Hey there fam and friends!
This last week on Wednesday, the mission split. The Great Santa Fe Mission has begun! President Perez and his wife arrived wednesday. In a couple days we will have a “get-to-know the President” meeting. I’m excited to meet the man called of God to start out the new mission. Their “home ward” is in my district. We heard a rumor that they were coming to Galvez, our place, but they haven’t stopped by yet! We made sure to clean the apartment, I need to get a haircut too so that we can be ready for a visit. They are both from Chile. Argentina isn’t all too happy with the Chileans right now (or ever!) because Chile just beat them in the American Cup.
Did I show you a view from our apartment yet? Here’s a cool shot and then the rest of the apartment.
This last week we started the tradition of a Family Home Evening for every week in our branch. We think this is a great plan to get the branch (with the tiny amount of members it has) to bond and be strengthened and to have fun! We had success last week with the first one, one crazy little boy did knock over a bowl full of cereal snacks which was pretty hilarious, the cats were happy to eat them, and a family that hasn’t attended church for a while came as well, so all in all, a good first!
Then there was a gorgeous ball of a baby I needed to take a picture of while we were doing service for a family, helping them set the foundation for a room they are attaching to the house.
there is this awesome set of kids in our branch. They are super fun to teach! The Acevedo family. We are specifically working on the young girl for baptism, Milagros, she is 15, and progressing. 2 of the other over 8 years old kids and the father are already baptized. this is the same family that fed us the otter! The parrot of course is entertaining.
