Hey Everyone!!

So this week, all of our plans and citas were dashed to pieces, when we got last-minute noticias that we have to travel to Resistencia to fill our papers to stay in the country. They are technically making me a resident... although the papers will probably not come back until after I am done with my mission, I can legally stay in the country while I am “waiting.”

When we got to Resistencia, we immediately went to work with the misioneras of Barrio 4, Hermana Beers and Hermana López.. We recieved a very warm welcome as we went to a Noche de Hogar with a family that is really progressing in the house of a family in the ward. I quickly found out that these people were old investigators of Hermana Schmutz, as she started her mission in Barrio 4. It feels rather awkward and familiar here, because I have heard so many stories about this place, and Hermana Schmutz´s writing is everywhere in this apartment.

That night it thundered and rained throughout the night (yes... its an important detail.)

This morning we went to the mission home, and started the work on our papers. When we went to the Registro Civil to do our papers, the afteraffects of the storm were sorely felt, that, athough it was technically open, noone came to work for the rain... That´s Argentina for ya... EVERYTHING here stops for the rain.

So we have to stay in Resistencia yet ANOTHER day, lose more time in our area, in hopes that they will show up for work tomorrow. Meanwhile, we are still hanging out with Hermana Beers and Hermana López.

Sorry this one is short, but thats the mish for you.
