The Rastelli family has been so helpful to us since we arrived. Sister Adriana Rastelli is the famous cook of the mission, and at zone conference time the whole family comes to help. Yemina (right) is home from Idaho for the month and will be helping me with my language skills. Jonathan is planning on a mission in a few months, and President Rastelli serves as counselor in the Mission Presidency.
The flu has hit the mission. Here we see Dr. Petersen checking out Elder Knight. We have many missionaries down with flu and cold symptoms.
Here Elder Lambert is having an ingrown toenail removed. He was quite brave. He is checking out his photos on his camera of the surgery. I am sure the photo will be used for future generations, bragging rights about having his toenail ripped from his foot in Argentina.
But not everything at zone conference is hard work. Here Elder Sargent and Elder Fuentes are coloring the front of their Mission Cookbook. The book is the culmination of 4 months of work. It finally hit the press and will be a prized possession for years to come. The favorite Argentine recipes would be Dulce le leche, Alfahors, milanesa, Hermana Rastelli's Pastel de Papas.
