We've just had so many wonderful experiences here in the Falda and I'm excited to work hard this next transfer with ALL my heart. I'm super excited and blessed for the opportunities God has placed in our path thus far in the Falda and hope to fulfill His duties.
I also just have to mention how much I just LOVE my mission President and his wife and how close I have become to them. They have seriously become "my parents". The other day, my companion and I left to ask President a question to a project he has me working on and as we came in the house, Hermana Parreno was making dinner for a reunion and she looks at both my comp and I and says, ..."can you do me a HUGE favor and cut these onions for me?....I just did my make-up and I don't want to cry and get it all messed up." So here is my comp and I and President cutting onions as she is cooking them on the stove. As I was busy cutting onions and talking, I hear hermana Parreno asking, "Your not crying?" "I'm dying over here!"....The thing was, I couldn't even smell the onion. It didn't even phase the three of us. Well, then she hands everything over to President and leaves the room and comes back and I suddenly turn around and see.....two thick, black streaks of mascara running down her cheeks! I suddenly looked at President and he just shakes his head and asks acts like it didn't even phase him. Ha, as my comp just stands there laughing! :) It's always a good laugh at the house of the Parrenos. It's been such a privilege to have them as our Presidents and I can't imagine any other person in their place. They have such strong testimonies and they know their purpose as a President and have done wonders to this mission and to their missionaries. I will never forget what they have done for me and having them be role models in my eyes. This next month we are receiving new mission Presidents as the Parrenos will be going back to Espana. I'm super sad to be saying goodbye, but keeping my head up and looking forward to meeting the new Presidents. The Lord has some wonderful plans in store and I'm looking forward to having lunch with them every week. :) Jaja
