Navidad Blanca

We had a conference in Tarija Friday (A city close to Bermejo that´s a lot bigger and has more than double the missionaries here).  On the windy 3 hour drive to Tarija, 2 elders threw up, and my companion and I were also just 1 step away from joining the club (probably because our inner child had told us the night before that it would be a good idea to eat a whole pizza the night before a 3 hour monte russo [roller coaster]).  We arrived and every zone sang Christmas songs that we had prepared.  After the other zones went and sang standard songs from the hymnbook, we blew them away with a Sally DeFord arrangement of Oh Holy Night (with a solo by Elder Casdorph).

We are excited for the noche blanca that we will have this Saturday, although this time, it will only be 14 people getting baptized because 10 of them had scheduling conflicts and had to get baptized a week early.  All the members are excited for what will soon be the Bermejo Stake (probably in May or June, the district here will become a stake).

All is going well here and I´ll let you know more next week.
