Well, I guess this is it. I can`t postpone it any longer. The Last Big One. These last few days I`ve tried to think of everything I`ve learned in the last 2 years, and I got to a conclusion: I can´t. I literally can`t even imagine what I was like before the mission. I`ve changed so much, I`ve learned so much, I`ve shaved so many times. My beard is going to be killer when I get back.
Here in my last area I just completed the first week. Went by slowly. I think its cuz of Christmas and New Years and Interviews with President and a bunch of stuff. Also I only have one week left.
Well, first and foremost, Merry Christmas everyone! I had my second and last Argentine Christmas as a representative of Jesus Christ, and it was awesome! We ate lunch with this older couple named Ferraro who made stuffed ham and a bunch of other little things to eat like 10 different types of pickled vegetables and also chorizo and cheese and stuff like that. We had dinner with them, the 4 of us here in Claypole and our zone leaders from Burzaco.
For Elder Gibson’s last Christmas in Argentina, we talked with him via Google Hangout on Christmas Eve because the internet cafes were closed Christmas Day. We had a very fun hour seeing and talking with Justin!
Here are the pics we took. We did not get Ethan in the group shot, so we took one separately!
Well, next week is Christmas. Like many of you we have already started celebrating. This last Saturday we had a huge stake activity based on the Ilumina El Mundo church thing. I think in English its something like Light The World Campaign 2017. Anyway we had a choir prepared with our ward and with all the Elders of the stake. Went super well! Way too many hours practicing, we didnt get like anything else done this week, but it was pretty cool anyway.
Well it was a good week down here in Gregory of LaFerrere. We`ve been forming a choir as a mission zone to be able to present it at the zone conference for the mission president and his wife, and this last monday at practice an elder in my old area, Catán 3, told me that one of my old investigadors was getting baptized!
Well, I was gunna attach an epic picture of me and my son and the second counselor of the Area Presidency, Elder Bragg, who surprise visited our ward yesterday, but the picture thing aint workin.
Have a good week everyone!
