A week all over Buenos Aires South!
This week went fast and next monday I will be recieving a new companion now that my companion has been here for 6 months and its time for her to leave :( Im really sad about that because we have such a great time together, but ive never had a problem with any of my companions so im sure ill love my new one just as much. Plus, hermana Fierro and I finish the mission together so we will be reunited in 3 transfers.
Last monday we went as a zone to watch movies in the chapel, we watched Minions! After we went and got ice cream, which was really funny! Missionaries+sugar+music= crazy haha.
Then we went to a park that has flags from all over the world, the NZ flag wasnt there so I took a photo with the one from Chile as a shout out to all my Chileans and also with the USA Flagt- shout out to all my yankees!
Tuesday I had to give a stress management class to the zone which was really funny haha. I had them all do breathing exersizes haha. But seriously, some of them really needed it, the zone was weirdly tense on tuesday until the class had them all laughing.
Tuesday night I spent the night in Aldo Bonzi in a mass sleepover party with 14 other sister missionaries! Yes, we did go to bed at 10:30! My daughter Hermana Rodriguez and I may have talked for a litttttttle but after that though... We have matching cups! Mine sayds in spanish: I love my daughter and hers says: I love my mummy! haha
Wednesday we had the amazing priveledge of going to the Buenos Aires Temple to help with the deep cleaning they do every 6 months. The temple is closed for a few weeks while they do maintenence and we got to help. A group of 20 of us were assigned to clean the huge cristal chandelier in the celetial room and it was a real job. A machine lowered it and we had to take each cristal off and clean it with alcohol, dry it, change the lighbulbs and then in the end we put the chadelier back together. It has over 5000 cristals and weights 150kg and has 111 lightbulbs! It took 20 people and 3 hours and it didnt seem dirty at all haha. Obviously being the awkward person I am I dropped and broke a cristal and then cut open my foot on the broken cristal. The celestial room is pure white and here I a bleeding standing on a piece of cardboard so I dont stain the carpet. They have replacement cristals thankfully.
The temple engeneer in my my ward and he told us yesterday he is going to give us each a cristal! Ive attached a image of the chandelier.
Thursday and Friday we were in Los Flores in exchanges with Hermana Shepard and Hermana Molinero. It was pretty fun, but we have to travel three hours there and back and sleep on the floor so we always arrive home pretty shattered.
Funny moment of the week: My companion heard a lady saying "Hello" and she thought it was a parrot and so started saying "Listen its a parrot!!" Dont think the lady was really impressed!
Its getting cold here now, but i prefer to work in the cold than in the heat any day!
Hope you are all well,
Love Hermana Wilson
