Ok to explain really fast of what has happened recently this last week.
We had the chance to talk to go to the famous Tucan who does a really awesome job with leather. He has been selling his product for over 27 years to the Elders and Sisters who are in our mission. He is very skilled but sadly he never has gone to the church- Ever. But he has a huge collection of animal skins from Alligator to Beaver to Iguana! And even more! He’s pretty awesome. Thinking about taking advantage of this time and buying a couple of things for home! We tried talking to him but sadly he doesn’t really budge.
The Hermanas here in our branch had a baptism for their investigator Santiago. He asked me to baptize him, so I did. He’s super awesome and used to be a drunk, but changed his entire life around and got baptized! We all sang “Count your many blessings” for his baptismal service. It all went good seeing as the baptismal font is just a tarp with metal outlining. We had to use stairs to get into it. Pretty sketchy because I thought I was going to fall in! But everything went well.

When we were teaching out there, it was so quiet, no distractions, no motos, no loud stereos, and it was so spiritual because it was basically the Sacred Grove of Argentina. All the lessons we had there were very good. Also I got to hold an alligator and let an owl groom my hair! ja ja
I don’t have a lot of time to write but I love all of you!
cuiedense (take care)! Chao chao!
