This week was a little bit of a slower week, with it´s ups and downs! Sadly, we had to stop visiting the Cristobal family. :( It breaks my heart, but they stopped progressing because they can´t come to church on Sunday´s. I pray that one day things will change and they can become an eternal family :) We didn´t get to work as much as we would have liked to this week either! And when we did get to work, no one was home when we went to visit them! This week was the start of Winter Break for the school´s of Argentina, so all of La Plata was out celebrating!
We spent all day Friday in another meeting with our new mission president, except this one was only for the newer missionaries and their trainers. It was a great opportunity to think of how I can continue to help my companion, Hermana González, feel more comfortable with missionary work and create habits that will help her all throughout her mission! :) We also had delicious, super cheesy pizza for lunch, so that was a plus!
On the bright side: there was a free activity in La Plata to celebrate Winter Break, so we got to go to that with the other Hermana´s in our area! It´s called "El Mundo Magico", or Magic World :) it was basically a cheap version of Disneyland, but it was still super fun! Mickey Mouse was there, and the Disney Princesses, and... Jurassic Park! Kind of an odd mixture. We got some ice cream afterwards too! It was a good day :)
I tried something crazy this week! We had another Family Home Evening with the Paco Family this week, Rosana and Raul, and they cooked asado for us! (BBQ) Except, it wasn´t just an ordinary asado with chicken and beef! They also cooked Chinchulin, which is cow stomach/intestines! I just about died!! It took some convincing, but my companion and I decided to try it in the end! I think it must be an acquired taste ;) yikes! Haha!
Here´s a quote for the week :)

Take care, love you all! :)
