Fisrt off I would like to wish you all HAPPY HOLIDAYS or as they say here "Felices Fiestas Che" I can´t believe it´s christmas allready. It´s wierd having it in the middle of summer but it´s pretty fun at the same time. For christmas I am excited to look over the city and see all the fireworks. Here in argentina they light off fireworks for christmas. It almost feels like the 4th of july but in december. We are planning on passing christmas together with a member family from chile. They are super cool and they live up on the side of the mountain so we will be able to see the fireworks all the better. My equadorian companion and I are doing fantastic. Elder Cardenas is a boss or as the argentines say. "él es un Capo"
On the 19th we had a zone activity and I had a very super spiritual experience I would like to tell you guys. In the activity we passed through downtown and we had a poster and we contacted to try and get people to write things that they are greatful for. It was interesting. a few people wrote on it but the majority just tried to ignore us. I was with another Elder named Elder Whitworth and he and i just got tired of being rejected so I thought. Let´s start singing. We both pulled out our hymnbooks and started to sing the christmas hymns and let me tell you, music is POWERFULL. The whole atitude of the people changed. Some stopped and listened to us and I could see that they were so happy and loved hearing us sing. One family asked us if they could take pictures with us so we let them and they loved it. Their kids also loved it as well :D The lord works in very small and simple ways and music is one of them. I´m glad that the lord was able to use our talents and gifts and that he gave us that opportunity to share. :D Keep sharing your gifts you guys you all have something unique about you. Don´t hesitate to share :D I love you all and you are in my prayers.
