We set out on our morning run this Tuesday to find horse carriage after horse carriage passing through the streets!  There is a yearly festival for all the gauchos at the end of September and they travel from all over Argentina.  My companion was all excited because last year at this time she was in Lujan, where the festival takes place.  It was exciting to see all the families going, with their horses all pretty, everyone in gaucho-gear. I love Argentina.

Perks of being with a missionary in their last transfer: (Lets be honest, the list is endless because if they have worked hard the whole time to become the best missionary they can be, they are awesome missionaries- such is the case with Hermana Salas- but this is one of the BEST perks-)  We got to go the sealing of a family she taught!!!  It was heavenly.  The office called on Friday night and told us they were getting sealed and that they had called Preisdent and told him they wanted Hermana Salas to be there.  So special.  So happy.  Families really can be forever.  It is want God wants for each family.  It requires work and diligence and humility and cooperation and a whole lot of faith, and it is beautiful.

This week we focused more on sticking to the plans we make each night and the Lord showed us that He is leading us to where He wants us to be.  We found a lot of new people who were ready to listen and we are excited to help them progress in this journey towards Christ.  One family is from the Dominican Republic and they have the cutest little baby boy, Mateo.  Precioso.

I love this work.  And I love you!  Be well, keep smiling.
