When we would go by, Maria Ines would often play the guitar and we would all sing. Her favorite songs were, “I like to Dance,” and “Auld Lang Syne” in Spanish. It seems the words mean more in Spanish. “It’s nothing more than an until later, it’s nothing more than a brief goodbye. Very soon, around the fire we’ll be together again.”
We had a lot of fun singing, telling stories, and doing missionary work together.
I visited the house of Mari Ines this past week. She now lives in Salt Lake. Isabel was there, as was Alejandra. Maria Ines had married Jose Martinez, who was baptized during the time I was there by the other missionaries in our branch. They told stories of how the old branch, which was newly formed while we were there, but didn’t have their own church so we went to San Fernando for church, is now numerous wards.
