6th Mission Assignment - Rawson, Argentina


Elder Baldeon

Capilla Abiertas, Dental Shenanigans and Discothech Memories

Hola Amigos y Familia,

I would imagine that if you are following my regular communications, that you know how I like to structure my emails by now, and so if I begin with the last item in the title, will not be a surprise for any of you.

This week was a good one, with lots of work done, laughs shared, and funny Missionary shenanigans executed.
First of I've found a sister in the Rawson ward that would get along great with my mom! My comp and I went to give service to her by helping to gather and chop firewood, with her sons. To keep us all motivated, she brought along a sound system with all kinds of 70's and 80's discotech and dancefloor classics. I made mouths drop when I started singing along to half of them that I already knew by heart. The older generation said I was talking like I was a 40-50 year old - about the memories those songs brought back for me, but we had a grand old time!
I've also been a fan of hockey players in the sense of how many 'battle' scars they always get (chipped or missing teeth, broken noses, etc.) and I was able to experience that this week! Half of my front tooth (that I previously chipped as a child) came out, making me look like a hockey player, or maybe a hillbilly, or a clown... The comments from my companion's sense of humor and other Missionary and Church member friends are endless! I just always tell them that they should see the other guy 😹 - jajaja! This Wednesday, I have a dentist appointment to get it fixed up and to get me smiling normally again! Yay!
In other news, the Ward next door had an open chapel tour which was a lot of fun, and seeing as how we both meet in the same chapel, it was a win-win for both our Wards! We had a great time, and lots of people came on in to get to know the church! It was awesome!
Also, the world cup has got Argentina going nuts after they lost to France this week which is sad for us - but hey it makes people sad and receptive to a Missionary visit to cheer them up - jajaja!
Other than that, it's been a pretty good week and I hope you're all doing great!
