Christmas Concert Reprise

Saludos de Argentina!
[Greetings from Argentina!]

I hope you´re all doing well and that you had a great week!

This week was a little hard. We contacted and worked hard (we didn´t travel as much this week), but we didn´t have a lot of success. But I know that God tries us and that we won´t receive anything until after the trial of our faith. 

Anyway, Jorge and Johana are doing well. Jorge wasn´t ever there but we did teach Johana. We taught about the Restoration and she was really receptive. She was amazed about all that she didn´t know and promised to read the Book of Mormon and ask if it, and the Church, are true. 
But they didn´t come to church. 

Helena y Gabriel. We couldn´t visit them because of scheduling problems but we were sure that we´d see them on Sunday.
But they didn´t come to church.

That is the biggest fight of all. Getting people to go to church!

Anyway, like I said, we didn´t have a lot of success even though we talked to everyone. But we did learn some patience, which is always good. :)

Sunday was crazy. Last week we had the choir concert and Presidente Alliaud liked it so much that we did it again this last Sunday. But in Rio Cuarto (four hours south of Córdoba).

So, we had to leave church early to meet at a church to get on the bus. We were on our way to Rio Cuarto when the bus broke down. We knew we were going to be late so we started warming up and practicing the songs. We decided to do it outside and while we were practicing, Presidente y Hermana Alliaud passed by in their car. They got out and asked what was going on but they couldn´t stay with us. They had to go help get everything ready. So we waited. Finally, after 3 hours of waiting, a different bus came to pick us up. The concert was supposed to start at 7, but we got there at 9. We got there and they started immediately. It was still a good concert, we were just a little burned out from the bus ride. 

After the concert, we got back on the buses and went to Córdoba. We got there at 4 in the morning and were staying at a B&B type place. There were 20 hermanas sharing 2 bathrooms. Also there weren´t enough beds, so my companion and I shared a bed in the bathroom. Let´s just say we didn´t sleep very much. :)

We got up and went to the Christmas Conference. At this conference, everybody goes. The whole mission. All 200 of us. It was great! I got to see my hija again and all my old companions. People from my districts and zones. All my friends in the mission. First we had a conference that was really amazing. Presidente y Hermana Alliaud are just amazing! Then we had lunch. We ate an asadazo! (big BBQ) And then we had a talent show. There were some pretty funny acts. :) Then we all changed our clothes and went to play games. Soccer, basketball, Frisbee, etc. It was a really fun day! 

Anyway, I hope you all are doing well and that you all make this week incredible! I love you all so much! No se olviden que nos es nacido un Salvador! Averguen por qué!

Love from,

Hermana Micaela Wilson
