New Years Eve

New Years Eve is almost a bigger celebration than Christmas here in Argentina. The partying begins early and goes the whole night. At midnight the fireworks start going off. But not just in one location. From our 6th floor balcony we could see neighborhoods all around the city, exploding large rocket fireworks. The noise lasted for an hour and sounded like gun fire all over the city. This is our third New Year here and so it was no surprise, but each time another large rocket went off, I was counting the cost.
We extend to all of our missionaries and families a wonderful, safe, and healthy New Year.

I was thinking of you on New Years! It being such a big deal there! Hope it was a hit! Your last one there. How does that sound? Miss you!
