La Emilia

La Emilia. San Nicolás, my current area, is a small city all by itself. However, every Friday we travel on a 15-minute bus ride to an even smaller town called "La Emilia." It is incredibly small and actually doesn´t even appear on google maps. Though small in size, they have strong church attendance and some incredible programs. Roughly 30 people go to church on Sunday, and they always have the highest percentage of members attend in the stake. 

I basically love this small town. It is about 10 blocks by 10 blocks, and that´s it. The people who live there generally have good jobs, and the area is quite a bit richer than the majority of San Nicolás. The people have cars and drive to San Nicolás to work, or some of them even go all the way to Rosario. Within the small little town they have a supermarket, a small little chapel, a small athletic club, and basically everything you need to live the good life. 

Generally speaking, the people treat us better as well. We always have lunch with a member family since they rotate every Friday. Plus we teach a lot of lessons to many families. Right now, since all of the kids are on school vacation, we have lots of families willing to listen to a short message. It is great. I enjoy traveling there every Friday, and the branch president is really cool too!

Alright, that´s about it for this week. I hope you all enjoyed it.

Thanks so much for your support.
