots of questions about why in the world we would leave our families and come down here. But then he told us that he´s been to church before! One of his best friends is a member, but moved to Texas. He knew about the Book of Mormon and everything! So we got his info and he said we can stop by. When we got there we offered to pay him a little for the long ride. He said ¨No, seriously, I just wanted to talk to you about all of this! We´ll see you soon!¨
2. I got bit by the MANGIEST dog. We were walking, and Hna. Lybbert scared him, so he bit me. che! But don´t worry mom, no broken skin or anything, just ripped tights.
3. While I was in Mendoza, I ran into the new companion of Hna. Keller. She told me that ENRIQUE GOT BAPTIZED! He quit smoking, was baptized, and then he even went out and did the white storm with the elders! He is already sharing the gospel and telling everyone that he´s going on a mission. He sent her a cute little hello for me. MIRACLES!
4. When we got back from Mendoza, we had to take a taxi to get to a meeting on time. We walked out of the terminal, and the Taxi man flagged us down. We got in and he immediately said ¨what church are you from?¨We told him, and he started asking all sorts of questions, really what he was interested in was if we believed in healing. He has a daughter that´s sick. I taught him a little bit about the priesthood and the restauración, and he asked us to come to his house and teach his family. He doesn´t live in our area, but the elders are teaching him!!!
5. Mom, on one of the streets we walk on a lot, there´s this little girl that is always riding her bike. The other day we passed, and she was having a little argument with her mom. She wanted to be allowed to go further down the road.
I had to laugh. Even Argentine moms don´t let their kids go past Nelsons or Crowley's :)
Love you all. Even halfway round the world, there are always things that make me think of you.
Happy Birthday Elderes!
