Youth Activity

We had and activity for the youth in the Branch and their friends. We had 3 members of the Branch and 5 non members of the Branch attend. This was our first activity in a while the weather is starting to warm up and the sun is stay up longer. This means people are willing to come out of their houses and participate in activities.
Top row left to right: Elder Caufield Guiliana Piriz, Romina (friend of Jimena), Jimena, Romina (friend of Jimena, both friend have the same name) Elder Delbar.
Bottom row, Augustin Piriz, Gonzo (friend of Gabriel), Gabriel, (friend of Gabriel)
Janice made cinnamon twists (Tracey Graham's recipe) for treats at the activity. She also thought that a cold glass of milk would be the perfect combination. The kids asked us is the mild hot? Is it Skim Milk, you want us to drink it? We were shocked to learn that they only drink milk with hot chocolate or coffee or hot with sugar. They all looked at us like you got to be kidding. We continue to learn the customs here..... They loved the cinnamon twists and Elder Delbar got to drink about a dozen glasses of milk that Janice had poured out of the blue bag you see in the picture. He was great with that!

We taught them all how to play "Spoons" and they loved it. They did not want to stop when we tried to play other games. Some of the young men did not even bother to look at the cards as they went around the table they were just concerned about making sure they got a spoon when the person that got 4 cards in a row picked up the first spoon. It was fun to watch and play. They all wanted to come again the next week, but they all forgot. So the Elders and us played a few games of 7 up while we waited to see if anyone was coming and of course we had to indulge in some Uruguayian versions of Molasses cookies. Since they do not have molasses here we have to substitute honey for molasses and brown sugar for molasses. They have a different taste but they are still good.
