We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Did you experience any cultural conflicts on your mission?
nIt is customary in Argentina for men and women to kiss each other on the cheek. However, it is against mission rules for us to kiss or get kissed by anybody. So, when I first got to Argentina, men would try to kiss me on the cheek, and I wouldn’t know what to do. I didn’t know the language very well yet, so I would just freak out! My companion told me to let them kiss me and explain later. But what if a cute guy kissed one of us!? That’s just asking for trouble.
