General Conference is my Favorite Holiday!


I hope you are all well! And that you got to watch general conference [lds.org] because it was superb, como siempre! This week was a little crazy and we didn't have too much time to work, but it was great and I am so happy. I had to go to Salta (7-ish hours on a bus...its the bayst [best:)], I love it) for 2 days to do more paperwork to be legal here one day. Then we had interviews with President Chaparro (while we waited, our zone had a yerba mate party!) and something that I really liked that the President said is that I am in this area for a specific purpose. I don't really know what it is, but I guess it's still cool, right? haha. He is such a good man and very in tune with the Spirit in order to help each of us with our individual needs. Then came GENERAL CONFERENCE which is seriously the best! In the closing song of one session they were singing "The Spirit of God" and I was pretty sure Jesus was gonna come right through the window.

Something that I love about Argentina is that when it's conference time people come from towns far away to watch it in the church so everyone stays between sessions and we have a huge picnic. It's the best! Well after conference we traveled again, this time to Tucumán, where we will be for a few days doing more trámites (paperwork. my favorite.) We are staying in a nice hotel, and last night I couldn't sleep because when I sleep in hotels I get nervous for the big race tomorrow like in my youth but then I remembered, "I don't have a big race tomorrow. Just a bunch of paperwork." So then I could sleep better, haha.

Wellll I am well and so happy to be on the mission. Hermana Vargas and I are enjoying every minute of it! Alejandro and Cynthia went out of town so we haven't seen them but they are doing well and we are going to see them again this week.

Well that's enough rambling for today! I love being a missionary and I love my Heavenly Father and my Savior and my family! I invite you to go through your notes from conference and make an action plan to put what you learned in practice. "Therefore, whoso HEARETH these sayings of mine and DOETH them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who built his house upon a rock." (Matthew 7:24, also 3 Nephi 14:24.) 

Well have a great week, love you!
Hermana Hooke :)
