Update #29

Well hello there lovelies. Thanks for stopping by and stalking me. Haha kidding! Anyway, what happened this week? A lot of good things. First of all, I lalalove my new area. Its super fun! Also because my compañera and I are like the best of friends so it makes things so much more better.

We burned brownies this week, which is hilariously sad.

Oh and I also have my own vegetable store here in Metan. Who knew, right? I have a lot of family here so I gotta work hard and baptize all of them! hahaha 

Anyway, this week flew by so fast! We had our branch conference this weekend and it was super great.  The leaders focused a lot on missionary work and eternal families. I also had the chance to meet the rest of the members here in the branch. Its such a cozy little branch and I love it already! There are still a lot of things to work on but that's why were here!

This Saturday Elder Cook will visit us, which is super awesome. All of us missionaries will gather to hear his talk. It will be super spiritual.

My invitation for all of you who are reading this is to read the Book of Mormon before Christmas! Its my goal too :) Remember, you too have to pay your daily tithing, AKA 2 hours and 45 minutes of your time to the Lord!

Love you lots,
Hermana Garcia

Salta la Linda!

Well hello there friends. I am here in my super brand new area right now. I'm in Salta, Metan. The place is way different from my old area. Its much more greener hahaha! But I love it already. My compañera and I live with other two missioneras. Let me tell you one thing, it is so fun! Its my first time living with another set of missionaries. At first I taught it would be a bit chaotic and messy (it kinda is) but I love it because were just all chaotic together hahaha But when it gets to studying and personal time, its business time. Everyone is focused.

My new compañera is Hermana Lugo. Shes from Nicaragua. Shes the only member in her family! Shes so valiant to serve a mission and be a great example to her family. I love her already shes so funny and we just hit it off really fast.  She always have these hilarious jokes and is just the sunshine in the rainy days of Metan.

It was a bit hard to leave my first area. I was serving there for 6 months and it was just hard to let it go (insert frozen song here jaja!). Its like I am from Santiago del Estero. It was like I was originally born there. I know the streets at the back of my hand, I even know where I can buy cheaper goods! The members didn't want to see me go, they were asking the mission president to let me stay! Hahaha. Oh how I love the people in my area. The members cried, I cried, even the dogs cried! It was a pretty hard break off session. But I know that I should go where the Lord wants me to go. I know that there are people who are waiting for me here in Metan. Now, I am just so happy that I had the privilege to serve the people of Santiago del Estero. Now I am off to embark and serve the people of Metan. Super excited to but into work what I learned for these past few months!

Also another sad but great thing was a good amount of the people in my Zone are on their way home right now! Man, I am just horrible at saying goodbye. We were all in the same bus ride but I got off first because my area was so much more closer than the mission office. It was sad. Like the Niagara Falls left Canada and went here in Metan. I was just bawling my eyes out. My little family is on their way to their family! I'm happy but sad at the same time haha. Man, these people are my besties not only here in the mission but for eternity. 

I lalalove each and everyone of you! Stay safe and when you see yellow snow, its not lemon flavored, trust me!

With all the love that I can give,
Hermana Garcia
