Walk of Shame

HAPPY PDAY EVERYONE! I am happy healthy and still down here in Argentina. Twas a great week. Here are points of interest.

1. On the colectivo this week we got on and I realized the bus driver was playing music (which was rare). I realized after a few seconds of listening that he was playing none other than TAYLOR SWIFT THE ONE AND ONLY! Don't get your hopes up it wasn't a new song but it was my little brother, Jonah's favorite - "Starlight". I sat in silence and enjoyed for a minute or two before I had to get off. If that isn't a tender mercy then I don't know what is.

2. Because Hermana Greener is an hermana leader, we get to do divisions with other hermanas to make sure everything is going well. We took a taxi for about 40 minutes to get to the other area and we spent the day there. Hermana Calla has been very sick and not been able to sleep more than 30 minutes a night so when we got to the pension of the other Hermanas and she actually fell asleep, it was a miracle. We decided to stay the night. The only problem was that we did not have any of our stuff with us. So we ended up sleeping in our skirts and then going to church in the very same ones the next morning. We did not look cute but honestly it was a step up from the "club wear" and jeans that some people come to church in.

3. At one of our investigators houses we found A MONO!!!!!!! (picture included)

4. It was a really hard week for finding new people to teach. We don't have any steady investigators right now and we have been doing a lot of contacting. It gets really discouraging when it's just rejection after rejection as you are walking in the humidity. As we were walking, I got thinking about the Savior's earthly mission. If the Son of God faced rejection, hatred, and suffering on his mission, why shouldn't I? What I face is literally nothing to what the Savior faced and he served for a lot longer than 18 months. What a perfect example of a missionary. Needless to say, the Lord is humbling me daily.

I love you all. Thank you for your love and prayers and support. Let me know if I can do anything for you. Keep smiling.

Love, Hermana Stirling
