"I blinked . .and then it was gone"

Holy Guacamole!!!! This is the last email from this missionary before she embarks on the journey home. . . How weird is that. 
Oh well, this week was super interesting.  Besides the fact that it went super fast. Tues evening, all day Wed and all day Thurs, I was sick in the pension. Let me tell you it was so no fun!!!!!!!! 
Something is going on with my body but ya know I really couldn't
tell you what it is.  But it hit me hard, Wed and Thurs it took all I had just to get out of bed and walk to the kitchen or the bathroom. I am really good at going pale too. :) and just my luck I would get sick right before our temple trip on Sat. but thanks to a LOT of rest and liquids we were able to work on Friday and go to the temple with our investigators on Sat.  And OH WOW what an experience it was.  I didn't realize just how much I love and miss the temple.  It was so cool to be able to see their reactions when we got there, to be able to see a hope in their eyes to one day be able to enter this magnificent house of the Lord.  
With Marcelo, oh they are so excited to get married and him getting baptized to be able to enter their together!! We had a lesson with them last night explaining more about what goes on with baptisms and that after a year they can enter the mysterious part of the temple and be sealed as a family for time and all eternity!! Oh what happiness it is to be able to help them with their goals to become a family.
Our other investigator, Florencia is just like her mom and is super content.  It was so cool to have her there with her mom and her kids, (her husband, yes she is married-that is the biggest problem that we have here is that not many people are married, works all the time as a taxi driver and we have not been able to talk with him) and they were so stinkin' happy the entire time we were there.  We have an appointment with them tonight to have a FHE and talk more about temples! Oh it is so cool to watch the changes take place! Even now I still get a little giddy. hehe 
I STILL can't believe that this will be my last week in Argentina, and that sooner than I will like, I will be back in good ole Utah. It really feels like a dream the way it all flew by, but I am grateful for the friendships that I have made down here, for the chance to help others realize their potential as children of God and also for Facebook to keep in touch with them all. haha
I hope you all have a good week, Mom don't get distracted too much. And the next time you hear from me it will be my lovely voice. haha
Love you all, see ya soon (that is SUPER weird to write)
