Last Wednesday, December 12th, we took lunch down to the elders in La Rioja. On the way down we passed this rather large dust devil and had to snap a picture of it. There were several cars along the side of the road taking pictures of it with us. While crossing the road it fell apart so this was the last of it right here!
We made pulled pork sandwiches and they were very happy with it. In front and to the left are: Elders Peyton/UT, Shumway/UT, Shumway/UT, Kohler/UT, Wood/UT, Chiroque/Peru, Hunt/UT, and Ojeda/Argentina. Yes, there are 2 Elder Shumways in La Rioja.
We had a small program where we sang a couple Christmas songs then a community choir of retired people sang several Argentine, folkloric Christmas songs. Following the music we went outside and had a Christmas pageant with the traditional story from Luke 2 as well as prophecies from the Book of Mormon. All the youth in Catamarca were able to participate. It was wonderful!
The Cordoba temple is moving along with its construction. It was fabulous seeing all the progress they've made since we were there about 7 months ago.
