Rivadavia Week 9: The Argentine Hospital Experience!

Well this week was just crazy.  Yesterday we decided to cook breakfast for a family before church cause we want them to come to church.  So I was super excited and just cooking away and I decided to cut open something with an old pocket knife.  Well I cut my finger instead haha.  Blood was everywhere and my comp was dying.   The members put salt on it to stop the blooding and that was so painful and they were like we need to go to the hospital and I was like no its fine!   They came to church with us so YAY!!  But during church my finger would not stop bleeding so we went to the hospital.  They opened it up and could see my little tendons and so they started operating.  They were talking to me in Spanish thinking I can talk back when they are jabbing needles in me. But in the end everything was good and it was a fun adventure!  We don't really do to many exciting things on the mission so I needed that little adrenaline rush! 

Also this week... I FOUND PEANUT BUTTER!  I was crying it was the best day ever!   Prayers are answered haha.

We have been working really hard this week and I decided I would have been a really good pioneer cause I can walk forever and ever.  I also have a watch tan line so I guess you could say I'm a legit missionary now.  

Also one day we were teaching a lady named Ellie who is amazing and so sweet. Well someone knocked at the door and it was a Jehovah Witness.  WOW.  I froze up.  She started drilling us on everything we believe.  We responded with scriptures and then we realized we weren't getting anywhere.  She tried to tell us we need to drink to have fun in this life and God wants us to be happy.  We remembered the conference talk of respecting other religions and we told her we wanted to sing her a song.  So we sang a hymn and left.  We were dying after but we realized we handled it well and we were respectful.  We did all that we could and the Lord will now do his part!  

This week was filled with more hard trials.  But I was on the bus one day thinking, and it hit me.  Missionary Work will ALWAYS be hard.  But when am I ever going to experience this again?  It's like anything else.......Being a mom, going to school, having a church calling, going through hard times at work, when will we ever experience this again?  We only have limited time here on the earth and everything we go through is part of a plan. So that's the best thing is we only get certain experiences one time.  So we need to live them up!  We all have hard trials and go through hard things but every single one of us has amazing talents and abilities to make it through these hard times.  I'm grateful for all your support!  Love you all and have an amazing week!
