Fireflies and Catwalks

Exchanges

Heyyyy Family!!

Hows everyone doing?!  This week was awesome.  I love this area more and more everyday!  Did you know they have FIREFLIES here?!   ITS SO COOL.  Also this week we did divisions with our Sister Training Leaders. Extra fun since my training leader is now Hermana Campbell (my red head trainer).  We had too much fun reminiscing old times in Alberdi and celebrating Halloween/10 months in the mission! (can you believe its already been that long?!)
Divisions are always awesome though because we always see a ton of miracles, and a ton of funny things as well.  So like every afternoon there’s always a whole ton of kids at this park that we always have to walk by to get anywhere.  And every time we walk by they always like corner us until we give them pass a long cards.  So the other day we were walking by, and they tell me that they want me to do a runway walk because I’m tall.  And I was like, no, I’m a missionary, missionaries don’t catwalk!  So then they start chanting for me to do it, and then they steal my books.  And I was so embarrassed because I didn’t want people to think weird of the missionaries.  So finally I take like two steps with my hands on my hips and then made them give me back my books.  Manipulative little children thought they were so funny… haha.
The people here are WONDERFUL and I just keep growing in love with them more and more each day.  We’ve been trying to do little acts of service for people lately, like little notes for people’s birthdays or helping them wash the dishes after they feed us lunch…and its true when they say that service is the key to happiness.  Like as a missionary, we’re constantly serving people.  But I feel like sometimes we forget the reason why we’re serving. SO my goal for the week is to actively serve and to do it, not because that’s what I was called to do, but because I truly love the people and want them to feel the love of Jesus Christ.  It’s SUCH a privilege to be a representative of HIM.  “I’ll miss pointing to my name, and finding His there too.”
Love you all oh so much!  The church is true!
Con amor,
Hermana Strong
