Well hello everyone!!!
Hey guess what, great news! DearElder is free for all of you wanting to send letters to me! Whoohoo! I´m in a very choice mission :) So just throwing that out there. (create an account on www.dearelder.com and then you can write a letter to Heidi for free!)
anyway... so uh ya this week was great...WHAT IN THE WORLD HOW IS IT MONDAY AGAIN???? I swear, I¨m in a time warp or something!!! Whooo!!!! Time flies!
So our schedule changed! We go to bed at eleven now and wake up at 7! Mmmm this is the life! we´re surrounded by orchards yay i love fruit! But everyone says that argentina doesnt import stuff a lot so winter time has like no fruits and vegetables gah! We´ll see what happens when that comes around!
We´ve been working hard meeting all the less actives here, man its so crazy how people let the most important things in their lives slip away so easily. It´s just like that talk from general conference, when the family took a drive one sunday instead of going to sacrament meeting and from there became less active. All you people out there reading this, don´t let that happen to you! Take the time now to sit down and prioritize your life. Look at what you are doing, and what more you can be doing. Think about what is important to you, and make sure you give that the time that it deserves.
We had an amazing zone conference this week about unity and the faith to find the people waiting for this gospel. We made our own little title of liberty, (a story in the Book of Mormon.. a captain rallies his people to defend their rights and their liberty by writing on his torn shirt " In memory of our god our religion and freedom, and our peace, our wives, and our children" read about it here) with a zone goal for the next month and signed it. It was so cool! What does your title of liberty say?
Well I hope you all have an amazing week! Love you lots and wish you all a week full of smiles!!!!
Well if you are like me you found that letter a
little really... unfulfilling. Luckily we have a secret spa AKA Heidi's mom who found out more information for us...
Her branch meets in a house, with the living room as the sacrament and gospel principle class and bedrooms as primary and youth meetings and relief society. There are 30 members total, counting children and 4 missionaries, two sisters and two elders. These four missionaries are one district.
She and her companion are currently not teaching anyone and would like us to pray for them to have people to teach.
There are plenty of fruits and veggies now, but she hears in the winter there are none.
She has not seen any penguins (bummer) but mosquitos seem to follow her everywhere (worse bummer).
I asked about other critters like bedbugs but got no answer.
She loves her pension, apartment, and has a grandmother type lady who washes their clothes and feeds them desserts. Heidi says she is a tender mercy from the Lord. She doesn't want the lessons, but will let the sisters share a scripture with her when they come for dessert. They love her!
Mostly they cook on their own, but the members do share whatever they have with them, which Heidi says is really sweet as the members do not have much. Heidi gets a monthly card with $120 per month with which to buy food.
I hope you now feel stuffed or at least content with your information on Heidi!! Until next time..
